Aaron Rodgers really wants to win another Super Bowl

USA TODAY Sports

In his first press conference of training camp, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said his current motivation is “love, probably.”

As in, apparently, he’d probably love to win another Super Bowl.

Rodgers told Adam Schein of SiriusXM Mad Dog Sports Radio that the two-time defending MVP hopes to become the one-time defending Super Bowl champion, again.

“I don’t say this as a cliche, I say this as heartfelt as I can,” Rodgers said. “I want to win the championship. I’ve had all the individual success I could possibly ever have dreamed of accomplishing. I’ve got 4 MVPs. I’m an honorary blackbelt. I’d like to win another Super Bowl.”

Rodgers is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. He’s done plenty without a supporting cast of players who are destined to be immortalized in bronze. This year, he won’t have receiver Davante Adams.

Still, it’s more than what he does, or doesn’t, have available to him. As Chris Simms has pointed out more than once, Rodgers often becomes very conservative in the postseason, resisting the kinds of throws he routinely attempts when not playing in a single-elimination setting.

Basically, if he wants it this year, he needs to go get it. When he won his only championship, the Packers entered the postseason as the No. 6 seed. They had nothing to lose, and they played that way, winning in Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Chicago. When they win the No. 1 seed, Rodgers sometimes plays like he has everything to lose.

So maybe that’s the right path for the Packers. Don’t win the division. Sneak in as a wild-card. Be written off by everyone. And then go on a tear in the postseason, capped with a Super Bowl win in Arizona.

  1. Oh Erin, you have to win the playoff games before you can get there. And you haven’t done that in a long, long time…..

  2. As far as I’m concerned if he doesn’t lead the Packers to a SuperBowl win, not just an appearance, he needs to be shown the door. He’s undeniably a ten-year postseason loser. He’s getting paid to win the whole thing. Put up or shut up, no excuses, no more do-overs. Get it done or take a hike. His self-serving, deceptive me-first attitude can only be tolerated so much. Enough.

  3. Yeah? That’s surprising. I think most players are just hoping to lose in the first round of the playoffs.

  4. I’m an honorary blackbelt

    Yup he has definitely been living among Packer fans for too long

  5. I’d like to win a Super Bowl too. I’d say both Rogers and myself have around an equal chance of that happening before retirement.

    LOL
    Never happen in a million years.

  7. Run it down their throat with Jones and Dillon and play elite defense. That formula usually works

    To be clear, Packer fans brag about giving away their money to help pay Packer exec’s compensation packages for a phoney piece of paper and now Aaron Rodgers is bragging about a phoney achievement. That is not a coincidence

  9. Playing away games in January/February could be the best thing for the Packers. Get out of the cold. Rodgers is more finesse than tough.

  10. Can he accept the Packers using a run-first offense like Elway did with Terrell Davis? That’s their best chance with their running game and defense. Rodgers first needs to accept limiting his heroball habits.

  11. in 2010 when Rodgers won the Super Bowl, I remember a game where the Packers beat the Jets, a very good defensive team at the time, 9-0. The Packers were a very tough team and could beat a team any way they had to. In 2011 after winning the Super Bowl they kicked off their title defense looking unstoppable, going 13-0.

    Then after going 15-1 on the season they looked bad against the Giants in the playoffs. Rodgers didn’t play his best game with a 78.5 rating, and the defense that could compete against anyone, the year prior gave up 37 points.

    The team already had become too dependent on Rodgers and the passing offense and it has basically stayed that way ever since.

    Rodgers doesn’t play a style of game that helps the defense. A long accurate passing game creates great QB stats, and when it’s on you win big, but when it’s off, the offense stalls and the defense gets tired from being on the field too often and you lose. It’s not a consistent way to win at football late in the season against great teams.

  12. It would help to stop playing like hot garbage in the biggest games of your life then.

    I don’t buy it either. He is totally content with owning the Bears, winning MVPs, and getting out of the playoffs early to go vacation. He doesn’t realize after his career that no one will care that he owned the Bears. It will only be his one Super Bowl and how much he left on the table.

  13. Hopefully, that means scoring more than 10 points in a playoff game. With Adams gone now, it means he’ll have to actually have to use his entire receiving corps.

  14. Hey Arron, as the saying goes “people in hell want ice water”. You suck in the playoffs because your afraid to throw in coverage and get intercepted and have the loss on your shoulders.
    He is so afraid of being the cause of a loss, he goes into a shell and just sucks in the playoffs.
    This guy will never get another SB ring. That boat has sailed baby.

  15. If he would stop being so conservative and playing not to lose,he might actually get past the NFCCG.

  16. Then he should have taken a Tom Brady style contract instead of being like a pig at a trough.

  17. Hard to criticize him for that, as the SB should be every NFL player’s goal. While the Pack will likely win the NFCN pretty handily, their Superbowl window has closed.

    ++++++
    But if he does lead them to a SB win then you will accept his lying self with open arms. Got it.

  19. It’s so weird when these self serving athletes give themselves accolades lol

    Wrong. He could leave or retire today and I wouldn’t flinch. I’d be pleased for the Packers and Packer fans if they win the SuperBowl, that’s it.

    Yes, “some” Packers fans including me have that worthless, ceremonial piece of paper that says we own the team. It’s silly, quaint, and pretty cool actually. I know if were a Vikings or Bears fan I’d gladly pay $200 for the McCaskey’s or the Wilf’s to NOT own my team, but y’all don’t get that option. The McCaskeys are just an embarrassing joke in the NFL, and the Wilf’s, opportunistic carpetbagging real estate developers–and actual Giants fans. I’ll happily take my piece of paper!

    What I said is Rodgers makes a bee line for cali every time his forced green bay living arragement ends. He is still stuck there what, 5-6 months a year?

  24. Kirk Cousins was recently quoted as saying, “I really want to lift the Vikings over that ever elusive .500 mark again…..Someday.”
    A noble goal.
    I, personally, don’t believe it’s honestly achievable, but a noble goal nonetheless. 🤣

    What about you? How long have you been stuck there?

  26. Never has a player done so little with so much…
    ==========

    He’s played with 1 top 5 defense… won a Super Bowl with that team.

    He’s played with 2 other top 10 defenses… lost teh 2009 Wild Card round after the D gave up 45 points, 591 total yards.. lost to the 9ers in the 2019 NFC Title Game, so lopsided, Garopolo only threw 8 passes.

    His offense? Almost always top 10, if not top 5. 3x they have been #1. 2011 is the #4 scoring offense in NFL history. 2nd best at the time.

    Rodgers has held up his end of the bargain.

  27. Every player wants to win the championship.
    For this Packer fan’s money, Rodgers has to get mentally tougher and more emotionally consistent to win the big ones. It’s like he sulks or pouts when games start going south, instead of rallying a team with determination and great play.
    Got to get through the NFC Championship game for a change.
