A-Rog didn't like that Green Bay management didn't consult him before ditching his QB coach.

Word to the Cheeseheads: You might want to make sure your all-time great quarterback is happy. 

Aaron Rodgers is currently in Minneapolis for Super Bowl week, and spoke with ESPN Radio Thursday morning. The superstar let the world know that he isn't thrilled with some of the offseason moves the Packers (ugh) have made, specifically, getting rid of his quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. 

"My quarterback coach didn't get retained," Rodgers said, via ESPN's Jason Wilde. "I thought that was an interesting change – really without consulting me. There's a close connection between quarterback and quarterback coach. And that was an interesting decision."

Clearly, A-Rog thinks he should be running the joint in Packerville.

Rodgers went on to say some other coaching changes were a "little strange." 

Just because Rodgers is irked with some managerial decisions doesn't mean he's going to bail on the Packers (ugh).

But if he does want to work his way out of America's least interesting place, there's likely an open locker in the Vikings' beautiful new practice facility in Eagan waiting for him. 

Aaron, if you see this. You might want to avoid any run in with Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr while you're in town. 

That said, Rodgers has some weapons of his own...
