Rodgers named Jaworski’s No. 1 QB

Posted by Mike Spofford on July 10, 2012 – 10:38 am

In what came as no surprise, ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski concluded his countdown of the top 30 quarterbacks in the NFL on Tuesday by unveiling Packers QB Aaron Rodgers as his No. 1 choice.

New Orleans’ Drew Brees, New England’s Tom Brady, Denver’s Peyton Manning and the N.Y. Giants’ Eli Manning rounded out Jaworski’s top five. In the NFC North, the next highest-rated QB was Chicago’s Jay Cutler at No. 8. Detroit’s Matthew Stafford came in at No. 14, and Minnesota’s Christian Ponder was No. 28.

“Aaron Rodgers is my No. 1 quarterback,” Jaworski said. “He has all the attributes that I love: accuracy, velocity, movement, toughness. Those attributes lead to elite play and wins. He’s won two out of every three starts and a Super Bowl championship.”

Jaworski noted Rodgers’ third-and-10 throw to Greg Jennings in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLV as the perfect example of Rodgers’ “exceptional combination of velocity and accuracy, elite arm strength and pin-point ball location.”

“You know what I love most about that throw? Rodgers’ instinctive willingness to pull the trigger. He made it because he knew he could make it. One critical measure of high-level play is the ability to execute versus the blitz. Rodgers’ rating in 2011 was 136, easily the best in the NFL. He was outstanding beating the man coverage that you primarily see with blitz. Again, a function of his accuracy, or as I’ve said many times, ball location.”
