So what you're implying is that any QB could've lead this squad to the NFC Championship? Gimme a break dude!
There are 2 QBs I would make the argument had the better season than Rodgers, the rest are debatable.
Brees didn't finish the season. Mahomes was banged up. Who else is there? Dak? Cousins? Watson? Brady? (Please say Brady had a better season! I dare you. XD )
Rodgers wasn't the "sole" reason, but he was a big contributing factor for us getting there.
Jesus christ. You can love Rodgers and not say stuff like that.
Rodgers was an extremely average QB last year. If you want to argue it was due to a new offense and lack of WRs then ok. Theres a reasonable argument to be made their. (Both sides can make valid arguments). Personally I'd argue that even with those limitations "if" Rodgers was playing nearly as well as some are saying he did then that would of been reflected on the field more then it was as it seemed that his accuracy even with open receivers was more of an issue then simply running the offense and making the reads.
But good lord to say that youd only argue 2 QBs had better seasons then Rodgers is just homerism at its finest. There were significantly higher then only 2 QBs that had better years. Rodgers wasnt even the most valuable or impactful player on our own offense (look at the on/off impact Jones had).
As for Gute. Hes been solid so far but it's still a lil early to judge. Probably batting around .600-.700 so far (which isnt bad by GM standards by any stetch) but he needs to get better early returns on his drafts as that seems to the weak link to his skill set at this point
