We'll Be OK

We're going to be all right.

Make no mistake about it, the Aaron Rodgers loss is huge. HUGE. He may be more important than any one guy on a single team in the NFL.

But this has happened before.  In 2010 Rodgers was out of action with a concussion near the end of the season.  You may recall that the Packers went on to win the Super Bowl.  We not only survived we found a way to thrive.

Late this afternoon Packers Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed to reporters that Rodgers has a broken collarbone.  The good news is that Rodgers will be evaluated on a week to week basis and could be ready to return sooner rather than later.

“I’m relieved,” McCarthy told reporters  Then McCarthy was asked if this weekend was a possibility. “Let’s not kid ourselves,” he said.  “If he walked in your office and asked for the ball, what would you do?”

It is highly unlikely that A-Rodg will play this weekend or next weekend. But it appears likely that He will be ready for the second go around with both the Lions and the Bears.  Those two games will likely decide who wins the NFC North.

It’s still, obviously terrible news that Rodgers will miss any time. But I feel a lot better right now than I did a few hours ago.

We’re going to be all right.
