Aaron Rodgers vs. Alex Smith
Here's a NFL.com report about the matchup between the talk of the 2005 draft, Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith. The Packers and the 49ers face each other tonight. Unfortunately for Smith, J.T. O'Sullivan will be starting for the 49ers.
Winner among NFL quarterbacks Alex Smith and Aaron Rodgers a tough call -- LA Times. Sam Farmer writes: "The cash disparity told the story. Smith's contract guaranteed him $24.5 million -- almost five times as much as Rodgers was assured. And whereas Smith would play right away, Rodgers would wait again, holding a clipboard for the most durable quarterback in NFL history. A winner and a loser? These days, it's not so easy to say." Who is Aaron Rodgers? He is the player who is replacing a legend -- Brett Favre. His hero? Joe Montana.
