I literally said I doubt the packers would trade within the division....Aaron Rodgers may still be in a state of confusion. Packers’ QB-in-waiting Jordan Love continues to perplex onlookers at training camp, who aren’t seeing the must-have talent that inspi…nypost.com
Love is garbage, you guys wanting to trade for him have no idea what you're talking about, not to mention a division rival would never trade within the division.
He has made 274 million dollars with the packers. He doesn’t need more money, his complaint is playmakers on offense. Giving him more would actually hurt that processRodgers wants a new contract. He has no more guaranteed money on his deal that runs through 2023. This is an attempt at leverage.
I don't doubt Rodgers being angry and potentially wanting to be moved; I'm doubting the idea that GB would tell him that they were going to trade him, let alone wanting to trade him at all—which makes absolutely no sense.We don’t know. What we do know is Aaron was unhappy with GB last year for not providing weapons and an RB who was unnecessary when GB re-signed Jones. Also GB let go some OLs.
You can see the reason why Aaron is upset. He is 37 years old. He knows his clock is ticking and GB is playing for the future.
I think the bitterness between the Packers front office and Aaron Rodgers has been a two-way street ever since they fired Mike McCarthy. People just assume Rodgers is petty (partly because he is) but its not outside the realm of possibility that the Packers front office, objectively awful at the job of acquiring talent and pretty bad at their jobs, wants to needle Rodgers back.I don't doubt Rodgers being angry and potentially wanting to be moved; I'm doubting the idea that GB would tell him that they were going to trade him, let alone wanting to trade him at all—which makes absolutely no sense.
in 2017 do they draft Mahomes Watson or Trubisky though? Either way we need to get our shit togetherThey are run like shit. They had Rodgers in MVP form with an average defense and a stud offensive line...and what did they spend their draft picks on? A developmental quarterback and a back-up runningback. Their coach is actually worse than the last guy, who himself was a stick in the mud so unwilling to innovate that it actually made Rodgers look like he was in decline.
Without number twelve that team wins maybe four games every year. They are terrible at drafting, they are terrible at free agency and managing the cap and they have a shittier history of head coaches than even the Bears. But they have a legitimate god at quarterback and also are imbued with the good sense to put a decent offensive line in front of him, though they actually neglected that for a couple years and quickly learned their lesson.
If you want Aaron, better not even think about drafting a young prospect for the future. It'll hurt his feelings.
So if they don’t trade him, does he sit the year or retire? Either way, we shall be seeing a lot less of aronitout on these boards.
