The 2010-2011 Magical Season
In 2010, Aaron Rodgers exceeded IK-SEED-ED [to go beyond in quantity, degree, rate, etc.] all expectations, and once again led the Packers to the playoffs. The Packers beat the Eagles in the Wild Card, followed by an upset win in Atlanta versus the Falcons. They went onto play their divisional rival, the Chicago Bears in the NFC Championship Game. The Packers won 21-14 and Rodgers was leading his team to the Superbowl in only his second year of professional play. Aaron could not believe how the season unfolded. He felt almost like a kid being told he was going on a trip to Disney World for the very first time.
Before he set out to play in his first Super Bowl championship game, Rodgers contacted one of his childhood friend's parents. He texted, "Thank you for being there for me throughout my life. Thank you for all the support. Love you. Can't wait to see you."
The Packers were challenged with a strong Pittsburgh Steelers team in the Super Bowl LXV. Yet, Aaron Rodgers worked his magic and took his team past the Steelers' defense to an impressive 35-21 victory. It was a celebrated moment in Packers history and also gave Aaron his first most valuable player (MVP) honor!
2011-2012 & 2012-2013 Seasons
In the few years following Aaron Rodgers' Super Bowl win, Aaron provided strong offensive to his team but the team's overall defense was not good enough to put them back in Super Bowl contention. In fact, the Packers became known as the worst ranked defense in the NFL. However, Aaron Rodgers did not let that prevent him from motivating his team to play their best. He always calmed his team down and told them not to give up.
This period of Aaron's career was not so memorable for the team, but Aaron still managed to reach a new level of personal achievement. He broke an NFL passing record, with a 104.9 passer rating!
