Aaron Rodgers has never lacked for confidence. That's part of what makes him one of the greatest to ever play the game. But Rodgers' swagger appears to understandably be at an all-time high right now.
Take a look at this awesome sound bite he dropped during his weekly interview on the Pat McAfee Show.
When asked about how he handles criticism, Rodgers responded:
I sometimes laugh when people talk about down years for me, because a lot of times down years for me are career years for most quarterbacks.- Aaron Rodgers
The quote prompts McAfee to absolutely lose his mind for the camera. That reaction is probably indicative of how all Green Bay Packers fans are feeling right now, though, because Rodgers is playing some of the best football of his career.
The future Hall-of-Fame quarterback has thrown for 1,214 yards with 13 touchdowns to zero interceptions while posting an outrageous 128.4 passer rating and a 93.2 QBR. He ranks top-five in the NFL in each of those categories, and he actually sits top-two in each of those aside from passing yards. Most importantly, Green Bay is off to a perfect 4-0 start heading into the Week 5 bye.
Expect to hear Rodgers flex a bit more often if he maintains this insane 4,856-yard, 52-TD, zero-INT pace the rest of the way.
The gunslinger currently boasts the third-best odds (+450) to win the NFL MVP, and his Packers have the fourth-best Super Bowl odds (+1100), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
