Away from the football field, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is as dedicated to the fight against cancer as any professional athlete can be. Its the biggest reason that Rodgers was upset with the piece that CBS news magazine "60 Minutes" ran on him two weeks ago, as it chose to leave out his work with the MACC -- Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer -- Fund.
Rodgers is currently sporting a mustache in support of Movember, an annual November event that aims to raise awareness of prostate cancer.
And recently, Rodgers again showed his charitable side when he spent a day hanging out with Maggie, a 10-year-old Packers fan who battled cancer during her infancy.
In the video, Rodgers and Maggie are shown jumping on a trampoline, playing basketball and soccer and even teaming up on the keyboard. Its a series of very nice moments from Rodgers, who has seen his public image questioned somewhat -- really for the first time in his career -- after the fallout from the "60 Minutes" piece.
This video, one that Rodgers will certainly have no problem with the way it was edited, clearly shows that Rodgers is more than just words when it comes to his dedication to the MACC Fund.

Aaron Rodgers is a pretty sensitive guy.
Maybe not quite as sensitive as his interview on “60 Minutes” made him seem, but a caring and compassionate person nonetheless. Rodgers showed off his sensitive side yet again recently, as the Green Bay Packers quarterback teamed up with the MACC — Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer — Fund to help raise awareness for the work...
MELTS DOWN LIKE VELVEETA
Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has made public his concerns about how Aaron Rodgers doesn't appear to be looking his way, saying "me and 12 just ain’t been on."
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It may not seem like it from outside the Packers' locker room, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers insists that his relationship with outspoken tight end Jermichael Finley is actually quite strong at the moment.
Finley has commented numerous times over the past year that there can sometimes be a lack of chemistry between he and the NFL's reigning Most Valuable...
HUG IT OUT
Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley still seems to have chemistry issues with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He recently talked about them.
M.D. Jennings caught the deflected pass, and there was no doubt about this interception.
Then it was simply a matter of how far he could return it.
''The ball was tipped and I was in the right position to make a play on the ball,'' the Green Bay defensive back said. ''I saw a bunch of offensive lineman. I was like `Man, I can't let an offensive lineman...
Randall Cobb led Green Bay in receiving Sunday with 74 yards on nine catches.Fantasy Spin:He hauled in the game-winning touchdown on a 22-yard strike from Aaron Rodgers with a minute and 55 seconds remaining in the game. It was Cobb's sixth touchdown in his last four games. At this point, we'd consider the second-year receiver a must-start.
This Sunday the Lions welcome in the Green Bay Packers to Ford Field as Detroit looks to string some wins together in hopes of making a late season run at the playoffs. However this is certainly a Packers team that has found itself after a 2-3 start to the season. Since then Green Bay has turned in an impressive win in Houston and taken care of business with St. Louis, Jacksonville...
It was a win the Packers needed for many reasons, and they got it. Now at 7-3 with a 2-0 record in the division, Green Bay -- with four more games remaining against the NFC North -- controls its own playoff future throughout the rest of the season. It also sends Detroit (4-6) into a nearly impossible situation of making the postseason, therefore turning it into a three-team race...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Pro Football Writer The Minnesota Vikings must play perhaps their best yet this season to emerge from the last six games with a playoff spot, let alone a winning record.
The defensive line will have a big part in this.
They visit Chicago on Sunday and Green Bay the week after, facing the NFC North co-leaders...
Tried to take a cocky risk going against Peyton Manning and got burned big time. My first loss of the year puts me at 8-1 on the season, which ain’t too shabby.

Sometimes 12-years with a College Football program is too much. In fact in major conference college football it often is.
12-years for Jeff Tedford at Cal was exactly that: Too long.
Tedford was fired Tuesday morning as the Golden Bears limped through a 3-9 season. And yes, the school owes him money. A lot of money. Somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 million for the next three...
