Seems like this will continue to be a topic for the next few months ....

Here's the latest eyebrow-raising development .... Jets hire Nathanial Hackett as Offensive Coordinator

I would bet not.

He had his worst (just barely) statistical year as a starter.
But people also overlook that he played with a pretty serious throwing had injury all season.

But - it's nice that if the Packers trade him, his value is the lowest it's been for quite a while.

I'm way more invested in this Rodgers nonsense than I should be. I really want to know how this all turns out.

The expectations in Packerland of what they are going to get for 12 is staggering (i.e. reading a GB fan twitter thread regarding the Jets: multiple firsts plus Sauce Gardner).

I think they are a year too late in moving him. And the Russell Wilson lesson is out there for clubs as well. As Belichek famously said, always better to move a guy a year too early than a year too late.

I hope they don't trade him so our young D can run up their sack stats on his sebaceous ass this fall.

But its looking like the Jets now that Hackett is there. Oh well.
No matter how you try to box him in, whatever realistic scenario you propose to build around him is going to include the fashion aspect(s) of Caleb's dramatic personality.

OMG, that's crazy!

But, unfortunately, totally expected...

I think he'll go to the Jets. A 1st and 3rd this year, a 2nd (maybe conditional) next.

Maybe he can get into show business - on the side - with that location.

I thought he was 38. He's 40. Shouldn't make a big difference but it seems to. Also, he may only play 1 more tear, which affects what a team will give up for him.

I can't imagine the Jets giving up a big haul for a year or two of Rodgers, coming off a terrible year where he doesn't really appear to be 'all in' on football anymore.

Yeah, Aaron Rodgers doesnt skip all offseason programs and instead opts to build chemistry with his incredibly young wr corps (especially in light of Kalyn Kahler's excellent article on his usage of hand signals https://theathletic.com/4002003/2022/12 ... s-rookies/) and that team absolutely wins 1-2 more games minimum and makes the playoffs. You cant just shrug that shit off.
Dude started listening to to people saying he was "interesting" because he was listening to the joe rogan and decided his farts never smelled better. S-tier midlife crisis imo.

Hopefully the Pickers are stuck with him so Bears can cream his ass with our nasty '23 defense.

(and help intensify the bidding for the first pick, etc etc)

So Davante Adams has been putting the full court press on Raiders management to bring in Erin, said he'd love to reunite with him. Would the Raiders give up the #7 pick as part of a trade package?

I agree. Although the thought of "Bears" creaming someone's ass is a little off putting to me personally. :?

So he added a stray "c." Typos happen.

Wait-
So much road and so few places, so much friendliness and so little intimacy, so much flavour and so little taste.

I can attest to this on a smaller scale.

I’m into floating tanks where I sit in total darkness for an hour or longer.

No music. Nothing. Totally naked. Complete darkness. No I’m not high or under the influence of anything at all.

I’ve had visions in there which usually take the form of a purple dragon communicating with me.

One time we stood on the shores of an orange creamsicle lava lake underground and just talked about stuff. Another time we toured the solar system and I just watched Jupiter rotate in its orbit.

Sensory deprivation is something I would consider. Solitary confinement, not so much.

I might admit to self-administered sensory overload in the '70s and early '80s but no deprivation. I'd try a short one.

Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, is no stranger to right-wing talking points. He’s a proud anti-vaxxer and has railed against the “woke mob” coming to “cancel” him, all while insisting he’s not a conspiracy theorist — only a “free thinker.”

Rodgers has apparently been thinking freely about the spate of high-altitude objects the U.S. has downed over the past week, too. The four-time NFL MVP floated on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday that the hubbub surrounding the UFOs is a manufactured ploy to distract the public.

t’s interesting timing on everything,” Rodgers said. “There’s a lot of other things going on in the world.”

McAfee prodded Rodgers for more. Rodgers obliged him, sarcastically claiming the government would never try to misdirect the nation’s attention. McAfee mentioned the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. “There’s some wild shit going on right now, Aaron,” he said.

Rodgers agreed. “Did you hear about the Epstein client list about to be released?” he said. “There’s some files that have some names on them that might be getting released pretty soon. [Ghislaine] Maxwell was the only person ever convicted of trafficking and nobody who was involved in the trafficking ever went to jail. Nothing to see here.”
