Is Aaron Rodgers treated like a super star should be? Does he deserve more say in how the Packers go about their business? These are some of the questions many people ask each other because every year fans always wonder how the heck the Packers did not win another Super Bowl. With recent news that has surfaced that Rodgers is “frustrated” with the Packers over personal decisions has created a stir in the NFL. This report has led Rodgers to put out a tweet that reads, “fakenewstuesday, so are these reports false? Well we at least know how Rodgers feels.
Rodgers though has spoken about his opinion on seeing guys like Jordy Nelson, John Kuhn, James Jones, Julius Peppers all getting released by the team and he is not happy about it. The Packers also gave the boot to quarterback coach, Alex Van Pelt and he did not know about it until after the move as made. The same goes with longtime friend and go to target, Jordy Nelson. Rodgers spoke about the recent situation and said that he is being paid to play quarterback and that is all he is worried about and to “trust the process”.
I think the most important part in this situation is do franchise players especially quarterbacks, deserve more say in personal decisions? This is a topic that is extremely controversial because obviously Rodgers doesn’t want to see teammates like Nelson leave, but if he wants them to stay, do they deserve more money because Rodgers wants them on the team? Do players like Rodgers deserve more money if they want to make personal calls as well? It is a very tough situation, but there has to be reasons why the Packers haven’t won a Super Bowl in over a decade with Aaron at the helm. Rodgers obviously knows the game of football, but do you think if he was making some calls or helping out the front office, would it make a difference?
