Once all is done, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers knows he'll only be remembered for the number of Super Bowls he wins, no matter how many records he breaks.
The two-time NFL MVP knows that when it comes to those championships, there is still a lot of work to be done. He loves the stats, but he knows he won't be remembered for that, according to an interview with Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.
"The numbers are great. The stats are great because it means you've done some terrific things as an offense," Rodgers said. "But you're remembered by championships. I get that."

Every word of this sentence is true as countless times people have analysed the likes of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady and asked who's better. The majority would say the New England Patriots quarterback because he has won more Super Bowls.
Consistency of winning Super Bowls beats out consistency of beating records in a lot of people's mind, which is why Rodgers feels it's so important for him to win another one.
The four-time Pro Bowler is looking to join the elite club of only 11 quarterbacks that have achieved multiple Super Bowl wins.
This club includes Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana and Brady who have all won four Super Bowls. Also, Troy Aikman who won three, while Bart Starr, Roger Staubach, Bob Griese, Jim Plunkett, John Elway, Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning have won two each.
Rodgers was close to another Super Bowl appearance last season. His Packers just lost out against the Seattle Seahawks in a very close NFC Championship game that ended 22-28 in overtime at CenturyLink Field.
The rest of the Packers roster is fully behind Rodgers to lead them to their second Super Bowl in five seasons, and to add the 31-year-old as the twelfth member of the elite club of quarterbacks with multiple Super Bowl wins.
One of these players is Packers tight end Andrew Quarless, who was part of the Packers team that won the Super Bowl in the 2010 season.
He said: "He's the best player in football. "There's no doubt about that. If anyone can take us to where we want to go it's Aaron."
Rodgers will be entering next season off the back of his second MVP award, one which he earned for throwing for 4,381 yards, 38 touchdowns and five interceptions.
The NFC North should be a given as the Packers have won it back-to-back over the past four seasons.
The real challenge will be when the playoffs come around as they attempt to go one better than last year and reach the pinnacle of the season, in order to provide Rodgers with the opportunity to win multiple Super Bowls.
