Is it lower than Favre's????


Favre already had 3 MVPs, 2 Super Bowl appearances by this point in his career


Just curious

I blame Dom and TT more for that. Had Rodgers played with any of those mid 1990s GB Defenses, there’s no question in my mind he would have been ultra successful.

Let’s see what Pettine can do. I’m actually excited for the Pack, we’re about to see a 1/2 ton truck of resources that should start pulling their own weight and then some.

I'm not a fan of these type of questions because there are too many variables that lead to any form of accurate conclusion. Rodgers' entire career has been the the current NFL "passing league", whereas only Favre's final years in Green Bay were (most of Favre's was run game and defense-minded football). Not to mention the players, coaches, and executives are all different for the 2 quarterbacks.

Favre was amazing as a Packer and so is Rodgers. They will eventually become teammates in the NFL HoF, and that's the easiest way to determine a player's legacy.

I'd say at this point, it's practically a wash, or maybe Favre a fraction ahead. Favre has the extra MVP and Super Bowl appearance, never missed a game, and most intangibles - against Rodgers' stats. But Rodgers has some time left.

This makes me wonder though:
If the Packers and Patriots switched places and the Packers played in the AFC East, and the Patriots placed in the NFC North, would the Packers have any more Super Bowls? Not that I'd want to do it, because I'm proud of Green Bay's NFL/NFC heritage.

The Patriots would still have been a dominant team as they actually have a better winning percentage against NFC opponents since the last realignment in 2002. I don't believe the Packers would have won more Super Bowls playing in the AFC.

I think they would have least gotten to another Super Bowl or two, hard to say if they would have won one. There would have been no Giants, 49ers, Seahawks, or Falcons standing in their way. And playing in the AFC East, they might have gotten more home field playoff games. IMO, of course.

The Packers would have had to face some tough opponents in the AFC as well.

I don't understand why we keep doing this to ourselves.

So many things have to fall into place for a team to make it to the Super Bowl, much less win it. Not the least of which is the cap. After a SB win, you have to deal with everyone looking to cash in AND your draft position drops dramatically every year until the wheels fall off for a couple of years.

Yeah yeah... I know... that doesn't seem to impact the Patriots... and I don't care about that argument. A franchise QB is going to chew up a larger portion of available cap space and you can only swap pieces in and out of the puzzle to try to keep 'er rollin'

Today, Aaron should surpass Brett's record for TD's.

Say what you want about Brett and Aaron's respective legacies, pro or con on either guy, and you'll probably be accurate. How weird is it though that both of these guys end up being difficult at the end quarters of their career? BUT end up being almost mirror opposite situations. Favre wanted to stay (after years of theatrics) and Rodgers wants to leave (after years of strange girlfriends) - and both play out in the national limelight.

Well, he stayed out of camp ... demanded and got a contract re-boot - his post-game interview and hug with what's her name sounded more like a "I'm gonna miss this place" more than it sounded like "I'm here as long as they'll pay me too much".

Sure, his arm talent is possibly the best ever. But his mental game leaves much to be desired when it matters most.
Rodgers is a puzzle. He doesn't seem to be Mr. Clutch in the big games. But then again he often puts up better stats than the team that beat us. So often he has to fight an incompetent squad on his own team, usually defense but special teams this year. It's a tough one. I'd really like to know how he would have fared in Tom Brady's shoes over the years.
