He simply wanted to be paid like one of the best players in the game. They reached the playoffs for eight straight seasons before going 7-9 last season, when Rodgers missed nine games because of a broken collarbone. It was time to slam the panic button at Lambeau Field.
Despite a gloomy outlook at the time of his injury, Rodgers came back into the game on the Packers' first drive of the second half.
"He's a really vibrant guy", Staley said. Rodgers walked off on his own power but eventually was carted to the locker room.
Rodgers injured his knee midway through the second quarter after going down on a sack.

I'm predicting an overtime game and the new kicker for the Cowboys, Brett Maher, with the game-winner, 23-20 Dallas over Carolina. He was at the stadium nearly every day, watching film and talking to coaches and players to try and get better.
That's an absolutely foolish stance if we've ever seen one. You never feel like that team's out of game when he's at quarterback. Once they traded him to Chicago, he signed a record-breaking, six-year, $141 million contract extension, with $90 million in guaranteed money and $60 million at signing. But safety Jayron Kearse would have a role. But having to settle for field goals on three of four red-zone possessions ultimately cost them the opportunity to put the game away. "He actually nearly threw an interception and (Bears safety Kyle Fuller) dropped it, and immediately after that point it was like, 'Yeah, (the Bears are) going to lose". Most importantly it appears Rodgers trusts him enough for him to start on the outside opposite Davante Adams all season. "Any time he's on the field, it doesn't matter what he's doing, he's a unsafe quarterback". On the following drive, Mack got on the board for the first time as a Bear as he intercepted Kizer, who was under heavy pressure from Robertson-Harris, and returned it 27 yards for the touchdown to make it 17-0.

Welcome back, Aaron Rodgers.
