    Naomi Osaka — now with Simone Biles!!

    Ya not sure about any of that. I assume she scrambled for an excuse. Not easy to fail on the biggest stage.

    Im not sure if this has been mentioned, but i heard it on a podcast. Below is an article about the "twisties", which is what happened to Simone. Getting lost in the air and not knowing where your body is can lead to a bad landing and even paralysis. Easy call on her part. Not worth it. https://twitter.com/DeannaHong/status/1420284803711123459?s=20 https://news.yahoo.com/elite-gymnasts-simone-biles-lucky-172543808.html

    Sounds like Rodgers is retiring

    There are only 53 roster spots. They are valuable spots to these guys, even if you consider them insignificant. Should they have done it to make Rodgers happy? Maybe, considering he is so upset about it and hes the most valuable guy in the entire organization. But the right football move is to keep the younger guy. I understand a guy who has spent his entire career evaluating personnel wanting to keep the player with more potential. I also get that you have to consider the fact that Rodgers is so sensitive and you dont want to upset him. Its not black and white.

    Brady has no business scouting WRs, but if it makes him feel good then more power to them I guess. Kumerow, Shepherd, and Taylor were all bottom tier WRs fighting for a roster spot. The difference is Kumerow is 4 years older than them. It was 100% known where Kumerow's ceiling was. The other guys at least had potential. I think any GM in the league will take the younger guy in that spot.

    I understand your points on Cobb. I don't agree but I see where you're coming from. The Packers are known to move on from a player a little early rather than a little late. I think this is part of what bothers Rodgers. As far as input. I agree they should listen to him, to a point. With him, trust in receivers is important. It should play into the decision on who makes the roster. It should be considered. I agree with you there. But age and potential also need to be considered and that's why Rodgers should understand why they decided to move on from a guy like Kumerow, even if he had faith on him.

    Love was drafted to sit. Rodgers was drafted to start immediately. We are talking about a guy that the team moved on from like 3 years ago and that they just traded to get back. How does that make sense? He has had one impactful year out of his last 3. Yes injuries played a part there but he's not getting any younger. It wasn't a move to make the team better. It was a move to make Aaron happy. All of Aaron's complaints aren't due to the front office not keeping the most talented guy. Its when they don't keep his friends (Jordy, Kumerow, QB coach).

    I realize both of those things. I also realize they have the same exact role in the offense. They will rarely be on the field at the same time. So are we benching our new draft pick for Cobb or did we just trade for Cobb to backup Rodgers? Unless MLF is going to unleash some new dual slot heavy offense, I don't get it.

    This is what gets me. All these pundits that say Rodgers should have input on personnel decisions because he has earned it. How has he earned it? Every scout and personnel guy that has devoted their career to player evaluation and building a complete team has earned it more than Rodgers has. The Packers just traded for Randall Cobb, which seems like an odd move to placate Rodgers. These are the types of moves they have to make for Rodgers to be happy? It's an awful move to throw away a 6th round draft pick and spend $6 million on a guy that is no better (at this point of his career) than other receivers already fighting for a roster spot. He just happens to be good friends with Rodgers. This is why he shouldn't have input. Gutekunst can't be making moves to make Rodgers happy because it's his job to keep the team competitive every year. If he goes all in and it doesn't work out, he's out of a job. Hell even if it does work out and they don't have a replacement for Rodgers, he's out of a job. What the average time a GM with no QB lasts in the job before being fired?

    There is a direct correlation to how active someone is on LinkedIn and how much of a corporate drone they are.

    A lot of hate for the Packers GM in here. People have short memories. Yes, Rodgers was MVP last year...AFTER they drafted Jordan Love. The two or three years before that it looked like he was declining. Everyone pointed out how awful that draft pick was because they made it the the NFC Championship that year, but fail to recognize Rodgers wasn't great. GB saw this and wanted to plan for the future. My only complaint is that they extended Rodgers when he showed signs of declining, it did't mesh with the Love pick. People want to attack the GM but he still holds the power in this situation. If Love sucks, they still have Rodgers undr contract for like 3 more years. If Love looks good, then they will have their heir and move on from Rodgers, He can put up cryptic social media posts like a 13 year old girl all day long but it doesn't change the fact that he has no power in this situation. If GB wants him, he can play or retire. If they don't want him, it's because they've found his replacement. Also as far as GB needing to tell Rodgers they were thinking of drafting his replacement...Gutekunst did say he was open to it, although in my opinion he shouldnt even have to. https://www.si.com/nfl/packers/news/gutekunst-wont-rule-out-drafting-quarterback
