Flashback Friday: Aaron Rodgers’ First Touchdown Pass
You may have noticed last week we did a ‘Flashback Friday’ post with Reggie White, and it did pretty well. Therefore, we’re going to roll it back. This time with Aaron Rodgers. This week, we had a video posted of Rodgers’ first-ever touchdown pass against the Minnesota Vikings on a Monday Night Football game. I was a sophomore in college when Rodgers made his debut on the big stage. As someone who was a Rodgers guy from the start (That’s a fact, you can ask the city of Wauwatosa), I remember feeling vindicated him watching him succeed in his first game as a Packers starter. You know what they say, the rest is history.

There are so many things to watch, even though, there isn’t much time on the video. Look at Rodgers’ footwork, it’s absolutely ridiculous. Or the way he fit in a pass to the end zone. There were signs of greatness right out of the box, and if the Packers had a better defense that year, they might have been a playoff team. Rodgers looked so comfortable too with guys coming directly at him.
Related, remember how bad Tony Kornheiser was at being an analyst for football? Holy shit, he did not fit in.
