Rodgers isn’t 38 in football years.
Remember, he didn’t play his first three years. He was behind Brett Favre. So that’s three more years of punishment that AR didn’t experience. His level of play hasn’t fallen off. That’s a good sign.
His age doesn't bother me. He's good for another 5 years, if he doesn't suffer catastrophic injury.
Speaking of which, in the last ten seasons, he's missed eight games. All eight of those missed games were in 2019, due to a back injury. He was back and looked fine physically in 2020. (I think there's a feeling that Stafford misses games all the time, is hurt all the time, etc. Not sure where that comes from.) He was producing well before he got hurt, and had started something like 130 games in a row.
The Lions having a losing culture doesn't influence my thoughts on Stafford.
We'll see what happens, but I hope the rumors are true and the Colts are able to get this done. It would likely bring some stability to the QB position for the first time in six years, and it would allow the front office to keep building the roster with an eye toward the future.
