    Paul Srubas of the Green Bay Press Gazette reports Minnesota Avenue on Green Bay's northeast side was renamed Aaron Rodgers Drive on Thursday morning to honor the Packers quarterback. It was one of the city's cheerleading gestures for Sunday's game between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings, the new team for former Packers quarterback Brett Favre "No more Minnesota Avenue," Mayor Jim Schmitt declared as he and Department of Public Works employee John Krock replaced the street sign at the corner of East Shore Drive and Aaron Rodgers Drive, near the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary.

    I'm sorry, but even as a Packer fan, naming a street after him seems a little premature.

    Seems like it was more getting back at Favre than giving props to Rodgers.
