Aaron Rodgers Depreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

I find the assumptions fans and the media make about the McCarthy-Rodgers relationship interesting.

Everyone assumes Rodgers frustration is with McCarthy and the play calling and game plan, inferring from comments to draw a conclusion.  

And I get it, as fans we don't like watching the team lose, so someone needs to be at fault.  McCarthy as the coach is a more satisfying scapegoat than the past GM who wasn't able to maintain a full stable of receivers where even the #3 could have the possibility of leading the league in touchdown receptions.

We ignore comments from Rodgers like this:

“I think there's an agreement with what we're doing,” said Rodgers, who completed 21 of 30 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns, but converted just 3 of 11 third downs. “Obviously, we meet multiple times a week on what we're trying to do. The frustration is in the execution. The execution hasn't been great, especially in situational offense.

“When you compare it to years past, we've always been really good on third down and really good in the red zone, and we're just not this year.

 

Maybe the issue is the offense has the ingredients to be good in the future, but is a bit half done at this point, needing some more experience and another player or two?  

Imagine what this team would be if they had gone out and gotten Jarvis Landry in the off season?  Imagine what it becomes if they go get a guy like that this off season.

 

 

Rodgers is frustrated.  But he is up front with saying it is the execution.   With being dependent on rookies,  having to throw side arm for some unknown reason, and  being too slow with the knee injury to escape the pass rush like he used to, there is ample reason for him to be frustrated without it being McCarthy.

I live in Denver and have seen what real crap QB play is the last three years.  I think you all need to relax a little bit.

We will trade Aaron Rodgers and Nick Perry to you for Bradley Chubb and your next two first round picks as long as the Broncos somehow take on the dead cap we would otherwise owe Rodgers.

I am not a Broncos fan.  I am a Green Bay transplant who proudly flies a Packer flag in my front yard during the season, but Elway would make a deal for 12 in a second.  He knows the value of a top notch starting QB for a franchise.

Look Aaron is not infallible and yes he misses guys sometimes and has bad games like any other QB in the league, but to actually suggest that the Packers would be better off without him is absolutely insane to me.

He's actually talking about trading him in Madden ;)

He's a broken record at this point.
