This game is about shaping one’s path

I’ve spent a day watching my son qualify the players, analyzing drills with my father-in-law (with Aaron Rodgers in attendance), soaking up the sun, seeing the new rookies in action, and yes, interviewing the one and only Weston Hodkiewicz. It is only June. What a good time to be alive!

This was the highlight of my day-no, weekly-no, entire Offseason programme.

What is the general mood in this small camp? Excitement? fear? interest?

anticipation. The Packers have lost some key players this season but they seem to have all the tools needed to pursue the championship.

I like the Article on Amary Rodgers. 4% body fat? Yes, me too…maybe with another number thrown in front of “4.” It amazes me how these guys maintain their bodies in these kind of conditions. It really is a year-round effort. Regarding Coach Vrable’s comment, I would half expect you to add in parentheses “…that’s nice.” With fans expecting more aircraft sweeps and better reception numbers for him, at the end of the year, do you see Rodgers’ contributions being more on offense or special teams?

I loved Rodgers’ pick a year ago because he seemed like the perfect receiver for this offense – a slot option that could play outside of the jet-settings. On this vacation, Rodgers tapped into his nourishment and developed a steadier understanding of the rules of the game, and it shows in practice. Rodgers had one of the best moments captured on the offseason program on Wednesday when he dived in to get a touchdown pass from Jordan Love through the red. He also converted the third goal and 10 with a cross from 15 yards into the top spot for two minutes. I think you’ll be seeing more of Amari’s work this summer.

Excellent article, Wes, regarding Wednesday’s exercise – brief and precise. It’s refreshing to have content like this with the current state of exciting sports reporting. In terms of Aaron Rodgers saying he makes a yearly decision about retirement, I find it hard to believe he would sign a four-year deal to suspend the cleats after just one season. I also find it hard to believe that he will play four more seasons. ideas? Is there a roof structure that indicates anything in particular?

To paraphrase Pablo Myers, it’s the story I’m most proud of. Rodgers’ contract was structured in this way for two reasons. First, he helped distribute his signing bonus and provide Packers players with some much needed relief in 2022. Second, he created a “pay-as-you-go” system for Rodgers if he chose to play in 2023 and beyond. Rodgers said he “definitely” plans to end his career with the Packers and that the contract reflects that commitment.

Hi Wes, in yesterday’s excellent Spoof article (“Aaron Rodgers back in the spotlight In the Packers minicamp”), he quoted augmented reality saying that expectations for novice WRs should be “reasonable.” Do you think this is an evolution/adaptation of earlier AR expectations for WRs who made mistakes (eg bad track run, failure to execution, etc.), and his usually fiery response?

To some extent maybe, but I think Rodgers was mostly talking about the gradual transition of potential into production. You’ll see deposits made in this knowledge bank throughout the year – just like Davante Adams, Marquis Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cope as starters. Personally, I loved the way we used that photo of Rodgers talking with Samori Toure for the Spoff story. I saw that moment live after Tori ran a road on air and felt like he totally captured Rodgers at this point in his career – educating youngsters about what he needs, while relying on veterans to lead the way.
