Legendary senior writer jclombardi reports NFL analyst Jaworski names NFL Rodgers as no. 1 quarterback.
Very few quarterbacks in NFL history have had Rodgers' exceptional combination of velocity and accuracy, elite arm strength and pinpoint ball location. One critical measure of high-level play is the ability to execute versus the blitz. 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. There's a larger, more significant issue that speaks to Rodgers' greatness. He can beat the defense even when the defense wins, whether it's blitz or a three-man pressure with eight in coverage. Again, the ability to drive the ball on the move down the field, that's a rare trait.
