(WDAY Sports) - As human beings, we like to make sense of things. We like to make judgments, and draw conclusions, but life of course is very seldom black and white, take Sunday in Green Bay for example, that's tonight on Further Review.
Brett Favre outplays Aaron Rodgers and many a Vikings fan says that'll show you Packers. You picked the wrong guy. Not so fast, Rodgers is the right guy for that team, Favre the right guy for this one.
If Favre had been that awful offensive line he might be dead right now. Rodgers is in Favre's neighborhood right now, and he's a lot younger and much more mobile. Long after Favre is gone; Rodgers will be reminding us all that the Packers did the right thing by letting Favre walk.
Wahpeton fans, you might be bumming about having to drive to the dome Saturday, but kudos to the school for moving the playoff game to Fargo. When you've got a back like Ryan Smith, whose game depends on quickness and speed, the last thing you want is for him to be slogging around in the mud. On the dome turf he's going to be a nightmare for Devils Lake.
If you're an NDSU fan, one thing that you should be hoping for is a couple guys on signing day who are being recruited to play; athlete. You see it at other schools, where a team takes a guy just because he can do a lot and they're not sure where to play the kid. This just hasn't happened in the past for the bison and understandably so.
You'd like to project certain people to play certain positions, but it seems to me they've been so focused on bringing guys in at a certain position, that they've lost a focus on bringing in talented kids and finding a spot for them later.
