Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are heading into the 2020 NFL season as one of the more intriguing teams to watch. After finishing last season with a 13-3 record and a trip to the NFC Championship Game, no one knows what to expect this year.
Despite the unknown future for the Packers, there is one thing that is certain. Rodgers will be playing with a major chip on his shoulder this year.
Even after all the success that the team had in 2019, Brian Gutekunst made a huge move in the 2020 NFL Draft. He chose to trade up in the first round to select Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. Obviously, Love will end up replacing Rodgers at some point for the Packers.
During the 2019 season, Rodgers still put up good numbers despite the criticism he has received. He completed 62 percent of his pass attempts for 4,002 yards, 26 touchdowns, and four interceptions. Those numbers show a lot of good football left in him.
With football right around the corner, but with the COVID-19 pandemic making fans nervous about the status of the season, fans need reasons to get excited. Thankfully, Rodgers has provided all of us with plenty of highlights.
Here are 10 crazy plays that Aaron Rodgers has made throughout his career that will excite fans about the upcoming season.
If that didn’t get you excited about Packers’ football in 2020, nothing will. Rodgers has been a gift to the franchise and will certainly be missed when he is gone.
Bringing in Love is an obvious memory of a rough time for Packers fans. When Rodgers was first brought in, Brett Favre was the starting quarterback. After a few years, Rodgers ended up pushing Favre out, and we all know that Favre ended up with the Minnesota Vikings.
When Love ends up taking over, Rodgers may not be done playing. He could very well end up leaving and signing or being traded to another team.
No matter what ends up happening, Aaron Rodgers will always be a Packer. He has done too many great things with the franchise, including the 10 plays above. Nothing will ever change what he has done and meant for the Packers’ franchise.
Expect to see more great moments from Rodgers this season. If he plays up to the standard that many are expecting with extra motivation, the Packers are going to be a tough team to beat.
