Though Tom Brady is widely regarded as the ‘greatest of all time’, it’s no stretch to say the guy up in Green Bay is the most talented quarterback of all time.
And yet, Rodgers, labeled by many as one of the greatest “throwers of the football” ever somehow has only managed a single Super Bowl ring through 12 seasons in Green Bay. Rodgers finds himself part of a franchise seemingly reluctant to capitalize on having one of the greatest QBs of all time under center, almost criminally unwilling to spend in other areas like defense, escpially through free agency, to bolster the roster.
As Tom Brady gears up for yet another big game, it appears as if the 34-year-old Rodgers would be open to making a chance of teams to try to get back to another and win one before his career is over.
The 34-year-old acknowledged Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press that he may have to play for another team towards the back end of his career, similar to what another NFL great and former Packers did in Brett Favre.
He also noted he would like to extend his career to play as into his 40’s like Brady in New England.
“I think you have to be humble enough to realize if it could happen to Brett, it can happen to you,” Rodgers said.”
Rodgers went on to mention that he was sort of taken aback by the team’s decision to not retain the quarterbacks coach without consulting with him.
Full quote from Aaron Rodgers on losing Van Pelt: “My quarterback coach didn’t get retained. 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.”
