CHICAGO -- The Green Bay Packers hoped quarterback Aaron Rodgers' return would have a positive impact on Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

But this probably isn't what they had imagined.

Rodgers, in his first game since he broke his collarbone on Nov. 4, helped the Packers to a touchdown -- but not with his arm or his legs. Instead, he did it by telling receiver Jarrett Boykin to pick up a live ball and run it into the end zone after he was sacked in the second quarter by Julius Peppers.

CHICAGO -- The Green Bay Packers took a 10-7 lead over the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Soldier Field under a freakish set of circumstances. But ultimately, the play came as the result of failure by the home team to play heads-up football.

Yeah Troy and Joe kept saying he heard the coaches on the sidelines yelling. It was obvious he didn't start to run until Aaron Rodgers told him

To me it looked like Rodgers was unsure if the ball was alive or not.


To me it looked like Rodgers told Boykins to hold onto the ball, as Rodgers looked over to the refs to figure out what was going on, Boykins looked over to the sidelines and figured it out and took off slight before Rodgers figured it out.

Jarrett Boykin said:
I saw a defender run over to the ball so I thought I might as well run over there, too. He didn’t pick it up, so I picked it up, and A-Rod told me to go and I just went. He said, ‘Just go. Run, run.’ Somebody did. I think he was the closest one.

Boykin is just trying to give credit to Rodgers. That's not how it went down for reals.

I have been wondering if the QB communication had been turned back on thinking the play was over as well.

I was watching the side judge who didn't leave his spot which is what was my hint that the ball was still live. Good thing the Bears LBer missed when he tried to pick the ball up.

uffda udfa (1h) : The hug on the sidelines?
uffda udfa (1h) : What seemed so emotional?

uffda udfa (6h) : They'll need all the Julio Joneses they can get.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Chmura: "I'll tell you this: Atlanta's going to score 40 points. They are. The #Packers are going to have to score 41."
Zero2Cool (11h) : Damn-Falcons coach Dan Quinn tells reporters that WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited this week but will be “ready to rock” on Sunday.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Packers defense has a red zone INT in each of the last 3 games... Hyde with two of them. (One being the clutch 4thQ INT vs DET in Week 17)
Zero2Cool (13h) : Randall Cobb, Damarious Randall, Quentin Rollins, James Starks, Clay Matthews, Ty Montgomery & Jared Cook. OUT
