1. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
Throwing for 25 touchdowns and just two interceptions would be career-best numbers for many quarterbacks in the NFL. For Aaron Rodgers, it’s considered a disappointing season. But part of the reason was a knee injury suffered in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. Still, Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFC North, and it’s not close.
The two-time MVP has nothing to prove at this point. If he retired today he’d be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer and considered one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL. But he still has many years ahead of him, and in a new-look offense, the Packers will be hoping Rodgers can reach his MVP best again in the near future.
Rodgers’ incredible arm strength and accuracy means he can make any throw even when he’s off balance or on the run. His ability to escape defenders, keep plays alive and throw on the run forces defenses to actually attempt to contain him in the pocket. And if that wasn’t enough, he’s also able to pick up yards on the ground.
Rodgers can do it all, and for that reason, he’s the best QB in the NFL. But he currently only has one Super Bowl victory. The goal now is to finish his career with another championship or two.
