aaron rodgers

Okay now that we have the football stuff covered, and all the speculation of about Aaron Rodgers ‘  health has been done, we can return to your regularly scheduled programming, the rumors and speculation about Rodgers’ personal life, sexual orientation.

No, we’re joking. Sort of.

You have to hand it to Aaron Rodgers. As a NFL superstar quarterback, he has all the distractions (money, celebrity girlfriends, fame, the life of a rock star) that could impair his game.

julie-henderson-aaron-rodgers

While appearing on a Wisconsin radio station during the week of the so-called “rivalry” game with the Chicago Bears, Aaron Rodgers urged Packers fans worried about the team’s 1-2 start to “R.E.L.A.X.”

“Relax don’t do it. When you want to go through it. Relax, don’t do it. When you want to come.”

McCarthy miffed that his Green Bay Packers Assts aren’t coaching candidates


green-bay-packers-draft

As the Green Bay Packers head to Seattle with a Super Bowl berth on the line, there are two story-lines that are bound to be drowned out by the overkill of cliche “keys to the game,” “who has the edge in this match-up?” and “Who is the X factor?” rubbish that will be exceedingly shopworn between now and Sunday.

Every single outlet will go with those three narratives ad nauseam. And of course, people will be searching online about Aaron Rodgers’ personal life. Because every time Rodgers is on television, that’s exactly what happens. Google’s numbers bear that out.

But here’s something different, here’s a fresh Green Bay Packers storyline.

New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers: franchise twins


aaron rodgersbrady

In 1997, the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots came together for a Super Bowl in New Orleans. In 2007, the Pack finished a couple plays short of joining the NE Pats in the NFL title game once again. This season, a Packers-Patriots finale could very well happen; and it’s becoming a trendy pick to actually forecast this scenario.

Bears-Packers Preview, Prediction: Marc Trestman seat scorches


marc trestman

Marc Trestman will soon learn why Jay Cutler is the NFL answer to Deron Williams; a coach killer. It’s easy to scapegoat Cutler given that he’s like the 7-Up of caring: “Never have. Never Will.” However, he’s far from the biggest problem this season. Statistically, he’s having his best season ever, his first 90+ passer rating.

Unfortunately, that’s only good for 13th in the NFL, and the Bears passer rating allowed this season is on par with Cutler’s production. So you can blame the entire defense as much as you can blame Marc Trestman as much as you can blame the $22.3 million dollar man.

andrew luck

Though they tend to look unconcerned or be secretive about it, all great players, given a chance to open up about their deepest desires, would tell you that they’d want to be the NFL MVP at some point in their careers. Besides the usual bragging rights for the player, winning the prestigious MVP award comes with a lot of remarkable commendations for the player’s team, plus of course some monetary benefits.

Brett Favre will always be true TD pass leader not Peyton Manning


favre-peyton-manning denver broncos season preview

God, there’s a heck of a lot to like about Peyton Manning.

Frankly, I can’t recall any quarterback in NFL history who’s hustled pizza, sold the “glamour” of Buick Veranos or grasped the information-driven, pre-snap read quite like the young man whose only problem at Tennessee was that Steve Spurrier was at Florida. But, that’s not the reason for today’s impromptu gathering.

Olivia Munn doesn’t play defense for Green Bay’s opponent each week


Olivia Munn

Ever since Aaron Rodgers took over for Brett Favre as the Packers’ starting quarterback in 2008, Green Bay has been one of the most successful franchises in the NFL—if not the most successful. With six straight playoff appearances and counting, the Packers are tied with the New England Patriots for longest active streak of making the postseason.

NY Jets should effectively rush Aaron Rodgers


Mo Wilk

This NY Jets defense contains arguably Rex Ryan’s best pass rush since he came to New York in 2009.

Through the years, he’s been able to call defensive gems against the likes of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. He did so against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers back in 2010, but the offense faltered and the Jets were shutout 9-0. Rodgers went just 15 of 34 for 74 yards and 0 touchdowns in that one.

Time for Green Bay Packers fans to panic?


green-bay-packers-draft

The Green Bay Packers had about as disastrous a start to the season as possible, but let’s not overreact. It’s a very long season, and the Green Bay Packers still have a great team. They still have to be considered the favorite in the NFC North despite their humiliation in Seattle.

CBS Sports and NFL Network hosted a Thursday Night Football conference call with Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports, and Executive Producer of THE NFL ON CBS, Brian Rolapp, EVP of Media, NFL, the Thursday Night Football announce team of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, and studio analysts Deion Sanders and Bill Cowher.
