Aaron Rodgers believes that the Green Bay Packers are tough enough to win the league, despite claims that the team are "soft".

Aaron Rodgers has refuted claims that the Green Bay Packers are not a tough side.

The Packers were knocked out of the playoffs in the divisional round by the San Francisco 49ers, leading to local media to suggest that the team were not physical enough.

However, the side's quarterback told WAUK-AM: "You know, we're not an offensive line that goes 330 across the board, so we're not going to be a power running game. We're going to be a team that's going to get after you with tempo and with our skilled players who are as skilled as any group of guys in the league.

"If that makes us soft in some people's opinions, we're not going to change that opinion, but we're going to win a lot of games around here with the guys that we have.

"I don't get into that whole team evaluation stuff too much, but I can tell you I like our team, I know we can win with the guys we got."

The Packers finished the regular season as the NFC North champions.
