The Packers’ playoff captains, elected by members of the team, are QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson on offense, LB Julius Peppers and S Morgan Burnett on defense, and WR Randall Cobb and DB Jarrett Bush on special teams. The team voted on the playoff captains prior to Week 16’s game in Tampa. Normally, the Packers elect three captains each week and then elect six playoff captains once the postseason begins. The change was designed to send a message of focus and urgency following the tough loss in Buffalo.

News now! Aaron Rodgers: ‘We’re in a good frame of mind’

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 16, 2015 – 1:27 pm

150116-news-now-rodgers-300GREEN BAY — Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on Friday the Packers are a “loose and confident bunch” as they finish their preparations to head to Seattle for the NFC Championship.

“We’re in a good frame of mind,” Rodgers said in his final address to the media prior to Sunday’s game, sporting a Butte College football sweatshirt and a Pleasant Valley High School baseball cap, representing two of his key roots. “Fridays are relaxing days for our bodies physically. We have a re-gen program to get our bodies back. A heavy mental day. Everybody is finishing up and getting ready to take off.”

Rodgers expects to have to deal with his calf injury the same this week as he did last week. He said it feels pretty good now but he knows he’s going to be in pain during the game.

“It was painful the entire game (against the Cowboys),” he said. “It’s something I knew was going to have to deal with during the week. In warmups, nothing really loosened up. It was just dealing with the pain, pain management and being smart about it.”

As for comments from Seattle defenders on Thursday that they weren’t “buying” that Rodgers was actually hurt?

“Between them and (ESPN’s) Adam Schefter, I don’t know if I need to say anything about my calf,” Rodgers said. “Those are all the updates you need.”

The topic of Charles Woodson’s famous speech following the 2010 NFC Championship in Chicago came up, and Rodgers complimented Woodson on his ability to focus the team at key moments. He said several players have taken their turn doing so this year, but it hasn’t just been the playoff captains. He also mentioned right guard T.J. Lang as a very vocal leader of the team, along with fellow guard Josh Sitton.

It will be Julius Peppers’ turn to address the team before Sunday’s game, and Rodgers said he’s fine with not being the final pep talk man.

“I’m not a big rah-rah guy,” he said. “I pick and choose my spots, and I’ll bring my passion on the field.”

Rodgers made no secret of his desire to take advantage of this shot at another Super Bowl, calling this the time “you cement your legacy” as he proceeds into the second half of his career. That decorated QB career will continue with Head Coach Mike McCarthy and GM Ted Thompson under contract.

“You look at the things we did this fall. We re-signed Mike, we re-signed Ted,” he said. “We’re set up to do something special, and it would be great to add a couple more trophies.”

News now! Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy ‘ready to play’

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on January 16, 2015 – 11:35 am

150116-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY–Aaron Rodgers was limited in practice on Friday, but he was listed as “probable” on the Packers’ injury report and Coach Mike McCarthy indicated Rodgers would be under center on Sunday in Seattle.

“Aaron’s getting ready to play. Looks good. Everything is on schedule,” McCarthy said of Rodgers and his calf injury. “It’ll be important to get on the field in pregame and get comfortable.”

Running back Eddie Lacy joined the injury report on Thursday due to a sore knee, and Lacy was limited in practice on Friday, but he’s also listed as “probable” and McCarthy said Lacy will “be ready to play” on Sunday in the NFC title game.

News now! Eddie Lacy added to injury report with sore knee

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 15, 2015 – 1:49 pm

150115-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY — The Packers have added RB Eddie Lacy to the injury report with a knee injury and he was limited in practice on Thursday.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy did not seem to have any concern about Lacy’s availability for Sunday’s NFC title game, however.

“Eddie Lacy’s knee is sore. I pulled him in about the middle of practice,” McCarthy said. “I think Eddie will be ready to go on Sunday. The coach is nervous.”

QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) remained a limited participant in practice, as expected. Thursday’s practice was in pads, just as last week’s Thursday workout was.

“Aaron Rodgers participated in the second part of practice, went through pass under pressure and went through two team periods,” McCarthy said. “He’s getting ready to play.”

The Packers are also getting ready to travel to Seattle on Friday, one day earlier than normal for a road trip. The team will practice at an indoor facility to be determined on Saturday.

McCarthy said a few things from that Saturday practice were moved to Thursday because he didn’t think the team would be able to do them on the road.

“It’ll be as close as we can get to a normal Saturday practice,” McCarthy said.

Packers.com will have more following locker room interviews.

News now! Aaron Rodgers says he’s ‘about the same’

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on January 14, 2015 – 4:44 pm

150114-rodgers-seahawks-presser-300GREEN BAY—Aaron Rodgers characterized the status of his leg injury as being “about the same as last week.” Rodgers offered that assessment during a press conference at Lambeau Field on Wednesday, and added that he feels “pretty similar” to how he felt a week ago.

Considering his performance in a come-from-behind, 26-21 win over the Cowboys on Sunday, no news might be good news.

“It’s just a matter of playing within your limits. I’ve been pretty smart about it. I haven’t caused a lot of extra damage,” Rodgers said when asked to give his thoughts on playing with a left calf injury that, at times, has effectively made him a one-legged quarterback. It was on one leg that he threw his first touchdown pass in the win over the Cowboys.

Rodgers was interviewed by a large contingent of reporters, many of them of national brand, and one of the prominent questions he was asked involved the failure to throw at Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in the Week 1 game between the two teams.

“I plan to throw it to the open guy. That’s the way I’ve played for a number of years. I’ll go through my progressions and play the way I’ve always played,” he said.

“It’s important to throw it to the right and to the left a little,” he added when pressed further on the subject.

Aaron Rodgers wins first league MVP award of 2014

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 14, 2015 – 12:05 pm

GREEN BAY — Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was named the league’s MVP by the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) on Wednesday, the first league MVP award announced for the 2014 season.

Rodgers finished the regular season with 341 completions in 520 attempts for 4,381 yards with 38 touchdowns and just five interceptions for a 112.2 passer rating.

He had the fewest interceptions in the league while ranking second in passer rating and third in TD passes. He led the Packers to a 12-4 regular-season record as Green Bay captured its fourth straight NFC North title and earned a first-round playoff bye with the No. 2 seed in the NFC.

The PFWA award could potentially be a precursor to the Associated Press NFL MVP award, recognized as the league’s official award, which Rodgers won in 2011. It will be announced during the annual NFL Honors show on Jan. 31, the night before Super Bowl XLIX.

Earlier this week, Rodgers was named to PFWA’s All-NFL team. PFWA also selected Rodgers, WR Jordy Nelson and G Josh Sitton for its All-NFC team, while C Corey Linsley and S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix were named to PFWA’s All-Rookie team.

The St. Louis Rams led the way with three All-Rookie selections, including DT Aaron Donald, who was named PFWA’s Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was named both Rookie of the Year and Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Other NFC North selections included Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater on offense, Chicago CB Kyle Fuller on defense and Chicago P Pat O’Donnell on special teams.
