With three more touchdown passes Green Bay Packers’ quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, will be the first ever to throw for 300 hundred touchdowns before throwing 100 interceptions.
Rodgers currently sits at 297 touchdowns and 72 interceptions. With that said, it is safe to say he will break this historical record.
Joining 10 other quarterbacks with 300-plus touchdowns, Rodgers will certainly stick out among having a drastically lower interception total.
According to Michael David Smith, of NBC, here is the total of interceptions for the other 10 when they reached the number 300:
Peyton Manning – 152
Brett Farve – 175
Drew Brees – 154
Tom Brady – 115
Dan Marino – 169
Fran Tarkenton – 219
Eli Manning – 205
Philip Rivers – 146
Ben Roethlisberger – 160
John Elway – 226
Yes, it is true, Rodgers has only 72…
Chances are strong Rodgers could break this record either in the first or second week of this upcoming NFL season.

This milestone record has widely been discussed over the past few days and sparked a topic on FS1’s Undisputed:
Rob Parker – longtime columnist – joined the show to say, not only is Rodgers the best in the history of the NFL but in the history of sports.
“Better than Bonds?” Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe asks, “yes,” Parker responds.
While acknowledging he is not the most accomplished ever, he does his job better than anyone ever has.
Parker is spot on when brings up Rodgers is the most skilled, accurate, and efficient.
On top of it all, his numbers back it up!
Sharpe adds that words can not even give Rodgers justice. And predicts he will have over 500 touchdowns in his career with fewer than 125 interceptions before his career ends.
The highest passer rating and touchdown-to-interception ratio of all-time is also held by Mr.Rodgers… and it isn’t even close.
To convince the one man on the table that disagrees, Skip Bayless, Sharpe says to build the perfect quarterback one would want legs like Elway, an arm like Marino, accuracy like Montana, and Rodgers is THAT all wrapped in one.
So, yes, like Parker says, “It isn’t even close” Rodgers is the greatest of all-time.
Tom Brady had played in 34 playoff games, his defense had given up more than 30 points… three times. Rodgers’ defense is averaging to give up 36 a game in losses.
Rodgers has NEVER scored less than 20 in a playoff game, Brady has nine times.
If only he had the team to back him up. If so, he would have the rings as well.
