Green Bay Packers

Vinnie Iyer of the Sporting News on quarterback Aaron Rodgers: "What makes him special beyond the obvious assets of arm strength, accuracy and leadership are what also separate [Tom] Brady, [Peyton] Manning and [Drew] Brees from the second tier of NFL quarterbacks: relentless drive to stay ahead of all competition."

Minnesota Vikings
