    Well, Rodgers is off the Covid list. He gets to play against the SeaChicks.

    Thread cleaned again.

    Please stop with the personal stuff and pushing the Covid talk too far.

    It’s certainly bad optics. Maybe they placed a little too much faith in the new protocols because of the vaccines.

    I don’t think there’s a real concern.

    Lock wasn’t suspended. He was held out of a game because of Covid protocols. Same thing is the case with Rodgers.

    The issue with the Broncos is that all of their quarterbacks were out due to protocols. The game didn’t get rescheduled because the quarterbacks tried to circumvent the protocols. That was the right decision.

    This really has nothing to do with preferential treatment of star players.

    My Thought Exactly why I do not want to see A. Rodgers ever in a DB Uniform. A 1 year Rental when we all know 1. Rodgers will never come to Denver, 2. I don't want him here, 3.Diva QB Totally besides he will going to Pittsburgh for their 1 year rental I want to see Denver get this QB Position right by ensuring that Denver will not be looking to replace a QB every year. I am totally not sold on Teddy Bridgewater what you get from Teddy is Fools Gold so I hope that we do not buy it.

    I am not mad at Rodgers for not wanting to get Vaccinated. I am upset that the league wasn't consistent with policy, if suspension is the policy. Not giving away draft picks to get Rodgers wasn't a bad move.

    Look Rodgers is a diva, very gruff with young players that don't do what he wants, and embarrasses guys too. He hasn't always owned his poor play in some playoff games, he has often carried less talented teams offensively and been a victim of lousy defenses when a good defense might of won another Super Bowl. When you play as long as Rodgers has a lot of these things happen. Manning didn't embarrass guys on the field very often, but he certainly was called the Sheriff for a reason. Rodgers has ridiculous talent, HOF talent. He may have lost a step. I will cheer for him if Denver signs him. I don't like everything about him, but Elway wasn't a perfect teammate all of the time either.

    So, when Drew Lock violated a Covid protocol, He was suspended a game and DeN forces to start a Practice Squad player at QB…. Drew didn’t have Covid…

    Aaron Rodgers lied at least 9 times that he was vaccinated and never wore a mask on sideline or in facility, per Covid protocols…. And doesn’t he have Covid? Rodgers here 14k fine. No suspension.

    Please explain.
    Because the Broncos werent a contender, Lock wasnt...isnt...a star player, and we were a mediocre team at best. So the league made an example of us that day. "see, this is how seriously we take our protocols".

    the packers are contenders, and Rodgers is a superstar. Thus, the different treatment. And the word now is "see, we take this stuff seriously, did you see the fines we levied?"

    It shouldnt be that way, but as they say, it is what it is.

    NFL is clearly over it now after officially fining him, Allen, and the team. So fans should get over it too. He ain't yall QB.

    Zero opinion on vaccine , who gets it , how effective it is , don't care , not the point here:

    Rogers lied, violated league rules multiple times. These are rules that are supposedly important to the league's ability to operate a safe and healthy work environment. That they're being enforced to different degrees depending on the level of star power is the problem here.

    CeeDee lamb just got fined more for having his shirt untucked than Rogers did for multiple violations of covid protocol which on our side resulted in our team playing an NFL game without a quarterback. Hold everyone to the same standards, and if you're going to put an emphasis on covid , whether it's for player safety or PR , enforce it.

    Its been said before that it seems the league hates the Broncos right now bc of the ownership situation. Also it's Rodgers, he makes the league too much money to keep him out long. As well to add the league kinda acts on how often someone is a repeat offender of something.
    And in general this is a terrible comparison. Lock and the other QBs were mostly held out bc the game was coming up and all the QBs were around each other. Broncos already had a game that season impacted by covid, league wasn't gonna cancel the game for them. Rodgers situation happened without the other QBs testing positive or being involved. Rodgers has already missed a game, so no real reason to make him miss another, especially when again he makes the league so much money. Especially compared to any Bronco QB.
    This is the truth.
