Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson awarded Week 2 biggest hero honors

Some teams are off to a fast start, others are stumbling out of the gates, and a majority are languishing somewhere in the middle. That’s the NFL landscape after two games.

New York Jets: Next Game vs. Bears will Show True Character

The New York Jets lost in as heart-breaking a fashion as you will ever see on Sunday afternoon. As a matter of fact, I don’t even think a film director could come up with as devastating a script for Jets Nation as this. The Jets were on fire to start the game, building a 21-3 2nd quarter lead against Aaron Rogers and the mighty Green Bay Packers. However, Rogers eventually found...

Jordy Nelson is Ridiculously Good in Green Bay Packers’ Win Over Jets

Few could question the sizable contract that the Green Bay Packers gave Jordy Nelson before the start of the 2014 season, after all he is one of football’s elite receivers. But after Sunday’s dominating performance against the New York Jets, it is easy to see why the Packers wanted him locked up long term. To put it simply, the Packers would not have defeated the Jets without...

Career-best game not quite enough for humble star Jordy Nelson

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was the biggest game of Jordy Nelson's career, but even 209 receiving yards to help the Green Bay Packers to a comeback win over the New York Jets didn't have the star wide receiver entirely satisfied. "I left some plays out there, honestly," Nelson said. "I had some opportunities to make more plays and didn't do it." Nelson was...

Jordy Nelson wants $10 million a year from Packers

A few weeks ago I was told that the Green Bay Packers and wide receiver Jordy Nelson were close to agreeing on a contract extension that would keep him in green and gold for a long time. Since then, Nelson’s contract demands have apparently grown a bit and the two sides aren’t as close as they once were. A report on Thursday claims that Nelson is seeking “at least” $10 million...
