Ah, numbers. You can usually find numbers to support whatever argument you want to make.
So here’s NFL.com talking head Bucky Brooks finding some that say Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in history.
In case you can’t quite read that, he’s pointing out that Rodgers has the highest QB rating in history and is the only QB in league history with four times as many touchdowns as interceptions.
And those things are superb. And look, we really like Aaron Rodgers. We’re happy he plays for our team.
But these numbers really only make him one thing.
The greatest regular-season quarterback in NFL history (arguably).
The only stat we give a shit about is number of championships and at this moment, Rodgers only has one.
So it remains that the greatest quarterback I’ve ever seen — and I’m sure plenty of you will disagree — is Joe Montana. And of this current era, it’s Tom Brady.
