Aaron Rodgers: Record Breaker

Over the sixteen years that Brett Favre played for the Green Bay Packers, he broke a lot of records, and set a lot of firsts. Most were good ones, like most consecutive starts, most TDs, most yards passing, etc.

He also set a lot of records for less enviable things like most interceptions, first to lose a playoff at home, and the first to lose a championship game at home.

But it took Favre years and years to make these record setting accomplishments.

It only took Aaron Rodgers three games to make his first first. He is the first to lose to Dallas in Green Bay. He was also the first Packer quarterback that I remember being booed at home when introduced.

Now, I'm not saying that Favre would've necessarily done better tonight, if he had been allowed to return. I don't think he would have done worse.

I still think that the Packers' problems are more systematic than just who plays at quarterback. Tonight's game showed that.

On the bright side, I did get to watch my first game in HDTV, which was kind of neat. Too bad it had to be such a stinker.
