The Green Bay Packers have announced that Aaron Rodgers will be starting at quarterback on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. The could be a point of concern for Bears fans but head coach Marc Trestman is assuring fans that the team is prepared to face him.
“It didn’t surprise us,” Trestman said, via the Chicago Tribune. “If he could play, he would, and we prepared for that. That’s no disrespect to the job Matt Flynn has done. They have put over 60 points on the board the last two weeks alone. But if Aaron could play, we expected him to play, and we’re prepared for that. We know that Mike [McCarthy] was going to get his team ready to play, anyway, with whoever was available. He has proven he can do that year in and year out. And with Aaron back, they have a feeling they’ll be at their best, and we’re ready for that. Excited about it.”
The Bears are also trying to bounce back from a tough loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
