It'd be nice to get a couple warmup throws, but I went out there cold-turkey. And that's what a backup needs to do - be ready at any time. On this team, with Brett Favre in charge, that doesn't happen much, but if I am the No. 2 guy, I'll definitely be ready.
"Aaron Charles Rodgers" is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). Rodgers played college football for the University of California, Berkeley, where he set several career passing records, including lowest single-season and career interception rates. He was selected in the first round (24th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Packers.
After backing up Brett Favre for the first three years of his NFL career, Rodgers became the Green Bay Packers' starting quarterback in 2008 and led them to a victory in Super Bowl XLV after the 2010 NFL season; Rodgers was named Super Bowl MVP. He was named Associated Press Athlete of the Year in 2011, as well as being voted league MVP for the 2011 and 2014 NFL seasons. Rodgers has led the NFL three times in touchdown-to-interception ratio (2011, 2012, 2014), twice in passer rating (2011, 2012), touchdown passing percentage (2011, 2012) and lowest passing interception percentage (2009, 2014), and once in yards per attempt (2011).More Aaron Rodgers on Wikipedia.
That drive, probably was the best moment of camp for me so far.
It was a very good learning experience for me, ... You can learn from your mistakes and improve.
I'm going to keep plugging away. I've said from the start that whatever happens happens as long as I continue to get better. That's what's frustrating (Saturday night) because I didn't get better. I didn't make strides where I wanted to. Obviously I didn't make a strong case for being No. 2 tonight.
It was a bad throw. I kind of separated (from the rush) and tried to bring it back together. I was in between hitches and just threw a really bad ball. There's no excuse for that.
We just couldn't get anything going. Not a productive night. My goal has been not just yards or numbers, but to make good decisions and not have any turnovers. I didn't make good decisions and I had a turnover.
This is my regular season, so this is my chance to shine. I'm going to get better, but I'm never going to lose my confidence or waiver confidence-wise.
Tonight is not a setback. It's just a learning experience.
