Rob Gronkowski Says Aaron Rodgers Should Be Focused On Super Bowls, Not MVPs: “Bro, Why Are You Thinking About MVPs?”


The Green Bay Packers’ season came to an end at the hands of the Detroit Lions, when they had to win to make the playoffs.

They didn’t…

Now that the season is over, there has been a ton of talk about where quarterback Aaron Rodgers may end up.

The Packers may be ready to part ways with their starting quarterback of 15 years, and give the reins to backup quarterback Jordan Love and start new beginnings.

Their are others saying that Rodgers is ready to get out, and find a new team to lead. And who knows, maybe even stay in Green Bay and try to win another Super Bowl with the Packers.

Although there is no confirmation about what the future may hold for Rodgers and the Packers organization, the 39-year-old still believes there are some good years ahead of him before retirement.

In fact, he thinks he still has an MVP left in him.

He said in his latest appearance on the Pat McAfee Show:

“I think I can win MVP again in the right situation. Right situation, is that Green Bay or is that somewhere else? I’m not sure.

But I don’t think you should shut down any opportunity. Like I said during the season, that’s got to be both sides actually wanting to work together moving forward, and I think there’s more conversations to be had.”

However, the whole “MVP” thing didn’t sit right with one future Hall of Fame NFL player…

And it’s none other than retired star tight end for the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Rob Gronkowski.

He made an appearance on the Up & Adams Show, and said:

“I’m totally fine with everything he said except one major part, and that’s the ‘MVP again. It should say, ‘I think I can win another Super Bowl.’ That would’ve been totally fine.

“Bro, why are you thinking MVP? Don’t you want Super Bowls? Super Bowls are I think five times greater than an MVP award.

Like we all know you’ve won the MVP a few times now, but like, everyone would know how many more Super Bowls you’ve won, than MVPs.”

I mean, he has a very fair point there.

And Gronk knows a thing or two about winning Super Bowls…. the man has four of them.

That being said, in the world of clips and sound bites, let’s get the full story, because Rodgers response here was in regards to a question specifically asked about his own physical ability at this age.

And then at another point in the hour-long conversation, Rodgers DID in fact say that he wouldn’t be back if he didn’t think they could win it all.

“There’s no point in coming back to play football unless you think you can win it all.” 

In the grand scheme of things, it sounds like Aaron thinks he can still play at an MVP-caliber level, AND that if he can’t win a Super Bowl, there is no reason to play.

In the full context of the conversation, Aaron isn’t picking MVPs over Super Bowls, it’s both.


Nevertheless, we’ll see what next season holds for the future Hall of Famer.
