    Oh dang. I think I like what the Packers got more. Obviously getting Rodgers is a big deal so Chargers don't lose, but Pack seems like a bigger winner. Adams and Allen are a nice WR combo and defense is improved.

    Yeah, I agree. Rodgers last year was, in some ways, better than Rivers, but also performed worse in others. At the end of this thing, I'm probably not grading the team different from Rodgers being there, versus Rivers being there in all honesty.

    Love for the Packers. This is a game changer for them. Wow. Itís not like this was Matt Schaub for Rodgers. Rivers is worse but the gap isnít huge.

    Yea this is a big win for the Packers imo. Theyíre legit contenders now.
    Would you rather have your local WNBA team win a championship this year, or find 5 dollars on the ground? 🤔

    Yeah I honestly don't understand this for the Chargers. I think it's an absolute rape for the Packers. What's the point of this? Trading an MVP candidate QB, a legit #1 WR, a legit top 10 pass rusher, and a legit top 15-20 CB for maybe a SMALL upgrade at QB. Good for the Packers. Chargers just cost themselves a shot at winning this thing with one trade in my opinion.

    Its not rape. Rodgers has insanely more name value than Rivers, end of story. They were quite close numbers wise last year but most people will always pick A A ron.

    I get the trade for the Chargers, and they probably overpaid, but I get it.

    There's a difference between having more name value and being slightly better, and giving up a LEGIT #1 WR, a LEGIT stud pass rusher, and a clear cut #1 CB for that upgrade.

    This is something that the Packers should have gotten if they were downgrading to Joe Flacco. Not Rivers.
