Divisional weekend is here and Packernation will be watching. The late game between the Carolina Panthers and the Seattle Seahawks will provide the possibility of another game at Lambeau if the Packers can seal the deal against the Cowboys. The 4:30 game, on the other hand, is an AFC contest but will highlight whether or not the Patriots can be stopped at home. Continue reading
With a great divisional battle coming up, yesterday I was reminded that there are some in Packernation fighting a bigger battle. That is why we do stories on our military friends who put themselves in harms way for us every day. Today we have the story of a family man who is in a battle for his life. Packernation…please send Ron Nelson your warmest wishes! I will let his son, Ryan, tell the story: Continue reading
With 21 players in the NFL Hall of Fame, the Packers are second, trailing the Chicago Bears who have 26. The list of finalists for the NFL Hall of Fame was announced on NFL Network last night and a couple of names that are dear to Packers fans were found there. Neither was a Packers player but congratulations are in order nonetheless. Continue reading
So everybody in Packernation has been wondering today…”Will Aaron Rodgers practice.” Well the jury is in and you may be surprised. From the second Aaron pulled up on the touchdown pass to Randall Cobb and the gutsy performance that followed, we’ve wanted to know at what price the Lions win came.
Well today for the first time since that game, Aaron practiced! Not only that, he took 50%-60% of the snaps during this practice. This is great news for Packers fans (such as myself) who thought he might be limited for the Cowboys game. He is still listed as limited, but if evaluation tomorrow goes well that may change to probable. This is great news!
If Aaron Rodgers has all of his mobility and can move without endangering that calf muscle, the threat to the Cowboys increases. How many times have we seen Aaron scramble for 8+ yards and a first down when the opposing defense has the receivers locked up. And how accurate is this guy on the run? It is phenomenal to watch him go to work on a rollout.
But what say you Packernation? This good news is…well, GREAT NEWS!
Aaron Rodgers does a LOT of great things. This cannot be overstated. He may practice today but in the upcoming game against the Cowboys, he may be limited. This big question mark is one that Packers fans would like to have answered…now! But I don’t think it will entirely be answered until we see how Aaron fares against the Cowboys on Sunday. But that question, the question of mobility, brings up another question. One that I would LOVE to hear Packernation comment on. Continue reading
