We all know Ryan is going in to his third year and Rodgers sat behind Favre. Sorry for assuming you were trying to contribute to a conversation instead of saying the sky is blue.
    Yeah, I was just stating the obvious, and you are arguing against what you called the obvious. My point was that their situations are very different, so to say Ryan will never be as good has no basis because you are judging him so early in his career. But keep putting words into my mouth. It makes you sound real smart.

      Every situation is different. So by that train of thought, we can't compare anyone because their situation is/was different. I'm not putting words in to your mouth, I'm trying to understand what you're trying to say but I now get that it isn't much of anything.

        These two guys you're talking about have been pretty durable as a whole. I expect that they'll both play 12+ games in 10'. Their backups are more experienced this time around, there was an injection in talent when they drafted Bryan Bulaga. Lately rookie OL have done pretty much fine & I don't see a reason why Bulaga wouldn't be able to spell Clifton/Tauscher for a short period of time. Green Bay's O-Line won't be worse, they should be slightly better if anything. I really don't see them being as dreadful or quite as banged up as last season.

          You can compare players, but if you want to continue this hyperbolic rant, then by all means go ahead. You said Rodgers is going into his third starting year and so is Ryan, and therefore since Rodgers has been more productive, he will never be nearly as good. I said that is a false statement. And if you want to argue that point, you don't have a case. If you want to keep putting words into my mouth to make yourself sound smarter, go ahead.

            Green Bay's line will give up less than 35 sacks. After last year, it's a great improvement.

              Ryan will never be as good as Rodgers because he isn't as talented, or as smart.

              Better?

                When then, it's not a have a Rookie first rounder who looked good in TC and preseason as a contingency plan. Aye?

                Also, why is it highly unlikely? Prior to last season either had missed very few games. Oh, it's because they're old? When then by that logic, Winfeild and Favre won't make it though the season either.

                  I used talented. He ignored it.

                    There is not a single aspect of Rodgers' game I'd use "underrated" to describe anymore.

                      And you ignored every point I was making in favor of putting words in my mouth.

                        I'll take Rodgers easily.

                          You've mistaken putting words in your mouth to trying to understand your point, and you didn't have one. You overreacted to my statement of Rodgers being more productive than Ryan therefore leading to being better, and ran with it.

                            Back to my point, and I don't mean to knock either Rodgers or Rivers, but I need them to start to really stand out from their peers in some capacity before they get elevated into the elite realm. Aaron Rodgers TD/int ratio is the one thing that really sticks out to me, but when I think of the argument for best QB, all of these guys definitely have talent, but results speak for themselves.

                            Brady: 4 superbowls, a 16-0 team and another superbowl appearance, led the highest scoring team of all time, broke a ton of records, including the most TDs in one season.

                            Peyton: His stats speak for himself, you can't **** with Peyton statistically, and his team wins 12 a year, every year, with multiple deep playoff runs.

                            Brees: The new guy relatively, the other two have been the ONLY ones in this discussion for the longest, but Brees legitimately needs mentioning. In 4 years he's led the highest rated offense 3 times, ranking 4th in the other, he's thrown for 5000 yards, and he now owns the completion % record, and that's not even getting into the fact that he won a superbowl now, and had another deep playoff run... on the Saints....

                            What has Rodgers or Rivers done at this point to get credit or get the benefit of the doubt? I wanna see something significant that breaks a Manning or Brees record, or a dominant post season run into the superbowl, etc.

                            Until then, they are elite QBs that aren't putting up legendary numbers.

                              This thread is ridiculous. Go get split screen and watch River's on half and Rodger's on half. It's not even close. You could argue Rivers has a better deep ball than Rodgers but he gets beat hands down on every other count. Rodgers has a crisper and faster release, more arm strength on short to medium throws, better pocket presence and mobility, better ability to read defenses, etc etc.

                              And this is only Rodgers third season starting. And last season, for half of it, he was on pace to get sacked a near record amount of times. And while some of it was his fault, the vast majority was just awful protection. AND if you look how quickly Rodgers has improved on the fault that caused some sacks (taking too long to get rid of the ball) it's pretty incredible. For the last half of the season and especially this preseason he's been incredibly fast getting rid of the ball.

                              And what's your argument? Rivers had, arguably, a better offense the last few years with a #1 WR that plays to his strengths, an amazing TE and a very good OLine (comparatively, at least.)


                              When being a fanboi goes too far.

                                LOL WUT?

                                Aaron Rodgers has better pocket presence? That ******* stupidly inaccurate.

                                Rodgers may have been better last year, slightly, but he wasn't better two years ago when Rivers was by far the best QB in the regular season in '08. To say it's "ridiculous" is clueless. I can't help you.
