Rodgers talks on the red carpet

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers walked the red carpet at the NFL Honors awards ceremony Saturday afternoon and stopped to talk to the media. He was asked what the last few weeks after the playoff loss has been like? “It’s different. Would like to be playing tomorrow. It’s been busy. I’m working for NBC tomorrow. So I had rehearsals all day.” “Settling into the offseason. You start to think about the things you accomplished. It’s still disappointing. It’s tough to watch the games. But I’m a fan first, so I’ve been watching the games and wishing we were playing. The offseason begins here for me, really, next week. I’ll be busy and have other things on my mind. At some point I’ll reflect on the season we had and have some pride in that.” On being up for MVP: “It’s exciting. It really is. To be recognized would be an incredible thing. A great honor. And, we’ll see what happens.” On what he was thinking when drafted: “Probably wishing I was wishing was anywhere else than in that Green Room with a camera on me. It was the best thing to happen to me. A tough day. A good humbling experience that I needed. But I had a lot of friends and family with me to make the day enjoyable. Ended up getting picked by a great team and the rest is history.” Advice to Standford’s Andrew Luck, who’s expected to be the No. 1 overall pick: “Stay at home.” What made the season for him? “Doing some things in Green Bay that hadn’t happened in a long time. We accomplished a lot. We won a lot of games in a row. Hadn’t been a 15 game win season in Green Bay. A lot of really good things we did, just came up short in the playoffs.” Advice to a rookie QB: “There’s so much you learn from the first couple seasons. I had the opportunity to sit, which gives you an even better perspective. The best thing a quarterback can have in my opinion is confidence. The advice I’d give a young quarterback, is don’t let the mistakes and frustration, don’t lose confidence. You’ll look back in three years and realize you don’t even know what you were doing as a rookie. By the time you start figuring it out, things turn around.”
