He helped the Packers achieve favorite status walking into the Playoffs to reach the Super Bowl. In addition to this, he has been playing at an MVP level and is a strong contender for the accolade this season.

Rodgers spoke to the press recently, ahead of the Packers’ playoff run beginning soon. When asked about what winning another Super Bowl title would mean to him, Rodgers said that he understands the honor that comes with it.

For Rodgers, he recognizes how long it has been since he and the Green Bay Packers won a Super Bowl title, and how special it would be for him to win again.

He said, “Obviously I’d love to win one, it’s been a long time. There’s a lot of ball played between now and February 6th, 2011 which was a beautiful day.

“It’s important to all of us. There are so many guys who haven’t been in that mix before. Only a few of us who are actually there for that moment.” 

Aaron Rodgers still focused on the team.

Rodgers acknowledged that many players on the team right now were not part of the 2011 Super Bowl win for them. He recognizes what another Super Bowl title would do for him – put him in the rarified air of quarterbacks that won multiple Super Bowl rings. But Rodgers is focused on helping the team right now, and that is all that he cares about.

“So It’d be nice for all of us to get back. As far as the other stuff, you know that’s fodder for dolphins and the media to talk about for years to cone.

“The Super Bowl is obviously a big part of the way quarterbacks are judged and teams, in general, are judged. But it has always and will always take a team to do it and hopefully, this is the team to do it.”

Rodgers has been sensational this season. If he can continue to play the way he did during the regular season, the Packers will be one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl. But the competition will be strong, with many teams motivated to win the title.
