NFL Preseason isn’t the most exciting time of year, but it was a treat getting a close look at Aaron Rodgers. It isn’t always worth it going to preseason games. Many times the starters play little, if at all. The teams don’t try hard all of time and they don’t use all of the plays in their playbook. Frankly, these games are a waste of time from a fan and players perspective. But they continue to make the owners a ton of money, since the fans still have to pay full price for a poor product. In fact, season ticket holders are forced to purchase these games if they want their season tickets.
Anyway, I based my decision on whether to photograph the games based on who the visiting team is and whether or not I’ll get a reasonable shot at seeing them in the game. So last weekend, I decided to go see the Steelers vs. Packers. Why? Because the Packers rarely come to Pittsburgh and Aaron was going to play a little in the first quarter. So I photographed the first half, while the starters were playing. I was happy I got a chance to see Aaron. Regardless for how I feel about Green Bay Packers, I respect him as a person and quarterback. Therefore, tonight’s post after a long absence is of #12, THE Aaron Rodgers.
