Aaron Rodgers, 31, will most certainly go down as one of the best NFL players ever. But he has a chance of going down as one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all-time.
In his 10th season, all with the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers has not only won a Super Bowl, an NFL MVP award, and set numerous records, but he has set milestones that no quarterback has set in their first 100 games as a starter.
Rodgers celebrated his 100th game Monday (Dec. 8) with a 43-37 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
But let’s forget the milestones for a minute. Just in this last game alone, Rodgers tied an NFL single-season record by having his eighth three-TD/zero-INT game this season. And who could forget how last month he tied an NFL record by throwing 6 touchdowns in the first half alone?
Upon completion of Rodgers’ 100th game as a starter, there have been six milestones set.
Rodgers now ranks No. 1 in league history for touchdown passes (222), passing yards (27,520), and passer rating (107.3) for a QB in his first 100 starts. He also holds the all-time records for zero-interception games (58), 100-plus passer rating games (60) and touchdown-to-interception ratio (4.11:1).
When interviewed after the game, Rodgers said, “It’s been fun; it’s been a great 100 games started. When you’re a young player, you can only dream about these kinds of opportunities. Then you get into it and you think ‘I’d love to do 100 more.'”
