Staying Up Late Tonight to Watch Rodgers? I'll Pass.

QB12 can clear the air this evening, but will he?

So I guess tonight’s the night.  Aaron Rodgers is apparently going on TV.  He is a scheduled guest on the farewell Sportscenter show for anchor Kenny Mayne on ESPN.  It would be his first public appearance since reports broke on draft day that Rodgers has told people within the Packers organization that he will never play for the team again. 

 

The program will begin at 10pm Central.  That’s 11pm Eastern.  I confess that’s past my usual bedtime.  Is it really worth staying up to hear what he has to say? 

 

Not for me.  I’ll pass.  I’m sure it will be the talk of the sports world tomorrow and the pertinent sound bites will be all over the internet.  That is, if there are any pertinent sound bites.  Or if there are any sound bites at all. 

 

If this is really happening, ESPN, infamous for overhyping its product, is certainly underplaying it.  Rodgers’ supposed appearance is getting little to no promotion on the air or on its website.  Could it be the worldwide leader in sports has no assurance the controversial quarterback will show up?  Were it not for a tweet by Mayne and a report by Adam Schefter, no one might even have learned of this. 

 

Regardless, as with many of you, I’m weary of the whole thing.  I’m ready to move past it, no matter which way it plays out.  I figure one of four things will happen tonight: 

 

        1.   Rodgers will confirm the reports and publicly state that he is through playing for Green Bay and wants to be traded. 

 

        2.  Rodgers will say it’s all a big misunderstanding, that none of these reports came from him, and he hopes things can work out for his return to the Packers. 

 

        3.  Rodgers will simply evade the topic, saying he has no comment. 

 

  1.   Rodgers will be a no show. 

 

Any result other than the first one tells me Rodgers intends to come back.  If QB12 is truly finished with Green Bay, if he really honest and truly does not intend to return, then he has nothing to lose by stating it publicly tonight.  He can shut the door on all the speculation and probably set the wheels in motion for a meaningful trade negotiation. 

 

Doing so, however, removes his deniability for the future.  As long as he does not commit publicly to leaving, he can always come back at a time of his choosing and claim none of these reports came from him.  This would allow him to accept an extended contract with the future guarantees he wants, having made his point about wanting more influence, without coming off as the bad guy.   

 

If he does return under those circumstances, his teammates won’t have a problem with it.  They just want to win.  Whether the fans continue to embrace him is debatable.  But chances are they just want to win as well.   

 

I’d love to see Rodgers return.  I hate to see him go.  But if the man doesn’t want to play here, give him his trade and let’s move on.  The Packers have been great before him, and eventually, they will be great after him.   

 

A large segment of Packer Nation will no doubt stay up late and breathlessly await his comments tonight. 

 

As for me, I won’t be losing any sleep over it.

Should this play out Rodgers is committed to life sans the Packers, the one solid he could do for the team is to stay silent and refrain from any comments which reduce the Packers bargaining position if a trade is the only recourse.

It's the least he could do for an organization that's enriched him to the tune of the quarter of a billion dollars.

Gutey: "I saw your interview last night. Hey, It looks like you are staying in great shape! Say, Aaron I was saddened to hear you say in public what your agent has been communicating with all of us here... that you want out of Green Bay. Listen, about your demands, I wanted you to hear it from me first. You and Jordan Love have been traded to Jacksonville for Trevor Lawrence. Good luck."

Not really sure about that. Look at the players Gutey has brought in.

Za'Darius Smith, Preston Smith, Rashan Gary, Adrian Amos, Darnell Savage, Jaire Alexander, Elgton Jenkins, Billy Turner, Marcedes Lewis, MVS, Allen Lazard, Kingsley. And then some rookies from last year that showed some promise and could have bright futures. Dillon, Deguara, Martin, Runyan, Barnes.
He has brought in A LOT of talent! Lets not forget that the last few years of Thompson, he really let the talent level fall. Gutey has done a very good job of replenishing the talent!

Of the last 4 drafts, only 4 players are no longer on the team...and they are all day 3 draftees from 2018.

Emotional opinions are not facts. Facts are showing Gutey is a very good talent evaluator and he has surrounded himself with a great personnel team.

My gut tells me this will go 1 of 2 ways.

1 - He admits he wants out of GB and will say that he is either getting traded or will retire.

2 - He says very little about it and will say that his future is a beautiful mystery.

My guess is it will be #2. If it is number 2 he will be back in GB.

I'm not going to be losing any sleep either!

This is ar celebrating his friend kmayne's legacy with him. Kind of like the old stars did when Johnny Carson was shutting it down. There was no talk about new movies or tv shows, all about the fun they had behind the scenes in years past. It will be a very large elephant in the room. For fun, they might trot out admshifty for a cameo, and he asks AR if he's seen any good movies lately, just to f _ _k with us.

Between the author and Nostradanus, they have summed up the situation perfectly. Rodgers hasn't publicly asked to be traded because he is still negotiating to see if he can get what he wants from Green Bay and he will say nothing publicly tonight because he will lose negotiating leverage if he does. And this could continue for some time.

Like so many others, you missed the most obvious position Aaron Rodgers has always taken in such matters. What happens at Lombardi Avenue stays at Lombardi Avenue. He’s in the middle of contract negotiations, the Packers haven’t offered him what he wants yet, and that’s where this stands.

The Packers fans who are butthurt about this got suckered by lying Adam Schefter and the ESPN DICks.

AR always lets one of his buddys put the news out. Schefter just put the news out and thats all he does. AR was always way less honest than all the other guys and never kept something inhouse. Maybe he does it never directly, but he does it all the time.

Correct BJP, Rodgers has always remained quiet about his personal matters. All the stories/rumors about him have always been media driven including the current crisis. Would we have seen any of this without Schefter?

I also believe that if there is a trade even in principle it would have been leaked by the Denver or Raider press by now. There is no way the people on the Denver side would not have leaked it by now. Too many people would be involved to keep it secret.

Of course a trade could still happen but I don’t think there has been anything but offers up to this point. I think the Packers want Rodgers back but not on Rodgers terms. If nothing happens in June the next key date will be when Rodgers is due to pay back the $30 million.

As for this evening it will probably be a non-event.
Thanks, Since ‘61

At best, if there are any third party talks going on, it would be about Rodgers exit from the organization. I find that highly dubious given the Packers stance to date. With Rodgers PIO boomeranging back in a big way, the best for him would be not to say anything or show up (either on video or live) on sportscenter. As a practical matter, Rodgers would be insane not to report for training camp if he wants to keep his leverage. I agree, non-event.

Right on, '61.

Also, if there is no trade in early June, there would be less and less time for #12 to establish trust with new receivers. IMO that the infamous Rodgers' " trust requirement" would diminish Rodgers trade value for the 2021 season day-by-day as time before the season dwindles down, making it even more unlikely that the Packers would trade him.

Would hate to see him leave. The entire season will be in the toilet. Can't believe Management, from the President to the GM allowed this to happen. How do you have a returning MVP at QB, and find a way to screw that relationship up. If Rodgers isn't back, they both should be removed by the board. Stupid! The net sum of all of this has been ridiculous. They have what I still think is the best QB in the NFL, and they found a way to alienate the player. Stupid! If he's gone, it's the start of a really bad season for the Packers, and when I say season, I don’t mean year, I mean decade or more. In todays game there are two types of teams, those who have QB’s and compete for championships, by making the playoffs, and then there are “the rest of the teams”. Rodgers leaves GB, we’re one of the “rest of the teams”, and a bad product on the field. You either have a QB, or you don’t. Look at the QB’s in the final 4 teams last year. Enough said. I can’t believe they found a way to alienate a Super Star HOF QB.
He might be a Diva, but he’s our Diva. What a mess!

I think we have an easier time winning the Super Bowl this year with Jordan Love, because he will play within the system. Oh, and he knows how to hand the ball off to his superstar running backs.

What, they’re not superstars? They will be, if you give them the rock.

Love can spin it too. The Packers know this.

and possible inclusions like Mahomes, Jackson, Wilson......

And young guns like Josh Allen....

It seems to me that there are always going to be a bunch of good QBs who can succeed if they have a decent team around them.

The bad teams aren’t bad because their QB is bad, their QB is bad because the team is bad, at least some of the time.

Remember the Seattle loss? Was Rodgers playing special teams that gave up 7 points and a miscue that led to 8 more? Nope all he was doing was taking the team down the field to tie the game. Oh and was he the one who called for two field goals inside the five?
Was he playing run defense against SF?
Did he call single high safety against TB?
A lot of bad Coaching and bad defense not bad QB play cost GB those games.

BTW, if they let this go on without making a trade or coming to an agreement with Rodgers it will only get worse.

Rodgers is a great QB but that doesn't mean it is the end of the Green Bay Packers if he decides to retire or be traded. There will be football after Rodgers. There are 53 athletes that make up a football team not just one. Sure, I'd love to see him return to Green Bay, but if he doesn't then it's time for the team to move on. I am, and always will be, a Packer fan above and beyond any one player, manager, or coach. Looking forward to the 2021 season, with or without Rodgers. Go! Pack! Go!

Regarding his statements tonight, there is the contract negotiation positioning, the possible trade locations, and his FO beefs he could bring up. All current issues. But, I think he is smart enough to know that he may be interested in cultivating/curating is reputation for future endorsement contracts and post football life. I believe he doesn’t want to show the public his conniving deuche-y side as it could effect future earnings. He has to walk that tight rope.

I believe the majority of the guys/gals on this website that are or were Rodgers fans are Packers fans FIRST. If Rodgers truly wants to leave this team after all the adulation he received from loyal Packer fans, the many millions of dollars the paid him to be the quarterback, and the fame he received by being the starting quarterback of the 13 times world champion Packers, he doesn't deserve our loyality and respect. In my eyes, he is no Bart Starr.

I really don't understand !! I don't think there is a single person who writes on this blog who doesn't support Green Bay and who doesn't think about the team first. I will always cheer Green Bay with or without Rodgers. The point, however, is another.
Personally I would never have made this whole mess with AR and would have moved on with him for at least another 4 years. But this is just my thought and it is not necessarily the right thing to do. So I will accept the idea of ​​moving from one of the Q who probably made the history of the sport. OK so let's talk about switching from AR!
A GM with clear ideas first of all does not make us get to today without a solution .....
If he had a solution he would have already swapped AR before the draft (I don't understand how he didn't do it with SF who had choice # 3 !!!) so he could pick players high on the list and be able to set the future already from this season !!!!
Instead we are today .... with a substitute Q (Love) that is not able to start and a reserve Q (Bortles) that .... (I don't know what to say or think I leave all judgment to you)
So ok I think the team's good. And the good of the team tells me that our GM and FO put us in an absurd situation. But I have to give them some credit! They managed to mask their negligence by having all of the narrative focus on AR when it's clear as day that they didn't have a plan B for AR's reaction (which everyone in Green Bay knew would happen)
Now I still ask myself:
For Green Bay's sake who would be better off holding AR or Gute?

I have many friends and relatives who are avid Packer fans.

Rodgers is losing the PR battle...big time. Mostly because his personal reputation precedes him...that he is an arrogant, self centered, petty grudge holder who cannot forgive others and views himself as always right.

It is increasingly difficult to support a man whose employer has paid him over $240,000,000, awarded him with the biggest payday in NFL history....and is still resentful and unsatisfied.

I think Murphy (and the FO) would prefer that Rodgers move on, although they will never say so publicly. Green Bay is unique among 31 other NFL teams in that their avid fans will fill Lambeau with or without Rodgers (whether GB goes 14-3 or 3-14). With Rodgers gone, Murphy can focus on maintaining the corporate bottom line without the distractions of the past 2 years. But what Rodgers' departure will do is marginalize Green Bay as a serious destination for any player interested in moving to a team contending for the playoffs. I just flashed back to the 1980 draft when the Pack drafted Bruce Clark no. 4 over-all - and he opted to play in the CFL rather than the Packers. Talk about the biggest draft bust of all time! OUCH! For all those Packer fans who think the Packers will (eventually) be as good without Rodgers, think back to the last time the Packers played without a HOF QB.

All the "let Rodgers go morons" think that top ten of all time HOF QBs are just lying around waiting to be snatched up. Or that Jordan Love will defy the odds and look like the JR at Utah State instead of the Senior and be the next Patrick Mahomes - a probability that is ridiculously low. The best chance for GB as an organization to win the SB next year is to have #12 back in the green and gold.

All those "let em go morons" are going to have a rude awakening over the next few years unless Gute defied odds and snatched a franchise QB in Jordan Love. I wouldn't bet on it.

We should've been in the Super Bowl this past season, but AR didn't play great in the NFCCG. I doubt that, even if he finishes his contract with GB, that we even sniff the SB with AR unless our defense is Top 5 in the league.

I think Lynn Dickey in his prime would've won the SB with last year's team.

It's tough to win when the OL fails to protect the QB. 5 sacks, 8 Qb hits, and running for his life on other plays. The Packers still managed to score 26 points against one of the best defenses in the league. Any offense or QB goes as far as their OL takes them.
Lynn Dickey was a very good QB, I enjoyed watching him play, but on his best day he wasn't close to Rodgers. Rodgers is a first ballot HOFer and a 3 time MVP. Dickey never won an MVP and is not an HOFer.
He won only one playoff game in Green Bay and that was during the strike shortened season.

Thanks, Since '61

Of course I'm not saying that Dickey is as good as Rodgers. What I was implying is that Dickey was a team player and played within the confines of the offense and game plan - our offenses during Dickey's tenure were usually very good (defenses sucked, though). Put Dickey on our current team and he'd win more than one playoff game.

AR did NOTHING to take advantage of three turnovers while TB, as you stated, got 14 points off ours.

Just like the let Favre go morons did. All else aside, Rodgers isn’t forever. At some point he will pass into history, he just seems to want to precipitate while suggesting it’s someone else’s fault. A very Rodgers move.

Oh, please, Point-Packer, you omnipotent brainiac, tell us all how you are going to bring #12 back in the green and gold.

How is that achieved, exactly? Because he has stated through numerous intermediaries: “Rodgers doesn’t want to play for the Packers.”

Go ahead.

Let me guess, you said the same thing back in 2008.

Rodgers may be a great Football player, but he is not much of a man!

I guess I'm just not feeling it. It's too long for a bumper sticker, and not really meme material.

Try again.

It is nothing but the truth, so you can meme all you want I guess! Rodgers is an overpaid crying little diva type of man child. And I suppose you should be glad you aren't on the bumper.

If you look into the good Rodgers has done with his fortune, you'll find he's helped many people in need of a hand up in the world, and continues to support great causes. Like all of us, he has some shit. It's easy for keyboard warriors to take those shots. A lot of it is simple jealousy. I get it.

I'm not sure what constitutes "a man" in your book (Max McGee? Paul Hornung? Brett Favre?), but I know Rodgers has earned everything he has, has been a good teammate, played hurt, and carried a the greatest franchise in sports for over a decade.

Try again.

Yeah, real men blow all their grocery money on guns and ammunition so that they will be ready for the upcoming race war. And drive around with two over-sized Trump flags on the truck they can't afford like a fucking weirdo.

Whatever you night owls do tonight, just knock yourselves out, okay? Ken and I hit Perkins for the Early Bird Dinner Specials, then kicked back to watch us some Wheel of Fortune, yo. After that? Maybe slam some Werther's candies and work on the Reader's Digest crossword puzzle before hitting the hay. YOLO!

"It’s about character. It’s about culture. It’s about doing things the right way. A lot of this was put in motion last year. The wrench was just kind of thrown into it when I won the MVP and played the way I played last year. So this is just kind of I think the spill out of all that."
Without "people" catching the ball, he doesn't win the MVP.
There's no I in team and maybe Aaron needs to remember that.

No "I" in team, but there's sure one in "DIVA".

Loved how he's trying to come out as the hero here. No examples as to what he thinks "doing things the right way" should be. Maybe it's "giving me control over the roster"?

I love how the guy who is almost universally loved by his teammates (current and past) is a diva. Minus Craig Lemmings, who did nothing without Rodgers, I can't think of a Packer who uttered one negative word about Rodgers.

Its all about control. Rodgers wants to control the end of his career. Gute wants to control who is lining up under center and when.

The NFL has many divas, past and present, Rodgers isn't even in the top 50th percentile. Give me a break.
