Scope: Okay It’s Time, With A Heavy Heart, To Say Goodbye & Thanks For The Memories Number 12

Firstly, I’d like to state that I write this blog with a heavy heart.

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a massive Green Bay fan but an even bigger AARON RODGERS fan (despite the snub in 15, it’s all good baby)

But it’s time to accept reality. Number 12 will never wear the iconic Green & Gold jersey again.

The writing was on the wall last year when our egotistical GM traded up in the 2020 draft to select an unproven, developmental QB from Utah State in Jordan Love’

Initially I was devastated with the pick.

I thought we were a piece or two away from returning to the NFC championship game and having a legit run at the Super Bowl.

But on second thought, after leaving emotion at the door, I tried to figure out the thought process of such a shocking selection and, I guess I saw the bigger picture. But ultimately I still thought they made an irreversible mistake.

I’m sure a part of the decision was to light a fire a fire under A-Rod – and that it did!

Although I think they never envisioned was how much it pissed him off.

Rodgers had the season of doom & consequently won his third MVP.

Which flipped the leverage back in his favour. It’s clear to see his best years will outlast Love’s rookie contract.

The organisation knows that, rest of the league knows that – but more importantly the diehard GB fans know that.

On the 1st of June his dead cap hit can be spread out over two years so logistically & logically, it makes sense that the divorce will take place after that date.

There will be an A.Rodgers playing at Lambeau next year but he won’t be playing QB. Good luck Amari.

Thanks for the memories #12 – forever in my heart.
