The stage is set, the actors are ready, and the curtains are about to be drawn. Brace yourselves NFL fans, the NFC Championship game is right around the corner and we have 2 stalwarts getting ready to go head-to-head in a mouth-watering encounter. A Tom Brady vs Aaron Rodgers showdown is what’s in store for us on Sunday.
What makes things even spicier? This is Rodgers’ first-ever NFC Championship game at the Lambeau Field. An estimated crowd of 6,500 fans are expected to be allowed inside the stadium.
A frozen Tundra and a packed Lambeau won’t make things for the 6-time Super Bowl winner, Tom Brady. But a certain analyst reckons it will be A-Rod who is going to be on the proverbial ‘hot seat’ and not TB12.
“Brady is at the top of the mountain top, at the top of the mountain top. You guys understand what I’m saying? Brady is the unquestioned most accomplished, greatest quarterback ever.
“And I think right now if you did some type of poll, who’s the greatest football player ever? I don’t know if Brady would get a majority, but I bet he’d get a plurality over Jerry Rice,” Wright said.
The outspoken analyst further spoke about how Aaron Rodgers will be under immense pressure to prove his doubters wrong. This is just his second Super Bowl appearance since he last won Lombardi in 2011.
He said, “Aaron Rodgers needs another Super Bowl appearance. He can’t go a decade without it. And so I think there is it to me, there’s a very simple question. Rogers has more to gain than anyone remaining except for Josh Allen.”
Coach Matt LaFleur’s Packers will consider themselves as favorites heading into this tie. Although they have been beaten once by the Bucs earlier this season, they look like a team possessed based on recent wins.
