Despite that setback, Rodgers had a good regular season with the Packers. He threw for 4,000+ yards for the second year running with rates of 62 and 26 passing TDs. If things had gone differently for the A-Rod and the Packers, they could have competed against the Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
At the age of 36, Rodgers has already admitted that he hopes to play as long as he is in his ‘forties’ like a coworker – Tom Brady. However, Mark Murphy’s organization created quite a stir when he traded and drafted Rocky quarterback Jordan Love earlier this year.

Stephen A. Smith supports Aaron Rodgers to meet expectations this season
Vocal sports analyst Stephen A. Smith was also not very happy with how the Packers treated A-Rod over the years. He is known in a recent segment ESPN’s Get Up.
“Don’t you think you could use another receiver? You don’t think you were another tight end, one running back? Someone on the defensive side of the ball? It’s Aaron Freakin Rodgers.”
“I am not blaming coach Matt Leffler because he is the coach and he has the officials who made that decision but he is not innocent in all of this. This is fake, this is nonsense. What we hear from the Green Bay Packers , I don’t give a damn about that. As far as I’m concerned, they should be ashamed of themselves. “
“This is Aaron Rodgers … I challenge you to find any football aficionado who can tell me that you are looking at Aaron Rodgers and saying oh, he only has a year or two left. “Of course, that’s not true. He has many years left but the Green Bay Packers never cared for him. They never looked out for him, they never gave him up on this roster with elevated talent. Smith said on the show
