For a team that has been decimated by the injury fairy, the Packers still looked like strong playoff contender going into last night’s game against the Bears. But then the injury fairy, apparently unsatisfied with the destruction it had already wreaked, sunk its teeth into our star quarterback. After Rodgers left the field, the Packers could hardly buy a first down. Backup quarterback Seneca Wallace couldn’t be expected to coordinate the offense like Rodgers does, but he doesn’t seem to possess the skill necessary to be even a middling replacement.
Twitter sources state that Rodgers may miss 3 weeks with a collarbone fracture. That may not be a fatal blow to the team’s playoff chances, but the Packers must figure out how to win the next few games with a C-list QB.
