After a crushing 31-26 loss in the NFC Championship game on Sunday, Aaron Rodgers called his Green Bay future into question with some inflammatory post-game comments.

Whether his statements were genuine or made in a fit of passion remains to be seen -- but, one thing is for sure. The veteran QB doesn't care what you think about his future.

">The Pat McAfee Show. "I can't care any less about speculation. I don't think people are used to hearing the truth from athletes." In reference to his post-game comments, Rodgers made sure to clarify that he meant no one's job is guaranteed in the NFL.

It's easy to be sent into a speculation frenzy when a star player like Aaron Rodgers makes the comments that he did.

But, it looks like we can pump the brakes on this topic -- at least for now.
