The Current View: Aaron Rodgers Leaving Packers

What are your thoughts about Aaron Rodgers being traded to the Jets?

“I think it’s a very good thing because he’s been done for a couple of years and it’s been kind of toxic for the team, so it’s time to get some fresh blood in there.”
Michelle Hunt, West math teacher

“I don’t think that he should be leaving because he’s been with them for so long. I just personally think that he’s better suited for our team.”
Grace Lowe, West junior

“I think that a lot of Wisconsinites will be pretty upset about the departure and that possibly the Packers could lose quite a few more games because of his departure.”
Max Geiger, West sophomore

“Now I don’t have to keep reading about/hearing about the drama that was created by a prima donna athlete who thinks he is bigger than any of his other teammates. So I wish him nothing but the best as he wears his new jersey number in New York.”
Scott Mindel, East social studies teacher

“I want to see Jordan Love play so I guess I’m glad he’s leaving but it’s going to be hard not watching him.”
Brett McNamara, East junior

I think Aaron Rodgers was a phenomenal player for the Packers, but it’s time for him to go. I think that from what they saw from Jordan Love playing last year, I’m pretty confident that he’s going to be a pretty decent player. And I’m going to throw some economics in here because they are spending 60 million dollars a year on Rodgers and that’s money they can’t spend on other players.”
Dave Talma, East social studies teacher
