Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers has revealed his disappointment at the playoff heartache suffered at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, but has backed his team to mount a serious championship challenge for the next four or five seasons, reports

The 30-year-old quarterback believes that Mike McCarthy's team have the foundations to succeed for the next several years, despite the fact that there are currently 17 unrestricted free agents on the Packers roster.

"It's the end of a window and the beginning of a new one," Rodgers said. "We can open up a window that lasts four or five years.

"This window has a chance to open up and be really bright for four, five years. My contract is for six more years and I expect to be playing well all six."

Rodgers reflected on the "unfortunate" 23-20 defeat at Lambeau Field, in the first round of the playoffs at the weekend, but said that it remained one of the "proudest years" he's been a part of in Wisconsin, particularly given the Packers' slew of injury problems.

He also remained "frustrated" by his individual performance against the 49ers, even though he completed 17 of 26 passes for 177 yards, with a touchdown and no interceptions.
