The Green Bay Packers are eliminated from the playoffs. Those words are still stinging for the fan base.
Almost as soon as Robbie Gould’s kick hit the netting at the end of regulation on Saturday night to eliminate the Packers from the playoffs and send the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game, you could hear a pin drop inside Lambeau Stadium from the fans that were rocking Green
One fan took it further and threw an epic tantrum as a glass got tossed and a wall got kicked that left a shoe-sized hole in it.
Things may only be getting worse for Packers fans depending on what happens this offseason.
There’s no hiding that Rodgers may have played his last game as a member of the Packers, the team that selected him in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft.
“I’m gonna take some time and have conversations with the folks around here, and then take some time away and make a decision — obviously before free agency.” Rodgers said postgame. “… It’s fresh right now. It’s a little shocking for sure. Was hoping to have a nice week after the NFC Championship to enjoy the lead up [to the Super Bowl] and start contemplating some things, so I haven’t even let the moment sink in yet.”
Contractually, Rodgers is still under the Packers’ control through next season, but if he decides he wants to play elsewhere the team could look to trade him.
Rodgers noted that he still feels like he can play at an elite level, which does factor into his thought process when mulling potential retirement from the NFL. It just remains to be seen where he would like to play in 2022.
