Place Your Bets...Rodgers


Prior to the start of the season the NFC North's hottest topic was undoubtably "Quarterbacks," with three of the four teams in the division handing the ball to new starters.  Nine games into the 2009 season it seems that quarterback play has impacted the division more than any other factor.  Not necessarily in the manner in which it was at one time thought.

 

Detroit drafted Matthew Stafford number one overall; the Bears made what most argued at the time was the biggest acquisition in trading for the young Pro-bowler Jay Cutler;  as we all know, the Vikings seduced future HOFer Brett Favre out of retirement as the final piece of the puzzle.  The Packers fielded the only returning starter, Aaron Rodgers.

This post will highlight Aaron Rodgers and the Packers week 11 match-up: 

Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers has been discussed as one the leagues best quarterbacks.  He is  if by best you mean worst  currently leading the league in sacks taken with 41, for a per game average of 4.55.  The Packers face a San Franciso 49ers defense currently rank 23rd (tied) in sacks with 17.  Logic would tell you they will be moving up this list after this weeks game.  Two weeks ago the Packers made a rag tag group of defeated deck swabbers into a cohesive unit of victorious swash bucklers on their way to six sacks (ranked 23rd).
