What can you say about Aaron Rodgers?
Rodgers has led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory in which he was named MVP of the game (Super Bowl XLV).
Add to that, Rodgers threw 45 TD passes to just six interceptions for 4,643 yards and also had a QB rating of 122.5 of 2011. 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.
Rodgers was also named first-team All-Pro and was named the starting QB for the NFC in the Pro Bowl in 2011 (his second Pro Bowl), as he led the Packers to a 15-1 regular season record.
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.
Rodgers has a 41-22 record in the regular season in four years and has won one NFC North title.
In the postseason, 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. Again, that is the best in NFL history.
Rodgers has a 4-2 record in the postseason, including a Super Bowl victory.
In Super Bowl XLV, there was a play that clearly illustrates how clutch Rodgers was in that game. It was 3rd-and-10 and the Packers were on their own 25 yard line with about six minutes to go in the game. The Packers were holding a slim 28-25 lead at the time.
So what did Rodgers do? He threw a frozen rope to Greg Jennings in tight coverage on a skinny post that led to a 31 yard reception. That catch led to a 23 yard field goal by Mason Crosby which padded the Green Bay lead to six points with just over two minutes to play.
Not long after that, Rodgers would be on stage accepting his Super Bowl XLV trophy after the Packers had beaten the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25.
I believe there will be a few more ceremonies like that for Rodgers down the road.
