New York Mets and Green Bay Packers fans both know a little something about wasted talent, especially this season.
Packers future Hall of Fame QB Aaron Rodgers is having another superb season, but all that's led to is a 4-5-1 record and spot in third place in the NFC North. Similar to the Mets' Jacob deGrom, who just won the National League Cy Young Award, despite having just 10 of his team's 77 wins this year.
Aaron Rodgers having a Jacob deGrom-like season.— Vin Masi (@VinMasi) November 16, 2018
19 TD & 1 Int with a losing record through 10 team games.
In Super Bowl era, the previous high for most TD with 1-or-fewer Int in 1st 10 games with losing record was 11 by Bernie Kosar in 1991.
That's a pretty perfect performance for someone on a bad team.
Again: if a quarterback played like Aaron Rodgers did last night over an entire season, he would set the single-season yards per attempt record, the single-season passer rating record, and have the third-most passing yards in league history.

Rodgers continues to make the players around him better, even turning wide receiver Davante Adams into potentially the No. 1 WR in fantasy football.
Greatness displayed by the likes of Rodgers and deGrom doesn't deserve to be dragged down by the sinking ships they're on. So maybe it's time for a change elsewhere within the Packers organization, as Rodgers deserves another shot at a Super Bowl title.
