Default Are we witnessing a future "all-time great" in Aaron Rodgers?

I've been a Rodgers dick rider for a good year now. I always hoped that he would go on and be something spectacular when Favre handed him the keys to the Packers and then wanted to take them back, only for the Pack to say we're riding with Aaron now. Remember this?

2008- 93.8 QB rating, 28 TD, 13 INT, 63.6%, 4 rush TD's
2009- 103.2 QB rating, 30 TD, 7 INT, 64.7%, 5 rush TD's

Here's an article on Rodgers being the best ever through his first 32 starts...


Quote:
Through 32 starts, Aaron Rodgers is off to the best beginning to a career of any quarterback in NFL history, as measured by one of the position's most important stats—touchdown passes per interception (2.9). After this small sample of games, he also ranks as the sport's all-time leader in interception rate (1.8% of pass attempts) and career QB rating (97.2). It's clear the Packers correctly sensed Mr. Rodgers was a star in the making when they ended his role as understudy to Brett Favre the minute Mr. Favre began his now annual retirement ritual.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...tTopCarousel_1

He has one of the best young cores as shown in the other team and his team will be a contender for years to come. Even the great -primetime- has said the Packers are really the one team that scares him this year.

Are we witnessing a future HOF'er who will be mentioned with the all-time greats when it's all said and done?

Favre didn't "hand him the keys." It's more like the Pack handed him the keys because Brett was taking forever to get out the bathroom.

Favre retired, the Pack gave him the keys, and then Favre wanted them back.

I, too, have been really high on him for a while. I predicted in the NFL predictions thread a few weeks ago that he'd be in the top 3 of MVP voting (I may have said he'd win it but dont remember and too lazy to look it up)

I think he's going to have a monster year. If they can find a young WR to replace Donald Driver in a year or so, that offense will be very scary for the next 5 years with Rodgers, Finley, Jennings, Driver ('s replacement) and Grant.

Aaron Rodgers is making a bid on that 'elite' QB status tag. Elite being Top 3-5 arguable/debatable. He has the best composure of anyone in the game; better than Mr. Palmer himself. I'm not sold on Aaron Rodgers being the 'next' Farve or better, etc. - but he's pretty much already positioned himself a Pro-Bowl worthy QB year-in-year-out kinda guy.

I definitely think he could be one of the great all time QB's. I think he's about to put together an all time type season. If I'm starting a franchise and I can have any player in the league I'd take him. I rate him as the best player in football.

I don't even think that's a very bold statement. The way he played last year was nearly flawless and he looks even better.

I agree with everything being said in here.

103.2 QB rating, 30 TD, 7 INT, 64.7%, 5 rush TD's

Those numbers in his second year as a starter? That's absolutely phenomenal. He's a very efficient QB and really doesn't have a weakness. Not to mention that his line was horrible the first half of the season last year and he still played flawlessly.

What's so cool about Rodgers is that he doesn't fold under pressure either (Romo); and he doesn't explode and let his emotions get the best of him (Rivers).

To be fair prime Romo only has ONE playoff win. In over 4 seasons as the starter. Rodgers has been starter only 2 seasons now.

I was joking around for the most part, but pointing out that for some reason it is the only stat that matters with Romo when it comes to the fans...

no one cares about post season wins with Rodgers...but it is the ONLY thing people care about with Romo for some reason...





Mark Sanchez has more playoff wins than Romo and Rodgers combined...

he needs to start taking the Pack to the playoffs, then deep into the play offs then winning a couple SBs first. But talent wise, stats-wise he's in line.
