Coming Sunday is far from the first season opener for Aaron Rodgers, but that doesn’t mean he’s still not nervous in the first week.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Rogers said he still has butterflies flying out of the tunnel, and if you don’t, it could be a problem.
“I think if you’re not nervous or you don’t have butterflies, maybe you’re doing something wrong,” the Packers QB said. “So I’ll be happy to see how I feel before the game.”
Rodgers says he likes being “under the microscope” and feeling the pressure he feels to perform at a high level.
Green Bay opens on the road against the Vikings in the “American Game of the Week.”
The 4:25 p.m. game will mark the 15th start of the season for the four-time MVP since he replaced Brett Favre in 2008.
