Detroit Lions ‘literally’ send Aaron Rodgers into darkness

Heading into Week 18 of the 2022 NFL regular season, the Detroit Lions were still alive in the playoff hunt, but that came to an end when the Seattle Seahawks took down the Los Angeles Rams. But, when Detroit took on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday Night Football, they still had two things to play for. First, they were playing for respect, which they did not believe they were being given. And second, they were playing to eliminate Rodgers and the Packers from playoff contention. Both of those things happened as the Lions beat the Packers, and while doing so, we have now learned that they have ‘literally’ sent Rodgers into a dark place.

Aaron Rodgers is headed to a dark place

Possibly the biggest question heading into the offseason is, where will Rodgers end up playing in 2023? Will he continue his run with the Packers, or will he demand to be traded to a team like the Jets or Raiders?

On Tuesday, Rodgers joined the crew on the Pat McAfee Show, and he revealed that once the Super Bowl is concluded, he is going to go on a “darkness retreat” to consider his NFL future.

“I’ve got a pretty cool opportunity to do a little self-reflection in some isolation, and then after that, I feel like I’ll be a lot closer to a, final decision,” Rodgers said.

“It’s four nights of complete darkness,” Rodgers continued. “You’re not locked in. You can leave if you can’t do it. You can just walk out the door. It’s a darkness retreat. I’ve had a number of friends who’ve done it and had some profound experiences.

“It’s just sitting in isolation, meditation, dealing with your thoughts,” Rodgers added. “It stimulates DMT, so there can be some hallucinations in there, but it’s just kind of sitting in silence, which most of us never do. We rarely even turn our phones off or put the blinds down to sleep in darkness. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Bottom Line for Aaron Rodgers

It is going to be very interesting to see what comes out of this “darkness” retreat that Rodgers plans on doing. If I was a betting man, my bet would be that he ends up asking to be traded and that the Packers gladly make a deal to move on from him. But, the bottom line is that by knocking the Packers out of the playoffs, the Lions have sent Rodgers into a dark place, and that is pretty awesome!
