GREEN BAY, Wis. Lawrence Taylor Giants Jersey . -- Aaron Rodgers doesnt deny that he called Brett Favre Grandpa at some point during their three years together in Green Bay.But contrary to an excerpt published from the?recently released book Gunslinger: The Remarkable, Improbable, Iconic Life of Brett Favre, Rodgers said that was not what he called Favre upon their first meeting in 2005.?The story that was out there that I saw is completely 100 percent false, Rodgers said Wednesday.?In the book excerpt published by Bleacher Report, the first interaction between Rodgers and Favre, the QB that Rodgers was drafted to eventually replace, was described like this:?Rodgers and Favre finally met on June 2, [2005], when the Packers came to town for a seven-practice organized team activity camp. Now merely a head coach (and a disgruntled one at that), [Mike] Sherman allowed Favre to skip the workouts, but that didnt mean he would not attend. In fact, that morning Favre was alone, sitting in the team cafeteria and reading a newspaper, when Rodgers saw him in person for the first time. The new quarterback approached the old quarterback and uttered what will forever go down as the worst introductory line in the history of professional sports. Good morning, grandpa! Silence. In the book, backup quarterback Craig Nall corroborated the story, saying: Brett couldnt believe that. It was like, Grandpa? Who the hell are you?Neither Rodgers nor Favre spoke to the books author, Jeff Pearlman, during his reporting.However, Rodgers on Wednesday called the excerpt highly sensationalized.Ill just say this: The first time I met Brett was on the practice field, and I could barely get a sentence out of, Hello, my name is Aaron, Rodgers said. Did I call him Grandpa at any time during the three years together? Probably. But its in the same joking way that my man Brett Hundley called me Grandpa three weeks ago on the field when we were doing a competitive drill.The story that was out there that I saw is completely 100 percent false, and I would dare anybody to test my memory on that. You guys know how my memory works. The end.The relationship between Rodgers and Favre has been oft-discussed but whatever may have happened in the past, they appear to be in a good place now. They posed for a picture together with legendary Packers quarterback Bart Starr last year on Thanksgiving, and Rodgers attended Favres induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this past summer. Custom New York Giants Jerseys . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. Dalvin Tomlinson Youth Jersey . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. . Artturi Lehkonen, Joni Nikko and Ville Leskinen had the other goals for Finland (1-0) while Juuse Saros stopped 28 shots. Tim Robin Johnsgard had the lone goal for Norway (0-2). HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans dealt with a fans hand-held laser pointed at quarterback Brock Osweilers eyes, questionable placement of the ball on two key plays and a would-be touchdown that was whistled dead in a loss to Oakland on Monday night.Sure, the Texans were unhappy with all of those things, but a day later they know that dwelling on what happened in Mexico City wont do them any good this week. The message for the Texans was clear on Tuesday: Its time to move on.They really have no other choice but to put the 27-20 defeat behind them with the San Diego Chargers heading to town in six days and Houston needing a win to remain in control of the AFC South. Houston (6-4) remains atop their division, but the loss put them within one game of the second-place Colts.The feeling in that locker room after that game is theres a lot of football left and we have a lot to build on from that game, coach Bill OBrien said. Being in first place is a good thing. The other teams in the division are playing pretty decent. So weve got to understand what is coming down the road here, but the first thing is San Diego, getting a good start on them on Wednesday.OBrien didnt want to discuss any of the calls from Monday night on Tuesday, but he did address the laser pointer after learning more about what happened since his postgame news conference. He said that running back Lamar Miller had it pointed in his face along with Osweiler.It doesnt even enter your mind that someone would bring a laser into a game and point it at one of your players ... I think thats terrible, OBrien said. I dont know what you can do about it.While dealing with the laser pointer and the questionable calls by the referees certainly werent ideal for the Texans, they cant blame the loss entirely on those things. Their defense played great for three quarters before a 75-yard touchdown reception by Jamize Olawale tied things up and Amari Cooper took a screen pass 35 yards for the winning touchdown.Houstons pass defense entered the game ranked third in the NFL and the Texans had a rush defense that was among the worst in the league. On Monday night, the Texans allowed just 30 yards rushing, but were hurt by the receiving of the Oaklands running backs, who combined for 199 yards receiving. Eli Manning Giants Jersey. here were some missed tackles. Give them credit, OBrien said. But on a positive note, we held them to 30 yards rushing. So in the last three games weve done a good job against the run, but last night their running backs did a good job about us in the passing game. No doubt about it.A positive to come out of Monday nights game was the continued strong play of defensive end Jadeveon Clowney , the top overall pick in the 2014 draft. Clowney, who was slowed by injuries in his first two seasons, had five tackles, including two for losses, to give him 12 tackles for losses this season.He was very disruptive in the game even when he didnt make a play, OBrien said. Hes having a good year for us and the key for him, like all of our players at this time of the year, is staying healthy. But I thought he really impacted the game last.Osweiler , who has been inconsistent in his first season in Houston, wasnt great on Monday, but OBrien believes that he is making progress. He threw for 243 yards on Monday after managing just 99 yards passing last week in a win over Jacksonville.I think he played one of his better games and I think if he can continue to keep getting more comfortable, better and better with our offense youre going to see improvement every week, OBrien said.Game notes OBrien was asked about a story J.J. Watt wrote published by the Players Tribune on Tuesday where he discussed his health and disclosed that he had a staph infection last season. Watt is out for the season after back surgery. J.J. is working very hard to be back here in 2017, OBrien said. I dont think hell be back here this year, although technically you could bring him back in January, but were not going to do that. Hell be back in 2017. Hes in the building today, in good spirits and working to be better than ever in 2017.As far of the list of injuries ... thats probably a better question to ask him.---For more NFL coverage: and ' ' '
