Mr. Rodgers does the Super Bowl right

Fans of the Green Bay Packers would have preferred to see QB and NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers suited up, on the field, and leading the Pack to victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. But, the Giants unfortunately interceded along the way and allowed Rodgers instead time to opine from the NBC pre-game show. And by all accounts, Rodgers did just fine behind the mic.

Bob Wolfley, sports columnist with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, has a great article about Rodgers' TV foray here. The article also recounts comments Rodgers made yesterday during his weekly radio show on WAUK-AM (540), including his view about a new quarterbacks coach (former QB coach Tom Clements has been elevated to offensive coordinator, replacing Joe Philbin), a career in broadcasting after his playing days are done, and more.

The article is worth checking out.
