Coach [Jeff Tedford] texted me last night. We talk usually weekly or every other week. I like to say he's a big reason I'm here today and deserves a lot of credit for the success that I've had in this league. He prepared me to be in this position, I think, and really taught me a lot about leadership and honed my fundamentals, gave me an opportunity. So I owe him a lot of credit.
— Aaron Rodgers pre-Super Bowl press conference credits Jeff Tedford for his development as a quarterback and a leader. Video here. That influence can be seen in his low interception percentage (lowest ever at Cal, lowest ever in NFL history), high completion rate, and highest pro career passer rating. Plus the wins. All the wins. Can we finally dismiss the conventional line of thinking that Rodgers needed to overcome Tedford's teachings to be a great NFL quarterback?
