Aaron Rodgers is going to force the Green Bay Packers to keep him around as long as possible if he keeps playing like this. Rodgers tore up the Minnesota Vikings defense on Sunday afternoon, leading the Packers to a 43-34 win against the division rival.
The Green Bay Packers did nothing to help Rodgers in the 2020 offseason. They did not draft a single wide receiver, the “big name” (if you can even call him that) free agent they signed was Devin Funchess. Funchess, by the way, opted out of the season.
Rodgers raved about Jake Kumerow during the offseason, someone who Vendetta writers though had big fantasy potential. The Green Bay Packers decided to cut Kumerow. They were giving Aaron Rodgers a clear message that he did not have much control when it came to front office decisions. Let’s say Aaron Rodgers came out with a fire under his ass because the Packers put him on the clock when they drafted Jordan Love.
Aaron Rodgers came out swinging against the Vikings, relying on his favorite target Davante Adams as the quarterback and receiver connected on 14 passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns. Rodgers decided to spread the love around a bit; he connected with Marquez Valdes-Scantling four times for 96 yards and a touchdown. Allen Lizard didn’t miss out either, catching four balls for 63 yards and one touchdown.
After an offseason of disrespect from the organizations he’s spent all 15-years with, Rodgers is saying, “I still got this.” He’s sending the message to Jordan Love that he’ll be sitting on the bench for a while. While Rodgers seemed to turn back the clock today, we’ll see if it is sustainable for the entire season. Either way, he’s sending the message to the Packers that his time is not up yet.
