The NFL has released its All-Decade Team for the 2010s, and there is a familiar name listed to Packers’ fans. Aaron Rodgers has been named to the NFL’s Second Team All Decade; Tom Brady was named to the First Team.
Rodgers had a great decade overall, despite two seasons being cut short by injuries. He started 2010 with a Super Bowl championship and a Super Bowl MVP. Rodgers added to his hardware collection with two MVP Awards, winning in 2011 and 2014. In addition, Rodgers was named to seven Pro Bowls and two All-Pro Teams during the decade.
Over the course of the decade, Rodgers threw for 305 touchdowns and only 63 interceptions. His play gave him a quarterback rating of 103.6 for the 10-year period. He led the Packers to 96 wins in 142 starts, which helped the team capture six division titles. Rodgers set a career high with 45 touchdown passes in his 2011 MVP season. In addition, he led the NFL with 40 touchdown passes in 2016.
Only two other players who appeared with the Packers over the course of the decade were named to the All-Decade Team: Julius Peppers and Jahri Evans. The last Packers to appear on an All-Decade Team were Darren Sharper and Charles Woodson, who were named to the 2000s All-Decade Team. In addition, former Wisconsin Badger Joe Thomas was named to the Team.
