Football Outsiders: Rodgers and Jennings Among The Best

Football Outsiders has posted their Week 4 Quick Reads, and Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers comes out as the best quarterback of the week. It's not surprising since he scored six touchdowns with only one turnover, but it was mentioned that this game will lose a little of its shine once the opponent adjustments reflect the Broncos weak defense. He moves ahead of QB Tom Brady in their cumulative rankings for the season.

For a second opinion, ESPN's Week 4 Total QBR ranked Rodgers behind QB Matt Hasselbeck. Really. While Hasselbeck has played better than I expected this season, he had a remarkable game on Sunday by throwing for three touchdowns on only 20 pass attempts (21 "action plays" as ESPN calls them). 

WR Greg Jennings gets another mention as the 3rd best wide receiver of the week. He caught the first six pass attempts thrown to him, including a touchdown. For the second week in a row, Jennings is behind Patriots WR Wes Welker, who's on pace to go for over 2400 yards this season.
