Get to Know an Offensive Lineman: Packers G Josh Sitton once blacked out during key block

Busy with dirty work in the trenches, offensive linemen don't get the glory enjoyed by "skilled" players. In fact, if their number gets called at all, that usually means they've screwed up. They don't get drafted to fantasy teams, and the casual NFL fan can probably name no more than a few big men up front. We here at The Buzzer want to give NFL offensive linemen...

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...

Rodgers overcomes 'nerves' to complete biggest comeback of career

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When Aaron Rodgers looked up at the scoreboard early in the second quarter and saw 21-3 in favor of the visiting New York Jets, the former NFL Most Valuable Player admitted he felt some nerves. It's not a situation that Rodgers has found himself in often in his seven years as the Packers starting quarterback. After outscoring the Jets 28-3 in the final 40 minutes...

Packers make big comeback for win over Jets

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Once they figured out the New York Jets' running game, the Green Bay Packers set the tone through the air.

Brewers make case for regained relevance with complete win

MILWAUKEE -- For quite some time now, the Milwaukee Brewers have longed for one of those breakout offensive performances where the final outcome isn't in doubt in the late innings. When the Brewers stranded six runners over the first three innings Sunday, another frustrating offensive game seemed on tap. But Milwaukee blew open the series finale with the Cincinnati Reds with...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Two concussions in the first 17 games of his NFL career has Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy thinking he might need to alter his aggressive style on the field. Lacy was medically cleared Thursday and practiced seven days after suffering a concussion in the Packers' Week 1 loss in Seattle. It was just a little less than one year ago that Lacy's...

Stuck on repeat: Brewers' losing ways continue vs. Marlins

MILWAUKEE -- The bad record the Milwaukee Brewers have been spinning on loop for the last 12 games played yet again at Miller Park on Monday night. This time the starting pitcher putting the Brewers in an early hole was Yovani Gallardo, who lasted just 3 2/3 innings. Again Milwaukee put runners on base, but three double plays killed any kind of momentum toward a big inning. Maybe...

Packers players embarrassed but not demoralized after enduring rout

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- To Datone Jones, it was a very embarrassing loss. For Mike Daniels, it was a sign that the Green Bay Packers simply have to get better. As Micah Hyde pointed out, it was a one-sided performance that clearly showed it will take a team's "A" game to beat the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. No matter who answered the question, players...

Emotional hijacking? Confidence issue? Opinions vary on QB Stave's struggles

The path is winding, and not even Joel Stave can know where it leads. He is a man without a rudder, fighting to move up stream against a current of confusion, unaware of the reasons behind a bizarre affliction in which the quarterback can no longer complete simple throws. The story has been well-documented over the past week. Stave, a two-year starter at Wisconsin, found himself...

Badgers report card: 'A win's a win'

Several Wisconsin players couldn't help but utter a common refrain following UW's 37-3 victory against Western Illinois at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday: "A win's a win." That's their way of saying the Badgers won ugly, and the score didn't indicate just how difficult it was to pull away from a pesky Leathernecks team. Wisconsin led just 9-3 at halftime...

Brewers Saturday: Braun late addition to lineup

MILWAUKEE -- Not originally slated to start Saturday, Milwaukee Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was a late addition to the lineup. Braun's nagging right thumb injury was the reason why he wasn't included in the first lineup posted by manager Ron Roenicke, but Milwaukee's skipper did indicate there was a chance things could change after batting practice. Apparently batting...

McEvoy finds passing groove in leading Badgers to win

MADISON, Wis. -- Tanner McEvoy's pass sailed down the left sideline, a looping spiral aimed directly at receiver Reggie Love's hands. It was the type of play the two surely would connect on nine out of 10 times, Love wide open with a 67-yard touchdown within his grasp. Then, Love dropped the pass. A low groan emanated from Camp Randall Stadium. And maybe -- just maybe --...

Back for another round of predictions and it should come as no surprise that everyone I could find is taking Wisconsin to beat Western Illinois.

If it is any consolation, the "experts" were right last week as the great majority...
