A roundup of what's happening on the Green Bay Packers beat.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said earlier this week that he had no plans to watch the PBS special "League of Denial" — a documentary on the NFL's concussion issues — that aired Tuesday night.

Rodgers said he spends Tuesday's watching film of the upcoming opponent.

But he has made his stance known before about concussions, and he reiterated that during his weekly session with reporters in front of his locker on Wednesday.


Aaron has not had concussion since they changed his helmet to some special one. Why not give every player that kind of helmet and be done with it?

I recall a high school coach was asking about the new one fo r his kids and GBP wouldn't talk about it because it was some kind of secret.

Absolutely spot on.. it is a violent game.. I knew the risks almost 30 years ago when I started to play ball. Looking to place the blame anywhere else for your decision is ridiculous.

Now, would coaches prompt you to return with playing time as the carrot.. possibly.

5. Are you concerned about your future health given all the information coming out about the effect of concussions?

RODGERS: "I know the risk that I'm taking playing this game. I love this game. I've had a couple concussions. I think the equipment we're using is pretty cutting edge, and I'm confident in the helmet I'm wearing, the pads I'm wearing, and my ability and wherewithal to get down when I need to. But concussions are part of our game, they have been for a long time. They're talked about more because they're diagnosed and talked about, obviously, more than they were 20 years ago. So, it's part of the game, but I think the league is doing as much as they can from an equipment standpoint to make us safer."

NFL players can choose any helmet they want. Rodgers just switched from a Riddell to Schutt. I believe the reason they wouldn't talk about what helmet he switched to is because Riddell is the Official Helmet of the NFL, and there were legal issues. I know they had to remove the Schutt name from being displayed on the helmet.

hardrocker950 (44m) : But I put it mostlt on the offense and poor playcalling
hardrocker950 (44m) : I have seen the defense take a lot of flak over the loss..
Cheesey (1h) : Rodgers would have hit open guys. The game plan wouldn't have killed us. Less 3 and outs, and maybe some scores.
beast (2h) : Rodgers wouldn't of abandon attepting to get the ball to Nelson and Adams.
Zero2Cool (2h) : Rodgers with that game plan would have came up short too.
beast (3h) : Yeah the Packers defense got wore out... being on the field so long. Giving longer breathers than 3&out would of helped a lot IMO.
Cheesey (4h) : There wouldn't have been so many 3 and outs, thus keeping our D off the field.
Cheesey (4h) : True, but with the low score we would have had a chance with Rodgers behind center.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Brees is a damn good QB, not giving Capers a pass, not even close.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Saints kicked Packers ass with Rodgers too.
Cheesey (5h) : That's just it. Rodgers needs a DEFENSE as well. And without him, there is NO chance.
beast (6h) : Just fire everyone! Rodgers can do it without them! Hell trade for the healthy Browns players!
Cheesey (8h) : Capers needs to GO. So do players that can't cut it.
Zero2Cool (9h) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (9h) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (9h) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (9h) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (9h) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (10h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (10h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
Zero2Cool (10h) : clean?
