Green Bay Packers fans were stunned when the team used its first round 2020 NFL draft pick on Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. Wait...what? The team with Aaron Rodgers, the greatest quarterback in Green Bay's glorious history, opts not to draft an excellent receiver to complement its superstar leader? Yeppers. Packers management decided to prepare for the eventual exit of 37-year-old Rodgers, mindful of age, money, and forward momentum. So Jordan Love is now on the sideline witnessing Rodgers in perhaps his greatest season ever. On Sunday Night Football last night, Rodgers was touted by announcers Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth as the leading MVP candidate again. So what's up with Aaron? Seeing the Packers use their primary draft pick for a young quarterback

The Dallas Cowboys were once known as America's team but their 1990s success has settled into consistently average performances. TV ratings get a bump whenever the Cowboys or Packers are featured, and both teams have great support on road games. So what happened this season when the two powerhouse franchises met? You already know that the Cowboys just lost again to the Green Bay Packers, the REAL America's team. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' record is 7-2 versus the Dallas Cowboys, including multiple wins in Dallas. Add in another Aaron (Jones) and the Cowboys are helpless against the Double A Train. Early season fears that Rodgers was not seeing eye-to-eye with first year Packers coach Matt LaFleur have been put to rest. Rodgers clearly
Packers practices are underway. This week features a pair of practices with the Houston Texans visiting Wisconsin. Former Kentucky Wildcat Lonnie Johnson Jr. was ejected by his Texans coach for taking an unwarranted shot at Packers tight end Jace Sternberger. Johnson apparently ignored the no-hitting rule by jacking Sternberger after he caught a pass. Johnson then taunted Sternberger as he lay on the field. Packers players were not pleased. Johnson later tweeted that he's "not trying to hurt nobody." Johnson's UK degree was not in English. Not trying to hurt nobody just wanna be great 🙏🏾‼️ https://t.co/tv734EE9TH— Lonnie Johnson jr.

Aaron and Richard, both Rodgers, won the ESPY for Play of the Year for their incredible Hail Mary pass and catch after the play clock expired The Packers stunned the Detroit Lions. Sweet.
Terry & Kristen illustrate a gracious greeting between NFL rivals. "Hello, friend. I hope my team scores more points than yours." "Oh, I'm certain that my team will prevail." "Bye bye now, friend!" Meanwhile, Chicago Bears fans don't mind desecrating the name of their only coach who led the team to a Super Bowl victory. Mike Ditka is no doubt delighted that his family honor is equated with a fat man's small penis.
