I know what you’re thinking Packer fans. Another Favre hater placing the blame on Brett for what he did to divide Packer nation. I loved Brett Favre on the field. Off the field, maybe not so much. That’s another blog for another day. What I mean by being Favred again? Brett Favre in his hall of fame career went to two Super Bowls. Or are we doomed to repeat it with Rodgers? I will focus on the chances of Aaron Rodgers winning multiple Superbowls as quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.
First, let me take you back to the glory days of the late 90’s. We’ll skip the playoff games against the Dallas Cowboys. It’s 1997 and the Green Bay Packers are World Champions. Life is good. Packer fans rule the NFL world. We have the best quarterback, general manager, and coach in the NFL. Dreams of the Lombardi’s 1960’s Green Bay Packers play in the minds of Packer fans everywhere. This team is not only going to repeat, but three peat. The football experts think the Packers can. So, it must be true.
We flash forward to Super bowl XXXII against the Denver Broncos. Vegas has the Green Bay Packers as heavy favorites to win. The players and coaches are confident, loose, and ready to hoist another Lombardi trophy. Heck, I was ready to pop the champagne before the game even started. At the end of the game the champagne didn’t pop, it burst. We had been out coached, outplayed in every facet of the game. That’s all right Packer fans we still had the best quarterback, general manager, and coach in the NFL. We’ll win another Super bowl, right?
