The 32-year-old forward, who has scored 62 goals for his hometown team in 233 appearances over two spells, is refusing to lose hope.
Rodriguez suffered relegation to the Championship with West Bromwich Albion in 2018 as the Baggies finished bottom of the pile.
"Until it's mathematically impossible to get out of it there's always a chance," said Rodriguez. "The group still believes and we'll take any chance that we get. You take hits in this league, we've taken a few, but we've always bounced back. The big thing is confidence and momentum so hopefully we can start generating that.
"Anything we can take in the remaining games we need to grab with both hands. It's really important that we keep pushing."
From supporter, to ball boy and signing his first professional papers, to then making his debut, scoring his first goal, featuring in a play-off final at Wembley and landing the club's Player of the Year accolade. He's experienced success across the spectrum.
And keeping Burnley in the Premier League would be right up there with his decorated list of achievements. "It would be massive, it would be huge," he declared.
"Keeping Burnley in the Premier League is obviously the main focus. It would be massive to the group of lads that we've got here, we know how important it is. It's down to us, we've got to stay focussed and take each game as it comes.
"Of course [I feel invested]. It's where I'm from and I want to see Burnley where they deserve to be — in the Premier League. We've worked hard to stay here so it's important. Every player in the squad knows what it means to the town and that sticks with us. We know how hard we've got to work to keep that."
