After an offseason packed full 0f suspense, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers seems ready to put his best foot forward for the Packers organization in 2021.
During a post-practice press conference on Thursday afternoon, the reigning league MVP gave his expectations heading into the season: Super Bowl-or-bust.
“It’s Titletown. It’s championship or disappointment, like it’s been every year,” Rodgers said when asked about his team’s goals, per Packers insider Ryan Wood.
Aaron Rodgers isn’t shying away from Super Bowl-or-bust expectations: “It’s Titletown. It’s championship or disappointment, like it’s been every year.”

Rodgers and the Green Bay franchise have made it to the conference championship game in each of the past two seasons, failing to get over the hump on both occasions. This past season, the Packers fell to the eventual Super Bowl-champion Buccaneers in a 26-31 loss. The year before that, Rodgers was unable to lead his team to victory in a 20-37 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
The last time the Packers earned a Super Bowl appearance was back in 2011 when Rodgers led his squad to a 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers — claiming his first of three league MVP trophies along the way.
Quite a bit has changed since then. While the three-time All-Pro QB is still performing at an elite level, his contention with the Green Bay organization seems to be at an all-time high.
That being said, Rodgers and the Packers franchise will look to put their differences aside to chase a common goal this coming season.
