Aaron Rodgers said that he was “very disappointed” with the playoff loss, as the Green Bay Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers for the fourth times in a row.
Rodgers, considered one of the best quarterbacks in the league, said that it was a”frustrating way to end the season.”
I think a lot of us felt with the way things had gone the last four or five weeks that there was something special about this year, and everything might be aligning right for us to make a run,” he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“So, I’m very disappointed. Personally, it’s frustrating not to play your best game. Tough conditions, but the defense held them to 23 points. We should win that game.”
Rodgers was out for seven weeks during the season because of a broken collarbone.
He completed 17 of 26 passes and threw a touchdown, and didn’t throw an interception, but it wasn’t quite enough in the 23-20 loss.
A final drive where Rodgers and the Packers were at the nine-yard line netted just a field goal, tying it at 20-20, with the 49ers then driving and kicking a last-second field goal.
“I think you have to start with yourself, and I could have definitely made a few more plays. That’s why it’s disappointing. These opportunities are pretty special, and you’ve got to make the most of them,” Rodgers said.
“It’s been nine years for me now. (I’ve been) blessed to play that long and would love to play another nine if possible. But this is an opportunity we let slip through our fingers.”
