Rodgers does it again; grabs October award

Posted Nov 3, 2011

Aaron Rodgers’ domination of the “NFC Offensive Player of the Month” award continues. The Packers quarterback is the winner for October, which makes it two down and two to go for the 2011 season.

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy made the announcement to the team on Thursday morning. Such announcements have become routine this season, as the Packers’ 7-0 start has the franchise dominating in the player-of-the-month and player-of-the-week categories.

Rodgers has won each of the season’s two offensive-player-of-the-month awards, which means he’s halfway home to a season sweep. It has never been accomplished.

His 12 touchdown passes are the most by a Packers quarterback in October in team history; Lynn Dickey threw 11 in October of 1984. Rodgers’ 1,455 yards passing and the 12 touchdown passes are personal bests in any month, and he padded his NFL passer rating lead in October with a 129.4 rating. Rodgers’ yards per pass attempt, 10.70, also led the league. The yardage total is the second-best in October in team history; Dickey threw for 1,482 yards in 1983, but that was in five games, Rodgers’ total is in four games.

This marks the fourth time in Rodgers’ career that he has won the NFC offensive player of the month award. He won for December/January last season, which means he’s on a three-month roll, and he also won in October of 2009.

“This offseason, one of my goals was to decrease the space between a good game and a poor game,” Rodgers told reporters on Wednesday.

Through eight weeks of the 2011 NFL season, Rodgers has yet to have anything but a good game.
