Aaron Rodgers has been dominating the league for a long time. He is coming off a second consecutive MVP season at 38 years old. Despite his long successful career, he is still searching for his second Super Bowl championship. That is the only thing holding back his legacy from being compared to the likes of Tom Brady. Talent-wise, there is no question.
Unfortunately for Rodgers, he is running out of time to improve his legacy in regard to team success.
Let’s take a look at how many times the Green Bay Packers won games against teams with a winning record with Aaron Rodgers as their starting quarterback.
The reason for QB wins against winning teams
I started to dive into this stat for every quarterback because the new hot argument is to say that a certain quarterback didn’t beat any good teams. I often see people use this argument to say players like Kirk Cousins and Matthew Stafford are not good and just put up empty stats. At the end of the day, there is much more to the story.
First off and most importantly, quarterback wins are a team statistic. Secondly, very few quarterbacks in the NFL have a winning record against teams who finished the season above .500 in the league.
There are a lot of moving parts involved in football. While winning and losing is the most important stat, it is one that unfairly gets attributed to quarterbacks.
