The Green Bay Packers are showing interest in Tim Couch and Eric Crouch. Yesterday, Cleveland granted the Packers permission to talk with Couch, a quarterback whose 5-year stint with the Browns effectively ended earlier this month when the club signed free-agent quarterback Jeff Garcia. Green Bay could be looking for Couch to be a backup and potential successor to Brett Favre, who is nearing the end of his career. The Packers' current backup is journeyman Doug Pederson. Crouch, the 2001 Heisman Trophy winner who twice previously bolted NFL training camps and seemed to be retired, has been reinstated by Green Bay from the "reserve/retired" list, according to ESPN.

There may be two games on Monday night, but there is only one Monday Night Football. Because of last night's World Series game in Miami, the Chicago Bears at Miami Dolphins game was switched to tonight. But the only game on the tube is Green Bay at New England (Channel 6, 9 p.m.) in a rematch of last season's Super Bowl. The Packers (5-2), who have had trouble stopping the run, should get a big boost in that area from 350-pound nose tackle Gilbert Brown, who is returning from a knee injury.

The Green Bay Packers yesterday traded Brent Fullwood to the Cleveland Browns for a draft choice, saying the fullback did not fit into the club's system. Fullwood missed the second half of Sunday's 27-13 loss to Chicago after carrying twice for minus-3 yards in the first half. Fullwood said he was too ill to continue playing and did not come out of the locker room for the second half. Fullwood led the Packers in rushing last year with 821 yards. He had 124 yards in five games this year.

THE GREEN BAY Packers have raised $67 million the last 6 weeks by selling shares of stock for $250 apiece. When the Packers decided to upgrade Lambeau Field - a $143 million effort to add 6,700 additional seats, high-definition video screens and a new entrance by next year - they resolved not to ask for a single taxpayer dime. Instead, they reverted back to the same strategy that has helped keep the Packers afloat several times in team history - a stock sale. The latest offering wrapped up Wednesday.

The Green Bay Packers are interested in signing troubled running back Lawrence Phillips as a backup to Dorsey Levens, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. Last week, Phillips rushed for 177 yards and spurred the greatest comeback in NFL Europe history by leading the Barcelona Dragons to a 42-35 victory over Scotland after they trailed, 28-3. The winning touchdown was a 73-yard romp by Phillips. The former Nebraska running back, who also played in St. Louis and Miami before being waived by both teams, already has set NFL Europe season records in rushing yards and touchdowns.

THE ROUT WAS ON and the mind wandered, just as it had the night before in front of the television. Sunday night, it was the Packers. Monday night, it was the Eagles. And now the splendid collision is upon us. Eagles vs. Packers. And with that, beginning next Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field, the truth will begin to be told. This night was the setup, just as the Packers' bludgeoning of the Bears had been. This night was the time when the Eagles' cornerbacks finally got their interceptions, when their defense was best described with an adjective one degree beyond voracious, and when Mark Sanchez ran the offense proficiently in his first start in a couple of years.

Green Bay had Tampa Bay's once-vaunted defense on the verge of collapse, so coach Mike Sherman was determined to finish it off. Facing fourth-and-1 from the Buccaneers' 16 in a tie game, the Packers sent Najeh Davenport barreling up the middle for 5 yards instead of going for a go-ahead field goal. Three plays later, Ahman Green scored from the 1 to finish a 98-yard march that gave the Packers a 20-13 victory yesterday. "It was such a beautiful drive, I just hated to let it go to a kicker.

An Oshkosh, Wis., police spokesman said the identity of the person whose body was pulled from the Fox River near the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh campus was not being released pending official notification and wishes of the family. Members of the Packers, however, were told that the body was that of Michael Philbin, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

The outlook for injured Green Bay cornerback Al Harris is encouraging. The former Eagle hurt his spleen in Sunday's game against Dallas and won't play in tomorrow's game against Tampa Bay. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Harris would be out for "at least three to four weeks. " However, it is no longer feared the Pro Bowler would be lost for the season or his playing career is in jeopardy. McCarthy said Harris' spleen doesn't need removal and would be allowed to heal on its own. Giants.

IT MIGHT NOT have been Jack Youngblood on a broken leg in Super Bowl XIV, but it was something like it. Aaron Rodgers passed for 316 yards and three touchdowns and compiled a 125.4 passer rating in the Packers' divisional playoff win Sunday over the Cowboys. Unofficially, that is the best performance in NFL playoff history by a one-legged quarterback. Rodgers played with a torn muscle in his left calf. Tony Romo had a chance to validate his MVP candidacy over Rodgers' on Sunday.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - While the debate as to what constitutes a catch in the NFL rages on, there were two clear and differing opinions on the controversial call Sunday that took a reception away from Dez Bryant in the Packers' 26-21 divisional playoff win over the Cowboys. The Cowboys thought Bryant had possession even though the ball briefly rattled in the wide receiver's hands after it hit the ground. "It was a catch," Bryant said. "It was a catch. " "It looked to me like he had three feet down," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said.

GREEN BAY - Revenge isn't served much colder than this. In 20-degree weather at Ice Bowl II, officials swayed a second consecutive Cowboys playoff game with a crucial call in the fourth quarter. Last week, the Lions were victimized. This time, thanks to the Packers' in-house replay crew, the refs got the call right. "We feel like maybe we had a small little part in helping the Packers win today," said Kregg Shilbauer. He directs the giant Diamond Vision video boards at the east and west ends of Lambeau Field.

Of the five Dallas Cowboys games Gov. Christie has attended this season, team owner Jerry Jones supplied the tickets for three - along with a private plane ride for Christie and his family to attend Sunday's game in Texas, the governor's office said Monday. While New Jersey's rules allow the governor, a longtime Cowboys fan, to accept gifts from friends, two legal experts questioned whether the gifts gave the appearance of improper conduct. "We're going to see. This is a lot of money, being paid for by somebody who is an owner of a team in the NFL. The NFL has wanted a lot of things in New Jersey," said Larry Noble, former general counsel for the Federal Election Commission and now senior counsel with the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan watchdog group in Washington.

IT WAS that seven-game stretch starting in late September that probably clinched this year's fantasy football MVP award for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The man was a mountain of consistency the first 3 months of the season. Three touchdowns and 300 yards were as predictable as Packers players leaping into the stands after scoring touchdowns. In those seven games, Rodgers threw for 23 touchdowns and two interceptions. Rodgers garnered nearly 70 percent of readers' votes to win fantasy MVP for the second time in 4 years.

THE EAGLES' defensive meltdown Sunday at Green Bay began with a faulty assumption that the Packers would want to run more than they did. It continued with a fatal inability to generate enough pressure to make Aaron Rodgers uncomfortable, and too often it ended with Bradley Fletcher flailing ineffectively at Jordy Nelson or occasionally Randall Cobb somewhere downfield, as yet another Rodgers pass settled into the hands of a Packers receiver. As always, it was that last part that got everyone's attention.

A YEAR ago, when their offensive line was healthy and dominant and their star running back was gobbling up yards at a franchise-record pace, a 109-yard rushing performance like the one Sunday against the Packers would be considered a disappointment; a too-small fish that would get tossed back into the lake. But given the struggles of the Eagles' run game this season, no fish is too small, especially when it's caught in an otherwise forgettable, 33-point loss. "I felt we ran the ball with consistency the other night," offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The elation from six days earlier became a distant memory on Sunday, when players packed their bags in a locker room, humiliated by the worst loss since Chip Kelly became the Eagles' coach. The Green Bay Packers' 53-20 win over the Eagles escalated into a rout before halftime, and the Eagles were left swallowing an embarrassing defeat just days after what was perhaps their best performance of the season. "With the way we played today, it wouldn't have mattered if we played Oakland, who hasn't won a game yet," wide receiver Jeremy Maclin said.
