At 36, Aaron Rodgers has proven that he is still more than capable of playing at the highest level in the NFL. The Green Bay Packers veteran has been phenomenal in the league this season.

He’s thrown for 1,200+ yards with 13 passing TDs against zero interception. His passer rating of 128 is second only to Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson (136).

Not many predicted Rodgers to perform the way he is currently performing because of a sub-par outing in the 2019 NFC Championship game. The drafting of rookie Jordan Love in the first round was another shocker for Rodgers to deal with.

However, the two-time NFL MVP has shown great character over the last four weeks to lead his team to a 4-0 record in their ongoing campaign.

Aaron Rodgers takes shots at critics after a stellar start to the 2020 NFL season

Green Bay Packers great, Aaron Rodgers, made his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday alongside AJ Hawk. Rodgers addressed the constant criticism he’s been subjected to over the years and his response was crystal clear.

“Every team is different, every year is different. Circumstances in any year which allow you to have more success or make it more difficult for success just kind of depends on the situation. It does help being in the second year, for sure.

“I feel a lot more comfortable, but I sometimes laugh when people talk about down years for me because a lot of times down years for me are career years for most quarterbacks. It’s just the facts, bro,” Rodgers said on the show.

Rodgers was at his devastating best in the Packers’ latest 30-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons. He threw for 327 yards with 4 passing TDs against zero interceptions to maintain his team’s unbeaten run. He will enjoy the week off along with his teammates as the Packers have a bye in Week Five.

Following the break, the Packers take on the Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week Six at the Raymond James Stadium. They have another away game lined up after that against Deshaun Watson’s Houston Texans towards the end of October.

Two more wins and the Packers will be one step closer to making this year’s Playoffs.
