Football: Aaron Rodgers delivers on promise

Former Cal star Aaron Rodgers promised he’d fix what was wrong.

How’s this for delivering on his vow: Rodgers set a career high and tied the Green Bay franchise record with six touchdown passes as the Packers routed the previously unbeaten Houston Texans 42-24.

Rodgers, unhappy with the way he’d played as the Packers won just two of their first five games, was 24 for 37 for 337 yards.

“We’re all just tired of answering questions about what happened to the Packers, what happened to me,” Rodgers told NBC’s Michele Tafoya.

The Texans had allowed just six TD passes all season before Rodgers lit them up.

    Rodgers shredded Houston.

    I only saw Rodgers on campus once. And I will never forget it. It was when we played Chico State in basketball and he sat front row with a red Chico State shirt.

    Something about him has always made me feel like he’s ashamed to have gone to Cal. Butte CC and his Chico roots always seem more prominent.

    Aaron Rogers has always marched to the beat of his own drum. He’s definitely not ashamed of Cal, but just because he went there, he’ll never turn his back on his home town allegiance. It’s that stubborn, underdog mentality that makes him such a great competitor.

    I ran into Rodgers right after the Holiday Bowl loss. He actually apologized for the performance. Many have speculated/reported that Rodgers only left early because he expected to be the #1 pick with boyhood favorite the 49ers.

    There is no reason to think he is anything other than closely connected to Cal, and Tedford.
