    McCarthy: Aaron Rodgers returning to lineup Sunday

    With the NFC North title on the line, Aaron Rodgers is returning to the Packers’ starting lineup.

    Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced Thursday that Rodgers, the club’s star quarterback, is on track to start the season finale at Chicago after missing the previous seven games with a broken collarbone.

    “We’re preparing for the Chicago Bears with Aaron Rodgers as our starting quarterback,” McCarthy said.

    Rodgers practiced in full on Thursday, the club said.

    “He’s throwing the ball very well going on three weeks. He’s been working his feet, working his conditioning, and getting ready for this moment. And that moment’s here,” McCarthy said Thursday.

    McCarthy said the club has done its “due diligence” and that Rodgers “is ready.”

    A victory by the Packers (7-7-1) will give the Packers their third consecutive division title. They currently trail Chicago (8-7) by a half-game.

    Rodgers suffered the injury in the first quarter of Green Bay’s November 4 loss to Chicago. At the time, the 30-year-old Rodgers was playing at an exceptionally high level for Green Bay, which was then atop the NFC North. Even as the Packers dealt with a host of injuries to key pass catchers, Rodgers thrived, leading Green Bay to an unbeaten record in October.

    Matt Flynn has been the Packers’ primary replacement for Rodgers, starting four games. He replaced Scott Tolzien, who started twice after Seneca Wallace was injured early in the Packers’ first game without Rodgers.

    On the season, Rodgers has completed 168-of-251 passes for 2,218 yards with 15 TDs and four interceptions. He has compiled a 108.0 quarterback rating.

    I figured they were going to win regardless... nothing about the Bears is impressive to me beyond their WRs

    Two bonehead plays sum up the Bears year for me. The GB own fumble recovery for TD that Bears could have recovered or at least tackled the GB WR - OUT TO LUNCH. The 4th down play late where Bears gave up winning TD. DB just sold out on the short throw. Even a short completion first down is a better alternative there. I get they sold out on a blitz and all, but just typical Bears.

    The Packers were 4-for-4 on 4th down conversions on that game winning drive. Brutal.

    You know he's going to get blamed for this loss but I thought Cutler was good today

    Yeah, I actually thought he was pretty good too. His passes looked sharp and he was doing the right thing by throwing the ball up and giving his monster receiving tandem of Marshall/Jeffery chances to make plays. The Bears probably need to axe their D coordinator. Their rushing defense this season was unspeakably bad.

    Ouch.

    Am I surprised about the result? NO. How it did pan out? Yeah.

    I mean the way Rodgers sidestepped to avoid the blitz and threw that bomb was a beauty and not something totally expected at the same time. It is so bad when you send the troops to blitz and the QB still finds a way to make the pass. Odds are you're getting burned.
