We did not witness Rodgers remotely at his best in 2015, but has he ever been more resourceful or shown a greater flair for the dramatic, turning the late-game Hail Mary into a high percentage pass? The Green Bay passing game never truly got in sync after the preseason loss of No. 1 receiver Jordy Nelson last year, but he’s still in his physical prime at 32 and capable of dissecting defenses with his deadly accurate right arm. Even if he didn’t crack 4,000 yards in the air a year ago, if there was a must-win game today, there’s no one who could be trusted more under center. With a healthy Nelson returning to the lineup, look for a highly motivated Rodgers to resume his rightful place as the game’s most complete quarterback in this passing-centric league.
