In their loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers put forth one of their worst offensive performances of the Aaron Rodgers era. Their run game was nonexistent, many of Rodgers’ passes were off and their wide receivers dropped too many catchable balls.
It’s felt like an eternity for Packers fans, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers will return to the playing field this Sunday for the first time since breaking his left collarbone in Green Bay’s Week 9 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced during his morning press conference on Thursday that “It’s time for Aaron to play.”
Chris Mortensen, NFL correspondent and seasoned teleprompter-reader, did his segment on ESPN Sunday morning suggesting Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy as a possibility for the vacant head coaching position at the University of Texas.
On Wednesday afternoon Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that quarterback Aaron Rodgers would miss the team’s Thanksgiving Day clash with the Detroit Lions and backup Matt Flynn will start in his place.
We are guilty as charged. For years now we have been brainwashed into believing the Green Bay Packers are far superior to their NFC North rivals. Lets look at the last 21 NFL seasons. In 336 regular season games, the Packers have won 214 times, while the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears have 184 and 161 wins, respectively.
