Don't try telling that to Rodgers, however. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, the two-time MVP gave a short and blunt answer as to why he thinks Brady is the greatest quarterback ever.
"He's got five championships," Rodgers said, via ESPN's Rob Demovsky. "I think that ends most discussions."
Well in that case, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has two Super Bowl championships compared to Rodgers. Does that man the Packers superstar is inferior to the Giants signal-caller?
Rings aside, both Brady and Rodgers have done more than enough to present themselves as the greatest ever. Brady is a five-time Super Bowl champion, three-time league MVP and will finish among the all-time leaders in passing yards and touchdowns.
For Rodgers, he hasn't had the same type of coaching or supporting cast that Brady has had. Remember, the Packers completely faltered last season after Rodgers went down with a collarbone fracture. If Rodgers was playing in New England, he'd surely have more than one Super Bowl by now.
Many regard Rodgers as the most talented and complete quarterback ever, and there's plenty to back it up. He has the greatest touchdown to interception ratio of all-time and owns the best regular season passer rating. And this is on a team that has lacked great running backs, quality offensive line units and elite wide receivers.
Nonetheless, the Brady and Rodgers debate can be had for another day. Sunday marks just the second time these two will face off, and perhaps the last. Will Rodgers move to 2-0 vs. TB12, or will they go even at 1-1?
