Now Rodgers is upset with the Packers and doesn't want to come back... Does that mean he wanted to be traded and is mad the Packers turned down the Niners' offer? Could that offer be back on the table?

This is insanity.

Buyer's remorse.  They thought they liked a Qb before they made the trade up, now having second thoughts.  Just speculating.

Apparently Rodgers has told the packers he wants out . Adam Schefter reported it so it has some truth to it.

Packers getting that third pick is insanity. Then drafting another QB After drafting Love lol.

 

I was just thinking, what would they do with #3? I think they'd trade out and get a bunch of picks for it.

It's been speculated ever since the loss to the Bucs in the playoffs-

I think that Jordan Love thing widened the divide between Rodgers and LaFleur. Rodgers only leverage to force a trade is retirement, though.

 

*****

OTOH, maybe the Pats not trading for J. Love like a picture suggested ticked Aaron off even more...  {wink wink} :sip:

Depends on how much they believe in Jordan Love I guess and how much they like the QBs of this draft... although... it's kind of insane to all of a sudden be in position to draft one of the top 3 and I bet they haven't done nearly enough work on them to be sure in their choice.

One report said that the 49ers were inquiring about Rodgers, that there was no formal offer. I'm not sure what to think about this. Maybe there will be a surprise tonight, as the 49ers are being secretive about everything.

I don't think this is coming out of nowhere. I also don't know when that reported conversation with the Niners might have taken place. If it was a couple weeks ago, the Packers have had plenty of time to do their work on the top QBs. And they've known for a long time that Rodgers isn't gruntled. 

 

We'll see. Odds are nothing happens. But still, this is pretty crazy.

IMO what happened is - Rodgers told them he wants out and let them find a good trade partner trying to save his legacy with the team(not to be known as a malcontent who forced his way out). Then 49ers made the call, Packers refused the offer and didn't tell Rodgers... now Rodgers learns there was a real possibility for him to go play in San Francisco and is * off and going public with his trade request in order to try to force their hands knowing there is a realistic trade partner for him that he likes.

Btw, if I were the Packers I wouldn't trade Rodgers to the Niners. Same conference, a long time rival legacy team, SB ready... Basically, anywhere but the Niners.

Well it depends what do you want? Do you want Eli Manning or do you want Deshaun Watson

I can certainly understand why they wouldn’t want to trade Rodgers — even at his age, even with Love there, and even for Jimmy G etal and #3.


But they could really end up snookering themselves here if their relationship with AR is so bad that he’d just as soon become a game show host as go back under center in Green Bay.

 

If nothing else, this certainly ratchets up the drama of tonight!

I don’t understand that tweet.

 

He wanted an extension, they offered an extension....”No Deal” as in, he turned the extension down?

He probably was practicing to become a host for "Deal or No Deal"

Ya know, I often wondered about a guy who changes facial hair styles every month  (beard, half beard, no, a beard again, how about just a mustache for a while, and then there was the mutton chops for a brief time) and stays single for a long time.  The timing of this looks like he's deliberately trying to be a pain in the boot.

Agreed.  You move him to the Raiders where he'll waste away slowly while they fumble around trying to put a team around him.  Gruden should also be good for a windfall of picks.

Can’t believe the Niners gave away a ton of asset to get Lance.  Why didn’t they go after Wentz if they wanted a duel threat QB.  Wentz exact same system as Lance except more proven.  I can’t believe they went with Lance??

Successfully executed smoke screen. For a month.

What a wild wild month. So... now back to our previous discussion... is this eggs on the Schefters of the world's face? Or will they sell it as a last minute change of heart?

Me on SF pick?

 

"What happens? My hypothetical scenario is BB and Patriots offer up a #3, the 49er's counter to get a 2. Pats accept, get Jimmy G. back to the Patriots for their second round pick to run the Weis/McDaniels offense he has already learned. San Fran takes either Fields, or Jones at slot #3."


I was wrong here. No question.

 

"If it's not Jones, I see the Pats furiously trying to reel him (Jones) in somehow. If it is Jones, I see the Pats making a play at Jimmy G."

 

Well, it didn't appear to have to be furiously, as he (Jones) fell right into their lap. BB and JMcD couldn't be more happy, me thinks.  Oh well, NE getting the train back on the tracks.

I will claim the W here. Just watched Shannahan's press-conference. He pretty much confirmed everything I assumed - he said there was no truth at all to the reports that they traded up for Mac Jones initially and Lance made a last minute push. Said process started in January and they were very high on Lance from the beginning He said nobody knew anything(friends, coaches) and everybody was just guessing(said it was just him and Lynch who knew). He said it was amusing to him watching the media present opinions and guesses as facts. Said they didn't correct them because they thought they can use those misconceptions to their advantage.

Also interesting tidbit - they confirmed they made a call for Rodgers' availability because they heard he might be available, but that was quickly squashed and their interest was turned down immediately.

"It's gonna be Mac Jones." 

 

I don't think you can walk away from that one. It's egg for sure. There was always the possibility that reporting was wrong, but I don't remember Schefter making such a definitive statement without it being really solid. Maybe he just got too comfortable on this one.

    • Taking NE and Brady out of this because I think what they did was unique.   My observation is that the teams with the elite QB have more success BEFORE that QB gets paid his contract than after he gets paid.   SB teams have won, IMO, because they have gotten elite play from some players at the same time not compensating those players for the elite play.  They produce more than what the team pays them that season.   SEA was better when Russell Wilson was playing near elite QB before his contract. PITT was better when Ben was younger not being paid. I know injuries played a part, but the early Grigson Luck years were much better for the Colts than the $125M years. KC rode an elite Mahomes on a rookie contract to domination over recent seasons. BUFF is enjoying Allen's low pay day relative to his talent and play.  What will happen to them when he gets paid?   (and another version of that formula, even though Denver paid PM, they got a huge boost from an elite Von Miller playing an impactful position on a cheap rookie contract)   OTOH.   NO has been paying Brees and hasn't quite gotten there consistently. ATL pays Ryan and got their once. PITT has been playing Ben but they have not been an elite team with him at that pay scale. I suspect that Lamar will never earn top tier QB money, yet BALT will be right there with all of those teams.   We made our bed when we picked a G at 6, and will pay him elite Olineman money.  I don't see where we are going to be putting the ball in our QBs hands every play and ask him to win the game when we are paying a G to also run block at an elite level.  We will probably always be more of a running team than the average playoff team because of our investment in our G.  Taking the ball out of our QBs hands means that we will not also never truly need that top guy.   And we will win with Wentz if he outplays what has been invested in him.  If he plays like a 3rd rounder and future 1st (just for starting, IOW, because he happens to be the best QB on the roster) then we probably wont go deep into the playoffs. He will always be compensated less than top tier simply because he will be getting old.   Maybe we should have taken Fields and hoped he gave us elite play on the cheap before we'd have to decide between him and Nelson.   
    • I know what a strange baseball season so far. The Cubs have a good team overall, we are like all the other good teams in the NL basically. We have our ups and downs but that is baseball with a 162 game season. The only team in the NL right now that can say they have played great are the Giants at 45-25. Looking at all the good teams in the NL, they are all 8 games above .500 with the exception of the Dodgers who are 42-27. Cubs are 39-31, Padres 40-32, and Mets 35-27. So the other teams fans feel our misery when a loss happens as well. We really need to just start playing more consistent. It needs to start tomorrow with the Marlins who we are much better than.   If someone told me before the season started that we would be in 1st place in the NL Central through 70 games on June 19th, I would take it. That is the extreme positive way to look at this.
    • Who wouldve guessed that the only win for NL Central tonight would be the Pirates beating the Indians 
    • Brewers just lost to the Rockies again , we are still in 1st place in the NL Central. Cards lost as well and the Reds are down 5-2 to the Padres.
    • It was that comebacker. That seemed to effect his play after. Hopefully he's alright and returns back to before
