All eyes on Aaron Rodgers as the Packers aim for Super Bowl glory

Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe were at it again on the latest installment of Undisputed. The former gave his two cents on the Packers vs Buccaneers game while singling out Rodgers for a special mention.

He said, “Aaron Rodgers has 10 times the pressure on him than Brady does this Sunday at Lambeau Field. To your point, this is all Aaron has ever wanted. It took him longer to get here than it’s taken any quarterback in history to get to a home championship game.”

“No one’s played as many games before getting to a home championship game NFC or AFC than Aaron has this Sunday. It’s all he’s ever talked about…it’s been 10 years since Aaron’s played in a Super Bowl… Well, obviously, he now has a chance that very few quarterbacks have,” Bayless said on the show.

Both players are having a gala season, despite being two of the oldest quarterbacks in the league. Tom Brady and Rodgers are hungry for a Championship ring. But in the end, it will all come down to who wants it more, and at this point in time, it’s really hard to tell. Make sure you tune in to catch this game live.
