It was a joyous occasion on Wednesday night at the ESPY Awards when Green Bay Packers gunslinger Aaron Rodgers won the NFL's Best Player award for the fourth time in his career.

But he also couldn't escape answering a question about how his squad hasn't got the job done since its magical Super Bowl season in 2011. 

A reporter on the ESPYs red carpet asked the 33-year-old what else is left to accomplish for him.

"Well, we need to win some more Super Bowls to satisfy our fans," said Rodgers. "The team we've put together over the years, we've come up a little short. So we gotta get ourselves back to that situation, like last year, where were in the game that we're in and we gotta take care of business."

Rodgers and the Packers were eliminated from the 2016 playoffs when they lost to the Atlanta Falcons 44-21 in the NFC Championship game in Georgia. 

Speaking of Georgia, on a lighter note, Rodgers said his favourite part of the night was being beside the much taller NBA stars and his "main man," Georgian NBA player Zaza Pachulia.
