Green Bay Packers‘ star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, has performed brilliantly this season. He is currently going up against four teams with losing records. This will help him reduce the gap with fellow MVP contender Patrick Mahomes. Last Sunday night he threw four passing touchdowns against the Bears. Plays like these help him stay level with the front-runners. He managed these big plays without his usual supporting cast around him.
The Packers quarterback is not far behind Mahomes with a total quarterback rating of 85.1. He recently recorded his fifth game of the season with four touchdowns and zero interceptions, which by far is the maximum in a season in the history of the Packers.
Recently, Good Morning Football co-host Nate Burleson asked Packers’ linebacker Rashan A Gary what does number 12 (Aaron Rodgers) mean to the Packers,
Gary replied, “He rides well, and he means everything, you know, to see him walk around is how you carry yourself is a smooth calm, collected guy and know how to lead, lead by example. You know I’m happy to have one of my quarterbacks baseball ready to lead.”
Rodgers won his first-ever MVP in the year 2011. It was when the season after he won the Super Bowl. The Packers owned the 2011 season. Once again he is in the running for MVP this year, along with Kansas City Chiefs‘ Patrick Mahomes and Seattle Seahawks‘ Russell Wilson.
The two-time NFL MVP has been at his best throughout this season. If he continues to play as he is playing right now, he might just have a shot at beating Mahomes to the MVP title this season.
It has been over seven months now since the Packers drafted Jordan Love as a rookie quarterback, but Rodgers still can not move on. He clearly stated his disappointment with the decision of drafting Jordan in the first round.
Rodgers spoke about it when he appeared on “The Pat McAfee Show.” He talked about the importance of milestones and records. He also added later that he is still nowhere near retirement.
“I don’t think I’m done by any stretch of the imagination. Even though some people may have thought so in the offseason,” said Rodgers on the show
This move made by the Packers could motivate Rodgers to keep up with his best play. Maybe it might even help him win the Super Bowl. If this happens, all this would definitely be worth it. But the chances of him winning his third MVP entirely depend on how his teammates complement him in the next five weeks.
