08:04 AM ET 07.01 | Perhaps the Super Bowl champs are entitled to a bit of distance from concern they're not working out enough during the lockout. If there's concern that Aaron Rodgers and his teammates haven't worked out together during the NFL-imposed lockout this offseason, there shouldn't be. That's according to the Green Bay Packers' quarterback, although he would reveal little about what he's been doing since winning the Super Bowl in February. ... [Rodgers] wouldn't even say whether he's met up with or thrown to any of his current Packers receivers this offseason. "I've been throwing enough to where I'm not worried about if I'm going to be ready for when this thing shakes down," Rodgers said Thursday. The Packers were among the teams that didn't hold any player-organized workouts during the lockout.

Didn't need to.

Well, they're going to regret it when the season comes. How long does it take to get timing down?

What's he supposed to say? "

"Well, geez, I hadn't really thought about it. I've been laying on the couch with my thumbs up my **** eating cheetos and lard".

That's Haynesworth's line.

Mixed start to their schedule - New Orleans, Carolina, Chicago and Denver. The Saints have been practicing. I don't know about da Bears, and the other two don't really matter.

Timing doesn;t matter when the recievers can't catch the ball.

Who honestly thinks any of these " workouts " had any football value? Not me. They could have all gone to Disney World and accomplished the same thing.

He needs to worry about staying healthy and trying to repeat. No exactly easy on both counts.

July 1, 2011  08:44 AM ET

It's tough to repeat, everyone is gunning for you.

Yeah, I figured most of these would be kind of Mickey Mouse workouts, anyway. Pretty Goofy.

Of course they were. No veteran WR would ever run full speed now and get hurt during a lockout. No lineman. Flag football in a Park would be a better workout. Jeesh! This whole workout thing was just PR and mostly talk about the new CBA.

Aaron Rodgers is the new Tony Romo...time for him to be seen in public with some smokin' hot arse.

July 1, 2011  08:54 AM ET

I remember another Green Bay QB that went out of his way to miss pre season

Besides TO... of course no one really knows what he was doing when he got hurt.

My guess he was in a room , by himself, with the lights off. Just my guess.

In Green Bay that would be a 250 pounder with a cheese hat and a pick up truck with tip ups in the back.
