    I am seriously hoping AR can step it up BUT....

    At this point, he hasn't surpassed Brett yet.

    Favre 3 MVPs
    Rodgers 2 MVPs

    Favre 2 SB appearances
    Rodgers 1 SB appearance

    Favre 4 x League Leader TD Passes
    Rodgers 1 x League Leader TD Passes

    Yeah, at throwing interceptions and stabbing the fans in the back by going to a rival team.

    I used to feel that the only way for A-Rod to be better was to win another SB.
    But seeing how that hasn't happened again yet, I'll just have to realize he is better in other ways.

    Favre has 1 Super Bowl. Rodgers has 1 Super Bowl and one Super Bowl MVP. Rodgers has already had a more successful career.

    Aaron has been B.A.D.

    The QB rating is the most overrated stat in sports considering it doesn't account for SACKS!!!
    Also the amount of high draft capital (2nd round+) WRs AR had compared to Favre
    ALSO... the RULE CHANGES...

    I'm just hoping Aaron can prove me and all of us wrong

    Take of your homer glasses, Aaron has NOT been that good since he got hurt last year

    Skill wise Aaron is better. And I dont think its close. HOWEVER! That being said if I was making a team from scratch, I would pick Favre first. Without hesitation. Why you ask? Good question. And I dont think there is a concrete answer to why. I think that is why people who defend Aaron over Favre get so heated because there isn't something like stats to turn to necessarily. But Favre inspired people on the field. He instilled hope into his teammates. I don't think Aaron does that or at least not often. Will Favre throw that game ending pick? Probably. But did he at least go out there every single time and have us think, damn, we may pull this off. Just with his attitude he gave us hope. Aaron I think in those moments knows a comeback may be unlikely and he will show that. Slow getting to the line. No talking in between plays. Going through the motions. That rubs a lot of fans the wrong way. Is it honest? Yes. We arent gonna win and Aaron knows it and is playing like such. But Favre acted like it was a tie game and we had to score. That cant be taught. Its something inside you. Ill just stop there, I could keep going lol

    Of course there are all the successful Hail Mary's by Rodgers......but I do agree with you on attitude. I will take Favre's on field attitude any day over Aaron's. As far as comparing them though and who is better, I think there are arguments both ways and it all comes down to personal preference as to how you will remember each guy. On that note, Rodgers career and story hasn't fully been written, so he may add or subtract things that people will want to remember him by.

    I have mentioned this in a past post once, do you remember when Rodgers was celebrating with the belt sign and all that? What changed? The belt was a symbol for an accomplishment that the team could rally behind and have fun with. I know circumstances change and losing is not fun, but football is a game. Once you stop having fun playing the game, win or lose, what else ya got? I think Rodgers needs to simplify things and just have fun. Winning will come later

    What has changed? Not much to celebrate.

    Your post made me want to "dig into the belt", because I honestly didn't know the full story behind it. Kind of an interesting read.....

    I'll check this out. And yes definitely not much to celebrate. I think his injuries helped kill the mood also if you will. I always looked at it as sort of a rally the troops gesture. So even if it was a struggling season, maybe one belt gesture would build momentum and who knows. Pure speculation of course

    Sure Rodgers hasnt been good this year but he has been WAY BETTER in his bad year than Favre was in

    1999
    2000
    2005
    2006
    2008
    2010

    Look up those numbers. I know the rules changed but those rules were in place in 2005 (look at Mannings numbers over that same time frame). Favre had some brutal seasons with way more INTS but also a lower completion percentage - even later in his career like 2005, 2006, 2010.

    Favre was great, but you lived AND died with him. I think he holds the record for most INTs. Don’t get me wrong, I loved watching him and love what he did for GB. Was he better than Rodgers? Not in my opinion, but it’s just an opinion.

    Your last sentence is very true. This year MIGHT have been different without the week 1 knee injury, but I doubt it. He’s having a bad year. Hope it’s an aberration.

    Favre’s Ability to lift those around him is better than Rodgers. That much I’ll admit.

    The only thing that matters is wins. Look at games to date. Favre has more wins, better playoff record and two Super Bowl appearances to one. Packers had one losing season with Favre and they’ve had two with Rodgers (three if you count last tears injury season). Keep your interceptions stats. I’ll take wins

    Rodgers is more gifted when it comes to accuracy, careful with the ball. Favre leadership, giving his all, stronger arm. On paper Aaron, wins Favre, oh and Favre come from behind win percentage is also higher

    You serious ???

    Favre:

    Years with Top 3 defense - 2 / 15 years
    Years with Top 5 defense - 3 / 15 years
    Years with Top 10 defense 6 / 15 years

    Years with Top 3 offense - 2 / 15
    Years with Top 5 offense - 4 / 15
    Years with Top 10 offense - 9 / 15

    Rodgers:

    Years with Top 3 def - 2 / 11 years
    Years with Top 5 def - 2 / 11 years
    Years with Top 10 def - 4 / 11 years

    Years with Top 3 offense - 3 / 11
    Years with Top 5 offense - 5 / 11
    Years with Top 10 offense - 8 / 11

    Suffice to say, with a Top defense Packers under Favre went to Back-to-Back Super Bowls, not to mention only one single losing season ever ...

    I still think Favre accomplished more as a Packer with less overall talent than Rodgers has so far ...

    So by your facts

    Farve 11 times with top 10 def

    Rodgers 8 times with top ten def.

    But you always been Brett fan

    Uhm .... its 6 years with a top 10 def out of 15 years (0,4) for Brett vs 4 out of 11 (0,36) for Rodgers ... - and How many times as division Winners and play offs ? :D

    But it seems to me that your bias towards Favre makes you ignore the fact that overall the team around Rodgers in generel has been better than it was during Favres time ... Yet Rodgers still hasnt accomplished as much with the Packers ...

    And Yes, you are Right - I’ve always been more fond of Favre than Rodgers, because Favre was a Leader and the team played harder for him, than They seem to do for Rodgers ... ;) - If you recall, I questioned Rodgers ability to be a Leader a very long time ago ...
