I just hope he gets respect if he wins this year in the playoffs. But I still think people are going to be "Easy schedule. They won because so and so." And I really hope the talks don't go to "They won a playoff game but they need to win a superbowl before we can take them serious."
Yup it was the same with Aaron Rodgers. Lost his first trip to the playoffs nd people kept saying "Aaron Rodgers can't win a playoff game." AFTER HIS FIRST TRY. Then 2010 comes and he beat the Eagles in the wild card, and then it was "OK, now let's see him do it again." Beat the Falcons. "OK, well he has to win a Super Bowl now." Did that. "Let's see him repeat" like repeating is something that's so easy and common. It's fu*kin hard to repeat in the NFL, but they will still try to act like what they did wasn't impressive.
So after they prove em wrong, Rodgers and the Packers are held to an ungodly standard. "What's wrong with Aaron Rodgers" at the beginning of this season when he was throwing 2-3 touchdowns a game with no interceptions.
Just how it is.
