Brett Favre: Aaron Rodgers feels like the odd man out

Getty Images

Before the draft, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had been making periodic appearances on Twitter. Since Wednesday, April 22, Rodgers has disappeared.

Rodgers has had nothing to say, on social media or elsewhere, since the Packers traded up four spots to select quarterback Jordan Love last Thursday, since they made a pair of picks aimed at bolstering the running game on Friday, and since they emerged from Saturday with no receivers drafted.

But that hasn’t kept him from making his thoughts known, indirectly. Rodgers spoke to his Green Bay predecessor, Brett Favre, and Favre then made multiple radio appearances on Wednesday. His comments to Rich Eisen were noted here; Favre also did a regular spot on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

“Aaron and I have a great relationship, and we talked about it,” Favre told Bruce Murray and Brady Quinn. “Obviously, he’s a little disappointed.”

Favre remained careful not to share many details about their discussion, but it’s hard not to conclude that Favre’s opinions on the subject were shaped by his conversation with Rodgers. And from that conversation came a key theme: Disrespect.

“To me, the word ‘disrespect’ I think is perfect,” Favre said. “That’s the message that it sends to Aaron.”

Favre explained that the Packers didn’t take a can’t-miss prospect who slid into their laps, like Rodgers did in 2005. Instead, the Packers traded up to take a chance on an unproven player who will do nothing to help the Packers take the next step beyond the NFC Championship.

“Isn’t it about winning now?” Favre said. “That pick says, ‘No.'”

In his appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Favre also expressed surprise that the Packers didn’t follow the selection of Jordan Love by drafting a receiver, acknowledging “that would make [Rodgers] feel a little better about it.” So what’s the overall message from the Packers to Rodgers, as Favre sees it?

“Aaron, you’re on your own, buddy,” Favre said. “You and Davante Adams.”

Aaron’s on his own in a different way, as Favre sees it. Comparing the current situation to Favre’s final years in Green Bay, Favre said it’s easy for the player to conclude that the world has changed around him so much that there’s no longer a place for him in it.

“Aaron, do you ever look around and say, ‘I feel like the odd man out?'” Favre said. “And he said, ‘Yeah.'”

That pretty much says it all. Rodgers’ career currently has a two-year shelf life in Green Bay, due to the cap hit associated with trading him. It’s also possible, depending on how the 2020 season goes, that the Packers will arrange for a post-June 1 trade in 2021, allowing the cap hit to be spread over two years.

Until then, it will be awkward, to say the least. And it could get more awkward based upon the things said by and to Rodgers in the coming weeks and months.

  1. This is gonna be fun.

    Aaron and his ways have run one coach out.

    This new one is not playing the stats game he plays.

    Aaron only throws to NCAA open wrs. To save his stats. When Aaron was good he would make tight window throws that he has not made for years.

    Without the crazy help they got in calls they would have not won 13 games point blank.

    Playing outside up north it has been ungodly stupid to not have a short pass game and a run game.

    Brady rode short passes and a defense outdoors up north to how many rings?

  2. This is where the Vikings screwed up by extending Cousins. The Vikings could have been in play for Rodgers to stick it to the Packers, just like Favre.

  3. The only problem is Love isn’t a QB. That’s just one small detail, but other than that, everything’s fine. Hey, maybe Belichick is looking for an old washed up QB like Rodgers.

  4. “And I’m absolutely loving every minute of it” added Brett after the mic was turned off.

  5. gotta love Favre keeping it real not worrying about ruffling feathers just opening the window to the thoughts of a franchise QB. He just moved up a couple spots in my GOAT ranking

  6. Media trying to make a story where there simply isn’t one. They brought in a QB for the future. Rodgers will play 2-3 more seasons and then it will be time for someone else. Drafting a backup QB is smart….Sources within the team (And not media members or ex Packers with an axe to grind) say there is no story here ad Rodgers is fine with it. Just another example of a long offseason that needs to be filled with content, real or otherwise.

  7. First thing Aaron said to Farve: “Good morning, grandpa!”

    Well what comes around goes around. Watch your words or you will be eating them. Aaron you you want any ketchup with that?

  8. Qb is the leader on the field. How’s the players suppose to follow when the coach/organization is trying to undercut the qb?

  9. The funniest thing is watching Packer fans fall all over themselves trying to make it sound like everything is peachy in Titletown and this was exactly the move you want to make right now.

  10. Not sure what is more surprising: That Rodgers and Favre are friends now or that Rodgers would be cool with his friend doing the radio circuit talking about all this stuff.

  11. Really?

    Did the Vikings win the offseason again too Mike? How has this worked out for you the last 54 years of your life?

    Get over us little guy.👌

  12. Disrespect sums it up. in 2019 it was that the [para] “coaches were going to hand hold Rodgers”. Now this. Sure they need to get their future QB but if there was on communication about it then AR should look to leave. Call the PATS Aaron!

    Well, which Brady?

    No Ego Brady or Big Ego Brady?

    Because there’s 2 Bradys.

    2001-2006, 2014-2017ish (good game management, ball distribution, under Center more, no Binky Addiction seen, etc).

    2007-2012 Brady – This was “Hi I won 3 rings in 4 years, but my stats are not as good as Peyton’s stats” Brady, where he demanded toys. This is a fact per Paul Perillo. Brady was ticked off BB had to deal Branch in 2006. BB made amends, and Brady proceeded to crap down his leg with his preferred offensive style and the Shotgun/Spread base. Go look at any box score from 2007-2012 and look at the pass./run imbalance. It’s horrendous.

    I just looked at late Nov 2007 when Jim Johsnon and the Eagles set the blueprint on how to slow the Pats offense. NE’s D had 3 INTs. 3! NE barely won 31,28, but Brady threw 54 times with only TD.

    That’s a poor yield.

    Like I said, once BB drafted JimmyG after the experimental 2013 season with 3 rookie WRS at once, BB and Brady had to have had a conversation because by Week 5 vs Cincy in 2014, Brady was still kinda crappy running that offense. That’s why the “onto Cincinnati” thing has a lot more resonance than what some Pats fans even realize.

    That’s how good BB’s teams are built. Even when he has a QB performing underneath his personal ceiling, and the team is getting to title games in spite of it, what happened, is Brady Fanboys took the anti-BB media lead, and blamed BB.

    They brainwashed themselves via people like Chris Gasper, Shaugnessy, Felger and Mazz, Breer, Bedard, now Volin, etc.

    Mind you, this on the heels of Brady playing like HOT GARBAGE in the 2007 and 2011 AFC title games. No one said anything. I was banned from like 3 Pats boards for even coming with facts.

    Ego is a thing and I gotta tell ya, GB fans are in for a serious challenge with Aaron’s ego if what this stuff Favre says, is true.

    Big time.

    BB just rid themselves of their problem and have a solution in place.

    It was a thing…It was. BB had to manage a very successful QB and his ego, and in the end, it was just too much work.

  14. enough all ready . the rookie not ready to play . AR is being paid plenty to play . in 2 yrs it might be a story. right now its not.

  15. Oh, was Captain Cupcake’s feelings hurt? Wow! This guy is exposing himself to being just a child in a man’s football jersey. He isn’t great. He’s just self-important.

  16. Aaron could single handedly destroy our franchise if he chooses to sabotage this. And he seems to be the guy who do something like that. I mean, he did it to his real family so doing it to us will be nothing.

  17. Aaron Rodgers is a great talent at QB for about 7 ir 8 years nobody could sling the ball like him and throw with such accurate passes on the move.

    Are has taken away some of the mobility and arm talent. One thing he lacks above that all is leadership. Even talking through Farve is pasive aggresive. The stuff in the media with his last coach.

  18. Hey Brent. We liked you better when you were retired and quiet. Obviously you’re still attention starved , coloring your hair orange and doing all of these interviews about how Aaron feels. He’s a big boy. He doesn’t need you to speak for him. If he’s got something to say he will.

  19. This is where the Vikings screwed up by extending Cousins. The Vikings could have been in play for Rodgers to stick it to the Packers, just like Favre.
    ——————————————————–
    No, the Vikings are in great shape with Kirk Cousins, who has improved every year as a pro, and is five years younger than Rodgers.

    GB Trades Rodgers To Jax for a future 1st and 3rd.
    GB then signs Dalton

    Who says no?

    He has a 51 million dead cap hit you ain’t trading him

  21. That guy has one big mouth. That is why he is not held in high esteem by people who value character in Green Bay.

    As a Vikings fan…Pass. I don’t want Rodgers. I hate his attitude and I don’t think he would win a ring here either. He is pass his prime. Favre couldn’t do it, so I don’t think Rodgers can. He can’t do it with the Packers who are pretty much as talented as the Vikings right now anyways. The Vikings and Packers both have decent defenses, good running back’s, and with Stefon Diggs gone, I think the Packers are better at Receiver. Adams>Thielan.

    *************************
    No Thanks. Rodgers is not Favre from a team-mate/attitude perspective.

  24. OK Brent. Go away. You are no longer relevant and the only thumbs up you get are from Vikings fans.

  25. It’s funny and kind of odd that the story Favre relates sounds exactly how Favre felt when Rodgers was drafted.

    If I didn’t know better I would say that Favre is projecting his feelings onto Rodgers because he still feels “disrespected” like he thinks is the “perfect” word.

    And the pick of Love obviously isn’t about winning now. It’s about trying to win over the long term and give the fans of the team a decade of competitive football. I’m glad Farve isn’t the GM. He’d be just like Dan Devine and make the famous Polka trade for John Hadl where the Packers gave up a one, and a two, and a one, two, three and they were the dregs of the league for 10 years after that fiasco.

    But they were trying to win now!

  26. Cant wait to see Packers go back to winning 3-6 games a year and never see their fat fans on tv again!

  27. PFT and other NFL media are loving Green Bay’s pick of Love. The only really surprising element to the draft.

    As a lifelong Packer fan who saw Bart Starr live once when his arm was shot, I have enjoyed #4 and #12 behind center for nearly a generation. However, they both have egos that could prevent them from fitting in the same room together. Favre loves stirring this up. Rodgers appreciates Favre’s mouth doing his whining about the pick.

    Gutekunst may be wrong about Love, but it is clear that last year’s investment was to upgrade the defense–somewhat successful outside of San Francisco games–and this year is about becoming a running them. The Packers aren’t being mysterious. They want less in-game burden on an aging quarterback to pull off miracle throws. They want to control the clock, run the ball, and have some play action opportunities for Rodgers to pick his spots–which also keeps the defense better rested and the ball out of the opponent’s hands. And if/when Rodgers gets injured, they want to develop a backup who can win games. Nothing new about any of that in pro football.

    Rodgers chose to sign an extension to five years, and I recall it put something like $67 million in his pocket in 2019 in bonus and salary. He has no right to whine. Neither did Favre when he talked about retirement for five years before the Packers traded him. If Rodgers plays well, it’s his job for 3 more years. While I appreciate #4 and #12 on the field, I miss Bart Starr off the field. I’m confident his attitude would have been, “They’ve paid me really well; I need to do my job to keep it.”

  28. Check out the big brain on Brett! I’m sure this isn’t just Favre grinding his own axe right? Right?

  29. Wreckdeutschland, the Vikings are NOT in great shape with Cousins. They are an 8-8 team. I’m not happy with that.

    ajzinnecker, I hate Rodgers personality. But he would have a huge chip on his shoulder to stick it to the packers.

  30. I love Brett – but once someone gets him talking it’s like him thinking every receiver is open. An ironman like him shouldn’t fall back on the weak “lack of respect” argument – that’s for lesser guys, and I doubt his father Irv would have listened to that.

  31. Not sure what looks worse, Rodgers’ silence or Favre’s willingness to supposedly spill the beans about this. Not good news for a team most thought were primed for a Super Bowl run.

  32. Funny how the guy that always puts himself ahead of the team feels disrespected when the team puts itself ahead of him.

  33. I am a Packers fan and have been tired of his act for awhile. He worries too much about his stats than winning. He thinks he is bigger than the Packers.

  34. Disrespect? He will have been paid $230M by GB after this season (and players get paid this season whether they play or not). Cry me a river.

    And a $66M bonus paid a couple of seasons ago when they extended him. They didn’t have to extend him at that point. That is saying “thank you” and a sign of respect.

    If he wants to tank when he is back on the field, that reflects on him, not the Packers.

  35. What a load of BS. This is Favre trying to be relevant again. And who gives a rip how Rodgers’ feels? He got a contract to be the highest paid player in the league at the time. Now there’s either a competent backup or a possible heir apparent waiting in the wings. As he said in the off season, he’s not worried about a rookie unseating him. If he buys into LaFleur’s offense, he can extend his career the way Denver did for Elway with a strong running game. If he doesn’t, Love is waiting in the wings with his buy-in. It’s all up to Aaron.

  36. Favre doesn’t play football anymore. He should just keep to himself. That said, what do him and Rodgers want the Packers to do? Wait until Rodgers says he doesn’t want to play anymore, then draft a quarterback? Rodgers can play out his contract if he wants, then he can go do like Favre. Embarrass himself while playing 3 years too long.

  37. When did Favre become the official spokesman for Rodgers? Let him speak for himself. Enough already, I get the comparisons to the end of Farve’s career in Green Bay and he has already given his thoughts and opinion. He doesn’t know what Rodgers is thinking, different time, different people involved.

  38. Favre is such a drama queen. He will say anything to get this type of attention.We all went through this when Aaron was drafted.It turned out great and hopefully Love will be a great addition for Green Bay. Rogers has been a great QB. There are teams like the Vikings that have been looking for a QB for as long as Rogers has been in green bay and they still don’t have a good QB. Say what you want about Rogers he is going to the hall of fame period!!!

  39. i’ll believe farve who actually spoke with Rodgers over cheese eaters who (used to) worship Rodgers and who think they are friends with the players 😵

  40. “Ron Jull says:
    April 30, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    Aaron Rodgers : over rated, over hyped, over paid.”

    Yeah he’s paid the top 3 in the league, but that will change very soon when Dak agrees to a deal, to be followed by others. He has the best career passer rating ever at 102.4; only Wilson is over 100. And of the top 5 in career rating, only Brady has more titles. He’s got MVPs, he’s got a Super Bowl ring; he’s carried the team multiple seasons when the squad really wasn’t a playoff calibre but he will them there. He’s being challenged by Mahomes, but even Brady agrees Rodgers can do things on a football field Brady cannot do.

    Say what you want, but he is rated high in sheer numbers, produces highly and is paid highly. It makes sense to me. Maybe watch some highlights, if you do is read articles critical of Rodgers. Watch him actually play.

  41. I have no idea how Rodgers feels, but this whole “they needed to take a receiver to help Rodgers now” is a load of crap.
    The overwhelming majority of receivers drafted need two years or more to develop.
    Davante Adams didn’t become a big time threat until his fourth year.
    The guys who are really being disrespected in all this are Allen Lazard, EQ, and Jace Sternberger.
    Also, if Rodgers was a “can’t miss” guy, he wouldn’t have slid to 17. He was viewed as a Jeff Tedford product, and that was poison. Teams thought his film was a mirage like Kyle Boller’s. Green Bay took a risk, and it payed off.
    Love might or might not, but when you look at the history, successive franchise QB’s
    and how that has made the Packers relevant since 1992, it was a risk worth taking.

  42. Ron Wolf traded for Favre and there was great cacophony from the West. “He’s a nobody!” said they.

    Favre then won a Super Bowl.

    During Favre’s tenure, Wolf drafted several QBs and there was even more noise, except the word of the day became “Schism!”

    Many of those guys became very capable backups and were traded for picks when they were due for a second contract. No drama whatsoever… except to the West. Aaron Brooks was a very capable starter for the Saints for quite a few years. Hasselbeck went to a Super Bowl. Mark Brunell won a Super Bowl and Doug Pederson won one as a Head Coach.

    Ted Thompson drafted Rodgers and from the West came even more talk of “Schism!”
    Rodgers then went on to win a Super Bowl.

    Now Brian Gutekunst drafts Love and of course the noise is at a fever pitch, led by media types with an ax to grind (McGinn et al) and various click-bait artists who shall remain nameless.

    This new kid could get traded in a couple years. Rodgers could (Jebus forbid) get injured or he could decide to retire at or near the end of this contract. Or maybe the kid even beats him out in two or three years. Then we can hear all about how the Packers got lucky three times in a row.

  43. I mean, I dont get it either. They made it to the NFC Championship game with some holes in the roster. Decided not to fill holes, but rather make selections like you are building from the ground up.

  44. Rodgers needs to be quiet and play ball. He doesn’t have enough SB rings to be this much of a Diva. Ever since he kicked out his “roommate/assistant” and switched sides he’s been a diva. Dude is closeted and I can’t stand anything about his personality

  45. Of all people for Rodgers to confide in and then to turn and talk about this publicly, it’s Lord Favre? If that isn’t the irony of all ironies.

    Based on these comments, there does seem to be a little fire underlying all this smoke. Should be an interesting two years till the Rodgers’ cap hit makes any movement possible.

  46. QBs get drafted young….get their chops…get to be great for 5 or 6 years…start to slow down…teams draft the next heir apparent ….REPEAT CYCLE. Its just Rodgers turn.

  47. Brett is gleefully out here stirring the pot daily, lol. However, Rodgers should have seen this coming. I said it when they made the coaching hire and the GM and CEO went on record and basically, in LeBron James’ speak, said he needs to fit in or fit out.

  48. Rodgers should retire. That would result in the Packers being about $30MM over the cap, being forced to cut high salaried players immediately, throwing Love into the fire, and undoubtedly the firing of both Matt LaFleur and Brian Gutekunst, and blowing up the organization generally.

  49. If you want to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but you have only bread and peanut butter, what do you buy at the store? More peanut butter? If you want to make spaghetti and meatballs, but you have only spaghetti and marinara sauce, what do you buy at the store? More spaghetti?

    The Packers draft is positively ridiculous and nonsensical.

  50. With the virus running rampant I’ve had the chance to watch a lot of old Green Bay games on youtube. I noticed a dramatic difference in the way Rodgers throws the ball now. Well, not the way he throws the ball but how long he holds it and how much he throws it away. Years ago his throws were quick and crisp. Not so much anymore. I’ve always thought he’d rather take a sack on third down and punt than risk throwing the ball anywhere close to a defender but the last couple years he holds the ball and holds the ball waiting for somebody to get 2 plus yards of separation. He doesn’t throw guys open, he throws it to where they are most of the time

  51. I knew it wouldn’t last forever but the short-term lack of obsessive attention sure was nice. Let’s see if we can start a new streak. I’m saying right here and right now that he absolutely cannot live without my attention. Not will not. Can not. That’s the way deep-rooted obsession works.

    Now every day he doesn’t clamor for my attention, I will be “wrong.” Gleefully and happily wrong. And no matter how hard he tries, he can’t make me love him.

  52. And if Wes Welker shuts his trap about Rex’s feet, Aaron doesn’t even have the one ring…

    =============================
    If Cousins’ improvement is measured in 5 year increments, he’s gonna be in his 70’s before he gets as good as Aaron Rodgers.

  54. Funny how the Diva who shunned the new kid feels bad for the new kid now that he’s the Diva.
    Favre needs to shut up, he’s exposing his own sore-butt (STILL) attitude, not Rodgers.

  55. Man up, AR.

    You’re getting paid $30 million/year. Quit pouting.

    Maybe it’s time for you to understand how the rookie receivers felt a couple years ago when all you could do was roll your eyes after they made a mistake.

    That, too, was disrespect.

  56. I wonder how many Super Bowls other franchises would have had with having Favre & Rodgers as their QBs over the years.

  57. Brett Favre is out telling anyone who will listen that, because the Pack drafted a QB in the 1st round, Rodgers is hurt, feels like an odd man out, he has been disrespected…
    Tell you what, Ol’ Buddy…
    – Since it sounds like you’re projecting your Diva on to Rodgers’ Diva, and you’re still butt hurt about 2008,
    – Since you both are/were paid way too much,
    – Since every player should have to EARN his position fall or even every game, and if he’s that good he shouldn’t stress competition,
    – Since, if Rodgers is really home crying, he is free to grow up and work hard to keep/earn his position (or just sit home and count his last bonus) and finally,
    – Since Rodgers isn’t saying anything and you represent neither Aaron or the Packers, then…
    Maybe you should go ride your tractor, and stop stirrin’ up strife where it may not exist. We know ’08 was hard, but… hush.

  58. Whatever. It’s just a game. Rodgers hasn’t said one-single-word, as usual, and “others” are doing his thinking and feeling for him, as usual.

  59. If Jorden Love is ready in 2021, Rodgers could be traded then rather than 2022. Green Bay would save 4.8 MM$ against the cap and the acquiring team would only have to pay Rodgers 22.0 MM$, 22.5 MM$, and 22.5 MM$ for 2021 thru 2023. Green Bay would have a dead money charge of 31.6 MM$ but still save 4.8 MM$ against his 36.4 MM$ cap charge

  60. A smart franchise waits until a player doesn’t have $51.5M in dead money before they try to run him out of town.

    Wreckdeutschland, the Vikings are NOT in great shape with Cousins. They are an 8-8 team. I’m not happy with that.
    __________

    Well, they’re 18-12-1 with Cousins so far so I don’t see how they’re an 8-8 team. And I wouldn’t care if they were an 0-16 team, I wouldn’t want Rodgers playing for them. He’s probably the least likeable player in the NFL and a has-been.

  62. Welcome to Tampa Aaron! 2022 isn’t that far away. We promise to replace the real grass turf to something of your liking since you complained that it hurt your knee. See you then. Ciao!

  63. Favre does not know how Rodgers feels. He is only projecting his own feeling onto his old rival.

  64. Some of you actually thought Rodgers would handle this like a professional!
    Wow. He’s doii in nfc exactly what he always does when people don’t kiss up to him.

  65. odd man out making 30 million this year. I’ll trade places with him. As long as he plays at a high level he’s going nowhere…

    ———————————————

    One thing I’ve learned in my years hating the Packers and their entitled belligerent fans because I know a lot of them personally is that they never, ever would say “whatever, it’s just a game.”

  67. As a fan we’ve been lucky to have 2 HOF qbs back to back. It’s lame we got only 2 rings out of them. I blame the packers brass for not fielding a decent team around both specifically a defense. But it would be nice to for them build a team or defense instead of throwing it on all one guy. The fans and the packers brass have created this vacuum where it’s like it’s 2005 all over again. Would rather have a solid team with a game manager at qb than a one man show.

    I wonder why Favre is so interested in talking about this?

    —————————————————————————————

    Because he still is angry toward Rodgers for taking his job and becoming a better QB than he was.

  69. Favre has never gotten over being replaced by Rodgers even though it was 90% Favre’s fault for retiring, not retiring, retiring, not retiring. Pretty crappy for him to spill his guts on Rodgers thoughts if they indeed did talk. Regardless, you can be sure his buddy buddy approach with Rodgers is more like a stab in the back one last time.

  70. Packer fans – Don’t hate the messenger!! Farve is doing exactly what Rodgers wanted him to do. Surely you don’t believe all these national interviews with Farve are a coincidence?

  71. There will be NO Rodgers Trade for at least the next 2 seasons. He wanted the huge signing bonus and he got it. Now it handcuffs him to GB. The dead cap hit would be devastating to the roster. He’s goin’ nowhere anytime soon.

  72. If I’m Rodgers and if what Farve says is true, I demand a trade a.s.a.p.. The clock is ticking on Rodgers’ career and if he wants to make it back to the Big Dance, then he has to reach out to Belichick. This gives Rodgers a chance to get back to the SB and it gives Belichick a year or two to draft or trade for a new QB. If not New England, then the Broncos or Bears. The relationship between Rodgers and LaFleur is probably ruined and will no longer work. Rodgers will ‘check out’ mentally if he has to stay and that helps no one. Sad, but honestly, I don’t feel bad for Aaron. He is kind of “prissy” and he helped bring this on. Just one fan’s take…for what its worth … which isn’t much.

  73. He feels like the odd man out because he probably wants out. Its Green Bay for heavens sake. Would you want to spend your winters there? He probably beginning to hate those annoying face thermals, and not having any feeling in his hands by the second half of games.

  74. I don’t really feel bad for Aaron Rodgers, the guy has been a self absorbed jerk for years now who’s extremely selfish and all about Aaron, that’s it. Rodgers has already ran one coach off who drafted him and now he is doing it with yet another head coach, all the while playing like crap on Sunday’s as he has clearly declined a bit & taken a few steps back, gone is his elusiveness and escapability as he can no longer escape defenders under pressure and has lost a bit off of his fastball. Rodgers is more talent dependent now than he has ever been, and the Packers are letting him know hey dude, you’re not irreplacable. Maybe it would be better for both parties if they did go their own ways in a year or so.

    Wreckdeutschland, the Vikings are NOT in great shape with Cousins. They are an 8-8 team. I’m not happy with that.

    Well, they’re 18-12-1 with Cousins so far so I don’t see how they’re an 8-8 team.
    —————————————
    8-7-1 in 2018
    11-7 in 2019 (10-6, 1-1)
    19-14-1 with Cousins.
    Cousins won’t take the Vikings to a Super Bowl. Ever. With Rodgers it’s possible, even though I don’t like his attitude.

    Cousins lifetime record is 44-42-2.
    While 19-13-1 as the Vikings starter is above .500, I don’t take much stock in Cousin’s ability to win consistently. His history suggests he is a .500 quarterback.

  77. If Viking fans can just get Rodgers to quit the Packers, Zimmer might finally have a chance to get his first ever career win against LaFluer’s Packers.

    It’s going to be really humiliating if the Vikings get swept again this year.

  78. Too bad. He’s been living off his only Super Bowl for the past decade. Can’t win on the road consistently in the playoffs.

    This is where the Vikings screwed up by extending Cousins. The Vikings could have been in play for Rodgers to stick it to the Packers, just like Favre.

    Really? Better take a look at those stats from last year. Cousins numbers were comparable Frankenrodgers. The only category Cousins didn’t lead in was yardage and Frankenrodgers had fewer INTs. Cousins for most of the season keep pace with Aaron on TD passes but lead in QBR and Completion Percentage. He even sat the last week against Bears in a meaningless game.

    Packers rubes are trying to play spin doctor on whole drafting Love thing, it sent a clear and concise message to Rodgers. If you cannot see that and admit he cannot win on the West coast since what 2016, blown how many NFC title games. He is living off the success of one Super Bowl win 9 years ago and a few lucky Hail Marys here and there.

    So in closing no the Vikings didn’t miss out because Cousins had his best year as a Pro last year and will still be playing for the Vikings after this year while Frankenrodgers will either be in New Endland or somewhere else. L-WAR is coming be prepared………

  81. Since Jerry Jones will probably roll over and pay Dak the farm, he might as well go all in and trade Dak and some pics for Aaron Rodgers. After the Gbay move, Rogers will never be happy there and push his way out. JJ might as well go all in and get him now.

  82. A familiar voice has weighed in with a interesting opinion.

    Greg Jennings: “I don’t think there is any issue here at all. Aaron Rodgers will end his career in Green Bay.”

    I just can’t wait to get to late July and training camp. I believe all NFL camps will open on time as scheduled. They may not have open practices, but I hope they do because I am very much looking forward to watching Jordan Love develop. Some have forgotton that Tim Boyle will also be fighting for a job as well. Be interesting to see if Gute keeps 2 or 3 QB’s on the roster. Aaron is always a great watch at camp, and that won’t change this summer, but I will enjoy watching the new best QB room in the NFL as a whole.

    Is it late July yet?

    Let’s do this!
