Yeah, I've made the exact same comparison many times. I always thought Manning was just wound too tight in big games, and I think that's Aaron's problem too. Like Manning, he's obsessed with being perfect on every single play. Sometimes you just need to relax and chuck the damned ball, but Rodgers always looks to me as though he's got this internal calculator running a constant real-time track of his QB rating.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the only postseason in which Rodgers was worth a damn - much less excelled - was the one year he wasn't even expected to make the playoffs. Every other postseason, he looks like a bomb getting ready go off on every play. His body language is tense and tight, his face is rigid and contorted, and he looks like he's about to jump out of his skin half the time. The one thing I wish he would have learned from Favre is how to have fun out there. Because as soon as you start to forget that it's really only a game, you start to slip out of your zone.

I think that's a real problem with Rodgers, and if he doesn't learn how to deal with that, I think he'll finish out as Manning II. A whole coffee table full of passing records, but only one ring.
