NFL - Scoop Du Jour

Aaron Rodgers found out how much tougher it is against a quality NFL defense with a multiple scheme than in his second exhibition start.

After a solid performance in his starting debut last week, the Green Bay Packers' new quarterback played the entire first half Saturday night against the San Francisco 49ers and looked much more like a young player finding his way in the Packers' ugly 34-6 loss to 49ers at Candlestick Park.

Rodgers had six possessions before leaving the game at halftime, including a final series with 51 seconds left in the first half, and took a total of 26 snaps. Those possessions provided only three points and included four three-and-outs. He finished his one half of play with a passer rating of 64.1 points (9-for-16 passing for 58 yards) and was fortunate to avoid what would have been a potential interception deep in Packers territory on that final possession of the half when safety Dashon Goldson dropped a throw on which Rodgers had over-led receiver Donald Driver.
