State of Wisconsin Looking to Make 12/12/12 Aaron Rodgers Day in Honor of Packers QB

+Read full article

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers displayed one of the best regular seasons in NFL history this past season after throwing for 4,643 yards to go along with 45 touchdowns and just six interceptions. Despite Rodgers and the Packers falling short of their goal to reach the Super Bowl, the state of Wisconsin still plans on acknowledging their beloved quarterback for the type of season he displayed in 2011.

According to the Associated Press via Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the state Assembly in Wisconsin plans on honoring this year’s MVP with “Aaron Rodgers Day.” Coincidentally, “Aaron Rodgers Day” would happen to take place on December 12, 2012 (which is 12/12/12) to honor Rodgers since he wears No. 12 for the Packers.

While the Wisconsin Senate still needs to approve the special day for Rodgers, it must be a sweet feeling for Rodgers to have a specific day dedicated to himself for all of his accomplishments in Green Bay over the last couple of years. The only downfall of this day would be that it would take place during the middle of the week on a Wednesday instead of a Sunday–which would make it even more enjoyable for Rodgers if it happens.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Watch Cardinals' Palmer Throw Ugly Interception

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
