Joe Flacco is a Hall of Famer

Aaron Rodgers' confident saying and the return of Joe Flacco

With 1214 passing yards and a pass rate of 70.5 percent, Aaron Rodgers is after four NFL games this season - and is currently in the top 5. His 13 touchdown passes are only surpassed by the equally outstanding Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks (16). In short: "A-Rod" shows again what it can do. The 36-year-old Super Bowl winner from 2010/11 (31:25 against Pittsburgh) recently also missed athletes such as top receiver Davante Adams or pass recipient Allen Lazard. So be it: Rodgers then just threw five TD passes to the currently thriving tight end Robert Tonyan, who had trained with 49ers star George Kittle in the past.

"I just want to improve every day - and then of course you have Aaron Rodgers. That is not too bad," the 26-year-old Tonyan said last - and thus reveals what the media and NFL experts are currently increasingly talking about give: The Packers quarterback is far from over, the two-time NFL MVP (2011 & 2014) still has something to do in his long and successful career.

The future Hall-of-Famer has now made it publicly clear that Rodgers, who is still completely without interception in this regular season, does not take it too seriously with critics who have blamed him for a decline in performance or a diva-like attitude in recent years. In the "Pat McAfee Show" of the former star punter of the Indianapolis Colts (2009-2016), the playmaker Green Bays, connected via Facetime, said: "I sometimes laugh when people talk about me about bad years because many of these so-called 'down- Years' are career highs for most quarterbacks for me.
