A Tale of Two Quarterbacks

Today's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has an article about Packers backup QB Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre. Or, more precisely, Rodgers' take on Brett Favre. Rodgers states that he's had the best QB coach anyone could ever have...and that's Brett Favre. Nothing overly revealing...other than maybe what Rodgers cites as Brett's apparently omnipresent "body sounds."

Hey, when you're playing the AZ Cardinals perhaps "body sounds" isn't a bad metaphor.

Jennings Likely Out Sunday

Although the ankle injury to rookie WR Greg Jennings apparently isn't as bad as it could have been, indicators are that he probably won't play Sunday. He will have a pre-game workout on Sunday to see if he can play. But coaches are also reluctant to rush him back too quickly and risk more severe injury and down time. So look for veteran Donald Drive to be paired with the other three rookie wideouts as the receiving corps for this game. That likely means double-team coverage for Driver, and the need for the rookies to make plays. They did what they needed to do last week. That success and a full week of practice...and a home crowd...should make it click.
