Packers News 10/6/11
Al: Jordy Nelson was shown a little Packers love this week, as Ted Thompson wrapped up the blossoming wide receiver for another 3 years. Nelson’s contract will be worth 13.2 million over 4 years. Nelson’s comments were fantastic, “I think some people are in this league to get the money, and are excited about it. For myself, I love winning. I don’t know why you would want to leave a team like this, an organization like this.”
Jayme: Great that he feels that way and it would be hard not to when your quarterback is Aaron Rodgers, who was honored as NFC offensive player of the week for the second time in 4 games. Rodgers won the award for his record-setting performance, when he became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 400 yards, throw four touchdown passes and run for two all in the same game.
Al: Speaking of Packers quarterbacks, Good ol’ Brett Lorenzo Favre was at it again, flapping his gums in his inimitable “can’t help myself” way. Favre let out a series of backhanded compliments, say Rodgers “just kind of fell into a good situation” and that he was surprised that Rodgers “didn’t do it sooner.” Rodgers took the high road for the umpteenth when asked about it by reporters.
