It has been a week since the new broke that Aaron Rodgers apparently wants out of Green Bay. What have we learned and where do we go from here?
It’s been a week of media leaks, pointed debate, and downright shock that the relationship between the reigning NFL MVP and his team could deteriorate so quickly. What was once an uneasy albeit highly successful peace in the wake of the drafting of Jordan Love has now devolved into playground insults and both sides digging in their heels.
For Packers fans, it is yet another soap opera involving a future hall of fame quarterback and one many fans don’t care to experience again. Yet here we are and who knows how it will end.
Should this have been that surprising though? Rodgers has always been a different kind of superstar. He’s more cerebral, more methodical and more private than your average star.
Everything that’s come out has come out for a reason but to find out what the actual endgame is, we’re just going to have to sit and wait and drink until we do and that might take some time.
Now may be the summer of our discontent, Packers fans.
For someone like Rodgers (and other stars in other sports), control is a heck of a drug. Traditionally in Green Bay, players play and coaches coach. Rodgers apparently wanted some control over personnel ala an NBA player like LeBron James and the Packers balked and why wouldn’t they? Their structure has kept the franchise among the elite of the NFL for almost 30 years running (though having consecutive hall of fame quarterbacks didn’t hurt either).
Matt LaFleur has done a masterful job building a locker room culture in his two years as coach and this situation is a legitimate threat to ruin that. In order to preserve that, the Packers should be prepared to trade Rodgers if they can’t get him back on board.
Meanwhile in happier news, the Packers’ first round pick increased his interception total his senior year and that is an area Green Bay will be looking for him to contribute as their new CB2.
Green Bay will likely want another quarterback even if Rodgers somehow returns and Nick Mullens would be a great fit and he already knows most of the offense from his time with Kyle Shanahan.
No joshing around here. This is serious business.
