Wednesday might be important day in Rodgers’ future

GREEN BAY–Wednesday might be a watershed day toward the prospect of Aaron Rodgers returning to action this week. The Packers host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

“Aaron Rodgers’ situation will be evaluated Wednesday morning and we’ll have a plan for him on Wednesday,” Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday when asked what the plan is for Rodgers this week. “We’re game-planning right now for Matt Flynn.”

Rodgers has been out of action since Nov. 4, when he sustained a fractured left collarbone on the first drive of a game against the Chicago Bears.

“Randall Cobb’s workout today was very good. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow,” McCarthy added.

    I’ll be so glad when the team gets healthy again. I really was expecting the Cowboys to win yesterday, I’m so glad they didn’t !!!!! :) Go Packers

    PS I just read about Randall Cobb it sure would be nice to see him back healthy and ready to get er done !!! :)

    That would be great to see Randall Cobb on the playing field. Everyone getting back healthy is a good sign. Go Pack.

    Do we really want to change the momentum at this point? I want Rodgers back, but only when he’s fully healed. Broken bones need time to fully mend, and if Rodgers gets that aggravated or re-injured, there goes his career and the possibility of maybe three more Conference and/or Super Bowl wins over his current contract. Let Matt at least take GB into the play-offs first, then bring Rodgers back and sign Matt up for a few more years and use them both in the games!! This one qualified QB for the season is about as stupid as stupid can get.

    I believe Rodgers is healthy but since they are winning with Flynn. They will try to keep him out until playoffs. I mean why didn’t they scan him on Friday to see if he was healthy enough. Rodgers sure seemed sure of himself on Thursday.

  8. By Brian on Dec 16, 2013 | Reply

    If Rodgers is healthy, he plays. To think otherwise is just plain foolhardy.

    Please do not drag this out another week. If Rogers cannot play this weeek just go ahead and decide now..

    When Rodgers is cleared by McKenzie he’ll play. McKenzie will clear him when all the medical protocols are met. There is no hidden agenda here.

    Let’s not kid ourselves, if Rodgers doesn’t come back this week the Pack aren’t going to make it to the playoffs. If not for Dallas fielding basically the University of Texas Longhorn defense (or worse) our season is over. Pittsburgh will be an upgrade this Sunday.

    @Brian in Florida, a broken collar bone, or rebroken collar bone, is not a career ending injury. I think you would be hard pressed to find a single player who’s career ending injury was listed as “broken collar bone”. The only thing he can do is re-break it, and at that point his season is over, and he’ll have the rest of the offseason to heal. While I feel that he needs to make sure he’s fully healed so that he doesn’t risk longer recovery time (Cutler anyone?), you don’t have to worry about him risking his career coming back.

    We need the Lions to lose tonight and then take care of Pittsburgh and Chicago. That tie with Minnesota may come back to haunt us….We need a healthy Rodgers back on the field for the final two games. Cobb would also be a huge plus to have back for the stretch run.

    The best chance the Packers have to get into the post season is a win by the Ravens tonight. That happens and there will be no looking back. Yes, the lions would have two games left to play and anything can happen, but the
    Ravens are the only team that NEEDS the win. If the Ravens pull this off, you can bet your @ss we’ll see Rodgers on Sunday and there’s a solid chance of a playoff appearance.
    But, I agree, this drama with Rodgers every week is getting old.

  29. By Cam on Dec 16, 2013 | Reply

    To be totally honest, I don’t even care if we don’t make the playoffs. We’ve lost a lot of good players this year, and I don’t want to make it worse by reinjuring Aaron Rodgers. We still have a great team that will be even better by next year. Lacy will be even more of a veteran running back, Rodgers will be healthy and maybe, God willing, Bulaga will finally be healthy. But given all of the important injuries this year, I just can’t see us going that far in the playoffs.

    We really need Aaron back & Randall would be a big plus but Please don’t risk their careers. Both of these men have great careers in front of them & it would be irresponsible to risk them on 1 season. There is always next season> I have been a fan since the Bart Starr days & would love to see us go all the way but not at the risk of losing either one of these guys.

  32. By Larry in Texas on Dec 16, 2013 | Reply

    While I am ecstatic the Packers were able to come back from 26-3 down, I ask Packers fans to tap the brakes, because this team has a LONG way to go before the playoffs. The Steelers will not be an easy game. The team has gotten off to a poor start in the first half of each of the last three games, and I don’t think that you can come back in every game like the one here in Dallas and the one against Atlanta (of course, we did NOT come back against Detroit). The run defense remains poor, and I have no idea why because the defense hasn’t suffered the kinds of injuries that the offense has suffered. The defense has to turn it around and play all four quarters consistently. Otherwise, even if Rodgers comes back next week, even he won’t be able to save the team.

    Hopefully, the Ravens will take care of business tonight and knock off the Lions for us.

    I say we run with flynn I wasn’t real excited to see him take the field again wearing the Greenbay colors. But he is doing a good job and the momentum is there. lets go to the superbowl. The real Duane Greenbay.

  34. By SK on Dec 16, 2013 | Reply

    And if the Packers beat the Vikings instead of just tying them, their playoff situation would be exactly the same. They’d still be way out of the wildcard race. They’d still trail the Lions in terms of division record. They’d still trail the Bears because of the head-to-head loss.

    Going for two was the right call. If you want to complain about things that don’t matter anyway, they should have tried to score a TD in OT rather than kicking the FG.

    Rodgers has a life that will outlive his time with the Pack. Glad they’re letting him heal completely before letting him back out on the field.

    @Larry in Texas.

    You do not know what the problem with the GB defense is? It all starts at the top and falls apart even more as you go down. GB needs a true game impacting player on the d-line or linebacker position. Right now they have none.

  38. By Debbie Downer on Dec 16, 2013 | Reply

    I hate to say it but this is a team in decline. Ted Thompson is an incompetent psychopath and Mike McCarthy should be working at an auto parts store. The fact that they can win a game here and there shows you that Rodgers is just a system quarterback.

    The scenario is simple, Lions lose one game, Pack wins final two, Pack is in. We play Bears last game so it really don’t matter what they do against Philly if we beat em. It’s all about us winning and Detroit losing 1 game.

    Bahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!! And Vince Lombardi was an average coach with great players. And Peyton Manning’s numbers are inflated because the air is thin in Denver, or else he’d be washed up. And the Patriots are on the decline too (that started 5-6 years ago). C’mon man! SMH.

    I think it is nuts to talk about; well if AR breaks it again he has the whole off-season to take surgery, get better, etc. C’Mom Man. I would never be that selfish as a fan to risk that, I like AR too much to ever even suggest he go threw something like that. When he is ready, he plays. In the meantime the Def. has to step up, Matt has to step up, our line has to step up (oh by the way they need to all the time anyways)

    I want to see my team win, that is foremost. Again, Flynn has done an outstanding job and has proven to be very capable and driven, if Rodgers needs another week, let him get perfectly healed; Rodgers is our QB and we will see many playoffs in his future. Get well Aaron

    Rodgers will miss the rest of the season. The Packers will lose both of their remaining games and miss the playoffs. Every player in a contract year will jump ship like rats in a fire. The new seating section at Lambeau will suffer a freak collapse on a bleak night in January. The franchise will fold.

    So, all day I been watching NFL network, and ALL they have been talking about is DALLAS! Dallas is imploding, Bryant walking out with a minute left, Coach Garrett throwing Romo under a bus, will Dallas bounce back….blah blah blah. Not ONCE did they mention the other team on the field, you know, the team that TOOK that game from Dallas! Look, Dallas did “give” that game away, BUT, the Packers also responded after the half and I think it was more Packers taking it then Dallas giving it. Alot of other teams would not have come back to win that game, 5 possessions and 5 TD’s. Give credit where it’s due. Forget about the Cowboys. We are getting healthy at the right time. GO PACK GO!!

    I want to see Aaron Rodgers play again, but if its Matt Flynn that’s fine hope they win their last 2 games and see what happens from there I’m really impressed that they came back from a 23 point halftime deficit to get a huge a win over the Callas Cowboys yeterday keeping their playoff hopes alive

    With the Lions losing last night, the Packers have control of their own destiny. Just beat the Steelers and the Bears, and they’re in. It feels good to be able to say that, and us fans are beginning to see the grand possibilities.

    If that isn’t enough to pressure the Doc into clearing Rodgers, nothing will.

    Come on people, this is not just about a QB. It takes the whole team to do the job. Defense making tackles and turnovers. Offense making catches, blocking giving the QB time to work. I saw two teams Sunday. Green Bay stepped up and did what they as a TEAM was supposed to. I want Rodgers back like the rest, BUT I want him healthy. GO PACK! Work together as a well oiled machine.

    Another week without Rodgers and us Playing the Steelers. I don’t expect Pittsburg to implode like Dallas. If Rodgers plays, what better Christmas present could the fans expect? Let Aaron play this game and another week against Chicago, and his collarbone will be made of steel. Even so, Flynn has shown impressive improvement.
