Confessions of a Polluted Mindset - All Rodgers, All the Time

The Weekly Packers Brain Drain from Jersey Al.

Two off-seasons ago, when the Aaron Rodgers circus was in full swing, I designated one of my columns as a "Rodgers-free zone" I just didn't want to hear another thing about Aaaron Charles Rodgers. Well, Rodgers and the Packers have come a long way since then, and with everything being so kumbaya now, I feel it's only fair to give Rodgers his due and dedicate an entire column just to him. And boy, this seems like the week to do it. Rodgers has been everywhere, talking to everyone, revealing all kinds of stuff. So here we go.

He be trippin' - There's no other place to start this off than with the revelation that Rodgers has twice gone on retreats in Peru where the goal is to explore your inner self through the use of hallucinogenics. Through these experiences, he was able to find "self-love." More importantly, he says it made him fall back in love with football, and that's really all I care about.

Locker Room talk - Some tidbits from Rodgers' post-practice interview last week. A great interview - listen to it here if you haven't heard it.

- AJ Dillon -  "Of all the people we've had in the last three years, he's got to be on a very short list of guys who have improved so drastically." Rodgers goes on to praise his pass-catching ability, an area in which I hope to see the Packers utilize Dillon (as well as Aaron Jones).

- Christian Watson - "He's a really smart kid - I know he scored really high on the Wonderlic." Rodgers was expressing little concern about Watson missing training camp time, but I can't help but believe this is affecting his first year impact on this team. Hope I'm dead wrong.

- Rasul Douglas - "Rasul is one of the smartest guys I've ever played with. He reminds me a lot, with the deepest respect, of Charles Woodson." He then goes on to say how he loves to pick Rasul's brain and get input on what he sees with the young receivers and what they need to do better. And this guy was on an NFL practice squad. If Rasul continues to ball out (there's no guarantee), well, the term "steal" is an overused term, but what a steal this was.

- Rich Bisaccia - "Rich has come in and set the standard - and not many people are talking back to him." I love me a little old-school coaching...

- Practice vs. Preseason. - "For offensive players, the practice reps are the most important reps because we're going against the same level of defenders." He then explains how in preseason games, you see pure vanilla defenses, whereas in practice, you're seeing the full array of schemes, looks, coverages, etc. He then adds that the only thing that can be useful with preseason is seeing what happens when the lights come on - who rises and who shrinks. great insight from Rodgers here.

- Tom Clements - "Tom just understands the little things in the position, so every drill is working on one specific thing and it's really how I was able to polish my fundamentals and learn how to throw in rhythm and throw on time..." Friday night we'll get to see if Clements has been able to similarly help Jordan Love.

He's sticking around. -  Rodgers did an interview with Barstool sports, and specifically one of their guys known as Big Cat, a die-hard Chicago Bears fan. Big Cat repeatedly expresses his desire to get Rodgers to leave football or at least, get out of the NFC North so maybe his Bears would have a chance. Big Cat says he will work on convincing Jeopardy or LIV Sports to make Rodgers a ridiculous offer to get him to do anything besides play football. Rodgers' response - "in three more years... maybe four." It was an off-the-cuff answer, but one that Rodgers responded with immediately, and he didn't seem to be making a joke. Of course, anything can happen, but I think it's a little sneak peek into how he's thinking right now. 

Not funny - In that same interview, where the hosts' goal was to annoy Rodgers as much as possible, Rodgers is a good sport and handles most of it with a smile. All except one thing - a very direct sarcastic tweak attempt with regards to the Rodgers vaccination/immunization drama. "How many people do you think you killed? What’s your count?" one of the hosts asks sarcastically, while the other adds, "How many grandmothers? Let’s just do grandmothers." Rodgers wouldn't take the bait.  "I mean, I know you guys are f**k-ing around, but I don’t find that part funny. I really don’t," Rodgers responds.

Seattle! - on more of a football-related bent, they ask Rodgers what was the loss that sticks with him the most. Without any hesitation, Rodgers answers "Seattle, NFC Championship game." I'm with him on this 100%. It's the only game that when mentioned, makes me cringe and want to run away and hide. Or cover my ears and yell 'na-na-na-na-na" in an attempt to not hear those horrible words. Rodgers knows that was likely his 2nd Super Bowl win that got away.

Your Favorite Breer - Rodgers also did a sit-down with Albert Breer where he talked a lot about how his relationship with Matt LaFleur and Brian Gutekunst have progressed and grown. He and Matt have spent a lot of time together off the field, and their relationship is now one of being good friends, not just player/coach. As for Brian, once the communication between them opened up, they've come to understand each other's perspectives better and Rodgers now speaks highly of Brian and his staff. They've come a long way since the cold war of a couple of years ago when Rodgers seriously considered retirement.

The King of Interviews - Next, we have Rodgers talking with Peter King, who characterized his chat with Rodgers as the most interesting and unusual conversation he has ever had with the four-time MVP quarterback. King mentions how Rodgers' Packers teammates see a different person in Rodgers - one who is calmer and more placid. Not sure how that translates to playing a violent sport like football, but we'll wait and see.

Yeah, it was a busy talking week for Aaron Rodgers.

Aaron Rodgers...Hmmm, he's definitely become a very different guy. This whole ayahuasca thing was a bit strange, I can't help but wonder if Aaron Rodgers is listening to a lot of old Woodstock footage with a tie-dyed shirt on holding up the peace sign with both hands. Not that that's a bad thing, whatever floats your boat. Hey, if he continues to play QB the same way he has the last 2 seasons and it's not against the rules of the NFL, he can grow ayahuasca in his backyard in Malibu and drink the shit out of it for all I care.

Douglas compared to Woodson...Just HOLD ON a minute! Charles Woodson, the 1st ballet HOF player who IMO was ALMOST just as important of a FA signing to the Packers as Reggie White was. Now I understand there wasn't as important FA signing EVER as Reggie White. I mean Reggie made it COOL to play for the Packers after 20 years of being known as the "Siberia" of the NFL. But the impact Charles Woodson had on the football field during his time in GB is up there with ANYONE. It's a Goddamn shame he went to Oakland AND played Safety at a Pro-Bowl level when the Packers could have used a Safety.

Okay, Rodgers...IF you play another 3 years or so just make sure GB secures another SB win or two PLEASE shut "Big Cat" the hell up and let him know you STILL OWN THE BEARS! Haven't listened to it and will take Al's word for it but good job not biting...Grandmothers? Really "Big Cat"?

NP,

I really just don't want to hear Aaron Rodgers talk about anything other than football. Remember when people (unfairly) told Kaepernick to shut up and throw? This is me, telling our QB, to shut up and throw. He's interested in being his authentic self. That's nice. But he's being paid to throw the dam football. That's it. I want Super Bowls. I DO NOT want his opinion on anything else. (Which is why I refuse to click on any of his interviews outside of the Packer pressers post-game or practice about actual, you know, FOOTBALL).

Regarding the 3-4 years thing? If Love shows well in the preseason and continues improving in practice (behind the scenes) all fall, then 12 won't be a Packer at this time next year. He'll either be retired or traded. Give me the max trade, baby!

It doesn't matter how great Love looks in the preseason, GB is not moving on from the best QB ever to play for the team as long as he is still playing at a high level. Look at Brady versus the Patriots without Brady. Look at the Colts without Manning and Manning winning a title in Denver. That's not what the team wants. They want to ride this Hall of Fame talent until he's ready to hang 'em up. They only drafted Love b/c Rodgers didn't look that great in previous seasons and was hinting retirement. Love is a question mark until he sees the field for a season of regular football.

Disagree. If you have a young guy who you think can be the franchise for the next 10-15 years, you go with that guy and the 3 1s ARod would get in a trade.

I also happen to think that Bart Starr was the best Packer QB of all time, then ARod. Then Favre. But that's just me and reasonable people can disagree.

"Two off-seasons ago, when the Aaron Rodgers circus was in full swing...." That was last year, not two years ago. Rodgers was quiet that first year after Jordan Love was drafted. Then his discontent was made public on the day of the 2021 draft, due to the team not making a longer-term commitment to him, and the entire off-season was circus.

If the Packers are fortunate enough to get another bye week during the playoffs, I hope Mr Rodgers uses his time off to take a short trip to Peru to clear his mind and get in sync with the vision of himself hoisting another Lombardi Trophy.

Hopefully, Rodger's 'trip' convinced him to stop thinking so much and trust that others know what they are doing. Thinking he is smarter than his coaches (and doctors) and constantly changing plays at the line has kept him out of the superbowl. Just run the play.

I agree that Rodgers should trust his coaches.

However, regarding doctors, not so much. The United States of America has one of the worst healthcare systems in the world. Here it is all about money only. I work in the healthcare industry, and like the rest of the people working in this industry, I make good money because it is not really a "healthcare" industry, it is actually a "sickcare" industry. We take so much care to make sure that a majority of the population is sick so that we can make money taking "care" of them.

Also, go watch regular evening TV. Tell me how many times you see ads for class-action lawsuits against some medicine that was given a decade or more ago.

The saddest part is that I could go on and on with personal examples.

Fair point. Doctors are human beings which means they fall on a spectrum from great to horrible (the pill pushers should be in jail, frankly). But to propose that you, me or anyone else not properly trained can give good medical advice, or that we can search around on the internet and come up with sound medical solutions or that we should listen to a blowhard radio host, well it is ridiculous. That's where Rodgers showed that his overinflated sense of his own intelligence is his Achille's heel. Every time he audibled out of a running play every defensive coordinators knew that he was going to Adams.

Anyway, I have also had bad advice from a Dr and I am sorry to hear that you had the same. Always get two opinions and talk to trusted family/friends about finding the good Drs. They are out there.

Giving Rodgers his Due. So many people became traumatized. They only needed to RELAX!
Trippin.= The best way to get out of a bad relationship. Is Focus on who you are, and what you have.
Locker room talk. - Don’t believe what you hear. Believe in what you see.
Can Christian Watson change his number? I prefer he wear #80. (and the Lofton comparison). The one he has is a jinx.
I predict Rusal Douglass will follow Butler, and play Safety.
I loved Rodger’s insight on practice Reps. You play like you practice. But this was beyond that.
Tom Clements can’t work miracles. Forget the Comparisons. The LOVE Trade rumors are still circulating.
Sticking around- Don’t Look Back!!
Not Funny- Cheap shots are annoying. f**k-ing around or not. Next Question works.
The Breer sit down- If you can’t make a difference. Retirement is Good.
Peter King - Still trying to get inside the helmet.

Has Dillon actually missed a pass yet? The man doesn’t have Jones route running ability, but he is so consistent. If Douglas shows he not a one year wonder and repeats his 5 INT’s, watch out, this D is going to be dominating. Even the most pessimistic folks can’t argue that.

Unless the Packers know Bak and Jenkins are back, it is time to sign a Vet FA OT, there are a few out there to be had. The OL was a problem last year and so far it is our weakness this year.

Here’s hoping Arod stays on the hallucinogenics because he has fallen back in LOVE with football. 3-4 more years, I like the ring to that. He seems in a good place in his life. Yes, he’s complicated, but he’s our complicated fella.

All I care about is Rodgers on the field. I do not mind or care what he does or about his philosophy beyond that as long as he remains focused on football and willing to be part of this O in a true give and take with LaFleur.

I’m intrigued by his comments on practice. Yes, one sees more complex plays, but they are our plays and good players learn those of the other side of the ball as well as individual players strengths, weaknesses and tendencies. In some ways it’s actually less of a challenge based upon years of other QB wisdom as well as observation.

I genuinely believe that there is value in both and the first game last year illustrated that even basic calls executed by another group of players and coaches can be a little different. I also think that protracted whole group play has value for the rest of the team, particularly newer members.

To me, Rodgers sees a lot from his perspective as a QB with a decade and a half as starter and who had 3 seasons to acclimatize before he started. I’m not so sure that he sees it as others do. He does seem pretty entrenched in a unique perspective on the world and thus probably football. Hopefully LaFleur can act as a bridge and the two do not just exchange views, but enthusiastically adopt the best lessons from each other’s insights.

To compare Douglas to Woodson, is truly something. IMO, Sir Charles Woodson was the greatest player to ever play the game. Rodgers, giving praise to Douglas by comparing him to Woodson, really opens one's eyes! The trade talk involving Jordan Love should be left where it is. I doubt Gute ever trades Love, a former 1st Round pick, of his. The guy has spent so much time in the system, under Rodgers that trading him would seem to be taking a step, or two, backwards, at this point. The only thing I can see that would slow this team down, is injuries. You know they are going to happen. It's just a matter of when and to whom. I like our O Line depth, right now. Our RB room is good, so far, and guys like Taylor, Goodson or Baylor could be elevated if any injuries occur to our starters. I think Hill is our 3rd RB, as of now. I hope he is healed up enough to play, if needed. Our WRs need to get and stay healthy. Watson missing camp, sucks. Watkins getting hurt in camp, sucks. Let's hope Lazard, Amari, Cobb, Doubs and Toure stay healthy. Danny Davis, too. Right after I posted this, I read a report that RB Dexter Williams has re-signed with the Packers. More depth for the RB room and STs.

Jersey: I enjoy your weekly Packers report, as you give us fans more insight into the team. Since the drafting of Love, Aaron has refocused his game and study to earn two back-to-back MVP's. From training camp so far, his play has not declined with his age. I feel he wants it more than ever to get another Super Bowl win this year. The defense should be steps ahead of past years, and I have huge hopes for that. There are 32 teams and one winner every year, and it comes down to the team with the fewest mistakes in the playoffs. I can't wait for week #1.

He be trippin' -
The most important thing about this is as far as football goes. It wasn't against any NFL rules surprisingly.

- AJ Dillon -
I am expecting a big year from Dillon. He is very different from other RB's in the league. But he also compliments Jones really well.

- Christian Watson -
I wouldn't be surprised if he starts slow, but then each week towards the end of the season he is playing really well and giving us a big threat.

- Rasul Douglas -
Comparing Douglas to Woodson in anyway is great praise for anyone. No matter what happens in the future getting Douglas last year was a steal. Same with Campbell. Could Reed be the next steal in line?

- Rich Bisaccia -
In Rich we trust!

- Practice vs. Preseason. -
I think playing against another team in live action does have some benefits. Sure its vanilla stuff, but its game action with a lot of young guys who will be taking their first reps with Rodgers on the field. That stuff you can't replicate in practice.

- Tom Clements -
I think Clements could be very good for Love. Sounds like Love already has been doing better. I think Clements is at least part of the reason why.

He's sticking around. -
I think Rodgers is around for 2-3 more years minimum. Which if he is, I think if Love does really well this preseason, they may look to trade him and try to find the next QB.
But who knows. Either way its in GB's best interest if Love plays well.

Not funny -
I am not getting into the vaccine talks. Everyone is entitled into their opinions and we don't need to be having those types of talks on this page. But that is a Crap take! Who actually says that? Its not funny at all.

Seattle! -
I am there as well. That one took them losing it not Seattle winning it.

Your Favorite Breer -
Its really crazy how different it is here then the last couple of years.

The King of Interviews -
I think it will translate into a fun year! Lets enjoy the ride!

Totally agree on trading Love, RC. If the Packers win the Superb Owl this year and Rodgers decides to hang up the cleats and go out on top rather than risk the slow decline, and Love has grown enough under Clements’ tutelage to be the legit starter, then we keep him.

But if Rodgers is serious about playing well into his 40s (and to the extent that he knows the answer to that himself, I expect the Packers’ brass do as well), then the time to trade Love is now, when he has a year left on his cheap rookie contract and we can get something more than a comp pic for him. Start over with a new rookie prospect who can marinate for several years behind Rodgers now, and be ready to start 2025ish.

Nice peace Al!

"He be trippin'" - so, to me, it looks like he finally become self aware of his "self-love". Because, in the past all what it was was his self-love. Maybe he was not aware of it, but that was that. I have no problem about anyone self-love if it is not produce of negative perception of others. What I truly believe was the case in AR behavior from 2018-2022. And I believe it was one of the main reasons why he did not won his second SB.

As many here, let's hope this awareness of his self-love will finally produce better respect of the others and win that second AR SB we are all waiting for.

Locker Room talk - there is more players than those 3 you mentioned Al that got high praise from AR during LR interviews. Just to mention 2: Allen and Romeo, but also some players from the D side of the game.

He's sticking around - not long ago (I believe in short interview just before TC) AR mentioned that he is thinking about retirement and that he would not talk about that now (just before TC), but after the season he will seriously think over and decide what will be his feeling regarding retirement or continuing to play football. He also said that he will retire as Packer for sure...

Not funny - Well, he open the gates for those kind of low comments and questions. He showed us (what was and is expected) that he knows how to deal with those kind of dirty and inappropriate punches.

Seattle! - To be honest, I agree with your assessment that 2014 Seattle defeat came in the moment when Packers was the best than all competition that season. Still, for me last 2 years in the row was the most panful for me because it was not failure of whole team, but the failure of few individuals.

Your Favorite Breer - What I learned in my life when we come to the doing business is: "Service/Business is business and friendship is friendship!". That means that I can be a very good friend with my boss, but if I work for him and when we are working, our friendship means nothing, as when we are socializing our business relation means nothing, too. That must be divided if we want to succeed in both fields.

I'm glad that he become friend with MLF, but, Aaron, he is still your boss and you need to listen to him when you are doing your business he is running. That is all what I ask from you!

The King of Interviews - everyone has his own assessment of the any person, so I expect every player in his locker room has his own view of AR. This means nothing negative, but I doubt that all the players would describe AR with the same words...

Thanks for this "a week long" column, I believe we all needed it...

As for Rodgers as long as he continues to play as well as he has throughout his career the rest is irrelevant as long as it’s not illegal.

I think Rodgers is comparing Douglas to Woodson in the sense that Douglas plays aggressively to the ball which is something much of the Packers secondary since Woodson has not done effectively. I’m not convinced that Rodgers actually believes that Douglas is as good as Woodson.

BigCat sounds like another media airhead who asks stupid questions just to maintain his ratings rather than actually trying to contribute information about the sport. But the airheads have taken over the media so it doesn’t surprise me.

Good job as always Al. Thanks, Since ‘61

Certainly, ARod is pretty much in the drivers' seat with regard to how long he's in GB and how long he plays. I keep coming back to the fact that the cap is king, and the 2023 cap don't look too hot. So long as #12 is in town, it creates issues with not only his cap number, but the tender issue of Bakhtiari and his cap number. Assuming Nijman and Jenkins are both right, I don't see Bakhtiari back in GB next season...in a sane world. But cutting or trading Bakh doesn't create a large amount of space, either.

Charles Woodson entered the NFL as a very good player. He has also shared valuable tips on how he became elite... one very important tip being how he studied film on individual players, analyzing their tendencies, looking for tell-tale signs, and how to translate that into on-field action. He realized this and started this level of studying only a few years AFTER entering the league. He mentioned this is one of his interviews.

The above advice is available to every player. However, how many players actually study film like that?

Seems to me that that is what Rodgers has found out about Rasul and is referring to. Rasul himself said how he is studying the film much more, how Coach Gray has helped him to look for the right things, and how that has helped him elevate his game. Yes, you have to be physical freaks to play this lovely game of football, but the mental part of it, the preparation, is much more important.

Self Love, nothing has ever been so evident ever in the history of the world with Rodgers. Easy to see how many women has he or the dumped him? And the other thing about Rodgers was he take and lying about the vaccine. The grandmother thing however was beyond the pale to accuse of that sort of thing! the Seattle Game will stick forever!

If our funky QB needs an hallucinogen to fall back in love with football, that doesn't bode well for the Packers.
How often will he have to go back to Peru to keep the ennui from seeping back in with all of its arrogance and negativity?
***
It really doesn't matter all that much what Rodgers thinks about the preseason, but what his head coach thinks is best for all of the players -- oh yeah, they're buds now, anyway, so who cares who makes such decisions.
Meanwhile, we still don't know why Rodgers thought it so important to play in the meaningless game against the Lions at the end of the past regular season.
If Rodgers doesn't play in that game, do Bakh and MVS not play? That would seem to mean than neither of them would get injured, and thus miss the playoff game against the 49ers.
Also, it seems better to get the offense tuned up against vanilla defenses in the preseason than in the blitzing and blurring chaos and savagery of the regular season.
***
I'm not so sure I can take three or four more years of a bedraggled beatnik wannabe as the face of the Packers, and our key to winning in the pressure of the playoffs.
Am I going to have to resort to watching cornhole competitions?
Let's switch Rich Bisaccia to being his quarterbacks coach.

Save the kumbaya for the football field--Rodgers may need it as the rookie receivers may test his patience.

The sooner we win the Super Bowl, the better....Then provided he's earned the full confidence of Gute and MLF, Love can be handed the reins--and lose Rodgers and all the hoopla surrounding his extracurricular activities.

Maybe Aaron would like to continue his celebrity career--it would sure beat playing for the Bears. Or maybe he finishes his football career in Minnesota, the hand-me-down destination for many a Packer, and goes out in a blaze of inglory like his predecessor.

I ran the Google analytics, Facebook analytics and IBM analytics on the comments here. They call came up with the same report:

Some people hate Rodgers
Some people love Rodgers
Some people don't care as long as Rodgers wins another SB for the Packers
The Bears fans do not want Rodgers to play anymore.

Yup: Nothing has changed!

One person here loves Rodgers, going all the way back to his first years with the Packers, but doesn't like what Rodgers has become in recent years.
It's because I care about the guy that I'm not willing to pander to him and tell him everything he does is just fine as long as he awes us with pretty passes.
Plus, his increasing ego seems to be the cause of the Packers decreasing success on the field in the playoffs.
***
I will always want what's best for Aaron Rodgers as a person or player-- but I'm so weary of his seemingly endless endeavors to call attention to himself, and so concerned that his self-absorption is dragging down the entire Packers franchise.
Also, I don't want to intrude into his personal life, but the problem is he brings so much of his personal life into the public arena. It's Rodgers who calls attention to himself.
I've been openly rooting for Rodgers to become more agreeable and more coachable, but my sense of things is that he's not only becoming weirder, but more enabled to persist in his ways of arrogance.
***
Worst of all are his antics that step on the toes of the general manager and the coach, a seemingly ongoing breach of protocol that undermines the stability of the entire organization -- even threatening the proper functioning of the team in the tight spots of huge playoff games.
Sure, Rodgers might be chums with LaFleur these days, but it seems only because our head coach has groveled to his quarterback -- to the diminishment of his dignity and the detriment of the team.

I was front row with CHTV's own Corey Behnke for the 2014 NFCCG. Behnke was cool, the game was not.

I'm not sure why people really give a sh!t what players are doing in the offseason as long as they're staying in shape, staying out of trouble and not disparaging their teammates.

I think the Ayahuasca thing is kind of funny but it, and psychedelics in general, are being used to treat addicts and PTSD survivors these days. Ayahuasca specifically is supposed to help people confront childhood trauma (fear) and help forgive people. I'm sure it's not for everybody but if it helps some people lead better lives good for them. And if you want to be a stick in the mud about it good for you. But thinking you know how other people should live actually just leads one to a pretty miserable existence.

What he does or thinks doesn’t bother me if it isn’t interfering with football or hurting others. That said, he chose to make this public and to do so invites comments both wise and less so. I just ignore it, other than the issue of whether the league would.
