Feel like if Ty can come back from that gruesome twisted knee injury, Jordy may be able to come back from that rib injury (or what I'm telling myself).

When Jordy was being carted off, it looked to me like there was more than physical pain in his expression but that he knew he was not going to play anytime soon. Hopefully, I am wrong.

I read that as those are the fears of a hit to that side of the body.

Yes, those are just the potential injuries they will do x-rays/MRI and look for. No official diagnosis yet. It could be as little as a cracked rib which he would put on a flak jacket and potentially play through, something more serious and he is likely done.

I had cracked ribs last fall. Obviously there are degrees, but I have no idea how an athlete plays with that. If I sneezed I was in ridiculous pain.

Yes, I think part of it was mental.

The way Jordy has been celebrating some of his catches lately, part of it was proabably exuberance over the realization that he has fully recovered from the ACL and playing like his old self. Now he has a new injury and it's probably devastating.

I'm holding out hope because when he was sitting on the cart, he was hunched over which you would think would create more pain to your ribs.

Also hoping that if they are just cracked he can wear a flak jacket like Favre, but that might be unrealistic.

I would settle for him being able to play in a potential Super Bowl.

Jordy being able to play at all would be huge just because at the very least he could give us benefit of being a decoy since Dallas would have to focus on him at all times.

Honestly, I think we can still kick butt without Jordy.

Obviously I'd rather have him, but if Tys healthy, Cook continues to trend up and Allison has a good showing, we're still basically just as dangerous.
I thought the Bucks should have drafted Denzel Valentine in the 10th spot.

Definitely hurts to not have Jordy against Dallas but our offense scored 38 on New York yesterday without him so I think we will be OK offensively.
My friend asked me if I wanted a frozen banana, I said "No, but I want a regular banana later, so, yeah."

A few weeks ago after Ryan went to the locker room and came back in the Houston game, Chmura and Tauscher were on 540 talking about some crazy shot that makes you feel like a million bucks. Forgot the name of it.

Would never advocate that Jordy play with an injury that could threaten his long term health, but I'm hoping for "just" some cracked ribs. At least with that, you can give him a shot and throw a flak jacket on him so long as you limit his snaps. But that's a long shot, and it's looking like we'll be without him for the rest of the playoffs.

Going to sound odd, but don't even know if Nelson is a huge loss based on how Rodgers is playing, Allison's improvement, Cobb and Cook in the fold, etc. It all comes down to what is Dallas' TOP? Because I don't see any way they are stopping Rodgers, who is in full Godgers mode right now. Can we stop their running game at all? On that I don't have much confidenec. Just need to hope they hold some of the drives to FG.

Yeah. I mean, obviously having Jordy back would be nice, but the offense was clicking on all cylinders after he went out of the game yesterday. With Adams being reliable now, a healthier Cobb, and Allison being a nice addition, I still think Rodgers and the offense can put up some points on the Dallas defense. Plus, with Michael looking as explosive as he did yesterday, I'd be fine with giving him the bulk of the carries in Jordy's absence and having Montgomery go back to being a slot WR for the majority of the game.

The Dallas defense isn't any good. The Giants defense is a much scarier unit and the Packers had their way with them for three quarters yesterday. They can't get into the same predicament though that they did yesterday by basically throwing away a quarter on offense. They need to be sharp right away -- like some of you have said, if the Packers can jump out to a 10-0, or 14-0 lead and force Dak to throw, that could be huge into hopefully forcing him into a couple of mistakes.
