Russell Wilson Staturday: QBs mostly struggle against winning teams on the road. Mostly.

Moshtly. On the bright side of watching the Seahawks at home, you've seen them win a lot more than they lose. On the downside ... Wait, I forgot that there wasn't a downside. One of the most pleasurable experiences for Seattle fans these last three years has been seeing Aaron Rodgers, the absolute greatest quarterback in football (and I do believe that to be true) really suck against the Seahawks on the road. Rodgers has come to Seattle three times since the beginning of 2012 and is 0-3. It started with the replacement refs game, it ended with the comeback, and sandwiched between was a...

2015 Most Important Packers No. 18: Davante Adams, WR

   Photo/ Davante Adams received high praise this offseason from Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy. GREEN BAY – If Aaron Rodgers is right about Davante Adams – and the NFL MVP’s track record as an amateur pro personnel director is pretty good – then the Green Bay Packers can expect a breakout season from their second-year wide receiver.Adams’ quarterback wasnt the only one singing his praises this offseason – his head coach, Mike McCarthy, was as well, calling Adams the offseason MVP, which would indicate the coaching staff’s expectations for Adams – but it was Rodgers’...

2015 NFL Top 100: Aaron Rodgers comes in at No. 2

Are you surprised? The NFL Network wrapped up its annual Top 100 countdown on Wednesday. In a bit of a surprise, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers came in at the No. 2 spot behind J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans. Since the NFL Network introduced the Top 100 in 2011, the reigning MVP had always finished atop the list until this year. Rodgers, of course, took home that hardware back in January at the NFL Honors after a spectacular season in which he nearly led the Packers to their second Super Bowl in five years. During the regular season, Rodgers completed 341 passes on 520...

Favre: Rodgers and I 'get along fine'

 Photo/ Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers’ relationship improved after a chilly start, and their time onstage at the NFL Honors event in February 2013 was a key moment in Favres reconciliation with the team. GREEN BAY – They certainly weren’t BFFs when the kid got to town. And when things got ugly during the summer of 2008, it was Aaron Rodgers who bore the brunt of it – including being booed throughout the annual Family Night Scrimmage when his predecessor arrived on a jet plane and came straight to the stadium he’d helped build. (Or at least renovate.)And although Rodgers hasn’t...

Joe Flacco's doppleganger is thieving credit cards

To buy some McDonald's Mighty Wings? Somebody wearing Joe Flacco's face stole and swiped a credit card in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Obviously the near-identical twin has not seen Tom Wriggleworth's commercial with another elite quarterback, Packers Aaron Rodgers. This is the what the suspect looks like on the left below (photos via AACPD/USATSI). An AACPD officer should show the culprit the video of Wriggleworth when he's sitting behind bars. If you, or you know someone who could help assist with the impostor's arrest, from the Facebook page of the Anne Arundel County...

All-NFC North team: Offense (Part 1)

Put the best players in the NFC North on one team and what does it look like? Quarterback Starter: Aaron Rodgers I know, shocker. Aaron Rodgers is undoubtedly the best QB in the NFC North and arguably the best in the NFL. He is at the top of the proverbial totem pole, while Matthew Stafford and Teddy Bridgewater are several notches behind, and Jay Cutler has his face in the dirt. Bridgewater had a nice rookie campaign, but he's not quite proven yet, so Stafford is the easy choice here to back up Rodgers on this imaginary team. Reserve: Matthew Stafford Running Back Starters: Adrian Peterson...

2015 Packers 90-man roster ranking: How each writer voted

Yeah, Aaron Rodgers got a few No. 1 votes. The full results of Acme Packing Company's annual 90-man roster ranking have been revealed. Now, the time has come to see how each writer cast their vote. With certain players there was little disagreement. Our fearless leader Evan "Tex" Western threatened to fire every one of us if we didn't rank Aaron Rodgers No. 1. Thankfully, no pink flips were handed out. In other cases though, a particular player saw his ranking vary by as much as 19 spots (hey there, Mason). In the end, this amounts to little more than a fun exercise. Each of APC's writers...
