    The Packers were finally on the rise but now it's back down. Will it be Rodgers or a new QB next season?

    He's hinted at retirement in the past, but this is the most concrete evidence there's ever been. It really looks like he's done. It's tough for him to go out on an interception that cost his team a chance to go to the Super Bowl, but he really did have a great season overall.

    I wonder if trading Corey Williams had anything to do with it. If I'm Favre, and I see them trading one of their top defensive players just to get a draft pick, I'd really question the team's desire to win now.

    I was almost feeling bad for Aaron Rodgers. Nothing against Favre, but if you are top rated qb, I believe a team should only draft you if they plan to work you in within 2.5 years, or at least trade you to a team who willing to work you in. While there are no guarantees in the NFL, I believe this should be one of them, as some positions are less about the money, and more about opportunity, and QB is one of them. Now we will see what Aaron Rogers has to offer. Should be interesting.
