Decision on Aaron Rodgers likely to come earlier this week

GREEN BAY–A decision on Aaron Rodgers’ availability for this Sunday’s game in Chicago will likely be announced earlier this week than it has in the past.

“Aaron Rodgers? A lot of conversation going on. Hopefully, we can get the question answered sooner than later,” Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said on Monday.

“Aaron wants to play. He fully accepts and understands everything that is going on with his injury. This is clearly a decision for Ted Thompson and I. I think it’s important for us to make a quicker decision.”

McCarthy was asked about the re-injury Clay Matthews sustained to his thumb on Sunday.

“His injury evaluation is still going on. I don’t have anything to report on Clay. The training staff didn’t feel very good about Clay,” McCarthy said.

    sit him for the rest of the year the way the defense is playing you cant win anyway why risk him getting hurt till next year when hopefully there is a whole new d that can stop a 3 yr old crawling with a ball in his hands

    Henry – you’re joking right? The faith some people have in this team is pathetic. Stop being so afraid to lose and accept that its seasons like these that make a team who they are. It makes them stronger and more feared. A team that can overcome adversity is much more fun to watch that a team that sits it’s starters because it’s afraid to lose and would rather wait til another year. There’s always a “next year”. Why not now?

    Worst case scenario, he re-injures it and has all off-season to rest up. Best case scenario, he leads the Packers into the playoffs on a run against teams that will include the 49ers and Seahawks, two teams we desperately need some retribution and payback against.

    If hes cleared to play YOU play him!!!! Once you get into the playoffs anything can happen. I think we proved that back in 2010. This year at least we would get one home game. The whole goal is to get to the superbowl doesnt matter how you got there the first 16 games it all depends what you do the mintue you get into the playoffs. Alot can happen years to come there might not be a next year or a year after. I mean look at the foolish lions for example.

    The packers have been doing more then what most people predicted without and Rodgers , they went through so much with out him and every game they come so close to winning or win. I believe with Rodgers they’ll have what it takes to win . And with Rodgers te team it self will have more confidence , Matt Flynn is great and had his moments but Rodgers is always great and now is he time to show it, he’s been on the side lines too long .

What a pathetic fan base. “Winning isn’t everything, its the only thing” We all know where that came from. Why in the heck would anyone want to give up when there’s a chance (although unlikely) but yet still a chance to go to the playoffs, win a couple games and get to the big show? Im with Ninja, you wanna quit and wait for next year, I bet Detroit has some open seats. GO PACK GO!!

    Interesting change in wording from Mike McCarthy. Since the injury, he has said AR is not “medically cleared” to play and that sitting him is an “organizational decision.” Today, McCarthy said, “This is clearly a decision for Ted Thompson and I. I think it’s important for us to make a quicker decision.” … He made no mention of the medical component today. I wonder what has changed.

    Everyone would love to see Rodgers come back, I know i would since he is so much fun to watch. These last few weeks have had a lot of amazing moments though, sure its hard to watch your team lose, but there were so many injuries back to back that you can hardly blame then. To all you Matt Flynn haters, he has been doing an amazing job, not just on the field but off of it as well, he isn’t just sitting there saying we only lost cause I’m a back up and we don’t have a team, he takes these thing personally and tries to improve on it. I was sad to see the loss on Sunday, but in the end we can still win, and we show our strength more and more every game. So yeah, we lost a few, but maybe its for the best, maybe most of the bandwagon and people with low spirits will go find another and not drag the Pack down.

    GO PACK GO!!!

    i think it wouldn’t matter if we win on sunday because we would be one game and done in the playoffs for one reason; the defense. the defense can’t make a stop to save their lives. so one would think that sitting Aaron is the way to go, but i think not.
    the Packers as a professional football club they have to TRY to win every game they play regardless of the situation; that means playing Rodgers. at least that is what i would do.
    Merry Christmas to you all and happy new year.
    Lets hope for a much improved in all aspects defense next year and not to have so many injuries.

THAT SAID, we’re the GREEN BAY PACKERS, our team doesnt rollover and quit because we dont think we can do it. if you would have told me even toward the end of 2010 that the pack was going to win it all i would have laughed at you… well… if he’s cleared START HIM!!!

    Rodgers is medically ok, but there is a rust factor, admittedly, unknown. suit him up but let Flynn start, and if the Bears show up without their D again, then the pack may not need him to step in for Flynn, but Rodgers could still be ready for the first playoff game in GB. Flynn is constantly improving, and he gained important experience this week on how to run without sliding, you have to cover up the ball in traffic. He gains valuable experience like that each week he plays.

    Next Sunday Rodgers will be approaching almost 8 weeks since fracturing his clavicle on his non-throwing arm. This is right at the average recovery time needed for such an injury. BOTTOM LINE: If Rodgers feels good to go, he should be starting against the Bears next week. The O-line will step up and Rodgers will get the chance to repay the Bears for ruining his season. The Packers are not a team that gives up and neither are there fans. The seasons not over, but it does come down to this Sunday’s game against the Bears. Fortunately, the Packers are in charge of their own destiny. It’s a no brainer, LET HIM PLAY. Oh yeah, Go Pack Go!

    It may an easier decision for TT this week because a win means a home game and more $$. Anyway these guys are paid to play and getting hurt is part of the game. Ar this time of year they all are hurting somewhere in their body. So let AR play, chances are slim of another injury and waiting until next year won’t guarantee he doesn’t get some other type injury and also doesn’t guarantee the team will have this chance again. So PLAY AND WIN!!!

    there is a difference between faith in a team and wishful thinking. The Packers have not shown any reason for fans to have faith that they could stop anyone. If you want to “hope” or “wish” the Pack can stop the Bears then go ahead. Just don’t have faith that they’ll do it.

    ESPN report says Rodgers is worried about further injury and asked the Packers to call it an “organizational decision”. He wants to control the message.

    Win or lose you try to do it with the best players you have available and Rogers gives you that chance. You do not sit someone to save them from getting hurt when the division is on the line. The o line has got to step up and realize how important it is to protect a quarterback like Rogers. While Matt Flynn is doing an ok job he does not give you the same quality of play that Aaron does. This is a must win game an giving up is not part of what the Packer Nation is all about. We need our best players on the field if they are able to be there and that includes Clay Mathews.

    We are the one team where we don’t have “owner’s pressure”. Accordingly, we get LEGITIMATE medical opinions where other teams don’t. This one’s simple: If the doctors say Rodgers is healed, play him. If not, the season’s over….But, really, how many of us thought that we’d still be in it with one game left without Rodgers for half a season? Not me. The defense is horrid. Flynn (bless his soul) throws like a girl. He’s might be more accurate than Tebow but that’s about it. We have no down-the-field threat when Flynn is in there because he can’t throw it more than 20 yards with any degree of accuracy. Hindsight is 20/20 but McCarthy should have been more aggressive in the first halves with Tolzien and let him throw more on first down. No rookie is going to play well starting each game down by 14. Flynn gave us a spark against the Vikings but, he has no upside…Which is why he got cut by three different teams…

    Besides that, this winter is starting out cold. If Rodgers can’t play, let the Bears get clobbered by the 49ers for a change.

    We’re at the end… the last game. There’s no more flirting with disaster. We must play our best players, and that means Aaron Rodgers at QB. We are fortunate to be where we’re at… just 1/2 game out of first, and one win from taking the division away from our most hated rival. This Sunday’s game has become the most important game of the year. If your life was dependent upon winning, wouldn’t you easily choose Aaron Rodgers to play, even if he was at 90% healed? For the past 2 weeks, McCarthy has said that Rodgers was throwing sharp. For me, that makes it a go for this Sunday, and if we must, we can use running plays, moving pockets, shotgun formations, and screens, to help protect Rodgers.

    Also… Clay Matthews has been sucking it up. He’s been playing with the right thumb not being fully healed. Now, it’s been re-injured the same way it was originally injured. If there is any way for Matthews to get on that field, he will be there, so don’t question his toughness.

    Be realistic. Most of our top players are on IR, plus we go into Chicago with no Mathews and Jolly. Chicago put Rogers out of the last game with a ‘full body weight’ tackle and their goal will be the same this game. No way the Pack can compete with the top teams even if they happen to beat Chicago. Better to let Rogers heal completely so he will be good for the long hall.

    Sorry to say but for those of us who have been Packer fans for 40 or more years, or that remember the 70’s and 80’s are not as pessimistic as those who have been fans during the winning years of the past 20 years. Everything dosen’t always go right. The defense is playing as well as you would like but it was worse in the early 80’s when we has to win by scores of 48-47 like against Washington on MNF.

    Play Aaron! I know the team is not very good this year (as they have thoroughly demonstrated). But the whole country would like to see what the best quarterback in the game can do in a situation like this?? Don’t put it past Rodgers to carry this team to another Super Bowl!! Take a shot at this thing!!!

    Nah, if he doesn’t play, he doesn’t play. 1 month is long enough, now we can joke about it. Simple as that. We’re idiots, remember? They made us believe it was a fracture, even without Aaron ever wearing any type of restrainment harnesses. I feel like a Griffin, hopefully Peter.

    And for all you complacent fans that believe what they tell you, try watching the past 8 weeks of football, really? Fracture???? Wow. Invisible braces must be the new trend to clavicles! Moving his arm in any way in the beginning must have made a jigsaw puzzle of the ways they set it, oops. They never set it did they? Nor did they brace it to any original position. But I’m just a conspirator.

    This is a management which sat Rodgers prior to 2011 playoffs, so I find it hard to believe they’ll allow him to play now. It didn’t work out well in 2011 and it won’t work out well now. Times like this I miss Lombardi (best players always on the field), and Ron Wolf (signed FAs when needed). The draft & develop and next man up strategies are a joke. I’d never boycott a Packers game, but next year will be painful to watch if Dom Capers is still around. 2 defensive drafts and we have mediocre talent to show for it.

    Bottom line, no matter who the quarterback is beat DA Bears and we win the division. Case closed. Time for the defense to step up otherwise it won’t matter if Aaron Rodgers plays or not. I believe the offense can beat anybody it’s the defense that worries me.

    I came to the conclusion that the Ted Thompson and the rest of management decided they couldn’t win and get in the playoffs but at the end of each week the last few weeks the Packers still find themselves in it.

    With the rising NFC teams the Packers need to act now. Our “D” is struggling but look win we won the Super Bowl against the Steelers and came back the next year as the number one seed only to lose to the Giants. So with nothing be certain and RIGHT NOW we have a chance to make the playoffs and get on a roll Rodgers needs to play.

    If we aren’t trying to tank the season, then he will play. If he doesn’t play this week then I guess the NFL is scripted.

    Aaron Rodgers must play sore or not sore. Life is about risk. Flynn is good but we need our best QB for the biggest game.
    Rodgers is not the GB franchise – Vince Lombardi made the historic Green Bay the franchise it is today. In honor and respect to Vince Lombardi GB need to rekindle his spirit to win for the team. Rodgers is a superstar QB but he is not Green Bay – like the rest of the team he needs to give his all to GB – to honor the great team that Vince Lombardi gave his entire self for. Rodgers must play.

    As much as I love watching him play, this is a medical decision first, if he is deemed unready I can live with that. If he goes back too early, gets reinjured, we will still be in same situation as now. Making playoffs is important, but making them doesn’t mean much if we still can’t get it together to make anything of it. It’s just not worth the risk. Rather watch a healthy ready team next year, and chalk this up to one of those years that just didn’t quite work out.
