‘Down years for me are career years for most quarterbacks’

Aaron Rodgers is oozing all kinds of confidence after Monday’s victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

The Green Bay Packers superstar tossed four touchdown passes in the win, and just for good measure, he added a funny/silly/dry-humored flex to the “Showtime Cam” after he threw Robert Tonyan one of his three scores. Everything’s coming up Rodgers right now.

Then, there’s this flex that’s not literal: he spoke to Pat McAfee on Tuesday and was asked about his improvement from last year.

His response: “It does help being in a second year [offense] for sure, I feel a lot more comfortable. But … I sometimes laugh when people talk about down years for me, ’cause a lot of times down years for me are career years for most quarterbacks”

FLEX!

By the way, he’s right! He amassed 4,002 yards, 26 touchdowns and just four interceptions. The completion percentage — 62.0 — wasn’t his best, but there are a lot of QBs out there who would kill for those numbers.
