    Packers ‘drove Aaron Rodgers nuts’ with decision to cut Jake Kumerow
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The above is a headline in the NYPost. Maybe this will push Aaron Rodgers to call out the caste system going on in the NFL. That'd be great.

    Of course I don't know Rodgers but him, Jordy and Randall Cobb were golf buddies. What that goof McCarthy allowed Hundley to do to Jordy's season was a crime, literally 1 target a game, if Adams wasn't open he then went into headless chicken routine. Adams is a clear #1 but giving Jordy UDFA type stats was a career killer.

    I thought for years Rodgers was a paint by numbers SJW but since last year he has at least made it interesting. I don't think he defended Kumerow because he was white he defended him because he was a physical player that could be where Rodgers expected him to be unlike just about everyone beyond Adams. Jake should have been in the running for no less than 4th WR maybe 3rd then higher once the "draft picked" were obviously not better than him.

    Like Bucky said about watching them or not with out Rodgers I am in the not category, I watched six games last year and they were all to see him just dominate those loser teams.

    Excellent point. As Rodgers is FAR more accomplished than Watson or even Wilson. Yet the MSM has no issues with those black quarterbacks wanting input in personnel decisions that directly affect the product on the field.

    However, when Aaron Rodgers gets upset GB management makes dumb decision after dumb decision and then blatantly cuts the player he advocates for... how would you expect him to react?

    Denver can send Bridgewater and some picks to GB for Rodgers. Then Drew Lock can develop behind Rodgers.

    I have seen Rodgers get plenty of respect from ex NFL Players Ryan Clark & Marcus Spears . Rodgers has earned the right to call the shots like very few can! Drafting Jordan Love in the 1st Round was a slap in the face!

    A huge long shot ....Carson Wentz to the Packers and some Draft picks ' . Eagle have extra picks in 22' . Rodgers to the Eagles...they need a long term Starting QB.
    But Rodgers is NOT going to want to go to a 4 -11 - 1 team...never mind SCRATCH that idea!

    The Packers were never the same for me after Jordy Nelson left for the Raiders.

    Think the Colts might have some problems with that trade. Anyways, I hope the Packers rot with their quotablack. Don't seen a promising young white QB to that caste front office.

    Well, that didn't take long:

    Raiders released S Jeff Heath. The Raiders just drafted safeties Trevon Moehrig and Tyree Gillespie in the first four rounds of the draft. They also spend a third-round selection on Divine Deablo, a safety/linebacker hybrid. With a wealth of young talent at the position, they simply didn't have the roster space to hold onto Heath. The veteran safety started five games for Las Vegas last year and broke up five passes. Before joining the Raiders, Heath started 44 games at safety for Dallas from 2017 to 2019. He should have no problem landing a short-term deal with a team in need of some secondary depth.

    Beat me to it by seconds Don.

    Heath has had a pretty remarkable career all things considered. UDFA to starting safety. Sadly that seems to be the way most white DBs now trickle into the league.

    About Rodgers, here’s a quote from him about James Abrederris, a receiver who was on the roster in 2014 and 2015 but rarely saw the field. From December 2015:
    “He can get open,” Rodgers said. “He’s a good route-runner. He needs to be on the field more.”
    Source: https://www.google.com/amp/s/syndic...packers-usage-of-wr-jared-abbrederis.amp.html
    He’s always been good to our guys at receiver. Yes, he’s definitely a SJW to some extent, and definitely not like Brady politically, but he knows the score and isn’t afraid to make a few comments (to the extent he’s allowed to without being “cancelled”). If he were to openly call out the caste system, it would definitely mean kissing goodbye any chance of permanently hosting Jeopardy!, so I doubt he’ll do that. Still, good for him for not being afraid to criticize the team for cutting Jordy, Abrederris, Janis, and now Kumerow. The new-ish GM, Gutekunst, is the problem and he’s cost the team chances at Super Bowls, and pissed off his future Hall of Fame QB with his negligence.

    I thought Mayock was going to do a goo0d job drafting players. He hasn't done that well. I know Gruden has the final say so but Mayock must be influencing him.

    They both weasled their way into there to do the same thing every other coach/ gm does. They should be on the hot seat. Haven't come close to winning their Division or making the Playoffs.

    As for the Rodgers situation I bring up Danny Woodhead being dumped by the Jets solely for the reason he was UDFA and Joe Bell was a 4th rounder and hence would have been a black mark against the GM and his group of flunky idiots. I would guess that the bag of donuts coaches on the Packers staff denigrated Kumerow for the drafted players even thought the drafted players are the usual under wear olympic style who made the occasional splash play that impressed the gym coach morons. So why would the donut munchers go against the guy who hired them and make him look like the usual fail, nope. The movie "Draft Day" highlighted this type of moron exceptionally well, only the strength coach was worth a damn.

    So Aaron Rodgers a mature man with a higher IQ than the flunkies has to be tired of being second fiddle to people whose lips move when approaching a stop sign. If you want a clue as to how sad football coaches can be, years ago when Gruden was a mouth on TV one of the rags did a story about him renting a strip mall store for a morning donut gathering for out of work football coaches that would show up at his house at all times of the day till his wife put a stop to it.

    But then again I could not coach football players or run a team, these are just observations of institutional fail on my part, the pattern is for hucksters to play the Cuck, Caste and Cashout game on the even dumber fans, works for them.

    It is laughable how horrible many coaches truly are.
    Amazing how they keep their jobs.

    Just wait until the "affirmative action" coaches start coaching. Then you'll really see horrible.

    The Bears just made their black safeties coach, Sean Desai, their defensive coordinator despite showing no qualifications to be a DC. Under his tutelage the Bears' safety play went from one of the best to one of the worst. He's never been a coordinator at any level.

    Football teams have a hard time finding qualified black coaches because there aren't that many out there. It's the same with corporate America. Because of political pressure teams are going to hire unqualified black coaches just as the Bears did.

    One of the 49ers' UDFA acquisitions from 2020, WR Chris Finke is reportedly signing with the Kansas City Chiefs. It's a crowded receiving corps, but perhaps he can start out as a special teams ace and eventually work his way into the starting rotation. Hill, Hardman, and Robinson are the likely starters, but if one of them gets hurt, there's nobody of note backing them up.

    Mayock's 1st round picks have been reaches - Ferrell was huge reach, I believe the CB Arnette is on thin ice, Jacobs was a good pick when looking at his productivity and Abrams has been injured. The Leatherwood pick this year sounds like another Ferrell like reach.

    "Special teams" I have an example, back when McCarthy brought something to the table and I think he did to a point, in the Pack's SB year he brought in a guy a low rounder WR Brett Swain to be the 6th and cut the other 6th receiver a buddy of the other 4 black WR on the squad. The black guy was tall and had one play he could jump for the ball but he did not play special teams so McCarthy cut him and replaced him with a white WR specifically because he could play coverage man.

    Two things, one Donald Driver expressed a little bit of displeasure at that move and second if you are a white WR in the low rounds like most are you better know how to beat an open field block and how to tackle.

    As for Brett Swain he produced on special teams, saw the field in the SB had one target, clearly dropped it and next year did the bounce into obscurity. Hopefully a young white man has an over priced gaudy as hell ring to show for it.

    This guy is a total clown. I for one am enjoying the Rodgers - Packers duel. Black qbs like Watson and Murray were whining about their involvement in personnel decisions and neither was criticized.

    I think one of the reasons there is so much animosity toward Rodgers is that the drafting of a black quarterback in the first round is probably the main factor in his disgruntlement. Suggesting that drafting a black quarterback was a mistake is not allowed so the blame is placed on Rodgers.

    The mainstream media is seeking to place the blame on the Packers cutting Kumerow as the main cause. This diverts attention from what has to be the main cause, drafting a black quarterback in the first instead of getting help for a Super Bowl run.

    The Saints do use a FB too. Hopefully he wins the job and they use him a little more creatively than as a battering ram.
