Aaron does have a huge point when mentions his lack of recruitment due to where he's from. Most small rural towns have some talent that is never scouted only because most don't know how to get the proper exposure or it isn't usually a place where college coaches would go. If he had played high school ball in a bigger town things mightve been a little different but things ended up working out and look where he's at now. True definition of not letting where you're from define who you are or limit what you can become.
I live 25 miles from The U of Illinois. We have and basically have always had a bad FB team. This totally explains why. The guy goes to Cal and almost wins the Heisman and was easily the most talented QB in the 2005 Draft!!
I love Arron . I'm from Wisconsin . And honestly I'm happy UW was interested just cuz it feels good we were right . But I'm happy he didn't come. He may have not turned into what he became with our ground and pound offense . I really wish I could see what woulda happened with him had he played at UW
The two best QB ever IMHO are Brady and Rodgers. Both really talented guys who were fueled by rejection. Rodgers being rejected coming out of high school. Brady being rejected in college and then going into the draft. Both also had baseball as their backup plans and probably could have made it in that sport too if football hadn't worked out for them. Obviously there are some differences in how they play and their physical differences, but also a lot of similarities in their backgrounds.
Reminds me of the old commercial that shows a kid playing a young Jimi Hendrix standing in the middle of the road. On one side of him is a guitar shop and on the other side of him is an according shop. He walks to the guitar store and the words "Whew! That was close" appear on the screen.
I'm a Purdue alum. Freaking idiots for rejecting Aaron Rodgers!!! God, we could've continued the trend of having well-known QB's from our school. Bob Griese, Drew Bees and Aaron Rodgers! What could've been...
How could all of these coaches and administrators be fucking ass hats all at the same time?
How could ALL of them miss, possibly the best player to ever play the game?
It's unfathomable, that not one of them could see it, alarming actually, how many other talents have been rinsed down the Johnny flusher because of these incompetent morons?
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
