The NFL season is getting closer and closer and experts are starting to give input on who they think is poised for great years. In the NFL no position is more important than your quarterback, and the Packers have had the MVP in back-to-back years now. Even though Aaron Rodgers has been the best the last two years there’s no guarantee he’s due to follow with a great year. NFL executives, coaches, scouts and players recently ranked quarterbacks for the 2022 season.

ESPN’s “Get Up” posted the results of the rankings this morning and Aaron Rodgers leads the field despite being the second oldest on the list. Rodgers is followed by Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Tom Brady and Joe Burrow to round out the top five.
Even though Rodgers just won MVP it is a little bit of a surprise he was ranked first. At the end of last season, there was plenty of talk about Tom Brady potentially winning MVP. Rodgers may have won the voting, but it was closer than many think. Additionally, Rodgers falls behind Mahomes and Allen in terms of MVP betting odds going into next season.
Is Rodgers Due to Regress?
Considering The Packers traded away his top target, Aaron Rodgers is due for a statistical regression. However, this doesn’t make him a worse quarterback. The Packers will simply have to find new ways to win and nobody really knows what that will look like. It could be a heavy ground game with AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones. It could be a heavy passing game more reliant on spreading targets. Regardless of how the Packers go about the offense, Aaron Rodgers will be able to execute at a high level as he’s always done.
