According to TMZ.com, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has made a bet with Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men, who’s a big 49ers fan. The bet is that if the Packers lose, Rodgers will have to wear an Alex Smith jersey. If the 49ers lose, Morris will be forced to wear an Aaron Rodgers jersey.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has agreed to a deal that could land him in a 49ers jersey on Monday morning … and it’s all thanks to the guys from Boyz II Men.
TMZ has learned … Rodgers and the R&B legends are actually friends … and recently, Aaron asked the guys if they would sing the National Anthem at the season opener at Lambeau Field on Sunday.
But before the guys would agree to sing, Nathan Morris (the guy with the deep voice) had one MAJOR demand.
Turns out, Morris is a bigtime 49ers fan … and proposed a friendly bet to the QB — if SF wins, Rodgers MUST WEAR an Alex Smith 49ers jersey for the remainder of the week.
If GB wins, Morris has agreed to wear a Rodgers jersey.
This should be a very good game, but I have a feeling the Packers’ offense will be too much for the 49ers defense. Morris better hope that their defense steps up and is able to slow down the Packers’ high powered passing attack.
BEST OF MAXIM
Aaron Rodgers must have really liked the Packers' chances on Sunday. The Green Bay Packers quarterback liked his team's chances so much, in fact, that he was willing to lay his dignity -- and not to mention his team pride -- on the line for a bet with one very popular musical group from the '90s. NFL.com points out that the quarterback supposedly had a bet with everyone...
Alex Smith played well enough in 2011 to bring the 49ers to the NFC Championship game, but he received little credit along the way. In a league where throwing for over 4,000 yards and 30 touchdown passes has become the standard, Smith put together a modest stat line of 3,144 yards and 17 touchdowns. He threw only five interceptions all year, which has resulted in his being labeled...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- To borrow a Buddhist concept, Aaron Rodgers has achieved NFL enlightenment.He is the league's reigning Most Valuable Player. He possesses complete understanding of opposing defensive schemes. His knowledge of Green Bay's own West Coast offense is so comprehensive that it has allowed head coach Mike McCarthy to add even more concepts into an already complex...
GREEN BAY, Wis. – On a normal day David Akers tying an NFL record on a 63-yard field goal would have been the lead story from a regular season game.
But when his team the San Francisco 49ers serves up a very confident win over the NFC’s team to beat, his accomplishment becomes one piece of a very large pie.
From the first tick off the game clock, Green Bay was snuffed out in...
Aaron Rodgers is coming off arguably the best quarterbacking season in NFL history, but will the 49ers give him time to find his prolific targets? Packer Report's Bill Huber and Niners Digest's Craig Massei have been breaking down this game better than anyone.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Jay Cutler the names could cause even the best of defensive backs to suffer a bit of anxiety.For the Minnesota Vikings' young secondary, where only veteran Antoine Winfield is over 27 years old, those are the quarterbacks it will see six times this year while playing in the NFC North. Minnesota's relatively young and...
At 3:25 central time the Green Bay Packers will kick off the 2012 NFL season against the San Francisco 49ers.
Some things to watch after the ball is put into play today include; Will the Green Bay Packer offense continue to put points on the board at the same rate they did last year?, Who will Aaron Rodgers throw the first touchdown pass to?, Will the first score be...
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 [...]
The beginning of the NFL season allows hope for fans and teams alike because every team starts off in the same position, 0-0. However, not every team will finish the same and that is where all of the prognosticators get their turn and predict how many wins a team will have and where they will [...]

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Eight months after the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers were on course to meet for a trip to the 2011 NFC championship, the 49ers established themselves as one of the conference's elite teams by holding off a furious comeback for a 30-22 victory on Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field. Trailing 23-7, the Packers seized momentum in the first minute of...
The last time the West coast branch of the Trigg family made it back to Lambeau Field was two years ago. Our second pilgrimage to the cathedral of football began yesterday with a visit to the Lambeau Atrium. We hit Curly's Pub for an early lunch and it turned out to have a special treat on the side. Our 11AM arrival and prime position near the window of the second-story...
A matchup that so many wanted in the NFC Championship fell short thanks to the New York Giants winning their second Super Bowl in the last five seasons.
However, the 49ers defense against the Packers offense is a dream matchup that will be given to the nation to see in the opening weekend.
Patrick Willis, Navarro Bowman and Justin Smith (Aldon Smith All-Rookie) were all on the All...
