Will Aaron Rodgers Win Multiple Super Bowls or Are We Being Favred Again?

I know what you’re thinking Packer fans. Another Favre hater placing the blame on Brett for what he did to divide Packer nation. I loved Brett Favre on the field. Off the field, maybe not so much. That’s another blog for another day. What I mean by being Favred again? Brett Favre in his hall of fame career went to two Super Bowls. Our we doomed to repeat it with Rodgers? I will focus on the chances of Aaron Rodgers winning multiple Superbowls as quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.

First, let me take you back to the glory days of the late 90’s. We’ll skip the playoff games against the Dallas Cowboys. It’s 1997 and the Green Bay Packers are World Champions. Life is good. Packer fans rule the NFL world. We have the best quarterback, general manager, and coach in the NFL. Dreams of the Lombardi’s 1960’s Green Bay Packers play in the minds of Packer fans everywhere. This team is not only going to repeat, but three peat. The football experts think the Packers can. So, it must be true.

We flash forward to Super bowl XXXII against the Denver Broncos. Vegas has the Green Bay Packers as heavy favorites to win. The players and coaches are confident, loose, and ready to hoist another Lombardi trophy. Heck, I was ready to pop the champagne before the game even started. At the end of the game the champagne didn’t pop, it burst. We had been out coached, outplayed in every facet of the game. That’s all right Packer fans we still had the best quarterback, general manager, and coach in the NFL. We’ll win another Super bowl, right?

Here are we Packer Fans it’s 2012 and yes we did win Super bowl XLV. Aaron Rodgers was Super bowl XLV MVP. Rodgers won the NFL MVP, and is considered the best quarterback in the NFL. The question begs are the Packers going to win multiple Super bowls with Aaron Rodgers? If so, why didn’t Brett Favre? Favre for a good part of his career had a better offensive line, running game, and defense than Rodgers has had since becoming the starting quarterback.

What makes me think Aaron Rodgers will win multiple Super bowls? Three simple reasons. One because he wants to get out from Brett Favre’s shadow. You really think Rodgers wants to be compared to Brett Favre for the rest of his life? Once he wins another Super bowl the debate is over. Aaron Rodgers can finally stand on his own.

The second reason: Rodgers has the more drive than any quarterback in the NFL. The chip is still on his shoulder. He still talks about his difficult times he had in high school, junior college and the draft. He knows he can go down as one of few quarterbacks drafted in the late round to become a multiple Super bowl winner. Just like his hero Joe Montana who was drafted in the third round. By the way, he has stated in numerous interviews he would like to become the first NFL quarterback to win five Super bowls.

The third reason: losing sucks. After the Packers loss to the New York Giants in the playoffs he simply stated in his press conference, “it sucks to lose.” When he won the NFL MVP you could hear in his acceptance speech a man that was determined to win another Super bowl.
Maybe, that’s simple reasoning but I would guess the great athlete like Joe Montana would agree that losing sucks. That’s all the motivation he might have needed to win four championships.

We still have the best quarterback, general manager, and coach in the NFL. We’ll win another Super bowl, right? Or are we being Favred again?

    I hope your right but one thing…Aaron was not drafted in a late round he was drafted late in the first round.

    No, Aaron Rodgers will not be “Brett Favre Part 2” since he hasn’t even accomplished as much as “Brett Favre Part 1” at the same age. And what do you mean by “doomed to repeat”? Do you mean doomed to repeat 3 MVPs, 2 Supberbowls, constant national exposure, Monday Night games, and 1 losing season in 16 years? Must be nice. I’ll say this for the “Rodgers vs. Favre” paradigm. At least Favre doesn’t look like Balki from Perfect Strangers.
