Aaron Rodgers’ rating in ‘Madden 21’ is far too low.

To say Aaron Rodgers‘ play over the past couple of years hasn’t been up there with his MVP seasons would be fair, but the talk of his decline has gone way too far.

Last season, Rodgers threw 26 touchdown passes and only four interceptions and was voted to the Pro Bowl as a result, despite the fact he was playing in a new system in Matt LaFleur’s first year as head coach.

The Green Bay Packers‘ superstar quarterback is still one of the best at his position in the NFL, and there are no signs of that changing anytime soon.

Despite that, Rodgers’ rating in the “Madden 21” video game is lower than it should be. Here’s a list of the top 10 quarterback ratings in this year’s edition of the game:

To be fair, they’ve got it spot on for the most part. Patrick Mahomes absolutely deserves to join the “99 Club” after two incredible seasons with an NFL and Super Bowl MVP to his name. Russell Wilson being in second place with a 97 rating is also fair.

But if there are two players who can be disappointed with their rating in this year’s game, it’s Rodgers and Deshaun Watson. Both players should have ratings of 90 or above.

Rodgers might no longer be the NFL’s best quarterback. That title belongs to Mahomes now. But he’s still a top-five QB, easily. It seems like Tom Brady’s switch to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has generated so much hype that many have forgotten how he played for most of the 2019 season.

Last season, Brady attempted 44 more passes than Rodgers, but only finished with 55 more passing yards. Rodgers threw more touchdown passes (26 to 24) with half as many interceptions (four to eight).

Aaron Rodgers is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league. A few weeks into the season, don’t be surprised if his “Madden” rating is above 90.
