Aaron Rodgers backs young girl’s campaign to raise awareness of childhood cancer

Posted by Duke Bobber on September 22, 2014 – 9:42 am

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has lent his support to the “Gold in September” campaign. The mission of “Gold in September,” a month in which people are encouraged to wear gold, is to raise awareness and inspire action for childhood cancer initiatives. Gold is the official color for pediatric cancer awareness month, September.

The campaign was started by Annie Bartosz, an 11-year-old from Hartland whose twin brother Jack lost his fight with cancer two years ago. Rodgers had become close with Jack after meeting through the MACC Fund, a Midwest-based charity dedicated to funding childhood cancer and related blood disorder research.

Rodgers surprised Bartosz by dropping in prior to a video interview she was about to shoot. The two went door to door near Bartosz’s home to explain “Gold in September” to neighbors.

Rodgers-to-Cobb wins Never Say Never Moment of Year

Posted by Mike Spofford on February 1, 2014 – 6:33 pm

140201-never-say-never-600

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ 48-yard TD pass to WR Randall Cobb on fourth-and-8 in the final minute of the Week 17 showdown at Soldier Field won the online voting for the NFL’s Never Say Never Moment of the Year.

The award was announced on Saturday night at the third annual “NFL Honors” show in New York City.

The touchdown, with 38 seconds left in the game, gave the Packers a 33-28 victory over the Bears for their third straight NFC North title. The division crown and an NFC playoff spot were on the line in the game.

The Packers trailed, 28-27, when they took possession on their own 13-yard line with 6:24 left. Converting a pair of fourth downs on a short run by FB John Kuhn and a pass to WR Jordy Nelson, the Packers faced another fourth down at the Chicago 48-yard line.

Rodgers, playing in his first game back from a broken collarbone that sidelined him for seven contests, and Cobb, also in his first game back from a leg injury that cost him 10 games, hooked up for the game-winner.

The Bears brought a blitz, Kuhn threw a key block on Chicago DE Julius Peppers that allowed Rodgers to get out of the pocket, and Cobb was running free down the field waving his hand. Rodgers’ pass settled into his arms at the 10-yard line and he dove over the goal line, setting off a wild celebration on the field and on the Packers sideline.

Vote for Rodgers-to-Cobb for Never Say Never Moment of Year

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 20, 2014 – 3:00 pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ 48-yard TD pass to WR Randall Cobb on fourth down with 38 seconds left in Chicago is one of the finalists for the NFL’s Never Say Never Moment of the Year.

The play was just voted the winner of the Never Say Never Moment of the Week for Week 17.

The other finalists are as follows:

Week 5 – Manning, Thomas, Broncos outlast Cowboys in thrilling finish

Week 10 – Newton, Kuechly, Panthers rally to prevail in defensive struggle

Week 12 – Brady, Patriots overcome 24-point deficit, win in OT

Week 14 – Ravens survive frantic final minutes vs. Vikings

Voting will be open through Thursday, Jan. 23. Vote by clicking here.

The winner will be announced at the third annual “NFL Honors” show, a two-hour prime-time special on FOX on Feb. 1, the night before Super Bowl XLVIII.

Here is the information on each nominee, as supplied by the NFL through a press release:

Wk 5: Manning, Thomas, Broncos outlast Cowboys in thrilling finish:

Peyton Manning helped the Denver Broncos overcome a 14-0 deficit in the first quarter, and again by a touchdown in the fourth quarter, to earn a thrilling 51-48 win on the road against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. In the game, Manning threw four touchdown passes, two to wide receiver Julius Thomas, and added another on a run. During the record-setting game, the Broncos and Cowboys combined for 1,039 yards of total offense which is tied for the second-highest scoring game since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Linebacker Danny Trevathan’s interception of a Tony Romo pass set up Matt Prater’s game-winning field goal and assured that the Broncos would remain unbeaten.

Wk 10: Panthers rally to prevail in defensive struggle:

Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers survived a defensive struggle in San Francisco to collect their fifth consecutive win. The Panthers rallied from nine down to earn a huge 10-9 road win against the San Francisco 49ers. Running back DeAngelo Williams’ touchdown brought Carolina to within 9-7 of San Francisco, and Graham Gano’s 53-yard field goal in the fourth quarter put the Panthers ahead. However, it was the stingy Panthers defense led by linebacker Luke Kuechly, who finished the game with 11 tackles and a sack, that made sure the narrow one-point lead held up. The Panthers twice shut down Colin Kaepernick on last-ditch, late-game drives, including an interception from Drayton Florence to seal the win.

Wk 12: Brady, Patriots overcome 24-point deficit, win in OT:

Down 24-0 at halftime, quarterback Tom Brady guided a second-half comeback that forced overtime, where the New England Patriots eventually won, 34-31. The Patriots lost fumbles on their first three possessions as the Broncos built a 24-0 lead in the first half. However, the Patriots rallied, scoring on their first five possessions of the second half to erase the deficit. After Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw a touchdown pass to receiver Demaryius Thomas late in the fourth quarter to tie the score and ultimately force overtime, the Patriots took advantage of a fortunate bounce of a punt that hit a Broncos player and was recovered by Nate Ebner at the Broncos’ 13-yard line. Kicker Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31-yard field goal to give the Patriots a 34-31 overtime win.

Wk 14: Ravens survive frantic final minutes vs. Vikings:

Quarterback Joe Flacco threw a touchdown pass to rookie receiver Marlon Brown with four seconds left to cap a frenzied final two minutes and lift the Baltimore Ravens to a thrilling 29-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Despite playing in a snowstorm, the Ravens and Vikings combined for five touchdowns in the game’s final 125 seconds. The Flacco-to-Brown score finished a five-play, 80-yard drive that eclipsed all but four of the game’s final 45 seconds. The Ravens’ rally also included a 77-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Jacoby Jones.

Wk 17: Rodgers’ fourth-down TD puts Packers in playoffs:

Facing a fourth-and-8 at the Chicago Bears’ 48-yard line with 38 seconds remaining, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hit receiver Randall Cobb for a 48-yard touchdown play that helped the Packers capture the NFC North crown. Rodgers had missed seven games with a broken collarbone and Cobb had missed the previous 10 games with a knee injury.

Packers elect six playoff captains

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 1, 2014 – 4:50 pm

The Packers have voted for and selected their captains for the 2013 postseason.

Unlike some teams, Green Bay doesn’t have season-long captains but chooses captains during the regular season on a weekly basis to go out for the coin toss. For the postseason, these six players will serve as captains and wear a “C” patch on their jerseys for as long as the Packers season continues.

They are QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson on offense, LB A.J. Hawk and S Morgan Burnett on defense, and K Mason Crosby and CB Jarrett Bush on special teams.

This is the first time for Nelson and Burnett to be chosen as playoff captains. Rodgers leads the way with five selections now, followed by Bush with four, and Hawk and Crosby with three apiece.

Nelson has set career highs this season in both receptions (85) and receiving yards (1,314). Hawk led the team in tackles with 153, the seventh time in eight seasons he has either finished first or second on the team in that category. Hawk also posted a career-high five sacks.

Burnett finished second on the team with 104 tackles despite missing the first three games due to injury. Bush had seven tackles and one forced fumble on the coverage units, while Crosby posted the highest field-goal percentage of his seven-year career at 89.1 percent, making 33 of 37 field goals.
