Former NFL star and current football analyst Bart Scott thinks Aaron Rodgers will never again win a Super Bowl as a member of the Green Bay Packers. After the 2020 season, Rodgers took some time to consider his next move. Eventually, Rodgers decided to return to the Packers.
The Packers made the divisional round, in which they were beaten by the San Francisco 49ers. After the 2021 season, Rodgers again took some time to decide his next move. Again, Rodgers decided to return to the Packers. So far this season, the Packers are 3-5 and have looked far from being a legit Super Bowl contender.
Scott: 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo owns Rodgers
“I think it closed as soon as San Francisco decided to bring Jimmy G back. Aaron Rodgers always says he owns the Bears — Jimmy G owns him. That’s a bigger story, right? Everyone else in the NFC has gotten better, and we thought this defense [for the Packers] was going to be elite and be able to win a different way, running the football and tremendous defense," Scott said on ESPN's Get Up.
Meanwhile, Rodgers has struggled since losing All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams.

After Adams decided to leave the Packers this past offseason, some were concerned about how would the Packers' offense look without Adams. So far, it hasn't been looking great. Also, the Packers didn't make any notable moves prior to the trade deadline to address their offensive struggles.
Rodgers, who wanted the Packers to make some moves, was asked about the Packers' quiet trade deadline. “Brian [Gutekunst] didn't think whatever was out there was worth whatever was required of what was given up.
That just sends a message to us that we've got to play with the guys we've got and win with the guys we've got," Rodgers said. This Sunday, the Packers are playing the Detroit Lions on the road.
