Saturday, after a stunning, too-soon, almost unceremonious 13-10 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers, Rodgers didn’t make any broad statements. He didn’t send any cryptic messages or make any allusions to his “Last Dance.”
Aaron Rodgers, simply raw with emotion, said it was too soon to make any decisions.
The 38-year-old quarterback, likely about to win his second consecutive MVP, fell short as a top seed again at home. For the second time in his career, he failed to throw a touchdown pass in a playoff game.
“I don’t want to be part of a rebuild if I’m going to keep playing, so a lot of decisions in the next couple months.”
In his 17 seasons in Green Bay, Rodgers has become the franchise’s all-time leader in passing touchdowns and countless other statistics. But like his predecessor, Brett Favre, he hasn’t been able to get over the hump to a second Lombardi Trophy, as the ultimate prize continues to be elusive for the Green & Gold.
