Packers' Rodgers won't make Super Bowl guarantee
Sunday, July 31, 2011
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers won't repeat tight end Jermichael Finley's proclamation that the Packers are Super Bowl bound for the second straight year.
Rodgers is happy to be able to throw the football again to Finley, whose potential breakout season was cut short by a knee injury. But Rodgers isn't making any guarantees Green Bay will be in Indianapolis in February to try to repeat as NFL champion, as many are predicting.
The reigning Super Bowl MVP cautioned before the team's training camp practice Sunday night that the Packers were embarking on a new season without some pieces to last year's championship puzzle.
Green Bay lost defensive end Cullen Jenkins and guard Daryn Colledge in the first few days of free agency.
