Aaron Rodgers wouldn't say whether this is the toughest turnaround he's ever had, going to Seattle for a Thursday night game after a 3:25 Sunday home game after consecutive road games at L.A. and New England. “I don't know. we've had some tough ones this year," Rodgers said. "West coast to east coast. Like I said the other day, we've had some years where we don't go west of Minneapolis. Being a Midwest team, we have kind of the advantage I think in travel, going east and then just having one time zone, and going west, it's obviously a lot easier to play on your body clocks. When you have a wake up call for 8 a.m., it feels like at 10 a.m. so you're kind of getting a little sleep in. As John Kuhn used to say, you're gaining an hour or two at times - his wisdom. But no, I think that's the way the schedule goes sometimes. Some years it's set up pretty good for us and some years they're making us go a lot. “It's tough for the older guys like myself. Tuesday is a great rehab day and a personal day to get your body back and we're in here most of the day walkthroughs and meetings and stuff. That's the way the NFL has done it. They enjoy the Thursday games. Maybe something to talk about when the next CBA comes up.”

Lions DC Paul Pasqualoni, who was Syracuse's head coach the last time the Orange (then the Orangemen) were ranked as highly as they are now, said he's happy to see the school have success in football again. He particularly praised Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey. "I think Eric Dungey is a very competitive, very, very tough guy at the quarterback position," Pasqualoni said. "And like every program, every football program in America, you need a good quarterback at this level and at that level, the Division I level, to win. And I think Eric Dungey gives them that and hope that they can be successful throughout the season."

Lions QB Matt Cassel tells me his mother-in-law is among the people who had to evacuate their homes over the past few days due to the fires in Southern California. He said he's knows at least 5-10 people who have been evacuated from their homes. "It's chaos so we've just been praying for everybody," Cassel said. "Got a lot of people displaced right now. It's just an unfortunate situation." Cassel said his mother-in-law is now further inland staying with family. No one he knows, to this point, has lost their home but a lot of people he knows are still at risk. "We're fortunate that nobody [we know] has lost their home, but unfortunately there are a lot of people out there that have," Cassel said. "So like I said, you just pray for them and hopefully the firemen and firewomen can all take care of it." The 36-year-old says he plans on offering assistance to try and help as they figure out and understand what will be needed.
