Aaron Rodgers is special, but maybe not as special as he's being made out to be.
That sounds a bit harsh considering what the Packers quarterback has done and what he's currently doing. He has now thrown over 350 passes without an interception, mind-boggling for sure.
It's more of a testament to his decision making than his accuracy, as he leads the NFL in throwaways this season by an extremely large margin.
Can't imagine why he only has one pick... pic.twitter.com/Qyw0fMo4H9— Aaron Nagler (@AaronNagler) December 10, 2018
No one is even close to him in this category.
That shouldn't take away from how great his streak is as you'd rather him throw it away than toss it into coverage, but it's not like Rodgers has been threading the needle every single play.
Still, living to fight another down does give him a chance to throw more touchdowns instead of giving the ball to the other team.
Just saw a graphic on an NFL broadcast but watching in a bar with no sound: is that true? has Aaron Rodgers now thrown 359 passes without a pick? What? Is that possible? I know he’s great, but... #Packers— Chris Fowler (@cbfowler) December 9, 2018
If 53 throwaways are the price you pay for 23 touchdowns and just one pick, then so be it.
Not throwing interceptions is nice, but wins are better. Let's hope this streak turns into a winning streak for Green Bay now that Mike McCarthy is out of town.
