It feels like Aaron Rodgers is more of a Dr. Seuss fellow right?
Anyone who has a problem with the Packers rise to success after an offseason of criticism can thank Aaron Rodgers and his resurgent season. The 37-year-old rebounded after mixed reviews in 2019, putting the team on his shoulder he continues to set new personal best for himself each week.
On Saturday, Rodgers became the first player in NFL history to throw for 40-plus touchdowns in three different seasons. Naturally, he’s aged like a fine cabernet thanks basking over an warm fireplace.
Much like a revival in 2020, Rodgers is a man of knowledge and intellectual style. In fact, some would consider him a living legend of our time for his throws on the gridiron and he mysterious personal life behind closed doors.
When it comes to reading though, Rodgers looks to be a fan of classics. A nice day in a chair catching up on 1984, The Great Gatsby or even Of Mice of Men all seem more to his nature.
Aaron Rodgers says he re-reads The Alchemist every couple years.

None of those is his favorite book. In fact, how many of you actually have ever read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho before?
A distinct taste in books, a distinct taste in play
According to quick cliff notes, The Alchemist follows a shepherd in his journey to the pyramids of Egypt, with hopes that his dreams will lead him to buried treasure. Could that be an epiphany on Rodgers’ NFL career?
Since being snubbed the No.1 pick in 2005, Rodgers has been on a mission to prove he’s worthy of becoming one of the greats. A Super Bowl, plus two MVP trophies later, he’s proved his name will forever one day be enshrined in Canton, Ohio among the other wonder pocket-passers.
Other quarterbacks around his age are slowly calling it careers. Meanwhile, Rodgers could outduel Tom Brady for the longest-tenured quarterback in league history should he keep this up.
Meanwhile, The Alchemist is such a cool nickname. Maybe Rodgers should go by that in the back end of his career?
