Life Without Aaron Rodgers

Well, it finally happened. Aaron Rodgers is no longer a Green Bay Packer as he moves to the Jets, ending an 18 year run. We all saw it coming, so there were no surprises.
I’m somewhat torn in how I feel, but I’ve also been saying for the past year that this is for the best for both parties involved.

Green Bay was just never going to win another Super Bowl with him as QB. He took up too much of our salary cap to logically build a championship around him. Compounding things, his declining play due to age means he’s no longer able to compensate for that through excellent play. We all saw how last season went.
Now, that’s not to say he couldn’t win another Super Bowl on his own, if put in the right place. Is New York that place? That remains to be seen. But I could all but guarantee he wouldn’t have won another championship with us, and that’s all that matters.

I’ll definitely miss him, and while scores of Packer fans are cheering his departure, they’ll miss him as well. He showed us some great football in his career, and I’ll be forever grateful of that. He gave me many fond memories that I will talk about for a lifetime, and I can’t ignore that.
But he was also a huge drama queen. That part I’ll never miss. There was always something with that guy. ranging from slightly goofy, to “OMG please shut up”.

Is Love the guy? I’m not sure. But I’ve been wrong before. I hated Favre in his first year with Green Bay. I hated Rodgers in his first year in Green Bay as well. They both proved me wrong. Maybe Love has a similar story to tell. But we’ll never know unless we let him tell it.

I wish massive amounts of luck to both Rodgers and Love in the upcoming season.
