Don't forget they almost got him in Free Agency but they didn't want to pay him or something. Then he went to the Saints. I remember that whole thing being pretty shady.
So in all actuality they missed on Brees twice. lol
20+ teams missed on Rodgers but in the same token, would he really have been this good had he not sat behind a HOF QB and learned the game for a couple years. Imagine San Fran takes him and throws him into the fire ala Alex Smith. I'm not sure we are looking at the same guy....
and it wasn't that people just skipped out on Rodgers too - after the Dolphins all of those teams had established QBs or just invested first rounders on QBs in the previous couple of years
