Fans mixed about the Packers' future after Aaron Rodgers' injury

Who should replace Rodgers while he's out? Fans react
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV)--Watching the Packers star quarterback head off the field Monday night left many fans on edge.

“It was tough to watch, said Mariah Heiman.

“I’m worried.  I think everybody is worried right now," said Jim Kleimann

“I was definitely disappointed.” Kayla Fleischmann told Local 5 News.

Rodgers fractured his collarbone after being sacked by Bears player Shea McClellin during the first quarter –leaving many fans worried about the teams future.

Carl Dahl said, “He’s the backbone of the team.  You can hardly get by without him.  He is the man.”

Mariah Heiman disagrees: “I think it’s going to be tough for the Packers but I think they’ll be able to do it.  Key players just need to step up.”

Backup quarterback Seneca Wallace stepped in for Rodgers but he was received by fans with mixed reviews. 

“I think Wallace did alright. He just needs time to practice.  He was kind of thrown in there at the last minute and was probably really nervous," said Carl Dahl

“It just goes to show you that if you do have a back up quarterback that every chance they get, they should be playing," said Donald Davis.

But other fans are hoping the Packers sign someone else.

Jim Kleimann told Local 5, he'd like to see Matt Flynn signed.

“I think they should try and get him back because I don’t think Seneca is going to do the job.  You can see it last night," he said.

Radio Co-Host of The Fan's Morning Show, "Rookie," said “If you take a look at the numbers traditionally backup quarterbacks don’t fare well in this league.”

Rookie said their phones have been ringing off the hook since last night.

“It’s the franchise quarterback and we all know the NFL is driven by the quarterback and the team goes as their quarterback goes.  So obviously there’s a lot of concern," he said.

And while many are wishing Aaron a speedy recovery they’re hoping for some revenge when the Packers head to Chicago for week 17

“Pay back time," said Donald Davis.
