“This,” Rodgers said in training camp, “is the most important year.” For him, he meant it. Last year, Brian Hoyer had a better passer rating and yards-per-attempt average than Rodgers, who was mortal for the first time in his NFL life. If he plays at a Rodgers level, Green Bay has a great shot to hoist the Lombardi next February. If he plays at a 2015 level, the Packers won’t win the NFC North. Pretty big pressure.
