Aaron Rodgers is Actually Healthier Today

One might logically assume that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers might not be the picture of health after being sacked four times by the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Rodgers went into the game with a calf injury and looked limited throughout.

That assumption may very well be wrong.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers is actually healthier today than he was prior to the game.

“The early indication is he’s better today than he was going into the game. So we feel good about that,” McCarthy said.

That bodes well for the Packers going into their final two games. The team’s passing attack sputtered in Chicago, although that wasn’t entirely Rodgers’ fault.

Rodgers and the Packers’ offense will go from facing the ninth-ranked defense in the NFL in Chicago, to the third-ranked defense in the Minnesota Vikings next week. That Vikings’ defense is also the third-ranked passing defense in the league.

They limited the Packers to just 14 points in their first meeting back in a week 2, a three-point Vikings’ win.

Could the Packers use a healthy Rodgers for that matchup? Yes, please.

    Even injured he is better than 90% of Qbs in the NFL. We are spoilt and half the fans dont even realise it.

    Good. He is the only chance they have at winning shit.

    ” Rodgers went into the game with a calf injury and looked limited throughout.”

    “That assumption may very well be wrong.”

    Interesting….So, you think he was faking it or….?

    You think he ran slow and lethargic on purpose so he could be sacked?

    And since when does McCarthy have injury details on a Monday? When he always claims he doesn’t know shit about anybody Mon- Fri. during the pressers.

    Is this the same genius that sent Lane Taylor running out of the field with no time outs after Nelsons catch?

    As i’ve previously stated, the return to Packer winning football, is also the return of Fat Mike, being a prick to a reporter asking a valid question at 6:24 into Mondays presser.

    I listened to that too. His arrogance is very telling. I wonder who he was looking at when he referenced “fantasy football”? I agree, the reporter asked a decent question! This guys arrogance shines as bright as the sun. What an asshat for browbeating that reporter. MM is a jerk who is so deluded about himself. Fuck that fucking fuck . . .

      I can’t wait until the day………..can’t come soon enough.

        I was riding that 4 game losing streak to that end. So….i guess we’ll wait and see if this season’s playoffs, turns out any different than the last 5 season’s playoffs.

          I agree. But hearing Murphy say that he would not do anything to those guys has kind of placed this whole coaching scenario in a holding pattern for a few more years . . . much to my dismay. So I feel conflicted about this seasons outcome. Glad that they are winning because I am a diehard Packer fan. But very disappointed that this coaching and management team will ride out Rodgers coattails to the end of their careers which effectively puts all of the burden of winning on Rodgers shoulders. If only Murphy had insight and some balls (even teenage sized balls) he would have made some moves . . . or at least compelled TT to get off of his ass. But to no avail . . . Squeak into the playoffs again, which I admit pleases me. But only to be shamed by another team because of the Packers poor coaching and TT’s horrible player procurement, which really fucking angers me.

            Yep, Mark did say that, and saying he wouldn’t fire anyone in a general statement, is grounds for his dismissal imo.

            As far as the 4 game losing streak with 6 games to go, it was starting to get pretty intense. Now imagine, if they lost 4 more games. All the articles and post on here would be far, far different. Outside of here, that would be all the media was writing and talking about, because it already started after the 3rd loss. Things would be intense and uncomfortable up in Green Bay for the big 3.

            As it should be PF4L . . . And as it still should be now. The media needs to grow some integrity and stop white washing everything and tell it like it is, regardless of the outcome. It may/might just have/will light a few fires under the “Holy Triumvirate’s” . . . asses.
