Aaron Rodgers Career & Stats
He started his football career at a very young age. Despite his impressive high school record, he attracted little interest from Division I programs. In a 2011 interview with E:60, he attributed the relative lack of attention in the recurring process to his unimposing physical stature as a high school player. He had wanted to attend Florida State and play under head coach Bobby Bowden but was rejected.
Aaron Rodgers was only offered an opportunity to compete for a scholarship as a walk-on from the University of Illinois. Aaron declined the invitation and considered quitting football to play baseball instead or giving up entirely on the idea of playing professional sports and attending law school after completing his undergraduate degree. Aaron was then recruited to play football at Butte Community College in Oroville, a junior college about 15 miles southeast of Chico.
Aaron Rodgers threw 26 touchdowns in his freshman season at Butte Community College, leading the school to a 10-1 record, the NorCal Conference championship, and a No. 2 national ranking. He was discovered by the California GoldenNorCal Conference championship, and a No. 2 national ranking.
While, there he was discovered by the California Golden Bear’s head Coach Jeff Tedford, who was recruiting Butte tight end Garrett Cross. Tedford was surprised to learn that he had not been recruited earlier. He was eligible to transfer to the University of California, Berkeley after one year of junior college instead of the typical two.
He had three years of eligibility at Cal as a junior college transfer. Aaron Rodgers was named the starting quarterback in the fifth game of the 2003 season, beating the only team that offered him a Division I opportunity out of high school, Illinois. He led the teams to a 21-7 halftime lead against #3 USC. Due to injury, he was replaced in the second half by Reggie Robertson. He passed for 394 yards and was named game MVP in the insight Bowl against Virginia Tech.
He led Cal to a 10-1 record and top-five ranking at the end of the regular season, with their only loss a 23-17 loss at No. 1 USC. He set a school record for consecutive completed passes with 26 and tied an NCAA record with 23 consecutive passes completed in one game. Aaron Rodgers set a Cal single-game record for a passing completion percentage of 85.3. He holds the Cal career record for the lowest percentage of passes intercepted at 1.95 percent.
His performance set up the Golden Bears at first and a goal with 1:47 remaining and a chance for the game-winning touchdown. After a timeout and Aaron Rodgers’ incomplete pass on third down, USC stopped Cal’s run play to win the game. He finished the 2004 season with 2,566 passing yards, 24 eight interceptions. After the season, Aaron Rodgers decided to forgo his senior season to enter the 2005 NFL Draft.
2005 NFL Draft
He was expected to be selected early in the 2005 NFL Draft as he had posted impressive numbers as a junior with Cal, throwing for 2,320 yards with a 67.5 completion rate in the regular season. Aaron Rodgers threw for 24 touchdowns and only eight interceptions in his last college season, impressing many NFL scouts.
They commented that he was a ” talented strong-armed junior”, who “combines arm strength, mechanics and delivery to make all the throws”, but noted that his stats could be inflated due to playing in a quarter-friendly system and that he would need to adjust to the more elaborate defensive schemes of the NFL. He was confident that he would be drafted to the team he supported and grew up near, the San Francisco 49ers, who possessed the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.
Aaron Rodgers has said that he experienced much angst and restlessness when waiting to be selected several hours into the draft, as he had expected himself to be selected much sooner. Many teams drafting between the second and 23rd positions had positional needs more pressing than quarterback.
He agreed to a reported five-year, $7.7 million deal that included $5.4 million in guaranteed money and had the potential to pay him as much as $24.5 million if all incentives and escalators were met in August 2005. He spent his rookie season as the Packers’ backup quarterback behind Brett Favre.
He completed two out of seven passes and was sacked twice in his first NFL game. Aaron Rodgers continued to struggle through the preseason, before ending the preseason by converting two third downs and throwing a touchdown pass to tight end Ben Steele against the Tennessee Titans.
Aaron Rodgers was then placed in McCarthy’s “Quarterback school” for six hours a day several times a week. This focused on working on Aaron Rodgers’ motor skills such as hand-eye coordination, finger dexterity, and mechanics. McCarthy also worked on Aaron Rodgers’ release point, moving it from right beside the ear hole of his helmet to further below it, to give him a smoother release.
On November 19, 2006, Aaron Rodgers broke his left foot while playing against the New England Patriots in a 35–0 defeat at home, filling in for an injured Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers missed the remainder of the 2006 season.
Favre announced that he would stay with the Packers for the 2007 season, again postponing Aaron Rodgers’ hopes of becoming the Packers’ starting quarterback. Prior to 2007, rumors surfaced about a potential trade involving Aaron Rodgers in which he would be traded to the Oakland Raiders for wide receiver Randy Moss.
Moss was traded to the New England Patriots during the second day of the 2007 NFL Draft, and he stayed in Green Bay. He stepped in when Favre was injured in the second quarter against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday Night Football on 29th November 2007.
On 4th March 2008, Brett Favre’s retirement announcement opened up the Packers’ starting quarterback position to Aaron Rodgers for the 2008 season. Although Favre decided to return from retirement he was traded to the New York lots which meant that Aaron Rodgers would become the starter. He quickly proved that he was one of the best quarterbacks in the league by passing for 4,038 yards in his first season as a starter as well as throwing for 28 touchdowns and only 13 interceptions.
This still stands as the most interceptions he has thrown in a season. Aaron Rodgers was voted the FedEx Air award winner after passing for 328 yards and three touchdowns in a win against the Detroit Lions. Aaron Rodgers suffered a severe shoulder sprain in the game but continued to start and played well in a win against the Seattle Seahawks two weeks later, which to many proved his toughness. On October 31, 2008, Aaron Rodgers signed a six-year, $65 million contract extension through the 2014 season.
He recorded his first win in a comeback situation for the opening game of the 2009 season. The Packers were trailing at the beginning of the fourth quarter when Aaron Rodgers completed a fifty-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Greg Jennings with about a minute remaining in the game to contribute to the 21–15 victory over the Chicago Bears.
The team starts to heat up after a 4-4 start to the season and a 38-28 loss to the previously winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He and the Packers won two of their last three games, finishing the second half of the season with a 7-1 record and an overall 11-5 record good enough to secure a wild-card playoff berth and clinch the fifth seed in the playoffs.
Aaron Rodgers became the first quarterback in NFL history ever to throw for 4,000 yards in both of his first two years as a starter. His passing yardage made him second all-time in Packers history, behind only Lynn Dickey’s all-time single-season record.
In the Wild Card Round, the Packers played the Arizona Cardinals, the same team they had previously beaten the week before, 33-7. He settled down after that miscue, however, and finished the game completing 28 of 42 passes for 423 yards, with four touchdown passes all in a second-half comeback.
His 423 passing yards are the most by any quarterback in his first playoff game as well as his four touchdown passes and five total touchdowns. The ball was returned by Karlos Dansby for the winning touchdown in the 51–45 Cardinals victory. However, after Favre dropped out due to injury and Brees was replaced due to his participation in Super Bowl XLIV, Aaron Rodgers became the NFC’s starter.
He led the Packers to a 2-0 start, but then lost three of their next four games, including back-to-back overtime losses. The two overtime defeats brought Aaron Rodgers’ record in overtime games to 0-5. At midseason, Aaron Rodgers had already thrown nine interceptions compared to only throwing seven all of the previous season, and was 16th in the league with an 85.3 passer rating. He had 298 passing yards and three touchdowns to earn his first career NFC Offensive Player of the Week honor.
He sustained his second concussion of the season. Against the New England Patriots, Aaron Rodgers missed the next week’s regular-season start, ending his streak of consecutive starts at 45, which is tied for the second longest in team history. He turned around the team’s performance, they won their final two regular-season games, one of them against the New York Giants, where Aaron Rodgers completed 25 of 37 passes for 404 yards, with four touchdown passes and with a passer rating of 139.9. In the next game, they defeated the Chicago Bears by a score of 10–3 in the regular season finale.
The Packers entered the playoffs as a Wild Card and the No.6 seed. He completed 31 of 36 pass attempts for 366 yards and four touchdowns in a 48-21 blowout victory over the No. 1 seeded Atlanta Falcons. During the contest, Aaron Rodgers tied an NFL record for consecutive playoff games with at least three touchdown passes.
In the game, Aaron Rodgers completed 24 of 39 pass attempts for 304 yards and three touchdowns in the win and was named Super Bowl MVP for his performance. From his playoff performance, he became only the third player in NFL history to pass for over 1,000 yards in a single postseason and also became one of only four quarterbacks to record over 300 yards passing, with at least three touchdown passes, and no interceptions in a Super Bowl.
The Packers and Aaron Rodgers didn’t schedule unofficial off-season workouts, despite many teams doing so because of the 2011 NFL lockout. He and the Packers quickly quelled any concerns over their readiness by defeating the New Orleans Saints, who had scheduled off-season workouts, 42-34. He said in the press conference, “I was going to ask myself, what would have happened if we had offseason workouts?
I mean, could we have any faster and scored more points tonight?” Aaron Rodgers had 408 passing yards, four touchdowns, and one interception and ran for two touchdowns to earn another NFC Offensive Player of the Week honor.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers got off to a 13–0 start in 2011, tying the NFC record for most consecutive wins to start a season, but were upset by the Kansas City Chiefs 19–14 in week 15, ending their winning streak at 19 games, the second-longest winning streak in NFL history. Aaron Rodgers finished the season with 4,643 passing yards, 45 touchdown passes, and six interceptions, good for a passer rating of 122.5, which as of 2020 is the highest single-season passer rating in NFL history.
He earned NFC Offensive Player of the Month awards for September, October, and November, and FedEx Air Player of the Week six times. Aaron Rodgers was the winner of the 2011 Galloping gobbler as MVP of the Thanksgiving game between the Packers and the Detroit Lions. He played in 15 of the 16 games, with the only exception being Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, a game in which Aaron Rodgers was rested after the club clinched home-field advantage for the playoffs the previous week.
The Packers’ offense set a franchise record for points scored in a season with 560, which as of 2016 is the third-most ever behind only the 2007 Patriots and 2013 Broncos. He also won the league’s MVP award, receiving 48 of the 50 votes. Aaron Rodgers’ 2011 season was later ranked as the third-greatest passing season of all time by ESPN in 2013 and was regarded as the most efficient.
The Packers were upset by the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants in the Divisional Round by the score of 37–20. The 2011 Packers became the only team in NFL history to go 15–1 and not win a playoff game, as well as being the fourth consecutive team to win at least 15 games and not win the Super Bowl.
He and the Packers started off the 2012 season with a 30-22 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Had the Packers won the game, Boyz II Men would have sung the national anthem during their next home game at Lambeau. The Texans had allowed only six total touchdown passes during the season up to that point. During that stretch, Aaron Rodgers was named NFC Offensive Player of the Month for October.
In Week 15, Aaron Rodgers threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Packers past the Chicago Bears, 21–13, making them NFC North champions for the second consecutive year.

He had a career-high 480 passing yards to tie the franchise record in the 38-20 loss. He earned NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his effort against the Redskins.
Aaron Rodgers also became the first quarterback since Y.A. Tittle in 1962 to throw for at least 480 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions in a game. After the loss to the Bengals, the Packers started rolling, winning their next four games. Against the Baltimore Ravens, the Packers lost two receivers: Randall Cobb and James Jones.
Cobb was sidelined with a broken leg and Jones with a sprained PCL. At home against the Chicago Bears in Week 9, Aaron Rodgers was sacked by Shea McClellin. He fractured his left clavicle in the process, and the speculation for his return ranged from a few weeks to an indefinite timetable that became a weekly spectacle of whether or when he might be cleared to play again.
The Packers had fought their way back to a 7-7-1 record going into the final week of the season. On 26th December Thursday, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy announced he would return and start in the season-finale showdown against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field for the NFC North Championship.
Aaron Rodgers connected with Randall Cobb, who was also returning for his first game since breaking his leg in Week 6, for a 48-yard game-winning touchdown to clinch the NFC North and earn the right to host a home playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers as the fourth seed. Aaron Rodgers recorded only 177 yards passing, his lowest in a playoff game, and one touchdown pass. He was ranked No. 11 by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2014.

The Packers went on a four-game win streak, during which, he threw 13 touchdowns to earn NFC Offensive Player of the Week. He completed a 4th & 10 passes to wide receiver Jordy Nelson and mimicked Dan Marino’s famous fake spike play by completing a pass to wide receiver Davante Adams to get to within four yards of the endzone later in the drive.
This play would later win Aaron Rodgers the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year Award. In a Week 8 loss against the New Orleans Saints, Aaron Rodgers finished 28 of 39 for 418 yards, with one touchdown pass and two interceptions, ending his 212 consecutive attempts without an interception streak—the second longest in team history.
