When playing at home, the Green Bay Packer's quarterback tugs on the beard of a communications technician, who works on the sidelines. Green Bay has won all of its home games this season.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the secret of Aaron Rodgers' success. The quarterback for the Green Bay Packers has a good-luck ritual. When playing at home, he tugs the beard of Jeremy Wilcox. Mr. Wilcox is a communications technician who works on the sidelines. His beard is nine inches long. And it became a celebrity after the beard-tugging ritual was caught on TV Sunday. Packers fans will not be wanting him to shave after Green Bay won all its home games this season. It's MORNING EDITION.
