Aaron Rodgers activated from COVID list, will start Sunday

The game will feature the return of two premiere quarterbacks. 

From NFL Network: 

Rodgers returns after missing one game due to Covid-19 protocols. 

The NFL recently fined Rodgers $14,650 and the Packers $300,000 for breaking those protocols. The league also fined wide receiver Allen Lazard $14,650. Rodgers attendedance at a Halloween party without wearing a mask in a large group was a violation of COVID-19 protocols for unvaccinated players.

The Seahawks will also see the return of their starting quarterback. Russel Wilson will be back in the lineup for Seattle one month after surgery on his right middle finger.

Heading into Sunday's game, Rodgers has thrown seven touchdowns and posted a 111 passer rating in four career home starts vs. Seattle.

What I don't understand is how is he still even alive. I thought without the vaccine you were as good as dead. It must have been that damn horse dewormer he got from his doctor.

Davante is vaccinated and got COVID; Aaron Rodgers is not vaccinated and got COVID.
Is there really a difference as far as the team? I don't know, but I'm not sure if the scientific experts really know, either.
I'm all for following the science of epidemiology, but wonder how much of COVID protocol for the NFL and the rest of society is based on ideology. Are the states with lots of restrictions like California really doing better with COVID than the states with fewer restrictions like Florida?
***
It actually makes me angry that I can't trust the political authorities and scientific experts to be open and honest and transparent with the American people, because I really want to do the right thing in relation to others.
It seems highly unscientific, for example, to say that Ivermectin is merely a horse de-wormer? It seems misleading and highly sensationalistic and political. Even good medications can be misused.
Sad to say, instead of an open dialogue, we get suppression and censorship and silencing, plus ridicule and scorn and nastiness.
***
I think the vast majority of Americans want to follow the science, and want to do the right thing in regard to their neighbors. It's just that many of us don't trust the authorities who talk down to us, and seem to truly despise us.
It seems a ploy of the establishment to tell us that people will die if we don't give them massive powers in the central government (e.g. climate change, nationalized health care). If we don't do things their way -- surrendering our freedoms in the process -- we're supposedly doomed.
I hope Jersey Al may not erase this comment (as a couple of others) -- which are highly relevant to the NFL -- even though he seems to think I'm an anti-scientific nutcase who chases conspiracy theories.
Why are we being manipulated to attack each other in such divisiveness? I think that we the people have to stand together in solidarity to save America as America.

You need to learn to differentiate between science and what entertainers and some politicians are telling you. It's really not that difficult, and there really isn't any controversy if you learn to do that.

Why this BS on a page dealing with sports. Keep your crappy ideologies to your self and your kind of thinkers. Let football be football. Rodgers caused a storm that wasn't needed and the lying on that side of thinking has to stop. Tired of all this BS if you don't like what the scientists and government does leave the country or talk it among the same kind of thinkers like you, rest of don't need to hear this political slant every time we turn around! And by political slant I mean both sides, not just one! Country already has gone to hell in a handbag enough already.

Swisch,
"Are the states with lots of restrictions like California really doing better with COVID than the states with fewer restrictions like Florida"?

Really Swisch?
Take a look at the death rate per capita in those two states, your second grade niece can likely help you with the math if you're unable to it figure out.

California does credit any death to Covid even if it wasn't a major factor. This was a major factor in Sweden in reclassifying the majority of deaths to non-related Covid earlier this year. Really Hounddog? Swisch is asking some very basic questions about policy and the decisions about how we got here. By the way, Florida classifies death by Covid if the virus is a direct cause. Be careful in dealing with stats on this. Like PFF O Line stats, they can be a bit misleading.

What you say, Phantomil, in my opinion, is what makes America great, and also threatens to cause us great harm.
I'm glad that Americans are decisive and work to make things better, when many other countries seem to merely sit around and talk about it.
However, sometimes the best thing to do, and the hardest thing to do, is to take a deep breath and wait awhile. Sometimes it's even good to say we're not sure what to do, and to have a dialogue to search for a solution to the common good. Even the ordinary person of common sense and common goodness may have an insight that the experts may miss.
Sometimes a rash decision to address a problem only makes the problem worse, and causes other problems.
Sometimes it's good to call a timeout to settle everyone down and talk things over. Sometimes it's good to punt rather than going for it on fourth down. Sometimes it's good to intentionally throw a pass out of bounds, and live for another play.
To know when to go for it and when to hold back is an ability of a very few. It requires not only knowledge, but also wisdom.
America seems to have a lot of knowledge, but seems to be lacking in wisdom. Wisdom requires humility. May God grant all of us all the elusive virtue of true humility.

I agree that talk about outside issues should be limited at a good football site such as CheeseheadTV, but it seems hard to avoid them altogether.
As an example of a happy intersection of sports and society, I remember in the early 1970s seeing the movie, "Brian's Song" -- about the first NFL players to room together, in the 1960s, as a black and white.
I almost certainly cried as a grade-schooler (b.1962 in Milwaukee), and probably later seeing the movie again as an adult. It wasn't just me, though, who loved that movie. It was first released for television, but was so popular as to be brought to the theaters. I went so far as a 7th-grader, in the fall of 1974, to read the book upon which the movie is based: "I Am Third," by Gale Sayers.
About that time I also read a biography about Jackie Robinson as hero. A couple of years later, as a freshman in high school, I was enthralled by the television miniseries, "Roots." My varsity basketball coach was black at Wheaton Central High School in suburban Chicago, and his son was one of my teammates and friends.
The point being I was brought up to consider blacks as my equals as a part of being an American (as well as being a Catholic). I think most Americans are the same way.
Indeed, in all of human history, I think America is the most tolerant of any nation ever to exist. Has there been recorded in the annals a place of such diversity with such overall harmony? We are not only for the most part politely tolerant, but sincerely welcoming of outsiders to live with us side by side.
Yes, America has been highly flawed and faulty with regard to race, but look how far we've come since the 1960s. The progress has been incredibly swift and widespread and thorough. It seems to me that average American love our neighbors of all colors without exception, and demonstrate it with countless acts of genuine kindness.
With this perspective, it's a tragedy that there's been an effort by establishment politicians and woke business executives and supposedly expert academics to falsely divide America again according to race. It's only happened in the past dozen years or so, and it's almost all lies (including the pathetically phony act of Jussie Smollett; and the regrettably fictional cry of, "Hands up, don't shoot!")
It's seems a scam to distract us from a tiny percentage of elite Americans increasingly controlling almost all of the power and wealth. It seems that average Americans should unite across all colors in solidarity to regain our standing as a vibrant middle class with good jobs in good neighborhoods.
It makes me angry that cynical elitists would reignite racial tension when America has come so very far in such a short time to racial togetherness.
***
Again, sports has a great role in helping to improve society; and so it is that outside issues are sometimes relevant to football sites such as CheeseheadTV.
I'll try to keep my beliefs and opinions limited; but it seems important to call out perceived lies that are creeping into the NFL, and adversely affecting the Packers and us as fans.
We don't always have to agree. However, please, let's not fall into the trap of calling each other racists, or saying that the other side is anti-science. That plays into the hands of the power brokers seeking to manipulate and intimidate us into silence and submission.
I came to CheeseheadTV a couple of years ago to talk Packers football with a good measure of good-natured camaraderie. I'm truly glad for the times this has occurred. I dearly hope for this to be the case going forward.
***
P.S. My sincere thanks to Jersey Al if he allows this comment to remain standing. Again, I'll try not to overdo the outside issues. I'm glad to get away from them for awhile to talk Packers -- and look forward to a common celebration of victory tomorrow In Packer Aaron's quick recap and Sarah's in-depth account. My sincere best to all in a spirit of friendship.

Along with the Vikings and Cowboys, the Seahawks are one of my favorite teams to beat.
I hope the Packers outhit and outhustle and outsmart these guys in a thoroughly satisfying victory. Keep it unpredictable and relentless all the way through.
To me, the best-case scenario is Aaron Rodgers carving up their defenders with diverse running plays and short passes, with occasional thrusts of deep passes to finish them off.
A few sacks and a couple of turnovers by a swarming defense of varied schemes would make it a complete conquest.

The two scientists who developed ivermectin to treat humans were awarded a Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015.
https://www.westernjournal.com/ivermectins-immeasurable-impact-won-scien...
How well ivermectin works against COVID is another question, but it's highly unscientific to say it's simply a horse pill.
In general, a medicine that has been used in the treatment of one illness can be repurposed to treat a different illness.
P.S. By the way, I don't know if The Western Journal (linked above) is a respectable publication or only a source of conspiracy theories. I don't know who gets to decide such labels.
Though I had never previously heard of The Western Journal, the column I present seems to be quite reasonable.
That the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded for the development of ivermectin as a treatment for humans seems an indisputable fact.
I'm still learning about COVID, and would encourage others to be open to reports outside of the establishment media.

As a side note, most have forgotten that Rodgers was the prime mover among the players to play last year. The owners in Football, Baseball and Basketball were all for canceling their seasons and taking the TV money and 'sitting out the season. By Rodgers forcing the issue, he and a group of veteran players forced the owners to justify their actions. They couldn't, and the networks told them 'no play, no pay'. To say New York NFL league office (Goodell) hates Rodgers is an understatement. So while most of us can't stand Aaron Rodgers for well, being Aaron Rodgers, let's remember that we have football being played today thanks to his actions.
