Aaron Rodgers’ Brother Jordan: Starting QB at Vanderbilt


Aaron Rodgers is on his way to having a NFL MVP type season. He’s put up incredible, video game like numbers as his Green Bay Packers are undefeated; and playing with an abandon that makes us believe the Pack could go 16-0. As long as the offense carries the load for the defense, like earlier today in the win over the San Diego Chargers.

His little brother Jordan Rodgers? His season isn’t going quite as well. However, he is a SEC starting signal caller, as he leads the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Jordan Rodgers is a 6-2, 210 pound junior from Chico, CA  who assumed the Commodores starting gig in midseason. On the year, he’s thrown for 5 TD and 5 INT, 959 yards for a passer rating of 116.6 (remember in college football they use a different, extremely inflated computational formula than the NFL).

Jordan saw his first major action in mop-up duty versus the Alabama Crimson Tide, and he’s seeing his number improve incrementally each week.

He had his best game yesterday versus the Florida Gators, going 19-28 for 297 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT. He also ran for 96 yards and a TD versus Army. Unfortunately, his ‘dores are 4-5 on the season.
