The Chicago Bears were ousted from the postseason back in the wild-card round, but Sunday felt like a win for Bears fans as the Green Bay Packers were dealt another NFC Championship loss, this one a 31-26 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

That leaves quarterback Aaron Rodgers with a 1-4 record in NFC Championship games, which includes back-to-back NFC title losses in as many years.

While there’s no denying that Rodgers is a Hall-of-Fame talent — even Bears fans will acknowledge that — he also hasn’t been able to win the big postseason games for as many times as he’s been there.

In five appearances, Rodgers has as many NFC Championship wins as former beleaguered Bears quarterback Rex Grossman. Let that sink in.

With Sunday’s loss to the Bucs, Rodgers became the first quarterback in NFL history to lose four straight NFC Championship Games. His lone NFC title win came against the Bears back in 2010 — where he bested the likes of Jay Cutler, Todd Collins and Caleb Hanie in a 21-14 win. The Packers would go on to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

Following Sunday’s loss, Rodgers sounded uncertain about what his future holds beyond this year. While Rodgers is signed through 2023, there has been speculation that he and Green Bay could part ways. The Packers drafted quarterback Jordan Love in the first round with the intention being for him to succeed Rodgers.
