Packers prepping for life without Rodgers?

Okay, "life without" is strong, since Aaron Rodgers should be back sooner than later from his concussion, but there's at least a decent chance that he misses the Miami game this weekend, and the Packers are preparing for that by giving Matt Flynn more than his normal number of reps with the first team.

Although Flynn doesn't think there's anything really THAT wrong with Rodgers.

"He seemed normal," Flynn said. "We were talking, having a normal conversation, playing cards this morning. He doesn’t seem foggy or cloudy or anything."

(Quick aside: I did a lot of chuckling over the obvious notion that a) Flynn really, really, really wants Rodgers to be healthy and the probably-not-true-theory that b) while Rodgers is in a concussed state, Flynn's convincing him to play cards and robbing him blind.)

QB coach Tom Clements also referred to Rodgers as "very lucid" throughout the whole process of getting his bell rung, so that's good news, but no one should expect to see him back at practice before Thursday or Friday at the earliest, and still worry a little bit about Rodgers playing on Sunday.

"It’s definitely possible," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said of Rodgers missing a game. "I know at a minimum he’ll miss some practice time."

On the bright side, Rodgers being sidelined might finally beat the "YOU REALLY SHOULD CONSIDER HAVING A DECENT RUNNING GAME" message everyone's been sending McCarthy's way into his head.

Rodgers will play you can bet your life on it! Don't think for one minute he's sitting out especially now that their a game down in the division. McCarthy would have him play even if he was in a wheelchair!

People need to get off Rodgers about having not won a playoff game yet. He has only been the starter TWO SEASONS!

P.S. The lions are 1-4 man.  Stats and production don't equal wins in the NFL and success is measured by wins.  At least compare younger players on a team with a winning record next time.

gman terrific point.  Even back in the 70s and 80s they were shooting guys up with all kinds of crap to keep them going.  Half of those guys can barely walk now.  In this day and age, players get suspended for diet pills and weed.
