Aaron Rodgers:

latest news at page 1:
    (CNN)Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are widely recognized as two of the greatest quarterbacks to ever grace the National Football League. The storied leaders' careers have primarily existed simultaneously yet side-by-side. They meet for what could be their final matchup on Sunday when the Green Bay Packers (1-1) travel south to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0). The Buccaneers are one of seven teams to start the season undefeated. In week one, they defeated the Dallas Cowboys, allowing only three points. In week two, they dominated once again, beating the New Orleans Saints 20-10. That's an average of 6.5 points per game, all while boasting the league's top scoring defense through two weeks. The Bucs are not an easy team to beat, thanks to a heavyweight QB in Brady, strong defensive core, and the mastermind of Todd Bowles. The Packers' start to the season has gone a little differently. They dropped an embarrassing loss to the Minnesota Vikings in week one, scoring just seven points. Read MoreIn week two, they notched their first win of the season over the Chicago...
    Three days after signing veteran receiver Cole Beasley to their practice squad, the Tampa Bay Bucs have announced they’re elevating him for tonight’s home opener against the Green Bay Packers. Beasley, 33, was moved up with veteran guard John Molchon, who has spent the majority of the past two seasons on Tampa Bay’s practice squad. Realistically, Beasley could provide a handful of quality reps for a unit that will be without Mike Evans (one-game suspension) and Chris Godwin (hamstring), and could be missing Julio Jones (knee). Jones will be a game-time decision, coach Todd Bowles said Friday. “[Beasley’s] quick, catches up to speed [really] fast, he understands the system,” Bowles added. “He’s played and he’s got a lot of reps under him, so if we needed him I think he’ll be ready.” Green Bay (1-1) at Tampa Bay (2-0) Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, WOFL-35 Betting line: Buccaneers by 1½, according to FanDuel SportsBook. Against the spread: Packers 1-1, Buccaneers 2-0. Series record: Packers lead 33-23-1. Last meeting: Bucs beat Packers 31-26, NFC championship game, Jan. 24, 2021, at Green Bay....
    Getty Aaron Rodgers believes Green Bay can lead to greater things for Sammy Watkins. The Green Bay Packers are still figuring things out with their new receiving corps just two games into the 2022 season, but Aaron Rodgers is already starting to see how the stars could align for Sammy Watkins’ NFL future. Watkins had a strong performance for the Packers in their home opener against the Chicago Bears in Week 2, catching three of his four targets for 93 yards with a 55-yarder in the fourth quarter that helped seal their 27-10 victory over their NFC North rivals. The 29-year-old has operated as a bit of a crutch for Rodgers as the Packers have begun to bring along their inexperienced group of receivers, and he heads into Week 3 as the their leader in receiving yards (111) and tied for their most receptions (six). A leading role wasn’t guaranteed for Watkins when he joined the Packers in mid-April in the aftermath of All-Pro Davante Adams getting traded to the Las Vegas Raiders. At the time, the Packers...
    Ahead of the Week 3 matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers, Tom Brady heaped praise on the “amazing” Aaron Rodgers. One of the biggest games of Week 3 is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking on the Green Bay Packers. This will be the first time that the two teams have met since the NFC Championship Game in 2020, when the Buccaneers held on to advance to Super Bowl 55, which they won in convincing fashion. This game is a must-watch, as it could be the final time that quarterbacks Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers face off. Ahead of the game on Sunday afternoon, Brady heaped praise on Rodgers, who he called “an amazing player,” that he loves watching him play. You can listen to Brady’s full comments in The Athletic’s Greg Auman’s tweet below.

    Former NFL player turned UFC fighter Austen Lane weighed in on who would make the best MMA fighter: Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes? As someone who has gone from the gauntlet of making an NFL roster to transitioning to an entirely new contact sport, Austen Lane is uniquely qualified to determine who would fare well in the Octagon. Even though the NFL’s leading quarterbacks spend their offseasons working on their golf game, it may be time for one of them to consider UFC training. When FanSided’s Amy Kaplan asked Lane who would make the best NFL-UFC transition between Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady, Lane offered a hilarious answer as to why he’s rolling with Rodgers. “Aaron Rodgers is on that ayahuasca kick right now, so you know what I mean? When you do that ayahuasca stuff, it can kind of free your mind a little bit, open your mind to different things. You talk about jujitsu and flowing…” Lane further elaborated on why he was picking Rodgers over Mahomes when it came to potential UFC prowess....
    Getty Aaron Rodgers is putting a bit more on the shoulders of his rookie receivers in 2022. The Green Bay Packers are still figuring things out with their new rookie wide receivers two games into the 2022 season, but there are some in high-ranking positions around the league who believe second-round pick Christian Watson could have a starring role before the year is over. Heavy NFL insider Matt Lombardo recently spoke with an NFC personnel executive about the Packers’ current situation at receiver and asked which of their pass-catchers he believes has the best chance of breaking out and making an impact in 2022. In his opinion, though, the emergent star won’t be the guy Aaron Rodgers has talked up as their new WR1 or veteran addition Sammy Watkins. “It’s going to have to be Christian Watson,” The exec told Lombardo. “He has size, speed, and big-play ability. It’s a big receiver game now, the majority of the offensive snaps that you see around the league. Christian fits that mold. He dominated at the lower level of college...
    Aaron Rodgers rejected the outrage caused by a Green Bay Packers touchdown celebration on Sunday. Rodgers has been open about his ayahuasca use over the last offseason, so Packers players decided to playfully poke fun at their quarterback by taking turns sipping the drug. Only Rodgers insists that it’s actually being misclassified. “Ayahuasca is not a drug. It has properties in it that have hallucinogenic abilities,” Rodgers said to hosts of the Pat McAfee Show Pat McAfee and AJ Hawk after McAfee referred to it as a drug. “Ayahuasca isn’t a drug it’s a plant & I think that’s a very important point to make” [email protected]#PMSLive #ART pic.twitter.com/xJyCiiP3Kn — Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) September 20, 2022 The drug dimethyltryptamine, also known as DMT, is in ayahuasca which is classified as a Schedule I drug in the US. “Those biases create fears and those fears prevent them from doing the research themselves or looking into it or having their own idea or truth about certain situations,” Rodgers added.

    Aaron Rodgers is an all-world quarterback and the reigning back-to-back NFL MVP. But when he’s on the road in Tampa, he’s had an extremely rough go of it. Struggling isn’t something that Aaron Rodgers does all that often and something you could argue that he’s never done consistently since he took over as the Green Bay Packers starting quarterback. That’s also something the franchise is hoping will keep up in the 2022 season after a disastrous Week 1 performance that was followed by a dominant Week 2 victory. But now Rodgers and the Packers head to Raymond James Stadium in Week 3 for a matchup with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. And when the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback has visited Tampa (whether Brady has been there or not), he’s looked more like a quarterback that Bucs fans are all too familiar with: Jameis Winston. Rodgers has quarterbacked the Packers four times at Raymond James Stadium and his numbers have been absolutely horrendous. Per Jacob Morley of 247Sports, he’s thrown for just 909 yards with only three touchdowns over those four games...

    Aaron Rodgers not only owns the Chicago Bears, but he is keeping tabs on all the Green Bay Packers’ victories over them, past, present and potentially in the future. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers owns the Chicago Bears and everyone knows it. With these NFC North rivals squaring off at Lambeau Field on Sunday Night Football in Week 2, everybody outside of Chicagoland knew this game was over before toe even met leather. The two-time reigning NFL MVP vs. a second-year quarterback and a first-time head coach in Green Bay. Give me a break, dude. The Packers won easily 27-10, resulting in another primetime snooze fest.

    The Green Bay Packers created quite a stir on social media with fans pointing out one of their touchdown celebrations appeared to be a reference to Aaron Rodgers' public admission to using ayahuasca. The team's star quarterback made waves across the world earlier in the summer when he credited his back-to-back MVP awards to the effects of the Amazonian psychedelic drug, which he first used on a trip to Peru in 2020. Earlier this month he admitted to dabbling in ayahuasca again this year and after finding Allen Lazard in their Week 2 game with the Chicago Bears, the Packers endzone celebration seemed to show players miming an ayahuasca ritual. Lazard took the football and pretended to pour something from it and hand it to his teammates with those stars then collapsing to the ground. One social media user wrote: 'Pretty sure this was an Ayahuasca celebration,' while another added: 'Packers do an Aaron Rodgers-inspired ayahuasca ceremony TD celebration.'

    Aaron Rodgers found Allen Lazard for a touchdown just before halftime and the Packers hilariously shouted out their QB with an ayahuasca celebration. Aaron Rodgers’ exploits have been under the microscope over the past year and a half but one of the wildest revelations from the Green Bay Packers quarterback was that he had been attending ayahuasca retreats. For those unaware, ayahuasca is a psychedelic tea with hallucinogenic properties. The reigning back-to-back NFL MVP opened up about how his experiences with ayahuasca opened him up to self-love and even credited his journey with helping him to take home the league’s highest individual honors and be a better teammate and leader on the Packers. So, of course, the rest of the team had to shout that out in their own way on primetime in their Sunday Night Football matchup against the Chicago Bears.Packers ayahuasca celebration even had Aaron Rodgers laughingRight at the end of the first half, Rodgers found Allen Lazard for a five-yard touchdown that pulled Green Bay ahead, 24-7.

    Chicago Bears defensive end Robert Quinn stated the team’s mentality for their “Sunday Night Football” meeting with the Green Bay Packers in five words: “Last week is last week.” The Packers may have made costly mistakes in their 23-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1. But the Bears are preparing for the usual challenge at Lambeau Field against their NFC North rivals, who have won six straight and 11 of the last 12 meetings. “I’m sure they’ve got a little chip on their shoulder coming off a loss,” Quinn said. “We’re not really concerned about them. We’re concerned about ourselves and what we have to do to win the game. They took a loss, and we won last week. But last week is last week. We’ve just got to prepare for this week and see if we can keep something great going in this locker room.” So much about this game is in Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ element. He had a 113.8 passer rating in eight home starts last year, owns a 109.1 rating in Sunday night games...

    Getty Amari Rodgers didn't play a single offensive snap against the Vikings in the Packers' season opener. There might not be a better way of illustrating where Amari Rodgers currently stands with the Green Bay Packers than looking at how Aaron Rodgers recently responded to two different questions about his young wide receivers. When Rodgers was asked about the outlook for rookie Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs during his locker-room Q&A sessions with reporters on September 14, he answered sincerely about the work-in-progress wideouts: “These are good kids. They really are. They want to please, they want to do the right thing, they care about it. I’m going to figure out a way to continue to get on the same frequency with them.” Now, look at how Rodgers answered when asked about Amari Rodgers and his role with the offense after he received zero offensive snaps in Week 1’s opener: “Yeah, he’s returning for us now,” Rodgers said. “That’s all I’ve got on that.” Here’s the video of his response from https://t.co/jY7zCj3xgq (question from @KyleMalzhan) if you want to...
    Erin Andrews has revealed her taxi driver fell asleep behind the wheel on a Chicago highway and was snoring - all while she was on a Zoom call which included Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Andrews was headed to Green Bay for a sit-down interview with Rodgers and was on a call with the 38-year-old and some of her Fox Sports colleagues when she heard the driver firing out some zeds. Speaking on her podcast 'Calm Down', she explained to co-host Charissa Thompson: 'I had to fly from LA to Chicago and I had a car service to take me to Green Bay.  'The guy picks me up, newer car, power outlets, we're going great.

    Getty Cole Beasley makes a catch in a game against the New England Patriots. Aaron Rodgers is in need of a steady veteran wide receiver and Cole Beasley is in search of a team — a situation that could provide the former Buffalo Bills receiver a pathway back into the NFL. The Green Bay Packers came into this season as a popular Super Bowl pick, but struggled in Week 1 as Rodgers failed to find chemistry with the team’s mostly young crop of wide receivers. With the veteran Beasley still openly campaigning to find a team, the pair could be a fit. Rodgers Could Need Help There is not yet panic in Green Bay after the Packers fell to the Minnesota Vikings in the season opener, but one NFL executive told Heavy.com’s Matt Lombardo that something needs to change quickly. Rodgers lost his best weapon in receiver Davante Adams, and hasn’t yet clicked with the new group of receivers. “I understand you have a damn good quarterback,” the executive said. “But, you gave away his weapon. His most dangerous...
    When the Chicago Bears left the field at halftime of Sunday’s season opener against the San Francisco 49ers down 7-0, the offensive coaches and players didn’t have a lot of positive stats to discuss on the rainy day. The Bears didn’t reach 49ers territory until there were 2 minutes, 17 seconds left in the second quarter and even on that drive failed to get points because of an odd towel penalty on a field-goal attempt. Bears quarterback Justin Fields had completed 3 of 9 passes for 19 yards with an interception and a 2.8 passer rating. The Bears had 68 net offensive yards, and no wide receiver or tight end had a catch. Yet as the Bears regrouped in the locker room for what would become a 19-point second half in a comeback win, Fields saw body language from offensive coordinator Luke Getsy that “brought everybody (to) their feet.” Getsy was smiling. “It’s confident,” Fields said Wednesday. “That’s one thing that I take from him, he’s a very confident guy. He gives the rest of the guys confidence. I didn’t...
    The proposal began gaining traction three days before kickoff. Inside the Green Bay Packers offensive meetings, a think-big pitch was floated. What about starting the 2022 season with a massive home run cut? Hear this out. First play in Minnesota in Week 1. Spread rookie speedster Christian Watson out to the right. Schoolyard go route. It was music to Aaron Rodgers’ ears. The four-time MVP quarterback has been impressed with Watson’s burst and figured it would be cool to give the newcomer from North Dakota State a chance to start his NFL career with some sizzle. “We had talked about it. ‘Do you really want to start off with a bomb shot?’ ” Rodgers said. “I said, ‘Yeah. What the hell? Why not? Ya know? This kid can really fly. Let’s give him a chance.’ ” By now, we all know what happened when that vision was put into action. Early in the first quarter Sunday in Minneapolis, Watson lined up outside the numbers against eight-time Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson and dazed him for a split-second with a nasty...
    MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA – SEPTEMBER 11: Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers on the field during the first quarter in the game against the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium on September 11, 2022 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. (Photo by David Berding/Getty Images) The Green Bay Packers are adjusting to life without Davante Adams. That means it’s on Aaron Rodgers to take his game to another level. As easy as it would be to blame those around him — and Rodgers has tried, trust us — it’s on No. 12 to improve his own game, and adjust to those around him. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some ways Rodgers can up his level of play prior to Week 2, when Green Bay will take on the Chicago Bears. Rodgers has previously claimed to “own” the Packers biggest rival, and it’s easy to see why — the stats don’t lie. But Week 2 represents a dangerous scenario for Green Bay. Should the Packers lose, they’d fall two games behind the Bears (and perhaps the Vikings), while both...
    Aaron Rodgers’ gave a blunt answer when answering a question about wide receiver Amari Rodgers’ role in the offense. This past Sunday, the Green Bay Packers lost 23-7 to the Minnesota Vikings, due in part to the offense being unable to get anything going. Specifically, the receiving game, where they were single-handedly out-gained as a unit by Vikings star wide receiver Justin Jefferson. In the game, one receiver who did not log a single snap on offense was Amari Rodgers, the team’s 2021 third-round pick out of Clemson. When asked by Kyle Malzahn of WFRV Local 5 about the wide receiver’s fit in the offense, quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that he’s “returning for us now.” You can listen to Rodgers’ comments in The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman’s tweet below: Here’s the video of his response from https://t.co/jY7zCj3xgq (question from @KyleMalzhan) if you want to see exactly how he answered: https://t.co/xLB6DLTjY9 pic.twitter.com/ARWrzjiAe9 — Matt Schneidman (@mattschneidman) September 14, 2022 Aaron Rodgers on Amari Rodgers: ‘He’s returning for us now’ Well, there you have it.

    An old NFL adage is it’s not who you play but when you play them. That could apply to the Chicago Bears’ Week 2 matchup Sunday night at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers. The Bears appear to be catching their rivals at the right time — if there is such a thing in a series that has been lopsided for the better part of three decades during the Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers eras in Green Bay. It would be overstating it to say the Packers are reeling after an opening 23-7 road loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but it’s probably fair to call them a little stunned. Las Vegas oddsmakers don’t see it this way. The Packers opened as nine-point favorites and the line has moved to 10, evidence the wagering public isn’t putting a lot of stock in the Bears’ splash-filled 19-10 upset of the San Francisco 49ers to begin the Matt Eberflus era. That’s fine with the Bears, who have maintained they’re more focused on improving than concerning themselves with outside narratives. They’re also not...
    Getty Aaron Rodgers didn't have much to say about Amari Rodgers' chances of getting to shine for the Packers offense. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t seem to think too much about second-year wide receiver Amari Rodgers and his outlook for the Green Bay Packers’ offense. Rodgers was forced to lean on a number of his young receiver in Week 1’s season-opening loss to the Minnesota Vikings without veteran Allen Lazard in the lineup, including rookie Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs along with Juwann Winfree. But one name that was noticeably absent from the lineup was Amari Rodgers, who did not play a single offensive snap despite being the Packers’ primary punt and kick returner. Now, part of the problem is Rodgers plays primarily in the slot where veteran Randall Cobb gets the majority of his reps, but he is a young receiver they traded up to get in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft who showed improvements in the preseason. He is also someone the Packers indicated could get some reps out of the backfield as a jet...
    Aaron Rodgers has never been one to accept accountability for failure, and it continued to manifest itself in his latest radio appearance.  Honestly speaking, is Aaron Rodgers ever going to accept accountability, or do we live in a world where he can do no wrong? In his latest appearance on the Pat McAfee show, Rodgers talked about the loss to Minnesota in Week 1 and made comments that come across as throwing everyone except himself under the bus.

Sure, it’s the first game of the season. But what about Rodgers’ play? He didn’t exactly drop jaws, so to speak. Rodgers completed 22/34 for 195 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception. It’s also important to note that Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson nearly had as many receiving yards as Rodgers’ passing yards, 184 to 195. How can he explain that without critiquing himself?Aaron Rodgers will never accept accountability for his poor...

    After a strong performance by Davante Adams and a weak one by Aaron Rodgers in Week 1, the stats show how much the latter misses the former. It’s only been one week, but signs and stats are beginning to show how much Aaron Rodgers is missing the reliability of Davante Adams. Though Green Bay and Las Vegas fell to Minnesota and Los Angeles respectively, one of the two had a better game, and that happens to the former Packer who now is in Sin City with Derek Carr.

    The Chicago Bears still were in evaluation mode Monday after their rain-drenched 19-10 upset against the San Francisco 49ers, with coaches poring over film and handing out grades for what went right and wrong. But Bears linebacker Roquan Smith knows what’s ahead. It’s Green Bay Packers week, and in an intriguing development, the Packers didn’t play well in Week 1. The Minnesota Vikings beat them 23-7 in Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell’s debut. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 195 yards with no touchdowns, an interception and a lost fumble while playing with a young group of wide receivers. And he was sacked four times behind an offensive line missing David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins. Now the Bears — coming off a victory that surprised many outsiders if not the coaches and players — draw Rodgers on Sunday night at Lambeau Field in Week 2. “(Rodgers) is obviously one of the greatest to ever play the game, and you know as a competitor I love going against people like that,” Smith said. “I’m sure he will be a little bit pissed...

    Getty Aaron Rodgers sought out Vikings star Justin Jefferson on the field after the Packers' season-opening loss in Minnesota. Aaron Rodgers didn’t leave Minnesota without telling Vikings star receiver Justin Jefferson exactly how he felt about his current level of play in the NFL. After Jefferson torched the Packers defense for nine catches, 184 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay’s season-opening loss on Sunday, Rodgers sought out the former first-round pick on the field in the postgame and paid him one of the highest compliments a receiver can receive from a four-time NFL MVP quarterback. “[You were] the best player on the field today,” Rodgers told him as they embraced in moment the NFL captured on video.

    Aaron Rodgers declares he’s not going on Fox News and says his personal medical decisions are driven by common sense and not politics. Rodgers sat down with Bill Maher for the Sunday edition of his podcast, Club Random, to discuss his career and independent views. During the conversation, the pair discussed how both of them have been labeled conservatives since speaking out on the negative effects of Covid policies and vaccines. “So your politics obviously are not very conservative, but I never thought they were. The reason why people say conservative is anytime you get outside the box, including medically,” Maher observed. “If I don’t want to use hand sanitizer or I want to make up my own mind about how many boosters I want to get — zero. Somehow that makes me a conservative,” Maher said. “It doesn’t make me a conservative.” “I was championed by the Right, by my vax status and I’m like — I was getting weekly requests to go on Fox News,” Rodgers revealed. “I’m like, ‘I’m not fucking going on Fox News.’ I’m like,...
    Kirk Cousins continues to have Aaron Rodgers’ number in their head-to-head matchups. Kirk Cousins improves to 5-4-1 versus Aaron Rodgers head-to-head as NFC starting quarterbacks. The Minnesota Vikings defeated the Green Bay Packers 23-7 on Sunday evening in Week 1. While the Packers have a bad habit of hitting the snooze button in Week 1 of NFL seasons, Cousins continues to play his best brand of football when facing the star quarterback of his rival team. While his kryptonite still remains the primetime window, Rodgers is no Superman versus Cousins. If only Cousins was the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers… If that were the case, Rodgers would never have a chance against him under any circumstances.

Aaron Rodgers hasn’t shied away from expressing his admiration for Justin Jefferson despite the two NFL stars being on rival teams. The Green Bay Packers quarterback was humbled on September 11 after the Minnesota Vikings held him without a passing touchdown when playing a full game for just the second time in his career. The two-time reigning NFL MVP offered some serious praise to Jefferson who was tantamount to the VIkings’ 23-7 victory over the Packers.Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Tells Vikings WR Justin Jefferson is the Best Player in the GameMeeting at midfield after Sunday’s season opener, Rodgers told Jefferson he’s the “best player in the game today,” according to ESPN.

(Photo by David Berding/Getty Images) Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had some of his biting criticisms of the Minnesota Vikings come back to haunt him after his Week 1 loss.  The confidence Aaron Rodgers wields is a sight to behold. For Packers fans, it is everything that has fueled the back-to-back NFL MVP through two impeccable seasons. Of course, as detractors will note, Rodgers’ hubris has haunted him in the postseason for the past decade. And nowhere is Rodgers’ more condescending than as self-appointed king of his division, the NFC North. Rodgers famously said he owns the Chicago Bears, and he’s even gone as far as to double down on that claim in the year since his decree. But following a 7-23 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, much of Rodgers’ heated talk has transformed into freezing cold takes — and now is...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers gave Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson some huge praise after their Week 1 matchup. The Minnesota Vikings entered a new era this season, as they have a new head coach in Kevin O’Connell and a new general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah. But, the offense was essentially the same, led by star wide receiver Justin Jefferson. In Week 1 against the rival Green Bay Packers, Jefferson made a statement. In Minnesota’s 23-7 victory, Jefferson caught nine receptions for 184 yards and two touchdowns on 11 targets. After the game, Jefferson received some huge praise from Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, calling him the “best player in the game today.” "Best player in the game today." – @AaronRodgers12 to @JJettas2 pic.twitter.com/nuAwuTc2r7 — NFL (@NFL) September 11, 2022 Aaron Rodgers calls Justin Jefferson ‘best player in the game today’ Jefferson made an immediate impact.

    Aaron Rodgers tried to throw a block on Za’Darius Smith and it ended exactly the way you probably thought it did.  It was a rough Week 1 for the Green Bay Packers, but a particularly rough one for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Things got off to a painfully slow start for the Packers, who didn’t put any points on the board until after halftime. Rodgers threw his first interception against an NFC North team since 2019, and was abused by the Vikings pass rush all afternoon. What he lacked in production under center he failed to make up for in other areas of his game. On the Packers first touchdown drive of the day, Rodgers tried to throw a block on Za’Darius Smith but it didn’t go the way he probably expected it would.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not happy during the first half of their Week 1 game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Green Bay Packers have had an eventful offseason, which was highlighted by the overhaul of the wide receiver room. But, the team still has Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, the back-to-back NFL MVP. Even with the influx of young wide receivers, you could never rule him out in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. Instead, the Packers got off to a disastrous start, as they trailed the Vikings 17-0 heading into halftime. Minnesota’s star wide receiver Justin Jefferson recorded six catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns in the first half alone. Meanwhile, the Packers were unable to get anything going on offense.

    Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are going to win Super Bowl LVII. The quirky quarterback is talented enough to overcome the loss of his top receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders in the offseason. Coordinator Joe Barry’s defense might be in the best in the league paced by star corner Jaire Alexander, the best NFL player that no one talks about. And Rich Bisaccia’s hiring as special teams coordinator will improve the unit that doomed Matt LaFleur in January’s 13-10 division round loss at Lambeau Field to the San Francisco 49ers. The Buffalo Bills are the chalk, and they proved why with their opening night beatdown of the reigning champion L.A. Rams. The Cincinnati Bengals seem capable of getting back to the big stage and finishing the job. The Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens New Orleans Saints and Las Vegas Raiders all seem poised to possibly make runs. Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs and Tom Brady’s Bucs certainly have the pedigree from recent titles of their own. But LaFleur and Rodgers have...

    Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodger has said closures due to COVID throughout 2020 and 2021 destroyed thousands of small businesses in towns across California. Speaking to Bill Maher on his Club Random podcast, out Sunday, Rodgers called out the state's tough COVID-19 rules saying: 'State's going to s*** but I'm hanging on.' Stay-at-home orders forced the closure of bars and restaurants and thousands of other businesses from hair salons to spas.  'I grew up in a small town, very little cases up in Chico, California but all the small businesses? F***ing gone,' Rodgers lamented. Business capacity limits and other restrictions were in place from March 2020 until June 2021. The decisions crippled businesses across California with 40,000 estimated to have collapsed - the highest figure in any state across the nation.

    Getty Former Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings said the Vikings don't fear Aaron Rodgers ahead of their 2022 season opener. The Minnesota Vikings enter a new era on Sunday under first-year coach Kevin O’Connell. O’Connell, inheriting an embarrassment of riches on offense, has been tasked with turning around a Vikings team that hasn’t had a winning record over the past two seasons. The Green Bay Packers have benefited at Minnesota’s expense, winning three consecutive division titles.

    Marcedes Lewis wasn't sure about joining the Green Bay Packers ... until he got a phone call from Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers has always been a huge fan of what veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis brings to the Green Bay Packers, but it turns out he played a bigger role than people realize in bringing the former first-round pick to the team. Lewis published a personal piece to The Players’ Tribune on September 9 — entitled “For the G” — in which he described what it has meant to him to be a Packer over the past four seasons of his career. He talked about how “special” and “unique” of a place Green Bay is and declared that “the sky is the limit” for the Packers’ offense heading into their first season since 2014 without Davante Adams in the lineup. He also explained how he might not have even been a part of it if it weren’t for a phone call he received from Rodgers back in March 2018 that shaped his future.Rodgers Called Lewis ‘The Perfect Piece...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has dominated the NFC North, but hasn’t beaten Kirk Cousins of late. Rodgers made a bold statement about the rest of the division this week, and while it ruffled some feathers, it’s not necessarily wrong. “All the other teams in the NFC North, it seems like every single year, I think their fanbase and their teams feel like, ‘This is our year to win the North,'” Rodgers said. “Hasn’t really been the case during my time, for the most part.” In fact, the stats largely back Rodgers up, especially in recent years. Per Statmuse, in his last two seasons against NFC North opponents, Rodgers has thrown 38 touchdowns and no interceptions. That…does not seem human.

    Packers tight end Robert Tonyan is still uncertain to play in Week 1's opener against the Vikings. Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan Jr. is still working back from a season-ending knee injury, but his quarterback believes he can ascend to a “Pro Bowl-caliber level” for them in 2022 once he gets back on the field. Tonyan has spent the better part of the last year in recovery from an ACL tear he sustained on October 28 and began this year’s training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, but the 28-year-old has been participating in team drills at practice since August 29 and making progress toward being ready for the Packers’ season opener against the Minnesota Vikings on September 11. As of September 8, the Packers were still keeping Tonyan limited in practice and have not committed to him playing against the Vikings just yet, but the reviews from Rodgers about Tonyan’s progress have been encouraging, to say the least. “He looks great,” Rodgers said on September 7. “He’s really gifted, he has great...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers casually annihilates the rest of his NFC North division with a single locker room comment — yet he isn’t wrong.  Every year begins the same in the frigid NFC North. Fans in Detroit, Chicago and the Twin Cities huddle around the television, hoping that this year will finally be their year. And this year, each of these teams has good reason to be optimistic. Anyone can root for the “Detroit vs. everybody” mentality displayed on “Hard Knocks”, as well as this season’s cast of capable Lions players. The Minnesota Vikings have undergone a complete administrative overhaul, bringing in general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and coach Kevin O’Connell to ferret out the best in their personnel. And the Chicago Bears, playing on a newly-renovated field owned by their NFC North rival, head into the season with all their projected offensive starters healthy and ready for action. A new coach in Matt Eberflus and another year for quarterback Justin Fields inspire hope in Chicago fans that this year will be different. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t think so. From...

(Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images) The Green Bay Packers are looking for a playmaker in the passing game following disheartening injury news Wednesday, and a former Super Bowl champion is ready to rise to the occasion. The Packers were already thin at wide receiver, and that was before Allen Lazard’s availability became a question mark due to an ankle injury that’s kept him out of regular practice work for over a week. If Lazard remains sidelined Sunday for the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings, the top job at the position may fall to Sammy Watkins by default. “Aaron Rodgers has called Allen Lazard a WR1 all year,” ESPN’s Rob Demovsky tweeted on September 7. “If Lazard (ankle) can’t go, then Sammy Watkins could be the No. 1 option.” Watkins was asked Wednesday about the possibility of assuming Lazard’s duties in his first game with the franchise, exuding extreme and believable confidence in his response....
    Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur responded to Za’Darius Smith’s claims that he was mistreated by the Green Bay Packers after getting injured last year. Week 1 will feature a battle between NFC North rivals between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. The matchup features Za’Darius Smith, who is now a member of the Vikings after spending the previous three years with the Packers. Ahead of the season, Smith claimed that he was “treated bad” by the Packers last year after he got hurt. When speaking to the media on Wednesday, head coach Matt LaFleur responded to Smith’s claims, saying that he has “a different perspective on how things transpired.” Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was also asked about Smith’s comments, where he said he didn’t “want to add fuel to the fire,” but expressed that he agreed with what LaFleur had to say.
