Kartje: Nick Foles is defying logic again in second run at Super Bowl

The strangest chapter of perhaps the strangest career in NFL history began, rather fittingly, with a phone call from Jeff Fisher. It was late July 2016. The Rams had just move to Los Angeles and drafted a ew, new quarterback, much to the chagrin of the old, new quarterback, who had just signed a two-year, $24.5 million extension a year before. In spite of that deal, no one expected Nick Foles at the Rams facilities that offseason. Fisher had benched Foles in favor of Case Keenum the previous Oct...

Whicker: It all started when Aaron Donald became agile and hostile in Mobile

The beauty pageant begins in Mobile, Ala. Coaches, scouts, general managers and hangers-on migrate to the Gulf to see college players practice, then play the Senior Bowl, with real live NFL coaching staffs running the show. The town was not named after Aaron Donald, who showed up five years ago. But there’s time to spread that rumor. He was a defensive tackle from Pittsburgh who spent most of his college days in offensive backfields. Yet he was, and is, only six feet tall. “Why are you here?” as...

Not long before getting job offer, Matt LaFleur got a call from Aaron Rodgers

The Packers' official position was that quarterback Aaron Rodgers would have no input in the search for a new coach. Unofficially, well, did anyone really believe that the Packers would hire a coach without getting the approval of their $33.5 million face of the franchise? During Wednesday's introductory press conference, new Packers coach Matt LaFleur admitted he got a phone call from Rodgers before LaFleur received a job offer.

Kartje: Predictable New Orleans Saints are only Super Bowl choice in an unpredictable field

Six weeks ago, as the Rams and Chiefs produced 105 points and 1,001 yards on an unforgettable Monday night at the Coliseum, it felt as if a new era of football was being ushered in before our eyes. The game, the first in history in which 50 points wasn’t enough to win, sent the football zeitgeist on a frantic search for meaning. Prognosticators immediately opined about the future of football, some welcoming the offensive onslaught, others bemoaning the untimely death of defense. It was all an ov...

Marcedes Lewis detailed tension between Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy in Green Bay this season

As Mike McCarthy's time in Green Bay came to a close this season, rumors grew of increased tension between the former head coach and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The once seemingly perfect duo — who reached the playoffs eight times together and won a Super Bowl — reportedly started butting heads this season as the Packers struggled. Rodgers even apparently started calling his own plays on the field, completely ignoring McCarthy's play calls at times.

Aaron Rodgers seems to want Joe Philbin to remain the head coach

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won’t be involved in the team’s search for a new coach. If Rodgers were, he’d apparently want the interim coach to get the job. “We want to play for Joe [Philbin] and give him the best opportunity possible,” Rodgers said after Sunday’s overtime win against the Jets, via Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal. While that’s not quite a “hire this man” endorsement from Rodgers, it’s basically the same message.

Week 16 Fantasy Booms and Busts: Packers and Jets pay your bills

It’s uncommon for any football game to match fantasy expectations, let alone exceed them. But Green Bay’s 44-38 overtime victory at the Jets was the gift that kept on giving. Aaron Rodgers (442 yards passing, four total touchdowns) had one of those “I’m still here” games, while Sam Darnold (341 yards, three touchdowns) looked like a future star.
