Aaron Rodgers is great but is he better than…

Alex Smith?   Seriously, am I really asking that question to myself? You bet, and if you don’t start to consider it, you’ll be wishing you did. Let’s get it out-of-the-way, Aaron Rodgers is a Super Bowl Champion, Super Bowl MVP and NFL MVP. Those are well deserved awards and has allowed him to become the best player in football but what made him fall behind Alex Smith in...

Aaron Rodgers in danger of burning out?

Don’t burn out Aaron Rodgers Football is still a team sport. Each player has a role and performs it to the best of his abilities. Inherent in each role, some positions stand out, others not. Some players are showman and others are workhorses. Everyone works for the good of the whole. Maybe years ago, when football was still evolving, the quarterback role wasn’t that important...

Jennings, Starks return to practice for Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. Wide receiver Greg Jennings is on the road to recovery after missing the Packers' win over the Chicago Bears with a groin injury. Tuesday morning, coach Mike McCarthy said he expected Jennings to practice in a limited fashion later in the day. And, as late afternoon rolled around, Jennings was in full pads taking part in Green Bay's practice. Because the...

Green Bay Packers: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#1)

Last week: 4 (+3) Record: 1-1 The Packers came out flat defensively week 1 and lost to the 49ers and fire on defensively and beat the Bears week 2. Both are worthy opponents, but which defensive effort was the real one? I still don’t like their reliance on forcing turnovers, but if they can continue to play at least solid defense, they’ll be as tough to beat as they have been...

Jennings misses practice with groin injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Though Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings practiced in full pads on Tuesday, it did not go well. After having Wednesday off, Jennings, who missed Green Bay's Week 2 win over the Bears with a groin injury, did not participate at all in the team's Thursday practice."Maybe we were a little bit too optimistic," coach Mike McCarthy said of Jennings...

James Jones says Aaron Rodgers is “a natural-born leader”

Earlier today we mentioned that the agent of Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley came out and stated that Aaron Rodgers isn’t a good leader. Packers wide receiver James Jones has the opposite opinion of Rodgers. “He’s a natural-born leader, not just by what he says but how he carries himself, how he plays the game, how he handles certain situations,” Jones said...

Green Bay Packers: Greg Jennings Focusing On Field, Not Contract

Greg Jennings' Injury: Packers WR Suffers Setback

STATS MAN: Green Bay's Clay Matthews Off to Great Start

Despite the fact that Green Bay went 15-1 last season, star LB Clay Matthews had a relatively quiet year statistically.He has certainly turned that around to start 2012.  Two games into this season, Matthews has already recorded as many sacks (6) as he had the entire 2011 season.  Matthews clearly has a shot at the single-season record of 22.5 if he continues to get to the QB at...

Rodgers confident in locker room chemistry

Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks: Three Bold Predictions

Every NFL season is full of surprises.  Team performance can vary wildly from year to year, earning the NFL the nickname "Not For Long" League.The Packers are usually immune to this trend.  They usually have the same coach and GM for a decade or more, which brings team unity and success.  Even in this time of heavy turnover, they have a GM (Ted Thompson) that joined...

Baratz took to Twitter last Friday to call out Cutler for his leadership ability and went on to...

Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap: Chicago Bears - Green Bay Packers

Chicago Bears – 10, Green Bay Packers – 23This game didn’t really go as planned for anyone here, including Aaron Rodgers (213 total yards, 1 TD, 1 INT).  Rodgers ended up with barely over 200 total yards and one touchdown against one interception, for a very pedestrian total.  That makes two weeks where Rodgers numbers have been very low considering where he was taken in...
