Immortality screen update

Aaron Rodgers throws a 125.2 passer rating at the Giants. That gives him five playoff performances in which he has had a rating of higher than 112.  The people who have ever done this are:
  • Peyton Manning, ret.
  • Troy Aikman, ret.
  • Joe Flacco
  • Aaron Rodgers
  • Tom Brady
and, oh yes, with six:
  • Joe Montana, ret.
Over to you Tom.


Also this:
Aaron Rodgers didn’t have to clear his throat on the afternoon of Nov. 23, with a gaggle of reporters gathered around him. Three days earlier, Rodgers and the Packers had gone to FedEx Field and been obliterated by the Redskins, 42-24. It dropped their record to 4-6. Whispers had started about coach Mike McCarthy’s job security. And also about whether Rodgers had started slipping a little bit himself.

Maybe an assault of clichés was the order of the day.

Or maybe this: “I feel like we can run the table, I really do,” Rodgers said that day, first to ESPN. “The offense is starting to click a little bit more, we’ve just got to put together a game where we’re more consistent from the first snap to the last. We’ve been, I think, getting closer to that.”

The quote was longer. The message was simpler: hop on-board.

That was 46 days ago. The Packers have yet to lose again.
