He has run this team for awhile now. He got Mike McCarthy fired, he gets whoever he wants hired and also gets his players signed. So for anyone to say he doesn't run this team is blind as a bat or is just so far up Rodgers ass they can't see anything. As far as his future thats easy to guess, you just have to follow one person to know what he will do and that is the GOAT Tom Brady. If Brady retires after this year Rodgers will stay playing, if Brady comes back Rodgers will retire, simple as that. Why do I say that ? It's fairly simple and the answer is Rodger's ego. He will not want to play 2nd fiddle to Brady going into the HOF so he can't retire in the same year. Why do you think he was talking retirement this year? Brady retired if you remember so of course Rodgers wanted the huge contract even though it wasn't about the money. Plus he could have been very easily 2nd fiddle to Big Ben in canton with the way the Steeler fans show up there for there players. So basically just follow Brady and see what he does and you will get your answer on Rodgers and I am willing to bet the house Rodgers won't retire the same year as Brady, the ego won't allow it.
