Aaron Rodgers Will Not Play Packers

Aaron Rodgers Will Not Play Packers - Finally, the Patriots [team stats] know which Packers quarterback they will face tonight.

Green Bay announced yesterday that starter Aaron Rodgers is out for the 8:20 showdown against the Patriots, as the concussion he suffered last week will prevent him from playing. Rodgers was not cleared by the team’s medical staff.

That means backup Matt Flynn will make his first NFL start in a game that will go a long way in deciding the Packers’ playoff fate.

Flynn, the former seventh-round pick out of LSU, was 15-of-26 for 177 yards with an interception in a loss to the Detroit Lions last Sunday.

All week the Patriots had been adamant they were preparing for the Packers offense in general, not a specific quarterback.

“We’re getting ready for everybody,” safety Brandon Meriweather said. “Not Matt Flynn, not just Aaron Rodgers, we’re getting ready for their whole team. They got a good team. They got a bunch of weapons. For me to sit here and try to break down every one, it’ll take forever.”

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said earlier this week that the goal is for the offense not to change if the quarterback does.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
