First, there was the question of whether he was athletic enough to succeed as a starter in the NFL. That was answered in 2008.
Then there were the doubts of whether or not he could lead the Packers to the postseason. He checked that one off in 2009.
Next it became whether or not Rodgers could win a playoff game and truly replace Brett Favre in the hearts and minds of Packers fans. He finally sealed the deal on that one with a Super Bowl title in 2010 (although the hearts and minds of many were already won by the start of 2010).
Now there is another question involving Rodgers, but I don’t think he would mind this one being asked around too much especially this early in his career:
“Is Aaron Rodgers on the path to enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame?”
Before we can even begin to answer that question, there should be one huge disclaimer attached: Rodgers has played six NFL seasons and has seen enough meaningful action in three of them. Hall of Fame enshrinement is judged upon a player’s entire career so to prognosticate Rodgers’ chances after three seasons as a starter is a little preposterous.
All that said, we can look at some trends from these past three seasons and try to play the role of Nostradamus in gauging how Rodgers will finish his career.
