    Pretty sad when you think about it. Though I'd be interested to see how King is in what will be his second season.

    Here we go;
    Report: Aaron Rodgers Frustrated, Emotional over Packers' Lack of Communication
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...om&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=editorial

    The Packers might have lost the chance for a home team discount by impressing upon Aaron Rodgers that this isn't a family, it's a business. There is no reason not to be the highest paid player in the league.

    Notice NONE of this is coming from Rodgers mouth though?

    Last thing I saw HIM say was "trust the process, there has been communication from both sides" in regards to his next contract.

    He's sniping here and there because he's an emotional guy that feels slighted every time the wind blows. That's also what makes him great. It whatever

    but yeah, it's a business, and thus demanding a billion dollars chokes the team's payroll

    Also it being a business should've been evident when got the job due to a shitshow with his predecessor

    He isn't referencing what you posted at Bleacher Report but still

    Sounds more sad than disgruntled or annoyed.

    Rodgers biggest plus was he likes what he does. Part of enjoying something is enjoying the people you do it with. When a person stops enjoying what they do it usually isn't long before they stop doing it. He's worth 30 million and could live comfortably on that. He has said he wants to play until he's 40 even if he has to go to another team to do that. Aaron seems to be enjoying his travels with Danica. He might find something he enjoys more than football.

    It would be in the Packers interest to make him feel like he belongs there as an important part of the team. After last season, it's very clear that Rodgers is the team. Maybe McCarthy blames Van Pelt for Hundley's troubles last season and he needed a new quarterback coach. Is Cignetti an upgrade or just someone McCarthy was familiar with and available when the Giants let him go?

    To me, it appears that McCarthy is surrounding himself with cast off coaches.

    I have no idea what you're talking about. Now that I've read his statements, it's clear what all of this is - a non story put together by writers in need of a story in the off-season

    It's BleacherReport scraping the bottom of the barrel until the draft.

    Yep. I loved the line about him knowing that as a qb he'll outlast people. He's no dummy

    So Jimmy will be worth a shit this year in fantasy and we aren’t limited to Ertz or Gronk?

    He’s still one of the highest paid TEs in the league lol, not like he’s making peanuts now to play here

    Going to be fun to have a beast TE though, it’s been awhile

    Rodgers stuff is not a big deal imo

    No interest in Dez. I’d rather they have just kept Jordy if they’re going to pay a declining WR thats good in the redzone. Probably gonna use the draft to take one, preferably someone with speed

    Dez on a one year deal would help for other immediate draft needs and shore up the WR position for a year. We could go Pass Rush, Corner, ILB and offensive tackle with the first 4 picks, while holding off on drafting a WR until the mid rounds. Then Let's say Yancey and Clark take a leap next year and draft a WR in the second round in the 2019 draft. Profit.

    He's most likely not coming here anyways, but that would be a great scenario for the WR position.

    Didn't Godgers break records with Philbin and win his first MVP with Philbin and win a SB with Philbin and win a SB MVP with Philbin?

    A prove it deal would not be bad, but I get the feeling he overvalues himself

    Also given with what just happened with Bennett I worry about any distractions he could potentially cause as well. Will he throw a fit if and when Adams and Graham are getting more targets?

    2 4th round and 3 5th round picks, I think they can and should do what you said along with snagging a WR somewhere

    Isn’t pretty much every coach essentially a “cast off”

    Guys move all the time, especially when new head coaches are hired. They usually want to bring in their own guys regardless of how you do

    I could not give a single fuck on how Philbin or Pettine did as a HC. That isn’t their job now, and they’re better at their current roles. Pettine mentioned he probably never wants to be one again anyway, he said he’s likes being a “teacher” as opposed to a “principal” who oversees everything
