Falcons Vs. Packers: Two New Ways To Say 'Aaron Rodgers Is Great'

Fellow Atlanta Falcons fan, you're one of the last people who'll ever need to see stats and data and so forth in order to be convinced of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. If you'd like to work yourself up into a good fret as Sunday night approaches, though, here's a good chance.

Shutdown Corner's Doug Farrar digs into Rodgers' comfort with multiple-receiver sets, finding he's "the only quarterback in the NFL to be in the top five in passer rating no matter the number of receivers." For example, Ben Roethlisberger is at his best with two receivers on the field, Cam Newton excels with three and Josh Freeman is very good with four. But Rodgers is excellent no matter the configuration.

But at least the Falcons have the Dome field advantage! Well, as Packers blog Acme Packing Company notes, Rodgers is really good indoors, too, even though the Packers are a better team outdoors. Again, no surprise to the Falcons fan.
