Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
1) Introduction: It was a grind at times for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Things didn’t look quite as easy as they did in 2011. But as injuries mounted and adversity came and went, Rodgers kept the Packers in games and came through in the end more often than not. It wasn’t an MVP season, but it wasn’t far off.
Born: 12/02/1983, in Chico, CA
Rookie Year: 2005
NFL Experience: 8 years
Career Stats and more:
3) Expectations coming into the season: 8,000 yards, 108 touchdowns, 1 interception and a QB rating of 607.3. Seriously, I think some people honestly expected those numbers from Rodgers this season. His 2011 run might have been a once in a lifetime thing. It’s unfair to expect that to happen every season, maybe ever again. Rodgers ended up leading the league in passer rating for the second straight season and made several plays when he had no business making a play. It was...

Burnett offers a lot of promise for a young Packers secondary (Photo from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
In looking at the Pro Football Focus grades for Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett’s 2012 season, something stood out to me. The longest pass that he was charged with this past season was 27 yards. It’s never good to give up long pass plays and a 27 yarder is nothing...
The Packers were one of the teams who met with Te’o early on during this year’s NFL Scouting Combine
On the first day of workouts at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, former Notre Dame standout linebacker Manti Te’o confirmed that the Packers were one of two teams who had met with him early in the day. Te’o said that he had already met with the Texans and the Packers...
1) Introduction: Many expected 2012 to be a rebound season for the Packers defense. The unit was the team’s Achilles heel in 2011 and it cost them a shot at a second straight Super Bowl. Ted Thompson reloaded the team with talent via the 2012 NFL Draft, so it was up to Dom Capers to turn the defense around. Capers was expected to get the unit closer to 2010...

I’m not sure why the Packers would tag Jennings when...
It's still early in the NFL offseason, but the Green Bay Packers' roster has gotten younger in a hurry. During the past month, the team has cleared out its three oldest players with the release of Charles Woodson and the retirements of Donald Driver and Jeff Saturday.
The Packers now have only two players signed for the 2013 season who are over the age of 30: defensive lineman...
For weeks we’ve reported that Greg Jennings would love to play for the Dolphins, and he would be a good fit. Reports have surfaced otherwise to those opinions, and we might have to say not so fast to the thought of Jennings to Miami.
