The Lass Word: Rodgers May Be Having Too Much Fun To Leave

Post game comment might hint at his future plans.

It was first and goal at the six yard line.  Aaron Rodgers takes the snap, drops back, and immediately looks to throw a quick pass to running back Aaron Jones in the left flat.  The same play worked for a score earlier in the game.  But this time Jones gets picked up quickly by the defense and is not open.  Davante Adams, Allen Lazard and Robert Tonyan are all covered up by the congestion over the middle in the center of the end zone. Rodgers comes back to the right and spots Josiah Deguara crossing the end zone left to right.  But Bears defensive back Kindle Vildor has his route cut off and Rodgers senses that attempting a throw might risk an interception. 

 

Realizing his last option is to tuck it and run the ball himself, Rodgers has a problem.  Linebacker Alec Ogletree has an angle on him.  So the quarterback takes a few steps forward and pump fakes, as though he’s going to try to hit Deguara anyway.  Ogletree buys the fake and freezes for a second.  It’s enough for Rodgers to accelerate around the edge and beat him to the corner of the end zone for the critical score that basically puts the game away. 

 

A jubilant Rodgers does his trademark belt gesture, and then gazes up into the crowd.  He would later say that, at that moment, he spotted a female Bears fan giving him “the double bird” from her seat in the front row.  Rodgers then created what would become national headlines by screaming at the woman in particular, and Bears fans in general, “I (expletive) own you.”  He then sidewinded along the end zone, shouting repeatedly “I own you.  I still own you.” 

 

It was the kind of atypical, emotional outburst that comes from a seventeen year rivalry.  Seventeen years of coming to this stadium, dealing with the roar of these fans clamoring for your demise, and breaking their hearts time after time.  Players tell us there’s no feeling quite like it.    The joy on Rodgers’ face as he was engulfed by his teammates and escorted back to the bench spoke volumes.  It seemed clear that, for him, there is nothing better than being a Green Bay Packer and beating the Chicago Bears on their own turf.  He has been here long enough that he feels it the way we do.  It’s become part of his DNA, the way it is part of ours. 

 

In his post game comments, Rodgers tried to play down his proud exclamation to the crowd.  He testified to his respect for Bears fans and said he loves to play at Soldier Field.  “I love this rivalry.  It’s been a lot of fun over the years” he told the media.   

 

But it was a subsequent comment that most caught my attention.  Asked if he thought this would be his last game at his arch rival’s venue, he replied “I don’t think this will be my last one, but I’ve enjoyed every single one of them.” 

 

Wait, What?  This won’t be his last one?  What is he saying?  Is that a hint that he is now leaning to returning to the Packers after this season?  Am I reading too much into this?  Surely he can’t be referring to coming back to Soldier Field playing for a team other than Green Bay.  It could never be the same. 

 

"I don’t think this will be my last one." 

 

Hmmmm.  There are a few other tea leaves to read.  He has described his relationship with management as “a work in progress.”  Well, that’s better than saying nothing has changed from the contentious standoff of the past summer.  He has made reference to “growth” in management’s approach, whatever that may mean.  Throughout the team’s current five game win streak he has been a model of leadership.  He hasn’t said or done anything to undermine the vibe in the locker room.  And he seems to be genuinely enjoying the ride.  He has a blast joking with the beat writers during his weekly sessions.  He’s clearly all in. The team has been aggressive at bringing in established veterans, something the future Hall of Famer has been adamant about.   

 

Rodgers’ gargantuan cap hit in 2022 has everyone taking for granted this is his last dance with the Green and Gold.  But that assumes he will want to force his way out by refusing to renegotiate.  If Rodgers is willing, the two parties should be able to work out a deal that results in an extremely light 2022 cap hit, and pushes cash into the future. 

 

Will the team want him back?  Much likely depends on how this season plays out.  But If Rodgers leads the Packers to, or close to, the Super Bowl, it’s hard to see how they would want to trade him away and transition into full rebuilding mode.  Jordan Love has flashed, but he’s not ready.  Is management prepared for the team to take its lumps for a couple years while Love gains experience?   

 

I realize I am stirring up old business, but I can’t help myself.  I know I’m not supposed to think about the future.  We Packer fans have made a collective pact to just enjoy the ride this year and not worry about beyond, right?   

 

But I have made the critical mistake of letting Rodgers’ comment after the Bears game give me hope that the Last Dance may have an encore....or two.   

 

Guess I’m setting myself up for disappointment.  After all, that’s what fans do.  Rodgers may own Bears fans, but in Green Bay, we own the team.  Do we dare let ourselves think our most valuable employee might not be lost after all?

I always found it difficult to sweep things that define things and moments, under the rug. The actions of a person should not be ignored because they usually come back to hurt you again, or by watching them do what they should/could have done and didn't. Rodgers seems to have completely distanced himself from that moment and now uses the same to bask in the fans willing loss of memory.

Given that Rodgers did almost exactly the same thing to Khalil Mack in one of the Packers-Bears games last year - maybe he mistakenly over-respected the D in the NFCCG? I’ll need to re-watch that play, but I’d wonder where Devin White was, and if he was in Rodgers field of vision at all (white’s so fast he almost apparates sideline to sideline!).

So would the Bears but Rodgers pump-faked a pass and it slowed them. The same should/could have been last year in the NFCCG. Rodgers is a 16-year pro and a pump-fake is a tool and he didn't use it. Whether he would make it or not isn't the issue really, its that he didn't use his doesn't miss-a-trick mentality so often raved about. He simply punked out.

Typical of you. If Redmon hadn't dropped the pick six Brady threw to him, then the entire next series never happen. Leatherhead's right. So many chances in that entire defensive set to get off the field at the end of the half. (That doesn't even explain MLF fail on the offensive side in the last 2:00.

I think it starts with somehow re-signing Davante Adams. If they can figure out a good structure for his new contract this year and down the line, then re-sign Rodgers next year while pushing a most of his cap hits into 2023 and beyond. That would do wonders for our 2022 cap situation. Signing Alexander long term next year would also help.

Obviously hes gotta wanna stay and then most likely take less than he's worth but it's definitely doable from this fans perspective.

Those new TV deals will be kicking in soon so with some creative accounting they can definitely keep most of the team together for the next couple of seasons if they want to.

I guess we shall see.

OK. I see that here is 90% of fans who wants Big Ben scenario and next 20 years of incompetence.

If you do not see, decline started. Or maybe you see but you do not want to accept. If Packers trade Jordan Love the question is who will be their QB after Aaron Rodgers finally stop playing. You would like seasons of young potential QBs who will be chewed and spit out season after season. And Packers will become incompetent team like Jags, Jets, Lions, Browns, Colts etc. What happened to Seatle before they got lucky and found Wilson? What happened to Cardinals until they found Murray? To name 2 franchises that get lucky. If you'll wait to long for rebuilding, rebuilding will be long long drought.

So, you want that? OK.

And do you really believe that Aaron Rodgers will play for 5 mil per season? Or that Adams will accept significant home discount? Good luck with that!

Last what I read was that Packers are next year (2022) 50 milions over the SC. So, I would like TGR to explain to everybody what is the possibility for Packers to go under the SC plus you'll need space to sign new draft class, plus you'll have David with huge SC hit, plus Z will demand huge contract, Jaire Alexander too. Maybe AJ will test the market for his share of money and Aaron Jones will command huge salary. Not to go further...

You all must be joking...

Not picking on you but I'm so tired of the "if you want to work around the cap you can" Its just not true, it catches up to teams. It's the media, agents and players mantra for their own best interests. Sure your right, you can just keep pushing it out and create "Void" years but in the end there is a hard cap number each season that has to be met. Sure they can keep AR and resign DA, that's about 80 MUSD per year or nearly 40% of your cap, easy to let Z go, thats 18 MUSG but who after that? There's not enough small contracts/limited dead cap to get there. Bakh, Kenny,Z are the next 3. Cutting Turner, Amos, Lowery, King, Preston, Lancaster, even AJ 9 mil aren't even full cuts as they have had their contracts back loaded so you still take the cap space hit. It's just not feasible. Please go to sportrac or overthecap and take a look, u can actually try to manipulate it yourself and see if you can make it happen. 2023 isn't looking so great either....

It's not an accident that Gute announced that the organization was going all in 2019. Even without the double whammy of Covid and flat Cap, it was going to be next to impossible to sign third player contracts. Hence, the non signing of Beluga and Lindsay. Rodger's contract structure made it next to impossible to keep him without major concessions on his part. Add covid and Cap depression to the mix, and the front office would be forced into a major retooling of the roster in the best case. Plus the TV money does not kick in until 2023, which means the Packers will have a 'gap year' without any serious additional revenue. We are about to find out how good Brian Gutekunst really is as Packer GM...

…I’m an ARod apologist and I want him to retire as a Packer. I do believe him to be somewhat arrogant and self absorbed, but who cares, it’s not like we’re fish’n buddies. I also agree with Vic Ketchem, when he said Rogers is the most talented QB he’s ever witnessed.

Moreover, I agree with Taryn, ARod should have scored against the Bucs like he did against the Bears. The two plays looked identical and I had a flashback to the Bucs games when he ran to the corner and scored.

Just my opinion from memory, Those two rushing plays by AR were completely different. He had all sorts of space on Sunday, against TB it was closer to to the Goalline, everything was more compacted and he hadn't faked to the left earlier in the play. Not saying he couldn't of made it, though I don't think so. Remember the play ends where he starts to slide and if he tried to dive through the guy/s he wouldn't of gotten far, just crunched. I do think AR hesitated in the Tampa game and it was over after that, Sunday was an easy scamper and didn't even get touched until he was already in by the only guy that was even close.

I'm not a Rodgers apologist. I've questioned his ability to lead/get along with others over the years. But if the Packers can get him back for a reasonable cap number over the next three or four years you absolutely do that, unless you are just totally convinced that Jordan Love is the next great QB. I'm not in a position to judge ANY of those things. What I do wonder, what I would like to see TGR breakdown, is just how possible it is to keep Rodgers and Adams around if the Packers wanted to do so. My suspicion is that it would be pretty dang hard, if not impossible.

In two years, do you think AR will be like Brady or like Rothlisberger? I'd bet good money on Rothlisberger, because Brady is a huge outlier. Signing AR to a contract for four years is insane, unless two of them are void years. TGR would know better, of course.

I would add one more factor to "Love and money". Do you want to rebuild or reload? If the Packers keep Rodgers for another 4-5 years, Love will be gone by then and the Packers will get nothing for Rodgers when he retires. That means a full on rebuild without extra draft choices.

If they trade Rodgers after this season for a bunch of draft choices, they will have Love and those extra draft choices and the money to resign their good, young players. Much more like a reload.

The present or the future.....?? Tough choice for Gute to have to make.

Here we go again, as history repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, the second as farce. Just as Favre openly flirted with retirement for years, until the Packers finally pulled the plug on him and went with Rodgers, who took his lumps for a couple of years before blossoming into an elite QB. Will the Packers and Rodgers reverse course? Will the team decide to ride with Rodgers until his game falls off a cliff? Or will they gut it out, trade Rodgers for a premium price, and move on? Even if the team wins the SB, this would only enhance Rodgers' value. Because if they didn't think Love was ready, would they have kept him around this long? Love is still contractually tied to the Packers for two years, so there is time to make a decision. Personally, time to move on. Take your lumps, but let Rodgers and Adams both go, use the added salary cap to add some players, and not rebuild, but reload.

Just because Rodgers said "I don’t think this will be my last one." in response to the question about this being his last game in Chicago doesn't mean he's planning on playing in Chicago again for the Packers. If he was thinking "Packers", then he might've used a different verb, something like "I'm not planning on this being my last one" or maybe "I'm looking forward to beating the Bears here again next year." Or, he could've added "for the Packers" to his answer: "I don’t think this will be my last one for the Packers."

AR's answer could simply mean that, depending on which team he's traded to, he could be returning to Chicago as a member of THAT team and not GB.

Yes, Ken, you're reading too much into AR's answer.

My Guy, was this a AR please like me peice or what? That was an easy run, the poor defender doesn't have a chance when the QB can pump and freeze him and from there is was smooth sailing, no one even close. No one was open? maybe not wide open but he did make the right choice with it being such a wide open opportunity.
Now we all get the comment but come on, after what 17 years he hasn't been flipped off and much worse a thousand or thousands actually of times he can't control himself enough to let let out a I f-ing own you to the fans, followed up a few more times. Whats really telling to me is the"I" ...still all about him. Then to call it just headlines, sure it was headlines, it was a pretty classless thing to say, if it were to happen to us I wonder what the reaction would be. As usual the media reacts in accordance with their bias toward the player so in this case it was fine. Its certainly not the biggest deal either way but we all know how AR chooses his words, IMO it was an insight on how he feels, can you imagine how he feels about us fans? Similar in a way most likely.

Now on "not his last one" What do you expect him to say? seriously, plus he might just be back with a different team. Just because its "not the same" he response holds its meaning.

Lets get back to reality - Aging QB who is in decline approaching 40 YO. The salary cap in 2023 isn't just bad its devastating. He has already stated he wants to be paid like an MVP on a Multi year contract, The Packers have 2 players consider #1 at their positions up for FA and extension in DA and JA. You have an QB option that while he won't be AR out of the gate he has all the tools and has passed the eyeball test to date, Oh and he's over 40MUSD cheaper. Can you imagine the Roster one can build with that money? On top of all that you have some trade value, though declining, in moving AR in 2022, thats gone if you even keep him 1 year more.

Full rebuild? that makes no sense. Gute has done a masterful job of avoiding that, now when you lose one of the best of all time it will have to set them back but as already shown in posts they are actually loaded. Is losing Z coming back from back surgery that big a deal now that Gary has filled his shoes?

If by chance they win the SB it would be the perfect time for him to be traded, for both parties. You don't practically sabotage your own teams Draft and FO and expect everything to be fine. The FO and coaches will play nice, just as the QB is for the most part, they are professionals. It doesn't mean they are back together. Sound like the poor kid who because he parents don't fight anymore since they divorced it means they are getting back.

All that said it really does come down to the fiscal end, aging QB and potential QB whose time it has come to see if he actually is worth an extension.

We have similar thinking. People do not want to see what they do not like or what is contrary to their wishes. And again it will not be Aaron Rodgers or Davante Adams mistake, it will be Gutekunst mistake for them. "There must be a way how to keep them both!" is the most copied sentence in their "explanation". Of course it won't be AR or DA mistake. They want to be paid for their excellency (with AR still counting on past services and DA counting on stellar plays), and that is OK. But it will be neither Brian Gutekunst mistake. It will be the life under the Cap and tendencies to make NFL as competitive as it can be. Sometimes you are on the top, sometimes you are not.

SO, the question is, do you prefer Ted Thompson approach, or you like more Brian Gutekunst approach? First was mostly refusing to use FA, Brian is, as he promise, in every f***ing discussion for upgrade team on FA market. You should decide what way you prefer, because I remember lot of objections on TT way. Then you were supporting BG way. But the result of those 2 way we now knows. 1st way is to be at the top, but seems like you never jump over the hump of it. BG may jump over the hump this year, but there is no warranty for that. The consequence of the BG way is that after few years, you have to rebuild or, if you prefer, reloading the team.

That is that. Nothing else.

Wow I’ve never seen a more butthurt comment in my life, did your girl cheat with Rodgers or something?? My guy, coach guy, get this.. He doesn’t owe you anything but scoring points and winning games and he’s definitely allowed to talk smack to people giving him the bird.. Are these guys playing chess or football, wow..

Rodgers loves to manipulate the discussion. None of us knows for sure what the future will bring. With the string of games coming up, some of which the Packers are likely to lose, we'll see what his commitment is after that.

My take is this might be his last season, period. He has a long future after football, likely in broadcasting. He has a relationship with one of Hollywood's rising stars.

Remember the 50/50 comment early on about retiring?

He really has little left to prove and possibly much to lose should he be seriously injured.

Why are we even talking about this crap. We're barely a third of the way in to the current season, sitting at 5-1. The Pack needs to get to 6-1, get healthy and prepare for some tough sledding ahead. Let's talk about this season and the upcoming game(s). No use worrying about what happened last year and what may happen next year. GPG!

Fully in agreement with you TX!

Let's just play game by game and see where the chips fall come February/March.
