On the cusp of the Superbowl isn’t cutting it anymore.
There are rumblings out of Titletown that friction exists between Thompson and McCarthy. And while it seems obvious … Where there is smoke there is fire.
The clock is ticking on Aaron Rodgers career. His hard work and patience has — to some extent — been taken advantage of by Thompson. For the past few seasons, while the team has been close to going back to the big game, it has come up short. So what or who exactly is to blame?
Thus the only effort that has not truly been made to put them over the top — Free Agency: Must be addressed this off season. Hello Mr. Thompson, time to see if it works because doing the same thing (as well all know) is insanity.
If a true effort in free agency isn’t made it could be the end of the Thompson Era and the slow downward spiral of the Rodgers era as well.
Certainly such negative thoughts are not “The Packer Way” but logic must have a voice and the voice is saying: When you’ve dominated your division and conference for this long, eventually things break down and you must begin a new.
Nothing great lasts forever.
One more season may write the final chapter. We will see.
