RODGERS - NFL MVP 2020 season (& other prior seasons)
Career Super Bowl wins: one
Packers made playoffs most of the time with Rodgers as QB.
First round playoff record: 7 wins 3 losses
Winning 70% of career first round playoff games is considered really good.
Rodgers is stuck in Green Bay, and strongly disagrees with management about various issues. He probably wants to be traded (hopefully to Broncos).
Many people have heard that Rodgers doesn't speak to many family members. It's an estranged situation. The reason seems to essentially be religion. The 2 sides are not on speaking terms.
Rodgers was raised in a devout Christian home. They were strict and serious about the religion. For Aaron, weekly church meetings were "incredibly lacking in meaning." For many friends growing up, church was something where "you just had to go" even if you didn't like it or benefit.
Rodgers questioned Christianity. “I don’t know how you can believe in a God who wants to condemn most of the planet to a fiery hell,” he said. “What type of loving, sensitive, omnipresent, omnipotent being wants to condemn his beautiful creation to a fiery hell at the end of all this?”
Aaron enjoyed questioning things, and learning about a variety of belief systems and lifestyles. He was impressed with volunteer groups (sometimes associated with religion) who actually went around to places and helped out poor and sick people who really needed help.
As Rodgers expressed honest opinions about most forms of organized religion, his family was fuming. They essentially wanted him to keep quiet about his beliefs and disbeliefs, and they wanted him to never say a negative thing about Christianity or church meetings. They wanted to muzzle him, but he's a smart, famous, wealthy sports star.
Hyper-religious people often have a real hard time when their religion is criticized (applies to Mormons, many types of Christians, Scientology, and many things around the globe).
