So the preseason is here and every year the same derision slices through Packernation as people take sides on whether or not the games are important. Let me make it clear...THEY ARE!

If Aaron Rodgers Says So…And I Will Give you Four More Reasons

The next time you're sitting down to dunk that Bavarian creme filled long-john into your morning cuppa while you watch ESPN or NFL Network, take note of how often you hear any Packers news. If you hear any at all, it will probably be about Aaron Rodgers and hey, that makes sense. What doesn't make sense is how little we hear about the Packers wide receiver corps or our Rookie of the Year winning running back who is just now seeing the game "slow down" for him...pretty exciting. Now, I know that the National coverage is going to have less…
