Everyone knows that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
However, as well as he plays every Sunday for the Packers, he still has things to accomplish.
There are three things he can do to cement his legacy as one of the best quarterbacks in Green Bay history.
3. Win Another Super Bowl For Green Bay Before Retiring
Both critics and fans of the four-time MVP quarterback can tell you he chokes under pressure in the NFL playoffs.

However, he has one Super Bowl ring thanks to a Bears team who used a backup quarterback in the second half of the NFC Championship game.
That allowed him to reach the Super Bowl and defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers.
But since then, the NFC playoffs haven’t fared well for Rodgers.
He’s lost multiple times to the San Francisco 49ers in the playoffs since winning his only Super Bowl.
He also made poor decisions in the last minutes of a tight NFC Championship game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,
With him failing to bring what should have been multiple Super Bowl trophies to Green Bay, he must change that to cement his legacy.
If he doesn’t, his critics will continue to claim he is nothing more than a choke artist when in the playoffs.
2. Take A Different Direction Than Brett Favre
The legendary quarterback that came before Rodgers in Green Bay was Brett Favre.
However, Favre left the franchise for other teams.
While Favre wasn’t a draft product of Green Bay, he spent most of his career with the team.
But what pushed Favre away was Rodgers.
He didn’t enjoy having someone around that was a step away from replacing him.
Because of this, Favre was traded, but only after trying to reclaim his starting job from Rodgers.
He lost that job because he retired in March 2008, only to come back during training camp.
Rodgers is already on a somewhat similar path that Favre was on back then.
Aaron Rodgers career path really is the same as Brett Favre lol they both act the exact same way

However, he needs to change directions quickly, as he should remember what he went through with Packers fans in 2008.
1. Work With Jordan Love To Be The Best Replacement For Green Bay
Being a future Hall of Fame quarterback and a four-time MVP is clearly something few quarterbacks can ever do.
However, there’s one last thing Rodgers can do to cement his legacy in the NFL.
That is helping Jordan Love to become that elite quarterback in Green Bay when it’s his time.
For most quarterbacks, it’s hard to pass that torch to the next guy.
Favre had that problem in the past with Green Bay.
Rodgers can break that trend and rise above by working with Love, not against him.
Love is the future of the Green Bay Packers, or at least that’s what the franchise wanted him to be.
Rodgers can show this young quarterback everything he needs to know to be the next MVP and Super Bowl quarterback of Green Bay.
It would forever cement his legacy in NFL history.NEXT: Should Jordan Love Demand A Trade Out Of Green Bay?
