Rodgers wants out of GB

Recommended Posts

AJ Hawk, who is one of Rodger's best friends, says there's no way he retires.  And he said there's very little chance that he's calling for the GM's firing.

 

So it looks like he'll either be traded or the fences will somehow be mended.

it's out there that he said that!

which means:

  1. he did, or
  2. the team put it out there, or
  3. the media is lying (or using an unverifiable, untrustworthy source... kind of the same thing as lying.)

I think the team or Rogerz should call out the media people pushing this because the person reporting a lie should be outed and blackballed.

Rogers can go on Primetime Sportscenter and squash this at anytime, IF he wanted to.

but WHY draft a QB in the first round when your HoF QB still has 3-6 years left of high level play?

 

Why not?  2018 and 2019 weren't Rodgers best years.  The Packers can't predict how long he'll keep playing.  They had an opportunity to grab a good young QB so they took it.  It was good value for the spot.  Rodgers shouldn't worry about it.  If he wants to keep playing, let the Packers figure out what to do with Love.  If nothing else, Love becomes a good trade chip down the road the way Brunell was during Favre's time.  You have to always be thinking about having the next guy in line ready.

do you think the draft positions of Love and Brunell is a fair comparison?

Yeah I'd be surprised if he retired if he didn't get traded. 40 million is a lot of money no matter who you are. Also I think he needs to realize it isn't that easy to get everything you want when you are taking up such a huge portion of the payroll. He's upset about the replacement pick and it seemed like it was handled poorly by Gutekunst. At the same time you don't want to be left holding the bag on a 40 million QB when his effectiveness wanes.

Denver radio and fans not only want to take that chance, but are willing to give up some first rounds picks to roll that dice

What's your point?  They drafted a good young QB when they had the chance to.  If he ends up sitting on the bench behind Rodgers for the next 6 years that's a Love and Packers issue.  Rodgers just needs to play his game and not worry about it.

Love couldn't even sniff the gameday roster. That's what they think about him.

Do you think the Packers don't have a right to draft the best player the can at any position they see fit?  Players get pushed all the time.

Exactly why Rodgers shouldn't worry about it.  To him, Love should just be another dude sitting on the bench behind him.  I honestly don't think Love is really the big issue with Rodgers here though.  There needs to be more going on.

that's a disingenuous tangent.

Nor answers the question that you compared a 1st round to 5th round expenditure

Love was 3rd string last year.  They cut Boyle in the off-season so Love is now 2nd string.

Jordan Love was the best available player? Do you follow any football?

I never compared 1st and 5th rounders.  What relevance does where Brunell was drafted have when he proved he had the talent to be a starting QB in the league?  I'm not sure what argument you are looking for here or what point of yours you think I contradicted.  Brunell was merely a side note in my post.

And they didn't dress 3 QBs last season.

Oh  for crying out loud.  This is the road your going down now?  People really are desperate for arguments today.  Do you think the Packers drafted Love if they didn't believe he was bpa?

Well I thought the pick was silly to be honest so I see where Rodgers is coming from. He's only got so much time, he needed a receiver, there were plenty of super high-quality WR available and they pick a project QB. I can see why it's maddening from Rodgers standpoint. That and the fact they didn't extend him further and he's not that old he's 37. Hindsight being 20/20 they should have just bitten the bullet and gotten it done. I'm sure there is more to it than this though, it's like a marriage you never really know what's going on.

He was one weapon away from being in The Superbowl last season.

Well that's the thing, it's not minor. I think with that extra receiver they may have made it to the Superbowl. Jordan love contributed exactly zippo and they were one play away. You can imagine the guys frustration
