    So wait -- why is Rodgers still there?

    I know he's one of the best, but still. Sounds toxic af.

    That was a really interesting read. And it's not like it was a hit piece, because the guy went out of his way to lay out the defense of everyone involved. The funny thing to me about it is Rodgers basically comes across as Michael Jordan in this piece from a personality standpoint, and people deify Jordan for all those traits because his teams won all those titles.

    Yeah, that was the easy comparison after reading. Ultra-sensitive and emotional, surrounds himself with lackies that don't question him, completely lacking in self-awareness/perception. In fairness, Mike McCarthy is, and always was, just the worst. His 'offense' was just crap and he should have been ritually murdered after those field goals on 4th and goal from the 1 against Seattle. Should have won that game, and the Super Bowl that year, and should have been fired right then. I get having bitterness at having to deal with that buffoon.

    Will be interesting to see if Rodgers can adapt, history, with that personality type, says no. I'm a huge Rodgers fan, but last year was ugly and he was as big a cause as anyone.

    All that piece was missing to cement the Rodgers/Jordan personality comp was Rodgers punching Jeff Janis.

    One thing I was surprised at in the piece was how much he detailed Ted Thompson's decline. Its been hinted at and some have suggested that the Packers have ordered that to be off limits. Hell, not even Bob McGinn has gone there.

    Perhaps Dunne knows he's not going to get credentials at Lambeau anymore and just kept going.

    As a Packers fan it was more harsh toward Rodgers than MM. The part about him telling receivers to run different routes and then they get chewed out by the coaches for running the wrong route is troubling. How are they supposed to develop in that setting?

    Now, they have a good record of developing receivers with him from Adams going back. So I tend to think it's either exaggerated or a new phenomenon.

    Disagree with this. They painted the picture that McCarthy considers himself an offensive guru whose offense actually sucks and only worked because of Rodgers. And, by the way, McCarthy quit on the team to the point that it's widely believed that he skipped team meetings to get massages.

    The Rodgers stuff is basically "he's an asshole who is awesome at football, but over the years the asshole part has gotten in the way of the football part more and more because he had no respect for his coach, who was stupid."

    The uniforms would be a lot better if they had actual fucking Jets on them.

    Both of them are really poor leaders, that was a point they drove home multiple times. It’s resulted in different problems for the organization they each are responsible for

    Agreed, but the Rodgers stuff is "he's a great QB who isn't a great leader." The McCarthy stuff is "you probably don't ever want him coaching your football team." Not saying it isn't fair, but in terms of "harshness," I think the McCarthy stuff is harsher because no one can deny the greatness of Rodgers as a player.

    I guess when I said it was worse I meant coming from a Packers fan that there's still that baggage we have to deal with. In other words, not all of the problems left with McCarthy getting fired.

    I seriously question how it's going to work with LeFleur saying he doesn't want to give the QB free reign to audible at the line. Supposedly his play calls all have options but he doesn't like straying from those options at the line.

    I get that part in terms of a Packers fan. Anything about Rodgers in that story would be harsher than all of the stuff about McCarthy in that way.

    His counting stats might have been better in drastically more opportunities but pretty sure his catch rate and passer rating when targeted plummeted significantly
