Aaron Rodgers watched Drew Brees' career end last weekend with many feeling "he's an all-time great, but it's a shame he only reached and won one Super Bowl title." As the soon-to-be three-time NFL MVP prepares for the NFC Championship Game, you can bet not having such a legacy at the conclusion of his career is in the back of his mind.
There's no indication that Rodgers is close to retiring - 2020 was one of the finest seasons of his illustrious career. Still, he is 37, and considering the Packers are three-and-a-half point favorites at home this Sunday, it's hard to think he'll ever have a better chance to reach - and potentially win - his second Super Bowl.
All that stands in his way is Tom Brady, the most successful postseason quarterback in the history of the sport, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
