Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says that he’ll “figure things out in a couple weeks.” While that’s a refreshing turn from buzzwords like “beautiful mystery” and non-answers like “we’ll see,” the timeline makes little sense.

In a couple of weeks, he’s due to report for training camp. So will he figure things out the day before the start of a five-month commitment? How will he not know — how does he not already know — what he plans to do? He’s had six months to “figure things out” about his future playing career. At this point, he shouldn’t need two more weeks.


There’s a chance, of course, that he figured things out long ago, and that Sunday’s comment represents the latest step in the effort to drag out the story. Which continues to place pressure on the Green Bay front office. Which continues to keep the fans caught in the crossfire.

If you see the video of Rodgers’ remarks, it’s obvious that he enjoys this game. That further suggests he knows exactly what he’s going to do. So why can’t he, why won’t he, just let his plans be known? The fact that he won’t reinforces the notion that his plan is more like a strategy aimed at ultimately getting what he wants: a one-way ticket out of Green Bay.

Don’t be surprised if he makes no broad announcement before July 27, the reporting date for camp. Don’t be surprised if he just doesn’t show up for camp, one day after another until he does (or doesn’t). The nonchalance with which he skipped mandatory minicamp could happen again with training camp. He just won’t show up, with no statement or fanfare or anything.

At one point, I assumed he’d show up for camp and chastise those of us who made it a big deal. I now wonder whether he’ll just continue to act like none of this is a big deal, that he’ll be there when he’s there and if he’s not there, he’s not there. He’s far more calculating than that, and it feels like he’s intentionally coming off as someone who has no intentions whatsoever, and that he has no intention to develop any.

Whatever happens next, Packers shareholders gather in two weeks. The next day, the players report. The Rodgers story will last at least until then, and probably longer. Probably a lot longer. Probably in part because, deep down, he likes it that way.

I know, I know, I am going to regret yet another Aaron Rodgers topic. I saw the opening paragraphs and I mean if you can't understand what is going on, you're not wanting to see it. The highlighted snippet tells us everything. One of the people Rodgers has opening admitted his disdain for acknowledges Rodgers already knows what is going to happen. Yet, it won't stop that website from procuring story after story after storing trying to mine us for clicks and attention.

THE CYCLE NEVER FREAKING ENDS! Even the douche bags KNOW what they are doing, tell US what they are doing and yet it still manipulates people into slandering ones character.

This is an example of why I think it would have been good for Aaron Rodgers to say something publicly to squash it, at least in the public eye. When it starts trickling to your teammates having to answer for your absence, you're being a douche. I know the media will twist everything around, but at least when players are asked, they can refer to his public comments and say next question.

I agree. He knows that his teammates are constantly asked about him, which puts them in a difficult situation.
He should just come out and say what he intends to do. That would shut up all the media whores.

It won't shut the media up at all. It will provide his teammates an easy out from speaking on it though. They just say "he came out and said everything is fine, so that's where I'm at, next question". I suppose that could be said now too though. I dunno. If the Packers weren't so popular, this stuff wouldn't be even on the radar. Victims of our own awesome.


Edit, I think the media is getting exhausted from this too, lol.

I went back and read Tyler Dunne's "smear piece" on Rodgers, Mike McCarthy, Ted Thompson and the Packers. "What happened in Green Bay?" I'm not linking it, and I know many dismissed it out of hand, but imo, there is probably a lot of truth in that article.

I don’t know what Dunne said, so I don’t know what to make of it.
Hopefully in the next week or so we will know the results of this stupid soap opera.
I doubt we will ever know the truth of what the REAL problem was, other then “it’s about the people”, which still doesn’t say anything. Just “Californy” speak for “I have a bug up my @$$”.

How is he “not respected?”
Because the FO is looking to the future, so when Rodgers can no longer play at a high level, which most likely won’t be that far in the future, that the TEAM is prepared to still be able to compete?
They offered him a boatload if money. Said to EVERYONE that Rodgers is still the guy?

Is it that they didn’t let him be the GM? Which of course isn’t what he’s paid to be.
Why did it take him having a bug up his butt last season to get him to play up to his potential?
I don’t get it.
I’m just frustrated with the whole thing.
I just don’t know how it can ever be healed. Rodgers is too stubborn. He can’t even get along with his own family.
Some day he will regret that.
Most likely, by then it will be too late.
Sadly.

I agree what what was said because I get the impression Aaron Rodgers feels he's earned a seat at the table when decisions are made. Not to MAKE the decisions, but to be APART of them. I've heard a few people (even some who Rodgers openly says he likes in the media) saying enough is enough, suit up and play. The problem here is Rodgers feels disrespected (I'm speculating) and he's like an elephant, he doesn't forget and I think he's petty too. This is why I agree with what was said in the clip as to what the problem is. I'm not saying I agree with it, I'm saying I agree that it's probably the root of issue.

It should also be noted that Aaron has went out of his way to not talk about this and I believe that is because he didn't want it public. He wanted it resolved behind the scenes. I'm willing to bet his agent or someone close to the Packers had loose lips and that is also something that doesn't sit well with Aaron. We all know he's a very private individual.

I believe he's been using the media to constantly slam the team, because didn't get his way.

All that may be true, but he did nothing to fix it. He may not be de-valued as a qb, but this is no leader in my mind, and I no longer want him as the national face of the Pack. He is embarrassing, and even if he comes back and leads us to a super bowl victory, he cheapened it as a fan with this narcissistic bullshit. Many say he didn't say anything, media hyped it, etc. He did say a ton by letting this go on, and as a big a homer I am, and a foolish Wisconsin sod buster to boot,, I am not buying his California razzle dazzle bullshit. He can f'ing sit, and I do not want to reward anyone with a trade, especially him.. If Jordan Love sucks, I'll bitch about him, but I will definitely root for the young man, just like I (still, incredibly) root for Kevin King...hard. BTW, If I ever find a person that sent MVS those death threats...well, I better shut up now...

So.....Rodgers wants a seat at the table......if he didn’t get his way while sitting at the table, you think he wouldn’t be just as petty and not throw more tantrums?
I think we all know THAT answer.
In my view, he’s acting like a spoiled child. “I’m gonna hold my breath until I get my way!!!”
And as was already stated, the damage has already been done. If by some chance he does play here this year, I wouldn’t doubt if fans would boo him. And if he messes up on the field, he will be BOOOO’D!
He’s not going to come out looking like an innocent guy that was treated badly.
JMO of course.

Aaron Rodgers is the greatest detective of all time. After all, it was he who somehow uncovered the Packers FO's sorted plan to replace him after 2021 even after the painful efforts to hide this fact by giving Love little to no snaps with the 1st team or never suiting up for a single game. Yet through Rodgers watchful eye he saw just how the team was prepping for a Love takeover.
My tweet to Rodgers:
"The Bucks superstar player and leader of the team played his best game of the year and made sure the team got the W at home. Go to Greece and get under a waterfall. You earned the break!
Appropriate I think considering Rodgers appears to enjoy throwing shit in peoples faces from time to time.
How fragile life is. Rodgers takes advantage of the three gifts Brady gives him and the Packers blow the Buc's out Brady becomes the "once was" superstar with one long skinny leg out of the NFL. If facts be known when the Pack pressured Brady he fell apart like a 43 year old tree house.
Oh well, not that it was that hard to see coming. Every time a game wasn't going well Rodgers acted like a whiney baby that wasn't allowed to stay up an extra hour. Hands on his hips, mumbling whatever, looking at the sidelines shaking his head like it's all their fault.
Still don't know what the bug up his ass is all about but supposed to accept that this is just all part of the beautiful mystery. Funny, I haven't found one damn beautiful thing about it.
