Packers Talk Radio Network:
For a team which is perennially in the discussion as a Super Bowl contender, the Packers apparently do so with two “superstars” and a number of role players.
At least that is what the NFL Network would have you believe.
As the countdown of the Top 100 players for 2013 reaches its apex, there has been only one Packer represented in the first 90 players of this (semi worthless) countdown of the best players in the NFL.
That player is Clay Matthews. And for good reason.
A one man wrecking crew, Matthews has established himself as one of the premiere pass rushers in the game. Entering his fifth season with the Packers, Matthews has already accumulated 42.5 sacks during his career.
Relentless, intense, and emotional. These are just a few words which describe Matthews play.
The NFL Network agreed that Matthews’ play is elite, which is why it placed him at Number 31 on their list of Top 100 players for 2013, and for that we will make this week’s edition of Midweek Movie a Clay Matthews double feature.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the sounds from the field from the Claymaker himself from the playoff game against the 49ers this past January (just try to ignore the final score):
When you are done watching the 49ers highlights, please enjoy a second edition of Clay Matthews mic’d up on the field, this time against the Jaguars at Lambeau Field. (Sorry, no preview available. Just click the link.)
GO PACK GO!

BEST OF MAXIM
The Green Bay Packers are in a wonderful place in the cycle of sports: they get to be in “win now” mode for the foreseeable future, and can expect to be reaching for the brass ring every year as long as they have Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy at the helm.That doesn’t mean they don’t have questions to answer in training camp, though. These are the things the Packers will...

Almost five years ago, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time was traded to the New York Jets. The divorce between Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers has been well documented. The Packers had Aaron Rodgers as the future of the franchise and were tired of Favre’s constant indecision about retirement. In 2007, Favre and the Packers had...
AND A-RODG AIN'T HAPPY
The sports world was all over the news out of Massachusetts yesterday regarding Aaron Hernandez. The Patriots TE was finally arrested early in the morning, then he was released by the team less than an hour later. Finally, in the afternoon it was revealed Hernandez would be charged with murder and not merely obstruction of justice as had been previously conjectured. NFL stars...
With the 10th pick in the 7th round of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Grand Valley State wide receiver Charles Johnson. Johnson, the 216th overall draft pick and the 24th receiver selected in this year’s draft, has already been quite the journeyman before he was drafted by Green Bay. Johnson, who played collegiate football at three different schools and three...
The Packers' passing game already lacks proven firepower, making Jermichael Finley a key piece to puzzle rather than an expendable piece to help the Patriots.
Since the 2006 NFL Draft, wide receiver Greg Jennings has been a prolific part of the Green Bay Packers offense. He was one of Brett Favre’s and Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets, including catching Favre’s record breaking career touchdown pass. Now, Jennings has left the Packers for the team he caught that record touchdown against, the [...]

And I don't mean a "Killer of Vikings fans hopes and dreams" or anything like that, I mean a real life, shooty-shooty, stabby-stabby (not like THAT kind of stabbing though ... I don't think), kill kill kill, kind of murderer.
At least according to Jeremy Schaap and ESPN.
ESPN said - ON AIR - in a recent interview, that Aaron Rodgers was likely tied...
Live TV is harder than it looks.
It is even harder when you dealing with a serious issue like a NFL player being charged with 1st degree murder, so cut Jeremy Schapp a little slack here in this video provided by The Big Lead.
Aaron Rodgers was not amused.
Not funny ESPN

With no OTA’s, or free agents, or NFL draft, or training camp, Packers junkies are suffering heavy withdrawal this week. Join Kelly, Colleen and Richard as they discuss cake tasting, Desmond Bishop, Kevin Greene as a defensive coordinator, the Packers Sweep, horse-face John Elway, Finley’s baby mama drama < dumping a dead corpse, which Packer receiver will get 1,000 yards...
Some of the biggest news in the NFL in a long time came Wednesday that former New England tight end Aaron Hernandez was being charged with first degree murder eleven. While coving Hernandez’s arraignment, ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap, made a crucial error and confused Hernandez with current Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. “Certainly based on what we heard there is a...
Aaron Hernandez and Aaron Rodgers have very few things in common, but obviously their first name is one of them. Given the fact that Hernandez has been arrested and charged with murder, you can understand why Rodgers would not want to be associated with him an any way. Unfortunately, a slip of the tongue from [...]
Former Green Bay Packers-turned-Minnesota Vikings linebacker Desmond Bishop is excited to be facing Aaron Rodgers twice a year.
