Did you hear? It’s 12-12-12. Of course you did because your annoying high school friends on Facebook won’t shut up about this historic day.
Have you seen a post today about famous athletes who wore #12? Of course you have because that’s the easy way out on the Internet. Take a subject, give 40% effort and pump out a post that features Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck. Maybe Joe Namath, too.
We gave 100% effort and unearthed some names from the past that might not have been all-time #12 greats, but still deserve your attention on this historic day.
Make your own lists. Worst QBs to ever wear #12 – Gus Frerotte, Chris Chandler, Bob Griese?
There’s even a Fat Lever (NBA player) mention in this gallery. Like I said, we gave 100% effort.

It took 44 minutes of blabbering on the Tuesdays With Aaron Rodgers radio show on ESPN Radio Wisconsin before host Jason Wilde finally asked the Packers QB about the purported black thong from Sunday’s Lions game.
And then Rodgers ruined all the fun by telling Wilde that thing you see above isn’t a black thong.
Wilde asked, “Why were you wearing a thong?”
“I was wearing...
Last fall, Stevens Point, Wis., Packers fan Jennifer Brilowski started a push on her Facebook page to turn Dec. 12, 2012 into Aaron Rodgers Day. More than a year later, she'll get the chance Wednesday to celebrate what has turned into an officially recognized event by the State of Wisconsin with Packers fans everywhere and Rodgers himself.
Only Rodgers doesn't expect much...
Maybe whenever Tom Brady does this he’s letting the defense know that he’s smarter than them.
Few athletes have the patience and desire to prepare themselves for battle after battle on the same level as Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Every week presents a new challenge whether it’s playing in the frigid cold of Green Bay, the intense heat of Miami, the incredibly loud environment...
Today truly is Tom Brady day.

Evidently Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has his fantasy owners as a tipping point. After his fourth straight mediocre performance, there are many fantasy owners making alternative plans for Week 15 as the Packers face the Chicago Bears in the Windy City. Is that a wise move?
Since the Packers’ Week 10 Bye, Rodgers is averaging 228.5 passing yards per game. He...
With Tom Brady's four touchdown passes in the Patriots 42-14 dismantling of the Houston Texans Monday night, let the debate begin. Tom Brady is the NFL's Most Valuable Player for the 2012 season.I know of one voter who might disagree, (Adam Schein endorses Andrew Luck for MVP), but how could you even consider Luck, after watching Brady go to work Monday night on J.J.

Tom Brady talks about being the last standing of the old Pats, his new daughter, the Texans and more!
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's a weekly tradition before every Packers game, with the three team captains lining up on the field for an official photograph.
Well, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has his own tradition with the team-captain pictures: He photobombs every single one of them.
When Rodgers first began showing up in the back of those pictures -- he was still Brett Favre's backup...
Construction work at Lambeau Field sparked a minor fire that caused about $5,000 in damage to the Green Bay Packers stadium.
WLUK-TV reports workers were cutting a beam near the fourth floor Wednesday afternoon when sparks landed inside a wall, igniting foam insulation.
The area was evacuated. No one was hurt.
Green Bay Fire Lt. Nick Craig says the fire was small but in an unwieldy...
Tom Brady should be Foles model
The NFL is all about throwing the football and Eagles head coach, Andy Reid is their leading ambassador. With this being a quarterback-driven league, a team needs one who is a smart, decisive, leader of men. The Eagles may have one in Nick Foles, but after watching Monday night’s Patriots blowout over the Texans, Tom Brady is who Foles should aspire...

Statistics show that Green Bay is one of the NFL's most injury-plagued teams in 2012.
Aaron Rodgers needs no reminder.
Rodgers himself hasn't missed a start, an impressive feat considering the star quarterback has been sacked an NFL-high 42 times in 13 games. But it's the absence of those around him that has taken just as heavy a toll.
Six offensive starters or their...
The Patriots quickly and emphatically let everyone know who the class of the AFC still is. The Texans took a shot from the Patriots and walked out stumbling to a 42-14 defeat, and the game wasn’t even that close. The Texans may be tied for the best record in the NFL, but the league was served notice over who is still the team to beat.
The Patriots didn’t waste any time in...
You can sense that things are shifting atop the power grid of NFL teams, with the familiar juggernauts like the Patriots and Packers and 49ers picking up steam, while early heavy hitters like Houston and Atlanta begin to slip up.
1. San Francisco 49ers (9-3-1, 3rd last week): If not for the Rams this wouldn't be a debate.
2. New England Patriots (10-3, 4th last week): Tom...
