Aaron Rodgers finally realizes his season is over and it was a dud

It’s all starting to sink in now for Aaron Rodgers.

Injured New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a lot going on over this first weekend in December. He turned 40 on Saturday, then stood on the sideline Sunday and watched the Jets lose to the Atlanta Falcons while scoring eight points. That could be when it dawned on Mr. Rodgers that suiting up again this year was highly unlikely. Some called Rodgers delusional from the start, thinking he’d play again this season. It seems that bubble finally burst during his birthday weekend. - Criss Partee Read More

NFL quarterbacks are becoming an endangered species

Trevor Lawrence is helped off the field Monday night.

It is hard enough to find a starting-caliber NFL quarterback. There certainly are not 32 in the league right now. Finding one in the draft is like discovering that your grandma’s furniture is a valuable antique. - Stephen Knox Read More

Green Bay has this winning-franchise thing down to a science

Jordan Love is hitting his stride.

The Green Bay Packers are one of the handful of NFL franchises that has done precious little losing since the turn of the millennium. Even in the decade prior to Y2K, they experienced sustained success. The Packers seem to have a firm grasp on NFL team building, including the most important part — quarterback. For all of Jordan Love’s ups and downs during the 2023 season, a Week 13 win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football thrust the Packers into the final NFC Playoff spot. - Stephen Knox Read More
