Aaron Rodgers recalls seeing his last Michael Jordan game

SHARE Aaron Rodgers recalls seeing his last Michael Jordan game

Following Sunday’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Scott Tolzien compared Aaron Rodgers to NBA legend Michael Jordan.

After a five touchdown performance with no interceptions on Monday Night Football, it’s hard to argue with him.

While Rodgers wouldn’t address any similarities between his game and MJ’s, the league’s highest rated passer recalled the last time he saw Jordan play live.

From ESPN:

I think something inside him felt he wanted to put on a show every time he went out, because there was somebody in the stadium that hadn’t seen him play before, Rodgers recalled after he completed 24 of 35 passes for 333 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 138.5. The last game that he played in Sacramento, I was in the top row, and it was kind of a late-addition ticket. He scored 33 points that night, and I was new to watching him live. I’d loved watching him on TV, but it was fun to watch him live. He always brought his A-game every night.

There are still many seasons for Rodgers to play in the NFL. He may never three-peat, but if any quarterback has ever had the talent to do so, it would be No. 12.
