Aaron Rodgers takes home October honors

After the first three weeks of the season, the Packers were 1-2 and their offense wasn’t producing at quite the level many people expected coming into the year.

Things look a bit different as we head into November. Green Bay is 5-3 and the offense is looking a lot healthier. A big part of that has been the play of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was named the NFC offensive player of the month for October on Thursday.

Rodgers completed 96-of-141 passes in four games during the month for 1,101 yards, 14 touchdowns and one interception. He put up a good chunk of those numbers in Weeks Six and Seven when he threw six touchdowns against the Texans and followed that up by hitting on 30-of-37 passes against the Rams. The Packers won despite a less prolific passing performance in Week Eight, leaving them on a three-game winning streak heading into Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.

It’s the sixth time that Rodgers has been named player of the month, tying him with Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Barry Sanders, Bruce Smith and Steve Young for the most all time.

    What? I think you have me confused with somebody else. Rodgers is a great player and he deserves this honor. If you’re going to attack someone, at least get the name right.

    If you ask anyone in MN, Percy will still be MVP though.

    Can’t argue with Rodgers but what does Josh Freeman have to do to win this award? In his three October games he was 59-104-1010 with 9 TD’s and 1 int as the Bucs went 2-1. Go Bucs!

    Expect November and December to follow suit, with the Packers schedule getting easier and easier. He could have that stay line vs. in the two Vikings games alone.

    Probably another MVP and SB MVP upcoming as well.

    You must have not watched the narrow win over the powerhouse Jags. Lets not get carried away

    Ironic that the picture shows him wearing pink and that the month was breast cancer awareness month, given Rodgers history of ignoring cancer patients…

    You mean the narrow win(by 9 points) without his #1 and 2 WRs, #1 RB, and 4 Defensive Starters?

    The “ignored” cancer patient said that Rodgers had signed for her before, deviking. Ironic that you root for a team that takes its name from a group known for murdering, looting and raping, and you’re trying to act like sensitive Minnesota Nice.

    How did that work out for him earlier in the year when he did have all those guys?

    Why do so many people dislike Aaron Rodgers? He’s fun to watch, his perceived “whining” is usually in the form of candid responses to questions on his radio show, and he gives tons of credit to his teammates, the organization, and the fans, not to mention his opponents. He hardly ever talks about all the awards he’s won. It’s funny the emotions that sports bring out in people.
