    Getty The Vikings are under fire after featuring a highlight of Anthony Barr's hit on Aaron Rodgers that fractured the quarterback's collarbone in a tribute video. What was a tribute to Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr quickly took a turn for the worst. Following the announcement of Barr’s signing with the Dallas Cowboys, the Vikings’ Twitter account posted a thank you video dedicated to the four-time Pro Bowl linebacker who spent a decade in Minnesota. However, a certain highlight struck Green Bay Packers fans, whose frustrations ignited in the comments. The latest Vikings news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Vikings newsletter here!

    Getty Aaron Jones #33 of the Green Bay Packers celebrates a first down against the Carolina Panthers during the third quarter in the game at Lambeau Field on November 10, 2019 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Minnesota Vikings have capitalized on an ongoing exodus across the border following Aaron Rodgers‘ return to the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers, who agreed to a three-year, $150 million deal, has seen his supporting cast disperse from Green Bay. The most notable departures, three wide receivers in DaVante Adams, Marquez Valdez-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown all left for new teams this offseason. Not to mention two-time Pro Bowl pass rusher Za’Darius Smith who signed with the Vikings on March 22, crossing the border after being released due to salary-cap restrictions.

    Lucas Patrick found himself biting his tongue on the sideline during the Green Bay Packers games against the Chicago Bears last season, watching Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields and “hoping this guy doesn’t get loose.” After signing a two-year, $8 million contract to join the Bears offensive line, Patrick now finds himself on the other side, looking forward to making sure Fields can perform at his highest level. “I mean, he’s got it,” Patrick said. “He can sling it, he can run it, he can do everything. But what I would say from our games, specifically the game that was here (in Chicago), he’s tough. He stood in there, and he’s tough. And he looked like he dealt with a lot this year not only coming in with that pressure he had but also physically dealing with some of the shots he took and some other things. “I don’t want to speak too much on statistics, but I’ve had a good track record over the last two years of blocking for a quarterback and keeping him pretty clean. And I...
    Former Packers fan favorite John Kuhn defended Aaron Rodgers after Greg Jennings called him out for reported contract demands. Reports earlier in the week suggested that Rodgers wanted to become the highest-paid player in the NFL, perhaps making as much as $50 million per year. Those numbers, as it turns out, were false per Rodgers himself. Before we had the benefit of such news, however, former Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings appeared on First Things First and took some shots at Rodgers. “Now all of a sudden you’re trying to take a large chunk of the pie, knowing that Davante Adams is out there,” Jennings said. “[Rodgers] understands what this means and what this does to the personnel. You might have to get rid of some of these guys.” "Aaron Rodgers has been a very selfish guy. … I go back to personal experiences. His words to me were, dont be that guy. All of a sudden, its about the money." — @GregJennings on reports that Rodgers wants to be NFLs highest-paid player: pic.twitter.com/UWYIoNZVUR — First Things First (@FTFonFS1) February...
    Green Bay Packers fans will never get over the blocked punt in the loss to the 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round.  It’s probably going to take years for Green Bay Packers fans to get over the loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round. Green Bay was expected to blast the 49ers, but things simply didn’t go according to plan. The special teams unit was a joke for the Packers, with things reaching a new low in the fourth quarter. Thanks to a blocked punt, Talanoa Hufanga scooped up the loose ball and ran into the end zone to tie the score. Then, Robbie Gould kicked the game-winning field goal. Well, a new look at that touchdown from Hufanga will infuriate the Packers faithful and give Niners fans a whole new angle of the epic moment.

    Former Packers fan favorite John Kuhn believes Aaron Rodgers will stay in Green Bay through next season at the very least. Packers fans will long remember Kuhn, a former Green Bay fullback who won a Super Bowl and made three Pro Bowls with Aaron Rodgers before leaving the franchise in 2016 for a brief tenure in New Orleans. Kuhn is a close friend of Rodgers, so he might have an idea as to what the Packers franchise quarterback intends to do after this season. In a CBS Sports Radio interview with Zach Gelb on Thursday, Kuhn gave his take. “This year has been very good for him. I’ve never seen him as happy and as joyful — and he is really enjoying the game as much as he has this year,” Kuhn said. “I just don’t see a situation where Aaron Rodgers actually leaves Green Bay.” Packers: Will Aaron Rodgers leave Green Bay?Before this season, Rodgers let it be known he was unhappy with Packers management. He felt he was ignored in key front office decisions by Brian Gutekunst, and...

    A brawl between fans of the Baltimore Ravens and the visiting Green Bay Packers appeared to drag an innocent bystander into the mix during Sunday's melee as both teams were playing on the field.  Videos posted to social media show the confrontation between fans at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium that escalated into a wild fight that lasted for several minutes. During the chaos, a fight breaks out and a fan wearing a Ravens jersey jumps in the middle of the fracas.  WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE  He appeared to jump on top of a female and pin her down in the middle of the scuffle.

    Aaron Rodgers already sought medical advice from Joe Rogan, why not also see what the president of the United States has to say? Rodgers’ highly scrutinized vaccination status reached the highest ranked official in the United States Tuesday afternoon, when President Joe Biden encouraged the Green Bay Packers quarterback to get immunized against Covid for real. While in Kentucky, visiting areas of the state that were recently devastated by deadly tornadoes, Biden found a woman wearing a Packers hat and shirt. “Tell that quarterback he’s gotta get the vaccine,” Biden told her. The unnamed Packers fan and others standing around the president laughed at the quip, while cameras caught the interaction. After telling reporters he was “immunized” against Covid earlier this year, NFL fans and media were stunned to learn Rodgers was actually unvaccinated when he tested positive for the virus last month. The NFL reports nearly 95 percent of its players are vaccinated against Covid and nearly 100 percent of league personnel received the jab. Despite widespread vaccinations, the NFL is getting battered by Covid right now as the...
    President Biden aimed a dig at coronavirus vaccine skeptic Aarons Rodgers while touring tornado damage in Kentucky today, telling local Packers fans that the quarterback should 'go get vaccinated.' While turning his back to the cameras, Biden was wrapping up a conversation with two women, patting one of them, who was wearing Green Bay Packers gear on the back and telling her: 'Tell your quarterback he's got to get the vaccine.'  CBS News reporter Ed O'Keefe tweeted the moment and said Biden, who's is an avid Packers fan, made the quip while wrapping up the conversation, much to the amuse of the two women. The president's personal plea to his favorite team's star quarterback comes a month after Rodgers admitted he had not been vaccinated against COVID-19, despite telling reporters in August that he was 'immunized'. The 38-year-old athlete tested positive for COVID in early November, at which time it became known he was not vaccinated. He missed the following against the Kansas City Chiefs, which the Packers lost 13-7 with Jordan Love filling in as quarterback.  Rodgers was heavily...

    Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears fans reveled in the Minnesota Vikings’ shocking loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The Minnesota Vikings wanted to put Week 1 behind them after they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in overtime.

And, subsequently, torn between who to blame if and when the Super Bowl-winning marriage ends in divorce. “The situation we face with Aaron Rodgers has divided our fan base,” Packers president Mark Murphy wrote in his monthly column answering fan mail on the team’s website. “The emails and letters that I’ve received reflect this fact.” Rodgers is seeking a trade because he thinks his relationship with management is broken beyond repair — a situation that started with the 2020 NFL Draft and the decision to pick quarterback Jordan Love without first informing the future Hall of Famer.

    Getty President and chief executive officer Mark Murphy of the Green Bay Packers looks on during warm-ups prior to the game against the New Orleans Saints at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on September 27, 2020 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Green Bay Packers team president Mark Murphy understands their ongoing situation with franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers has left fans “divided” over the past five weeks, but he also left no room for doubt as to where the team’s priorities lie. Writing in his monthly column for Packers.com, Murphy addressed for the first time directly the concerns fans have raised about the rift that has formed between the Packers and Rodgers, which was made public on April 29 when ESPN insider Adam Schefter broke the initial story. Both sides have since confirmed the troubles between them without providing many specifics, and Murphy seems intent on keeping things that way. “The situation we face with Aaron Rodgers has divided our fan base,” Murphy wrote in his June 5 column. “The emails and letters that I’ve received reflect this fact.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Kurt Benkert clapped back at a fan who criticized his video game tweet. The Green Bay Packers are in a bit of a bind when it comes to quarterback Aaron Rodgers. With the Packers unsure if he would show up to the facility this offseason with reports of him wanting off the team, they signed some insurance in the form of ex-Atlanta Falcons signal caller Kurt Benkert. On Monday, Benkert tweeted out an image of him playing video games while at the airport. That elicited a response from a Twitter user, who took a shot at Benkert for his lack of playing time in the NFL. That was when the quarterback responded, saying that him playing video games competitively helped raise over $100,000 for charity.

    Quarterback Aaron Rodgers reportedly had his last straw with the Green Bay Packers following the release of a certain wide receiver. Since this past Thursday, the football media world was enthralled with the news of quarterback Aaron Rodgers reportedly wanting off of the Green Bay Packers. The tension was there ever since the team traded up for quarterback Jordan Love in last year’s NFL Draft. But, there is another reported reason as to why the signal caller is miffed with the Packers. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Rodgers wanted to be more involved in the team’s personnel decisions. What “drove Rodgers nuts,” in Rapoport’s words, was when the team released former fan favorite wide receiver Jake Kumerow over a day after the quarterback praised him publicly. Rapoport called it a “a little bit of a death knell” in the relationship.

    Getty Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers warms up prior to the game against the New Orleans Saints at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on September 27, 2020 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Say it ain’t so, Cordarrelle. After the Chicago Bears decided not to re-sign All-Pro kickoff returner/wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson this offseason, the play-making veteran has been looking for a new team. The Bears signed Patterson to a two-year, $10 million contract in 2019, and he became a fast fan favorite in Chicago. Whether he was having a game of catch with a select fan in the stands before every game (a routine that was curbed by COVID-19) or including fans in his fun, frequent and incessant recruiting of other players via Twitter, Bears fans loved Patterson’s personality, and he’ll be missed in more ways than one in Chicago — which is why it would be such a bitter pill for them to swallow if the 30-year-old wound up playing for the Green Bay Packers.

    An NFL fan’s apparent sarcastic gripe over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeating the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship last weekend has gone viral. Ron Johnson’s letter to the editor printed in the Wisconsin State Journal took a similar tone to that of those who believe that Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election over Joe Biden.

    An elderly Green Bay Packers fan’s streak of going to every playoff game at Lambeau Field will continue Sunday in spite of the coronavirus pandemic. Fritzie Neitzel, 85, thought her streak was going to end. Lambeau Field has limited capacity because of COVID-19 and even as a season-ticket holder she couldn’t get the spot at the stadium. Steve Ewing heard Neitzel’s strife and decided to award Neitzel two tickets to Sunday’s game.

Her family tried to buy tickets for the game once they went on sale but to no avail. The Packers also have strict rules about transferring tickets because of the COVID restrictions making seats purchased on cellphones non-transferrable. TERRY BRADSHAW...
    This Green Bay Packers fan celebrated his last cancer treatment by shotgunning a beer in his Aaron Rodgers jersey.
