Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was interviewed on a local sports talk radio show in San Diego on Wednesday July 21 where he discussed the team’s goal of winning the NFC North, and eventually the Super Bowl.
There’s always expectations in Green Bay. I don’t care if people pick us to win or not. Our fans expect us to win a Super Bowl every year. We’ve fallen short in my two years as a starter. We need to get back to winning division titles and having home games in the winter time in Green Bay because that’s where it starts. People say, ‘Oh, your goal is the Super Bowl?’ Every year that is the ultimate goal. But, first and foremost, our goal is to win the division, because we if we have a home game in the playoffs in Green Bay, it’s going to be tough for our opponent.
Any team’s goal is obviously to earn home-field advantage, but the confines of Lambeau Field haven’t exactly been overly intimidating for opponents over the past several seasons. The Packers have lost three of their last five home playoff games dating back to the 2002 season.
