Great win on Sunday for the Packers. A signature win.
I’m not sure if I’d call this week’s stock report “great” or “signature,” but nonetheless, here it is:
After the first half, I thought this might be the week that Rodgers drops out of the rising category. Boy, than was a dumb thought. Rodgers came to life in the second half, overcoming several dropped passes and shaky protection to keep the Packers out front and eventually put together a game-winning drive with 58 seconds left. He finished with a QB rating of 106, his lowest of the season, but I think we’ll let that slide this one time.
Can you name another player on defense that did much of anything on Sunday? Walden had a few pressures. Shields tipped away a couple of passes. Raji was active early. Otherwise, Matthews was the lone bright spot on D.
It didn’t matter if Nelson was covered or only had a few inches to work with along the sideline, he was determined to make the catch when R...

Dave Tollefson was feeling good about the New York Giants' chances of upsetting Green Bay on Sunday. So good that the defensive end mocked Aaron Rodgers by performing the quarterback's celebratory move the pantomimed placement of a title belt around his waist following a fourth-quarter sack.
But Tollefson and the rest of the Giants ultimately learned there's a difference...
Everyone seems to want a piece of Aaron Rodgers and the reigning Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers - even at $250 a pop.
The Packers launched a public stock sale Tuesday morning and the response from fans was akin to a Cyber Monday frenzy.
Within the first 11 minutes of the sale, the team said 1,600 orders were placed at a cost of $250 per share.
The stock has no value to...
The Giants tied this game up with 58 seconds left in the game, as they scored too quickly. Aaron Rodgers quickly drove the Packers right down the field for a 31-yard, game winning field goal from Mason Crosby. Rodgers completed 28 of 46 passes for 369 yards with 4 TD passes and 1 INT. He also carried the ball 4 times for 32 yards (8.0 ypc) in this game. Ryan Grant “led”...
Imagine being Aaron Rodgers. Yes, you’re a superstar, Super Bowl MVP quarterback of the defending champion Green Bay Packers, finally removing that southern monkey attached to your back that was one Brett Favre. You follow up your impressive Super Bowl season by starting 2011 on an even more ridiculous string of classic QB play that puts you at the very top of the NFL at the same...
The Green Bay Packers have an MVP candidate in quarterback Aaron Rodgers, a Super Bowl championship won just 10 months ago and an undefeated team making a run toward another title for Titletown. The Packers now have hundreds of new owners, too.

Insurance companies spend a ton of money on advertising, and they don’t even have a product anyone really wants. Kind of like Keystone Light. The good news is that most of you will get to watch Aaron Rodgers in to the evening. The bad news is that you’ll have to endure five or six State Farm ads in that time.
The rest of the late games are pretty trashy. Cleveland and Arizona...
With their perfect season on the line, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense went right to work. Five plays and 58 seconds later, Green Bay passed its toughest test, says Don Banks.
We know Jerry Rice is just on ESPN because he maybe the best NFL player to ever play the game, not because he actually knows how to talk about it….but when he was asked today on NFL Live to pick an NFL team and player who’s stock he’d BUY LOW….he came up with these FANTASTIC answers.
WOW….either Jerry Rice is retarded or he’s just soft. Come on man! See I like the #fatty...
The Packers' pursuit of perfection continues. Aaron Rodgers threw four TD passes and Mason Crosby kicked the game-winning field goal as time expired to beat the Giants 38-35.
The Giants came to play tonight. That is what the fans who witnessed this game will remember.
The Giants (6-6) went blow-for-blow with the league’s best team – the Green Bay Packers (12-0) – and lost on a FG as time expired, 38-35.
Outside of a victory, you couldn’t have asked for anything more. This was a great game. Giant fans have nothing to be disappointed about tonight...
After two weeks of Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, the Giants are glad to finally be facing a quarterback who is, well, human.
