Green Bay Packers
San Francisco 49ers
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer The San Francisco 49ers showed all the same poise and big playmaking ability - not to mention dominant defense against NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers - in a season-opening statement victory at Green Bay as they did in coming so close to a Super Bowl last season.
Who said the reigning NFC West champions couldn't do it all again even with a far more daunting schedule?
''It's a big win,'' three-time Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore said Monday, a day after rushing for a key 23-yard touchdown with 8:41 left at Lambeau Field. ''We've got to keep going, keep working.''
The Niners snapped an eight-game losing streak in Green Bay dating to 1990. More than that, they showed they are a legitimate NFC contender for the second straight season.
From the day the schedule came out, many looked at San Francisco's games and saw the list as much more challenging than a year ago - starting in ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Another day, another player unhappy with the replacement officials for the way they called a game over the weekend. While I’m sure many of you have already grown tired of hearing the whining, Aaron Rodgers at least kept it unique with his complaints during an interview Jason Wilde on ESPN Radio in Wisconsin. Unlike some players who have blamed the officials for their lack of production...
By all indications, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appears to be an affable fellow with a pretty good sense of humor. In fact, I imagine much like Mitt Romey, Rodgers lives for laughter, but that’s another story altogether. During his Tuesday appearance with Jason Wilde on ESPN Radio Milwaukee, Rodgers discussed a multitude of topics, including Green [...]

For all the times that we’ve talked about how likable Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers seems, this sure hasn’t been his best week. It started off playfully enough, with Rodgers and Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men making a bet that if the Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend, Rodgers would have to wear an Alex Smith jersey. The Packers, of course, lost...
TMZ is reporting that Aaron Rodgers is welching on his bet he made with Boyz II Men. Here is what TMZ reported.
Aaron Rodgers doesn’t seem to understand the way bets work — because even though he LOST a wager to Boyz II Men … he’s now trying to weasel his way out of paying up … by throwing TMZ under the bus.

The Green Bay Packers coming from a division that have two of the top rushers of all-time with Walter Payton and Barry Sanders would give a hint to Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy that they need to run the ball more with Cedric Benson, but apparently they didn’t get the hint passing 76% of the [...]

Chicago Bears (1-0) at Green Bay Packers (0-1)
This is the game of the week right here. I’ve been high on the Bears all offseason, naming them as one of my underrated teams. In fact, I thought they were the 2nd best team in the NFC, but couldn’t have them winning the division because the Packers were just so good. Well, the Packers aren’t looking so good anymore. Aaron Rodgers...
