I'm not one for fate or destiny, but at some point, I have to wonder if we're just cursed this year.

It has been one of those years where I’m afraid to ask, what’s next? There has not been a lot that has gone right for this team

Rodgers just felt a big ache in both his thumb and ribs.

Like trade him and some more to get Adam’s back after the raiders axe carr
I think Bakhtiari's trade value has dropped to nothing. As for getting Adams back, can't afford it even if it was possible.

Good grief! We are. Incredible. Well, it is one year. Season ender but not a career ender. When it rains it...freezes on the tundra.

Is it a season ender or can he be back at sometime? Haven't read anything about a possible return just that he's out for this game.

Well, with an appendectomy you miss
work or school for at least a week. Pro football is not an office job. No sense in trying to salvage him for the final couple of games. Let Zach play.

It's usually only a few weeks. Can't beat physiology, tissue needs to heal. But those few weeks are going to push it close to the end of the season. If playoffs were in play he'd almost certainly be back for them

The Packers could afford trading for Adams from a cap perspective as he would only count $6.5 million towards their cap next season. It won't happen for obvious reasons though.

The crazy thing is how good he has been when on the field. If you want to be shocked look up how many tackles have not given up a QB hit or sack…..clue he is one of them.

If the surgery is done laparoscopically he could be back sooner than if it is open surgery.

Give Bahk the rest of the season off....he's earned it! :roflmao:

No sense him tearing up a knee or have more setbacks.

I expect we will see a lot of backups playing in the next 5 or so games. Which is good for the team, time to evaluate and improve their skillsets.

According to PFF Bakhtiari ranks fifth in pass blocking grade and fourth in efficiency among tackles that have played as much as him this season.

There is little doubt he's still one of the very best. Seems the knee has been getting stronger, I have optimism for next season and I don't think it's a given he's gone. I don't think i'd play him again this year, playoffs, yeah, he's playing week 17 and into playoffs. I don't envision that being a serious possibility so I think his season is done.

At least sit him for now and only bring him back in to play if by some miracle we look like we have a decent chance to make the playoffs.

Some reports coming out that David could be back at practice Friday. (Crossing fingers). We sure could use him down the stretch this year.

Be big to get bakh back for the trip to Miami
Absolutely.
In 2022 it would also be a fitting story to have him help us Win going into the playoffs. After we’ve lost him to injury at critical points of the season for 2 years running.
