    Rodgers is the flavor of the month. He's awesome but let's see him stick around for awhile before crowning him the GOAT.

    I just find it funny they projected his stats 48 Td and 5300 yards but Brady will have 900 more yards and 4 TD's more more impressive year lol

    Rodgers is a fantastic QB, but he is nowhere near as accomplished as Brady. He could be when it's all said and done, and he might very well be in the same level as Brady-Manning right now, but putting him ahead of those too is very premature.

    And I'm probably the biggest Rodgers fan outside of Green-Bay.

    So, Brady in one week is the best ever, then because he throws 4 picks with 3 of them not beeing completely his fault now Rodgers is the man?

    What's wrong with noticing that Rogers is putting up the mega stats this season? Good for him and his fine supporting cast. Also, he's not a 90 day wonder. For those that missed it he earned a Lombardi last Feb. Earned it, not backed into it with a 22 QBR.

    Rodgers is a great QB, but to say he has separated himself from Brady and Manning is absurd. At best, he is in conversation with them. He needs to play a few more years, win a bit more, maybe hit some record books before I am willing to consider it.

    In order to 'separate' yourself from Brady (In my eyes) you'd have to do one of the following:

    1) Sustain greatness for 10+ years

    AND any one of

    1) Win 3 SBs in a row
    2) Win 4-5 SBs overall

    Is Rodgers going to be the new Manning on this board due to Peyton's absense this year? The fact is Rodgers is the Superbowl MVP from last year and is playing out of his mind this year. ESPN is a what have you done for me lately taskmaster. We know Brady is going to dominate the regular season, and either he Brees, Rodgers, or some combination of 2 of the 3 of them will win MVP this year depending on who breaks what records and whose team has a better record. Anyways, point being, Rodgers plays in the NFC and is not in direct competition with us at the time being. Theres no reason for us to hate him just because he is currently on the same level as Brady (obviously not in terms of career resume)

    Looks like Rodgers will have another Lombardi this January. He's on pace to be the best of all time...

    and guess which team has the 2nd worst passing defense in the nfl? thats right...the packers..

    right now, they are basically a mirror of the patriots...only difference is no one is harping on their pass defense because they are 4-0

    You need to re-READ what xmarked400X wrote. And then think carefully before responding.

    I of course give advice that I do not follow.

    Who cares who some random person thinks is marginally better between Brady or Rodgers?

    Rodgers is a great QB who dealt with some adversity early on and handled it a lot better than most of the egomaniac manchildrein the NFL would. Then he finally got his chance after scumbag Favre left and he made good on it.

    Good for him. If you don't like Aaron Rodgers or find some joy in his success you're probably a bitter husk of a human.

    Rodgers isn't on Manning or Brady's level yet, but he already surpassed Brett Favre IMO. Maybe not on career accomplishment, but on playing level for sure. He is a better game manager, he is just as good outside the pocket and he reads the play way better than Favre ever did.

    Favre have always been an overrated gunslinger IMO and even though he cumulated alot of impressive stats, I never liked him that much. Rodgers on the other hand is my second favorite QB in the league, this guy deserves to wear #12 :)

    On the Rogers foolishness, yes, he's very good but Brady and Manning have been stalking the NFL for better than a decade now, so Rogers has a long way to go before he even equals the achievements of those two gentlemen. This is football hyperbole at its very worst, the anointing of the next new guy without any real history behind it. In addition, he is leaving out the likes of Drew Brees and arguably Phillip Rivers, who need to be included in the ranks of the elite.

    He is playing fantastic football. He might end up being better than Brady and Manning. Currently I'll say he is playing better than Brady but saying he is better than Brady is premature. Let's see what he does this year.

    He has had three very good seasons.

    I lost out on Brady on my fantasy team, but I ended up with Rogers. I want him to continue to play well. :D

    I don't give a damn what this writer says. I want this team to win games. PERIOD. I don't care if Brady completes 10 passes for a 200 yards. All I want to see is another Patriot victory...and an improved defensive performance wouldn't hurt either. :p

    Um, brady has more yards and more TDs this year so far, so does that make him "projected" to be the greats, GREAST ever?

    I'm glad fools keep trying to hold brady down and never give him credit. Not in college, not in the nfl. First it was manning that was better, now its Rodgers. Brady is just going to keep playing with a chip on his shoulder, and keep being better than everyone.

    I dont get whats so hard for people to admit. TOM BRADY IS THE BEST QB IN THE NFL. "Experts" and some fans need to stop being so bitter that a 6th round pick is better than everyone, and no one could have ever guessed. it.

    I remember Bledsoe having 8 TDs after two games in 1997 (to 8 different receivers, no less). I remember the stupid articles..."he's on pace for 64 TDs!" Oy.

    The whole overrate Aaron Rodgers and make him the best player in the league right now because Manning's career, IMO is done and he won the previous superbowl is the reason I hate and can't stand the bug-eyed Aaron Rodgers.
    Brady is out there playing his tail off and because of one game, due to his eagerness to break a record, he's second to Aaron Rodgers?!

    Jeez, the way they are all over Tony Romo, I can only imagine what they'll be calling him if he manages to win a SB, I guess Brady will be ranked third or fourth after Brees. I can't stand these sports writers. This hating is ridiculous. You can't even imagine Aaron Rodgers ever having an undefeated season, throwing 50 Tds and carrying a defenseless team with rookie TEs and a Mossless offense to 14-2 record last year on what I believe was one of the toughest schedules pf that season. I mean what kind of joke is this?

    Even now Brady is still having a better year than Rodgers, regardless of the Bills game and what the stats are saying.

    All the teams Brady have played so far has better than average defenses. Sure Brady scored 30+ on em' but he's got the talent to make good Ds look bad.

    Rodgers played New Orleans(The Defense is as about as bad as NE), Panthers(He didn't play as well as his stats portray, he played like ish until half way through the 3rd quarter), Chicago (questionable defense - last 3 offenses have scored a lot on them) Denver(the whole team sucks). He's putting numbers up on terrible teams, something Brady has done very well too, but doesn't get enough credit for.

    However, the media is treating Rodgers like the greatest of all time and forgetting about Tom Brady. Even with the numbers Brady put up last year, he was still being slighted by Vick, Manning and Brees and none of them were even on or near his level. ESPN to slight Brady even further developed some BS QBR so that they could find more ways to rank Rodgers and others over Brady.

    I hate Rodgers, Romo, Manning, the other Manning and Sanchez. I'm through venting for now. I'll probably be back here.

    Please....
    At this juncture, Jim Kelly could enter the picture. That son-of-a-censored accomplished more than Manning by virtue of FOUR straight visits to the promised land, and x-3 as many such visits as Brady.
    So, let's also place Rodgers against the film of as many SB greats as there ever were... against Brady, Montana, Aikman, Bradshaw, Elway, etc. Not to mention the several one-timers and the many, many got-there-but-didn't-win-that-one-gamers. How does he wash? Just another very good QB, having another very good first 1/4 season.
    Give it a rest, gentlemen, and let the season play out.

    Re: Will Ochocinco have more receptions that Brady throws interceptions?

    I know, I know, some people may have been saying this every week, but I have a gut feeling that this is the week we finally see the Ochocinco we were hoping for. Revis is almost definitely shadowing Welker... that leaves Cromartie to take on either Branch, who has been our #2 WR thus far, or Ochocinco, who has done very little statistically (but still usually gets double coverage). He's too good to stay dormant for long, and in this home game he could be a difference maker. I'm sure I sound crazy here but come Sunday I'll be crazy like a fox! :D (hopefully)

    Re: Will Ochocinco have more receptions that Brady throws interceptions?

    Chad had a couple of nice catches in the raider game. Not as good as Welker (who could be?) but at least he seems to be contributing. I think Chad will slowly contribute more every game. As it is now, teams may not expect him to get to many opportunities and he could make some nice yardage gains.

    Re: Will Ochocinco have more receptions that Brady throws interceptions?

    It seemed like the focus on the Raiders game was chewing up clock and getting the hell out of Oakland as healthy as possible for the Jets game, while also establishing an identity in the run game. Chad got four targets, the most he's had in any game this season, and I expect that number to rise this week.

    Revis was actually covering Branch in the playoff game, with Welker getting double-teamed. If the Pats go 3 wide, it could be Ocho time.
