"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.
they got him at too high of a standard now, has the best numbers in the league, with the most inconsistent offensive lineup and STILL had the best numbers, yet he never even gets brought up in the mvp chatter cuz everyone's confusing the mvp with the comeback player of the year
sacked the most, by far the most dropped passes per attempt, a different 2 starting receivers in 9 diff games, no run game until pretty much the last month, 18th is pass attempts but still is second in tds and least amount of picks for guys who have started all the games, I could imagine what would've been if Jennings and jordy were healthy all season
