How good is Rodgers this year?

Rodgers is obviously having an other-worldly season. The eye test can tell you that much, as can his teams 9-0 record. But how good has he been statistically compared to some of the great QB seasons of the other active QB's....

Rodger's numbers this season thus far:

71.9 comp %, 327 YPG, 9.81 YPA, 23 TD's - 3 INT's

If you extrapolate the numbers over a season:

11' Aaron Rodgers- 5,238 Yards, 71.9 comp%, 9.81 YPA, 46 TD's - 6 INT's, 125.7 QB Rating

And he has 5 of 8 remaining games left at home. Here are some of the other great QB seasons of recent history.

10' Tom Brady- 3,900 Yards, 65.9 comp%, 7.93 YPA, 36 TD's - 4 INT's, 111.0 QB Rating

08' Tom Brady- 4,806 Yards, 68.9 comp%, 8.32 YPA, 50 TD's - 8 INT's, 117.2 QB Rating

04' Peyton Manning- 4,557 Yards, 67.6 comp%, 9.17 YPA, 49 TD's - 10 INT's, 121.1 QB Rating

 

Obviously you'd take any of these seasons from your QB, as they only come along about once every 2-3 seasons. You also have to have some excellent receivers and O Line, as well as have a lot of things go your way. That being said, he may not being having the best season we've seen from a QB in the the last decade, but you could make an argument that he may. You certainly wouldn't hate the comp % and YPA he gives you, as well as the ball security. He actually has the NFL record right now for highest TD/INT ratio for a career- 3.06, and lowest INT/Passes thrown percentange- 1.99%.  He truly does put on a fantastic performance and he seems like he has fun doing it. Props to the Packers for drafting and developing him, and props to Rodgers for being such a bad ass. Can't see a reason why you wouldn't pick them to win the Bowl thus far. 

By the way, his comp%, YPA, and QB Rating would be NFL single season records for the Super Bowl era if the season ended now, that's saying something. 

I know this probably belongs on a Packers blog, but I'm a Chiefs fan and even I can respect excellence when I see it, thought you would enjoy as well...
