Aaron Rodgers Entering Season ‘With A Lot Of Unknowns’

Cliché as it may sound, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is hoping the third time’s the charm. On the heels of back-to-back losses in the NFC Championship Game, Rodgers has his sights set on leading Green Bay to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2011. But before Rodgers and the Pack can book flights to Los Angeles, home of this year’s Super Bowl, they’ll first have to navigate through a season filled with “a lot of unknowns.”

Super Bowl aspirations in what may well be Rodgers’ last season in Green Bay, have the three-time MVP focused on what lies ahead. Rodgers tells Bill Huber of FanNation:

“There is a lot of unknowns. So, the right perspective is needed, I think, from all of us. But I think we don’t feel pressure. I’m speaking personally, and I can’t speak for everybody, but the feel that I get with the energy in the locker room is not pressure. It’s focus. I think it’s the right perspective and the right type of focus. We know we have a talented team, we know what the expectations are.”

Rodgers’ top wideout, Davante Adams, who wants a new contract before next season, took things a step further and implied that the Packers are hungry for more than just cheese curds. Per FanNation:

“This is probably the hungriest team that I’ve ever been around, honestly, just because we have been so close a number of times now. So, I feel like everybody in the back of their mind, they know how reachable it is and realistic we are to getting to that final step. We just haven’t really had the opportunity to showcase what we can do in the real dance. Just being so close a few times, it opens up everybody’s eyes.”

Keenly aware that this may be his and Adams’ last run in Green Bay, Rodgers plans to soak it all in: “We’re going to enjoy this year for all that it has to offer, and each other.”
