Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady go at it again this Sunday when the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers face for a spot in the Super Bowl LV. This game will present more than one interesting reason to watch it and the main one will be the duel between two of the best quarterbacks in the league.
This is going to be the Super Bowl dream match we never had and every NFL fan will be waiting for this duel between two of the best to ever do it in league history. Of course, everybody wants to know what they think about their upcoming matchup, just like it happened between TB12 and Drew Brees last week.
This time, it was Rodgers who talked about Brady, giving props to the Bucs’ quarterback and all the things he’s done during his career. The 43-year-old isn’t showing any sign of slowing down and that is a big challenge for A-Rod.
Aaron Rodgers says he’s always been a fan of Tom Brady
Talking to the media, Rodgers had nothing but good things to say about Brady, even claiming he’s been a fan of the 199th pick in the 2000 NFL draft.
“Obviously, Tom has had an amazing career. His legacy is one of so many wins and so many accomplishments. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time. Enjoyed the few times we’ve gotten to play,” Rodgers said.
Rodgers also added that he was looking forward to meeting Brady in the postseason as soon as he heard the news of Brady joining the Buccaneers on a two-year deal after spending the first 19 years of his career with the New England Patriots.
“I remember when I heard the news about him coming to the NFC, I thought this was a real possibility. And I’m excited about the opportunity to play against him again.”
“As a kid you dream about playing in Super Bowls, playing in big games. What it would feel like, to get the opportunity to play Division One Football was a huge dream of mine,” Rodgers said.
“I remember the first moment I stepped on that field as a starter. It’s a special, special feeling. And it’s the same feeling you get when you step on the field at the start of your NFL career.”
A-Rod is very excited to meet Brady once again, especially after their prior meeting this season didn’t go as well as expected for the Packers in Week 6 of the 2020/21 NFL season. Now it’s time for revenge and Rodgers is ready for it, as the Packs are very close to the Super Bowl.
