The top 4 is about right but 1 and 2 need to be flipped.
And nobody has had to do more with less than Rodgers unless they are strictly talking about wide receivers.
Take Rodgers out of the equation and the Packers are no better than 8-8 and both McCarthy and Thompson are both gone.
I don't believe taking Brady out of the picture will produce such dire consequences for the Patriots.
Yeah I'd put Rodgers first right now, if that was the intent of these rankings. This isn't based upon a QBs body of work, rather who would you pick at QB if you could pick anyone, and that's Rodgers.
Regardless of surrounding players at crunch time, let's assume they're all good, the QB carries the team when it's money time.
In the Packers' case, and in the rare cases when a superior O defeats a superior D, the QB has to carry a team. I didn't say an elite D was always required to win the SB, just the majority of the time. Thankfully Rodgers is one QB great enough to make this happen. Hopefully the D continues the upward trend from last year and all three units contribute to a win in SB 50. That sounds like something we can all agree would be a great thing.I thought you were convinced defense win championships.

Agree with the list completely. Rodgers is 6-5 in the playoffs with 2 NFCCG's and 1 SB appearance and 1 win. Brady is 21-8 in the playoffs with 7 AFCCG appearances and 6 SB appearances and 4 SB wins. It is not even a question to anyone except in the eyes of Packer fans.
As much as I love Aaron, his playoff success is rather pedestrian when compared to the "great" QB's and downright pathetic (2-5) when you take away the one SB win.
Aaron has yet to even beat Favre for playoff success let alone the likes of Brady, Montana, Bradshaw, Aikman, Starr, Staubach, Roethlisberger, Flacco, Eli Manning....
Rodgers is great but he has miles to go to even remotely be considered as the the best.
Yep. Rodgers 2x NFL MVP, 1x Super Bowl MVPRodgers is the best QB in the league right now. Brady is arguably the best all time or at least in the discussion.
Yep. Rodgers 2x NFL MVP, 1x Super Bowl MVP
Brady 2x NFL MVP, 3x Super Bowl MVP
Rodgers is at least one more Super Bowl MVP and five more years of production away from the discussion.
Brady has logged 13 years of a lot of wins, yards and touchdowns. Rodgers has 7. 6.5 actually with 9 impressive games in 2013.
