It will be an interesting season for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers as we edge closer to the first game of the year. The 2020 NFL season will start on September 9, 2020. Reigning Super Bowl winners Kansas City Chiefs will go up against the Houston Texans in the opening game of the season.
However, the Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers have grabbed headlines in recent weeks. The Wisconsin-based franchise had a fruitful 2019 season wherein they managed to make the NFC Championship game. However, Rodgers failed to lead his team to the Super Bowl. Kyle Shanahan’s San Francisco 49ers won by a 37-20 scoreline.
Despite that disappointment, Rodgers had a fine individual season once again. He threw for 4,000+ yards for the second year running. He had a pass completion rate of 62 with just four interceptions as the Packers ended the regular season with a 13-3 record. At 36, Rodgers has shown no signs of slowing down in recent years.
This is why fans and players, and even Rodgers himself, were all shocked when the Packers opted to trade up and draft rookie quarterback Jordan Love in the 2020 NFL draft.
On a recent portion of The Herd With Colin Cowherd, they talked about the situation that Rodgers finds himself in at Lambeau Field. Hosts Colin Cowherd and Joy Taylor agreed that there is almost zero chance of Jordan Love getting a shot at sealing a starting berth before the season starts owing to the coronavirus pandemic. The shortened preseason period will mean that Rodgers will start the 2020 season as the first-choice quarterback.
The Packers faithful consider Rodgers as one of their own. Since being drafted in 2005, the California-born quarterback has led the Packers to one Super Bowl title. In addition to that, Rodgers also bagged the NFL MVP awards on two occasions (2011,2014). Fans were left perplexed when the Mark Murphy-led organization opted to bring in a quarterback rather than strengthen the wideout department. Without a doubt, this will spur A-Rod to up his game and silence his doubters in 2020.
