The Packers Should Clearly Piss Aaron Rodgers Off More Often

The Big Lead

There was much criticism levied towards the Green Bay Packers for their strategy during the 2020 NFL Draft. Green Bay traded up in the first round to draft a project of a quarterback after getting all the way to the NFC Championship Game. They took a running back in the second round despite boasting one of the better run games in the NFL last year between Aaron Jones and Jamal Williams, going against the grain in regards to how valuable running backs are in the modern offense. 

All in all, it seemed like a bad offseason for a team still starting one of the best quarterbacks ever in Aaron Rodgers. Yet the Packers came out in Week 1 and wiped the damn floor with the Minnesota Vikings with no trouble whatsoever. This was almost entirely due to the play of that same Rodgers, who played as well as he ever had and made his usual array of jaw-dropping throws that nobody else in the NFL this side of Patrick Mahomes could even think about attempting, much less completing. 

I mean, look at this. Good god, man.

D’Andre Swift drops game-winning touchdown pass for Lions

Twitter erupts after Saints, Alvin Kamara reach $75M deal

USA Today

Is the salary cap real? Maybe not in the sense most NFL fans think of it. Certainly not in the context of what it means to the New Orleans Saints, who view it as a problem worth solving rather than a box to work within.

That was proven when they reached an agreement with running back Alvin Kamara on a five-year, $75 million contract extension.
