Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers certainly seem to be at a crossroads. After a 8-9 season in which they missed the Playoffs, the Packers are in a position where they must make some very tough decisions. Do they move on from a four-time MVP to the young quarterback they drafted to replace him? Do they move on from the franchise’s all-time leading scorer, Mason Crosby? What contracts will they restructure, and what players will they let go?
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Packers already have an idea of what they want to do, at least in terms of the quarterback position.
Schefter Claims the Packers Want to Move On, and Rodgers Know It
In a recently published article on ESPN, Schefter writes:
League sources are convinced that the franchise prefers to move on from Rodgers, just as it once did with Brett Favre. Those sources also believe that Rodgers is well aware of the Packers’ feelings on the situation.”
Adam Schefter, of course, was the one who first reported on Rodgers’ tension with the organization. He broke that news on the first day of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Jordan Love Time?
Former Packers full back, John Kuhn, made an interesting point on his show, “Nine 2 Noon,” this past week. He reminded his co-hosts and fans that when the Packers made the decision to move on from Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers, the team had just lost the NFC Championship Game at home in overtime. They were, by all accounts, a really good team. This year’s team, however, was 8-9 and missed the playoffs. If there was ever a time to move on, he argues it makes sense for it to be now.
Jordan Love, of course, played very well this past season. This was most noticeable in the Packers’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Rodgers had to leave the game due to a rib injury and was replaced by the former first round draft pick. In that game, Love completed six of nine passes for 113 yards and a touchdown.
In limited playing time this past year, Love had a completion percentage of 66.7% and a quarterback rating of 112.2. Coaches and teammates say he is ready.
Perhaps we should all be ready, too.
