MVP: QB Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay)
Rodgers was my highest ranked quarterback in my top-200 and in my fantasy projections and the top quarterback usually wins this award as long as his team makes the playoffs. In his last 45 games, including the playoffs, Rodgers has thrown for 114 touchdowns, 20 interceptions, and 12738 yards. Over 16 games, that’s 41 touchdowns, 7 interceptions, and 4529 yards. He’s also rushed for 1395 yards and 18 touchdowns in 5 years. There’s some concern with his offensive line, but he was sacked 51 times last season and still produced.
Defensive Player of the Year: DE JJ Watt (Houston)
I hate picking someone to win the Defensive Player of the Year to back-to-back years since the only one who has ever done it is Lawrence Taylor, and that was in a strike shortened season. However, Watt is coming off arguably the greatest season by a defensive lineman in NFL history, given how many sacks he had from his position, the number of swats he had, and how well he played...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Quarterback has always been the biggest position of need for many NFL teams. However, these 10 teams believe they have found their man. How could they not?
It’s not every day a player is offered $130.75 million over seven years like Aaron Rodgers was this last offseason. His $130 million make him the highest paid quarterback in the NFL based on the total amount of the full contract.... Read more

The game was a slug fest. When one team would score the other would answer. When one team made a defensive stop, the other would counter again. For the third time in 12 months, the Packers and 49ers took the field against one another and showed why each could be the NFC representative in the Super Bowl. In the end...

Handing out grades following the Green Bay Packers' 34-28 loss to the San Francisco 49ers:
Passing Offense: A-
Aaron Rodgers apparently didn't need more than the five drives and 46 snaps he got in preseason, as the Packers quarterback performed at a high level in San Francisco. Rodgers completed 21 of 37 passes for 333 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception for...
Green Bay receiver James Jones did not have a catch in the season opener.Fantasy Spin:Jones only saw two targets while Aaron Rodgers looked for Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Jermichael Finley a combined 30 times. Jones had just 784 yards last season but led the NFL with 14 touchdown receptions.
Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers), Devin Hester (Chicago Bears), Arian Foster (Houston Texans), Marshawn Lynch (Seattle Seahawks) and Patrick Willis (San Francisco 49ers) have partnered with Target to create exclusive men’s and women’s t-shirts.

When Aaron Rodgers called out Brewers former MVP Ryan Braun in July for lying to Rodgers about PED use Rodgers said it hadn’t been determined whether their restaurant partnership will continue. It looks like a decision has been made and it’s not a good one for Braun. From a joint statement released by SURG Restaurant Group:
Restaurant group co-owner Michael Polaski said he...
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews’ late hit against Colin Kapernick was a “cheap shot” on his quaterback. “All in all, there were a lot of things going on in
Green Bay wideout Randall Cobb was targeted 12 times and had seven receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown.Fantasy Spin:At 5-foot-10 and 192 pounds Cobb doesn't look like a prototypical receiver, but as Aaron Rodgers' expected top target he is a fantasy stud.
Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson's knee looked pretty healthy Sunday against the 49ers.Fantasy Spin:Nelson had knee surgery in early August and missed most of training camp, but he had 130 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions Sunday. As one of Aaron Rodgers' top-two targets, Nelson will have a huge season if he stays on the field.
In case there were any doubts before I think it is safe to say now that the Aaron Rodgers/ Ryan Braun bromance is over.
In case you have been away from a computer for the last few months, Green Bay Packers quarterback and Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun were buddies--that is until Braun lied to Rodgers about taking PEDs.
If it was just the personal lie the relationship...
The Green Bay Packers found a way to keep Colin Kaepernick in the pocket and stop all those read-options runs that embarrassed them in the playoffs.
They just had no answer for his arm.
Or his newest receiver.
Kaepernick threw for a career-high 412 yards and three touchdowns to outduel Aaron Rodgers, and the San Francisco 49ers held off the Packers 34-28 on Sunday in the season...
We have some incredible facts to put into context the challenge facing the unlikely offensive tackle duo of David Bakhtiari and Don Barclay. They'll be put to the test against the Niners' elite defense. "We’ve got to win a lot of those battles," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said.
