5. Healthy Aaron Rodgers

When at full strength, Rodgers is arguably the greatest quarterback in the league. His ability to improvise and make any throw, under any circumstance is unmatched. He started last season looking like he was on a mission to win his third MVP. If it weren’t for his second broken collarbone, the team very likely would have extended their postseason streak to nine.

Rodgers is back and has plenty of pieces around him to show that he is still arguably the league’s best quarterback. In his 10 seasons as a starter, he has put together a highlight reel a mile long. This 12 minutes long clip doesn’t even include every amazing play he’s made throughout his career. Rodgers has been exciting fans for 10 years, and this year will be more of the same.

Rodgers makes the extraordinary look ordinary with a simple flick of the wrist. He and Adams have begun developing an amazing chemistry. Adams leads the league in touchdowns over the last two seasons. He is hoping to reach 20 this season, which isn’t as outlandish as it may seem. He’s the clear number one wide receiver in this offense, and Rodgers will look his way often.

Rodgers isn’t as young as he was, but he isn’t slowing down. He may have lost Jordy Nelson this offseason, but he is set to torch the NFL anyway.
