The Green Bay Packers’ medical staff may not have wanted him to come back, but guess who’s back? Aaron Rodgers is back!
Rodgers announced that he had been cleared himself on Tuesday night.
Rodgers was said to be at 80 percent healed from his broken collarbone earlier in the day. It was also said he could play without risk of further injury because of the plates he had inserted on his collarbone when he had surgery. Of course, we also knew he wanted to play.
From what we’ve gathered, there is no long-term injury risk for Rodgers. If he were to suffer another broken collarbone, the break could really only be on either side of where the plates were placed.
So let’s roll!
The Green Bay Packers are on the outside of the playoff race looking in, but if they win out and get a little help, they have a shot. And that best shot comes with AR at the helm.
It starts with beating the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Your panties just got wet and the rest of the NFL just shit themselves.
So it’s settled then…..
The Packers are going to get all hands on deck, for the Grand Prize of getting to the playoffs. Notice i said playoffs, not Super Bowl.
I think the majority of well informed Packer fans realize that the Super Bowl is a pipe dream. Hell, getting into the playoffs might be a pipe dream. But if someone can win out, it’s Rodgers. Then it’s in some other teams hands to make that playoff dream possible.
The question now is will we see the same Aaron Rodgers, the deadly accurate sharp shooter who won’t give up on making a play until the very last millisecond.
Or will we see a mere mortal who hasn’t played in a competitive game for over 2 months? Will we see Rodgers give up on a play earlier than normal to avoid getting his clavicle shattered into pieces like a can of broken cashews?
I’m not sure of any of the above. But i’m damn sure about one thing. That if the Packers make the playoffs, we will hear from the likes of McCarthy, TT, and Murphy about getting to the playoffs 9 years in a row, and how that defines success.
There go my dreams of no more McCarthy…Stupid Browns had to blow it.
I’m glad he’s back.
Packers have done better without him than I thought they would so, commendations.
I can never root for the Packers to lose just so they can move up a couple of spots in the draft. The season just got more interesting. Go Pack go!
I mean, I guess if he can’t reinjure it worse. They are running out of chances with Rodgers. People do win the lottery
The commenters on here surprise me. The Packers’ roster is good enough to win 3 road games without AR…
The NFC is strong. But do Nik Foles, Case Keenum (Dome), & Jared Goff (L.A.) really scare you? We can beat those teams.
“He isn’t fully healed!” … well at any point in the NFL, on any play, a QB can get hurt & go to IR. It literally happen to 7-10 QBs every single season. So what? Never play Rodgers ever?
Dude, you play him. No doubt. You pay him lots of $. He is 34. He has about 5 more top-end seasons left.
Worse scenario is he reinjures his collarbone & heals for 3 months in the offseason. So what? Season over if he gets hurt, yes. But season over if he doesn’t play. Don’t quit, ever. This feels like 2010 all over again. We didn’t quit then with all those guys on IR. 16-18 IR players…I forget
1 more thing…. he WANTS to play…&… he is pissed off. GPG. Run the table & R-E-L-A-X
I love you guys….LETS DO THIS!!!!
They won two road games. Against teams a combined 4-22. The other was at home against Tampa, a 4-9 team. I mean, I am rooting for them. But this team is broken, this is not 2010. The 2010 team had a top 5 defense, that was one of the top pass rushing defenses. The 2010 team had Charles fucking Woodson and his leadership on the defensive side of the ball. It is an insult to that team to compare this team to that one. Just like every packers team since then that has been compared to it.
