Alongside Tom Brady and Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers is a top-three NFL quarterback from the last decade. The Green Bay Packers legend will complete 15 years in the league this season. The Super Bowl XLV winner and MVP is now 36 but continues to prove time and again why he is one of the best shot-callers around.
A-Rod has reiterated his desire to play in big leagues even when he is in his forties over and over again. However, Rodgers was in the news for all the wrong reasons in recent months.
The drafting of Jordan Love, his breakup with long-time beau Danica Patrick and other off-field issues caused the reputed athlete some unneeded disturbance. Nonetheless, A-Rod seems like a man with a plan heading into the 2020 season.
Aaron Rodgers talks about Patrick Mahomes, Brett Favre, and the 2020 NFL draft on 10 Questions with Kyle Brandt. Here’s what the two-time NFL MVP had to say as we edge closer to the 2020 NFL season.
“Talent-wise you know, I’ve definitely thrown with a lot of guys around the league and been a fan for a long time. I’ve never felt that there’s anybody, you know, watching them throw is, you know, that they’re head and shoulders above me.
“…Pat Mahomes is just, I think, the way that he plays really reminds me of myself and I say that with the utmost amount of respect and humility.
“I think I love watching him play because he runs around, he makes throws all over the place, he knows his passes and he does it with, you know, enough balance between swagger and humility,” Rodgers said on the podcast.
For his part, Mahomes has also heaped praise on Rodgers in the recent past. Both players are some of the top quarterbacks in the league at the moment. One at the start of his career and the other in the latter half of his.
A Pat Mahomes – Aaron Rodgers’ faceoff sounds like a feast for neutral fans.
