The Green Bay Packers suffered a brutal loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday Night Football. Their 20-16 defeat ended their improbable playoff push and sent Green Bay packing into the off-season. The loss, understandably, received heavy criticism on social media. This was a game that Green Bay could have easily won if they didn’t beat themselves. Penalties, ejections, and mental errors ultimately cost the Packers a shot at a playoff run. Lil Wayne has made it clear for years that he is a Packers fan, however, he no longer seems to be an Aaron Rodgers fan. He took to social media to share his opinion on the Packers the day after their brutal loss.

While there have been some rumblings about Aaron Rodgers retiring after this season, nothing is imminent as of now. Matt LaFleur was asked if it’s a given Aaron Rodgers is back next season, said: “Yeah, in my mind absolutely. Ultimately he’s gonna decide that.” Aaron Rodgers had a down year in 2022 after coming off two straight MVP seasons. He finished with:
- 17 games started (most in career)
- 64.7 completion percentage (12th best in his career)
- 3,695 passing yards (13th best in career)
- 26 passing touchdowns (12th best in career – tied)
- 12 interceptions (second most in career)
Overall a pretty brutal season for the four-time MVP quarterback. With the departure of Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and even Equanimeous St. Brown the Packers passing attack was going to look much different this year. However, with Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, and Sammy Watkins as three veterans leading the group to start the year, there was hope. Midway through the season the Packers started to realize they also have something special with rookies Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson. Still, the passing attack was never able to get back to its 2020 or even 2021 form.
If Aaron Rodgers does decide to move on from the game of football, it will be Jordan Love’s chance to show he can be the future of the franchise. There have been fans clamoring for Love to get the opportunity to play ever since the Packers fell to 4-8 on the year. Due to the fact that Green Bay was never eliminated from playoff contention until week 18, the Packers never started Love to further evaluate him. The fact of the matter is, if Aaron Rodgers wants to come back, he will be the starting quarterback for the Packers. With free agency, trades, and the 2023 NFL draft, the Packers offense could be revamped for a 2023 run. Fans like Lil Wayne may not like it, but it is the reality of the situation. Especially given the fact that Aaron Rodgers is under contract through the 2026 NFL season.
