I have been watching a lot of TMZ this week, mostly because I haven’t been able to find my TV remote, and the talk of the town is that Aaron Rodgers has been hanging out with a bunch of actors and models in Hawaii. He is living out the plot of ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’.

Devastated, Aaron Rodgers takes a Hawaiian vacation to deal with the recent break-up with his long-time small town, small-hearted team, the Green Bay Packers. Little does he know, the Packers are Jor-DONE with him. The Packers are traveling to the same resort as Rodgers, and they’re bringing a new Love they found with a higher draft pick.

I don’t like being a mean person. I’m not mean by nature, so I won’t say that Rodgers should stop sucking in his gut to try to look as cool as Miles Teller. I also won’t say that he looks like a dad taking a memorable scrapbook photo with his three kids. I won’t say those things about Rodgers because I’m a nice guy, and I’m not here to judge. I will say that Rodgers could be doing a better job of hard balling his recent ex.

PR 101

Skipping offseason training is a move that has been used by players for years. Usually, an unsuccessful tactic by players negotiating for new contracts, nonetheless MVP caliber quarterbacks trying to get traded by their team. Do you know who else skipped offseason training activities? Ryan Leaf. Not a great look Rodgers.

Another questionable move by Rodgers that is not being talked about enough is that he decided to go on a romantic couples vacation with his fiance’s co-star, Miles Teller.

Well, let me give you the background.

Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley have worked in four movies together. They have a lot of chemistry together and look much closer in age than Rodgers and Woodley do. Notably, the one movie that stands out the most is ‘The Spectacular Now,’ where Teller and Woodley shared many romantic and mushy scenes. Rodgers is in a similar situation that Kanye West was in with Ray J and Kim Kardashian. 

Bad strategy by Rodgers. It seems he tried taking the approach of “keep your friends close and your enemies closer,” but as far as I can tell, Rodgers is getting completely alpha’d by Miles Teller. Definitely a stain that will be hard to remove from Rodgers’ legacy.

All in all, Rodgers has a very aloof personality both on and off the field, or so you think. From what I have uncovered, Rodgers has some tricks up his sleeve. He is a man with a plan. Though, that plan seems to be completely blowing up in his face.

Rodgers, this is my official application to be your PR guy. I want to help you on your quest to get out of Green Bay as soon as possible. Hit me up. My dm’s are open.
