What’s Next for Aaron Rodgers?

The Green Bay Packers were eliminated by the San Francisco 49ers in their divisional round playoff on Jan 23, ending Aaron Rodgers’ quest for a second Super Bowl ring. His future at Lambeau Field is now uncertain as he enters the summer. After the Packers failed to reach the Super Bowl once again, the questions surrounding his future plans once again must be asked.

This season, Rodgers has performed at his usual best. Despite missing some time due to Covid and the related controversies, the quarterback has put in some MVP-worthy performances. Currently, he’s the odds on favorite to win the season’s MVP award at the NFL Honors on Saturday, Feb 12. This would be his second award in successive years, a remarkable feat that few can argue with.

If the Packers had managed to beat the 49ers, they would have just been one game away from reaching another Super Bowl, needing to get past the Rams first. Instead, Rodgers will be watching on enviously as the Rams take on the Bengals on Sunday. The Rams are the favorites to lift the Vince Lombardi trophy, with odds of -200 at Betway. It will be a game to remember, with the Rams last winning in 2000 and the Bengals reaching the Super Bowl for the first time since 1988.

Did the Packers Fail Rodgers?

Despite being the season’s MVP, Rodgers wasn’t able to drag the Packers over the line. The Green Bay Packers had a good season, finishing first in the NFC North with a record of 13-4 in the regular season. Unfortunately, they lost their first playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers, meaning that they would be once again missing out on reaching the Super Bowl. The team and Aaron Rodgers now haven’t been to the Super Bowl since 2011, and time is starting to run out for the league’s top quarterback.

Rodgers is now thirty-eight years old, and while he’s still got a few seasons left at the top level, one major injury could always end things prematurely. He threw over 4,000 passing yards during the regular season and was certainly one of the league’s best-performing players on a consistent basis. Although behind other quarterbacks in total yards thrown, he still had a much higher pass rating than most others.

When asked about what his future would hold, Rodgers had the following to say: I’m going to take some time and have conversations with folks around here, and then take some time away and make a decision, obviously before free agency or anything gets going on that front.
“It’s fresh right now. A little shocking for sure. I was hoping to have a nice weekend for the NFC Championship, to enjoy the lead-up and then start contemplating some things, so I haven’t even let the moment really sink in yet.”

Who Could Replace Rodgers?

While Rodgers is one of the league’s best performing players and a top quarterback, he’s certainly not irreplaceable. Teams have succeeded in replacing big players before, and it’s a necessary part of maintaining a successful team.

Green Bay selected Jordan Love in the first round of the NFL Draft in 2020 with the intention of replacing Rodgers as the franchise quarterback. Rodgers was not expected to leave so soon at the time, and a more experienced quarterback would most likely be required.
The success of Matthew Stafford at the Los Angeles Rams shows that the Packers could potentially bring in an experienced player without too much difficulty. One option would be Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons. Ryan is a quality player who has perhaps not had the best of luck being on a side that has struggled. Although he’s entering the latter stages of his career, it would be an excellent trade that could provide the Packers with what they need.

    Crickets.
    Wow.
    No one has anything to say?
    Not so surprising. You need to find out if he might somehow stay first. Then you can speak highly of him. If not? Throw him under the bus as Packers fans love to do to their own as soon as they are not their own.
    You wait for the right answer before you stake an opinion.
    But there is no right answer. Stay or go (he’s going), Aaron Rodgers is a sorry miserable mess of a human being, with less in his ethics tank than 99% of all kindergartners. Whether he stays or goes does not change that.

    Yet…..he’s been living rent free in your head…for years….lol
    .
    Tommi, you’ve mentioned Rodgers more than anyone who ever has been on this site.
    Almost ever G D post you make revolves around your hatred for Rodgers.
    .
    Listen up little man…that’s an unhealthy obsession.
    .
    Keep being your miserable self if you want to killer.
    But all you’re doing is telling us what a sad, angry, miserable bastard you really are.

    I hope your next hobby (obsession) is not full of all the hate you currently live with.

    HOLY SHIT

    Wrong again PF4L. I don’t hate Aaron Rodgers. I just don’t suck his dick like you and so many of your lady boy friends who post here. He’s a flawed QB that doesn’t handle adversity well. The great ones always find a way. While Rodgers never does. Not in the playoffs. Not when it counts. He spends too much time gloating over awards and stats. Then he bullies teams like the Chicago Bears. Not cool when he can’t even beat the 49ers in the playoffs. He’d be better off keeping his mouth shut until he actually wins something important like a SB. Instead we get book clubs, pseudo science, and a laughable comparison to Michael Jordan. He deserves all the shit he gets. And it’s not just coming from me.

    ” I don’t hate Aaron Rodgers”

    LOL…..You go right ahead and stick with that story killer.

    But why does your mind always default to you imagining men orally gratifying other men?
    Is there something you want to tell us?

    In todays society, people no longer have to hide in the closet Sparky.

    Did you ladies see what Matthew Stafford did in the 4th quarter of the SB with less than two minutes in the game? Can you say, he threw a TD pass? Not if your an Aaron Rodgers fanboy. You don’t know what that is. Wasn’t looking good for the Rams. Stafford, undeterred and getting the shit knocked out of him, kept swinging. Had that been Rodgers, he’d have mailed it in. Knowing full well that the MVP award was his and his legion of clueless fans would blame “the team.” Little Erin, oh, so special in every way!

    Stafford..2 sacks, 5 QB hits

    Burrow…7 sacks, 11 QB hits

    You can’t fix stupid.

    Yet Burrow led until the very end. As I recall PF4L, you were the dumbass who said we’d go into Cincinnati and easily beat the Bengals back in September. I said not so fast, the Bengals were better than you gave them credit for. Sure enough, we were lucky to win that game and the Bengals went on to the SB. Both QB’s, Stafford and Burrow got hurt. I’d take Burrow or Stafford over Rodgers. They did something tinker bell never does. Win in the playoffs. All the stats in the world can’t defend your hero now PF4L. It’s time to move on.

    What’s this? Hollywood’s power couple breaks up? But, but, Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley were soulmates! They just knew it was meant to be! What a fucking joke! Aaron Rodgers should have stuck with my private life is my private life story. Instead he’s gone thru as many beards as he has MVP awards. Now it’s just embarrassing. Real couples don’t get engaged after just a few months of dating then never set a wedding date. Real couples in love spend all their time together. Except for one photo op in Hawaii when Rodgers was supposed to be in training camp. You never saw those two idiots together. She became a bigger celebrity than he was. The only PR Rodgers provided was negative. He was a drag on her career. She thought she was getting Tom Brady, the real GOAT. Instead, she got the Joe Rogan of the NFL. This has to be a lot for you ladies to come to terms with. Aaron Rodgers isn’t the GOAT and he isn’t heterosexual. Can’t say I didn’t tell you. But go ahead, blame me and live in denial.

    So, you still stand a chance there Tommy Boy.

    She became a bigger celebrity than Rodgers was.
    Because everyone knows who Shailene Woodley is.
    She’s a household name now.
    Most people have forgotten who Erin Rodgers is/was.
    Remember Ladies, when you read my comments, i don’t hate Erin Rodgers.
    You believe me……right?
    I always try to leave an impression on people in my post.
    Feel free to tell me what impression anyone here gets when reading my comments.

    You girls live the fantasy. Where heterosexual Aaron Rodgers is the best QB ever! And had Ted just drafted TJ Watt we’d have won multiple SB’s by now just like he has in Pittsburgh. Oh, wait, that never happened. Never mind.

  15. Tom M February 18, 2022

    Ed, I’m gonna give you the first shot. Send Erin flowers over his traumatic break up and with a little luck, you too could be the next Kevin Lanflisi! Wouldn’t that be dreamy Ed? You’d be the envy of the Erin Rodgers fan club here at Total Packers! Aaron Rodgers was far more interesting, not to mention happier, when he didn’t pretend Micheal Jordan, didn’t pretend to be an intellectual, and didn’t pretend to be straight. Somewhere along the line he became a self absorbed diva. The Antonio Brown of NFL QB’s. Your hero!

    So i’m reading that comment from Tommi about Rodgers being gay.
    It reminded me of some old post.
    So i go back, and i read a comment by Tommi…OOPS.
    I meant killer!!
    He mentions Rodgers…22 times!
    Yes, 22 times, in one post.
    I shit you not.
    Think there is some serious obsession going on there?
    Nooooooo…..lmfao
