The Green Bay Packers finished the season the same way they started it: With big disappointment.
Matt LaFleur’s team failed to win out and clinch the final playoff spot in the NFC, dropping a must-win game at home to the Detroit Lions.
“When Aaron Rodgers says ‘the carousel stops and you kind of know,’ think about the last three times he’s walked off of Lambeau Field. He’s walked off a loser, and he’s walked off as a quarterback who couldn’t elevate his team,” Clark said. “When you’re one of the all-time greats, one of the best to ever touch a football, you have to think to yourself, It’s not about ‘Can I do it in the regular season?’ it’s not about ‘If I’m good enough to take snaps.’ It’s about if ‘Am I still good enough to win championships’?”
There’s no denying that Rodgers is one of the most talented gunslingers in the history of the game, at least talent-wise.
But his shortcomings when it matters the most have also been an evident trend, and he’s making way too much money for that at this point in his career.
So, as great as he is, one can only wonder whether he’s what the Packers need at this age and with that salary.
Maybe, they’ll be better off without each other.
