The Packers could have won in San Francisco and they bounced back to demolish the Redskins at home. Aaron Rodgers is playing incredible football right now, completing 55 of 79 (69.6%) for 813 yards (10.3 YPA), 7 touchdowns, and 1 interception (which wasn’t his fault), while leading the Packers to 51 first downs to 9 punts. While the Redskins defense isn’t very good, the 49ers’ defense certainly is and he still shredded them. Once they get healthy defensively, this will be a very scary team.

Coming into this season, there were two areas that topped my list of improvements the Packers HAD to make; Aggressiveness on defense and protecting Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers aided their defense by drafting some players that play fast, tough and aggressive. They let as few players go who they felt just could no longer do so. They reshaped their defensive mentality by bringing...
It always takes a few weeks for the muddy waters of a new NFL season to settle. So far through two weeks of the 2013 regular season — much like we saw in 2011 after the lockout — defenses around the league are struggling to find their sea legs, perhaps due to new rules that […]The post CQBR: Aaron Rodgers reigns supreme in Week 2 by Rourke Douglas Decker appeared first on Water...
Every time the Green Bay Packers send a running back out on the field they ask themselves can this guy stand guard over the franchise?
Having the guy be a 1000-yard rusher is always nice. Being a decent receiver is a plus. But if he can't protect quarterback Aaron Rodgers he might as well not put on his cleats.
This is not breaking news around here but it does speak to the...

There weren’t a lot of obvious game of the week picks for week three. There aren’t many division rivalry games that are likely to mean a lot in the standings at season’s end. And it’s too early to say who is matching up in a game that will have playoff tiebreaker ramifications. So I ended up going with this game because for a couple reasons. First, I think the Bengals and...
