You gotta love how Max has basically agreed to take a backseat to Stephen A. On this show... it’s like he knows he is the Pippen in this duo, and has accepted it!

“You don’t want to work for people who tell you to shut up and do your job.” Have these two ever worked a 9-5 job? Max saying Rodgers needs a $165m deal and he’s 38 on his way out? Lol. This discussion was wild.

stephen a has ZERO idea. they listen to rodgers. they have personnel in his town for weeks on end. two just got back. what do you think is happening when they send personnel to your town? they are listening and trying to appease. people just assume the front office isnt listening because of the stigma around front offices. and part of this is aarons legacy. do you think he wants the next guy to come in after 4 years of good training like he did and then do great? nooo of course not. favre did not look as good as he did after aaron started killing it. it was clear favre was not the guy carrying the team. aaron knows his legacy would not be as great if this happens. and he does not want jordan love to succeed. the packers have stayed trying to appease rodgers. spending alot of time with him. idk why people are saying this bs about not listening to him

Rodgers is being a cry baby! He is getting old and his way of playing will not allow hjm to go as long as Brady! So GB drafts another QB, Rodgers was not being replaced! Let him go some other place and start over. Will not go well!!! He is blowing it!!! He is not Brady and thats what this is all about!!

I'm a big Packers fan but Rodgers is a Diva. First he couldn't handle Mike McCarthy. The Packers got rid of McCarthy because of Rogers. Now another member of management upset him and he wants the GM fired. Rogers, pull up your big boy pants and play football. You're making $30 million per year.

Rodgers has interpersonal relationship issues. He does with his family and the Packers. To assume that the Packers take the, " we pay you work" attitude and not see that Rodgers may for years been an abrasive personality toward management is likely naïve

I would have A-A-ron Rodgers go play for The New York ????????????? Knicks. You wanna Know Why he can pass the ball great and he can assist to the other 4 Guys. I bet he would be great for the Knicks. If I was him, I would play for the Knicks get that NBA Ring with the Knicks. Aaron Rodgers going to the Knicks. Serious why not. I would Retire go to the Knicks get a contract get in the line up. Shoot while your at it ask The Colorado Rockies to play in MLB All-Star Game. Do the Home run Derby because he was at the Kentucky Derby not a coincidence. The play in the All star game and then come back to Play football and come out of retirement and then win a Superbowl. Then really retire and then host jeopardy. NBA TItle WitH thE knIcKs, home run derby title, Superbowl title. Jump on a Horse and win the Preakness ? To soon for that. But, imagine all the possibilities 2021-2022 Aaron Rodgers became a Champion at EVERYTHING. Not necessarily The Knicks but an NBA team that is going to the NBA Finals 4 Show. Like the Knicks

Russel Wilson goes public about the issues and what he wants and needs and his front office does it for him. Mahomes loses the Super Bowl and the chiefs fixed the weakest point to why they lost. The packers don’t give no f*** about Rodgers the past few years. Football fans don’t see that??

Quite frankly we don’t know exactly what’s going on because Aaron Rodgers hasn’t spoken out yet. But if he wants out because he’s upset that the Packers drafted a quarterback to replace him then he sure is a thin skinned baby. What do you expect the organization to do? He’ll be 37 this year. Just because Tom Brady can play that long doesn’t mean that Aaron Rodgers can. I support the Green Bay Packers and the moves they’ve made. Just another reason you should be a team fan not a player fan. Players consider it a business and don’t care about the fans. They cash checks we don’t.

Brett Favre had been talking about retirement when they drafted Rodgers, while Rodgers talks about playing into his 40's. Rodgers was considered a possible number 1 overall pick and fell to the Packers. Love was widely considered a round 2 value and the Packers traded up to get him in the first. Vastly different situations.

Arron Rogers doesn't get respect because he himself has no respect. Stephen A.Smith needs to read between those lines. There is definitely a problem over in Green Bay. Might it be Stephen A. Smith's baaaaad man that might be the problem. Maybe he is a difficult person to get along with when he's not getting his way. I know his football play is that way. The boy gets sacked and roughed up a couple times in a game and all of a sudden he can't throw the football anymore.
