Most people expect Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be named the league’s Most Valuable Player in a few weeks and he won another award on Thursday.

The NFL announced that Rodgers has been named the NFC offensive player of the month. It is the ninth time he has received those honors and the first since the 2016 season.

Rodgers piloted the Packers to wins in their final five games of the season. He went 111-of-145 for 1,199 yards, 15 touchdowns, and one interception in those outings. Rodgers also ran for two scores to round out another impressive month of work.

Those five wins clinched the top seed in the NFC playoffs for the Packers. They’ll be off this weekend while they wait to see who will be the next to attempt to slow down Rodgers.

  1. It’s not easy fielding a team capable of fully supporting a player the caliber of Rodgers. Getting everything to sync on both sides of the ball can elevate the already impressive abilities of a guy like Rodgers. He’s talented, period, this isn’t about him suddenly becoming re-motivated. Have you ever listened to him? He hasn’t stopped being motivated in his entire life. It’s who he has. It’s a trait very successful people have in all walks of life. Congratulations to Rodgers, especially at his age.

  2. As weird as this year has been, watching Rodgers light up the league like it’s 2011 has made it one of the more enjoyable seasons in recent memory.

  3. Its simply amazing isnt it that a quarterback even a star one can be so successful with only one reciever,Davante Adams and no great number two and three recievers. just think how good the Packers would be if they had drafted a young reciever as every fan and expert had wanted them to last year to compliment him,they probably would have went 16-0 instead of 13-3.hopefully they listen to the experts and draft correctly this year.

  4. Despite what you might expect I don’t have a problem with this. However, as most Packers fans will tell you, it’s all about Superbowls. Will that be the outcome in February? Only time will tell, but that franchise has underachieved on an epic scale for a quarter of a century given who they’ve had behind center.

  5. Aaron’s last 2 years weren’t to his standards, it looked like he was aging. This year he turned back the clock. He still has a great arm and accuracy, his line has played exceptionally well. It’s amazing what a great QB does when he is rarely getting pressured. Hopefully this run continues and he gets the real trophy in Tampa.

  6. But didn’t Brady already beat AR head to head this year. AR had a couple picks…one for a pick-6. hmmmmm. Just sayin’

  7. He is playing at an unreal level. Amazing I didn’t think he could outperform his MVP year in 2011 year but he has. Seems to be having fun with it playing relaxed and having fun. Packers will play either the Chiefs or Bills in the Super Bowl, I don’t think there is any way any of the other NFC playoff teams are going to go into Lambeau and knock them off this year. Sigh, like when I was a kid with the Vikings and Metropolitan Stadium.

    Everytime you post this garbage, it just makes you seem extremely stupid.
    Not that you really care, as long as you get the attention that you so obviously crave. Sad.

    Scottishvike, I personally know of a few fan bases that would be thrilled to have had a couple of Championship runs the last 25 years or so.
    Some probably over the last 60 years even, regardless of who they’ve trotted out under center. 🤣

    All Hail the GOAT


    Let’s curb our enthusiasm shall we? Yes he is an excellent player. However, he is 1-2 in title games only has one Super Bowl and that’s coming up on a decade. He is no where near Manning, Montana, Young let alone Tom Brady. While well earned and impressive to say the least he is not the Greatest of All Time.

  10. Packers front office chair warmers: “See, Aaron, you don’t need any additional offensive help. You’re about to win the MVP!”

  11. He probably would have 5000 yards and over 55 touchdowns if his receivers wouldn’t drop the ball so many times all year.
