    Aaron Rogers

    Very nice story and wanted to share with all... This is written by a sports anchor from Fox 6 in Milwaukee . "Save Me a Spot" This job affords me some incredible opportunities. Being a member of the FOX 6 Sports team means I've been able to witness and report on events and people that many can only admire from a distance. I never take these situations for granted and sincerely appreciate being involved in whatever capacity each permits. Monday marked just the most recent case as I had the unparalleled privilege to be a part of Aaron Rodgers charity event to benefit the MACC Fund, a charity towards eradicating childhood cancer and blood disorders. Scattered throughout the crowd of rabid Packers aficionados, were the people who I consider the event's real MVPs. They are the families who've been forced to deal with one of life's toughest sentences – the loss of a child. Those who sprung for the tickets were not disappointed. In a world where many athletes regurgitate canned and rehearsed responses, the Packers quarterback was refreshingly candid. Aaron addressed a number of topics with in-depth, honest reaction - even some that if reprinted and mass distributed might raise some eyebrows. Aaron stressed the importance of availability and accountability. In his opinion, it is a player's responsibility to attend all of the team activities as they are all intended to better the team as a whole. And then, similarly, he addressed the importance of taking the heat/criticism when one falls short of expectations and duties. He is never nervous to take the field. Aaron is supremely confident in the preparation he's put in during the week leading up to Sunday's match up. The way the 2009 season ended was disappointing but his self-confidence was not affected by the outcome. One of the toughest realizations was that that combination of players would never take the field together again. He likened the team to a family and admitted that conflict can and does occasionally exist but they try to handle such situations with maturity and civility. He talked music and his love for tunes at a young age revealing that his mom used to sing and play lullabies and country music when he was a child. Aaron's record label Suspended Sunrise is a product of this passion but also a contingency plan for life after football. His favorite song is Ben Harper's 'Forever' and he's envious of John Mayer's guitar skills though not his tabloid reputation. He appreciated my affinity for Keith Urban but gave the audience a thumbs-down when I mentioned fellow country crooner Kenny Chesney. His favorite book is The Bible and he tries to read it every day not just when life's challenges and struggles surface. His favorite movie is The Princess Bride which he admits he's caught flack for but says he and his childhood friends can recite every line from the film and it is simply a great story. Rodgers' answers to questions on this night were certainly admirable. And I honestly didn't think I could respect Aaron more. But I was wrong. My friend, the father of that young girl who passed, was there that night. He was one of several attendees brought up on stage where he caught a football thrown by the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. He asked Aaron to sign the football he'd caught. He wondered if he'd make it out to his daughter. It isn't shocking that Rodgers obliged. What caught me off guard was the dedication he made. It wasn't until after Aaron left that I first saw the autograph... and the simple yet sweet message that brought tears to this father's eyes: "To Cheri the angel. Save me a spot. - Aaron Rodgers" I hope that Packers fans realize how lucky they are to have such an upstanding young man leading their team on the field every weekend. I hope they appreciate the challenges that were thrust upon him and acknowledge the maturity with which he handled them. I hope they stand behind the kid and respect him not only for his incredible talent but for his intelligence and honesty, poise and compassion. My job has afforded me the chance to watch Aaron Rodgers play football for the last few seasons. But I am truly thankful for the opportunity to see the other side of this impressive young man. And pass on some of what I witnessed to you.

    Packers V Cards

    Zamboni Whenever I hop on here and read your posts you just make me laugh. Look at the stats before you start talking out of your a$$ because your mouth knows better. If you're referring to the game on Sunday, the Packers were down by 21 points. Would you think they would run the ball? get up when the alarm goes off... Stats for the regular season. Aaron Rodgers 541 attempts Brett Favre 531 attempts Adrian Peterson 314 attempts 1383 yards Ryan Grant 282 attempts 1253 yards

    Viking players at it again...

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP)—Minnesota Vikings backup linebacker Erin Henderson(notes) was suspended for four games Tuesday for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. The suspension covers Minnesota’s final three regular-season games and first playoff game. The NFL does not specify the substances for which players test positive. Is it just me or are Viking players in the news every week for screwing up?

    I think that photo was taken in the Metrodome so it can't be a Packer fan, the sun shines bright in there.

    Vick to the Packers?

    I think you're confused, it's the Vikings looking for a starting Q-Back! Rogers has no worries about playing every week. The guy is going to be much better than Favre, maybe already is!
