Aaron Rodgers is Tops
You can bet Greg Jennings will love this. ESPN went and surveyed a bunch of experts about the best players in the NFL and, of course, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is No. 1.
So, first, here’s how they did this: We polled 63 experts to rate each player on a 0-to-10 scale, with 10 being the best regardless of position in the NFL.
Rodgers got the highest mark at 9.92.
Interestingly, right behind him on the list were two guys who play in the same division — Calvin Johnson (9.89) and Adrian Peterson (9.87).
So why is Aaron Rodgers the awesomest dude out there? Like you don’t know.
In the past two seasons, Rodgers has thrown 70 more touchdown passes (84) than interceptions (14). He has 57 wins, including playoffs, in his first five seasons as the Packers starter. That’s the same number Brett Favre had in his first five seasons with Green Bay.
