Who do you think is better?

Many people say Rodgers. I can take Favre although I enjoy watching Aaron Rodgers play. So I guess Rodgers would be my guess but I still miss Brett Favre. Many Packers fans take Rodgers. Plus there were two seasons when Favre, as a Viking, was booed by Packer fans at Lambeau Field.

We've gone this route several times probably, Favre will probably hold some records but overall big picture Aaron is a better QB. He puts the team first, no silly demands like a separate locker area, special parking place, and there's more I'm sure. Favre was not a student of the game, did not want to do the meetings/class room part, early training in Spring, all he wanted to do was show up and play on his schedule, the rules for the team were not his rules.

Of course, there is the matter of the gun slinger/INTs, Aaron will never have that record. He watched Favre for 3 yrs., so this is why he holds the ball too long, he doesn't want those records.

I miss Favre, but I always enjoy watching Aaron Rodgers play. He's a good quarterback. He's no Chad Pennington or Brett Favre, but I bet Rodgers is a lot better than Pennington. Plus during the days when Favre was playing, Madden really loved Favre. I really don't know if he ever liked Rodgers. Plus, I was told that during the Packers-Eagles game that Troy Aikman said that the Packers are nothing without Rodgers.

Also Discount Daaa-ble check! I like the commercials Rodgers is in, especially the plane commercial and the Show Me What You Got Raji State Farm commercials.

Rodgers is better. End of story.

Favre was good, but nowhere near as good as most people make him out to be, all of his records are a result of longevity and durability moreso then incredible skill. If a QB like Brady, P Manning, or Brees played as many consecutive games as Favre did, they would blow his yardage and TD records away while not throwing nearly as many picks.

He was a tough SOB, but he was also a bonehead at too many of the wrong moments.

Looking at the last 20 or so years, I've got Brady and Favre as the two best QBs, with Manning a distant 3rd. I'm a Saints fan but I have to say, had the Saints not shall we say bent the rules in the '09 NFC title game I have no doubt Favre would have destroyed the Colts in miami and won his second ring. Then he would have the appropriate hardware to go with the records. Even so, he is no less than a legend for the league, so how can you even compare him to Rodgers. The book is far from being written on Rodgers.

Brett Favre after his first 87 starts: 1861-for-3031 (61.4%), 21137 yards, 167 TD, 90 INT, 88.3 QB Rating
Aaron Rodgers after his first 87 starts: 1945-for-2955 (65.8%), 24197 yards, 188 TD, 52 INT, 104.9 QB Rating

Brett Favre's playoff numbers up to that point: 194-for-317 (61.2%), 2430 yards, 18 TD, 7 INT, 94.7 QB Rating
Aaron Rodgers' playoff numbers up to that point: 210-for-318 (66.0%), 2489 yards, 19 TD, 5 INT, 103.1 QB Rating

Both players' teams were 58-29 after those 87 games and both players had a Super Bowl ring under their belts.

Any more questions?

and it would only get worse for Favre, during his last 10 years as a Packer in the PO's he threw more INTs than TD's and had a losing record.

remember the 6 INT game against (previously in GB training camp) Kurt Warner?

Sorry, but to me Brett Favre is one of the most overrated players ever.....that being said he was also one of the most entertaining players ever as all. If you tuned into a Brett Favre game, you got a show, that's for sure.

To me Brett Favre is one step above Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitz is kind of a poor man's Brett Favre. A lot of good but pretty much an equal amount of bad that generally seems to pop up at the wrong times.

No way I'm putting Favre in the Ryan Fitzpatrick class, that's way way off base. But I've always felt he was overrated as well and I agree his records are a result of longevity. Sorry, way too many boneheaded INTs at the worst possible time for him to be ahead of Rodgers, who is the best player in football in my opinion.
