Aaron Rodgers: Green Bay's Title Window Remains Open

Jan 20, 2020 9:07 AM

At age 36, Aaron Rodgers believes the title window of the Green Bay Packers open.

"The window's open, and I think we're going to be on the right side of one of these real soon," Rodgers said after his third NFC title game loss in four attempts.

"That's the exciting thing. It doesn't make this feeling any easier, but that is very exciting moving forward."

The Packers trailed the San Francisco 49ers by a combined score of 50-0 at halftime of their two games this season.

"Well, it looks pretty big," Rodgers said of the gap. "They got us a couple times, but I don't think it's that big. I think we're really close. I think we're just a little more consistent performance away from consistently playing with these guys. But we got him at their place twice. I've said this before: We've got to get one of these at home. It's a different ballgame. It's different playing in 20-degree weather and snow. Cold and wind is a different type of game than playing here."

After two straight losing seasons and a coaching change, Rodgers called this season special for one overriding reason.

"This one will always be special because it became fun again," he said.

Aaron Rodgers: I Don't Need 40 TD Passes For Us To Win

Dec 27, 2019 8:15 AM

Aaron Rodgers is aware of his statistics, but he doesn't have to carry the Green Bay Packers anymore.

"I think the level of success and the way that I feel I'm playing is different in this offense this year," Rodgers said. "I don't need to throw 40 touchdowns for us to win. I need to be great on my checks, be as efficient as possible. I need to take care of the football."

Rodgers needs 321 yards in Green Bay's season finale to reach 4,000 for the season. He has thrown for 321 yards in a game only twice this season, and he hasn't thrown for even 250 yards in any of his past seven games.

Aaron Rodgers Sees Career 'Making The Turn' Toward 18th Hole

Dec 5, 2019 9:19 AM

Aaron Rodgers turns 36 this week and is nearing the end of his 15th season in the NFL.

"Yeah, that and seeing the 18th hole coming up, realizing I can't play forever and the opportunities don't come along all the time," Rodgers said.

The Green Bay Packers have missed the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, but they will be playing meaningful games in December and likely January.

Rodgers has repeatedly said that he plans to play into his 40s, but in continuing his golf-as-a-metaphor-for-his career analogy, all he would say he is he's "making the turn, I think."
