Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ injured calf is better this week than it was on Monday of last week.
That’s nothing but good news, considering Rodgers had done nothing but get treatment the seven days prior to last Monday. This Monday, he’s coming off a game where he took his share of hits and it sounds as if he’s no worse for wear.
“He made it through the game very well,” McCarthy said. “I think he feels better this week than he does at this time last week.”
After the game, Rodgers was less than concerned about the injury. He had this to say, which Jason Wilde is currently screen printing onto a t-shirt.
“I think I’ve got 120 minutes left in me,” Rodgers said. “So I’m going to do everything I can to make sure I can play all those minutes.”
If you’re a little dimwitted, 120 minutes is the length of two full football games, i.e. the NFC Championship and Super Bowl.
So stick that in your pipe and smoke it!
Now, on another note, Rodgers whipped out the belt on Sunday, which I totally missed. He did it after throwing that bullet to DickRodge for what proved to be the winning score. Here it is in wonderful, spectacular .gif form. Rodgers looks pretty okay right there too, doesn’t he?
He’s a bad man
I am not sure, he looked a little gimpy, esp in the first half. Guess will find out in the coming baptism by fire.
baptism by what?? likely a wet day, like most January days on the Pacific NW coast. should be more like a homecoming to the W coast-bred AR, rather than a “rebirth”… but whatever, AR is going to be feeling better than ever compared to how he felt against a far stronger Dallas team…
I wouldn’t go that far…
well, ok, whatever, but there is a more serious concern on the horizon:
what do we do if those thieving Colts are our opp. in Phoenix, and, in the unlikely event they score a TD, they then try to play OUR TD song [“I Don’t Want to Work”]? i thought they had discontinued this plagiarism during their game at Denver, but ain’t sure, and you never know; they may be keeping it in reserve… could cause a bloody riot, no?
Looks more like an innertube than a belt. I think he needs to watch some WWF reruns, take some notes, and bring that title back to his waist.
here’s an item of interest: apparently Jerry Jones didn’t expect the cowboys in the post season, at least not to conflict with the BCS championship game…
speaking of the BCS game: OSU has a QB that looks like he was separated from Cam Newton at birth– if the cats had had this “super-Cam” they would have beaten the hawks, as he’s built and plays just like Cam, but without the wild passing inaccuracies! this game still has a Qtr. to go, and it seems the only chance Oregon has is to stay alert as good opportunistic “ball hawks” and to seize on every turnover opportunity coming their way…
other than that, OSU with a super-Cam QB and a demarco Murray clone RB [Elliott], plus a Lions lookalike D, they are untouchable [no wonder they beat WI 59-0].
and don’t forget: like the pack, this talented team stumbled over a couple wrinkles early in the 2014 season too! but, as the great HC Joe Gibbs always said, “it’s not how good you play at the start of a season, it’s all about how good, and hot, you are at the end of the season”.
bottom line: i hope MM has the whole team watch this game before next sunday, as they haven’t been playing a “ball hawk” N div. team, e.g., the Bears since Urlacher retired and Stilllman went inactive.
corr.: Tillman, not Stilllman. da Lovie Bears were always good refresher training on ball security and ball alertness [ball “hawks”], and that is one thing the CheatHawks can usually excel at… but as the BCS game demonstrates, for the zillionth time, ball “hawks” like the mascot buzzards in the Seattle bird coop, still need to be presented with an opportunity; don’t be the guy that gives them an opportunity.
Plus, he’s got that cool moustache thing going again as well…
All 4 teams enter Championship Sunday playing their best football all season. I wouldn’t want to call the outcomes of these games with any certainty. It should be one helluva show on Sunday!
Not sure if that wasn’t BritRodg playing the first half of Dallas Game….
The best part of that clip is Rodgers2 flexing in the back. Haha. I imagine that outside of the frame every Packer on the field is doing some kind of TD maneuver.
