The Packers have been to the playoffs in each of Bakhtiari’s four seasons but have failed to advance to the Super Bowl, and were eliminated in the NFC Championship Game last year by the Atlanta Falcons.
Bakhtiari, who has emerged as one of the NFL’s best left tackles, is growing impatient.
“It’s starting to (tick) me off a little bit,” Bakhtiari said via Pete Dougherty of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “You’re not guaranteed another year. Keep getting close and not making it is stressful. We’ve got to collectively – we’ve got to do more. … The Green Bay Packers – I mean, the trophy is the Lombardi Trophy. We have to get back there and win it.”
Led by one of the greatest quarterbacks of his generation in Aaron Rodgers, the Packers are always a threat to contend for the Lombardi Trophy. However, Bakhtiari is correct that the Packers’ core will have plenty of regrets if they are unable to capitalize on their immense talent.
