Aaron Rodgers Says...'Relax?'

Roman Harper #41 of the Carolina Panthers tackles Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers during their game at Bank of America Stadium on November 8, 2015 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Green Bay Packers return home this weekend for a game against the Detroit Lions.  The game couldn’t come at a better time for the Packers who just lost two road games in a row, and in convincing fashion.

There’s more than a little angst in Packer Nation at the moment, and sports contributor Howie Magner thinks it may be a bit of an over-reaction from fans.

"Suddenly, people are wondering if they are going to make the playoffs, or if they need to fire everybody.  Or whether they should trade Aaron Rodgers, which is all kind of silly," he says.

Meanwhile, the Bucks have been "maybe slightly below average" as head coach Jason Kidd  continues to see what works best for the players, both old and new.

"The goal this year is not to win an NBA Championship, the goal is to see the younger players continue to improve and continue to foster the core," says Magner.

Magner comments more on the Packers season, and a better look at the Milwaukee Bucks and Marquette Golden Eagles as they start their season tonight:
