What The Green Bay Packers Should Do
Heres the deal. I already see it with many fans on social media wanting the Packers to win out and have a million other things happen in order to squeak into the playoffs. But…. WHY?
I understand it very clearly, especially as a Dallas Cowboys fan, that if theres hope, latch onto it and believe in something. But, do you actually think your roster is good enough to go through the gauntlet and make it to the Super Bowl?
Or, would you guys benefit more from a higher draft pick knowing you have the late first round pick in the Saints? If I were in charge, I would shut down Aaron Rodgers, Kenny Clark, Devante, and anyone with lingering injuries. Sitting these type of players would almost ensure losing 2 out of the next 3 games. Right now, the cheeseheads sit at 5-7-1. Winning out would give them the record of 8-7-1. Now, to what would need to happen. They would need the Vikings to lose 2 of 3, eagles/panthers/ to lose a game, and the redskins to lose 2 games since they would own the tiebreaker.
If they lost all three games, it would guarantee a pick in the top 10 and with the Saints pick in the back end of the 1st round. Was it just a couple weeks ago that I was hearing your roster isn’t good enough to surround Aaron to win the big game? Why not get a playmaker on defense to put with Jaire Alexander, Blake Martinez, Kenny Clark, etc?
Here are some of the names that could be a Green Bay Packer if they shut the season down and lost out. Rashan Gary. Quinnen Williams. Ed Oliver. Clelin Ferrell. Devin White. Greedy Williams. Josh Allen. Devin Bush. DeAndre Baker. Shall I proceed?
By being able to draft one of them in the front of the draft, it allows you to have flexibility with the Saints pick. You can go get AJ Brown, WR out of Ole Miss, or Deebo Samuel, WR out of FSU to help Aaron restock the weaponry on offense.
Not to mention by avoiding the payment to Clinton-Dix and letting some players walk in the likes of Matthews and Cobb, you might to make a couple splashes in Free Agency. Just some quick names that popped into my head…Tyrann Matheiu, Dante Fowler Jr, or Brandon Graham? But, its nice to say you have options. I finally think this is the year the Packers unload and get talent to surround this team.
As much as I love to see you guys struggle for once for all the shit my friends and family put me through for all the dark days as a Cowboys fan. I want to say, don’t waste Aarons talent.
It starts with the draft. If the Packers were thinking long-term with Aaron Rodgers, they would shut him down and get ready to make a prolific run next year. We will see.
Will Arod win another Super Bowl? Will it be with the Green Bay Packers?
