Will Aaron Rodgers continue to play well in the regular season?  He has been playing extremly well in the preseason.  Does he have the skills to be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL?

Aaron Rodgers

I totally agree with you!  Aaron Rodgers has continued to show his stuff and if the rest of his team can keep up with him, the packers could be potencial super bowl candidates, and Aaron Rodgers will defenetly have a shot at being the MVP.

Aaron Rodgers

I truly believe Rodgers is the real deal. However, his continued growth will hinge on a few key elements:

1. Will the O-line gel quickly enough to keep him from getting beat up?

2. Will the running game (Grant) be consistent enough to keep Defenses from game planning for Rodgers and the WR's?

3. Will McCarthy take the training wheels off and allow Rodgers to open the entire field?

4. Is Jermicheal Finnley for real, and will he become the safety blanket TE like other top QB's in the NFL have? (P. Manning and Dallas Clark, Romo and Whitten, Rivers and Gates, etc)

IMO, 1 and 2 are the most important and are a must if the Pack want a chance win the division and/or make the playoffs. If 3 and 4 happen, Rodgers will be a ligitimate candidate for League MVP.

Unfortunately, the Defense is the biggest question mark as we won't trully see how good they really are until the regular season starts. If the preseaon is an indication the Packers will be the team everyone will overlook and could be the sleeper favorite in the NFC.
