Davante Adams: Aaron Rodgers deserves another Super Bowl

Aaron Rodgers was the MVP of Super Bowl XLV, which cemented his status among the game’s elite quarterbacks. But that Super Bowl was a decade ago.

Mike Evans: At this point in his career, Tom Brady is playing chess

For Tom Brady, this is old hat (or old helmet?). The quarterback is playing in his 14th championship game.

The franchise is in [more]
