Rodgers Will Return This Week

Aaron Rodgers

Good news for the Packers.

The Green Bay Packers will have their catalyst when they face the New York Giants in their biggest game of the season, this week. Aaron Rodgers is set to return from a concussion-induced one-game absence, according to Jason Wilde.

Yes, after seeing his 46-game consecutive starts streak (including playoffs) snapped when he was inactive for Sunday night’s 31-27 loss to the New England Patriots because of a concussion suffered Dec. 12 at Detroit, the Green Bay Packers quarterback said he has passed all the requisite cognitive tests and been cleared by both team physician Dr. John Gray and an independent neurologist, clearing the way for him to return to action for Sunday’s must-win game against the New York Giants at Lambeau Field.

The Packers will face a Giants team that can clinch a wild card berth if they win Sunday’s game. Similarly, if the Packers win their final two games, they’re guaranteed a wild card.

The Chicago Bears, who are the Packers week 17 opponent, clinched the NFC North by beating Minnesota, Monday night.

Although backup Matt Flynn played well against the Patriots, he isn’t exactly the elite-level quarterback Rodgers is. Nor does he have the experience in big games — the Patriots’ game was his first NFL start.

Now we can worry about more important things, like stopping the Giants rushing attack.

    Yes, not only is this a must, but it is also big that he can participate all week and not miss any of the preparation for a huge game.

    Rodgers is in, now we need the O-line to play tough, and hope that McCarthy changes the batteries in his Mickey Mouse stopwatch. Anyone else think Mikey might be a cloned cross between Fred Flinstone & Rainman? He def-def-definitely sounds like Rainman in press conferences..GO PACK GO!!!

    Eli Manning is having a team meeting on the proper way to milk a bull’s prostate while Rodgers is preparing his offense for a big win on Sunday. Meetings are for acloholics and farm animal molesters like Eli.

    The O line better man up this week or Rodgers may end up done for good. The Giants have been beasts on their pass rush.

    Has anyone else read the article on ESPN re: Donald Driver & Aaron’s concussion during the Lions game? Driver is the epitomy of class & the definitive team player.
