Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
1) Introduction: It was a grind at times for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Things didn’t look quite as easy as they did in 2011. When injuries mounted and adversity came and went, Rodgers kept the Packers in games and came through in the end more often than not. It wasn’t an MVP season, but it wasn’t far off.

3) Expectations coming into the season: 8,000 yards, 108 touchdowns, 1 interception and a QB rating of 607.3. Seriously, I think some people honestly expected those numbers from Rodgers. His 2011 run might have been a once in a lifetime thing. It’s unfair to expect that to happen every season, maybe ever again. Rodgers ended up leading the league in passer rating for the second straight season and made several plays when he had no business making a play. It was another great season, regardless if he failed to meet some people’s unrealistic expectations.
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: This was my favorite Rodgers’ throw of the season. Amazing. Other highlights include the big game against Houston, making plays down the stretch at Lambeau against the Vikings and recovering nicely from an interception to beat the Saints in a must-win early-season game. If I could change one thing about Rodgers’ season, it would be the interception against the 49ers in the playoffs. Rodgers hasn’t had a holy crap that was awesome! type of playoff game since the Super Bowl. That needs to change. Read more... (471 words + 1 image, estimated 1:53 mins reading time)

1) Introduction: Aaron Rodgers is the face of this franchise, and not just for his discount doub– err . . . championship belt celebration. He received this year’s Associated Press NFL MVP Award for leading his team to a 15-1 record, breaking the single-season passer rating along the way (122.5). In his fourth season as starting quarterback for the Packers, he gives fans an enormous amount of hope for more Super Bowl titles.

3) Expectations coming into the season: As the reigning Super Bowl MVP, Aaron Rodgers was expected to lead the Packers to a return title in 2011. He obviously couldn’t do it alone, but Green Bay wouldn’t be able to do it without him at the helm. Hopes were that he could stay healthy (i.e., avoid concussions) and build upon the three previous seasons as a starter.
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: Aaron Rodgers’ entire season just seemed to be one long highlight reel. His consistently superior level of play made even the smallest of errors a shock to fans. He boasted a passer rating of over 140 in four separate games; however, it was his one-minute, game-winning drive against the New York Giants that really stuck out for me this season. As for lowlights, it’s hard to avoid the lone regular season loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and gut-wrenching miscues in the postseason game. Read more...
