“I’m going to be honest, I was not surprised. The biggest surprise to me would be that he didn’t do it sooner… .  [M]y last year in Green Bay prior to the first game, I made the remark that this was probably the most talented team that I’ve ever played on.  And of course everyone looked up and was like, ‘This guy’s off his rocker.’  We were very, very young; take me out of the mix and we were by far the youngest team in the league. But I could see the talent pool across the board was outstanding.  Now our season kind of ended up being a reflection of that. We came close, and I think we took a lot of people by surprise, but guys emerged rather quickly. 
 Aaron had a chance … even though the last couple years it’s seemed like he’s almost a rookie, he’s been around awhile. And I’d like to think that he watched, he learned, and then when he got a chance to play, he brought in his ability which is obviously very good or they wouldn’t have drafted him in the first round.  He’s got tremendous talent, he’s very bright and he got a chance to watch and see successful teams do it right. And so he just kind of fell into a good situation. On top of that, he’s a good player.  I don’t think anyone would question now the talent around him is even better than when I was there. So I’m really kind of surprised it took him so long.  Really, the early part of last year season, it hadn’t quite clicked yet and I didn’t know if it would.”
