Aaron Rodgers made it clear he would have a problem if the Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst or interim coach Joe Philbin decided to play backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the final two games of the NFL regular season.

The Packers’ chances of making the playoffs officially ended after their 24-17 loss the Chicago Bears, who claimed the National Football Conference (NFC) North division title with the win. There are still two more games to go for the conclusion of the regular season and Rodgers had no interest in sitting back.

The Packers quarterback was keen to see out the remainder of season for the Packers despite their elimination, stating, as quoted on ESPN: "I'd like to be out there and lead us the last two weeks," before answering in the affirmative when asked if he would have a problem if asked to sit out in order to give Kizer a run, saying: “Yeah probably.”

The Packers’ playoff hopes were not the only thing to come to an end Sunday against the Bears as Rodgers NFL-record streak of 402 passes without an interception also ended in the fourth quarter of the game.

The interception came as he attempted his 35th pass of the night when a throw to the end zone was tipped into the hands of Bears safety Eddie Jackson. It was only recently that Rodgers broke Tom Brady’s record of 358 passes without an interception.

Rodgers, however, was not too concerned about his streak coming to an end and was hoping to start a new one. The Packers quarterback was more concerned about his team’s lack of ability to complete big plays and believed that was the reason for the poor numbers during the course of what has been a disappointing campaign.

"That's part of the game," Rodgers added. "I've had two interceptions in however many attempts. I feel pretty good about the way I've taken care of the football this season.”

“We just haven't made enough big plays over the year. That's why the completion percentage is what it is and yards per attempt is what it is and touchdowns are where they're at, so that stuff's disappointing. I've had interception streaks in the past. I had a long one at home -- 500-plus. Hopefully, I'll start a new one."

Meanwhile, the Packers are continuing their search for a new head coach after parting ways with Mike McCarthy following their loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14. They are not allowed to talk to currently employed coaches in the NFL at the moment but reports suggest talks were taking place via the back channels.

While current interim coach Philbin is a candidate for the full-time head coach job, there were a number of other candidates being put forward including New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. One thing is clear when it comes to the new coach – he would have to be offensively minded in order to bring the best out of Rodgers.
