Aaron Rodgers compares his Packers team to Super Bowl winner

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are on the cusp of reaching the playoffs. That would have seemed unfathomable after their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thanksgiving weekend.

 

 

But the Packers have won every game since. They’ve gotten help with some losses from the Washington Commanders. They control their fate on Sunday Night Football against the Detroit Lions.

Rodgers spoke about the Packers’ chances in the playoffs this season. During his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers compared this team to the 2010 Packers squad that won the Super Bowl.

“You want to be playing your best football late in the season, and usually, we’re fighting for playoff seeds,” Rodgers said.

And you want to be healthy and playing your best ball, and we haven’t done that over the years. There’s been a lot of years we didn’t play our best ball going into the playoffs, or we weren’t healthy, and we had some early exits,” he said.

 

 

“But the last time we won a Super Bowl, we had to win and get in,” Rodgers said. “And we were playing our best ball late in the season. So, we’ve won four in a row. [In the 2016 season], we had to win six in a row to get in, and made it to the NFC Championship. This football team is much better than that football team was.”

The Packers need to focus on SNF

The Packers are getting hot at the right time. It took a while for Aaron Rodgers and his youthful wide receivers to gel. Suddenly the Packers’ defense looks elite.

But the Packers have no time to think about the Super Bowl this week. They need to concentrate on beating the Lions Sunday. If the Lions sweep them, there will be a lot of negativity surrounding a team that had high aspirations this season.
