You talk way too much and the only time you let Zack talk is when you ask him if he agrees with your long-winded opinion. You open with Aaron Rodgers then you say let get back to the draft, you talk for about 10 seconds on the draft, and then you are right back to Aaron Rodgers. I think you are a nice person, but damn you need to script some more and stick to it. And Let Zack talk. You are very frustrating!

Definitely wanted to hear what these 2 guys had to say about the AR situation. A great listen - to the rest of it too.

At the end of the day, if you have to choose between AR and BG - who is worth more to the organization?
I was also a Favre fan but he lost me with the on/off retirement game he played and he was declining and he is not as good as AR - so I sided with management. AR has always talked about being a Packer and he is a generational talent. It might not be 'right' that a player can get a GM fired. But this is the exception to the rule. AR might not always be right and might want to always have the ball ("winners always do" - trivia quote) but that's why you have a coach. Coaching someone as smart and as good as AR means keeping him the loop. Same for GM BG and same for President MM. As fans, we expect them to all to keep AR happy. There might be a point that can't be crossed but I haven't see it in this case yet. If AR is asking for 6 years and too much money, then maybe. Does Love show that potential having not even played?

So as I posted earlier, I hope they can all get in a room and clear the air and move on to a SB. And that doesn't mean just one more year.

I guess we will know when we know! I hate this dark cloud looming over Packer Nation.

They spent too little time talking about the draft, which was dissappointing. In my opinion Gutenkunst doesn't have enough patience letting the board come to him. Instead he reaches for players and trades up when it isn't necessary. This is such a waste of our draft capitol especially in a season with no free agent signings. Take as an example the trade up for Amari Rodgers. We gave up a 4th round pick, #135 to move up 7 spots in the late 3rd round. Denver made a similar trade earlier in the day. They traded up 5 spots in the early 2nd round giving up a 4th round pick #115 but also received a 7th rounder in return. Gutenkunst was absolutely robbed!
How about the reach for Center Josh Myers, or the reaches for AJ Dillon and Deguara last year. Trading back and still getting your player is the way to win in the draft. Rick Spielman of the Vikings is the master. He traded back from #14, obtained 2 3rd picks, and still got the OT he wanted in Darrisow.
BG is playing checkers with chess grand masters. Draft and develop doesn't work when drafting so terribly. Looking at the glass half full At least we don't have Mike Mayock running our draft.

Andy's hope that things will get a band-aid so AR plays for GB in 2021 and then gets traded needs a comment:

That's exactly what Gute wants.
That's exactly what AR doesn't want.

If that's the result, then AR's decision to hurt his image is all for naught.
