      Brady is not the greatest specifically because he missed the playoffs only once in his career, because he has the most rings or has lead the team with the longest streak of sustained dominance in NFL history, because he has some of the best career stats, because he has some of the most memorable clutch moments, because of his storybook like career, because he seems to raise the level of play of his teammates, or because he is humble and always defers credit to others. He is the greatest because of all of those things. No other player has the same combination of all of those attributes and accomplishments.

        Rodgers is the most gifted from the neck down, and Brady is the most gifted from the neck up.

                  I don’t think anyone has ever made a different argument other than the rings. Watch a fucking highlight tape and see the difference of the QBs. And Brady’s defense doesn’t give up 30+ points a game. Tom Brady is a part of the system; Aaron Rodgers IS the system.

                      I realllly want to punch that other dude's face...He got a punchable face, a stupid haircut and the worst line in saying former teammates are jealous because Aaron has "achieved more than them". Rodgers is a QB and Jennings is q WR, how tf do you compare achievements here?

                                    Saying rodgers is in the same league as tom brady is laughable, theres only 1 qb that you can say if he stays at the same level of consistency he has the chance to be in the top 5 qbs of all time .. And it is russel wilson.. Dont believe me, go look at wilson compared to rodgers, newton, and matt ryan or any qb in the league other then tom brady.. I didnt believe it either..

                                            Ok so it looks like no one in the comments agrees with me, but I will say that Aaron Rodgers is a better QB than Brady. Let's start with the rings argument. Brady won 3 rings and had been to 4 SBs before Rodgers was in the league, so it's not really a 1-to-1 comparison. But even if we ignore that, what did Brady have in those games that Rodgers never had? Bill Belichick (and multiple cheating controversies, but I think it's a little dumb to mention those as a knock against Brady), great defense, and loads of help from the running game. GB had a great defense when they beat Pittsburgh, but after that, their defense was never top tier. Secondly, Brady won 3 rings BEFORE he was a great QB. So really, the rings argument is stupid. Second thing I want to mention is that Rodgers is the only reason his team wins games, and I can't say that for Brady. The problem the Packers have had as of the last few seasons is that they over rely on Rodgers' ability to make miraculous plays. Yes, we've seen him complete two late game hail marys in the same season, and yes, we've seen him throw perfect passes while on the run avoiding a sack in the playoffs, but that's not how you should plan for the game to go. I think Brady is the example of when everything goes right. And that is definitely points for Brady, but I think Rodgers is the better QB because I, as a Lions fan, have seen him make the plays no one is supposed to be able to make time and time again. Brady rarely is forced to throw to someone who isn't wide open. Again, that's not a knock against him, but it's a plus for Rodgers who can run and use his feet like Russell Wilson, but then thread the needle BETTER than Brady. For everyone in the comments who thinks I'm just being a Tom Brady hater, I get it. It sounds stupid comparing someone with 1 ring to a guy with 6 and who has been to 9 SBs, but look at the tape and tell me if Brady and Rodgers switched teams, that Brady would be better. He wouldn't be. Rodgers just makes those throws that look like they came out of a Madden game where all the sliders are up to 100 and his stats have been boosted to 99 everything. But go ahead, and keep arguing based on rings if you want to lol

                                            Max really needs to that that presnap penalty go. He acts like they should not have called it. If that had happened to Mahomes he wouldn't even bring it up.

                                                  Stop saying because of belichek, it's because brady doesn't have an attitude problem like most players do.

                                                      Max is so Dumb. Aaron Rodgers is a Loser. He is not a winner. A head coach has nothing to do with it. The QB is the player that brings everyone together. The QB is the leader. Aaron Rodgers does not deserve to be in this conversation. I’m embarrassed that so many stupid people try to compare and lift Aaron Rodgers to this level and he does not deserve it at all. Max K should be ashamed of himself but he’s too dumb to realize it. I’m embarrassed by Aaron Rodgers, he runs around like a chicken with his head cut off and throws to receivers that have to “break the play” and come running back to Rodgers. When they catch it it call “unbelievable” when in reality it’s should be a mistake. Rodgers is not good enough to play football with professional play calling. He has to run around like a baby hoping someone comes running back to him “uncovered of course because it’s not in the play” and that receiver bails him out but the loser Aragon Rodgers gets the credit for a unprofessional play. I’m just discussed. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t even belong in the league. I can’t believe so many people think he as good as he his.... he’s a loser

                                                        I always get all cringy when I listen to the "Oh but brady got Belichick, so he's got an absurd advantage due to having the best coach" or something the like..

                                                        I wonder if people remember how Belichick was as a coach before Brady became the QB, as in how Belichick's record as a Head Coach was before 2001. I seem to remember that before becoming a head coach, Belichick was a defensive coordinator. QB's focus more on offense no? So please tell me how a defensive minded coach is a huge advantage to have as a QB.

                                                        Not saying that Belichick is bad, just that it feels like a lot of people just say "But brady's got Belichick" and think that Brady's success is all due to his coach... right..

                                                        Maybe I am wrong, I don't know what happen in the locker room, video room etc when it comes to preperation that Patriots do before the season start, games etc..

It is injuries, lack of talent around him and he doesn't have a coach like Belichick. Brady takes average players and wins with them while Rodgers has talented players and still doesn't get the job done. He seems like a good guy but everyone in the Packers organization must get sick of taking all the blame for the team failing.

The point is if Rodgers is trailing by 2 points or more in the 4th quarter then you've got NEXT TO NO SHOT of winning the game. A TD, FG...it doesn't matter. He ain't getting it. Also, the reason you think this is an 'idiotic stat' is because you've got absolutely NO WAY to justify it. Hopefully you will hold true to your comment that you are done with this. It would be the only time you showed any intelligence in this entire thread. As for calling me 'retarded', I think anyone reading this thread will be able to tell who the mentally challenged one is. Take care Salty!

FYI...you score 1 point by kicking an extra point. I'm not sure why you needed to know that though and I'm not sure why you are asking how you score 1 point in the NFL. I have to say, this back and forth has been hysterical since you can't even grasp the context of the argument. Let me try to break this down for you. Lets say that the Packers are playing the Patriots. It is the 4th quarter. The Patriots scored a TD and extra point while the Packers kicked 2 FG's. The score is 7-6 Patriots. This means that Aaron MIGHT be able to bring them back to win. Now lets say the Patriots scored a TD, XP and a FG while the Packers scored a TD and made a 2PT conversion. This would mean that the Patriots have a 10-8 lead and Aaron has NEXT TO NO CHANCE of leading his team to a victory in the 4th quarter. Is that so hard to understand?? For normal people, no, but for people who drool on themselves and need to wear velcro sneaker (Salt) I guess it would be.
