Aaron Rodgers is cleared to play on Sunday...

... against the Bears, who broke his collarbone back in November.

AND: Not just cleared, but will start.
"We're in it. You know we have a chance against our rivals, and what a better way than to go down there and get some redemption and host a home playoff game," Rodgers said....
Redemption is a nice word. One could also say revenge.

And the Bears have stunk just enough to keep the Division in play. Thanks, Chicago!

My guess is that Rodgers gets his revenge. The Bears are awful on defense and Cutler will fold under pressure and I say this as a Bears fan.

No more 8 in the box from opposing defenses.

One could also say reinjure.

Whatever the dish, it will likely be served cold.

Gotta win the game first.

David said...

Ipso, Cutler might fold under pressure, but his team is so weak that the pressure on him is awfully high.

The Packers have a lot of weaknesses too, and I'm not counting my turkeys until my cows come home.

One could also say "steroids."

One month recovery?

Mike said...

Well, John Lynch he missed eight games so...math...I think it's been more than a month. I would have been cleared to return to work in a week, but then there are very few 300-LB guys chasing me with evil intent here either.

I have not seen a lopsided loss similar to what Da Bears suffered last week. They were terrible. They have to improve, but it will not be enough. The Stillers were fortunate to face Packer backup.

Unbelievably, the Stillers are still in it. Need a triple bank shot - Ravens, Chargers, and the Dolphins all to lose. Of course, they need to beat the hapless Browns.

John Lynch said...

ok.

Rodgersphobes!! Serves you right!

Original Mike said...

They also need Eddie Lacy to have a chance.

Vengeance sounds better.

Reminiscent of RG3 in last year's playoff loss to Seattle.

The Packers offensive line is awful. Rodgers is going to get hurt, again.

Seriously? You miss the Packers v.Lions on Thanksgiving? At obne point the Lions had 540 total yards to the Packers 54.

Humperdink said...

The Bears were down 21-0 before they got off the team bus. It was down hill from there.

But no, I did not see that Turkey day game.

MadisonMan said...

I'm afraid that mccullough's prediction is correct.

Potential fly in ointment: is the Bears' defensive line worse than the Packers' offensive line?

When the Bears played the Packers in Green Bay 60 fans got ejected and 13 got arrested. The action is in the stands not the field. I wonder how many will get ejected this sunday.
