Yes I know in a macro sense that is true. Following the entire context of that post, I was speaking on a basis applied to their “individual total Postseason games” to level the playing field for Rodgers. Brady has played in more contests altogether and so using a metric of success with what Rodgers was dealt seems more fair. Rodgers has a good enough sample size to apply a %I'm absolutely convinced that any team trading for Rodgers wants to him to be there for the start of training camp at the latest. Therefore I don't expect it will take until August or September for the trade to be completed.
Rodgers has a higher passer rating than Brady in every single round of the playoffs.
Wild Card: 111.7
Conference Championship: 83.7
Super Bowl: 111.5
Wild Card: 85.1
Conference Championship: 82.7
Super Bowl: 97.7
I'm well aware the sample size is small for Rodgers in Super Bowls. My point is that Brady wouldn't have made it to as many Super Bowls as he did by being surrounded with the same talent as Rodgers. In my opinion the numbers clearly support that.
Just for the record, Brady has played in 10x as many Super Bowls as Rodgers.
That I 100% agree with. I never contested that point if that’s what you were driving at. To that point, I was one of (if not the) 1st to post the team comparison in Defensive ratings years ago and I’ve done it since. I saw it eluded to in an article I read like5 years ago and did the math.My point is that Brady wouldn't have made it to as many Super Bowls as he did by being surrounded with the same talent as Rodgers.

Your post, while maybe not intentional came across as “Brady is inferior to Rodgers in the Postseason” so I’m sticking up for him because that really isn’t the case.
I’m quite sure if you flipped the script (switched teams) on those 2 QB’s you’d probably get almost exact opposite results. Although Brady seems to beat Rodgers when it matters most, so if I had my choice in a SB contests I’d take Brady. He’s proven not to dismiss his X factor in the pressure cooker. Look no further than a head to head game example with the 2020 NFC game at Lambeau btw. Who’s normally favored at home??
We’ve got 1st and 8 for a TD and we went Inc-Inc-Inc in that pressure cooker situation.
On the ensuing drive, what did Brady do in his pressure cooker? He sent Rodgers Home that’s what he did. Advantage >Brady
Aarons a better Golfer though
