$.10 After NFL Week 6
by Jeff Risdon
Oct 15, 2017 11:48 PM

$.01—It wasn’t the most compelling game of the week, but the Green Bay/Minnesota tilt wound up being the one with the most significance on the rest of the NFL season. That’s because Aaron Rodgers left the game with a broken right (throwing) collarbone early on in the Vikings 23-10 home win.

Rodgers is now out at least six weeks, and that’s an absolute best-case scenario. If he needs surgery to repair the broken shoulder, his season is over.

The Packers have done a remarkable job of overcoming injuries with the “next man up” philosophy, but there is no one next man who can fill Rodgers’ shoes. The perennial MVP candidate is perhaps the most irreplaceable talent in the league. Rodgers is the reason all those other “next men up” for the Packers over the years have thrived. Right tackles come and go –and will come again with Bryan Bulaga sidelined again with a concussion–, running backs rotate in and out like Kardashian boyfriends, receivers pop up like whack-a-mole targets, and it all works for Green Bay because of Rodgers. He’s arguably the best quarterback in the last 25 years, and he’d win that argument for me.

Now the Packers must turn to Brett Hundley at quarterback. If Sunday is any indication, they’re in deep trouble. Hundley barely completed half his passes and threw 3 INTs as Minnesota’s defense smothered the Green Bay offense, holding them to just 14 first downs and 227 total yards. Green Bay finally got all the key pieces back in the lineup, from RB Ty Montgomery to WR Jordy Nelson and OTs Bulaga and David Bakhtiari. They looked poised to run away and hide with the NFC North title with Rodgers getting the band back together. Now they’re Van Halen with Gary Cherone at singer. They’d better hope when Rodgers comes back it’s a lot better than David Lee Roth’s keyless and clueless return to Van Halen. There’s only so long Eddie can play before someone has to sing, and Brett Hundley ain’t talking ‘bout love right now with this offense.

This will be the second time in four seasons Rodgers misses ample time with a broken collarbone. This one is the throwing shoulder, and that’s a tougher rehabilitation. If there is no surgery, the shoulder is immobilized for 4-6 weeks. That means no throwing, no weightlifting. When I broke mine, I couldn’t even comb my hair with my right hand for a month. As awesome as Rodgers is, there will be some rust coming back as the shoulder gets back to full strength.

Minnesota will show no mercy, nor should they. The Vikings are on their third QB with both Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford out with knee injuries. Some have speculated that neither will play again, though that’s purely conjecture. On this day, Case Keenum (24/38, 239 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT) was more than good enough to best Brett Hundley and lead the Vikings into a first-place tie with the Packers at 4-2. It’s hard to trust either of these teams with their QB injury woes, but Minnesota definitely has the better defense. With Detroit dropping like a lead weight (thrashed 52-38 by New Orleans thanks to 3 Saints defensive TDs), the Vikings look like the favorites to win the NFC North.
