For a guy who does his best work in the air, Aaron Rodgers is spending way too much time on the ground. The reigning NFL MVP has been sacked 37 times, more than any other quarterback in the league. He's taken more hits in the first 11 games than he did all of last season (36 sacks), and is on pace to topple the career-high 50 sacks he took in 2009. And the Green Bay Packers (7-4) haven't even seen Jared Allen yet. Rodgers says there's plenty of blame to go around for all the sacks. But he and the offense know something has to be done because ''those hits start to add up a little bit.''
