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.

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.

With 80 percent of the Delaware River navigation channel deepened to 45 feet, officials including Sen. Robert Casey (D., Pa.) and Mayor Kenney planned to tour Packer Avenue Marine Terminal in South Philadelphia Friday afternoonand discuss how a deeper channel will keep Philadelphia competitive with other major ports. The dredging work that began in March 2010 should be completed by late 2017 between Philadelphia and the Atlantic Ocean. Sen. Casey announced in February that $55 million, the final chunk of federal funding to deepen 103 miles of the river from 40 feet to 45 feet, was in the Army Corps of Engineers' current work plan and in President Obama's proposed budget for next year.

Packers (-2.5) over BRONCOS Let's see: 6-0 vs. 6-0. No edge there . . . Both are teams coming off a bye week. No edge there . . . Denver's defense is No. 1 overall, allowing the fewest yards (281.3), while Green Bay is No. 1 in points allowed per game (16.8). No edge there . . . So it boils down to the QBs - Aaron Rodgers vs. Peyton Manning . Huge edge there, to Mr. Discount Double Check. Maybe a few years ago, the glaring edge would not have been such a big deal, but check the numbers.

THE EAGLES preseason has been punctuated by some in-your-face performances. Tim Tebow running for a touchdown to the delight of the crowd in the first game against the Colts. The tag-team interception by Nolan Carroll and Walter Thurmond against Joe Flacco and the Ravens. Kenjon Barner exploding for two punt-return touchdowns in the first two games, turning a little dunk pass into a 50-yard gain against Green Bay the other night. Then there were all those stuffed runs. And a secondary that appeared so improved, the head coach gave it a nickname: "Lactose intolerant.

THROW-BY-THROW DESCRIPTION GREEN BAY - Here is a description of each throw from Sam Bradford's 10-for-10, 121-yard, three-touchdown performance Saturday night at Lambeau Field. Several of the throws weren't especially long or difficult, but it was remarkable that none went over, behind, or in front of the intended receiver. Once, Jordan Matthews had to leave his feet to gather in a pass, but it seemed to have been thrown high to get it over the coverage. Bradford wasn't under a ton of pressure, but he did take a few hits.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, and three starting offensive linemen did not have suited up for Green Bay's potent offense Saturday night. But for the first time this summer, the Packers had all 11 preferred starters on defense for their preseason game against the Eagles. And Green Bay couldn't wait to see how it fared against Chip Kelly's fastbreak offense. Afterward, the Packers were beaten, broken, and still trying to catch their breath. The Eagles scored touchdowns on all three of their possessions.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Sam Bradford might not have been perfect, according to the folks who created the passer rating some 40-odd years ago, but his one quarter of play against the Green Bay Packers Saturday was without fault and the perfect way for the Eagles quarterback to head into the regular season. The Eagles have one more preseason game, against the New York Jets, but Bradford has nothing left to prove and likely will watch on Thursday even though he played only 34 snaps over two games.

Davante Adams, Packers: Figures to benefit most after Jordy Nelson ripped up his knee. Adams had 38-446-3 last year in the regular season, but is best remembered for 7-117-1 in the playoff win over Dallas. Nelson Agholor, Eagles: Average draft position in ESPN leagues is 83rd. Agholor is a WR4/5 with obvious high upside in Chip Kelly's offense. Keenan Allen, Chargers: Has cleaned up his diet - literally eschewing fried food for more salads. So at least he'll be hungry for a bounce-back season.

EAGLES RADIO VOICE Merrill Reese was disappointed when he entered the NovaCare media room yesterday and heard that Aaron Rodgers isn't expected to play when the Eagles visit Green Bay tomorrow night. Someone observed that Rodgers, 31, a two-time NFL MVP, probably doesn't need to play the Eagles in the preseason to get ready to lead the Packers into the games that count. "Yes, but I need him to play!" Reese joked. Like many fans and media observers, Reese had been looking forward to seeing how the Eagles' much-discussed defensive improvements would stack up, even in a meaningless game, against the NFC's top quarterback.

The Maersk Group, based in Denmark, will send two vessels a week to the Packer Avenue port through each of two SeaLand shipping lines.

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.
