    Another Rodgers vs. Favre article? Someone needs to muster the intelligence to do a Herber vs. Isbell comparison instead.

    From 2001 till he end of 2010 season his rating on average was 78.17

    Translate that to now, Matt Moore, Kevin Kolb, Colt McCoy have a similar rating..

    His career was only 86..I was shocked it was that low..

    Personally I would not rank Favre as one of the top ten QBs of all-time (maybe top twenty?), but let me ask you guys this:
    If you are on the HOF selection committee, would you elect him in his first year of eligibility?

    Unquestionably 1st ballot HOFer. And I personally have him somewhere 8-15th on my all time QB rankings.

    He threw over 500 TDs. Thats mind boggling.

    He can not just pass but run! He is the NFL MVP and I would put my money on it if I were a betting person!

    That was pretty funny. Thanks for sharing.

    I didn't like that they more or less called Rodgers boring, though. There is much more thrill in a precisely delivered laser to a receiver that is perfectly covered than there is in watching interceptions. Overall, Rodgers is more fun to watch because he doesn't let you down as often.

    Even at 85.9 rating for his last 10 years, that is almost Cutlers career average

    In hindsight... Rodgers IS a better QB now than Brett was in his prime - and, I say that only because Rodgers is more the type of QB that I've always followed. Don't get me wrong...I've never been a Favre "hater" or "apologist"... I was NEVER a fan of "gunslinging" quarterbacking...but, it's what he had to work with and when Holmgren was in Green Bay to reign Favre's tendencies in ... his game was a thing of beauty to watch. Unfortunately, that control ended in 1999.

    Still, I don't think that anyone can argue that Favre's game was EVER better than where Rodgers is at now ... well, not with a straight face anyway. When I say that Rodgers' game astounds me, I'm not polishing that particular apple at all...it does indeed 'astound' me. Am I in awe??? Nope....I'm not. There is just no rational comparison - PLUS, the make up of the Pack is radically different than it was during Brett's tenure here.

    I don't take a thing away from Favre...the guy WAS the show here -- and anything else said about the guy is superfluous. He is now Green Bay Packers history.
