That's also a possibility.I think that if you look at a situation like Brady and Belichick, those guys are obsessed with figuring out how to win. And they worked together. It was a collaboration. No days off. I think Rodgers is not in this vein. He is an amazing talent, one of the best to ever play quarterback. Super confident and believes in himself to get the job done. But he's got a lot going on outside of football. And I think he expects the packers to just take care of things the way that he wants when it comes to front office stuff and coaching strategies and what not. There's not a lot of communication there until after things are done. He doesn't get down amd dirty in these matters and make the packers winning his whole focus. Which is why this disconnect is happening I think.
That said, there's also a lot of weird off-field stuff about Rodgers that we know, about his being estranged from his family, about some drama while he was dating Olivia Munn - I'm not saying these are related to his relationship issues with the Packers, but I'm also not not saying it.
Could just be he's a weird dude who doesn't get along with people. I don't know this, but it's just another thing to consider while evaluating why all this went south in a hurry for the Packers.
To be clear, I am not anti-Rodgers, and I am not anti-Packers. Something went wrong there - and I'm sure there's plenty of blame to go around. I just have a hard time seeing this as 100% on Rodgers or 100% on the Packers front office. We only have a few details to go on, and it seems like the Packers & ARod could have handled things much differently.
And as others suggested, it might still be a cluster if they had regardless.
What a mess.
