  3. Aaron Rodgers: Greatest QB in Packers historyRead the original story w/Photo

    1 hr ago | LombardiAve

    Simply how much ability did that quarterback possess combined with his leadership, while what was he able to accomplish during his career? As part of our three-part series I was given the task of arguing for Aaron Rodgers as the greatest quarterback in Green Bay Packers franchise history, but with my own criteria above, I've never thought of Rodgers as the greatest quarterback in franchise history, at least not yet. From a legacy standpoint, he has work to do to surpass names like Bart Starr and Brett Favre for that accolade, and even when you combine leadership with what he's accomplished and his talent, I still feel Rodgers falls a bit short.

  14. The Myth of the "Stud" Wide ReceiverRead the original story w/Photo

    6 hrs ago | Field Gulls

    Every offseason, we hear about teams searching for, or somehow needing, the "stud" wide receiver, a "go up and get it" guy who is tall, strong, and nearly impossible to defend. The question, however, is this: does having a stud wide receiver on one's team help the team at all?
