One more thing Rodgers is the best at: moving merchandise. (US PRESSWIRE)

Well, this certainly won't make Brett Favre happy: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, in addition to having all of his good fortune gifted to him by his predecessor's hard work, is also leading NFL jersey sales.

The latest numbers were released Wednesday and it's just more evidence that Rodgers is at the top of his game. He's fresh off Super Bowl MVP honors and is currently in charge of the league's most efficient offense (highlighted by his performance last week against the Broncos: 29 of 38 for 408 yards, four touchdown passes, two touchdown runs and -- to steal our own material -- the inevitably awesome championship belt end-zone routine).

According to NFLShop.com (via CNBC's Darren Rovell), Tom Brady and Michael Vick were Nos. 2 and 3 on the list, followed by Troy Polamalu (who was first at the end of the 2010 regular season), Clay Matthews, Drew Brees, and three Cowboys -- Tony Romo, Miles Austin and Jason Witten -- rounding out the top 10.

Noticeably absent? Tim Tebow.

Rovell explains: "Lack of seeing playing time hurt two notable players. In the offseason, Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was in the top 10 of jersey sales at No. 10. As Tebow hasn't played, he has slipped dramatically. He fell on Wednesday's list, based on sales from April 1 to Sept. 30, to No. 24. Peyton Manning, who hasn't taken a snap for the Colts this year, fell from 9th to 13th.

"Other players that saw a notable dropoff were Pittsburgh Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger, Rashard Mendenhall and Mike Wallace were in the Top 25 in the offseason, but didn't make the list this year. Hines Ward dropped from No. 8 to No. 25. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, who was at No. 24 in the offseason, also dropped off the list."

The only rookie to make the top 25? Panthers savior Cam Newton, whose jersey outsold Philip Rivers'.

To recap: in addition to NFL quarterbackin', ironically awesome facial hair, keepin' it real, and selling insurance, Rodgers can also move merchandise like nobody's business.

Since this is a country of bandwagon consumers, I see Matthew Stafford and Megatron, aka Calvin Johnson, joining Suh in  the top 20 by year's end. I know it's not cool to rep THE D but people can't deny this team and their talent plus star power. Go Lions!!! Spank da Bears on MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL!!
