The Green Bay Packers aren’t short on fans. The team may be embroiled in another stint of uncertainty regarding one beloved quarterback, and they may be lacking in recent silverware, but there’s one truth: Lambeau Field hasn’t lost its shine.
In fact, there’s been even more interest in season tickets lately. Across the US, sports betting markets have opened state by state. Today offers like FanDuel free bets are bringing betting culture to more and more fans. And doing something like live betting while attending a live game at Lambeau is on the bucket list for many.
But getting a ticket to a game, or even acquiring season tickets, is an art form. In fact, the Packers are known throughout the league for having one of the most sought-out season ticket pools in the NFL—and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change anytime soon.
2023 Packers Ticket Prices Increasing
This year, ticket prices are going up by quite a bit. Season tickets will increase by between $3 to $9 per game depending on where they’re located. Pre-season games will also be increased by up to $5. This means fans will have to pay more to attend the eight regular-season games scheduled for Lambeau Field later this year.
Though interesting, many fans might shrug at the increases in price. After all, it’s not necessarily the price that prevents people from attending games. Instead, it’s that fifty-year waiting list.
The Official Transfer Policy
Clearly, Packers fans who are able to finally get their hands on season tickets aren’t going to want to share that privilege. In fact, it’s become such a contentious issue for partners who are separating that the Packers officially created a transfer policy around season tickets.
The policy states that upon separation or divorce, couples who purchased season tickets together can transfer these to one or both parties. On the flip side of that coin, the transfer policy also corresponds to family members—and there have always been rumors that some sham marriages took place just so that someone could legally transfer their season tickets.
In fact, this transfer policy remains at the heart of the demand for season tickets. Because season tickets can be transferred, they can essentially be passed down. That means that around 98% of Packers fans keep their season tickets each year, leading to a very small number of new ones being awarded.
Will that change with this year’s price boost? For now, it’s too soon to tell—though any Packers fan would likely argue they’ll hold on to their tickets.
I have friends who have inherited tickets. Great seats too. Visitors side, 40 yard line, about 23 rows up right at the end of the row and next to a tunnel. I bought them a couple times to go but I won’t again. I have a better time watching at my favorite bar where everyone brings food and we all do shots when they score. Plus I’m not constantly getting run over by everyone else’s bathroom run. I get it, part of the experience, but for all the money I’ve shelled out for a home game trip it just hasn’t been worth it to do it more than a few times. I’ve had a better time going to Badger games frankly.
My friends are even getting tired of all the forever increases. Don’t know if it is enough for them to become motivated sellers but they are getting closer.
The luxury of being Packers management. You never have to deal with the problems of how bad things can be because you have this forever loyalty in the DNA of Green Bay.
I understand HOF players get increased ego’s over their career, but just make a friggin decision.
I know you’re smarter than most.
I know you played the game with mad skills.
Enough already, make a decision.
Is Aubrey Marcus paying Rodgers for his darkness vacation, and his long podcast, is this all a commercial and Rodgers is a paid actor?
I doubt it, but it seems like it could fall into the realm of possibility.
The Game 93.9 keeps saying how exhausted and sick they are talking about Rodgers. Yet continuously talk about him giving him air time for hours and hours and hours and hours each week.
6 weeks ago from Gute…Rodgers is a 4xMVP, he gives us the best opportunity to win over Jordan Love.
This week from Gute…Jordan Love is ready to start.
Is this Gutes way of sending Rodgers a message?
Well….Obviously Rodgers has all the power and leverage, the reason he has all the power and leverage, is because Gute and the Packers willingly gave it to him.
When i see how the acquisition and strategy plan of drafting Love has exposed itself through the years, maybe having someone (Murphy) who is in charge of football operations, should actually have some experience….in football operations.
Gute was obviously in over his head on that one.
Most GM’s with a team owner would have been let go for the drafting of Love, and blatant mismanagement of the situation. If Rodgers wants to come back, Love is on the bench for a 4th year.
Keep in mind Love’s future, is a decision Rodgers is making, not the team’s decision, which it should be.
They gave that power to Rodgers.
With Murphy as his boss, Gute gets an extension.
If my career is in a NFL front office, i’m going straight to the Packers, for job security.
Rodgers doesn’t have a no trade clause in his contract. (This one always makes me smile when i hear this).
Guess what….Rodgers can nix a trade with just an expression on his face without saying a thing.
If that’s confusing, let me know and i’ll walk you through it, T. Moshier
Godspeed to the loved ones of Chandler LeCroy (24) and Devin Willock (20)
Proof once again…..
Play stupid game, win stupid prizes.
#12’s next Darkness Retreat may be in the south Bronx…
In regards to the UGA Wonderlic wonders that you referenced, the other vehicle racing with them at the time of the fatal crash was driven by one fast and furious Jalen Carter.
Think he’ll still go in the top three? Heyyyy, maybe he’ll drop to 15. Maybe… Just hire him his own full-time Uber driver.
When i first read the articles of the crash pertaining to Carter, the first thing i do is look up the wonderlic score when someone does something stupid in the NFL.
It’s my default, i’ve been doing it forever.
Make no mistake, more times than not, most players who get in trouble, test low on the wonderlic.
Aqib Talib comes to mind right away, from years ago. But you never know, Jameis Winston scored a 27, allegedly 😕
From my post, down the hall if your interested.
Damn, it’s nice to read some voice of reason in here.
Nice write up Packy, we only disagree on Gute’s draft strategy, or lack thereof.
From rounds 3-7, Gute has been impotent in most of his draft classes.
I’m a Rodgers fan plain and simple, as a player.
He was the most skilled QB in his prime across the board i’ve ever seen and i’ve seen quite a few QB’s.
One of the differences now is he’s lost his legs to scramble and make all those “holy cow” pass play’s we jumped out of our chair over.
With that said…can Rodgers ego rub some people the wrong way…hell yea, even me sometimes.
But lets be honest about a few things….
1) Rodgers actions have only been allowed, because the Packers gave him that power.
Rodgers and his agent have been schooling Murphy/Gute/Ball for years, exposing their lack management skills concerning football operations.
You see a comment of Packer management being in over their heads…and i couldn’t agree more.
2) I said at the time, Rodgers should have been traded before the 2001 season. Two simple reasons…You could have gotten a Kings ransom in draft capital for him, and at the same time eliminated, or gotten a handle on the salary cap.
Bonus….Love would be entering his 3rd year of starting this season.
3) Lets be clear again…The Packers are in this situation for one reason, and one reason only.
Because they allowed it!!
4) Some could argue drafting Love was a huge mistake
A) They mishandled that pick concerning Rodgers, they should have prepped him for that pick.
B They clearly were planning to move on from Rodgers, but they mismanaged the transition. Then made a bad situation worse by giving Rodgers 101 million of fully guaranteed money a year ago.
C) They in essence gave up on a Championship run by not using that #1 pick to put new talent on the field, especially when they were one game away from the Super Bowl.
Bottom line….The Packers are in this position, because they put themselves in this position.
Be upset with Rodgers all you want it it makes you sleep better.
Your angst should be directed at Packer management, not Rodgers.
There’s no question that Aaron Rodgers is one of the most talent regular season QB’s to ever play the game. The key word here is regular season. What separates the men from the boys is the playoffs. Rodgers has never been able to rise to the occasion come playoff time. We hear lots and lots of excuses and get lots and lots of finger pointing why he can’t get it done. But never does he take responsibility. Patrick Mahomes is a perfect example of a truly great QB taking an inferior team and beating superior teams like Philadelphia and San Francisco in the SB. And he nearly beat Tom Brady and the Bucs with an awful OL in the SB. No one will ever confuse Rodgers for Mahomes, Brady, or Joe Montana, just to name a few. He’s far closer to Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees no matter how much his fanboys want to pretend otherwise. The Packers are in a great situation. We actually have a talented young QB on the roster who’s ready to run his HC’s offense. We have talented young WR’s, a strong run game, and a young and healthy OL. We have studs Gary, Alexander, Clark, Walker, Stokes on defense. All of which you can thank Brian Gutekunst and his staff. You want a poorly run organization? Look no further than Cleveland, Houston, or Carolina. The Packers are set up to win now whatever the little diva decides. Thanks to management not putting all its eggs in the Aaron Rodgers basket. As long as the Packers were winning 13 games a season, you put up with Rodgers and all his bullshit and call him eccentric. Once he slipped to 8-9 he’s no longer worth the drama. Jordan Love could do that for a fraction of the cost and without all the horseshit. The Packers couldn’t move off Rodgers two years ago because Love wasn’t ready. It’s the reason he fell to the bottom of the first round while Herbert was a top 5 pick. He had Justin Herbert talent but was raw and inconsistent. If he’s now ready to be a franchise QB, it’ll be worth the wait, even if that meant two more year’s of the little drama queen.
” We have studs Gary, Alexander, Clark, Walker, Stokes on defense. All of which you can thank Brian Gutekunst and his staff”
Don’t forget 14 million dollar man P. Smith…earned every penny, he was awesome at the Pro Bowl.
Yes Sir….Gary, when/if he can play
Clark, a Ted Thompson pick. But sure, thanks Gute 🙄
Alexander, good job Gute. BAM!! SCORE!!
Quay Walker, STUD? Did i read that right? Stud, or liability?
Don’t forget the other Mensa member Wyatt, another 1st round pick found riding the bench. We’ll see.
Stokes….Stud, really? 21 solo tackles, zero everything thereafter, and i mean zero.
Nottah, zilch, not even one pass defended. Tom, you ever think anything through before you click send?
The one thing i know for sure about Stokes, is that he earned his PFF grade of 53.7
Thanks Gute and his staff!! 😒
“We have talented young WR’s”
Ok, just a few quick questions….
1) Are we all set to go at receiver now? Tight end?
2) Do we have a clear #1 and #2 receiver at this point?
3) Are Watson and Doubs proven to be 1,000 yard receivers, or are the Packers going to go by committee again and just keep their fingers crossed.
” We actually have a talented young QB on the roster who’s ready to run his HC’s offense”
” If he’s now ready to be a franchise QB, it’ll be worth the wait….”
Ready to win, or run the offense?
There is that franchise word again….lol
I was going to blast you on that Love statement about being ready.
But then….all of a sudden, i remembered he proved himself to be ready.
I plumb forget, he completed 6 passes against soft coverage once.
A STAR WAS BORN THAT DAY!! 😮
What are the sports book odds on the Packers picking defense in the first round?
When Brian Gutekunst took over as GM, your OLB’s were the over the hill, over priced, Clay Matthews and the oft injured Nick Perry. Your starting corners were FA LaDarius Gunther and malcontent converted safety Damarious Randall. Your safeties were the vastly overrated Clinton Dix and some other stiff no one remembers. Just like no one remembers who the ILB was at the time. On the DL you had young and promising Kenny Clark and the try hard Dean Lowry and not much else. And the depth was even worse. This defense Kevin, is light years better than what Gutekunst inherited. Starting with the defense, and rightfully so, Gutekunst transformed this roster into winning 39 games in 3 years. I understand you’re not smart enough to see that. Because you wouldn’t know talent if it were to bite you in your fat, Wisconsin ass. Quay Walker is a sideline to sideline ILB that will only get better just like Rashan Gary. Another player you were too stupid to see his development. The comps of Christian Watson to Randy Moss are real. Just as the Romeo Doubs to Greg Jennings comps are real. Jordan Love’s ceiling could be Jalen Hurts. And even if it’s only Brock Purdy, he still does something Aaron Rodgers can no longer do, make the playoffs. But all you can do is be butt hurt because Gutekunst drafted a QB in the first round instead of Chase Claypool or some other average WR. Which, by the way, Claypool wasn’t worth the second round pick that either Pittsburgh or Chicago paid for him.
Always so angry Tommi, do you see anyone about that?
Possibly court ordered?
Spare me the history lesson Ragnar…lol
I’ve been a Packer fan, back before you were just a gleam in the eye of the man who raped your mother on the floor in a tavern bathroom at closing time.
Gee whiz Scooter…i hope the defense was better Princess, all we’ve done was draft defensive players in the first round since 2011.
Then the Packers spend 182 million on mostly defense.
This was after pissing away 10 mill/year on Jimmy Graham, and that other jamoke Wilkerson (Thanks Gute)
All that, and we have a defense that’s middle of the road.
Now, maybe this is too much to ask, but….for one draft, can we use a 1st round pick on an offensive player that actually contributes on the field….just this once?
We have/had enough 1st round pick bench players for awhile.
“The comps of Christian Watson to Randy Moss are real. Just as the Romeo Doubs to Greg Jennings comps are real. Jordan Love’s ceiling could be Jalen Hurts”
You mean like when you said Darnell Savage was the second coming of Nick Collins? LOL. I bet you also thought Quinten Rollins was the next Charles Woodson because he wore #24. Where did you get your fictional writing skills from, Tom? Danielle Steel? The way you turn everything into a romantic fantasy is really impressive. I can’t wait for your piece about how Gutekunst and Murphy made Love, the victim of the evil cockblocking Aaron Rodgers, into the greatest Matt LaFleur system QB of all time!
Now, I hope all of these kids end up having tremendously successful careers. But until one of them does something of significance, and does is consistently, lets hold off on the premature ejaculation, ok Fabio? Watson and Doubs have potential but lets pump the breaks on comparing them to Randy Moss and Greg Jennings. Plus, what did Greg Jennings ever accomplish after leaving Green Bay? Besides showing up on NFL gossip shows to whine about Aaron Rodgers. Kind of like yourself except he gets paid for it.
“Jordan Love’s ceiling could be Jalen Hurts. And even if it’s only Brock Purdy,….”
LOL….maybe we should hope that Love has a higher ceiling than the very last pick of the 7th round.
I’m just sayin…after 12 million dollars, and really dumb mismanagement over the years……
Lets hope Love’s ceiling is higher than a 7th round pick shall we?
After all, he did complete 6 of 9 passes that one time.
Let’s play the long game here Kevin. Cheese, you’re just as clueless, you get in on this too. I say the Green Bay Packers with Brian Gutekunst as GM, Jordan Love as QB, and the talent on this roster, wins 9 or 10 games next season and makes the playoffs. What say you two bozos? Quit bitching about it and put a number on it and let’s see which one of us is right. I see young ascending talent everywhere on this roster. I see a young innovative HC and a shrewd GM who has us ready to transition from one franchise QB to another. While you see mismanagement and dysfunction. So how many games do we win ladies? Two games? Four games? Five? Do we end up with the first pick in the draft next year? Quit bitching and put a number on it. Let’s see which one of us is right. Aaron Rodgers first year as starter went 6-10 because he had a shitty defense. Jordan Love will have Jaire Alexander, Kenny Clark, Rashan Gary, Quay Walker, Eric Stokes, all young ascending players on defense. While Aaron Rodgers had your beloved Jordy Nelson and James Jones at WR’s. Jordan Love will also have a pair of young ascending WR’s who are even more talented in Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs. And the run game is light years better now than anything Aaron Rodgers had to work with his first year as starter. Jordan Love will be give every opportunity to succeed in the NFL. He won’t have to carry this team. We know this offense works because it made an NFL QB out of Brock Purdy and a SB QB out of Jimmy G. Jordan Love is more talented than both and now knows this offense and can execute his HC’s game plan. Sure, they’ll be bumps along the way, but I say the future is bright, while you preach gloom and doom.
I preach reality sister.
If there is a point i make you disagree with, be a big girl and challenge me on it’s merit.
But you never do that, do you kitten?
Let’s start with the defense, all had lower PFF scores than in previous years. When they had a winning streak, the defense attacked the line of scrimmage, the receivers were hit right off the line, yet against Detroit they reverted back to what they did earlier in the season. Why stop doing what was working? The rookies both Walker and Wyatt… Walker got better but was also a liability with maturity issues, hopefully he cleans that up. Wyatt would have never seen the field had Lowery not been injured. Why the hell not? Lowery has always been just a guy. Once Gary was hurt there was no pass rush whatsoever. All of this points to one guy, first and foremost, the DC. That is a position that needs to be upgraded. All that talent that should be top ten and is mediocre at best.
The offense.. where to start with this. Rodgers played terrible at times, some due to injury and some due to wrong routes and some due to just his regression. The offensive line in the middle was a sieve at best. Jones had a great season, Dillon not so much. The line had injured players coming back and they needed time to get into football shape, but those who weren’t hurt really sucked. One thing really stood out, an injured Rodgers was a better option to win than a healthy Love? That was a first round pick and healthy and yet he sat on the bench? That speaks volumes. Everyone said it at the time Rodgers gives us the best chance to win. Everyone said Rodgers missed the OTAs… big deal.. they were voluntary. Add to the fact that some rookies wide receivers were injured, and were limited participants. They had preseason and every practice during the year, that is when they were not injured. Regression at tight end was glaringly obvious also. In the Detroit game Yosh, who was injured, started over Tom who was not. Why? that right side of the line was just plain awful on the first few series, that is until Tom replaced Yosh. My take, Adam should have stayed OL coach, he was good at that, not so much as OC. All that adds up to the head coach.
I see Sean, so the reason Aaron Rodgers could only put up 9 points and then 16 against Detroit was because of Josh Nijman and a thumb injury? Oh, and low PFF scores on defense? Yet Patrick Mahomes visibly limping from a high ankle sprain, without Tyreek Hill , and a roster not as talented as Philadelphia, came from behind to beat the best team in the NFC in the SB. It’s why Mahomes will be as NFL legend and Rodgers is a stat whore who’ll be remembered more for his off the field nonsense than anything he did on it. Does Jordan Love get the same amount of excuses next season as Aaron Rodgers? Cuz the only one making excuses for Erin now are a few remaining Packer fans. Everyone else is done with him.
Jordan Love should praise the Lord, and kiss the ground Rodgers walks on if he gets his 5th year option, guaranteeing him 32 million by the time he’s 27.
For doing what?
Only in America.
Newsflash Tommi….Love hasn’t gotten his 5th year option yet, dumb F.
It’s coming Kevin, so don’t you fret. And it’s 20 million, not 32. Since Jordan Love will start this year for a meager 2.4 million it’ll still be a bargain. The only question that remains is when will you get your New York Jets feet pajamas that you can wear to bed at night while jacking off to your Aaron Rodgers picture book?
“Here Aaron, please, take this, lets keep you around, here’s a 100 million fully guaranteed, don’t go!!”
“a shrewd GM who has us ready to transition from one franchise QB to another.” – Tommi
When it’s never to early to proclaim Love is a franchise QB….lmao
But then again…he did complete 6 passes.
Some time ago i mentioned, how it’s fools gold to jump a player up in grade based on his 40, bench press, or his vertical or cone drills, or whatever, but it happens every year.
I said there were two things good drafting teams want to know at the combine. His medicals, and his personality and character.
Because they already have a good idea if he can play or not in the NFL, a good guess anyway because nothing is guaranteed and a 40 time or 3 cone drill isn’t going to change that. Trust me, they have hours and hours and hours of scouting reports on players from real game tape. Piles of it.
Then you have the simpler minds who get a raging chubby over a high RAS score.
A few GM’s don’t care about a players wonderlic score, but show them a 40.5″ inch vertical (See Anthony Richardson) and they’ll show you a player who moved way up on there draft board in one day.
Here are some excerpts from NFL executives, taken from an article about getting rid of the combine.
“”For me it’s not even the working out portion, to me you grade them off the tape, you don’t grade them off somebody out here in pajamas running around. “But the meetings are great, the meetings are really pivotal ” Lions coach Dan Campbell said Wednesday
(Smart) Evaluators have said players are far more apt to be moved on a draft board based on information arising from the combine — a face-to-face interview or medical exam — than anything that happens during the on-field workout.
Off the cuff….Some say (Demaurice Smith) that the medicals are demeaning.
Well Gee whiz D Smitty…some of these players agents are demanding so much in guaranteed money Mr. Smith.
Every 1st round pick’s money is guaranteed, they aren’t entitled to that players medicals?
Lets say D. Smith is deciding whether to buy an existing business, can he go inside, look over the core of the company, have his CPA check it’s history of financials and acquire any other information he deems fit to make a decision.
Or does the Seller just tell him he can’t access that information and to stop being so nosy.
Personally, i can’t understand why Smith is still head of the NFLPA after getting his ass handed to him twice by the NFL.
But then again, Tom has had his ass handed to him hundreds of times, and like a bad case of herpes (no offense Mrs. Moshier), he’s always here.
Random….Is tomorrow Lebrons….oops
Check that….is tomorrow, Rodgers decision day?
Won’t be much longer now. It’s being reported that Aaron Rodgers has had conversations with the Jets and is open to the idea of playing for them. All that’s left is to hammer out compensation and how much of the contract the Packers have to carry. Where would we be without the Jets? No one else wants this guy, and he’s the best ever, or so I’m told…
So the trade is a done deal, except for hammering out the details?
The Jets flew out to talk to Rodgers, so therefore a deal is imminent?
When you were growing up, did a lot of adults tell you that you are special?
The offense.. where to start with this. Rodgers played terrible at times, some due to injury and some due to wrong routes and some due to just his regression.
Ok you fucktard read the whole line. That was based on his whole season not just the last game.
You bring up Patrick Mahomes, he has Kelce, the best tight end in the game. What do the Packers have that is even close to that?
In the Detroit game the first two drives were killed by terrible line play.
They had a fumble with Jones, A dumb ass play on 4th down in their own territory, A missed long field goal, Dropped passes that would have continued drives, one a possible touchdown, and a Rodgers interception.
I used that game because it was typical of the whole damn year.
You bring up these great young recievers, they were on the field together for what 12 snaps through 16 games because of injury.
Kurt Warner did just one analysis of a game explaining what he saw on tape every week, and he showed that recievers were continually running out of the play and making themself useless on the play, sometimes more than one receiver per play. I think he has a greater understanding of the game than you ever could.
Wouldn’t it be nice Sean if for once we didn’t have to make excuses for Aaron Rodgers? His fans have been making excuses for him for the last 12 years. Now it’s, if Rodgers only had a TE like Travis Kelce. Sure, and if Kirk Cousins had a perfect roster he could win a SB too. Patrick Mahomes, without a perfect roster, has been in three of the last four SB’s. Coming from behind late in the 4th quarter to win two. Aaron Rodgers couldn’t do that in your wildest wet dreams Sean. The great ones find away. Everyone else you have to make excuses for. So have at it…
Wouldn’t it be nice Sean, if for once when i comment, i didn’t have to bring up Aaron Rodgers?
I’d like that to, but i seem incapable. Maybe i do need help after all.
The New York Jets, Kevin, aren’t allowed to talk to a player under contract. The league rules prohibit it. Unless the team that owns that player’s rights allows it. In this case, management is saying talk to Erin all you want, we don’t want him! They’re not saying that about Jordan Love. He’s not going anywhere. While little Erin wants to be wined and dined and made to feel special before he puts out for Woody Johnson. It’s all part of the pee pee dance Erin loves to play. Pretending a trade isn’t inevitable doesn’t change that fact that your girlfriend isn’t coming back.
But, but…”WHAT….IF HE RETIRES!?!?
Any chance you can explain to us hick folk what a pee pee dance is.
Is this a dance Ragnar came up with, instead of….the wave?
What if he pulls a Derek Carr …. ?
Decision time this weekend. At this point, I want him gone. At this point, I’d give the Jets draft picks just to take him. I’d rather go 2-15 with Jordan Love than put up with another year of his bullshit and everyone else’s excuses on why he can’t win the big game. Patrick Mahomes beats Detroit last season, twice. Patrick Mahomes wins at least one SB in the three years we win 39 games. Not Rodgers. Not on any team. I don’t care how perfect you want to make it. He chokes. And if Jordan Love fails? Then we draft Caleb Williams next year. Either way it’s time to move on. That SB win from 2010 is a lifetime ago. Time to stop living in the past and look toward the future.
I’m trying to wrap my head around the fact Rodgers would be interested in the Jets, if that’s even the case.
The Jets defense gives up 18.6 PPG, so that’s a plus. Anything under 20 PPG, is pretty damn good.
When you start talking a defense giving up 15 or 16 PPG, you know you’re going places. Like the ’96 or 2010 Packers.
I just don’t know that the Jets offense is real attractive, They had a rookie receiver catch for 1,100 yards (nice), and 4TD passes (meh)
The Jets #2 receiver (TE) had 552 yards and 3 Td’s (meh)
The Jets #1 back started coming on strong , but then had a torn ACL. Not a great start to a rookie year, but a ton of upside if healthy.
All in all, these guys aren’t blowing my skirt up.
Is it worth leaving and starting over?
For me, noooooo…..
If someone wants to get out of Dodge? Maybe so.
The jets haven’t been to a SB since 1969.
The last 12 seasons saw no playoffs.
The Jets are still the Jets.
I worry about the interest of both sides, the Jets, and Rodgers.
I just don’t see what’s so special for either side.
Rodgers is a costly 1 or 2 year acquisition
The Jets aren’t ready yet, they just went 7-10.
The Jets will get injured players back, i get it.
But it isn’t good enough to pack up and start over.
Especially when you wanted to play your whole career for 1 team.
Maybe John Breech said it best…
“It’s interesting that the Jets have decided to go all-in on Rodgers even though Lamar Jackson is out there, but the Jets are the Jets and they’re going to do Jets things.”
Why wouldn’t he want to go to the Jets Kevin? According to your fine judgment Brian Gutekunst has run this organization into the ground. It’s only by the grace of Aaron Rodgers that we’re remotely competitive. This isn’t about Aaron Rodgers wanting to go to the Jets or anywhere else. He could have gone to Denver last year and he didn’t want to. He has said on multiple occasions he wanted to finish his career as a Packer. It’s Murphy, Gutekunst, and LaFleur that are done with him. He is simply no longer worth the headache. He signs a 150 million dollar contract extension then doesn’t show up to any OTA’s to work with his young receivers and to camp not in shape. Then the minute adversity hits, instead of showing leadership and taking responsibility, he throws his teammates and coaches under the bus. I suspect that was the breaking point. He was simply more interested in his book club and his weekly pressers on the Pat McAfee podcast where he could wax philosophical on any number of his bullshit issues. Rodgers with his many diverse interests couldn’t be bothered with football. The Packers can go 8-9 with Jordan Love without all the drama. It’s time to see what Love has to offer.
This isn’t about Aaron Rodgers wanting to go to the Jets or anywhere else. He could have gone to Denver last year but the Packers weren’t going to let him leave.
That’s why they gave him 101 million dollars fully guaranteed.
Please Kevin, pay attention
So the petty, egocentric, Aaron Rodgers calls out Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport on something trivial like missing the actual date on which he enters his “darkness retreat” by couple of days. Yet when Bob McGinn reports the Packers are “disgusted” with Rodgers and “don’t want him back” Rodgers says nothing. In the meantime all you fanboys call McGinn to task. Kevin himself saying, “Bob McGinn doesn’t know anything, Bob McGinn hasn’t covered the team in years!” Turns out Bob McGinn was right. Mark Murphy has gone on record now as saying the Packers don’t want Rodgers back and will only take him if they have to. Which means if Rodgers makes this difficult for them. The Packers will make this difficult for Rodgers. They’ll cut his buddies Randal Cobb and Marcedes Lewis. They’ll open up the starting QB job. And they won’t be afraid to bench his ass the first shitty game he has. And make no mistake, he’s gonna have them. He hasn’t had a good game since December 2021. Oh, the drama…
Know what else the Packers aren’t afraid of?
Being a sub .500 team
Being the laughing stock of the NFL, running a winning franchise into the ground.
March 19th 2020
Gute: Hey!! I have a great idea Murph, how about i trade up for a HOF QB in the 1st round of the up comimg draft
Murphy: Wouldn’t it make more sense getting a receiver as we were just one game away from the Super Bowl?
Gute: I’m not real big on tight ends or wide receivers Murph, plus, if we get in a bind i can always bring Devin Funchess back and maybe give Sammy Watkins a looksee. I can always work my magic and find us Pro Bowl tight ends in the 3rd round. It’s like taking candy from a baby outsmarting the rest of the NFL GM’s
Murphy : I’m going to sign off on this Gutey and give you my blessing this one time, because you almost sound like you know what your talking about.
But what if the new QB doesn’t work out?
Gute: Well, if my handpicked QB doesn’t look good after year 2, then we’ll just offer Rodgers a stupid amount of money guaranteed for 2022, and 2023 to stick around.
Murphy: Isn’t that quite a gamble Gutey.
Gute: Kind of like making me GM Murph (chuckle)?
Murph: Exactly like that, i have a feeling i’m going to regret this. But i’m going to retire in 2 years and i gave you a guaranteed 5 year extension so who cares, were set for life no matter what happens.
Gute: Sounds good Murph. Don’t forget, tomorrow is chili dog day for lunch from Dairy Queen and it’s my turn to buy.
Murph: Mmmm, goody, that’s my favorite.
Mark Murphy has to be one of the dumbest effing people. Openly talking about Rodgers in the past tense when you haven’t even traded him. What happens if the trade doesn’t go through and he wants to keep playing? The Packers didn’t really have any leverage to begin with, and he openly discussing the organization wanting to part ways is buffoonery.
Kato, the Packers have to pay him. It says nowhere in his contract that they have to play him. The organization doesn’t want him. The squeeze is no longer worth the juice. They’re going to start Jordan Love. The decision has been made. He can ride the bench in Green Bay or get his ego stroked in New York. His choice. And make no mistake, he knows exactly what he’s going to do and has for months. This is just his one last “fuck you” to the Packers by making them wait for having the audacity to move on from him. Kevin, we were 8-9 last year with your butt buddy at QB. Last I checked, 8-9 is sub .500. I know the new math confuses you.
“The organization doesn’t want him….” – urine stench
Except, just 6 weeks ago when Gute was praising Rodgers and his skills over Jordan Love saying Rodgers gives them the best chance to win.
Again, that was 6 weeks ago…there must have been a meeting since then with Daddy (chuckle).
Maybe Gute spoke out of turn, or before he got Daddy’s permission to speak.
About the only thing we know for sure is that Murph’s training wheels are still holding Gute up.
BTW….Kato is absolutely spot on. Murphy should be saying absolutely nothing before there is resolution.
Why?…..Because there is no upside in saying anything, but there is potential to look like a damn fool if you do.
Sometimes silence is golden.
I would explain that further, but Tommi still wouldn’t understand it, so why waste the time he could be playing with his leggo’s.
Just more proof, Murphy is still clueless when it comes to running football operations.
As President, i guess Murphy had every right to name himself the Boss and final decision maker concerning football operations.
It does NOT mean he’s qualified.
To give himself that power, Murphy had to change the Packer by-laws to do it, and reverse what Bob Harlan and Ron Wolf fixed.
Time…always has a way of unveiling the truth, slowly but surely.
Mark Murphy can say whatever the hell he wants. The organization has spelled this out to Aaron Rodgers months ago behind closed doors. What Murphy said was no big revelation if you’ve been willing to read between the lines. There’s both the public perception from the organization, we love you Erin, you’re a great player. And the private reality, we’re done with this prick let’s get him out of here, as reported by both Bob McGinn and Tom Silverstein. The two seasoned reporters have spent their careers covering the Packers and would know by having multiple inside sources. Sometime during that awful 5 game losing streak the decision was made not bring him back next year and to go with Jordan Love. As a Packer icon, and because of his 18 years of service, he was allowed to finish the season as starter and management showered him with praise at seasons end. None of which means squat. Everyone says Rodgers holds all the cards because of his contract. He doesn’t. Rodgers wants to stay but management does not want him no matter how much you pretend otherwise Kevin. Rodgers has spent his whole career getting his ass kissed. Those days are over in Green Bay. Not so in New York. His ego too big to be Jordan Love’s water boy and not be the center of attention. Plus Rodgers can cruise for love with all the gay night life in New York. It’s a win/win for everyone!
“Everyone says Rodgers holds all the cards because of his contract. He doesn’t”
Yeah, ok there dipshit. Keep taling out of your ass.
Meanwhile over at Packers.com-
“If Rodgers ultimately decides he wants to continue his career nowhere else but Green Bay, he can and will. The Packers can’t just release him because the cap hit would be untenable, and he essentially has veto power over any trade because he could retire (eliminating anybody’s desire to trade for him). I’m sure honest discussions have taken place, so both parties know where they stand, but regardless, the ball is truly in his court.”
The money isn’t the issue, Cheese. The Packers have to find out if Jordan Love is the long term answer at QB. To know that is to play him. This has all been explained to Rodgers. Rodgers himself has said, in order for him to return to Green Bay there has to be mutual interest. There is not. Murphy has said as much. The San Francisco 49ers were perfectly willing to pay Jimmy Garappolo 30 million to be Trey Lance’s back up last season. The Packers will do the same with Aaron Rodgers if they have to. Sure Rodgers can return to the Packers to stick it to management, but he hurts his legacy more than he hurts the Packers. No one cares what a backup QB has to say. Or, he can go to New York and be the toast of the town. Which would you pick Cheese?
“The money isn’t the issue, Cheese.”
“The San Francisco 49ers were perfectly willing to pay Jimmy Garappolo 30 million to be Trey Lance’s back up last season. The Packers will do the same with Aaron Rodgers if they have to.”
$50 million is a heck of a lot more money than $30 million. If the front office pays Rodgers $50 million dollars to sit the bench they should be ran out of town ASAP.
“No one cares what a backup QB has to say.”
Rodgers isn’t the back up QB. Love is. In that regard you are saying who cares what Love has to say because he’s under contract anyway and Rodgers has all the leverage because the front office gave it to him. Keep pretending otherwise though.
Cheese, you’re not listening to what the Packers are saying. Gutekunst: “we believe Jordan Love is an NFL QB and the next step in his progression is to start.” Murphy: “Rodgers, like Favre, had a great career for the Packers, but rarely do players play their whole career with one team.” Murphy: “we’re trying to work out a situation (trade) that’s beneficial for both the Packers and Rodgers.” Murphy: “we’ll keep Rodgers only if we have to.” No one Cheese is trying to trade Love. No one in the organization has given Love permission to speak with another team about a trade. The decision has been made. It’s Jordan Love. No one, with the exception of you and Kevin, are saying we have to start Aaron Rodgers because of money. No one! Jordan Love will play next year. We know this by both words and actions of the organization. And if we know it, then so does Rodgers. Of course management will say good things about Rodgers as they show him the door. It’s the diplomatic, classy way of handling an awkward situation. I would expect no less from my team.
” No one, with the exception of you and Kevin, are saying we have to start Aaron Rodgers because of money. No one!”
No one is talking about having to start Rodgers because of money because no one is stupid enough to think that a team is going to sit a $50 million QB, you moron. It’s not even an option of discussion in the media because it is such an incredibly stupid fucking idea. If Rodgers is with the Green Bay Packers this season, he is the starting quarterback.
“And if we know it, then so does Rodgers.”
Right, I’m sure Rodgers is shaking in his boots at the thought of sitting the bench behind Jordan Love so he’s trying to hightail it to another team as soon as he can. Welcome to Tom M’s Fantasy Land everyone!
I’m sorry Cheese, this team is no longer about Aaron Rodgers and his contract. That time has passed. It’s about the future of the Green Bay Packers and who will be the next franchise QB. That’s now Brian Gutekunst’s focus. Whether Gutekunst ultimately keeps his job will be determined if he finds the next great Packer QB. It starts by playing Jordan Love next year to find out. No one is losing their job because Aaron Rodgers gets 59 million this season. The New York Giants are paying Daniel Jones 40 million. Which means Woody Johnson is getting Rodgers at almost a bargain. Almost. Jimmy Garappolo signed with the Raiders. If you’re Woody Johnson and the Jets this has to get done now. The Jets are fresh out of options.
Now Jets fans are sick of Aaron Rodgers because he won’t make a decision and he hasn’t even been traded yet. Welcome to the circus New York. Can’t have a circus without a clown. Rumors are swirling around that the Raiders may have entered the Rodgers sweepstakes at the last moment thus the delay. I’m not buying it. The drama queen has to be the center of attention. He’s gonna milk this for all it’s worth.
Just like you do, in here?
