Wells' Protection Plan Helps Packers Potent Offense


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- If offensive linemen only get noticed when they mess up, Green Bay Packers center Scott Wells' relative anonymity can be seen as a sign of excellence.

While fans marvel at the exploits of Aaron Rodgers and his receivers, coaches and teammates point to Wells as perhaps the smartest player on the field.

The eighth-year player out of Tennessee is the brains behind an offensive line that helped Rodgers and the Packers pass their way to a Super Bowl championship last season and a 7-0 start going into Sunday's game at San Diego. Wells might understand Mike McCarthy's offense as well as anyone.
