Aaron Rodgers on Trial Return
That’s a convenient designation, isn’t it? If the Green Bay Packers don’t beat the craptacular Cleveland Browns this week, it doesn’t matter does it?
That is, whether quarterback Aaron Rodgers comes back this year. If Brett Hundley can’t beat the Browns, the season is over and Brett Hundley should never take a snap for a football team for the rest of his life, unless it’s his local flag football team and he’s playing with soccer moms.
This is the week we find out something, but what is that something?
Here’s what we know for starters. Rodgers will be back at practice with a potential return against the Carolina Panthers in week 15 in play. Rodgers will be running the scout team offense this week.
Hundley will be pretending he’s a real NFL quarterback and running the No. 1 offense for one more week. At least one more week.
McCarthy on Rodgers practicing: He's in the rehab trial return. That's what he'll be this week. Scout team work is something he will do. The drill work. Important he feel speed of game.He's not cut loose to practice everything.

So Aaron Rodgers is not being cut loose. Would we expect him to be?
But he’s on track, isn’t it?
And then the question becomes this. If and when Aaron Rodgers masks all of the considerable faults of Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy, does anything happen to those clowns?
Here’s what I’d bet. That Ginger Gap Tooth motherfucker, Mark Murphy, will just put on blinders and be like, well, we had one of the best playoff runs in NFL history. These are highly successful people who have only succeeded because of one single man, but they are highly successful, nonetheless!
Can’t argue with that perfect logic! And I bet that’s exactly what happens.
