Aaron Rodgers

Pre-Camp Preview: Quarterbacks

This is the first in a series of position-by-position previews of the 2018 Green Bay Packers following the OTAs and minicamps. Training camp begins on July 26.  TIM BOYLE: The undrafted rookie has ideal size and a strong arm, but his college stats were horrific. The former Eastern Kentucky star completed only 55% of his

Hey Aaron, Don’t Be Greedy

Aaron Rodgers is the best player on the Green Bay Packers, but he isn’t the Green Bay Packers. That’s something everyone needs to remember as the two sides engage in contract negotiations. The future Hall of Fame quarterback has every right to demand the world. And the iconic franchise has every right to just say

Aaron Preys On The Weak(er)

The website Pro Football Focus recently posted a story titled “Aaron Rodgers strategic avoidance.” If you don’t feel like reading it in its entirety, here’s the key point: “Over the past decade, only 403 of Aaron Rodgers’ 2,892 wide receiver targets were aimed at a wide receiver in coverage against a top-25-graded cornerback. That equates

The Ring’s The Thing

Winning Super Bowl LII would obviously make Packers fans extremely happy. But another ring would mean even more to Ted Thompson, Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers. It would place the general manager and the head coach on a path to Canton and it would make the quarterback a legend. Here’s a closer look at why winning

10 Most Irreplaceable Packers

We all found out last September just how important one player can be to the fortunes of a football team.

Rodgers Is A Great Deodorant

Forget Right Guard, the best deodorant in Green Bay is Quarterback. Marshall Newhouse at left tackle. Andrew Quarless at tight end. Brandon Jackson at running back. Don Barclay at, well, anywhere. Consistently bad defenses and special teams. Yep, Aaron Rodgers has been masking the stink for the past 8 seasons. If an extraterrestrial were to

Notes: Latest On Lang

T.J. Lang wants to stay with the Packers, and the Packers want to keep the Pro Bowl guard. Now the two sides need to compromise to make it happen. The player will have to take a less money, and the team will have to spend more than it wants. Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports reported over the weekend

Positional Analysis: Quarterback

This is the first of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starter (A+): Aaron Rodgers struggled a bit early, but ended the season playing the position about as well as it’s ever been played. New England’s Tom Brady will likely win the Lombardi Trophy and Atlanta’s Matt Ryan will probably win the MVP, but

Crosby Kicks Packers To Atlanta

Fans of the Green Bay Packers couldn’t take another January heartbreak, and thanks to huge plays by a handful of players in the final minutes of an incredible divisional round game against the top-seeded Dallas Cowboys, they didn’t have to. Instead, they were able to enjoy one of the most thrilling wins in franchise history.

Notes: Price Gets Raise

Green Bay gave rookie nose tackle Brian Price, who’s spent most of the season on the practice squad, a pay bump in order to keep him from signing with the Colts. Price had been making $6,900 a week as a member of the practice squad. The former Texas-San Antonio star is now making $26,470 a
