Aaron Rodgers kept Jordan Love in the loop on Rodgers' status during the offseason

  Aaron Rodgers kept Jordan Love in the loop on Rodgers' status during the offseason Aaron Rodgers wants to prevent Jordan Love from going through what Rodgers experienced his first couple years in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers. With Rodgers' status in limbo all offseason, Rodgers reached out to Love to keep him in the loop on Rodgers' situation, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN. When he entered the league, Brett Favre was still putting up excellent numbers with the Packers. Favre stuck around with the team longer than expected. He even retired and then unretired over the course of an offseason, which left Rodgers in a tough spot. Rodgers didn't want Love to experience the same thing with Rodgers' status in limbo, according to ESPN.

Plenty of you only spend time visiting outlets like this when not on your own personal time. Which is fine with me, as long as you don’t do it so much that you end up having 168 hours per week of personal time.

So now that you’re back at work, you may be curious about everything that happened on Friday afternoon, starting with the memorable Aaron Rodgers stream-of-consciousness in which he took an anti-vaccine position, insisted he’s not anti-vaxx, claimed he never agreed to rules that his union accepted on his behalf, blamed the media, the “woke mob,”and “cancel culture” for his decision to not be as candid as he should have been about his unvaccinated status, clumsily quoted MLK to justify his decision to ignore the rules, and more.

Where will Aaron Rodgers play in 2022? Three teams that make the most sense for Packers QB

  Where will Aaron Rodgers play in 2022? Three teams that make the most sense for Packers QB Rodgers wanted out before the start of the 2021 season, and he could potentially want out again following it. Here's where he might play come 2022.After an offseason of rumors, reports and drama, the Packers quarterback could be eyeing an exit from Green Bay this offseason, setting the stage for a quarterback-needy team to trade for one of the league's best.

Some have blamed us for posting too many articles on the subject. If you had access to our traffic numbers, which can be tracked in real time, you’d say we didn’t have enough. It’s a compelling story, with plenty of questions about what has transpired, and plenty more about what’s to come.

In the event, then, that you missed any, some, or all of it, here are the links to the various, specific topics that flowed directly or indirectly from the stunning decision by Rodgers to swap two days of “deafening silence” (as Peter King described it on Friday morning’s PFT Live) for 45 minutes of TMI.

Rodgers insisted he didn’t lie (he did) on August 26 when he responded to the direct question of “are you vaccinated” with “yeah, I’ve been immunized,” and he cited a fear of the “woke mob” and “cancel culture” as his justification for not telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. (He also claimed the media has told “blatant lies” about him. The only thing anyone said about Rodgers is that he blatantly lied, however.)

Pat McAfee provided Aaron Rodgers with the perfect, or worst, platform, depending on how you see it

  Pat McAfee provided Aaron Rodgers with the perfect, or worst, platform, depending on how you see it Short of getting a one-on-one interview with the Texas assistant coach’s girlfriend’s pet monkey that turned Twitter upside down for a night, there was probably no bigger interview “get” this week than Aaron Rodgers. As soon as the news started breaking on Wednesday that not only had the Green Bay Packers quarterback tested positive for Read more The post Pat McAfee provided Aaron Rodgers with the perfect, or worst, platform, depending on how you see it appeared first on Awful Announcing.

Rodgers claimed that, during the process of trying to get an exemption from the vaccination requirement based on a homeopathic treatment, an NFL doctor told him it’s impossible for a vaccinated person to catch or spread COVID; the NFL went on the record to say this didn’t happen.

After Rodgers was diagnosed with COVID, he consulted with noted non-physician Joe Rogan about treatment options.

Rodgers said he didn’t agree to any of the applicable COVID protocols or sign a piece of paper that surrendered his rights; however, his union did it for him.

The August 26 “yeah, I’ve been immunized” press conference featured a follow-up question that presumed Rodgers is vaccinated; in answering it, he didn’t correct the reporter.

Prevea Health abruptly ended its nine-year partnership with Rodgers on Saturday.

Why Aaron Rodgers Could Be Fined Due to His Behavior As an Unvaccinated Player

  Why Aaron Rodgers Could Be Fined Due to His Behavior As an Unvaccinated Player He wasn't wearing a mask at press conferences. View the original article to see embedded media.Aaron Rodgers could be facing fines due to some of his behavior while being unvaccinated for COVID-19, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport. Rodgers confirmed his unvaccinated status while appearing on The Pat McAfee Show on Friday.The quarterback discussed the NFL and NFLPA's COVID-19 protocols at length with McAfee. Rodgers claimed "a lot of the protocols aren't based on science at all," and specifically took issue with having to be masked at press conferences as an unvaccinated player.

State Farm is mum about its relationship with Rodgers.

It’s not just trolls and hot-take artists (like me) who are criticizing Rodgers; a quartet of Hall of Famers went after him on Sunday, with Terry Bradshaw (who stars in the newest State Farm commercial) putting it bluntly: “You lied to everyone.”

The NFL is investigating Rodgers for violating COVID protocols and the Packers for not enforcing those protocols, but for only fines are on the table for any violations that already have occurred; the league is focusing on whether Rodgers wore a mask as required in the building, along with his attendance at the team’s Halloween part.

When Rodgers returns, he won’t be subject to daily testing requirements or “close contact” rules until two days after the NFC Championship; however, all mask requirements will continue to apply.

Rodgers can be suspended for COVID protocol violations that occur after he returns, and the Packers could eventually lose a draft pick for recurring failures to enforce the rules, if Rodgers keeps breaking them.

LaFleur said Rodgers will “absolutely” start in Week 10, if he’s cleared to return to the team as of Saturday, the first day that he can return.

That should get you up to speed. Unless and until Rodgers decides to call Pat McAfee and A.J. Hawk and spew another 45 minutes of largely uninterrupted BS that will then need to be fully analyzed and dissected.

NFL chief medical officer pushes back on Aaron Rodgers' claim that some COVID-19 protocols are 'not based in science' .
Allen Sills said the NFL's COVID-19 protocols are "always based on science" despite Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' claim to the contrary.“We've been very consistent,” Sills told reporters during a conference call on Wednesday. “First of all, these are things that we decided collectively with the players association (NFLPA). They're always based on science. The science that at best we understand for public health, but also our own data. We are constantly looking at our own data in every way possible, to see where we might still be vulnerable and what parts of our protocols we think are particularly effective.
