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.”

    The most overrated QB in the NFL gets picked 1′st, no suprise. He is alright, but he is no Brady, Manning, or shall I say….Favre.

    Hey Vikingsfool, Adrian Peterson will be running circles around prision to avoid Bubba. As much as I liked Favre, he has had as many interceptions in one games then Rodgers had in one season.

    Vikingsfool- Your name says more than we need to know. You ought to worry more about how to win more than 1 or 2 games this year, than dogging the undisputed #1 QB in the League, TODAY!!!

    @ thefool – Don’t you think you’ve infested and polluted this Packer site enough? Your comments are illogical, redundant, and growing old. Your attempt to gain attention, which is probably the result of the lack of attention your Mommy gives you, is ‘utterly’ pathetic. Here’s an idea that may make you feel better about yourself: Blog with the Browns fans. Oh, wait, they have a much richer tradition with winning than the queens too. I guess my advice about checking into the psych ward is the best I can offer. Either way, just go away. No more attention from me. Go Pack Go…

    Favre played in an era where defense was still allowed, so comparing int to TD ratio, passer rating etc. isn’t a useful a way to compare their respective ability as QBs.

    Favre was exciting with a capital E. Rodgers is a bit more methodical. Each fantastic in their own right. I loved watching 4, And, I believ, accurate. And 12 may replace 15 as my all time favorite. And soon!

    Favre played when db’s were not up to speed on his fastball. He threw into situations that his velocity was able to deliver. Now db’s are up to speed on velocity as Favre showed and it caught up to him in stupid interceptions. Rogers takes care of the ball and doesnt make the stupid mistakes that Favre made at inopportune times. It is hard to make comparisons between Favre and Rogers, but, as exciting as Favre was, you had to live with the stupid throws along with the fantastic throws.

    Rodgers has all the tools to be the best quarterback ever to play in the NFL. Along with that the Greenbay Packers have been very blessed in the quarterback department something that the queens just have to ponder about. Alot of Favres interceptions came off the fastball going off recievers hands but he always played to win. If he needed 10 yards he threw it 10 yards–you live with gun you die with it. Both QB’s are awesome and always will live in packer fans memories…

    I think if you would take Favre in his prime and put him on this team at this point in the game. Favre would win more championships then Rogers. Don’t get me wrong it would only be by like one more.

    Here’s an article that I believe nails it. I loved the excitement of Favre as a Packer, he was not only great during his time, but probably the most exciting player to watch. I love A. Rodgers, he’s already had so many accomplishments in his short time as a starter, and will continue to grow. They are both great Packers! As is my childhood hero, Starr….this is definately a good read.

    In 20 years Packers fans will have 2 QBs in the Football HOB since 1990.
    Patriots? Colts? Bears? Saints? Vikings (LOL). Please. We had the blessing of having two top 3 QBs running our Team for at least 12 -15 years. How about the rest of the Teams?

    OK none of you obviously pay attention to football these days! Dont get me wrong Favre was a great player, but he was a gunslinger he threw int after int throughout his career. Rodgers on the other hand rarley throws an int, he was evrything Brett was as a QB but better. He’s not only more accurate but he can stretch the field and make a play with his feet as well as Mike Vick. No disrespect to #4 he was the face of the franchise and my favorite player but hes gone and its Aaron Rodgers time now. Rodgers when its all said and done will have the better career,more rings,and definatley less int’s.

  23. By Vikingsfool on Jul 12, 2012 | Reply

    Favre played when contact was still allowed in football. Granted, I hated the guy when he played in GB, but I don’t know if an accurate comparison can be made from today’s QB’s to those of yesteryear.

    vikingsfool, dude, how can you compare the 2? Aaron is a way more effecient quarterback. He can run and pass better than favre ever could and aaron is alot more accurate passer than favre ever was and im pretty sure aaron will have alot less interceptoins than brett.

  25. By Erik John on Jul 12, 2012 | Reply

    Favre is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Rodgers is one of the greatest quarterbacks in the present. When Rodgers completes his career, that is when I will compare him and favre. I love brett to death and appreciate everything he did for packer nation. But for the now, I and everyone else with common sense wouldnt want another qb except aaron rodgers.

    Vikingfool Farve cost your vikings a trip too the superbowl with his stupid interception against the saints as well he cost the packers a trip too the superbowl with his dumb interception against the giants. He was a great qb but he made bad decisions in some big games that cost his teams. Rodgers is the better decision maker and will not cost his team wins.

    i dont know why people are even reading Vikingfool blogs forget how many touchdowns either of them throw Brett Farve is a beast but he is the past…A-Rod is still young in his career and at this age he threw less INTs than Brett reguardless of what era it is a INT is bad. we have yet to see A-Rod make stupid mistakes like that im am die hard fan so i loved brett farve but he jus took too many risk..plus A-Rod is much more athletic which makes him mobile on his feet..I know everyone saw how he lead a game in rushing against the Gmen ..Thats not bretts game even though he ran a few times.lol But hands down A-Rod is more consist better accuracy and can carry a team that had a bad defense this year on his back..But dont worry the PACK is BACK with NEW ad IMPROVED DEFENSE….

    Please Packer fans ignore the drool… I loved Favre, was sad when he left Green Bay, but with that said it’s too early in Rodgers career to say who’s better. Rodgers has shown that as of right now IMO he is the superior of the 2 qb’s, but Rodgers has a long career a head of him to prove that he can always play at this level. If he plays at this level for his entire career he will easly surpas Favre as the greatest qb in Packer history. But first he has to do what Favre could never do in his entire career, win another ring!

    To me it seemed after Holmgren left no one could control bretts crazy throws that cost alot of games.Also how many more games could he have won if he would have shown up at training camps?

    Favre showed his true colors when he played against the Pack and tried to run up the score and almost cost the game. He couldn’t get over Ted not bowing to his many almost retirements and trading him. As far as I’m concerned with his lewd behavior and primadona attitude when he goes into the hall of fame it should be as a Viking they deserve him.
