Rodgers makes accuracy top priority for Packers
Question of the Day
The weather had been unseasonably pleasant in Green Bay this week, with a record high of 51 degrees Wednesday.
“I was telling a couple of the rookies, particularly the ones from the South, this is the best day you’ll see in the next six months so you better suck it all in,” McCarthy said then.
That changed in a hurry Thursday as a snowstorm swept across the Midwest, reminding everyone that it’s January.
“We’ve been in the bad weather before,” Jennings said. “We’ve performed well in the bad weather. It’s just all about execution.”
The forecast for Sunday calls for temperatures in the low 30s. But the one thing that can really set a quarterback back, high winds, aren’t expected. McCarthy said he expects winds between 6 mph and 8 mph on Sunday.
Backup Matt Flynn recently showed that huge offensive numbers are possible even in the wind, throwing for a franchise-record 480 yards and six touchdowns despite 20-mph winds in the Packers‘ regular-season finale against Detroit. Jennings was impressed by Flynn’s performance in that game, and figures Rodgers might be even more effective in bad weather.
