Summary

Rodgers has all the qualities you would want in a franchise quarterback; elite arm strength, a quick release and pin point accuracy. His intelligence is what sets him apart though. He has become a master at diagnosing pre-snap coverage, allowing him to go through his progressions and pick defenses apart. Aside from being excellent as a pocket passer, his most impressive quality is the ability to get outside the pocket, roll to either side and throw on the run. He forces the opposing team to defend the entire field. Defenses have to pick their poison because has also shown to be an effective runner throughout his career (20 career rushing touchdowns). Rodgers has finished as the #2 QB four of the last five years, with 2013 being the exception when he missed seven games. Injuries are a minor concern, as he has proven that he is willing to play through pain. The Packers resigned Randall Cobb during the off season, so Rodgers will once again have a talented wide receiver core. Throw in a top five offensive line and Rodgers remains the most stable option at quarterback. (May 15)

Packers | GB starters will sit Saturday (Thu Aug 27, 07:13 PM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and the rest of Green Bay's starters will not play Saturday, Aug. 29, versus the Philadelphia Eagles, according to QB Matt Blanchard.

Our View: Why risk any further (devastating) injury? The Packers have already lost Jordy Nelson for the season in a meaningless preseason game, and they don't need to get any other starters hurt.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers may be limited Saturday (Wed Aug 26, 05:45 PM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could see limited snaps during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and there is a chance he could sit out the entire game.

Our View: After the Jordy Nelson injury, we're not surprised by this news. The Packers are going to be incredibly cautious with their superstar quarterback.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers had great chemistry with Jordy Nelson (Mon Aug 24, 07:12 PM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' passer rating when targeting WR Jordy Nelson in the last four seasons has been 150.2, 130.3, 111.6 and 128.2, according to Pro Football Focus.

Our View: Numbers aren't necessary to prove the point--just watch Rodgers when he's targeting Nelson and you see a confident and accurate passer taking advantage of defenses. We'll see how Rodgers builds chemistry with Nelson's replacement, second-year pro Davante Adams.
