Oh, Good, Now Aaron Rodgers is Injured

Aaron Rodgers

The Scooter Tolzien era is finally upon us, ladies and gentlemen!

Alright, not really.

It was maybe upon the Green Bay Packers briefly at practice on Wednesday, however. Aaron Rodgers is indeed injured in some way, shape or form. Rodgers was listed as limited for Wednesday’s practice.

Do we expect that will keep Rodgers out of Sunday’s game?

We do not.

Earlier in the day, coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers was banged up.

Whether he was referring to Rodgers’ pride or some actual physical ailment, we’re not sure.

Either way, the guy doesn’t need to practice to play and if he’s dinged up, let him rest. We can’t deal with another excuse about why the offense isn’t getting it done.

    Maybe his shoulder has been bothering him for a while now.

    1. Deepsky November 19, 2015

      Would they have let him throw 60+ times if they knew his shoulder was injured?

  2. C3P November 18, 2015

    If he’s been hurt for weeks that would explain a lot.

    Great! Hopefully he is out and some packers fans will how much “better off we are” without him

      I think you missed the word “see”. It would be nice to “see” what S Tolzien or Hundley can do if A Rodgers is out. I do not believe that we have a chance to win that game as it is! I would hate to see Rodgers get hurt worse than he already is. Sit him! This is most likely a loss anyway. Who needs A Rodgers messed up for the rest of the year? But if he plays, I sure hope they protect him better than those 11 sacks, numerous hits, etc. he has had to deal with for the last 3 games. Now, what do you really think Kato?

    The new report out said the Packers have the slowest WR in the NFL.

    I think we may be witnessing the toppling of the empire. This is Minnesota’s chance to throw a boot party and put Green Bay out of its misery in front of 2/3rd’s of the country. If Rodger’s is hurt, who cares, that will just be a weak excuse for an inevitable loss. Hate to say but they have better talent at all levels save QB and a better coach. The Packers may have one of the youngest teams and that should bode well for the future but the players that really matter aren’t that young and the supposed up and comers are fucking crap. Thanks Ted. Unfortunately they will just keep doing what they do best. Count on 7 draft picks to fill the holes that were left by the previous drafts. Fuck!! I will be happy to be wrong

    The Packers are fine.

    Believe it or not this is the best thing that could possibly happen to this team.

    Every year, the Pack come outta the gate storming, usually the hottest team in the NFL for the first 8-10 weeks of the season and then they fade late (New York, San Francisco twice, Seattle) this team is always “the team to beat going into the playoffs”. For once they have something to prove and that’s right where they should be — the team that actually “has something to prove”.

    Remember. It’s always the “hot” team going into the playoffs that ends up winning the Super Bowl (ala Green Bay 2010). That team was HORRIBLE to start the year, 3-3, 7-4, wild card. Barely beat Chicago to get in. They did not play well — but…..they got “hot” at the right time.

    In order to fix that they need to get their shit straight on offense and it starts with the bullshit McCarthy and Clements have the receivers doing. None of these idiots can get open because all they run is iso routes (for those with low FB IQ those are routes where the receiver is completely independent from other WR’s, they never cross and are completely dependant on beating man-on-man coverage). Time to scrap that shit and go back to running back-side slants, crossing patterns, short quick out routes, screens to the RB. That’s how this offense BECAME elite 5 years ago. Short quick routes to Jennings and Driver — those effective patterns SETUP the run, SETUP the deep ball. Not the other way around.

    This team doesn’t need to run anymore. Fuck the run. This isn’t the 1960’s anymore. New England, New Orleans, San Diego, Atlanta all lead the NFL in total offense — why? They throw, throw, throw. Brady went into NY a month ago and threw 54 times and ran just 5 running plays. FIVE! Who leads the NFL in total passing, attempts and attempts per/game? Brady, Brees and Rivers. Rodgers isn’t anywhere close to those guys. Why? McCarthy and Clements spend more time wasting plays calling half-ass HB dives and delayed handoffs on 1st and 10 that go nowhere and then wonder why they lead the league in 3rd and long situations.

    This is a PASSING league. You MUST throw the football to win. The ONLY reason Green Bay came back on Carolina two weeks ago was because they threw more. The ONLY reason Rodgers made it a game last week was because he THREW more. The running game is broke — so what. Start running more short quick out-routes and crossing patterns like New England does. Short and quick. New England has half, fucking HALF, the weapons Rodgers does. It’s not hard to design these types of patterns for guys like Cobb and Adams. It’s not hard to run more screens to Lacy and Starks. It’s not hard for James Jones to run a back-side slant once in awhile as opposed to a post route. Make an adjustment and you’ll be fine.

    Good piece PacTak….
    If they don’t respond to wake up call now it will be a cold and dreary December for my TV on Sundays..

    Hope you’re right…

    Agreeing with other contributions that Suspecting QB1 been dealing w some kinda throwing arm injury affecting his mechanics… Many if His missed throws, citing the one to Cobb last week, have been off by a mile…

    MMTTDC- so we are going to sit out best player that gives us the best chance to win against a team that leads us in the division by 1 game, and we retake the division lead if we win. But let’s say fuck this game anyways because we have no shot at winning this game apparently (Indy beating Denver isn’t fresh in your mind apparently). But this season is over according to you and lots of other packers fans. Sounds reasonable

  9. Kato November 19, 2015

    Sit out our*

  10. MMTTDCSUCK November 19, 2015

    I did not say that the season was over, just that the way that our OT’s are playing it may not be a good idea to play Rodgers with an already injured throwing shoulder. One game w/o Rodgers versus many w/o him was what I was attempting to get across to you . . . I am all for winning this game. But based on Rodgers and Bulaga and Bahktiari’s current injuries, and how they are playing (the whole team) it seemed logical NOT to throw him to the wolves. Because that fucking Vikings team will be coming guns blazing in their house. If trends say anything, this one is saying it may be ugly! very ugly . . . But then again, “Any Given Sunday” right Kato? I trust that you have the inside scoop to the relevance of this upcoming Packers victory! I will be cheering right along with the rest of the Packer Nation for this win!

    His arm has had nothing to do with his play. I saw no lack of zip on his passes.

    His suckiness is due to his sudden inability to read defenses, look through his progressions without panicking, and his inability to get over his ego when it comes to certain players.
