Blogger Blitz: The 'JayRod' rivalry
By Kevin Seifert
Way back in 2009, we christened the "JayRod" rivalry to help us track what we figured would be a long and competitive rivalry between two young and ascending quarterbacks in the NFC North.
Since that point, Jay Cutler has led the Chicago Bears to a 32-21 regular-season record, in addition to an appearance in the 2010 NFC Championship Game. Aaron Rodgers, meanwhile, has pushed the Green Bay Packers to a 44-15 mark, along with a Super Bowl championship in 2010. He won the league MVP award in 2011.
In head-to-head matchups, however, the rivalry hasn't been much of a contest. More in this week's Blogger Blitz.
