Rodgers has finished the 2010 regular NFL season holding the third-best passer rating at 101.2, trailing just behind Tom Brady (111.0) and Philip Rivers (101.8). He was only 78 yards shy of passing for 4,000 yards for the third consecutive season, which would have made him the seventh in history.
He's got a lot of talent.
In the game against the the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Jan. 23, 2011, Rodgers played with an injured shoulder and suffered a blow to the head in the fourth quarter. The shoulder had been injured previously in 2008.
In the game on Sunday, Rodgers threw his first two interceptions in postseason play. It's questionable if his injury played a major role. Rodgers also threw for only 244 yards, as opposed to the 366 from the week before.
There was speculation that the head blow Rodgers received during the game caused yet another concussion. Rodgers has had two previous concussions. Julius Peppers, Chicago defensive end, had a personal foul called on him when his helmet made contact with Rodgers jaw, rattling Rodgers' head inside his helmet.
Rodgers finished the game without being checked for a concussion.
Rodgers is considered to be fine for the time being, but questions are being raised as to what will happen if he takes another hit to his shoulder or suffers from another concussion in the upcoming Super Bowl.
