Problem is, they all seem to play for the same teams, which made us think about some of the squads that just can’t get their players’ faces out there enough. Green Bay Packers It’s absolutely impossible to turn on the TV without seeing one of these guys on your screen. You’ve got quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Pizza Hut and State Farm commercials—with a little cameo from defensive tackle B.J. Raji in a couple of them. Greg Jennings has suddenly become the manliest man ever by being named the spokesperson for Old Spice. And Clay Matthews III might be...

Little running back coming up big for Green Bay

DuJuan Harris wasn't much of a car salesman. Didn't sell a single one, in fact, in the week he was working at a Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge dealership in Jacksonville, Fla. ''I came close a few times,'' he said. ''I don't want to say I was nervous, but people would ask me about the cars and I didn't know much about it. I was just like, `Man, I'...

Packers must protect Rodgers to beat 49ers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers is capable of making throws under pressure at an elite level. His combination of speed, scrambling ability and arm strength all make it look easy when defenses start caving in the pocket and yet he still rockets a completed pass downfield to a tightly covered receiver.

But it wasn't Randall Cobb or Greg Jennings or Jordy Nelson or James Jones or...

Packers aim to match 49ers' physicality

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The physicality of the San Francisco 49ers cannot be questioned. With a defense that ranked second this season in points allowed and third in yards allowed, the 49ers have one of the NFL's elite groups.

Packers brace for physical 49ers
