Aaron Rodgers: I feel as good as I’ve ever felt after the regular season

Aaron Rodgers has played 16 seasons. In nine of those seasons, the Packers quarterback has played all 16 games.

Never has he entered the postseason as fresh as he feels this postseason.

Rodgers was sacked only 20 times, second-fewest in the NFL behind Philip Rivers among qualifying quarterbacks. It is the fewest sacks Rodgers has taken in a single-season since he became the starter.

“I definitely feel as good as I’ve felt after the season in I can’t even remember,” Rodgers said Thursday. “That’s a big positive, especially at 37. A lot of that’s due to the low number of sacks that we had. Obviously, I consider some of the things I’ve done in the offseason, in the weight room, a big help as well. But it’s been one of those years. Sometimes you can’t avoid those things. Just things can happen. Guys can fall on your legs or take a misstep. But this year I’ve thankfully avoided those and feel really good.”

Rodgers did not miss a practice this season and played 98 percent of the offensive snaps.

“I think it’s the strongest I’ve definitely felt and, yeah, probably the least sore, the least amount of bumps and issues,” he said. “I think we all deal with certain things throughout the season, but to be able to have made it through every practice and not be limited in any of them definitely was a change for me, a very welcomed change.”

Rodgers, the MVP favorite, led the NFL in completion percentage (70.7), passing touchdowns (48) and passer rating (121.5).

  1. easily the MVP, He would be in the conversation of the greatest of all time if he didn’t sit behind Favre for 4 years

    the guy would be crushing records had McCarthy not pull him in some of those blowouts, unlike Sean Payton who let Brees pad his stats

  3. Props to Brian Gutekunst for putting together such a great offensive line (with help from Ted Thompson of course) and none of them first rounders. They’ve had a great season, whatever happens in the playoffs. It’s great to see one of the all-time greats back playing at an MVP level. Just very few can do what Rodgers can do with the football.

  4. Weight training for the first time in your nfl career will have that effect. Can’t believe he admits to never having done squats before this season. For an NFL player. Wow no wonder he had been on decline until this season. What as lazy front running stat chaser and individual award lover.

  5. Just imagine how good Rodgers could have been if he had Tom Brady’s work ethic.

  6. Feeling good he says… already prepping for the blame game that will follow their inevitable playoff loss. I can hear him now “oh it wasn’t me I felt great the wide receiver didn’t run the right route” or “our defense just didn’t show up today” or my favorite Aaron Rodgers excuse “the play calling could have been better”

  7. Oh great and cheesy one . . . yes, Rodgers is terrible. Our Vikings’ work ethic has brought us championship after championship!

  8. Yeah . . . all those excuses . . . COVID opt outs, injuries, bad officiating . . . oh wait . . .

  9. There is truly nothing more enjoyable than to read the delusional rants from the self loathing and bitter Barneys.
    Their seething anger pleases me so, and their tears are absolutely delicious. 😋
    They lash out, screaming incoherently, like bratty unsupervised children.
    But I guess they have little choice after feeling the backhand of Aaron Charles Rodgers year after agonizing year.

  10. Not a Packer fan per se, but Rogers has been one of the great QBs of all time and will be remembered long after the flash-in-the-pan league MVPs are relegated to obscurity, one of those faintly remembered names you need to Google to jog the memory as to why.

  11. Just think that if dilfer 2.0 had a work ethic he wouldn’t be known as a one hit wonder!

    He could be Alex Smith too. We’ll never know.

  13. We are so envious of those Packers and their titles, MVPs . . . and so on . . . and so on . . .
