After Robert Kraft said earlier this week that Tom Brady would like to play six or seven more years, Mike McCarthy made the case for Aaron Rodgers to enjoy similar longevity.
Rodgers, 33, first indicated last offseason that he started to think of ways to extend his career.
"I mean mentally and physically, clearly yes; he has that ability," McCarthy said of whether Rodgers could play into his 40s. "I think there's no question there. But I think all positions in football are the same. It's their legs. You watch a player -- and it's no different with quarterbacks -- as long as they have their legs, they can compete at that level."
McCarthy, whose background is as a quarterbacks coach, doesn't see any reason why Brady can't keep going.
"I think you can only go by what's on film and based on his last game, he will accomplish that," McCarthy said. "I would bet on that. But there's a lot of factors that go into that. I think you have to give these athletes an incredible amount of credit what they're doing. With the rest and recovery and nutrition, I think you're now seeing the decade of what it's provided. It's provided for guys to play longer, especially at that position."
