    Brady is the greatest of ALL time. I dont even like Brady. Rodgers may have the better are but Brady has what matters. The Rings Rodgers cant even get out of the first round most years.

    And I dont even like Brady. But no way I would put Rodgers above him.

    No way Rodgers will retire right now, because that puts him in Canton the same year as Brady. And no way he shares that stage with Brady.
    Becoming eligible the same year as Brady puts Rodgers at risk of having to wait a year. Not a likely risk, but some voters might not want to put in too many QBs at the same time.

    I don't deny, Brady is the GOAT. But that doesn't mean Rodgers isn't a better QB. He objectively is. Just as Peyton was always a better regular season QB than Brady. But neither played as well in the post season.

    I would argue the very nature of football as the "ultimate team sport" also complicates things in ways that end up favoring Brady in the last few years where it might have hurt him in a comparison against Rodgers earlier in their careers.

    You could easily argue that Brady got carried through his first dynasty and only had to be pretty good as opposed to great, a bit akin to Aikman and the 90's Cowboys. Then when he got his other Patriots Super Bowls, you could argue he was "paying" to win by taking team-friendly contracts to allow the Pats to stack up the defenses over and over. But I think his foresight to join the Bucs when he left New England emphasizes that his own talent evaluation and ability to meld and mold team chemistry in a sport as reliant on those things as football arguably proves him "smarter" than Rodgers in an area that *should* be quantified in discussions of being great QBS.

    Rodgers has proven himself to be a drag on subpar rosters thanks to some of his attitude problems, while Brady has elevated subpar rosters with his intangibles.

    ...This is rot of why I'm fascinated by the idea of Rodgers going to Vegas, but also why I'm betting he doesn't go there; I think Rodgers and McDaniels would bring out the worst in each other.

    Teaming footballís number one egomaniac in Rodgers with a Darth Hoodie disciple (most of whom are stuck up assholes) in McDaniels would be a shit show on steroids. Thatís why Iím of the opinion that if Aaron the Pissy Packer goes anywhere (though Iím not sure he will move), itíll be to the Jets where his old Green Bay buddy, Nathaniel Hackett was recently hired as the new offensive coordinator.

    At the end of the day him being better doesnt matter much. What does he have to show for it?

    I cant stand Rodgers but he is amazing. But does being better matter when the guy you are better then has more rings and records?

    brady had great teams around him. I wont argue that. But Rodgers wasnt playing with scrubs a lot of years either.

    And that's why Brady was a better QB than Rodgers. Aaron the Pissy might be a better passer, but there's more to quarterbacking than throwing the football, and Rodgers is behind Brady in nearly everything but throwing metrics. In some cases, like leadership, exceedingly far behind.

    On athletic skills...yes Rodgers is better. He's gotten more athletic talent than Brady. Just like Murray , Jackson and Mahomes do. But Brady is the better overall QB.

    His ability to process quickly , make fast reads and generally take lesser players to Championships show he was a better QB.

    That's just the truth. Rodgers had more athletic skills but as Brady showed there is more than that.

    These are all worthy points being made.

    Rodgers is falling off a cliff.

    Brady never did.

    Brady's 3 seasons of football life (his 20s, 30s, & 40s) are all comparable to the greats in the GOAT discussion (Montana, Marino, Aikman).

    The fact he was so consistently great for so many seasons is why he is the GOAT. Being first in 9 different playoff categories is just gravy.

    Rodgers was MVP the two previous years. This year, with a BROKEN THUMB!!! he passed for 3600, 26 TDs and 12 Ints.
    Still in the top half of the League, with a broken thumb!!
