Rodgers didn’t want to let Packers down

Newly anointed Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers was one of the guests on the set of NFL GameDay Final to discuss the Packers’ win.

Rodgers, who capped a phenomenal postseason — he had the second-most passing yards in a single postseason in NFL history (1,094) — with his MVP performance against the Steelers, offered a candid response on what changed for him following his late-season concussion.

“I missed the game,” Rogers told Rich Eisen. “I really did. I missed the guys. I missed playing at a high level and winning. We were 8-6 at the time, we knew we could win out and make the playoffs. I just said, ‘I’m not going to be the reason that we miss out on this opportunity. I’m going to make sure I’m the most prepared guy. I’m going to make sure I bring energy and enthusiasm, (and) practice habits every day to the field. I’m going to make sure on Sunday and keep my end of the bargain.'”

Rodgers did just that on Sunday night.
