In his Monday presser, Mike McCarthy says Matthews out a couple of weeks.


In Packers definitions, maybe he will be back by the playoffs. lol.


But I was impressed with Moses speed and determination on the edge. Couple that with Zombo coming back, Walden and maybe Perry coming back hopefully we can weather the absence of Matthews. ***** edit... Perry getting a second opinion, scratch him coming back... lol.****


But anytime Mike McCarthy or the Packers say a couple of weeks.. I cringe.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Bulaga's injury sounds, by the medical staff is still gathering information, like it could be significant. The little bit of depth would be used up in that case.

Boy this team is getting pounded again on the injury front.

man. Between the shitty calls by officials and the injuries they just can't seem to catch a break.

Guess that means the rest of the team steps it up 3 notches.

So we've lost both of our team leaders on D. Our #1 WR has been out for awhile now. Our #2 WR made one appearance and injured another part of his body. Our #1 RB may or may not be ready in time for the Playoffs. Our entire OL is VERY thin right now when it comes to depth.

Pretty amazing we're talking about Playoffs still. I think if any other team in the NFL had this all to deal with, they'd be Weeeee!!

Most teams can't win with 6, 7 or 8 starters out 2 games in a row. Pretty impressive.

And yet fans will piss and moan when the Packers fail to 'blowout' a team said fan feels is junior varsity level, completing forgetting this is the NFL.

Injury reporting rules are in place primarily to prevent organized criminal groups from having inside interest in and manipulating games.

It goes to the integrity of the game itself.

It also irritates me to be lied to.

Loss of CMIII to injury really sucks. Nearly all our division games occurring in the second half and we need this team ready to play. He better be 100% by the giants game. Wanna Box?

I do. Teams have been playing games with the injury reports ever since the institution of the Practice Squads.

of course it was. We were laughing at it. At least everyone should have been. the guy who wrote the article that I posted was just plain silly. it was only 3 weeks. Anything can happen in the next 14 weeks including the earth hit by a meteor.

This season sure has that 2010 feel to it. I try not to whine about injuries because I like to see what we have playing behind the starters. Brad Jones just might have found himself inside, and I don't think we've missed Woodson that much have we? We are still scoring over 20 a game without Jennings and a lackluster Finley. Is there any doubt we have the best GM in the business?

If fans of other teams read our forum, I'm sure they would call us a bunch of spoiled pussies, which of course - we are.

What more do you want? They don't always figure out how bad or lingering an injure is right away...

I honestly don't see a problem..

We can't lose another T.

And without Clay, Moses Walden and Zombo are gonna have to really step up. If Neal does a Cullen Jenkins impersonation, that would go a long way towards helping them out.

Yo guys let's take it down a notch. The last time we had to battle through this many injuries we had a bunch of guys step up and we won the fucking superbowl. So far this year we've lost a bunch of guys and we've had a bunch of guys step up again...you know what's left.

We may have had a bunch of injuries in 2010 also, but they were mostly isolated on defense, leaving the offense able to cover for them. Having both sides losing the number of players is much harder.

The good thing, is 2010, when we lost players, they were gone for the duration, this year we will get most of them back before season end.

Every other year, the even numbers, we get decimated. Remember '08?

Yes they did overcome all those injuries in 10. How many times has an NFL team been decimated with injuries and then won it all? Not very many. How many times has a contending team failed to make the playoffs or lost in the playoffs due in part to injuries? nearly every single year.

2010 was something special but it is in the past. Don't look for it to happen again because what they did was very rare.

With all of the injuries, the team has done far better than I gave them credit for, but damn, how much more do we have to go through?! Get well soon, guys!

I'm not being a turd with this question, I'm really not sure how it works....so here goes...

As far as the "2nd opinion" deal. I'm guessing that the first opinion is the team physician? And when they don't like his diagnosis, they go to an outside source? Just wondering. And thank God Jennings did so...a hernia is a tad different than your garden variety "groin" injury I would think.
