WATCH: Aaron Rodgers Drops Pass In The Bucket From 40 Yards

Videos by OutKick

Some talent is just worth the trouble.

After the Packers’ wild goose chase for quarterback Aaron Rodgers during the offseason, the reigning MVP is back to remind fans that few arms in the league can do what his can do.

During Green Bay’s practice on Thursday, the 37-year-old QB gave a taste of his trusted accuracy by hitting a hoop from nearly 40 yards out. The scene drove the audience of Packers fans wild, and sent a single tear running down backup Jordan Love’s cheek.

While the agreement between a returning Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers indicates that this upcoming season will be their “last dance,” the Duke of Discount Double Checks is determined to bring his arsenal of offense back to the NFC Championship Game.

After more than a decade since his latest Super Bowl appearance, the pressure now mounts as Rodgers faces his final season(s) in the league with a championship or two left to win in order to solidify his legacy.

With a career in Green Bay that will span 17 seasons and a list of Hall of Fame-worthy accolades — including three MVP awards and all-time leader in QB passer rating (122.5) — already in his pocket, Aaron Rodgers should have a special final season in Wisconsin.

    • Aaron Rodgers is a great regular season QB. He’s not so great in the playoffs as his 4 consecutive NFC Championship game losses indicate. He’s the only QB in NFL history to lose 4 consecutive NFC Championship game appearances.

      • To be fair he’s had numbers in the postseason that line up with his regular season performance. He’s also performed better in the playoffs than Brady statistically. Brady has a career playoff QB rating of 90.3, and Rodgers has a career 100.5 in the playoffs. The difference is obviously Brady has had some GREAT defenses behind him too. The biggest problem GB usually has in the playoffs is the defense can’t stop anyone. In Rodgers’ 9 playoff losses GB has averaged giving up 38 points. I’m no fan of Rodgers but he’s clearly not the problem with GB not winning titles.
