Aaron Rodgers: 2011 NFL MVP Is the All-Time QB Rating MVP Too

Bob FoxContributor IFebruary 5, 2012

During the 2011 NFL season, Aaron Rodgers threw 45 TD passes to just six interceptions for 4,643 yards and also had a QB rating of 122.5.  Rodgers also had a completion percentage of 68.3.  The 122.5 QB rating was the best in the NFL and also broke the all-time record set by Peyton Manning in 2004, when Manning had a 121.1 QB rating. 

The QB rating system also determines which QB wins the passing title in any given year.  Therefore, Rodgers won the overall passing title in the NFL in 2011. 

Rodgers led the Packers to the NFC North title with a 15-1 record, which was the best mark in the NFL.

Rodgers was also named first team All-Pro and was named the starting QB for the NFC in the Pro Bowl.

That all led to Rodgers being named the NFL's Most Valuable Player in 2011.

A well-deserved honor.  But there is much more.

Rodgers not only had the best-ever QB rating in a single season in 2011, but Rodgers is the all-time leader in QB rating in both the regular season and the postseason.

Rodgers has thrown 132 TD passes vs. just 38 interceptions for 17,366 yards and has a 104.1 QB rating in his career during the regular season.  Rodgers is the only QB in NFL history to have a QB rating of over 100 based on 1,500 passing attempts.

Add to that: Rodgers has thrown 15 TD passes vs. only four picks for 1,781 yards and has a QB rating of 105.5 in his career during the postseason.  Again, that is the best-ever in NFL history.

Rodgers just turned 28 years old in December.

Rodgers has now won a NFL MVP and a Super Bowl MVP.

I believe there will be more to come...in both cases.
