Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL. Sure, his off-field life may cause some controversy, but when it comes to playing the game, there is no one the Packers would rather have on their team. A four-time MVP, Aaron Rodgers has shown that he is just getting better with age. After all, he won the last two MVP Awards. That has not stopped NFL analysts from slandering him on social media though.
Justin Herbert Is the Next Aaron Rodgers?
Adam Schein of CBS Sports went on his show to explain why Justin Herbert is going to be the next Aaron Rodgers:

Justin Herbert is a very good young quarterback. He was the Offensive Rookie of the Year in the NFL last season when he threw for 4,336 yards, 31 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. This past season, Herbert made his first Pro Bowl behind 5,014 pass yards, 38 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions.
But the next Aaron Rodgers? Come on now. In his second season as a starter, Aaron Rodgers had a passer rating of 103.2 and a QBR of 69.1. Last season, Herbert’s second, he had a passer rating of 97.7 and a QBR of 65.6.
And let’s not forget about the interception numbers. Rodgers has the lowest interception percentage in NFL history. Herbert would have to improve dramatically in this area to even draw comparisons to Rodgers.
How are they similar? Well, they both have long hair and play quarterback. Last season they both threw a lot of touchdowns. But Rodgers was the MVP and Herbert was not even in the discussion.
