Surprise: Aaron Rodgers wins NFC offensive player of week

Green Bay Packers v Houston Texans Getty Images

After he threw for six touchdowns in beating the previously undefeated Texans, you kind of figured Aaron Rodgers would win an award or something.

The league did not disappoint, naming Rodgers the NFC offensive player of the week.

Against the Texans, he became just the third quarterback in league history to complete 60 percent of his passes, with at least 330 yards and six touchdowns, with no picks. While that’s the kind of statistical gymnastics that make my back hurt, when you say he joins a club with Tom Brady and Hall of Famer Y.A. Tittle, it makes more sense.

The award is his seventh overall and second in three weeks.

    I’m surprised it didn’t go to Adrian Peterson, that touchdown MACHINE!

    I am not surprised at all!

    His gameday stats aren’t what is admirable. What IS amazing, is that for the first time in several weeks we did not have to hear Rodgers, the rest of the team, nor their fans cry, whine, and throw tantrums over legitimate calls going against them.

    Expect a few more of these this year as well. This man is on a mission.

    Well deserved

    He’s pretty good.

    I wish I could upvote kattykathy more. Green Bay whining about the refs (both replacement and actual) was getting kind of old. Rodgers wants the same treatment as Manning/Brady get.

    In related news, Rodgers and the packers also won cry baby of the month. For their extensive work whining about the refs, team chemistry, and the lack of intensity in the practice squad/scout team dragging the team down. Two in one week, well done Rodgers.

    Are you serious? Most of America saw that as the single biggest, most televised, official mistake in NFL history. Other than that game I am willing to accept everything the new refs have done. There have been bad calls before but that one changed the entire game. Most bad calls are something a team is capable of overcoming.

    Ripping another player vs. celebrating your guy’s accomplishment?

    I swear some of you trolls seriously root against a rival more than you cheer for your own team…..

    He had that award won by halftime

  14. randallflagg52 says: Oct 17, 2012 2:57 PM

    Did he throw his weekly temper tantrum about the refs yet?

    These comments are getting old fast. The only whining is coming from people like you who keep recycling nonsense.

    Are you people serious?

    You STILL complaining about the call the Ref made in Seattle?

    Are you clowns not aware that the league came out the following day and said they had their own longtime employees review the play and they AGREED with the Refs call??????

    Please, get a life

    contrasuxbalz ” Most of America saw that as the single biggest, most televised, official mistake in NFL history.” Drama much? Most of America doesn’t care that much about the Packers…. unless they’re winning and according to official NFL scoring they didn’t, so it will be forgotten by everyone except, whinny Packer fans.

    The Packers are consistently ranked in the top 3 for favorite NFL team so irishnativeson you have no clue what your talking about surprise, surprise.

    That’s not exactly what they said. But let’s go with your delusion and pretend that they did. Despite this, less than 3 days later, the lockout was over and the real refs were back.

    Out here in the real world, most of us know actions speak louder than words.

    And he may well have gotten a 7th TD if the Pack hadn’t rested him for the last couple of series.

    Graham Harrell wasn’t disastrous this time out, but dude, you gotta be able to get at least one first down some time.
