E:60 on the Packers' Aaron Rodgers
By Kevin Seifert
Many of you have been asking about the recent E:60 profile of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, which was televised earlier this month. It's now available online and embedded in the bottom of this post.
Jeremy Schaap gives us Rodgers' definitive life story, including some details about his childhood that at least I didn't know. "Llama farm" is all I'll say about that.
My favorite part of the piece came near the end. Schaap spoke with Rodgers' mother, Darla, who said that her son's professional goals changed after winning Super Bowl XLV. She quoted Aaron Rodgers as saying to her, "My goals have changed, mom. I don't really desire anymore to be the best quarterback in the NFL. Because I want to be remembered as one of the best men that ever played quarterback in the NFL."
