The NFL is a pass-happy league and great signal-callers are few and far between. Luckily for us, we are at a high point in the NFL when we have two sure-fire Hall of Famers and three more quarterbacks who are on pace to be immortalized in bronze.
Aaron Rodgers is one of them, and he's having an amazing year behind center. Every pass is nearly perfect, and it looks like he could complete any pass to any receiver at any time. If he keeps this pace up, he'll walk away with an MVP, possibly another Super Bowl title and one season to be remembered as an all-time great one.
Many people are saying that his season is the best in recent memory at the position. While I am no doubt impressed, I want to dig a little deeper and see just how well Rodgers' season compares to his contemporaries of the recent past.
For the sake of this comparison, I look at overall record, completion percentage, passing yards, touchdowns and interceptions and *passer rating.
*I understand passer rating is not considered a perfect stat, but it's a decent judge of how well a quarterback played; it's flaws withstanding.
