Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is making sure ahead of the new season that the rest of the NFC North remembers who is the boss.

The Packers are in the hunt for a fourth consecutive division title in 2022. There is some optimism among other teams that they might be able to break that streak, particularly with Green Bay losing Davante Adams during the offseason. The Minnesota Vikings are the team most prominently named as a serious contender to dethrone the Packers.

Rodgers sent a bit of a warning on Wednesday to his potential challengers. He pointed out that it is not uncommon for other teams to believe the Packers are about to fade. Rodgers noted that things rarely play out that way.

Rodgers is definitely sending a message. The Packers won their first NFC North title with Rodgers as quarterback in 2011, which began a run of eight division championships in 11 seasons. The quarterback is making it quite clear that he intends to make that nine in 12 years, no matter what anyone else thinks.

There have been some worrying signs for the Green Bay offense in the preseason, so it makes sense that some are down on the Packers. However, betting against Rodgers might not necessarily be a wise move.
