Mark Murphy’s latest column says nothing about Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers Introduce Matt LaFleur - Press Conference

Last month, Packers CEO Mark Murphy’s online Q&A created a firestorm when he replied to a question that didn’t even mention quarterback Aaron Rodgers by saying that the situation with Rodgers “has divided our fan base.”

This month, Murphy’s column makes no mention of the biggest issue still engulfing the franchise.

There’s nothing. No question about Rodgers (surely, Murphy got some) and no answer that takes a hard turn toward the guy Murphy later called a “complicated fella.”

The silence this month is nearly as conspicuous as the gratuitous mention from last month. It suggests a realization by Murphy that he made a mistake in his June column, especially in light of the sharp criticism he received after what he wrote and what he later said.

Murphy can’t stay silent on the matter for much longer. The team’s annual shareholder meeting happens on July 26. He’ll have to come up with something to say on an issue that definitely is complicated, fella.

  1. Maybe he learned a lesson about what a good leadership is? Yet there is a difference between being a good leader and leadership.

  2. Just the fact that he will be under pressure to explain to shareholders about one player on a team shows how important Rodgers is and how the front office screwed it up. There will likely be a front office cleaning within two years up there.

  3. I’ll be at the shareholders meeting. I’m hoping that Murphy announces two items: (1) Rodgers either plays for GB this year or he plays for no one, and (2) that July 26th will be his last shareholder meeting

  4. I suspect Rodgers, Inc., and the Packers have mutually agreed to keep a lid on all speculative sound-bites, to the best of everyone’s ability. When Rodgers fully understands a player is not more important than the team, this thing can move forward. If he doesn’t, many thousands of us are ready for Jordan Love. Either way, it’s all good.

  5. Murphy inserts his foot in his mouth every time he talks about Rodgers. The less he says, the better.

  6. Looks like we’re gonna get to see if Jordan Love has more luck than Favre or Rodgers in winning titles during his career now with the good talent they have around him.

  7. There isnt anything to say. We have Love and Rodgers at that position. One will be playing. And we are more than happy with those 2 options as a fan!

    Fleecing the fanbase with fake stock should be illegal.
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Why would you care?

  9. As soon as they show Rodgers some more guaranteed money and/or years, he will love GB again. This is always about the money. Always.

  10. There is not a player named Aaron Rodgers that is currently associated with the Packers.

  11. Has Rodgers beauty beginning to fail I “Prima Donna” beauty fade so soon.

    ——

    So should fleecing the fans by pretending to compete for a championship every season

  13. No voluntary contributions to the team. The politicians should fleece the taxpayers like they do in MN.

  14. My favorite part of this saga is the Packer fans trying to convince themselves that this is no big deal. You guys have no idea what’s coming for this franchise.

    Great idea , if you don’t talk about it then it’s like it never happened , lol . Here’s hoping all you Packers fans get your wish and Love is your QB . The results will prove that Rodgers had more to do with Green Bays success then many Packers fans are willing to admit .

  16. Love all the shareholders that think they can make any difference in any team decisions.

  17. There isnt anything to say. We have Love and Rodgers at that position. One will be playing. And we are more than happy with those 2 options as a fan!

    This Packer fan isn’t happy with Love as our starting QB. Very unproven. Don’t try to speak for all Packer fans.

  18. What are the odds that GB with Love is still the best team in the division?

    And you do? Packer fans have heard this same wishful-thinking opinion on an annual basis for over three decades. You don’t know squat.

  20. All of these Packer “shareholders” should get together and buy out the team. 🤣

  21. It’s hilarious how much this stock thing bothers people. We all know they would buy the commemorative stock certificates if their team were in a position to offer them.

    Because even if other teams did sell commemorative stock certificates, they wouldn’t have a phony “shareholders” meeting.

  23. You Packers fans saying “bring on Love” are just kidding us, right? Because no one could actually be foolish enough to want to replace Aaron Rodgers with Love, right?

    Right?

    The only thing the Vikings have to sell to the fan base are the most Super Bowl runner up trophies in history and ticket stubs from the infamous Love Boat Cruise.

    Oh I know a few things.

    I know that Aaron Rodgers will never play another down for the Packers and I know that the NFL has evolved into a pass first, QB-driven league.

    It’s a simple formula, especially when you’re starting a 3rd rounder that was drafted in the 1st.

  26. I just don’t understand Rodgers; He’s nearing the end of his career, so of course GB is looking for their next QB. GB is not obligated to inform Rodgers, indeed they may have been scared of his reaction pre-draft that would jeopardize their pick.

    Prima-donna got his feelings hurt so he’s gonna take his ball and go home, so there.
