I get the gist of what you’re saying, but let’s be real here.
Wilson was never the level of QB that Rodgers has been.
There’s also no scenario where we’re completely bending ourselves over a barrel with Rodgers longterm.
You walk into this thing knowing that you’re probably going to be attached to Rodgers for 2 years, tops.
Not married to him for 4+ years like Russ. And I highly doubt that the compensation will be the same. Everyone is just assuming that it’s going to be two 1st round picks because Peter King suggested it.
But I think #13 and a 2nd next year probably sees him in green and white tomorrow if Rodgers okays it. And I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if it’s less than that at the end of the day.
Look, I realize that a lot of fans want to continue the “build everything through the draft” approach and want to find our QB that way. But let’s be real. This team is right up there with the Bears as historically being the sh*ttiest in the league at attempting that.
It’s also not about how the fans want to do this. People need to put themselves in Douglas and Saleh’s shoes because they’re the ones calling the shots. These dudes pretty much have one foot out the door as it is.
If you were looking to save your job when you have a relatively stacked, young team with a giant hole at QB…you’d have to have sh*t for brains to rely on some dude like Mike White, Gardner Minshew or Baker Mayfield to save you.
Aaron Rodgers is arguably one of the Top 5 QB’s to ever step on a football field and prior to last year, was consistently putting up batsh*t crazy videogame numbers.
You surround him with a Top 5 defense, dudes like Wilson/Moore/Breece and just an average OL…and you’re immediately contending for championships.
