Aaron Rodgers named NFC offensive player of the week

They can’t give Aaron Rodgers a deed to AT&T Stadium, so they can at least give him another award.

The Packers quarterback was named NFC offensive player of the week for his latest comeback win at Dallas.

Rodgers had a pedestrian stat line, completing 19-of-29 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns.

But it was the timeliness which defines him, as he led a 75-yard touchdown drive in the waning moments, hitting Davante Adams for the game-winner.

It’s Rodgers’ 16th player of the week award since 2010, the most in the league over that span.

  1. Ha! Some would argue that the players kneeling are the most offensive players of the week.

    But most have moved on and just want to watch great football and football players like this.

    Once again, your team has a great game and a great comeback, and all you want to do is talk about the Vikings. I can only surmise that you are actually a Vikings troll that is trying some reverse psychology to make Packer fans look bad. Stop it. It’s dumb.

  3. Funny thing is, A-Rod is still the Packers’ 3rd best QB of all-time.

    That’s not fair to Rogers. Rogers is better than Farve based on the fact that he doesn’t do foolish things that cost his team games. Both are great athletes, fun to watch, gifted with more athletic ability than the undisputed GOAT. But even many mediocre players have more athletic ability than Brady. It’s not just about athleticism, it’s guts and will. He’s just made different; no one else has ever been able to get a team to 7 championships, let alone play great every time. I hope Rogers gets at least one more ring though so he can be eligible for HOF consideration. He’s one of the good guys off the field too.

  4. It’s humbling to watch him play. Some times I wonder what we have done as fans to deserve being so much better at this position than almost every other team. And then I remember.

    It’s better football.

    For better people.

  5. Any all time great QB would have made it to those 7 SBs. 17 years with the Belichick/Kraft Patriots is an advantage no other QB has had and he’s hardly played great every time. The past 2 SBs he played poorly in the first half until the defense got hurt or worn down. In both Giants SBs he had great offenses but only scored 2 touchdowns. Rodgers would have won all them without being bailed out with the tuck rule or 2 biggest chokes in football history. Regardless, he could retire today and be a first ballot HOFer.

    Who said anything about Favre?. Favre might be the Packers 4th best QB of all-time behind Starr, Herber and Rodgers.

  7. Another mid-season SB win that Rodgers will undoubtedly call a press conference to discuss. Maybe even a parade.

  8. Im not saying he doesn’t deserve it…but Wentz threw 3 TDs in the first quarter in a rout. He ended up throwing 4, and 305 yards.

    Its not his fault he didn’t have to make a comeback. He had an amazing game, and easily supplanted Rodgers’.

  9. Can’t quite figure out how somebody kneeling during the national anthem is offensive to you. If you’re so busy respecting our flag, country, and troops, how do you even notice people quietly kneeling? And why do you care what others do when it doesn’t impede you from doing what you want to do?

  10. “Rodgers had a pedestrian stat line, completing 19-of-29 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns.”

    I’m 57, but I really miss the days when there was balance in sports, specifically to football; offense vs defense, being able to win with running or passing, and penalties usually not being part of the outcome.

    Most of all, I miss the days when this stat line would be a great game.

    The only reason it’s considered “pedestrian” is because of the fantasy football players that look at the yardage as being highly important. Watch the QB crawl on the bottom of the screen on Sundays and it lists the QBs in order of the most yardage. A QB that throws for 400 yards with 0 TDs but 5 INTs would be listed ahead of Rodgers’ “pedestrian” 221 yards and 3 TDs.

  12. Funny thing is, A-Rod is still the Packers’ 3rd best QB of all-time.

    I can’t speak to Starr. Never saw a down he played, aside from archived NFL Films footage.

    Rodgers V Favre is an interesting debate.

    You have a 5 year window where Favre can be considered the best QB in the League (1994-1998).. Favre was debateably the best player in all football in his MVP seasons. But he never hit that level again after ’98.

    Rodgers is in his 10th year as the Packers starter. He’s had 1 ‘off’ year, 2015 in which he lost his #1 wideout, and his RB decided he no longer wanted to be an NFL starter… other than that, you have the highest rated passer in NFL history, and a guy that has played at MVP level every single year of his career.

    Favre is my favorite athlete of all-time, in any sport. But if I had to pick a guy to start in the Super Bowl or Championship Game, I’m taking Rodgers, now and forever. The Packers may not win, but that’s almost never on him. Old #4 gave away more Playoff games than I care to remember.

  13. “Rodgers had a pedestrian stat line, completing 19-of-29 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns.”

    The Packer were down 21-6 until they methodically picked that defense apart.

    There was nothing pedestrian about Rodgers in the 4th Q.

    I can only assume you missed the game.

  14. But even many mediocre players have more athletic ability than Brady. It’s not just about athleticism, it’s guts and will. He’s just made different; no one else has ever been able to get a team to 7 championships

    Otto Graham won 7 Championships..
