    That's a ton of cabbage for a guy who has only played 7 games.

    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers made a long-term commitment to quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Friday, signing the first-year starter to a contract extension through 2014.

    The team announced the extension after practice Friday afternoon, when Rodgers signed the paperwork. The deal is worth $65 million over six years, with $20 million guaranteed, a league source told NFL Network's Adam Schefter.

    The Green Bay Packers have lost their collective minds.

    Fans are going crazy up here.. Or I should say half of them are. First the trading of Favre. Then the unexpected dumping of KGB. Now these two fat new contracts for Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Grant. This fan base is split like I've never seen a fan base split. It's so bad up here you could even find more Jet Favre jerseys around at local stores then you could regular Packer player ones.

    My grandmother, a LIFE long Packer fan. So much so I've envisioned strangling her on many occasions throughout my life :) a Jets fan. Just like that. And it's like this EVERY OTHER PERSON! Packer fans disappearing in blinks of eyes. I can't even get a rile out of them when the Pack loses, they just don't care. But most of the time, just happy they're losing. Want points to be proven. Taking away my fun!

    Half the people who support this madness, enthralled with the recent Rodgers signing, the other half LAUGHS in their faces. Ready to string McCarthy and Thompson up like you wouldn't believe.

    And these fans who are laughing, ain't going to games either. They're selling their tickets left and right. Ticket prices to go to a Packer game have literally plummeted. As I was watching the prices before the Cowboy game, only the opening game and the Cowboy game hadn't lost major value, but all the other games were losing like $200-$300 on average per ticket. And even the Cowboy game- I bought mine in the first part of August, and I'll be damed if 1 week before the game there weren't 100's more availble then when I chose and the average price was $100 cheaper then what I paid. I could've sat near the 50 yard line and saved $60 between the two tickets I had, versus 5 yard line tickets.

    Anyway, this collective losing of minds up here, I love it! Couldn't be happier. Rome is burning. Fires getting worse. No end in sight. 100x WORSE THEN COWBOY FANS COULD EVEN IMAGINE! And a signing like this isn't going to help this organization in the long run. If you ask me, throwing money away without a care in the world. If you ask half the former Packer fans, throwing their team away...and throwing it away on purpose.

    I agree, but they've been watching him for years now. I think he's the real deal and am happy for a guy who waited his turn without being a primadonna.

    I'm a little surprised that they gave him this deal after a half a season. You'd think they'd at least have seen what he'd do through out the whole year.
