Green Bay got bad news on Friday when Aaron Rodgers was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, but Packers coach Mike McCarthy pointed out that "bad news' isn't the same thing as devastating news.

The media want to portray this season as "the season of our backup QB position." But it's really the season of our shit sucking run defense.

(and it was a little surprising that a reporter actually asked McCarthy if the Packers could beat the Steelers with Flynn),

A little surprising? I've heard reporters ask some pretty stupid questions but if one actually did ask a question phrased in a way asking Mike McCarthy if he thought the Packers could beat the Steelers with Matt Flynn the guy must be been stupid or stoned or both. That moron should have his press credentials revoked.

What the hell are you talking about? When Rodgers went down, the Packers were the 5th ranked rushing defense.

Isn't that the point? The most noticeable impact of the injury was the complete collapse of the defense in the following two games.

Edit: This may have just been sarcasm in which case i am just slow on the take.

Wasn't The most noticeable impact of the injury that the offense couldn't move the ball, and when they did they turned it over?

I'm not giving the defense a pass this season, but this crap about blaming ONLY the defense for The Packers not winning in November is just that CRAP!

The NFL today is all about scoring points!!!!

When a teams offense does not produce points, sooner or later the defense is going to break down.

That's all in the past, all I know is The 2013 Packers have 2 games left in the regular season, they win them and all this lamenting about November will be a faint bad memory.

That's just MHO of course, I tend to try to dwell on the positive(2 game winning streak), and look foward not backward. [laughing]

It was just strange how the D went from top 5 to bottom 5 right around the time that 12 got the bone. We did however lose our entire LB core at the same time though so maybe not a total coincidence. So damn tired of the injuries.

Take a look at thr rb's The Packers faced, and how many yards they gave up.

The night Aaron went down, it was Matt Forte, he managed to go over 100, but that is pretty normal for him.

Then The Eagles, well Shady McCoy is having a pretty good year, he is putting up numbers on almost every team.

Next it was The Giants, Defense held them to if not less than 100 it was close.

The real "collapse", didn't come until The Vikings, then the absolute disaster at Detroit.

That would be game 4 and 5 of the 5 games in a 25 day stretch.

I would post numbers, but if I did, the doom and gloom club would accuse me of "statistical masturbation" so I would ask you to go ahead and look up the actual numbers.

Many variables went in to the "collapse", Rodgers was just one, but probably the one with the most effect.

Isn't it peculiar how The Run Defense has seemed to get better( less than 100 yds against Atlanta, around 135 yds against Dallas), when the offense under Matt Flynn finally started to click and The Packers controlled the ball and scored.

Doesn't matter how good or bad the defense has been up until now, what matters is THE NEXT 2 GAMES.

The 2013 season will not be defined untill it is over.

sschind (4h) : how soon before teams start asking players to violate policy so they can keep them on the team and not have to countthem on the active roste
steveishere (6h) : I don't think suspended players count toward the 53
uffda udfa (14h) : Incredible! Wilde's 53 man roster doesn't even have Datone Jones as "IN"...he's "looking good". Sad, a 3rd year 1st rounder isn't a lock f

uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
