I read it in Kareem Copeland’s story Monday in the Green Bay Press Gazette,
his story about Aaron Rodgers starting to be taken for granted.
Copeland wrote, “Rodgers surgical operations have become so routine, they’re in danger of losing their luster.”
On my way to work this morning, a national figure-head was asked to identify the best quarterbacking performance of the weekend? Joe Flacco is the answer that was almost immediately blurted out.
I almost drove off the road. Surely this person must not have seen or heard about Aaron Rodgers latest 4 touchdown performance with a quarterback rating that exceeded 145.
Rodgers through the first half of the season, has thrown for 24 touchdowns and been intercepted just 3-times. He’s the number one quarterback in the NFL. His quarterback rating for the season is at 129.1.
Rodgers should be the offensive player of the week every week and the offensive player of the month, every month. His numbers are so unbelievable that no person should utter another name than that of Aaron Rodgers.
Simply selecting another quarterback for top honors means one thing. Rodgers performance has become so automatic that fans are expecting this every week. But as amazing as the numbers are, people are losing sight about just how special these numbers are.
Rodgers is marking new territory on a weekly basis. Performances like these don’t come around very often. Remember just how special this is. There’s still a lot of football to be played, both this season and in Rodgers career. But you may be watching the most accurate quarterback to play the game in the modern era.
