The Packers, now down to 5-61 and coming off a semi-bye week after being embarrassed by the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, might have a glimmer of hope for the playoffs but would be better served by looking in the mirror instead. Ty Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel joins us for a hard look at our favorite team down on its luck.

#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers did all the individual drills but just like last week he was taking snaps from the backup centers. — Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) December 4, 2013 With Rodgers taking backup snaps, Matt Flynn reportedly took the starter snaps from Evan Dietrich-Smith. #PACKERSmicroblog
Fullback John Kuhn made several interesting comments on his weekly talk show.

The Green Bay Packers reached a tipping point on Thanksgiving. For this team to move forward, it can no longer look back on the accomplishments of the players and coaches three years ago to justify their position today.
MM: Matt Flynn took the starter reps today. It was a big mental day for us. — Wes Hodkiewicz (@WesHod) November 26, 2013 After a brief moment of jubilation in learning that Aaron Rodgers practiced for the first time on Tuesday since breaking his collarbone, the air was let out of the balloon by Packers [...]

Mike McCarthy calls Aaron Rodgers' chances to play Thursday "slim to none." — Zach Kruse (@zachkruse2) November 25, 2013 #PACKERSmicroblog
Even though they don’t practice, the Packers will still release an injury report on Monday afternoon.
The Green Bay Packers’ season is on the brink. Two wins in five days puts the Packers back in the drivers’ seat. Two losses and the playoffs are effectively impossible. The microscope falls on Mike McCarthy and his ability to rally his troops to play as greater than a sum of their parts.
As of Friday morning, Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been ruled out for the Vikings game. Could he possibly play on Sunday?
The Packers quarterback won’t rule himself out, however, of the upcoming game against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Packers quarterback will appear on NBC affiliates in Wisconsin at 6:30 p.m. CT, joining host Larry McCarren.
The “Tolzein Era” has fans believing that the Packers have finally found the great backup quarterback they’ve been waiting for. Here’s hoping that early struggles don’t trump the long-term potential he could bring to the team.
Rodgers will appear on his weekly radio show on the ESPN Radio affiliate in Milwaukee and ESPNWisconsin.com at 1:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday.
It’s been 21 years, 1 month, and 2 weeks since a Packers’ backup quarterback has made a meaningful start. Ted Thompson has rolled the dice for years that that streak would continue indefinitely. Today, the Pack will start a washed-up veteran with no training camp experience and Thompson has no one to blame but himself.
Nathan Jahnke of ProFootballFocus.com joins Railbird Central to determine the impact the loss of Rodgers will have on the Packers offense.
On his weekly Tuesday radio show on ESPN Radio affiliates in Wisconsin, Rodgers confirmed specifics of his injury.
