According to Andrew Siciliano, Rodgers told the media his “general reaction at first was surprise, like many people. Not going to say I was thrilled by the pick.”

He further added that finishing his career with the Packers is out of his “control,” but the idea of being in Green Bay was “important.”

Are we all enjoying this chaos? Are we all enjoying this carnage? I sure as hell know I am. I’m loving the fact Aaron Rodgers has to address the media about draft picks.

Burn, baby, burn! Embrace the carnage! Burn it all down in Green Bay.

How will this all end? Rodgers will start for at least two more years, eventually get pushed out of Green Bay and then it’ll be time for Love to take over.

However, the nonstop chatter won’t end anytime soon. That much I can promise you. Until Love starts, there will always be talk about when he’ll take over.

You just hate to see it happen to such a great organization!
