There was so much talk about the Green Bay Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers before the season. After the 2011 Super Bowl trophy and Rodgers' MVP in that game, they received plenty of attention leading up to this season. The Packers were a favorite to repeat their Super Bowl and Rodgers was a popular league MVP prediction.
Somehow, he's more than surpassed all that hype through one quarter against the New Orleans Saints.
Through the first quarter of the 2011 NFL season, Rodgers is on pace for 12 touchdowns through the air this game. He won't keep that pace up but his precision and ability to spread out the field and throw so accurately is incredibly impressive.
Rodgers' numbers through one quarter: 14-of-15 passes completed, 188 yards and three touchdowns.
If you don't follow football, that's would be a very good game, let alone just one quarter.
