Aaron Rodgers Shows Off His Arm Prior to Game
Aaron Rodgers did some physical training before Sunday night’s Packers-Steelers game. It included a long toss where Rodgers showcased his arm, and what strength he had at this time. Rodgers sent deep about 55 yards which all gave Packers nation one big eye emoji. No one including Rodgers knows if he’s truly healthy or not at this point as the Packers quarterback opted for less x-rays since he’s on IR until the third week in December. It does give Packers fans hope, but Green Bay needs to win ball games for a chance at a Rodgers’ return.

It’s pretty short and simple if Green Bay wants to see the return of Rodgers, they need to win the next two games. Tampa Bay and Cleveland are two of the worst teams in football, so the challenge might not be as difficult as its been the last couple of weeks. That said if the Packers were to go 1-1 and be 6-7, we will not see Rodgers the rest of the way. With the way the NFC looks right now, there’s a very slim chance that 9-7 will make you a playoff team this season. Other years, there might be some room for error, but this is not one of them.
Regardless, it’s good to see Rodgers out there again on the football field. He looked comfortable chucking it down field, and I bet he wanted an opportunity against this Pittsburgh defense.
