For some time now, I have been saying that Aaron Rodgers admittedly epic production this year needs to come with the caveat that he is feasting on the very bottom of the league, and a remarkably easy schedule. The highlight of Rodgers season was a 4 game stretch against four teams in the bottom 10 in the league in opposing QB rating (and one opponent, San Diego, was even worse at the time), including 2 games against the Vikes, the worst in the league - and in that stretch, he threw 14 TDs to 1 INT, and had his 3 highest passer ratings of the season). Drew Brees is arguably having as productive a season as Rodgers - granted against a similarly easy schedule, but having watched both play quite a bit recently, I can definitively say Brees is playing better than any QB in the league right now. Brady is on their heels - if he had less turnovers, I would say he would have a case. And realistically, I think we also have to consider Gronkowski, who is having one of the best seasons any TE has had - and has been very instrumental in getting us to where we are at 11-3. But I'm glad the Packers lost yesterday, b/c as I've been saying for a month or so, their perfect season was a little bit smoke & mirrors - and the notion that Rodgers season was head & shoulders above Brees, or even Brady, didn't hold up when one took a closer look.
