In Depth 2014: Green Bay Packers

Green Bay was 5-2 and riding a four game winning streak when Chicago rolled into town. The Bears won the game and broke Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone in the process.

Seth Rogen Calls Aaron Rodgers ‘Eli’s Brother’ In ‘Neighbors’ Promo (Video)

Packers Made the Smart Move Re-Signing Matt Flynn

The Green Bay Packers made one really big mistake in the offseason leading up to the 2013 season–they didn’t address the backup quarterback position and simply gambled that Aaron Rodgers would stay healthy because he had in the past.
