Patience in Packers fandom is nearing an all-time low after the Detroit Lions loss on Monday Night Football, putting Green Bay in control of its own playoff destiny.
All Packers fans want to hear is that their franchise quarterback will be starting on Sunday when the Packers next host the Pittsburgh Steelers, preferably when he speaks on his weekly radio show on Tuesday afternoon.
A lot can change in two days, but the only thing head coach Mike McCarthy would say on Monday is that Aaron Rodgers would be evaluated on Wednesday and that the team was preparing as if Matt Flynn will start. Tuesday is the team’s weekly day off.
Rodgers will appear on Tuesdays with Aaron aired on the ESPN Radio affiliate in Milwaukee, 540 AM at 1:30 p.m. CT and streamed live online at ESPNWisconsin.com. It will be replayed on 100.5 FM in Madison at 5:00 p.m.
Since suffering a broken collarbone in early November, the fate of Rodgers would appear to be in the hands of Packers team doctor Pat McKenzie. What Rodgers has to say about his doctor, his injury, his recovery and his attempt at a comeback will make for appointment listening.
Meanwhile, kicker Mason Crosby will be the guest on the Mike McCarthy Show that airs on several television markets in Wisconsin and the Midwest on Tuesday evening, according to host Lance Allan on Twitter.
The Mike McCarthy Show airs at 6:30 p.m. CT on WGBA Ch. 26 in Green Bay and WTMJ Ch. 4 in Milwaukee. Complete listings can be found on the team’s official website.
And offensive lineman T.J. Lang hosts Tundra Talk on 105.7 FM WAPL in Appleton at 5:00 p.m. and streamed online at WAPL.com.
