This is getting to be a habit … Wait! I think that’s what I said last week when Aaron Rodgers was named the FedEx Air NFL Player of the week.
But it’s true. For the fourth consecutive week, Rodgers has won the award. His performance last Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings earned him the honor once again as he helped propel the Packers to a 7-0 record and a two-game lead over the Detroit Lions in the NFC North Division.
Can he do it again this week? Wait! He can’t do it this week … It’s the Packers bye week, but what the heck, I think FedEx should just give it to him anyway. He’s playing heads and shoulders above the rest of the QBs in the league, so they might as well.
But with that in mind, who do you think will win the battle of the rookies this week? Minnesota vs. Carolina?
I’m sticking my neck out on this one … I’m going with Cam Newton. I think he’s going to have a huge week against Christian Ponder and the Minnesota Vikings … He will outplay the other rookie and continue to show us why he was the number one overall pick.
So, here’s to Aaron Rodgers and may he come back next week after the bye playing even hotter than he was before the bye.
There are more honors awaiting him.
