Aaron Rodgers Out vs. Pats?

According to what they're saying in Milwaukee, Rodgers is unlikely to play for the Packers Sunday. And if he does play, it will be without the benefit of any film study.  Win-win for the Pats.  Story below:

Flynn likely to start at QB after Rodgers' concussion

By Gary D’Amato of the Journal Sentinel
Green Bay — Matt Flynn is used to dealing with a lot of reporters on Wednesday afternoons.
It was a bit different this week because he was actually talking to them.

Flynn's cubicle is next to Aaron Rodgers' in the Green Bay Packers' locker room and Rodgers typically addresses the media on Wednesdays. Sometimes Flynn, rendered all but invisible, has to wait for the interview to break up in order to get to his locker.

He had to wade through a knot of reporters again Wednesday, but this time they were waiting to talk to him.

"Typical Wednesday," Flynn joked. "A few more people."

FOXBORO - Former Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo is back in the area this weekend. He brought fans to their feet at Fenway years ago, and hopes to do the same Friday night at Showcase Live at Patriot Place. But this time he will have his guitar in hand, not a baseball."
