Aaron Rodgers has led the Green Bay Packers to the cusp of a Super Bowl in back to back seasons but after Sunday’s 31-26 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game, it doesn’t seem like there will be a chance of a third straight NFC Championship Game appearance.
Rodgers was asked about his future when he met with reporters after the game and said his future is “uncertain” and talked repeatedly about “the finality” of this particular loss, indirectly hinting that he may or may not be under center with the Packers in 2021:
“I don’t know,” Rodgers said when asked where he goes from here. “I really don’t know. There’s a lot of unknowns going into this offseason now. I’m gonna have to take some time away, for sure, and just clear my head and just kinda see what’s going on with everything. It’s pretty tough right now, especially thinking about the guys that may or may not be here next year. That makes the finality of it all kind of you hit you like a ton of bricks.”
Back in April, Green Bay drafted Jordan Love in the first round to succeed Aaron Rodgers and it seems like that transition could come sooner rather than later.
