NYRaider Posted February 3 Share Posted February 3 Just now, Geezy said: It would’ve helped because the whole league wouldn’t know we were committed to trading him. We could’ve let the deadline pass and still trade him. Now our hands are tied. They showed their hand too soon imo. It’s not even all about DC, it’s the lack of direction. And if it’s Mark meddling then we have even bigger problems. It’s not personal with these guys, I hope they prove my doubts wrong and I’d be their biggest fan. The constant ineptitude has been frustrating, and I’m just not seeing the vision yet. Hopefully this off-season shows us the direction we’re headed. We’re in a confusing spot as an org, top heavy with no depth, but will have to give up extra assets to get a QB, when we really need to spread them around all through the roster. Even if we do land Rodgers, he’s eating up cap, going to cost a couple nice picks. We’re not a QB away. Don’t even get me started with the whole “culture” element lol I do agree that they could've handled it better for sure and not committed to moving on until they were able to assess what the QB market was going to look like. Holding onto him would've limited our cap flexibility though and likely would've meant us punting next season because the market could've dried up before we were able to move DC. I wish we would've held onto him until we knew we could upgrade though. And the decision to bench him wouldn't have been as weird if we benched other key guys as well but it also would've been kind of unfair to JJ/Adams to ask them to sacrifice record breaking seasons. This offseason will be crucial in defining what the team is going to be now and in the future. IIRC Rodgers will only have a $15M cap hit if he's traded and is also willing to rework his deal. I'd just hate to give up multiple firsts, we need to build a young core. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
