Whoever we pick up at qb (if we do) will still look 10 times better than the three headed crap fest in Minnesota.

But Seneca is not the answer.

I believe the implication is that by the time we get to the playoffs there are going to be so many backups in key positions that the quality of the games will suffer.

Ask yourself this, Cheeseheads: Which QB will win you more games, Seneca Wallace or Tim Tebow? Logical dictates the former, but history tells us that when Tebow actually gets a real chance to play, as he did for half a season in Denver, then Tim Tebow is most certainly a winner.

Most sources are saying 3 weeks, and indefinitely only means they don't know how long because it could be 3-8 weeks depending on the fracture. Some sources say it is just a hairline fracture, which would mean 3 weeks, but Packers are mum about it

FTFA:

"There has not been any timetable that's been talked about," Rodgers said. "There has been nothing talked about with doctors, myself, anyone who represents me, my family. Reports are silly. [I'm] holding out hope that it's a quick heal. But it's a significant injury."

From the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons:

Outcome

Whether your treatment involves surgery or not, it can take several months for your collarbone to heal. It may take longer in diabetics or people who smoke or chew tobacco.

Most people return to regular activities within 3 months of their injury. Your doctor will tell you when your injury is stable enough to do so. Returning to regular activities or lifting with your arm before your doctor advises may cause your fracture fragments to move or your hardware to break. This may require you to start your treatment from the beginning.

Once your fracture has completely healed, you can safely return to sports activities.


If his bone is actually fractured, it seems unlikely that he'll be playing again 25 days after fracturing it.

That would be pretty insane. While I've never had it happen myself, I've had 3 friends break their collarbones at different times. Each one has said it was one of the worst pains they've ever experienced.

It depends on the size of the fracture. I have heard the pain is immense, but if it is just a hairline fracture, it is a much faster healing process. I bruised a rib once; horrible pain (second only to a lat strain, oh my god was that torture). Cracked ribs take longer to heal (twice as long, so 2 months) and completely broke ribs take an additional month to heal.

Yea, no.  It ain't happening.  Tony broke his and missed 8 games.  Peckerheads are done unless they can get a QB with a clue.  Cuz it ain't Seneca Wallace.

Stop farking bringing up Tebow and Favre, There is no farking way we will bring either one of them in. For farks sake. This is just a circle jerk for all of the unwashed farking masses that view espn as the holy grail of farking football news. Yeah, we're probably farked without #12 at QB but jesus farking christ on a goddamn cracker, let's try and not go full derp so soon. By the way Favre is 44, one hit from Suh or Peppers and he's farking wheelchair bound. And when will Tebow stop being a thing every time a QB gets cut or injured? Become a FB or TE OR get the fark outta here with your sidearm shiat.

Considering that Aaron Rodgers has said that he, his doctors, and the Packers all have no idea how long he'll be out and no one has discussed a timetable, subby's and Cheese Weasel's speculation is just as good as the Milawukee Journal Sentinel's.

I fractured a collarbone when I was in elementary school and I don't remember it being that bad. But that was a long time ago so it's hard to judge. It definitely wasn't as bad as when I had muscle spasms in my neck. That was a nightmare

Assuming that Rodgers is going to be out for an extended period of time  (2-3 months, which is possible), right now, the teams most likely to go to the playoffs:
AFC North Bengals
AFC East Patriots
AFC South Colts
AFC West Chiefs
AFC WC Broncos
AFC WC Chargers or Jets or a team that gets hot down the stretch

NFC North Lions or Bears
NFC East Cowboys
NFC South Saints
NFC West Seahawks
NFC WC 49ers
NFC WC One of Lions, Bears, Carolina

Houston and Washington are all but eliminated at this point.
