Aaron Rodgers’ most recent interview on the Pat McAfee show caught Rob Gronkowski’s attention.
After being eliminated from postseason contention in Week 18 by a division rival, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers faces yet another offseason of uncertainty.
The Detroit Lions slammed the door shut on any possible playoff run by Rodgers and the Packers this year when they ended their own season on a high note, ensuring Green Bay didn’t get into the postseason.
Since the end of their season, Rodgers has understandably had plenty of questions thrown his way in regard to his future. Recently, he went on and made his regular appearance on The Pat McAfee Show and let everybody know his current thoughts on coming back for the 2023 season.
Rodgers told McAfee that he thought he could still play at a high level and even win an MVP at his age. But, that particular quote didn’t seem to sit well with a former NFL tight end.
Rob Gronkowski told Kay Adams how he really felt about Aaron Rodgers’ latest comments
“I’m totally fine with everything he said, except for one major part … Bro, why are you thinking MVP when you should be thinking Super Bowls?”
Gronk has a fair point, within context.
But, as much as people love to hate Rodgers, we do have to remember the context. To be fair to Rodgers, he went on to say that there is “no point” in him coming back if he doesn’t think he can win it all, thus proving Gronk’s point about a Super Bowl mattering more in the end.
Now, do we know Rodgers cares more about a Super Bowl than he does winning another MVP? That we do not.
Rodgers’ attitude and personality is one that’s been in question by many, especially over the last couple of years, so it’s certainly in the realm of possibilities for the veteran quarterback to feel stronger about winning an MVP than a Super Bowl.
For the sake of Gronk’s argument, maybe Rodgers should have simply stuck to the point in regards to winning another Super Bowl.
