This isnt unusual for a guy who is approaching his last best contract, the one you need for retirement down the road. He wants maximum money either from the Pack or someone else.
Maybe the Pack should trade him quick for picks if Rodgers doesnt show. Gonna be a shit show season without him so gets some picks.

I have zero idea why fans get their undies in a bunch with players like Adam's and Rodgers. They did their time and were great players and model citizens for the Packers. It is time for them to go. No longer can the GBP's afford either. We have great memories of them and some day they will be in the Packer hall of fame.

Trade them and fleece the other team for young upcoming talent in a young man's game. I guess I am more mercenary than most, but quit holding onto the past. The Packers and the 'Love' era is starting and the future looks bright!

I agree, KnockTheSnotOutOfYou.

No one knows which way AR and DA will go this year, but their days in Green Bay are both numbered. The tweaker stuff is tiresome. Trade them before the deadline if they don’t want to be Green Bay Packers, and move forward towards achieving our goals.

I’m unwilling to lump Adams in with Rodgers without more. Ironically, I saw the only valid basis for paying Adams would be if Rodgers was here, so Rodgers behavior may be why Adams will have to move. Adams will get paid, has been open about his desire to be and deserves it. At this point that isn’t going to happen with so much up in the air and recent WR contracts. So negotiations stalling is logical. If the Packers know Rodgers isn’t playing, even more so.

As to reactions, it’s the same as with Favre. For many he was the object of their tie to football and the Packers. I see no reason why Rodgers will be any different. One just has to sift through that.

The Packers have a plan, and the contracts they offered were part of the plan. Now, Rodgers ….for his own selfish reasons….has blown up the plan in what should have been a very good season.

So I’m sure other vets are looking at possibilities.

Anybody who doesn’t want to be part of what the Packers are doing shouldn’t show up this week. We’ll make a team with the people who do.

I gotta tell you, I think Rodgers has hurt the team with this. I don’t like that.

"The Packers have a plan, and the contracts they offered were part of the plan. Now, Rodgers ….for his own selfish reasons….has blown up the plan in what should have been a very good season."

When the FO gave Rodgers a new deal everyone believed Rodgers to be 'part of the plan. Did all not rejoice, though some may have balked at the money. The FO, in Rodgers's eyes, veered away from that plan with the drafting of Love one year into his new deal. How would you feel if you signed a deal that has led you to believe you were the guy and then a year later, with years to go on that new deal when you were ambushed with your expected replacement? Deny it if you want, but you'd be pissed and believed to have been stabbed in the back, and you'd likely want out also.

The reason so many fans are pissed at Rodgers is that they conscientiously know the last real chance to get to the SB lies with Rodgers being the QB, and deny it, though the recent history of 10 years reads otherwise, but many fans will dey that aspect also.

I'm fine with Rodgers leaving this year or next, as this year will erase the likelihood of another disappointing end, and open a new chapter of hope, not blindly optimistic, going forward.

This wasn't a retirement plan when you're 20 years old and changed the path for when you're 65. This was a plan just made with Rodgers's new deal for the next 4-5 years.

Love better be worth the chaos that his drafting brought about, especially if Rodgers does get to the SB this season and leaves you with an unknown, and that's exactly what Love is until he can prove otherwise with the HOF QB walking to another team.

Yes, it was a 4-5 year plan. And we went to the Championship game twice and were well-positioned for another run this year. We’d resigned Bakhtiari and Jones. We had Adams under contract for one more year. We had Love learning. We’d brought in a new DC and some new talent.

Everything was working. But Rodgers doesn’t want to take one more shot with the Packers. So the Packers will just do what they can. Thank God they drafted a QB or Rodgers would have some leverage. As it is, he can retire.

"But Rodgers doesn’t want to take one more shot with the Packers."

The Packers would have had Rodgers for 3 more shots, but the FO threw a wrench into the plan. Are you implying the FO did all these moves to help Love succeed now, and if so, again, why wouldn't Rodgers be pissed off? I'd think they would have done it for Rodgers and the remainder of his contract and draft a QB when Rodgers had two years left. That can be seen as smart giving the new QB two years to grow and take over. The FO wanted the cake and icing but at Rodgers's expense. If they want Love, move on from Rodgers now, and go with the guy you believe is his replacement. Celebrate if Love works and take the heat if Love fails. Just stop blaming Rodgers for the whole chaos.

If they wanted them. At some point, soon, the salary cap costs you players and you can’t keep paying $30 million a year to keep taking shots.

The Packers drafted Love to sit for two years and learn, and then play in his third season so we would be sure before we committed big money to him. Rodgers would have traded after 2021 because he’d still be under contract to us.

The Plan was to win with Rodgers AND prepare for the post Rodgers era. They’ve done a great job of it.

You cant tell me he hasnt been in close contact with Rodgers and knew all along Rodgers plans but was sworn to secretcy. He knows Rodgers is coming back and also knows Rodgers wont sign so this is probably both their last years.
