    No, Dr. Pat McKenzie, our team physician, is the only man who has any say whatsoever in this matter. He says no, the answer is no, no matter how much anybody lobbies.

    This is what I read and took to mean that he would play.
    Do we have official word yet one way or the other?

    Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Cobb, who is eligible to play against the Steelers this week, did “very basic” work during the portion of the practice open to the media. We’ll see what coach Mike McCarthy has to say about Cobb later on Wednesday and later this week to see if that means he has a chance of being in uniform this Sunday.

    They better make sure the Doctor is not a Bears fan.
    Pulls out big sledge hammer.
    "OK Aaron. Now we are going to test for pain and reflexes in the collarbone. Tell me if this hurts."

    Where did you get this?

    So eligible does not mean that he could play on Sunday?
    :confused:

    I wanna see lots and lots of Lambeau Leaps.

    If we can beat the Cowboys away, with that amazing comeback and after the previous win in Dallas in 1989 and beat the Stealers in the big game, then I think we have a very good chance to beat them at home.

    Strong winds, 5-6" of snow by game time with another inch or two during the game. Light fluffy stuff, the kind they make snowblower commercials with. Mid 20's temp. Not too shabby if you can get to the stadium.
    Not sure Flynn has the zip on his passes to cut through the wind.

    Poppa San, THANKS for that weather report.

    I am still down here in Dallas, but my mom flew up there for this week, and is going to the game.
    I hope whoever drives, does so safely.

    I don't like hearing "strong winds" because their guy at QB has a lot stronger arm than our guy does.

    At least it's not 10-below fricking zero for my mom to freeze in.

    Article there points to a profootballtalk article

    Just goes to show that sometimes what we think is true, we really dont know

    I too thought the Dr had final say

    He pretty much does. Ted's no fool to not trust the team physician.
    And no, Ted doesn't stay at the Holiday Inn Express.

    They were practicing outdoors.
    Hopefully it's enough.

    The Packers didn't deserve to win today. To still be in the game until the last second was ridiculous. If the Steelers had just sat on the ball at the goal line, they would have won easily.

    There's absolutely no excuse for us running out of time at the end. When Quarless got tackled at the 5 there was over 1 minute left on the clock. When Starks got tackled at the 1 there was 40 seconds left.

    You almost have to consciously try to piss that much time away without getting 4 plays off.

    I will not give any credit to the Stealers as long as they have a rapist at QB.
