Comebacks are so stupid.


Those "stupid comebacks" create the aura of great QB's who can make anyone better and hungrier.

That is because these players knew they not only got a game-managing-QB, but a guy that can "make your dreams come true". That's an emotional thing and THAT IS what makes a leader greatly accepted.

Most players like JJ, Nelson & Co. might know the talent of Aaron, but they don't know the "magic" of him...yet. That comes if he can guide one or two comeback wins and it will boost confidence but also accountability no coach can teach. Because dropping a pass is bad, dropping a pass from a MVP is worse, but dropping a pass from an hero is unthinkable. Rodgers hasn't reached that level yet and therefore GB can't win those below-average games. And that is a disadvantage in a league that has a one-game-playoff-system.


Well wtf is it pip, confidence or coincidence?

I'll take the QB who wins the most games, not the one that puts his team in a losing situation and leads them to a comeback a small percentage of the time. Rodgers doesn't turn the ball over, thus resulting in sustaining leads and/or building on leads.

Let me just end this entire thread with a little excerpt from Sports Illustrated.

Quote:
Turns out there's a very good reason you're not hearing much about Rodgers and his ability to mount fourth-quarter comebacks like quarterbacks Tim Tebow of Denver or Eli Manning of the Giants. During Green Bay's 19-game winning streak, the Packers have never trailed in the fourth quarter.
You got that? Nineteen games, never a fourth-quarter deficit. It's the longest such streak in NFL history, and it's not even close, with the Sammy Baugh-led 1942-43 Washington Redskins putting together a 13-game run. Green Bay was tied in the fourth quarter with the Giants in Week 13, and again last year in Week 17 at home against the Bears, but that's it.

Despite going just 10-6 in the regular season in 2010, the Packers notably went the entire year (four postseason games included) without trailing by more than seven points at any time. That impressive streak of competitiveness died rather early this year, when Green Bay fell behind 13-0 at Carolina in Week 2, a game the Packers rallied to win 30-23.
But Green Bay has still been dominant to a ridiculous degree. The Packers have played 52 quarters so far this season, and led at the end of 44 of them, or 85 percent of the time. During the 19-game winning streak, Green Bay has had a lead at the end of 64 of its 76 quarters of play, or 84 percent.

Do you realize that Rodgers record is 44-24? That's around 30% of the games he started and NEVER TRAILING IN ANY GAME. Just that streak alone.

I don't care what about stats or his comeback ability. I just want to see him put up the same performance next week and through the Superbowl.
