Now if anyone has ever played the what if draft game with friends then you can get where im going with this. If any of these teams would have looked a bit closer at Rogers, i would be enjoying the fact that Favre retires and the packers would most likely not be the team that came into the 2013 Season. With that said, maybe we would have been a bit different too.My first fan post. Hope it makes sense and maybe something you guys can all enjoy.

Go LIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FYI. I live in the upper state of Michigan and the Packers fans Created my hate... Thats why my hard on for this team is so wood..
