I thought this post was going to be all about how my life got flipped turned upside down by the report that the Lions were moving on from Matthew Stafford, but then Aaron Rodgers lost the NFC Championship game, and said this afterward:
“There’s a lot of guys’ futures that are uncertain, myself included. That’s what’s sad about it most...There’s a lot of unknowns going into this offseason now, and I’m gonna have to take some time away for sure, clear my head, and just kind of see what’s going on with everything. But it’s pretty tough right now.”
That is Aaron Rodgers sending a message to the Packers, and sending a message to everyone else in the league, that he is not committed to returning to the Packers next season.
And if you think that’s crazy, remember, Rodgers has a history of using his media sessions to send messages to people. He is the same person that told Mike Tirico in 2019, “I know what I’m doing” when he speaks at press conferences.
If you’re a 49ers’ fan hoping they can acquire Rodgers next season, things couldn’t have gone better for you on Sunday. Despite a second straight 13-3 season for the Packers, another disappointing playoff exit could be the straw that breaks the Green Bay camel’s back for #12.
