Job security. Everyone craves it, especially when the world feels upside down.
And nothing gives that stamp of approval like being widely considered the most talented in your industry, a proven winner, and the face of the company—or so I thought. Everything about surefire first-ballot Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ career with the Green Bay Packers has turned that notion on its head. Can you imagine being a Super Bowl Champion for one of the most iconic NFL franchises, a past recipient of the League’s MVP award, and an 8-time Pro Bowler, but still having critics doubt whether you can get the job done? Worse, imagine your own team being your biggest skeptic. That’s the life of a man who’s had to endure the cold winters on the frozen tundra of Green Bay’s Lambeau Field as well as the frigid support from Packers management.
