Which Green Bay Packers Quarterback is tops? Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers?
By Payton Woolsey
Recently its been brought to my attention that many of the (less savvy) football fans believe that Brett Favre is a better NFL Quarterback than Aaron Rodgers.
I initially scoffed at the idea, but I figured I’d take a closer look at the numbers and let them speak for themselves.
Aaron Rodgers has better mechanics than Brett Favre — the back foot throws, the clutch factor, and the Hail Marys.
A-a-Ron has it all.
What does Brett Farve have to brag about? He has that cute Wrangler Jeans sponsorship — and the most interceptions ever.
His cameo in Something About Mary is legit, so I’ll give him props for that achievement.
Also, Farve possessed something Rodgers has never had. A Running Back. Ahman Green was a stone-cold killer with talent from head to toe.
Rodgers did have the help of Eddie Lacy, but he became more of a hindrance within the offense — with only a flash-in-the-pan success.

Favre also had an excellent offensive line, mind you — unlike Rodgers.
Jeans sales aside, this is no contest — Aaron Rodgers in a landslide.
Let’s not forget, Favre did this little thing called being an absolute prick to Rodgers when he was second-string — not teaching him a single thing.
I think we all know why Favre was hesitant to take on Rodgers as an apprentice — training him in the ways of the Force.
Favre undoubtedly knew that he would lose his job to Rodgers, and inevitably, that’s what happened.
Let’s not forget that he finished his career as a Viking — Blasphemy, shame, abysmal — and with the lowly New York Jets.
