NFL  > Green Bay Packers  > Aaron Rodgers named NFC Player of the Month
September 29, 2011, 02:24 PM
Through three games, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers leads the NFL in passer rating and completion percentage and is tied for the fewest interceptions.
Oh, and his team is 3-0.
That???s a pretty strong resume to begin 2011, and with it Rodgers has been named the ???NFC Offensive Player of the Month??? for September.
It???s the third time in his career Rodgers has earned the monthly award. He also won it in December/January last season and in October 2009. Rodgers was named ???NFC Offensive Player of the Week??? following the season-opener this year.
Rodgers??? numbers over the season???s first three weeks are awe-inspiring. He has completed 71.8 percent of his passes, the only starting QB in the league at 70 percent. He has eight touchdown passes against just one interception, and his 84-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson in Week 2 is the longest in the NFC and the second-longest in the league this season, behind only Tom Brady???s 99-yarder to Wes Welker for New England.
With a league-leading 120.9 passer rating, Rodgers is 7.1 points ahead of the next-closest quarterback, Brady. In the fourth quarter, his rating spikes to 131.3, tops in the NFC and third in the league.
Rodgers has posted a passer rating better than 100 in all three games this season, giving him 28 such ratings in his career through 50 regular-season starts. That???s the most in the NFL since the 1970 league merger by a quarterback in his first 50 starts, topping the 27 by Dallas??? Tony Romo.
Rodgers became the first quarterback in team history to throw for 300-plus yards in each of the first two games of a season, and he nearly made it three straight in throwing for 297 yards in Chicago last week.
His 917 passing yards are the second-most in franchise history through the first three games of a season, behind only Brett Favre???s 925 in 1999.

That one cheap interception haunts me from the last game for some reason...lol. He's a far better QB than Favre that's for sure. No more losing (knock on wood) playoff games to huge mistakes...etc.

no kidding, that interception was just a great display of athleticism by Urlacher. Gonna have a few of those, A-Rod's not gonna go ALL season with no INT's!
And yeah, Rodgers inspires a lot more confidence for me than Favre. Favre was fun to watch and a great player don't get me wrong, but Rodgers just carries himself so well and makes much better decisions.

Favre always had brain farts at critical times during the game.

Favre was just plain out of control at times. If we had Rodgers instead of Favre a few of those playoff games, chances are we would have won them.
