No matter how much film you watch, you never can really get a feel for how good a player is until you see him with your own eyes.

When it comes to Eagles coach Chip Kelly, his opinion of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went to the moon.

"He is an extremely accurate passer," said Kelly of Rodgers, who finished 22 of 36 for 341 yards, three scores and a rating of 120.3. "We knew that was the deal coming in and we didn't do a good enough job getting after him. He was as advertised.

"I think he's playing as good as anybody in this league. You look at some of the balls he throws; extremely accurate, on target. If you blitzed him, he got it out quick. If you didn't, he held it until guys got open. He got it to everybody. Everybody contributed for him, but that all starts with the trigger man, and he put on a show today. He is as good as they get."
