After running through Seneca Wallace, Scott Tolzien, and Matt Flynn as starting quarterbacks in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers and zero wins to show for it, the Packers are in a freefall and just waiting for Rodgers to return from his fractured left collarbone. If Rodgers' own timetable is correct, they won't have to wait another game. Rodgers told ESPN's Bob Holtzman on Thursday that he "thinks" he will be completely healthy before Green Bay's Dec. 8 matchup against the Falcons.
The Packers have gone 0-4-1 since Rodgers got hurt and have fallen a game and a half back of the first-place Lions in the NFC North.
Wallace got hurt. Tolzien was pretty bad. And Flynn was simply awful. The Packers have nowhere else to turn ... unless Brett ... no, it's OK. I won't go there. Rodgers would obviously elevate the fantasy value of every Packer in this offense. He can't return soon enough. Fantasy owners and the Packers need him for a late-season charge.
