Been many years since he won a championship. Ever since then he hasnt come close to another one.

I cant recall any athlete being so anointed by the media come up so dissapointing short so often
Yeah, almost as big a disappointment as Brees', at least Rodgers has his 3 MVP honors to fall back on!!!

Dude is not very likable. Also, it’s not his fault that the media always kiss his butt. However how is he always had a better team than Brees? Brees always had a better coach. The Saints was the much better team in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2018, and 2019. It is debatable that Brees had a better team in 2020 even though Toddler had the #1 seed.


Hands down one of the most physically talented QBs to ever play the game. But his intangibles take him down a couple notches based on what former teammates have said about him. But no, he's always had better teams than Drew had and done just as much.

Rodgers once got MVP over Brees in a season in which:

Brees had just as many wins as Rodgers

Brees led the league in completions, completion %, TDS, and an NFL record for yards in a season.

AND….Rodgers didn’t even have the most passing TDs in a single game by a Packer that year.
Yeah, this is probably where I really started to hate Rodgers. Brees was better by just about every statistical measure, yet Rodgers was the one who won MVP.

I’d take him tomorrow. He’s had a HOF career and been through how many coaches in GB? Put him with SP next year and we win the Super Bowl. Especially if home field advantage is in the dome in winter
I'd welcome it, but I don't think he'd play in NOLA. I could be wrong tho.

Yeah, the voters (media) are stupid.

His and Brees careers are very similar.
Except one is considered the most gifted QB ever and one is considered the least gifted great QB ever.

Brees overcame all of his shortcomings. Rodgers is widely considered to have no shortcomings.

Given all of what I just said, their careers CANT be similar.

You talking about 2011 when Rodgers had 45 TDs & 6 INTs and GB were 15-1 vs. Brees' 46 TDs & 14 INTs and the Saints were 13-3? Rodgers stats are better which is why his passer rating was higher that season.

Pick 24 vs pick 32. Brees wasn’t considered the least gifted and A.a. Ron wasn’t considered the most gifted. And considered by whom, the sport media?
Speaking about least gifted. There was a slow, flabby dude that was picked in the 6th round.

He’s not even the best ARod.

It's funny because its true.

Honestly though, I don't like his attitude a lot of the time but to say he hasn't had a great career is just flat out wrong. I admire him for taking his stance this season regarding the protocols and all that, I know some people hate him for it but he made his choice and stood his ground.

The difference so many keep overlooking is that Brees was never projected to win multiple Superbowls. Brees is considered an overachiever. He was never expected to be a future league superstar or HOFer by any stretch.

Rodgers was supposed to have been the number 1 pick. Rodgers has always been celebrated(similar to Mahomes) as transcendent. While I don’t by any stretch believe his career is a failure, if he doesn’t get another SB apparence then he underachieved based on initial expectations for his trajectory.

During the early 10s, particularly 2011, Brees and the Saints were picked to win their second championship. By the time it hit 2015 even in the middle of three consecutive 7-9 seasons, Brees was considered a HOF lock.

The Packers had the advantage of playing in a weak NFC North so it was seen as an easier path to the playoffs and the Super Bowl. The only competition was a brief run with the Vikings and a one off year when the Bears run the North.

Even though the Saints have dominated the South during Bree’s’ run, there was always another team threatening the run. The Falcons in the early 10s and ‘16 and Ron Rivera and the Panthers from ‘13-‘15. It wasn’t until 2017-2020 that the Saints won consecutive division titles. The path to the playoffs and Super Bowl was easier for Green Bay.
