+1 with r1.
Still, it has to be said- off the field, watching a wall of white paint dry has more magnetism then Rodgers.
Although he's scarily smart (except for the astoundingly stupid act of saying Ryan Braun was was "exonerated") he's dull, dull, dull, a bit prickly and thin-skinned.
Just last night, someone who knows alot of people high up in Packers administration gossiped to me that he isn't exactly popular with his teammates.
Which, if you watched the "60 Minutes" segment on him, isn't surprising.
I watched the 60 Minutes interview and cracked up when Matthews and Jennings said they complimemted Rodgers on how he looks to make him feel good. Once I heard that, that is all I needed to know about him.
You can also tell from his commercials jut how dull he is. He has been doing those damn State Farm commercials for years and still sounds like a robot. Rodgers is a dull, stiff, pain in the ass. However, the man is a great quarterback, so all of that is overlooked.
Oh, my favorite qb of all time is Jim Kelly. My fav playing right now is Drew Brees. He is a good qb, smart, laid back, suit came is tight and is the only white qb that has rhythm enough to lead the pregame huddle chants and not look like a fool.
Tom Brady. The man knows how to dress off the field.
"Suit came is tight"
What do you mean, R15? Autocorrect?
How about this. Brees dresses very well.
Russell Wilson. A great dude who happens to be fine.
Michael Vick. Hot bro.
Phillip Rivers, because he turns me on, and I find his temper entertaining. And he's a lot of fun to watch play.
Colt McCoy. Because of his love of jockstraps.
Mark Sanchez, mmmmm.
Tom Brady. Handsome and articulate.
Aaron Rodgers, of course!
Geno Smith is gonna replace Mark Sanchez as the top Jets qb.
ready for some football!
Ely Manning, he gets no respect, media thinks he's a fluke, little talent and a go no where. Yet the guy has two Super Bowl Rings and years to get more. His brother only one and Tom laid down in the playoffs the year Peyton won and he's at the end of his career.
I'm not a member of the media, r32, but, fwiw from this Packers fan, I have deep respect for Eli Manning.
Twice during play-offs he came to Lambeau Field in January and handed the Packers their ass. So much for the Lambeau Field mystique.
OK, the first time he had help from Favre throwing an interception which lost us the game, but still.
He is the only NFL quarterback that I dread during the play-offs.
Cam Newton needs to tighten up. His pass completion rating sucks this year.
Today Tom Brady (4-1) and Drew Brees (5-0) meet for a clash of the beauties.
[quote]Michael Vick. Hot bro.
Cam Newton got it done in Minnesota today! Panthers!
Michael Vick is very hot. Classic goodlooking masculine looks.
Michael Vicks is a despicable human being. Fuck him.
r39, I believe in forgiveness and not holding grudges. Vick repented and asked for forgiveness. I forgive him, the NFL forgave him, legions of fans forgave him, and people who are Christians forgave him. Only bitter people hold on to other peoples' sins and mistakes.
Della, do you live in Green Bay?
Della lives in our hearts.
No, r42. I live about 35 miles west of Lambeau Field.
I am a die hard Dolphin fan and I love some vintage Dan Marino. The man is aging very nicely.
This thread is useless without pictures.
Josh Freeman is cute
Nick Foles, back up QB with the Eagles, set an NFL record last Sunday with 7 touchdowns.
Nick because he played his college ball at the U. Of Arizona. I live in Southern Arizona.
"Nick Foles, back up QB with the Eagles"
"How much more pussy would Nick Foles get if he looked like William Anthony Raber instead of how Nick Foles looks? Check out this picture of the Eagles current backup:
He looks like a lesbian camp director. You’re on the east coast now, Nick. Time to butch-up that look with some chinstrap stubble, a dark Caesar, and maybe a TAPOUT shirt covered in dragon silhouettes and white flames."
Your link is a ruse, it isn't about Nick and you know it.
R55, my linking that is not a ruse at all. In fact, the part I quoted makes quite clear that it is comparing the looks of the guy who videotaped his tenants, William Anthony Raber, to those of Nick Foles. What I liked about that quote was the portion about Nick looking like a "lesbian camp director." It is an apt description.
Michael Vick is hot though
Michael Vick is sexy. Beautiful skin
Cam Newton just beat Tom Brady down in Charlotte. #Panthers #KeepPounding
Eli Manning. Love his guy-next-door look. Also like Matt Barkley (3rd string QB).
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has just set another NFL record.
Late in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Raiders, Manning reached 5,477 passing yards this season, breaking Drew Brees’s single-season NFL record.
Manning is also putting the single-season touchdown record, which he broke last week, out of reach. Manning has four touchdown passes in the first half.
The Broncos lead the Raiders 31-0 and are cruising toward home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.
One football at a time.
That’s how Cam Newton has created indelible memories for dozens of kids at Carolina Panthers games.
The Carolina quarterback started handing footballs to children in October 2011 after the Panthers scored a touchdown. Since then he has given away several dozen in what has become one of the most beloved traditions in team history.
But where did all those footballs go? Newton, for one, never had any idea how deep of an impression the footballs made upon the kids and families that received them.
For the past month, I have been working on reuniting some of the “Cam Football Kids” with the charismatic quarterback. That process culminated Monday, when Newton walked into a locker room at Bank of America Stadium filled with 15 of those rambunctious, happy children and charmed them all over again.
Well, all of them except one. But we’ll get to that.
The children huddled around Newton, telling him stories about sleeping with their footballs and taking them to school. One girl – 12-year-old Hannah Garthright of Charlotte – also had written him a letter.
“You gave me a football and I wanted to say thank you,” she wrote. “I have hearing aids and ADHD, and when I see the Panthers get a touchdown, it makes me think that I can do that too – only a little bit different, because I play basketball. You inspire me by letting me know that I can do anything. P.S. – I like your smile.”
Newton had the kids laughing immediately when they told him about the footballs that sometimes shared their pillows.
“You know what a football is made of?” he asked. “That’s an ol’ dead pig right there. You’re sleeping with a pig!”
But before we hear more from Newton and his holiday huddle with the kids, let’s back up a little. How did this tradition begin?
‘Give it to a little kid’
Newton made an enormous impact in 2011, his rookie year with the Panthers. He threw for more than 400 yards in each of his first two games and was such an effective runner that he would set an NFL record for quarterbacks with 14 rushing touchdowns.
He also came into the league with a ready-made, TV-friendly TD celebration. Newton would pretend he was Clark Kent turning into Superman and mime the gesture in which Kent rips off his dress shirt to reveal the “S” underneath.
But for the first six games of his NFL career, Newton didn’t hand out touchdown balls. The tradition actually started at the suggestion of Mike Shula, then the Panthers’ quarterbacks coach and now the offensive coordinator.
When Newton scored against Washington in a home game Oct. 23, 2011, he still had the ball he scored with in his hand as he began the “Superman” routine. Shula’s voice, as usual, was being piped directly into Newton’s helmet headset – that is a standard NFL routine to allow play calls to get to the quarterback more easily.
Recounted Newton shortly after the game: Shula “says when you celebrate, it’s not a celebration unless you give back. He says, ‘You do all that riffraff, whatever you do, but at the end you give that football to a little kid. You find a little kid.’
“So after I did whatever I did,” Newton continued, “I heard somebody (Shula) in my headset saying, ‘Give it to a little kid! Give it to a little kid!’ I looked and there was this kid just gleaming from ear to ear, so I gave it to him.”
Shula politely declined to be interviewed for this article. “That’s all Cam,” the coach said of the giveaways. “He has made that tradition his own.”
The first handoff went to 10-year-old Law Waddill of Raleigh. His reaction in the immediate aftermath would turn out to be typical of many of the “Cam Football Kids.”
“I was shaking and sweating,” Law said. “There were tears in my eyes. It was really weird. Here was this Heisman Trophy winner, giving me a ball that he scored with.”
Law and his 10-year-old cousin Nathan Guptill – who lives in Charlotte and was right behind Law when Newton handed up the ball – decided to share custody. They both came to the photo shoot Monday with Newton.
“So you were the first ones, huh?” Newton said, smiling, at Law and Nathan.
“If I had a wish list … ”
Since Newton began the tradition, the Panthers have scored slightly more than 100 touchdowns. No one keeps count, but I would estimate Newton has given away the ball on close to half of those.
The way it works: Newton always gives it away when he scores himself (he started off only doing the giveaway on his own touchdowns). And now he often gives it away, too, when another Carolina offensive player scores.
When he’s choosing a child, it takes about five seconds. He runs around, looks for big smiles and tries to spread the footballs into different corners of the stadium. Newton frequently picks a child in a Cam Newton jersey, but not always. The lucky kids usually turn out to be between ages 7 and 14.
Occasionally, other offensive players have chosen to either keep their own touchdown balls or give them away themselves, so not all home-game TD balls end up in the stands courtesy of the quarterback. Newton also doesn’t give the balls away on defensive touchdowns, so the “Sunday giveaway,” as he and other Panthers call it, is hit or miss.
On road games, sometimes Newton finds a friendly kid in a Panthers jersey nearby – Hannah Garthright got hers in Miami this year on a mother-daughter trip to the Panthers-Dolphins game. Sometimes he doesn’t.
The NFL doesn’t fine Newton for giving footballs away, according to a league spokesman. But all NFL players are fined $5,250 when they throw or punt a ball into the stands because of issues of crowd safety. That’s what Newton did on the winning touchdown in the New England game Nov. 18, when he excitedly threw the ball 16 rows into the stands, above where the T-shirt guns often reach. That was a $5,250 throw.
Normally, though, Newton tamps down his excitement enough to hand the ball to someone like Charlotte’s Jack Schoening, 11.
Schoening was out of town and couldn’t come to our photo shoot, but he got a ball from Newton on Oct. 20, 2013, four days before his birthday.
“If I had a wish list for things I wanted to accomplish in my life,” Jack said, “getting a ball from Cam would have been No. 1 on the list. It’s something I will remember for the rest of my life.”

"Who is your favorite NFL quarterback?"
The one whose penis I sucked.
Damn! After reading R69's post I'm REALLY upset that Cam couldn't beat the 9ers.
He had a rough start with the Panthers and reporters were writing that he wasn't that great a QB; not NFL caliber.
12-4 record in '13 and lossing to the 49ers? Not too shabby, Cam. Not too shabby.
[quote] Matt Barkley (3rd string QB).
Barkley is good looking, but he is a major homophobe.
Joe Montana - as if there's any competition.
Rivers is pretty sexy, though.
Vince Ferragamo should be mentioned, even if all the ducklings have no idea...
The Mannings- nothing like the Southern prep boy look
And yes together!
[quote]Barkley is good looking, but he is a major homophobe.
Where did you hear this?
Cam Newton is all that, so is Russell Wilson.
Matt Barkley is not good looking. He and wife are a complete mismatch. I love these beautiful women with really unattractive men. Had these men not be who they were, these men would be on craigslist looking for dates.
No QB since has ever been as sexy as Joe Namath in his prime.
R79 During Barkley's USC days, he tweeted something about being against gay marriage in regards to Prop 8 being overturned.
who in the heck thinks Matt Barkley is goodlooking? talk about AWG.
Only won quarterback won the Super Bowl in 2014. Russell Wilson.
Will Manziel succeed in the NFL?
I hope not, R86. I don't like when people are overhyped.
