R-E-L-A-X. Aaron is in camp. No members of the management team have been fired. Concessions have been made but nobody really knows what that means, yet.
The summer of hand wringing is over for Packer fans. With it Rodgers seems to have a new influence in a potential trade. The pundit sites are falling all over themselves stating Randall Cobb is coming back to the Packers. Small caveat, Cobb is still signed as a Texan. How do you spell tampering? Oh, who cares, the Patriots cut corners for years and Tampa Bay didn’t put Brady on the injured list for his knee. Finally the Packers are playing just a little bit dirty, and on the first day of training camp it just feels like a small dirty pleasure. Like an ice cold beer at 4:30 PM when you are still technically on the clock. Let’s just relax and enjoy the good even if it tip toes over a line of an NFL rule.
If this rumor is true, one thing will be clear to the players in uniform, Rodgers can save you your job. Of course the edge on the other side of that sword is that he can also get you sent….packing. Yes, I used the worst Packer pun for a reason. This has the chance to be unifying for a team, but it also has the potential to make players feel sick and powerless. A pun can make some laugh, but potentially can make more moan and shake their head. The 2021 season will see where this new power that Rodgers possesses begins, ends and how it affects team unity. On day one of training camp, the only thing we can do is happily chant, “Go Pack Go!”
