Aaron Rodgers: My future is a beautiful mystery

NFL: JAN 16 NFC Divisional Playoff - Rams at Packers

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that he doesn’t want anyone on the team thinking about the Super Bowl because “you’ll get your ass beat and you’ll be packing your bags on Monday” if you do.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a similar view when it comes to looking beyond this Sunday’s NFC Championship Game. Rodgers was asked on Wednesday if he’s thought about the possibility that his fifth trip to the game will be his final one.

Rodgers said that he’s “staying in the present” and isn’t going to think about what the future might hold.

“I hope there’s more opportunities, but I don’t know. I really don’t,” Rodgers said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “That’s outside of my control. My future is a beautiful mystery, I think.”

The Packers’ decision to draft quarterback Jordan Love in the first round meant Rodgers’ future was a topic of conversation coming into the season. He responded to that with a season that’s likely to net him the MVP award. That doesn’t guarantee future trips deep into the postseason, but it does make it seem a lot likelier.

  1. I don’t understand the drafting of Love. Rodgers should force his way out after this season and go to Minnesota like Favre did and win a SB there.

  2. Isn’t this the guy who doesn’t talk to his family? Its none of my business but he needs to somehow rectify that situation instead of making those dopey commercials.

  3. Bucs win, Roger’s pulls a Brady and goes to Miami to retire…

    Totally pulling this out for humor but he’ll, who knows

  4. I want to see what kind of season he has next year if they draft another qb in the first round.

  5. You may love him, or you may hate him. He comes off as a smug, arrogant, disconnected petty boy, but if that dude isn’t one of the all-time best in your book, your opinion is wrong.

  6. Rodgers remains the best QB in the NFL – has been for the last decade plus – he may be the NFL’s best ever. Manning in his prime was equal to Rodgers, neither Brady past nor Muhomes present is as good as Rodgers.

  7. I dont like Rodgers as a person but, he is without a doubt the best QB since he became a starter. He sure as heck responded to the Jordan Love pick the right way by playing his butt off.

  8. Anyone could win this weekend and any of the 4 possible matchups will be fun, but Brady is a tough matchup. Good luck Aaron. If TB wins, a Brady-Bills Superbowl would be great. Either way it is an old vs. young SB. Brady is nearly as old as the two AFC QBs combined.

  9. Rodgers is so California Cool, it’s almost unfair to other teams in the division. From the view of Packer fans, he exemplifies the energy created by our unbending faith in the success of the Packers. It’s a magnificent feeling to be rewarded for that support in such an enviable manner; three (3) sixteen-year HOF Packer veteran quarterbacks. I’ve seen all three in-person more times than I can remember. If the Rodgers and the Packers never win anything substantive ever again, it won’t natter to me…..I’ve seen it all. It’s been pretty sweet, let me tell you.

  10. With over $48Mil dead cap through the next 2 years AR is going nowhere. If he or the team chooses to move on in ’23 then so be it, but he’s a Packer until then. Nothing wrong with Love sitting & learning for another few years behind a 1st ballot HOF’r until he’s needed. The rest of the NFL can continue mortgaging their future with trades for possible immediate success (whoever throws 1st rounders at Houston for Watson?)… GB is set for the foreseeable future.

  11. Not sure why folks are upset with what he said? Haters going to hate, lovers going to love.

  12. For someone who just gave $500K to the Barstool fund and has raised millions to fight childhood cancer and has never been in any trouble of any kind, it never ceases to amaze me how disliked Rodgers is, not just in Green Bay, but nationally…

    He’s clearly better than Favre, but will never be as beloved as Favre. I don’t get it. Any team short of the Chiefs or Bills would be lucky to have Rodgers, but he’s just been taken for granted his entire career, by his team, by his city and by fans across the country.

  13. Like Brett, Aaron will be QB in Green Bay just as long as he wants to be. Brett just announced his retirement one time too many.

  14. The last go around with Brett was to late in the offseason and to close to the draft. Pack decided they were not playing his game anymore.

  15. Sounds like he got into the tequila again like when the Packer’s traded up to draft love in the first
