Surprisingly, Green Bay Packers superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers has only played in one Super Bowl during his Hall of Fame career. It came back in Super Bowl 45, where the Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers by a final score of 31-25.
Since that Super Bowl win, Rodgers and the Packers have lost in the Divisional Round and the NFC Championship Game three times each. For whatever reason, Green Bay has had trouble getting back to the Super Bowl despite having one of the greatest signal-callers in NFL history.
During the 2019 season, the Packers won 13 games in Matt LaFleur’s first year at the helm. Green Bay defeated the Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional Round but lost to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, 37-20.
In Year 2 under LaFleur, the Packers went 13-3 again. The team is motivated to not only get to the Super Bowl but win the whole thing and establish themselves as the best team in the NFL. Rodgers and Co. don’t need anything to get fired up, but the Packers’ most famous fan decided to get their juices flowing anyway.
The Packers finished 2020 with the best offense in the NFL
Led by Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, the Packers averaged 31.8 points per game during the 2020 season. They scored at least 40 points four times and only lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Minnesota Vikings, and Indianapolis Colts.
The Packers scored 509 points and gained 6,224 yards. The offense has zero flaws, which is why many pundits believe Green Bay will win the NFC this season and finally return to the Super Bowl. Rodgers is already an all-time great, but he needs to win one more Super Bowl since having only one under his belt is rather embarrassing given how talented he is.
Green Bay enters the playoffs on a six-game winning streak. The offense is clicking on all cylinders. The Packers averaged 33.5 points over their final six games against the Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers, and Tennessee Titans. Green Bay defeated Chicago twice during that span.
Kansas City Chiefs gunslinger Patrick Mahomes is universally recognized as the best quarterback in the NFL. However, there is no debating that Rodgers was the MVP in 2020.
Aaron Rodgers put up monster numbers in 2020
Aaron Rodgers started all 16 games for the Packers in 2020. He threw for 4,299 yards and 48 touchdowns while completing 70.7% of his passes. Rodgers only threw five interceptions and ran for three touchdowns as well.
A future first-ballot Hall of Famer, Rodgers led the NFL in passing touchdowns, passer rating, completion percentage, and QBR. He’s widely expected to win his third MVP award, but Rodgers doesn’t care about that. He wants to lead the Packers to another Lombardi Trophy.
It’s been incredible to watch Rodgers dominate the NFL for over a decade. Packers fans, who booed the California native during Family Night in 2008 when Rodgers took over for Brett Favre, know they are very fortunate to have watched Rodgers carve up defenses for so many years.
Since the Packers are one of the most famous franchises in sports, they have many celebrity fans. Green Bay’s biggest celebrity supporter is legendary rapper Lil Wayne, which is strange since he was born and raised in New Orleans.
With the Packers set to begin their quest for another Super Bowl, Lil Wayne decided to fire up the troops with a hot song.
Lil Wayne releases a new Green Bay hype song
Lil Wayne dropped a song called “Green & Yellow” for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, who will face the LA Rams in the Divisional Round. This is the second time Lil Wayne has released a Packers song.
Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., Lil Wayne’s real game, became a Packers fan when the team went to Super Bowl 31 against the New England Patriots in New Orleans. Green Bay won the game, and Lil Wayne’s father came back with Packers’ trinkets and apparel, which he fell in love with.
