Rodgers: Packers must get and stay healthy

GREEN BAY, Wis. With less than four weeks to go before the Green Bay Packers begin the regular season, quarterback Aaron Rodgers talked with the media about adding Cedric Benson, having so many injuries on the team, getting the offensive line healthy and more. Five question-and-answer highlights: 1. What are your goals for the preseason? RODGERS: I just don't want to get...

Weeden: My Mistakes are Fixable

The mistakes I made were so small that they’re easy fixes. I work on them every day after practice now. The one, the fumble, when I was trying to dump it down to Jordan [Cameron], regardless of if it was or fumble or if it wasn’t a fumble, I’ve got to get that ball out quicker just knowing where we were on the field, knowing how good Phil [Dawson] is. That’s three points...

McCarthy preaching ball security after loss

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Preseason or not, NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers' first-team offense has hardly looked like the group that led the NFL in scoring last season.In six drives so far through two games, including the Packers' 35-10 loss Thursday night at home to the Cleveland Browns, Green Bay's starters have produced only seven total points with one interception...

Relax, Please

The Packers fell to 0-2 with an ugly loss to Cleveland on Thursday night. To be sure, the Packers have some issues to work through in the next two weeks, but as Aaron Rodgers was quick to remind afterward, "It's preseason." The "feel" was much better than the score.

Weeden anxious for another crack at the field

BEREA, Ohio Brandon Weeden is anxious to get back on the field after a less than stellar opening performance against the Lions. He was 3-of-9 for 62 yards and turned the ball over twice. His rating was a paltry 19. Its been a quick turnaround, but its been good, Weeden said. Im excited to get back out there and correct the mistakes from last week and just get back out and (play)...

Franklin's challenge: Following up his Vandy debut

James Franklin and his Vanderbilt Commodores now face their biggest challenge yet: Following up on their first season together by winning in their second. Vanderbilt has not won at least six games in consecutive seasons since 1974 and 1975 when the Commodores won seven games in back-to-back years. The Commodores went 6-7 and played in only the program's fifth bowl ever in Franklin...

Cleveland Clobbers Punchless Packers

After an opening touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson, the Browns dominated 35-10. Graham Harrell was mostly miserable and the Packers were lit up by Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy.

VP candidate Paul Ryan praises “Brendan Wheaton.”

I just have to chuckle at this one. I have little to zero interest in politics, and adhere to the age-old saying: “they’re all idiots.” But Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s running partner, Paul Ryan, took it a step further during a recent campaign stop in Ohio. He praised the Cleveland Browns, and even went on to praise current rookie quarterback, Brendan Wheaton. Pretty...

Good signs for Browns in pre-season win

Theres no sense sugarcoating that Cleveland Browns performance in preseason Game 2 Thursday night. That was a good effort. Never mind that Green Bay treated the game like a scrimmage and the Browns starters played more than the Packers its been a long time since so much positive came out of a game. The Packers may have seemed woefully disinterested, but it was a game the Browns...
