    Anonymous to you, maybe. Minnesota's WRs are hardly crappy, though. Favre may have helped some of them improve, but it certainly wasn't all Favre that led to their success.

    For reference, Shiancoe had 596 yards receiving the year before Favre showed up. He had 566 with Favre.

    Sidney Rice was a high draft pick with all the skills in the world. He came into his own in his 3rd season, as many WRs do.

    Percy Harvin would have been successful anywhere.

    Shaincoes success could be attributed to the scrub QBs to lead the vikings the last few years. Tavarias or the old guy couldnt throw long passes.

    If the packers don't tighten up that o-line, Rodgers is gonna be looking like a 40 year old man by the end of the 2010 season.

    As for 2009, its really tough to compare their performance. Favre sticks out as better because his team did better... but he had arguably the best team behind him. Anything from defense to running game to special teams, the Vikings were among the top in the league. ARod had a horrible o-line, a fairly weak running game along with a solid defense and fared pretty damn well.

    All other comments aside, this is completely wrong in evaluating a player's individual skill. And what do you know, we have a perfect example in Favre vs. Rodgers last year. A good QB on a average team will lose to an average QB on a great team. It's why football is a team sport. If Favre beat Rodgers twice in a row in ping pong, I'd agree that he is better. But this is football.

    If Green Bay had a good D, they'de be scary good. Rodgers is at his peak performing superbly....despite his team.

    Their defense was 2nd in yards allowed last year.....If anything Rodgers needs to be protected.

    I can only imagine how good Rodgers would make our team.

    That would be ridiculous. Especially if Williams ends up being a good NFL receiver. Maybe Brett will want to come back to the Packers and they will trade Rodgers :wink2:

    Aaron Rodgers is one of my favorite QBs, not only because of his playing style and skill, but because of how he handles himself. This guy was most affected by the Favre roller coaster ride a few years ago, but he stayed strong and didn't complain to the press or anything. Seems like a good guy and is definitely a good QB.

    No doubt that Aaron Rodgers is a top notch QB at this point, but its Favre people. Until Rodgers is in the conversation of best of all time, it's Favre for me. The dude is like a Vince Young but 10X better at the QB position, he just wins. He's a legend, his mom has a tat that reads "Brett". NFL Network camps outside his house for months. Who's stalking Aaron?

    We should have traded Young and Gage along with our two 3rd round picks from this year's draft and whatever else it takes to get Rodgers and Jennings. :yes:

    Does Brett Favre have another 10-12 seasons left in him? NOPE. In fact, I don't think he'll be coming back this season. The dude is too freakin' old and his ankle is banged up pretty bad.

    Favre is a legend. He has done more than Aaron Rodgers in his career. He is one of the greatest QBs of all time. No doubt about it. But, as of today, Rodgers is better in every single way. He's younger, he's quicker, he's not selfish, he's not a prima donna, he's in the prime of his career, and there's only one way for Rodgers to go from here... UP. There's only one way for Favre to go from here... DOWN.
