Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is reportedly “frustrated” that players arent allowed to run NFL teams.
I know thats a crazy revelation, but its the truth. Yahoo Sports reported the following:
While the relationship between Rodgers and the Packers isnt in total disrepair, two league sources familiar with the quarterbacks mindset described him as both “frustrated” and “emotional” over a lack of communication from the front office prior to some significant decisions this offseason.
The arrogance behind Rodgers being frustrated by management making decisions without consulting him is crazy. Hes a quarterback thats on the wrong side of 30. Is he talented? Yes. Is he one of the best players in the league? Yes. Should he dictating team policy? Absolutely not.
Imagine walking into your boss office tomorrow and complaining about company decisions. Better yet, imagine having it leak in the press instead. Hes not even handling it like a man. Ive long said that Rodgers isnt worth the inevitable headache, and it looks like Im being proven right.
The Packers should drop Rodgers and look for solutions elsewhere.* Thats the obvious direction forward.
*Im definitely saying this with a rational mindset. It has nothing to do with being a Detroit Lions fan.
