Matthews happy to do what Packers ask but prefers outside linebacker

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Mike McCarthy approached Clay Matthews after the Green Bay Packers' bye week to tell the star outside linebacker that the defense planned to begin using him at a different position.

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 a voice and some...

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 obviously a harsh critic of himself...

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.

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...
