Aaron Rodgers runs the show in Green Bay.While that might be obvious to even the most casual football fan [url=http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-randall-cobb-jersey]Cheap Randall Cobb Jersey[/url] , Rodgers has been everywhere this week or rather, his words have been. The Green Bay Packers quarterback gave his thoughts on a variety of topics this week from developing chemistry with his new star tight end to calling out his young wide receivers.What does all this tell you? Rodgers is fired up and the rest of league knows it should dread a mad Aaron Rodgers. The quarterback seems dialed in and ready to take no prisoners in his quest for a second Super Bowl ring.Will he be able to pull it off in the long season ahead?Time will tell, but you’d be foolish to bet against number 12.Rodgers is front and center in today’s cheese curds plus why unicorns may not be all they’re cracked up to be.Packers’ Aaron Rodgers sees benefits in playing Thursday in home exhibition—PackersNews.comIt’s hard to believe but Rodgers has not thrown a pass on the turf at Lambeau Field in over 300 days thanks to last season’s collarbone injury.Rodgers sees benefits to playing Thursday despite obvious risks and given how slow the offense has started the past few years, it’s really hard to argue against him.Aaron Rodgers raves about new TE Jimmy Graham—Packers WireMany fans are still bemoaning the loss of Jordy Nelson, but should Rodgers and Graham develop the same kind of connection then many will forget the loss of number 87. Judging by Rodgers’ comments and what’s been seen in practice so far, we could see something special between the tight end and quarterback. Aaron Rodgers on practice criticism: It’s not personal, it’s business—ESPNRodgers generated headlines by calling out his younger receivers’ “piss poor” effort in a previous practice and those youngsters replied with a solid overall showing in last week’s preseason win over the Tennessee Titans.Rodgers hopes the guys didn’t take it personally, and judging by the results it looks like they didn’t. I don’t know about you guys [url=http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-lane-taylor-jersey]http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-lane-taylor-jersey[/url] , but that sounds like just poor leadership to me. /sarcasmRoquan Smith agrees to $18.4M rookie deal with Bears—NFL.comCongrats to the Bears for doing what should have been done a long time ago.Sheriff deputies rescue group stranded on rainbow unicorn raft—UPIUnicorns are supposed to be magical right? Well, these officers are very talented for actually roping one.The Takeaway, Vikings vs. Packers: Dubious roughing penalty casts shadow over tie A single play rarely determines the outcome of a football game, but one can often come to define it. Such a moment occurred during the final two minutes of regulation during Sunday’s NFC North tilt between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers.On the Vikings’ final drive of regulation, pass rusher Clay Matthews hit Kirk Cousins just as the quarterback released the football. Moments later, the ball fell into the waiting arms for rookie corner Jaire Alexander for the game-sealing interception. Alexander performed his first Lambeau LeapHowever, while Alexander performed his first Lambeau Leap, the officials flagged Matthews for roughing the passer [url=http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-josh-jackson-jersey]Cheap Josh Jackson Jersey[/url] , a penalty which reversed the turnover and extended the Vikings’ drive. Eight plays later, Cousins threw his best pass of the afternoon to Adam Thielen, who corralled the ball for a touchdown. A successful extra point followed to tie the game at 29.According to the pool report, game official Tony Corrente said Matthews “hit the quarterback, he lifted him and drove him into the ground.” He further elaborated that his crew’s flag “had nothing to do with the rule of full body weight. It has nothing to do with helmet to helmet. [Matthews] picked the quarterback up and drove him into the ground.”Review of the play raises questions about Corrente’s entire explanation. Matthews did nothing to “lift” Cousins nor did the linebackers’ hit appear to apply any unnecessary force to “drive” him into the ground. Short of not hitting the quarterback at all, Matthews could have done nothing else to elude the flag and keep the Minnesota drive alive.Certainly, other factors helped determine the outcome of Sunday’s game; The Packers’ decision to run inside zone on third-and-2 in the red zone during their first drive of the fourth quarter; Lane Taylor’s holding penalty negating a Jimmy Graham touchdown; Mason Crosby’s missed field goal at the end of regulation; Rodgers fumble on the run-pass option in overtime. But those examples all fall under the category of player performance. The misapplied penalty fell outside of either team’s control and had at least as much impact on the final result.Ultimately, the NFL has muddied defenders’ understanding of the quarterback protections in a fashion quite similar to the old catch rule. Players don’t have a well-defined idea of what defines these illegal hits [url=http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-david-bakhtiari-jersey]David Bakhtiari Jersey[/url] , and that lack of clarity has affected the outcome of games.Packers can still separate from Vikings over coming weeksThough the outcome of Sunday’s game leaves the Packers and Vikings with identical win-loss records, the two teams could easily diverge in the coming weeks.Minnesota faces a tough upcoming schedule that includes back-to-back road games against the Los Angeles Rams and defending-champion Philadelphia Eagles. During the same stretch, Green Bay enjoys a favorable slate that features the hapless Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions. Myriad factors could recontextualize those contests. But as things stand presently, the Packers look like the better bet to lead the division when they hit their Week 7 bye.Building a lead in the division race over the next months is critical for the Packers. Week 12’s rematch with the Vikings takes place at the formidable U.S. Bank Stadium, giving an edge to the reigning NFC North champions. Green Bay needs to establish a cushion before then in case Minnesota wins the head-to-head tiebreaker.Aaron Jones set to return next weekThe Packers’ running game improved over Week 1’s showing against the Chicago Bears, but that doesn’t mean the backfield rotation hit all its marks.Jamaal Williams managed just 59 yards on 16 carries and couldn’t convert on a key third-and-2 during the fourth quarter. Ty Montgomery fared better statistically (31 yards on five carries), but his issues in pass protection and his ever-present risk of injury limit how much he can contribute in that role. As they did in the season opener, the Packers moved away from their ground attack early in the game [url=http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-jamaal-williams-jersey]Cheap Jamaal Williams Jersey[/url] , leaving Rodgers to attempt 20 more passes than the team’s final carry tally. That discrepancy can work in some situations, but the offense needs to find a better balance over the course of the season.Fortunately for Green Bay, second-year running back Aaron Jones returns from his two-game suspension just in time to give the unit a shot in the arm. Jones doesn’t have Williams’ gift for pass protection nor Montgomery’s skills as a pass catcher. However, Jones averaged nearly 2 yards more a carry than them in 2017 and, when healthy, provides the Packers with its most dangerous threat out of the backfield.Adding Jones won’t displace Williams and Montgomery entirely. Rather, the trio can work in concert to improve the ground game and keep each from taking on an overbearing workload. All three dealt with injuries last year that likely stemmed from overuse. Jones doesn’t need 300 carries to significantly impact Green Bay. His elusiveness and viability as a between-the-tackles runner add a dimension to the offense that can take pressure off the still-ailing Rodgers and the passing attack.
