Packers’ Davante Adams fuels burning desire to win Super Bowl with Aaron Rodgers’ GOAT case
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams knew in himself that Super Bowl titles have already become the ultimate measure of a player’s greatness, especially at the quarterback position.
His teammate in veteran playmaker Aaron Rodgers has also been leading the team all throughout their season just for them to have a deep playoff run this time around. Adams wanted to return the favor and will do whatever he can to give Rodgers a shot at his second Super Bowl title in a bid to strengthen his case in the GOAT conversation.
“We all want it equally for ourselves, which ends up getting Aaron one in the end, but he deserves it,” Adams said via ESPN. “It’s a tough thing. You look at [Tom] Brady and everybody wants to make that comparison forever, but it’s basically turned into a quarterback stat — Super Bowls.”
“If that’s what it’s going to be, then we’re going to put as much as we can on ourselves to try to help him get there and, ultimately, relieve him of the Super Bowls being a thing that hinder him from being the GOAT. In my mind, he’s the GOAT, regardless of how many Super Bowl are won, [but] we can go out there and get one for him.”
Rodgers has successfully proved that he still has a lot left in the tank even after the Packers selected his likely replacement in rookie quarterback Jordan Love in the 2020 NFL Draft. He still managed to improve his overall game even while playing in his 16th campaign in the league.
The two-time NFL MVP recently concluded the regular season with tallies of 4,299 passing yards along with a league-best 48 touchdowns in 16 games played. His solid play under center carried the Packers to a 12-3 record and a win away from another Super Bowl appearance.
However, getting to hoist the Lombardi Trophy won’t be easy for the team as they will need to get past a stacked Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad in the NFC Championship Game. Davante Adams’ eagerness to give his quarterback a much-deserved shot at another title will hopefully be enough for the Packers to grab the all-important win on Sunday.
