Interesting Green Bay / Rogers angle


Recommended Posts

  I read a story about how Green Bay may have drafted Love , in part, because they are tired of Rogers “antics.”  Mainly his passive-aggressive style toward the organization.

  So Rogers, not exactly a touchy-feely type, kinda has to mentor a young Jordan Love.  Even if he ignores him, he will , at least, have a “shadow” behind him named JORDAN.

  Same name as , you know, that younger brother he apparently doesn't talk to.

So now every day at practice, probably like most of his childhood, he’s gonna hear JORDAN this, and JORDAN that.  Its gonna be like fingernails on a chalkboard to him.

  I cant wait.  Haha

I can see that, but then Green Bay doesn't take any receivers in a WR deep draft?  It sounds like cutting your nose off to spite your face.  If that is true they might as well trade Rodgers for a few picks next year.

If Love looks like he can compete I wouldn't be shocked if the Packers don't trade Rogers. Every report I've read, including from Packer insiders is that he's a major problem child. The fact that he stopped talking to his own family shows how important he thinks he is..

That's what happens when you hook up with Danica Patrick    image.thumb.png.75b2ceac1705466b3ecdca9b6086f491.png  :sip:

I don't really buy that at all.  

I think they drafted Love because they really liked him and felt Rodgers future with the team may be around 2-3 years.   I'm in the minority of people because I don't fault the Packers for the pick.  It'll be 3-4 years till we know I guess.

Haha.  Yea, Mr Rodgers.

 

Ha... I always guess wrong on that spelling too. I just happened to see his name so many times in the Love pick.

It’s Fraudgers.

 

Anyway as much as I’m loving this I don’t think it’s anything near as personal as people are trying to make it. The Packers front office is just this big of a mess. They’re in big trouble assuming the other teams in that division can remember how to play football against them for once.

Since Rodgers just signed that huge contract I think I read he is basically untradable for the next two years or GB would have something like 50 million in dead money. That said after 2 years it would be possible and likely given what they have invested in Love.

That would be genius actually, so that means it can’t be what the Packers are thinking lol! His money comes on the back end, and if they could trade him they won’t have to pay him all that money at the end.

I think this is his last season in GB.

 

They can move off his contract next year(2021) for a net $10m cap savings.

 

Yes it would be a $25m(if traded) dead cap hit, but cant look at it like that. $31m dead cap hit if released(not happening)

 

You move on and save $10m more than if he was still on the team.

 

I just don't see him making it through 2 more seasons. He will force his way out next year.

Aaron has a big ego.

 

 

He no doubt took this personally. Not so sure he should. As this is how his career started, but then again, I always thought he was an *.

 

I wouldn't mind letting him end his career in Indy though, depending on how Rivers plays(I expect him to play very well).

If Rivers plays well it will be a 1 last blast year. Then if he plays 1 year to many I could see the Colts ready to draft another quarterback. I’m not even sure Rivers will play that well though. But I hope so. Love the guy.

Maybe that's why Rodgers was left to rot in the green room back on his Draft Day. 

 

Guys like him and Brady.... who carry and endless chip (Sequoia National Forest) on their shoulder over the "persecution" of not being drafted where they think they should have been make me sick!

 

Snot-nosed little :censored2:ards.... why, back in my day we would have taken them out back and kicked their sugary, shiney :censored2:es !!

I feel bad for Love. This is not a good situation to be drafted into. On top of it GB doesn’t like to draft highly skilled players.  

He's been given the keys to the future of a primer NFL franchise. I've got a dollar that says Jordan doesn't feel bad.

 

Rogders will be playing elsewhere ASAP-which could be 2 years out, but it's going to happen. Frankly, if the Colts don't have it figured out by then, sign me up.

It’s a new regime in Green Bay. Once they change quarterbacks it will be a complete makeover. Meanwhile if there is any doubt about the future all Love has to do when it comes time to sign his next deal is merely ask if they will draft a skill player or 2 lol! And if he doesn’t make it that far he’s still ok unless he straight gets cut and not picked up by somebody else.

I at meant if he fails once he becomes the starter some of that has to be put on the organization.

He should pull a Farve and go to a division rival but it would be the Bears instead of the Vikings.

 

I am sure the Bears or the Lions would love to have him. Rodgers plays real well indoors, would extend his life if he goes to the Lions. Same reason why I think they'd be glad to send him to the Colts, especially if Eason does not pan out as more than a backup.

We need to find our future not keep recycling old QB.

Ha ha.   I like it.  So if we do Rivers for 2 years and then Rodgers for 2 years, who is in line next?

If we feel the old QB can contribute, I don’t see a problem. If we can get 1 SB out of it, no brownie points for “I won a SB by drafting and developing my own QB”.

I wonder if a team can develop a reputation for being a last stop for aging great QB's?    I imagine a Superbowl win or 2 would do it.

I stand by what I said. This year with Rivers is unique with Luck retiring and buys us time. We don’t need to keep bringing old QB in. They wouldn’t either. Rivers is a special case with his relationship with the coaching staff. Rogers wouldn’t fit here at all. Not every QB will.

I disagree.  I think Reich and Rodgers would work well.  

I know this conversation is really just fantasy, but I would be fine getting 2-3 years out of aging great QB's for a decade or 2.

Him going to the Colts is a real possibility depending on how our GM sees it. Bears will not pick up the 5th year option on Trubisky.

    • I view him as mediocre.  Might not be fair to him but that's my take.  You can win with mediocre if you have a talented roster but there's a cap on your ceiling.   Good chance that Ballard knows this and will make a change if things don't go the way he wants in the playoffs.
    • If you look at how the trend is heading nowadays it seems like GM has become a complementary role to the Head Coach.  Where they basically work hand in hand with the coach or maybe even for them in scouting the class and shaping their board.  But I think the old model, the classic GM at the top ensuring you have that year to year consistency (and maybe even setting the course on what type of team he wants) has its advantages.   Ballard's a good GM.  Having that in place is really important for your long term health of the franchise.  So I think from that perspective the franchise is immediately better off than half to two-thirds of the rest of the league.   I think what he's missing is the right coach.  He needs someone more current, more creative.  Not necessarily the trendy offensive mind but a head coach who is young and gives you a tactical advantage on one side of the ball and has a chance to grow into the total package.  There's some good options out there, lot of young coordinators filtering in to the league now, but Ballard can also look at college.   Bottom line is I think we're in good hands at the top.  The roster is strong.  Lot of positives just find the right guy to tie it all together.
    • Not often but it can happen.  Bears D are the reason they won in 85
    • Rodgers has several years left  Rivers will probably be here 1 more tops
    • I wonder whose expectations are the reference on this.  Make a colored chart, put it up on twitter, and, well, it's true right?   Then I realize I'm getting old and shouldn't look at anything that is termed social media.
