Over the weekend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was poked in the eye by Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins but ended up being okay.
During his weekly radio show on ESPN 540 Wisconsin, Rodgers decided to joke about the incident and talk his love of dressing up as a pirate:
You know, I have always
enjoyed dressing up like a pirate, wearing an eye patch I think would
be awesome and would add some legitimacy to my toughness," Rodgers joked
Tuesday during his weekly radio show on 540 ESPN and ESPNWisconsin.com.
"It would have been sweet to go back in the game with an eye patch and

With the Green Bay Packers victory over the New Orleans Saints 28-27, one might ask if the Packers are a team with a scope on all opponents like a well trained sniper. In his Week 4 contest with the Saints and their own tactical specialist in Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers looked like the MVP of last year while only making one mistake in Green Bay’s 28-27 win.

The Packers will get accustomed to traveling south with their next three games on the road, all in the central part of the country. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, however, sees the needle on the compass pointing the opposite way with regard to Green Bay's previously sputtering offense. "Heading in the right direction, definitely," Rodgers said Wednesday. Whether Pro...
There's nothing more to say about this defense than to sum it up by saying they suck. I hate to be that crass or simplistic, but right now they really don't do anything well. The run defense is porous, the pass defense is shaky at best when they are 100% healthy (which hasn't been often) and the pass rush takes bad to a whole new level. I have a theory that this defense...
