Rodgers Yet Again the Voice of Reason

Aaron Rodgers is quite possibly the best quarterback in football.

The dude has proves it, time and time again.

The former CalBear simply has the know-how and the skillset to get things done in crunch time.

It must be in his DNA code.

However, for as smart and talented as Rodgers is on the field, his off-the-field acumen is ten times as good.

Take, for example, the words of wisdom he dropped on nervous Packer fans last season. The team had started out with a pedestrian record of 1-2, and Packer fans -- who had grown accustomed to a lifestyle of NFL excellence -- were getting anxious.

Rodgers was drawing criticism for spending too much time filming his TV commercials and having a celebrity girlfriend. In response, he told the fan base to just R-E-L-A-X.

Dude's words seemed to revitalize the Pack's on-field performance, and Green Bay would go on to finish 12-4 and win the NFC North.

However, Rodgers' greatest words of wisdom came this past Sunday after the Green Bay’s clunker against the Detroit Lions.

And before you ask, no, it wasn’t about his team’s horrid performance against the worst team in football.

Prior to the start of games this week, the NFL decided to hold a moment of silence for the victims of the Paris attacks.

One such moment was held at Lambeau Field. However, not everybody in attendance was silent. One fan found it necessary to take advantage of the quiet to yell a religious insult.

Rodgers looked up and voiced his displeasure at the fan's actions, saying that words such as the one’s the fan used are the reason that such actions occur in the world.

Kudos to Rodgers.

The NFL has dropped the ball several times on tough issues, but individual players have assumed the task of stepping up for what's right.

Rodgers is well known for his on field play, but his words off the field have shown the real value he adds to the world.
