Packers’ lack of an owner gives Rodgers too much power
Yesterday, the Packers fired outside linebackers coach Winston Moss after he tweeted that the next Green Bay coach needed to hold everyone in the organization to the “Lombardi Standard,” including Aaron Rodgers.
Colin thought the tweet was hardly the basis for a firing, but also believes it shows how the entire organization is too focused on keeping Rodgers happy and not how to restore the franchise to a title contender. He thinks Green Bay’s lack of an actual owner is a large part of the problem and allows Rodgers, and Favre before him, far more power than any player on teams with traditional owners. While even the most powerful Cowboy never would question that Jerry Jones is the ultimate boss, the Packers don’t have anyone that wields anywhere close to the same clout and can keep their star in check. The result is Rodgers getting too much power, which is now coming back to bite them.
