NFL: Ranking every quarterback midseason: 3. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers

R-E-L-A-X. That’s how Green Bay Packers fans feel right now thanks to Aaron Rodgers putting his best foot forward and putting trade rumors behind him. He still owns the Bears, and he’s not afraid to tell them so. He’s throwing at a ridiculous rate, and he can still beat the best teams in the league. Just ask the Arizona Cardinals.

After a stinker of an opener from Aaron Rodgers, he’s been awesome. He was missing Davante Adams, Marquez Valdez Scantling, and Allen Lazard against the only undefeated team left in the NFL. He still supplemented the running game with Robert Tonyan and Randall Cobb to lead his team to victory.

That is the version of Aaron Rodgers Packers fans were hoping they’d see this season. He isn’t exactly the “go for the throat” MVP version he was after the Packers drafted Jordan Love, but he’s close. He isn’t leading in any particular category, but as of Week 8, he has close to 1,900 yards, 17 touchdowns, and just 3 interceptions.

Rodgers is likely going to be playing for another franchise next season. If this list has proven anything, it’s that there is a lack of greatness at the QB position. Rodgers is still one of the greats in the league, and the way he’s playing right now, he could lead his team to a championship before he bids the fanbase adieu.
