"It was a good day at practice today and I'm excited. I'm just going to go through the week like I'm definitely going to be playing. "Hopefully, Aaron can get back, but I'm just going to go in there like I'm going to be playing and prepare like it."
Rodgers' Consussion Being Evaluated

The Packers will face the Patriots on Sunday night. "We're not going to take any chances," coach Mike McCarthy said. "No different than on game day.

49ers Won't Turn Packers' Into Coach-Killers For Third Time In 2010
The Green Bay Packers have been 'coach killers' twice in 2010, beating the Cowboys and Vikings in games that forced their those teams to fire Wade Phillips and Brad Childress respectively. Mike Singletary has had his job in jeopardy for several weeks, but San Francisco 34-16 loss to the Packers will not result in a coaching change. 49ers CEO Jed York was asked if Singletary would receive a similar fate to Phillips and Childress. "No, we just have to take it one game at a time and get ready for Seattle," replied York. "The margin of error is very, very slim," York said. "But our guys can't give up." Said Singletary, "I coach for my job every week. I never take anything for granted. We got Seattle coming up this week and that's the only thing we're going to think about."
