Green Bay Packers – Aaron Rodgers Forced to Change
Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce combined for 43 yards on 20 carries. Green Bay also held Baltimore’s leading receiver, Torrey Smith, to one reception. “Defense carried us pretty much most of the day,” said Packers coach Mike McCarthy, who had no immediate updates on the injured receivers. “Offensively, we had some adversity with the injuries. … It was a fun game to play in I’m sure. It was a great game to coach in.” Baltimore’s best first-half drive ended without points. After marching to the Green Bay 4-yard line midway through the second quarter, two carries put the ball on the 1.
Conflict is good, says Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
(Quarterbacks coach) Ben (McAdoo) and I have had conflict. Mike and I have had conflict. You have to have conflict if you want to grow. “It’s not always a confrontation. The conflict can be a disagreement about the plan, on what you want to do to attack ’em. I think there is a way to going about doing it that can get things done and 99% of that has been behind closed doors and that’s the way we want to do things around here in Green Bay.
Aaron Rodgers Contract: Packers’ QB Reportedly To Earn Highest Salary In NFL History
The Wisconsin Legislature designated Dec. 12, 2012, as “Aaron Rodgers Day,” and students and workers throughout the state were encouraged to celebrate by wearing his jersey. When he was shown on the scoreboard at the Milwaukee Bucks’ playoff game against the Miami Heat on Thursday, he got one of the biggest cheers of the night. Rodgers will be 36 when the deal ends. He said he thinks he has at least eight years left in his legs and his body, when asked if wondered if this would be his last contract. “A lot of times you don’t see a deal all the way through if you’re playing well. It’s just the nature of some of these contracts. That’s a long way off.
Defense, Rodgers spark Packers over Ravens
Randall Cobb took a rough hit to the knee from Matt Elam, which had Rodgers get up in his face , telling him what he thought of the hit. Without those two and a defense thats missing Clay Matthews, the Authentic Aaron Rodgers Youth Jersey Packers beat the Baltimore Ravens 19-17, their first away win of the season. But despite those missing players, the Packers are finding ways to adjust, which they failed to do in their losses to the Bengals and the 49ers. J ust as important was their ability to win a close game, which hasnt been their strong suit over the last couple of seasons. Rodgers did throw an interception, and did struggle to throw the ball when he had only Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley as his main targets. He was only 4-of-9 when targeting Nelson, including the interception he threw after the injuries; the first interception Rodgers has thrown when targeting Nelson this season. He threw the ball only 11 times in the second half, and nine of those throws were to either Nelson or Finley. Thats right the Packers went to their running game in the second half, getting a total of 120 yards from Eddie Lacy, running the ball 59% of the time, the second highest designed rush percentage for the Packers in a half in the last three seasons.
