Green Bay Packers megastar Aaron Rodgers is ‘holding out hope’ for the Cowboys

Aaron Rodgers has the highest career passer rating in NFL history.

Green Bay Packers megastar Aaron Rodgers is “holding out hope” he can play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Rodgers, who suffered a broken collarbone during Green Bay’s 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears on November 4, has not been medically cleared and will undergo a scan later this morning.

Fortunately, Rodgers injured his non-throwing shoulder and has taken some snaps with the first-team offense this week.

Directing what was the league’s third premier attack, Rodgers tossed 15 scores, against four interceptions, for 2,218 yards over eight contests.

Most impressively, the 6-foot-2, 225 pound Rodgers completed 66.9% of his 251 attempts.

Athletic, smart and possessing an extremely powerful arm, Rodgers is arguably the preeminent field general in the sport today.

With journeyman Matt Flynn substituting for the 2011 MVP, the Packers (6-6-1) are a substandard squad.

Flynn’s a good decision-maker with solid accuracy on intermediate routes.

However, Flynn possesses feeble arm strength and is incapable of spreading the gridiron.

Lagging behind the Lions and Bears in the NFC North, Green Bay’s in peril with Flynn handling the pigskin.

Rodgers’ recovery will flatly determine if the Packers can capture their third consecutive division title.

Consequently, battling through terrible pain, don’t be shocked to see Aaron Rodgers under center this weekend at AT&T Stadium.
