GREEN BAY—Friday will once again be decision day for the Packers on Aaron Rodgers, but judging from the quarterback’s tone of voice in a brief media session at his locker on Thursday, Rodgers isn’t expecting the decision to go his way.

Asked if he has a sense whether or not he’ll receive medical clearance to play on Sunday against Pittsburgh, Rodgers answered in rather emotionless and subdued fashion, “I have a good sense of what’s going to happen, yes.”


It was not said in a hopeful manner.

I don't trust this medical staff at all, I would love to know why they are holding him out. This bullshit of we don't want to lose him for the off season, really now really I can't believe I heard that today. Lets throw the season away just so Rodgers is healthy for his off season. Lets see Cobb breaks his leg and is back after 9 weeks but yet a collarbone is going to take 7 weeks and kill our Playoff hopes. I guess Ted Thompson is trying to get some trade bait out of Flynn. If we lose this week why even bring Rodgers back against the Bears?

I said essentially the same thing a couple of days ago.

In the old days, there was none of this medical clearance crap. If the guy could move around and do the job and the team needed him, he played - period. It's bad enough when it's a concussion, and they have some God damned lawsuit to worry about, but a collarbone?

Fact that Matt Flynn is a free agent after this season pretty much nullifies your entire theory.

Nevermind that it would be hard for Flynn's stock to rise significantly higher than it is post largest comeback in Packer history with just one or two more games.

How's this?

Aaron Rodgers said:
It’s tough to be so close last week and not be able to play, But we’re right in this thing, Matt is playing well, and I’m back on the practice field, so the frustration level is going down.


So close last week ... how can that not be eliminated now with the Packers playoff hopes in their own hands? Oh yeah, playoff position holds no ground on the decision.

Saving Rodgers for "next" year makes it seem like playoff opportunities are taken for granted by the organization.

#1. In the "old days", there were not $120mil players.

I'm not saying I agree with it, but NFL franchises have to protect these guys.
One or two bad decisions can set a franchise back 5 years.

Maybe The Packers are gambling on Matt Flynn, one more week, maybe not, I guess we will all find out tomorrow when The Official announcement is made.

I'm not very patient, but what else it there to do but wait?

Whatever happens tomorrow, there will be a game on Sunday.

That's about the only thing I am positive about at this moment.

Hopefully if it is Flynn who plays Sunday, the offense can have a little success in the 1st half.

This falling behind by 2 or 3 scores (or 4), then coming back to win, although entertaining, it is getting a little stressful.

I'm not sure what you heard today but I don't think the medical staff gives a shit about losing him for the off season or anything other than they don't think the injury is healed enough for him to play. What could they possibly have to gain by not clearing him unless you are one of the conspiracy freaks that thinks they are in on some bigger plot to keep the Packers out of the playoffs. Or perhaps you think McCarthy or maybe Thompson or someone is secretly instructing the doctors not to clear him (which could be a possibility) In that case they would be following their boss's instructions.

There are a lot of people, some medically trained and some not who have always felt that Rodgers was done for the season. These are people who had no inside information or other first hand knowledge of the injury. They are basing their opinions on the nature of the the injury that is a fractured collarbone. If they can have this opinion is is so much of a stretch to think that maybe, just maybe, the injury is not healed enough to allow him to play.

I am sure they are tired of Rodgers and perhaps McCarthy and maybe even Thompson and who know who else that are clamoring for them to clear him. If they were going be considered untrustworthy they would cave to the pressure rather than stand up to it.

You guys HAVE to click the link above in the first post and watch the video of Aaron Rodgers. He's deflecting all questions to McCarthy. When asked what needs to be seen medically for him to get clearance via medical, ask McCarthy. And then McCarthy says Rodgers looks ready to play.

I think this is all setting up as a poker face. Make Steelers believe Rodgers will be out there and then trot out Flynn for the win.

Yeah, for his stock to rise he would probably have to throw for 460 yards and 6 TDs against a divisional opponent in the last game of the season and we all know that is impossi...hey now there's an idea.
