Aaron Rodgers to retire?

That's what happens when you have Stockholders. Profits over glory.

Packers "stockholders" are that in name only...they do not, nor have they ever shared in any "profits".

In fact, the franchise operates under a not-for-profit corporate structure and is the only NFL for which annual financial statements/information is available to the general public...

Aaron Rodgers, and Devante Adams say hi. Green Bays reputation has taken a big hit lately. They've had Rodger his whole career. And won 1 SB. I wouldn't say they were ever the gold standard.

The Packers compete year in and year out. They have a total of four losing seasons since we entered the league. We have a total of seven winning seasons in that same timeframe. I wouldn't say they're the absolute gold standard either, but they're certainly one of the better ran teams in the league. 

Since 1995 (26 seasons):

Packers = 19 playoffs appearances, 38 playoff games, 21 playoff game wins, 2 Super Bowl titles.

Panthers = 8 playoff appearances, 17 playoff games, 9 playoff game wins, 0 Super Bowl titles.

This has to be the dumbest Huddle post of 2021 to date. Congrats on that milestone.

Not that this clown ever showed much inclination towards knowing much about the NFL but....wow. Impressive.

How many teams have won 2 or more Super Bowls in last 30 years?

It's like 8-9 teams, right?

Not sure but it's certainly not something to sneeze at!!

In the last 30 years only 3 teams have won more than 2 Super Bowls and they are:

Patriots (6), Cowboys (3), Broncos (3).

In that same time frame 5 other teams have won 2 Super Bowl titles and they are:

Packers (2), Steelers (2), Giants(2*), Buc's (2), Ravens (2).

The 30 games are rounded out with 8 teams who won a solo title and they are:

Eagles, Redskins, Seahawks, Rams, Saints, 49ers, Chiefs, Colts.

*Giants would have 3 if the time-frame were expanded to 31-years.

Two (2) seems like pretty goof company to me...

Worked for Gronk. Took a year off. Came back and won a Ring.

Rodgers will do the same. Maybe not the ring, but he’ll play for another team next season.

Good stuff. Funny how people rag on one of, if not the most loyal fan bases  in football.  Something Charlotte doesn’t have.

If you are trashing the history of the Packers or their success, and you AREN'T a division rival....you are just a plain dumbass. 

I would kill to have the current or historic success that Green Bay has had.

If only….

I wouldn't have wanted Harbaugh. He's far better suited to college coaching (though you wouldn't know it right now). 

Riddick? Is he really that good or is he another Jon Gruden like guy with a know it all image because he's got no accountability? I honestly don't know. 

And Fields? Well, we know where that stands.

I think Harbaugh did better in the NFL personally. He took that Niners team on 3 great playoff runs and made their QBs look pretty great. He had an 8-8 record his last year, but it was known all year he was on his way out. Kind of hard to get players to buy in to a coach who is already on his way out. So he had his team in the NFC championship his first 3 years with a Super Bowl appearance in there and 500 his last year on his way out. I would love to see what he could do with a QB like Fields. Don’t get me wrong, I like Rhule/Fitts and think the team is trending in the right direction. Jim and Fields would have just been a dream scenario for me.

    • Save this for the next time we play the Browns.
    • Likely coming from the same place that the outrageous rumors of USC looking at coaches  for the HC job that they would never in a million years look at, or the coaches that would absolutely hate SoCal/L.A. fishbowl.
    • He and Greenberg loved Sam as a person.  I know everyone focuses on QB Darnold, but we just love the fact that he is such a fine young man.  During the Draft they were talking about his spotless and genuine character.  I know it’s of little importance here, most love the brash, strutting bravado, but I agree with his mama, she’s prouder of the man, then the football player. “Southern California quarterback Sam Darnold backed up all of the hype about him being an exceptional leader and teammate Thursday. Darnold rushed back to Los Angeles from his pre-draft visit Wednesday at Browns headquarters in Berea so he could throw to running back Ronald Jones during his makeup pro day at USC. Jones and wide receiver Deontay Burnett worked out because hamstring injuries prevented them from fully participating in the Trojans’ pro day last month. Former Washington and Utah quarterback Troy Williams threw to Burnett. USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin told the Beacon Journal/Ohio.com that Darnold surprisingly appeared on campus after Jones summoned him on short notice. Widely considered the favorite to be drafted first overall by the Browns on April 26, Darnold had already turned in an impressive throwing session March 21 during USC’s original pro day with Cleveland’s team brass in attendance, but that didn’t stop him from helping Jones. “When you talk about what kind of guy he is, who does that when you have everything to lose and nothing to gain by doing that?” Martin, who also coaches USC’s receivers, said Thursday during a phone interview. “He had a teammate call him out of the blue. It wasn’t something that was planned. “He gets a call yesterday, and he drops everything else. [Darnold said], ‘Yes, I’ll be there for you, man,’ and gets on an airplane, lands in L.A. this morning, comes over at like 6:30 in the morning and throws for Ronald Jones. I mean, it’s crazy. And everyone’s like, ‘What, Sam?’ No one expected him to be here, and he’s here because he said, ‘Hey, man, my teammate called. He needed me.’ So he came. That’s unbelievable.” Jones told L.A. reporters Darnold switched his flight back from Cleveland to ensure he would be at USC on time. “He’s always been the man,” Jones said. Martin said he wasn’t sure why the arrangements for Darnold to participate weren’t set until the last minute, “but it’s a credit to Sam, how unselfish he is and the type of teammate he is.”
