    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rodgers much worse than Brady :  Nope, i am telling you Tom Brady is better than Aaron Rodgers. Brady has never had a losing season. Only missed the playoffs once as a starter and they finished tied for first place that year. He got Weis, McDaniels and now O'Brien head coaching gigs (Mangini and Crennel probably were helped also). He's the only player to be on all 5 super bowl teams during the Belichek era and thats not a coincidence. He probably has the greatest or close to the greatest winning % of any QB ever. Even Montana had losing seasons under Bill Walsh (the other great coach/QB combo of the modern era).

    Better in 2011: Rodgers
    Better overall career: Brady

    Roethlisberger made the super bowl last season. Brady did not. No one would say that Roethlisberger is better than Brady. Brady making the super bowl doesnt necessarily mean he had a better 2011 campaign than Rodgers...it just means the pats had a better 2011 campaign than the packers

    And if you want to compare who the better QB is overall...then you'd have to wait for both of their careers to end before making a fair statement.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rodgers much worse than Brady : Once again the idiotic arguement of championships. Football is a team sport. To include the success of a team in an invividual vs individual comparison is idiotic. Tom Brady didnt go out and win 3 super bowl championships in 01, 03, 04. The New England Patriots went out and won 3 super bowl championships in 01,03, 04.  Your gonna tell me Trent Dilfer is as good as Peyton Manning and Brett Favre?

    Okay, then do you think Drew Bledsoe is better than Joe Montana.  He had better stats.

    There is a reason QB's are given credits for wins.  In most games they can win or lose the game by leading one drive at the end.  Kind of like Tom Brady did in 2001, 2003, and 2004 and Manning didn't do in 2009. 

    You can look at Marino's games and see that he failed to make that one pass and that one drive in the playoffs over and over.  And if he can't make the play that wins the game than what's the point in discussing anyones greatness.  The point is to win.

    Anyone can rack up stats if they throw the ball enough.  And if you look at all the all time leaders in stats the only difference between the 1st guy and the 21st guy is that they threw more passes.  For example Favre.  If you took any decent QB and extended their season average over 21 years they would own the all time records.  Most QB's just don't start that young and don't want to play that lone.

    That's why stats mean less.  The point is to win, and if you're not winnng than who cares what the QB does.

    " Football is a team sport. It takes 53 players playing together to win a game.Brady is also 6/7 years older. To use that comparison is idiotic at best"

    Postseason performance is where legends are made in the NFL. QB performance in the postseason absolutely counts for legacy. That's why Montana is at the top of the heap not Marino. And before you bring up Dilfer again, one championship is not enough to solidify your legacy as a QB, not without other stats to back it up. Peyton has such great stats that getting his one ring did help him. But if he retires with only one ring he will NOT go down at the best of all time, that's how it goes. 

    Right now Brady's postseason accomplishments dwarf Rodgers, so he's the better quarterback at the moment. After they are both retired we can do the ultimate analysis. Right now we can't. 

    Having said that Rodgers is an awesome QB who had a great season, as good a regular season as anyone in the league. He may well be a HOF quarterback someday. For now, Eli Manning is the one who has the chance from tne NFC to really boost his legacy. Rodgers is watching from the couch and that's how it goes, whether you think it's fair or not.
