Rodgers on free time: 'I haven't been carousing'

DALLAS -- Packers fans that are sick of "silly media stories" (read: the whole business with the team photo issue) should be relieved that they're not likely to see Aaron Rodgers on film in a karaoke bar singing Billy Joel.

That's because the Packers quarterback has been taking it easy this week when it comes to nightlife.

"I haven't been out carousing," Rodgers said. "I am a homebody so I've been spending a lot of time in my hotel room watching film. I think it is important at the same time that you are sticking with your normal routine."

So, is that a jab at Big Ben? Or simply Rodgers way of pointing out that he's sticking with his routine, which does not involve "carousing."

Certainly the first part of his quote is more explosive, but people have often said that Rodgers thinks very, very carefully about what he says before he says it. Plus, it doesn't seem like Rodgers style to take potshots at his opponents (see: him aggressively defending Jay Cutler).

So it seems pretty likely that Rodgers was just pointing out exactly what he's been doing this week, which happens to be, well, nothing. And for all the people chastising Roethlisberger for his actions (myself included to a degree), it's probably smart to remember that he's been here before, he knows what he's doing and there's probably no need to worry about his preparation before a game as big as Sunday's.

Wow. A Charger fan should never speak...at all. Your opinion does not matter. Your team blows, your fans blow, and your city is garbage. Just wanted to clarify...How many RINGS do the Chargers have? ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Packers too tight

Rodgers and McCarthy seem wound WAY too tight this week. Way way too stuffy. I think it could hurt them. I'd rather my team be a little looser.

Ben going out to dinner and a karaoke bar on a TUESDAY night with his offensive linemen seems -- NORMAL!

Rodgers on free time: 'I haven't been carousing'

This article is simply proof that there is waaaaaaaay too much Super Bowl hype and coverage.  And I am a die-hard Packer fan!  Just wasted another few minutes of my time reading this.  And writing this, for that matter.

Agree.  What a non-story.  Had Ben been spotted at Inspiration Point, then we have a story.

On a fast track, this game turns into a track meet.  Packers 38, Steelers 17.

This is such a non-story! Ben has been here before. A few times, and he was just following a tradition that he started his first Super Bowl. So just like Aaron, Ben was sticking to his normal routine also!

Go Steelers!!

Frankly, I think it's refreshing to see a football player that's got a vocabulary larger than fifteen words.

Really..what year is this? Carousing??
No kidding.  I wonder if they're hoping to catch him in a speak-easy.  Haha.

Dammit, I was about a half hour late...........I wanted to use the Bees Knees line!  But it would have been better if AES was talking about Drew Brees!
