Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was unhappy with his own performance in Sunday’s loss to the 49ers.
“Frustrating way to end the season,” Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I think a lot of us felt with the way things had gone the last four or five weeks that there was something special about this year, and everything might be aligning right for us to make a run. So, I’m very disappointed. Personally, it’s frustrating not to play your best game. Tough conditions, but the defense held them to 23 points. We should win that game.”
Rodgers finished the game 17-for-26 for 177 yards and one touchdown, giving him a 97.8 quarterback rating. To his defense, it was only his second game back since Week 9, so clearly all the rust was not off him yet. Expect this loss to motivate Rodgers even more this offseason, as he will look to bounce back from a 2013 season he will want to forget. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.
Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.
One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley
