If we want to compare the two let's do it right.

Compare Brett's first two starts in the N.F.L to Chico's first two starts in the N.F.L.

Everything else is folly.

The whole world knows what Brett has done, but no one knows what Chico will do in the future. Right now... The only comparison as far as "Stats" is Chico and Brett, head to head, in their first two starts,

Oh.... I Reckon Chico is doing just fine.

I don't know. Even comparing their first two games is not particularly useful as the debate is generally due to the trade of Brett Favre for starting Rodgers, and hence the "what can you do for me now?" attitude.

And even if this wasn't an issue, the league is far different now than 1992, as well as the coaching and the other players. In my opinion a fairer comparison would be the relative performance of Rodgers and Favre vs the league average, either now or first 2 starts.

Even thats not fair. Favre was thrown into the fire, while Rodgers has had 3 years to learn the offense.
But i don't care either way........I love Favre and Rodgers. Favre was fun to watch, and helped to take us back to being PROUD of the Packers. So far, Rodgers has been great, and it looks like we might just get back to the top of the hill again.
I'm THRILLED about the Packers possibilities this year and beyond!

I would actually prefer NOT to compare the two at all. No need.
Loved Brett for what he once was to GREN BAY. Love the idea that he could bring them a 2nd round pick.
Love Aaron for what he now does for GB.
Nothing else really matters.
No use debating if Brett would have done a better job than Aaron in GB in 2008. It ain't going to happpen so it just doesn't matter.

I agree WPR.
Rodgers is "our guy" now, so you can compare all you want, it doesn't matter. But that won't stop people or the media from doing it.
Maybe if Favre had still been here we would be 0-2 right now. It's ALL just "what if's" anyway, as there's no way to PROVE any of it.
I myself want to keep the memories packed away, and concentrate on what IS, not what was or what it might have been.

You don't have to be a Favre fan or a Rodgers fan to the exclusion of the other.

You can like them both.

Anyone complementing one is not insulting the other. Don't take anyone to task for complementing a performance.

Look how many teams can't find one adequate QB!!


Realize also that as Rodgers continues to play he is gaining experience and learning from his mistakes. He'll look better when the best 5 O-linemen are playing.

The times were good with Brett. It is okay to say you enjoyed him as a player.

A win against the Cowboys will calm a lot of peoples confused feelings.

I know, and agree Cali.
But some don't seem capable of that.

Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
