my prediction  
Old Dirty : 6/7/2021 12:46 pm : link
is that he stays in GB, threatening to sit out the season up until last preseason game. Ends up playing his usual good football, but is even more of a dick to anyone that will listen.

My hope is that the packers trade him to the team with the worst OL in football & he gets his ass kicked up & down the field the rest of his career.

He's been very prosperous playing football. The GB packers owe him nothing more than what he signed up for.

If you pull away the Rodgers drama:

- The Packers fired McCarthy before he had 2 full losing seasons
- They replaced him with an up and coming coach who immediately turned in a 13-win season
- They used a pick in the mid 20s on a QB, with a 37 year old QB
- Won 13 games again, a playoff game, and arguably could have won another
- The Packers took 2 pretty good offensive players in rounds 2 and 3
- The Packers had the 13th ranked scoring defense in the NFL last year

The Packers are one Aaron Rodgers press conference from being viewed as a well prepared, well coached, winning team set for success now and the future.

Sports is full of arrogant pricks. Unless he's out there committing crimes who gives a shit? You don't have to like him either but wishing he'd have a career ending injury? That's as low class as it gets.

I don't like LeBron James, but wishing he's break his leg never entered my mind because I'm not a scumbag.

Agree with UConn. Fans like you suck.
Here is my solution  
rasbutant : 6/7/2021 1:05 pm : link
They re-work his contract to make him a FA next year.

Rodgers is happy, he only has to put in 1 more yr than he can go to a new team and get a new deal with the new team.

Green Bay cuts it's losses, they get 1 more yr of a motivated (new team and contract on the horizon) Rodgers, plus they can Franchise Tag and Trade him in the offseason. This gives them an entire off-season to drive up the biggest trade they can. If not they still own him at like 44 or 45 MIL on the tag, but no one wants it to get to that. Not sure what is allowed to be re-worked in the contract, but the ultimate for GB would be a re-worked deal that removes all dead money, but even just looking at the numbers as they are now, 17M dead is a lot better than 38M.

GB gets a kings ransom, Love takes over, the drama is ended, they save some face, Rodgers gets what he wants, though 1 yr later, so he feels like he wins. I think it's a good compromise.

How can you pull the drama away. Does any of the above happen without Rodgers? And you can prep for life after Rodgers without blowing a 1st on a project, that's what the mid-rounds are for.

What's the success rate for QB's taken in the late 20's? Much different than a 2nd or 3rd rounder? I haven't looked but I doubt it.

its been talked to to death on here. Rodgers fell draft day - he could have gone #1. Love is a project.

Instead of taking what happened 15 years ago in a different NFL why don't you look at recent 1st round picks and where the line of success seems to be drawn. Other than Lamar Jackson, you'd be hard pressed to find any late 1sts or early 2nds that work out well.

There's always gems like Russell Wilson, but you usually end up with a Christian Hackenberg.

You can make the argument that QBs are more overdrafted than they’ve ever been because of the rookie pay scale. If you have a veteran in place, the move is to draft a pocket passer that can sit and learn. They are the guys that are dropping because they can’t just step in right away and produce. The Bucs just did this. I like Trask and think he has a chance, but fans and the media would write him off in the first few years because he can’t rely on his mobility. It’s hard for a pocket passer to stick around long enough to get to that point if he’s playing.

Of course Rodgers is a fundamental part of their success, and he’s presumably their quarterback for 2 more years.

If Aaraon Rodgers had come out and said:

UConn4523 : 6/7/2021 2:03 pm : link
yes I would. 13-3 suggests they are potentially 1 upgrade away from moving the needle. And I also think his skillset will age well and as why are finding out with the older QB's of this generation, playing well past the expected expiration date has almost become common.

They also traded up for Love (a 4th rounder) suggesting a lot more was going on than just thinking Rodger's was going to not be good anymore. Seems to me like they jumped on an opportunity to try and get ahead of what is now, nuclear fallout.
I wouldn't believe too many players

Who claim they'll sit the whole season out and forfeit their money unless they get what they want. But for some reason, he is one where I might be able to believe it. I do think he is serious about it. Whether he ultimately does it or not, I don't know, but I don't view it as a bluff. I think he is serious that he'll give his money up and sit the season out.

That's fair. I see it as Green Bay has a great offense, and a good defense. They were in the driver's seat all year, and their young coach mismanaged the end of the championship game.

We're not talking several bad moves by the organization. We're talking arguably one debatable move -- on a pretty loaded team.

I think if Rodgers had played it cool -- most everyone would feel like it was a wise move to plan for the future.

GMen72 : 6/7/2021 3:14 pm : link
Rodgers can let Love get a few starts and see how he does, and how the team does. If the Packers were to start 1-4 or 2-3, I wouldn't want to be the GB GM. AR then has ALL the bargaining power and the situation gets worse.

GB has to make a decision before the start of the season, if for no other reason, to make the path easier for Love. If Love struggles at all, with Rodgers still on the roster, the media and fan noise would make Love's life a living hell.

I think the Love pick is water under the bridge at this point. I have no doubt that it pissed Rodgers off at the time, but his stance now is purely due to GB not renegotiating his contract. He was league MVP and wants to be paid like it.

It's hard to know how much of that is on the front office, as we don't know what they've offered him, but the longer this drag on, the worse they look.

It's not about the total money. It's about the guarantees because he wants some more security. Right now his contract is structured so that they can just drop him at the drop of the hat for minimal cost.

Green Bay got sunk when Bakhtiaria went down. The offensive line took a massive regression. And his injury happened so late in the year, it's hard to expect much from him this year. That offense looks night and day without him in the lineup, and he missed sometime early in the season and they struggled.

Rodgers probably wants to get traded, I think they take a massive step back this year without him. He knows he's on limited time with Packers and doesn't want to waste the time he has left on a team that probably can't compete for a SB. I'm surprised more people aren't talking about the loss of their All Pro LT and they have splits of what the offense looks like with him in and out of lineup. Kind of like our offensive splits when SB is in and out of lineup.
And that's why it's about the gurantees, he wants a commitment

Jimmy Googs : 6/7/2021 6:08 pm : link
months unless you weren't paying attention.

Rodgers wants big money because he put up an MVP season (and did it with relative ease no less) and he wants the uncertainty on his remaining career in Green Bay to go away.

And the way he gets that is thru nice big guaranteed commitments and opt-out clauses on his end so he has the flexibility, not the Packers.

Bakhtiari went down after the Titans game in week 16. The Packers rolled over Chicago to clinch the number one seed the next week and scored 35 points. And then put nearly 500 yards and 32 points up against the best defense in the NFL in the divisional round.

I’m not saying Bakhtiari wouldn’t have helped against Tampa, but they played well without him going into the Tampa. The Bucs pass rush was on an absolute tear and against Rodgers and then Mahomes.

because two teams they went up against were starting guys that didn't belong on a football field. The Bucs got an unbelievably fortunate run to the SB. Played the hapless WFT, a cooked Brees, and then two teams they matched up great against playing piss poor tackle play.

That's no time to prep, same thing happened to the Chiefs. They beat Chicago because Chicago stunk and Mack is someone you can neutralize at this point in his career. They didn't have a prayer that game.

If Bhaktiari went down mid season, that's likely enough time to learn how to play without him and/or trade for depth.

This was prior to the ACL injury. They lost him early last year against Bucs and looked completely inept. They then played the Texans the following week who had an atrocious defense. They put up 300 yards against the Bears and played against the Rams without Darnold combined with an inept offense that made a supbar defense that was absolutely gassed, and Rogers threw the ball 50 times against the Bucs, only put up 26 points and was under constant duress. When your QB is throwing that much, you need to see more points. Not to mention he'll get hurt. His loss is going to keep them from being a SB contender. Teams just don't lose their second-best player and not miss a beat. Especially when its on the offensive line. They did nothing to really address it either.

quantify it with such a small sample size. I'm just going by how I saw them perform. Didn't watch week 17, but they didn't look good the following two weeks that's for sure.

Rodgers is looking for titles, not playoff experiences. Teams just don't lose their second best player and stay SB contenders. Not saying they aren't a playoff team, but they are probably one win and out, and that's mostly because of Rogers. He can only do so much. They also lost their very good starting center. That offensive line is going to be their Achilles heel next year. If I'm him, I want a guarantee I'm there in 2022 or I want out.

I watch McAfee quite a bit and he's a frequent guest. The insecurity of the situation is what irks him the most. He only has so many years left.

for Rodgers. I think it's about a fresh start and in a market that's in the mountain or pacific zone.

So I still land on a trade to Denver. And the AFCW becomes the most exciting division in football.

Denver is very talented on both sides of the ball. I like Lock and think he could still be something interesting. But if they can get Rodgers, Denver is going to be a handful. And zoom right to the top of SB contenders...

It isn't about money, it's about respect. He think's he's earned enough respect to get a guarantee he'll be there in the future. You do that with guaranteed cut money. If they can't he wants to go somewhere he can win another SB. Bet that.

I understand why he wants to got Denver, very capable defensive coach and he can just run the offense. Their offense isn't much worse than GB, and he can trust his coach to lock up on back end.
well

I know it's hard to get to/win Super Bowls, but it amazes me Rodgers has only been there once. I still can't believe how the Packers choked away that 4th quarter lead vs. the Hawks in the January 2015 NFC title game.


Any other team but the Seahawks and you can blame the Packers.

Seahawks had truly incredible luck those early seasons under Carroll. I used to think NYG benefited a bit from luck, but Seattle took that to a new level.

The Patriots SB comeback from 28-3 made more sense than what happened in that 2014 NFC Championship.

If you pull away the Rodgers drama:

- The Packers fired McCarthy before he had 2 full losing seasons
- They replaced him with an up and coming coach who immediately turned in a 13-win season
- They used a pick in the mid 20s on a QB, with a 37 year old QB
- Won 13 games again, a playoff game, and arguably could have won another
- The Packers took 2 pretty good offensive players in rounds 2 and 3
- The Packers had the 13th ranked scoring defense in the NFL last year

The Packers are one Aaron Rodgers press conference from being viewed as a well prepared, well coached, winning team set for success now and the future.


This, exactly. He had plenty of weapons last year. They lost because they lost Bahktiari when the Bucs were getting hot.
Him whining about weapons is bullshit.
He sits this year
