The Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers saga might finally be coming to an end. But Stephen A Smith will be stupid to be moving on from legendary QB.
The Green Bay Packers have a ton of holes to address heading into 2022, and Aaron Rodgers is just one of them. All-Pro wideout Davante Adams is set to hit free agency, the team is almost $40M over the salary cap and it would be surprising if Jordan Love did not start expecting more playing time.
38-year-old Aaron Rodgers had a pretty remarkable season himself. He ended the season ranked first in the NFL in touchdown percentage (7.0), interception percentage (0.8), passer rating (111.9), QBR (68.8) and adjusted net yards per attempt (8.0). He led the league in all the same categories last season during his MVP season.
Over the final seven games of 2021, Rodgers completed 72.0 percent of his passes, threw 20 touchdown passes without an interception and produced a passer rating of 124.4. His seven-game streak with two or more touchdown passes and zero interceptions is the second-longest in NFL history.
Another MVP season for our guy Aaron Rodgers. 🤌

So when the idea of the Packers voluntarily moving on from Aaron Rodgers was presented, Stephen A Smith was furious.
Stephen A Smith blasted the idea of the Packers moving on from Aaron Rodgers.
Stephen A Smith had a lot to say about the Packers and Rodgers’ future.
“In terms of the Green Bay Packers moving on, hell no, you’d be stupid to do that. If you made that call as an organization to move on from Aaron Rodgers, where do you go, with Jordan Love? 19 for 34, 190 yards and an interception against Kansas City in his lone game as a starter this year? We saw what he did and how he went to bed against Detroit in the second half of the season finale.”
“He has not been that impressive. We have serious questions as to whether or not he is ready. We see no evidence of that whatsoever. So what direction are you going to go in if you lose somebody like Aaron Rogers?”
Rodgers might be leaving Green Bay after getting back-to-back MVP’s. So it should be interesting to see how the future pans out for both Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
