ALL-NFC NORTH TEAM 2014

Starter: Aaron Rodgers, GB
Rodgers is not only the top quarterback in the division, but the best player in the entire NFL. Rodgers leads all quarterbacks in career passer rating with a 104.9 average.
In his six years as a starter, Rodgers has averaged 31 touchdowns, eight interceptions, and nearly 4,000 yards per season. Going into his tenth season, Rodgers is still in the prime of his career and looks better than ever.
Reserve: Matthew Stafford, DET
Stafford has plenty of ability and his 83.1 career passer rating reflects some underperforming. Stafford’s best season was still back in 2011 and his 56 interceptions over the past three seasons is way too many for the veteran to have at this point in his career.
Stafford may be the second-most talented quarterback in the division, but he’s got a ways to go to be in the same conversation with the elite quarterbacks of the league.
