~I assumed this week’s Have at It would fall along party lines, but I was pleasantly surprised. I asked you to name the NFC North’s best player this season, and early on VikesWinItAll defied apparent allegiances and named Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That took some courage! 

Woodson almost single-handedly won a couple of games this year. How many plays he makes against Kurt Warner in the Wildcard game could be pivotal.

In perusing your comments, I found dominant support for Packers cornerback Charles Woodson and an interesting debate between the merits of Rodgers and Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre.

VikesWinItAll gave the edge to Rodgers because of “the beating he took early in the year.” VikesWinItAll continued: “He does not have an AP type back that is a threat so defenses know they are going to pass which put tremendous pressure on him to perform. His defense was also in flux early in the year adjusting to the 3-4 which did not put Rodgers in good field position often. Favre of course had a great year and is the only reason the Vikes have any kind of shot this post season.”

Rodgers’ and Favre’s passing statistics were close enough to be a wash. So machinemanske supported Rodgers because of the importance of the quarterback position and his 314 rushing yards, which I neglected to include in the original post. That total leads all NFL quarterbacks.
