Yes, and we are going to be paying him more than that. I just think a team would have to be pretty desperate for a QB to trade for Rodgers and pay him that. That's just my take on it all.
The Packers wouldn't owe Rodgers a cent if they trade him this offseason. They would take $40.3 million of dead money counting against their cap though.
At this point, I would take Daniel Jones over Rodgers.
I'm sorry that's ridiculous. Daniel Jones threw for only 15 touchdowns last season while starting 16 games. He has a total of 36 over his last 41 starts.
I've actually long now held the belief IF Jets want him we should offer they keep their #13 and take both their 2nd and 3rd rounders + conditional futures realistic (like a 2024 starting at a 3rd - playoff escalates it - SB appearance it goes to a 1st...and do a similar build with the 2025 conditional starting at like a 5th - he is rostered in 2024 up to a 4th - playoff team ups to a 3rd - super bowl appearance to a 2nd - wins a SB 1st).
I'm sorry but the Packers shouldn't make an offer to the Jets. Let's wait and see what they would be ready to part with to acquire him.
How so? So Rodgers played well when he had a big lead. That's irrelevant to what we are talking about here - Rodgers' inability to come through in clutch moments the past few seasons.
In my opinion being up by seven points shouldn't be considered a big lead. But of course you ignore it as it doesn't fit your narrative. In addition you suggest to ignore his fourth quarter performance against the Niners in the 2019 NFCCG because they were down by too many points as well. That truly indicates you don't want to fairly evaluate his play.
Name one thing Brady does better than Rodgers? Win big games (one could also say Not Lose Big Games). My point is the people who keep pushing this “well Tom Brady really isnt that great” line sound stupid after anout his third Super Bowl …. Then there his 4th, then his 5th, then his 6th, then his 7th, then his 8th, then his 9th, then his 10th. Yeah …. He actually lost 3 and Rodgers is a perfect one for one so there’s that. LOL
Brady made it to the Super Bowl with his defenses ranked 6th (2001), 1st (2003), 2nd (2004), 4th (2007), 15th (2011), 8th (2014), 1st (2016), 5th (2017), 7th (2018) and 8th (2020) in points allowed.
Aside of the one outlier in 2011 he never made it to the Super Bowl without an elite defense. During that season the Patriots defense significantly improved in the playoffs, allowing only 17 points per game which would have ranked fourth in the regular season.
Rodgers has had the benefit of having a top eight scoring defense only twice in his career. In 2009, that unit faltered in a playoff loss at Arizona in which putting up 45 points wasn't good enough to win the game. The following season the Packers won the Super Bowl with by far the best defense (2nd in points allowed) Rodgers has ever been surrounded with.
But no QB is perfect, not even the greats. All of them have 2-5 throws a game that just aren't that good. I didn't see Rodgers out of the norm in that regard. Maybe for him, but not for those considered the best in the game overall. Rodgers would have those, then he'd have 2-5 that were absolute dimes and big plays to be had that wouldn't be made and then the rest. When you added in the less than good throws and the plays not made, every week looked worse for the QB than he is, or is compared to the other good ones in the league.
According to PFF, Rodgers ranked 2nd among the 32 quarterbacks with the most pass attempts in 2022 in big time throw percentage at 5.7%. In addition only four of those quarterbacks had a higher percentage of catchable passes dropped.
No. Hypothetical $25 per year guaranteed. $10m possible bonus best case. Your answer says it all. You thought that was a per year deal and that’s for 3 seasons. It’s exactly What Brady did
Not if they would or wouldn’t do this or that. Point is These decisions are all about the Coins. Go look at Bradys contracts no wonder why he’s played so long.
While the Patriots did a fantastic job of structuring Brady's contracts it's a myth he actually took less money than other quarterbacks to surround him with better talent.
