    Peyton Manning threw 28 interceptions his rookie year. Sitting on the bench for several years does not make anyone good. It just delays finding out if they are good or not. It takes getting live reps and multiple games to make mistakes to find out if a QB can sink or swim.

    You can't point to Rodgers first few years and correlate his success now to his sitting for a few years. If Farve was out of the picture sooner, he would have just been playing at a higher level sooner.

    Completely unprovable and against logic, you don't go from mid 50s comp % to mid 60's just b/c you played. This is complete revisionist history. GB fans couldn't wait to jettison Rodgers b/c of how poorly he played. There was ZERO indication the kid would be great, let alone one of the best. He needed a lot of work, and you don't get that while learning the next weeks gameplan.

    Manning threw 28int's his first season behind a completely garbage team, that earned the team a very high pick, Rodgers never had that, and Mannings rookie year was at a time when the rules were not 100% slanted towards the O, what he did is completely irrelevant to what Rodgers did or could have done.

    So you hypothesis for Rodgers going from 50% completion to 60% is because he sat on the bench for several years? How does that make sense to you? I'm completely baffled by what you are saying. Rodgers needed lots of work, and "you don't get that by learning the next weeks gameplan"? That exactly how you get good. You get good by playing for years and improving your game. If a team sees you are getting better every year they keep you. How does this sound like revisionist history?

    Rodgers what he is at now by playing and by having the tools. He had the faith of his coaches and his GM. Fan support does not mean anything. Payton Manning himself said that it took that first year to adjust to NFL speed.

    Rodgers was a first round pick. He wasn't #1 overall, but he was considered to be worth a #1 overall. What, you think they were going to give up on him after a couple years because the fans were unhappy Farve left? Their GM is very focused on developing his own players.

    Your also taking very small sample sizes for your completion percentages. One game or two on year compared to a couple games the next year aren't large enough to mean anything. It's a full season and the experience that you get from being the starter are what matter.
