I think competing next year will definitely be in the thought process,” he explained. “I think one of the important things for me is to want to be a loser on the road to play and still be able to play.” Rodgers has delivered a strong season for Green Bay so far, scoring 33 touchdowns and 3,689 yards in recent weeks — so it’s clear his performance remains on par.
“If this year has taught me anything, it’s that I can still play, I still love the game where I’m still very competitive and I still enjoy the process of the week,” Rodgers noted. “I miss training and it’s tough not being able to go out there, week in, week out. But I still love to play and I love being out there. ”

The things I’ve said about the team this year, about (general manager) Brian (Gutekunst) and my relationship are so heartfelt and sincere and I appreciate a lot of the things I’ve seen from the team that are directly involved. continued to the conversations we had during the season, and that means a lot to me. “Only time will tell what he decides.
