Silver: The Toast of Titletown
Aaron Rodgers is becoming an NFL icon, but the QB's path to greatness hasn't been paved in gold. Michael Silver explains. READ
During his weekly radio appearance on ESPN Radio, Rodgers summed up Green Bay's January shortcomings in a succinct manner.
Solid numbers, yes, but nothing close to his production during Green Bay's run to the Super Bowl in the 2010 season. In those four playoff wins, Rodgers completed 68.2 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns, two interceptions and a passer rating of 109.8.
Still, Rodgers makes no excuses for his play.
"I have high expectations every time I take the field and I think most people do of me, and that's how I want it," he said. "The bar has been set high and nobody's going to apologize for setting it, and I'm not sorry for the bar being up there. I love an expectation of greatness because that's what I expect of myself every time I take the field, and I know my teammates expect me to play well."
