The First Cover of the 2013 Season

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on one of Sports Illustrated's regional covers, his first cover appearance of the season.

How nice for Bellin Health that they're getting just a little payoff from their sponsorship agreement.

This is SI's fantasy preview, and they list Rodgers as their top-rated fantasy quarterback.

He's also well-covered inside the magazine, in an article entitled "Aaron Rodgers: The Voice of Wisconsin". Money quote:
Rodgers grew up in California and wasn't initially happy when he was chosen by Green Bay with the 24th pick in the 2005 draft since he expected to be drafted higher and Brett Favre was still the starter (and a legend) in Green Bay. And yet Rodgers now says, "I’m a Wisconsin guy. I’m here nine months out of the year. This is home for me." He adds, "People enjoy being able to see you at the Piggly Wiggly and say hello."
