Rodgers and Packer offense are clicking well


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers is a big music fan and his newest hobby is playing guitar. On the field, the Packers quarterback is keeping Green Bay's offense in rhythm, too.

A year removed from the distractions of Brett Favre's (fahrvz) annual unretirement saga and with No. 4's latest comeback 280 miles west in Minneapolis, Rodgers has been sharp and looked comfortable in two exhibition wins.

Rodgers, who says indie rock and country music are his favorites, watched HBO's "Hard Knocks," the behind-the-scenes look at Bengals' training camp, instead of Favre's debut with the Vikings on Friday.

Then he came out Saturday in a 31-21 win over Buffalo showing all the reasons the Packers were elated when they drafted him in the first round of 2005 as Favre's eventual replacement.
