“I’m feeling great,” Rodgers said. “I’m back to my workouts. I was playing golf on Wednesday out in Scottsdale in the pro am, so if I can do that, you know I’m feeling pretty good.”
According to Rodgers, he won’t have any limitations next season and he’ll be ready for offseason workouts.
“Oh no, not at all,” he said. “I’m back into everything I like to do in the offseason with my training, and I’ll be ready to go when we’re back in April.”
Rodgers says he fully expects to have the Packers back in the playoffs next year, even though there are obvious areas where they need to improve.
“I would say to Packer Nation don’t get used to not watching your team in January, because it’s not going to be like that after this little aberration,” Rodgers said. “I think what it’s going to take is us to be more consistent in all the phases.
“We have to play championship defense. You look at the final four, all were up at the top in defensive categories. We have to get back to playing that kind of defense. Offensively, we have to get back to what we were doing in ’11. Thankfully the guy who was offensive coordinator in ’11 is back, Joe Philbin.”
