Starter Pack: Where's Aaron Rodgers?

A roundup of what’s happening on the Green Bay Packers beat.

It was such a busy Wednesday around Lambeau Field that I didn’t even get the chance to weigh in on ESPN colleague Dan Graziano’s second installment of MVP Watch.

Last week, Graziano had Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers ranked second on his preseason list behind only Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

One week later, he’s not even in the top 10. Why?

Let’s allow Graziano the chance to explain.

He wrote: “MVPs come from winning teams, from playoff teams at the very least, if not the absolute top teams in the league. So as the MVP Watch unveils its first top 10 since the 2013 season actually began, you won't find anyone on a team that lost its Week 1 game. That's right. The Watch says no to Aaron Rodgers. He may have as good or a better chance in the end to win the award as anyone on this list, but not if his team doesn't win any games.”
