Well, the Packers have shown in the past they can't play even .500 ball w/o Rodgers. Of course, those teams had lousy Ds. I think the team can win 10 games with a truly elite D, some additions to the offense as I noted, and average to above average QB play. That sounds good but hasn't been tested. If Rodgers does move on, we'll find out. (When I referenced trading Adams, it was in a tag and trade scenario.)The Super Bowl window closes immediately if the Packers decide to trade Rodgers. In my opinion the team needs to take advantage of their HOF quarterback as long as possible and then take the dead money hit in the season after moving on from him.
There's no guarantee the Packers will be able to reload once they don't have an elite QB anymore, not even with a ton pf draft capital.
In my opinion the Packers won't get anywhere close to winning 10 games without Rodgers next season.
As a side note, with Adams set to become a free agent the team won't be able to trade him at this point.
The Packers would need to completely rebuild the roster if they move on from Rodgers this offseason. It doesn't make any sense to spend up to the cap if there's no chance of winning the Super Bowl in 2022.
I don't disagree with riding Rodgers as long as possible. It may be more logical for the l.t health of the team to trade him, but let's face it, this is a win now league. Rodgers gives them the best chance.
