[quote=MTK;1286415]Watched the AR presser and I had zero problems with his rationale. Sure he sounds like a diva but is he wrong? The only reason players go to GB is to have a chance to win and he's the main reason they are a contender year in and year out. I wish we had those "problems".[/quote]

I've never been to Green Bay but after spending 4 plus years in Buffalo he is right about the vacation part lol

He's basically asking for a trade without openly doing so.. I mean what employee can bash their employer every day and still stay on the job? I get it, he's a top 3 QB but come on dude

Take AR off that team and they struggle to be around .500. He knows he's got all the juice.

People go there because there are only 32 teams and every spot in the NFL is extremely valuable. People will be signing with Green Bay long after he leaves.

Did Preston Smith sign with GB because Rodgers was there or they offered him the most money? My guess would be the money.

Maybe a veteran receiver will sign a contract there partly because of him. But I don't think that's the same for most other positions.

The guy is a d-bag.

Unless he ends up on our team somehow, I hope he never wins another ring.

He can cry a river right into retirement.

Of course money plays in but GB sure looks more attractive with AR at the helm guiding them to 12 or 13 wins and a division title.

This.

If he leaves and the Packers build a team where all the "good" players signed because of the money, wellll we more than anyone should know how that works out.

There are premium players in this league that already have money and want to win a title. So they only want to go to teams that have a chance at the title. A-Rod affords them that opportunity.

Honestly, listening to the press conf, I didn't have any issues with his [I]arguments[/I]. Yes his presence is a factor that can help attract good players, and yes when your 17 seasons HoF QG says he wants to be more involved in decision making... you listen ! He seems to be a pain in the A, but as a franchise you can NOT let the dialogue and relationship break as GB's FO seems to have done.

My issue is, after publicly ripping the FO this way, how is this not going to affect the general mood in the building, and ultimately in the locker room ? How does the coach feel about it ?
It won't affect AR's level of play, but Football is still a team sport...

Colts' QB Carson Wentz is out indefinitely as he undergoes further testing on a foot injury that he suffered at the end of Thursday's practice, per
@MikeWellsNFL
and me.

Colts' second-year QB Jacob Eason took the starter reps at today's practice, with Sam Ellinger as his backup.

wow

What’s the knock been on Wentz? Can’t stay healthy. ACL, Back vertebrae…

Indy put themselves in this predicament

That hurts Eagles draft capital right?

Let's wait and see on Wentz. Preseason injuries are far different than regular season. This is the time for extra caution.

Yes I believe so, the draft picks Eagle will receive is based on Wentz's playing time

I take that back on Wentz, out indefinitely doesn't sound good lol
