Rodgers is a good quarterback. All he has to do now is get the ball out after taking a MAX of 5 steps.

Once he does that efficiently, there will be nobody worried.

He's playing with a separated shoulder for damn's sake.


C'mon, let's be real. It's a strain/sprain shoulder.

I didn't see him grimace in pain at all during the live game or when making the highlight video. So, that is good. I bet he practices Weds.

Is "Roddy" on the board???
LOLOLOL!!!
Thats just a bunch of crap.........thats the way i see it.
Who would even say that, even if they felt that way? When you are supposed to back the guys at the top, unless they are complete idiots like Matt Millen. Ted Thompson is NOT Millen. And Rodgers is doing the best ANYONE could do with what he's had to work with.

I agree that Rodgers hasn't been the problem. I'm going to guess this stems more from the PR side of not taking Favre back when the opportunity presented itself, and now Favre is playing well in NY proving he clearly wasn't done. In that regard, some on the board could see Rodgers as Ted's man and want him gone just to spite Ted.

If this is true then these board of directors need to look at what's happened in Oakland. When non-football people get involved with football making decisions it can cripple a franchise for decades.

This board of directors is BS, Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy have made their decision, firing them and getting rid of a franchise QB won't bring Brett back. People just need to get over this, including people who are supposed to be worring about everything but the decisions made on the field.

When you lose a couple games... the slugs crawl back out from underneath the rocks.. someone is digging up a stir.. remember where PF Weekly's home is.. Chitown.. what better way to cause issues.. find someone that will complain..

This same board backed Ted's play this offseason.. I have a hard time believing that endorsement is crumbling after 5 games.. or 6 if this was released this afternoon..

In regards to all parties, I think the trade worked.. Brett, Aaron, Chad and their respective teams.

I had no idea we had that many people on the board, and with that many people I'd be shocked if the board was unanimous in supporting Thompson's decision. I'd be willing to wager some portion of them conditionally backed it if GB took the next step this year but made it clear that if they regressed someone's ass would be on the line. The bottom line is this team just missed the Super Bowl last year. We had the opportunity to bring back our franchise QB and didn't. That gamble better pay off this year, not five years down the road, or there are going to be some people on the board wanting answers whether that's right or wrong. That's how business works. Bosses don't give a damn about your five year plan when there are glaring problems right now.

Don't disagree there Wiskey, that there is a board member or few that are stewed because of the direction.. it was a huge gamble for this franchise. No doubt.. but if you took a vote today, I would have a hard time believing that it would be swayed after such a small sampling of game, where other than holding the ball too long, Rodgers has played very well..

If they are pissed at Ted it should be for not addressing the talent along the oline or roster makeup within the Dline. 3 full time DT? Are you kidding me. Another gamble is banking on Harrell making an impact after recovering from back surgery. Not for the decision to play Rodgers, not much more he can do to help this team.

I agree with you. I can't make sense of Rodgers being gone short of someone holding a grudge about the Favre deal. That makes no sense from a football standpoint. The rest of it, I can understand.

lot of those guys on the board are just in name or so I have heard

Also during the summer drama one of the memebers allowed his private plane to be used for Mark Murphy to fly down to Brett in the famous "buy out"

I also heard that during the summer that the MAJORITY of the board had no issues with it at all, there were a FEW that didnt like it, but those few didn't say to much when it came right down to it.

I suspect that those FEW now are the ones raising the questions if at all

What I don't get is why anyone's against Aaron Rodgers . Aaron Rodgers 's been nothing but outstanding this whole season. If anyone has a beef against anyone, it should be Ted Thompson , not Aaron Rodgers .

Lets say for example. TWO of these board members are saying that kind of stuff, and all the rest are on TT's and MM"s side.
WHO do you think they are gonna follow........yup.....the two PO'd guys. After all, is there a story at all from the rest of the guys that back Ted Thompson and MM? Nope.
It's ALL about getting a "story" out.

Thats what i'm thinking.
These guys want a story, and will go after whoever gives them one to write.
It's much more interesting then them writting "Out of the 44 board members, all but 2 are backing Ted Thompson and MM".
Would anyone go "WOW! if they read that? I don't think so.

Somehow, I don't think the number is that lopsided either way. But I do think it will shift to one side or the other depending on how the team finishes.

This is audibles which comes from scouts, coaches, and other front offices personnel around the league.

In other words this is the belief around the NFL. It's not necessary the beliefs of the board. The only thing that matters is what the board believes and not what another GM or front office guy believes. I don't think Ted's future is in jeopardy right now.


Thanks for the information. That is good to know.


I don't know how a GM could go from GM of the year to on the hot seat in just one off season.


To see it from the Favre fan point of view - if you trade away a player of that caliber (leaving all the off season drama out of it and looking at it from a purely talent point of view), you had better be damn sure about the guy you are sticking in his place.


rodgers is beyond fine. I dont get this post.


Neither do I.

Nor does any of this make sense when you consider these two QB's talent will be crossing lines the more they play. Favre is getting older and Rodgers is getting more experience with each game and I believe there will be a clear picture even by this time next year who you would want on the field.

Favre may very well have been a better choice (but not by leaps and bounds by the way both have played so far) for 16 games.

When it comes to NEXT year and the year after that and the year after that making this move NOW will pay the dividends where his stock will be going up and Favre's going down with time.

The only "Board Members" talking this crap must have big noses they can't look past. Besides, anybody left that doesn't think Arod can play QB in the NFL?

I can tell you this there would be a lot more teams going after him then Brett Favre if the two became available after this year and you can take that to the bank.
