Aaron Rodgers joined Pat McAfee for his weekly apperance on “The Pat McAfee Show” and gave a glimpse into his confidence going into the playoffs. McAfee asked Rodgers about his life post football and Rodgers gave some insight. However, McAfee mentioned confetti falling when Rodgers would be reflecting on retirement and asked Rodgers if the Packers were going on a run. Rodgers responded:
What a Run Means for Aaron Rodgers
The Packers have not hoisted the Lombardi trophy in over a decade. In 2010 Aaron Rodgers led the Packers to a win in his only Super Bowl apperance. However, since then it’s been a road of heartbreaking playoff losses. Rodgers is favored to win his fourth MVP and has cemented himself as one of the best players of all time. However, often when discussing legacy, championships come into the conversation. Obviously football is a team game, and it itakes an entirer roster to win a championship, but many observers of the game will look at championships as a key piece of a quarterback’s legacy.
Many people can and should just look at Rodgers decleraion of going on a run as him just being confident in his team and himself. However, some Packers fans will remember in 2016 when Rodgers said the Packers were going to “run the table” and get into the playoffs. He delivered and the Packers rattled of six straight regular season wins and won the NFC North. Is this a similar situation? Is this another prophetic statement by the soon to be four time MVP?
