Cheese Curds Womens Antonio Morrison Jersey , 8/8: Looking back at Brett Favre’s exit from the Packers I was in Green Bay just days before Brett Favre was traded in 2008.Training camp is always a circus, but this was another level entirely. At least one person asked me to sign a petition demanding Favre be immediately reinstalled as the starter. People carried protest signs in the streets outside the practice field. I got a picture with one that read “Brett Favre is Wisconsin family. Ted Thompson is Forrest Gump’s brother.”Ten years later, it’s tempting to look back on that summer as much ado about nothing. With a Super Bowl title and two MVP awards under his belt, it’s easy to see that Aaron Rodgers was the right choice. Favre’s one-season renaissance in Minnesota notwithstanding, the Packers turned out fine in the end. Maybe that’s a lesson to remember the next time the Packers face a situation that seems all-consuming for the moment.Brett the Jet: The inside story of his NY trade, 10 years ago | ESPNRich Cimini goes inside the Favre trade from the New York Jets’ perspective, dishing a few details that haven’t been covered in-depth before. For example: New York Jets coach Eric Mangini promised to name his third son after Favre if the quarterback agreed to come to New York. True to his word, his third son Zack Brett Mangini was born on Favre’s 39th birthday. Take a look back at the strange moment the Brett Favre era officially ended in Green Bay | Packers NewsFor a more Packers-centric look at the situation, here’s a roundup of the local coverage of the Favre trade.We Made Aaron Rodgers NFL Commissioner for a Day | The RingerAaron Rodgers weighs in on everything NFL, touching on the salary cap, National Anthem protests Womens Corey Linsley Jersey , and how he’d handle player celebrations.Packers open to ‘conversations’ about trading for Khalil Mack | Packers WireFile this under “probably not going to happen but interesting to think about.” According to GM Brian Gutekunst, the Packers are at least open to talking about trading for All-Pro edge rusher Khalil Mack.Packers Game Balls: Jimmy Graham arrives, JK Scott bombs away against Vikings The Green Bay Packers may have tied the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Lambeau Field, but they should have won the contest, clearly playing well enough to do so against a team that made it to the NFC Championship a year ago. The Packers took a double-digit lead into the fourth quarter despite a quarterback who was operating on one healthy leg and although some questionable officiating helped to cost them a win, there are plenty of individual players who deserve praise for their efforts on Sunday.Let’s take a look at a few players not named Aaron Rodgers who are worthy of recognition for how they played on Sunday.TE Jimmy GrahamAfter a quiet week one, Graham bounced back in week two. He caught six passes from Aaron Rodgers, turning them into 95 yards. Perhaps his biggest play came near the end of regulation, when he got the Packers into range for a potential game-winning field goal that Mason Crosby initially appeared to make before the Vikings took a timeout.Reports of Graham’s demise were premature, however. He made a few big plays, both getting wide open on occasion and making tough catches in traffic Womens Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey , and showed why the Packers brought him in.WR Geronimo AllisonAllison made the play of the first half, when he knifed through the Vikings’ line on a punt and made a full extension, blocking the punt and sending the ball straight up in the air. Josh Jackson may have hauled in the football for a touchdown, but Allison was responsible for that play.On offense, Allison made a handful of big catches once again, with six grabs for 64 yards. It was a complete performance for the third-year wideout, who continues to justify the Packers’ faith in him as their third wide receiver.DT Kenny ClarkClark was a beast for much of the game, finishing with four total tackles and a sack. While Mike Daniels also had a solid performance, Clark was constantly collapsing the pocket, eating up blockers in the run game, and even knocking down a pass at the line of scrimmage.CB Jaire AlexanderEven though the Packers allowed Kirk Cousins to pass for over 400 yards Womens Kentrell Brice Jersey , Alexander largely had a very good day his first time out against Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. He totaled six solo tackles and one assist, coming up short to only Blake Martinez in solo and total tackles for the team. Alexander also made a pair of big plays on the Vikings’ opening drive, forcing the punt that Allison blocked; one was blowing up a screen pass to Diggs on first and 20 and the other was a joint sack with Reggie Gilbert on third down.Yes, Alexander was in coverage on Thielen on the touchdown that led to the Vikings tying the game, but he was in great position and only a perfect throw from Cousins fit the ball in. Furthermore, he should have sealed a victory with an interception on Cousins’ deep ball before that touchdown, tracking it over his shoulder in the air and making an impressive pick only to see it wiped out by a terrible roughing the passer call against Clay Matthews.The rookie had several good plays to build on once again and is showing why he was a first-round draft pick.P JK ScottHere were Scott’s punts on the day:44 yards, fair catch at the Vikings’ 863 yards, fair catch at the Vikings’ 1959 yards, returned for 13 yards (net of 46)46 yards, downed by Packers at Vikings’ 2947 yards Youth Josh Jackson Jersey , touchback (net of 27)That’s an average of 51.8 yards per punt gross and 45.2 net, with two punts inside the 20. That’s a heck of a day for anyone, let alone a rookie in his second NFL game.Honorable Mention: K Mason CrosbyCrosby only gets left off the main list because of his missed 52-yard field goal at the end of regulation. He went 5-for-6 on field goals, hitting multiple kicks from 40-plus and hitting his first attempt at that 52-yarder, which was erased by a Vikings timeout. Indeed, Crosby’s successful conversions were a big reason why the Packers held the lead late into the game.And think about it — if the Packers had gotten him one more attempt to win the game in overtime, do you think he would have missed it? I would have been betting on Crosby all the way.
