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, via Packers.com. “Everybody in this locker room looks up to him as a leader. Everybody in this locker room believes in him.” I agree with Jones, Rodgers has nothing but the respect of his teammates.  I don’t understand how an agent question him as a leader.

Where, Oh Where Did Packers' Aaron Rodgers Go?

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...
