The Green Bay Packers playoff season that almost never was ended far too soon for QB Aaron Rodgers and company. Rodgers went 17 f0r 26 for 177 with a TD and no interceptions, not bad numbers but Rodgers is frustrated none the less.
“Frustrating way to end the season,” Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I think a lot of us felt with the way things had gone the last four or five weeks that there was something special about this year, and everything might be aligning right for us to make a run. So, I’m very disappointed. Personally, it’s frustrating not to play your best game. Tough conditions, but the defense held them to 23 points. We should win that game.”
“It’s frustrating,” Rodgers said. “I think you have to start with yourself, and I could have definitely made a few more plays. That’s why it’s disappointing. These opportunities are pretty special, and you’ve got to make the most of them. It’s been nine years for me now. [I’ve been] blessed to play that long and would love to play another nine if possible. But this is an opportunity we let slip through our fingers.”-ProFootballTalk.com
Rodgers should be credited for not pointing fingers. It’s unfortunate for him but Colin Kaepernick played at a level that was nearly impossible to beat.
