Halfway through the NFL season the Packers are having their ticket out of the playoff written by the injury bug. Having lost Aaron Rodgers to a collarbone injury, things were looking bleak for Green Bay as Seneca Wallace took over and immediately ground the gears on the Green Bay offense.
Sunday in Green Bay it got even worse. Wallace went out with a groin injury and the Eagles took advantage. Nick Foles continued his hot streak with three touchdown and Philadelphia, who can’t win at home, evened their record to 5-5.
What happens now? Bottom line? The Packers have to find some way to hold their ground until Rodgers can get back on the field. That isn’t going to be an easy task. The Packers will have to rally around Scott Tolzien, the number 3 man in the lineup. Tolzien filled in fairly well after Wallace went out but let’s face it, the Green Bay Packers are built around Aaron Rodgers and his talents.
BUT, Green Bay faces the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings in the next two weeks before having to meet the Detroit Lions. It’s not out of the question that the Packers could find a way to win those games, hold their ground, and get a run going when Rodgers gets back. Don’t throw in the towel on the Green Bay Packers just yet.Eric Drouant
