There's a good argument both ways regarding the Love pick.
I hate to say it, but the biggest problem may be your head coach. That's a tough one to overcome.You guys think we can still compete with Jordan Love?
thanks but drafting a #2 WR at #6 using next year's 1st and using a 3rd next year to move up and draft a RT, hurts. Just gotta hope our very talented DE Phillips doesn't ever hit his head again or he may retire. Another gem draft by Grier smh. I see your draft was less than spectacular as well. At least you have two franchise QBs on the roster where we have none
Glad you give the approval but... I believe we gave up a generational talent then got out played by other teams throughout the draft ~ a disaster
In terms of long term potential Love was actually my third favorite QB in last year’s draft. I watched him against my Sparty defense week one of 2018 and I honestly thought our defense was going to have a down year. Turns out that Michigan State D was actually pretty damn good until the incompetence on offense started to wear them down towards the end of the year. But Love just kept leading drives, making plays, making good decisions and good throws and keeping that game tight. After that I watched him tear up lesser competition in the MWC and thought “okay, this kid is legit”. Yes, 2019 was a down year for him, but you’re dealing with new coach, new offensive philosophy, and basically new skill players to deliver the ball to. Not that I’m making excuses for him, but that is a lot of turnover for any young QB to adjust to. Going to GB was the perfect landing spot for him, I thought, much like Rodgers way back in the day when he could sit and learn behind Favre (who also wasn’t too thrilled about his replacement being drafted iirc). He’s a phenomenal player with a high ceiling and I’m excited to see what he can do whenever he takes over in GB (though for his sake I hope he gets another year on the bench to pick up more of the cerebral side to the game).You guys think we can still compete with Jordan Love?
I believe the issue is more straightforward. They never told Rodgers they were going to draft Love; he found out after the pick was public. At that point their relationship was over. He wants a contract extension because the team’s out in his contract is 2022. He knows a 1st round pick QB on a cheap contract is sitting on the bench. Not much point playing for a team that will probably cut you in a year or two to save money. That being said, I heard Love was pretty much terrible in practices and whatnot last season and a lot of the team questioned the pick.I may have some news for you on the situation between A. Rogers and Green Bays management. This is pure speculation on my part, but it makes too much sense for me to ignore.
A. Rogers wants the Packers to get rid of there new GM. The source for this did not say why. Let me see, Aaron isn't:
1) Being told that a new QB was coming.
2) Happy with current or past coaching decisions.
Management says they want Rogers to play out his contract in Green Bay. To support this they bring in a new GM and then they:
1) Don't tell Aaron that a new QB was coming.
2) Don't show support any more changes to the current Staff.
Does not Compute!
What does compute is this:
1) Rogers has a big contract for 4 or 5 more years.
2) It is probably too big to make any cost effective trade possible.
3) GB management would like to see Rogers go away.
4) GB management is tired of Rogers being a Prima Donna, they have seen this act before.
5) They hired a new GM to handle things, hum, what things. How about this:
They new Gm's special project is to piss off Rogers so much that he retires, thus killing the expense of his big contract.
They will achieve this by ignoring his wishes, growing the team as if he wasn't there, picking players that meet the new coaches plans, continue to get rid of key supporting players in order to set up trades and control cap space and start playing better in spite of Rogers, not because of him.
If all this is actually happening, then I am probably right. I can't help it - LOL
I personally love Rogers as a QB, but when a QB whines enough to help get a coach fired, he has cut his own throat. Being right will not be considered an acceptable excuse by management.
I hope this bit of my casual insight helps you make sense out of what is going on up there.
