Found October 30, 2012 on Football Nation:
The quarterback position is an important one because they are seen as the team's leadership on the field, and when teams fail to win the quarterback is usually the first position that is blamed and changed. Therefore it is important for a starting quarterback to always do their best and win football games.Week 8 was an interesting one in the NFL for the quarterback position because some high profile quarterbacks like Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers failed to play well, while poorer quarterbacks like Blaine Gabbert had a great game.In this article I will examine each quarterback match-up from Week 8, and let you know who won and who lost each.

Green Bay Packers do just enough to earn win against Jacksonville Jaguars

In honor of Halloween the Green Bay Packers decided to do their own rendition of The Walking Dead. Thanks in part to all of Green Bay’s injury’s, the Packers offense looked more like a shambling horde of zombies instead of the well-tuned machine it has been the last couple of weeks.  But the Packers did just enough to get the win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Aaron Rodgers...

Rodgers: I'm not a fan of NFL's tuck rule

GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers didn't like the NFL's tuck rule when it first came into play 10 years ago. And after not getting the benefit of that call Sunday, the Packers' quarterback isn't about to change his mind on it. With one minute to go in the first half of Green Bay's 24-15 win over Jacksonville, Rodgers was sacked by Jaguars rookie defensive end Andre...

Rodgers: WR Jones making most of opportunities

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a chance to lead his team to a fourth consecutive win if they can knock off the visiting Arizona Cardinals this Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Jaguars come up short on road vs. Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers went back to an old favorite, connecting with Donald Driver on a 4-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal Green Bay's 24-15 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Rodgers threw two touchdowns, passing Bart Starr for second place on Green Bay's all-time list, and Dezman Moses gave the Packers their first touchdown on a...

Packers on winning end of 'nasty' game

GREEN BAY, Wis. It wasn't just an ugly win for the Packers. No, this was something far more concerning for a team with seemingly legitimate Super Bowl aspirations. Green Bay's 24-15 victory over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars in front of 70,000 cheeseheads at Lambeau Field was an unimpressive performance against an inferior opponent. And the Packers knew it, too. "...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades @ Broncos

What we saw Sunday was quite possibly the worst offensive performance of the Drew Brees era. The unit looked out of synch all game and hurt themselves by not making plays that were there to make. Protection was actually decent, as they did a good job limiting Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil for the most part. But every time a play was there to be made, a critical drop, a poor play...

The Philadelphia Eagles have a quarterback and a coach both likely playing for their jobs. The New Orleans Saints are off to their worst start in the Drew Brees era following the best regular season in franchise history. Arguably the league's two most desperate teams entering Week 9, either the Eagles or the Saints will be in even worse shape after Monday night's game in...
