CLIP REEL: THE GROWTH OF
AARON RODGERS



Somewhere, Eddie Murphy is telling someone, "Those dudes are probably honoring my characters on SNL."

[Ed's note: No idea what 'Clip Reel' is? Go here.]

How much was represented by Aaron Rodgers' first Lambeau Leap last night? A psychology undergrad could have a field day with multiple-level analysis. We've liked Rodgers ever since he was a Jeff Tedford boy, so we decided to compile some related links on the new Packers starter. You can start right here with Tirico and company breaking down his debut.

His Wiki. His Pro Football Reference. His NFL.Com page (with a bunch of videos). Some of his 2007 highlights, like when he came in for Favre in that Dallas game. Nice compilation of highlights, starting with his days at Cal. Ooh, an ESPN 'Sunday Conversation' with the man. Worth showing for context: his NFL Draft free fall. Another, more abbreviated, look at that. Pretty strong tribute video. Not as strong: this 'fantasy football expert' thinks he'll be a bust in 2008. Decent scramble against a good Cowboys defense. Aaron on Rome is Burning. A Madden 2009 comparison between Madden and Rodgers. Rodgers interview on a golf course. "The Aaron Rodgers Story" This dude calls Rodgers A-Rod. Mike Golic on Mr. Rodgers. Apparently at training camp, Rodgers didn't ride a bike like other Packers do. For shame. Good compilation of preseason highlights. Think the dude isn't legit? Remember when Cal beat USC in 2003? (Amazing game.) Fan site! SportingNews take on the debut. ESPN.Com's take.
