Brett Swain wears the underdog crown very well. A seventh round pick in 2008, Swain spent the entire season on the practice squad.
Matt Flynn has a BCS Championship MVP trophy sitting on his shelf. So while there is little doubt he can perform in a big spot, the question on Flynn has always been, does he have enough talent to be an NFL quarterback?
Be honest: Most of you skip straight to the grades portion of these player reviews and don’t bother reading the rest of it. I used to write for a video game review website so I know how you people operate. You skip straight to the final score/grade, then head to the comments section and argue with the author about why he was a half-grade off in his final evaluation. Many of you probably scrolled down and saw that I gave Aaron Rodgers an “A” instead of an “A+” for an overall grade and you’re mad.
Before the start of the 2010 season, one would have thought Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver would have grown sick and tired of playoff heartbreak.
Two years after a nauseating loss at home to the New York Giants in the NFC Championship, Driver had to feel like vomiting after Aaron Rodgers sack and subsequent fumble was returned for a touchdown in overtime of last season’s NFC Wild Card against the Arizona Cardinals.
