Green Bay was 2-5-1 without Rodgers under center last season.

If Rodgers’ seven week absence highlighted anything, it was that the Packers desperately need their MVP quarterback on the field.

The Packers’ offense begins and ends with Rodgers. His ability to make tight throws in coverage, made adjustments on the fly, and elude pass rushers in the pocket, makes him a truly unique player at the position.

Rodgers is still in the prime of his career and one of the best in the business. Despite the talent throughout the roster, Green Bay’s 2014 season rests on the arm of the ten-year veteran from Cal.
