Out of all the comparisons made between Rodgers and X player... this might fit the best with his candor and awareness on the move.

Young, IMO, was a cut above most in terms of his awareness and accuracy as a QB, something Rodgers has most definitely defined as a core strength in his game.

Quote:
Rodgers' QB style inspired by Steve Young

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers grew up watching Steve Young scramble, stay alive in the pocket and connect on throws downfield several seconds after most NFL quarterbacks would have thrown the ball away. That is how Rodgers believes the position is best played, and it's worked well enough for him to result in a Super Bowl championship and a Most Valuable Player award before the age of 29.

Rodgers is elite when it comes to performing under pressure from an opposing defense. Part of that is due to his ability to evade would-be-tacklers behind the line of scrimmage, along with his accurate throws on the run to receivers working to get open. But it's all just part of the philosophy that Rodgers has been working to perfect for many years.

"It's just the way I play; I like to extend plays when the opportunity is there," Rodgers told FOXSportsWisconsin.com this week. "I've always been a pass-first guy outside the pocket. I think those guys are the most dangerous when you keep the play alive and you're able to be in a position to throw the football outside the pocket.

I'm glad he used Young and not Favre. As much as I like Favre, Aaron is a better QB because he doesn't make mistakes or force plays.

He does actually, they just don't usually end in interceptions.

He does force them, just not the same way as Favre did. But during most of the time Favre was a Packer, if he didn't force the ball like he did. the team would never have gotten where it did.

I don't think Favre had near the receiving corps that Rodgers has had, but he did have a better line and running game. Favre usually had to force things out of necessity because receivers weren't getting open. But, I think Favre also suffered from tunnel vision at times - where Rodgers seems to be a better distributer of the football.

The one thing Rodgers does seem to do alot is look for the long pass over the shorter pass and that ends up in more sacks.

that, along with a lot of incompletions when he had a short pass wide open (usually for a first down). but we have no need to rehash this

There are five quarterbacks that have 30+ touchdowns. Rodgers, at 0.75 is the only one that has a TD/sack ratio less than 1.2. He works hard for the money.

I've made this comparison before.

Quote:
Rodgers reminds me of a right-handed Steve Young sometimes, but he also has a ton of Montana traits, which hopefully will translate into a similar career.


http://www.packershome.com/yaf_postst12516p3_How-do-Green-Bay-Packers-last-two-Super-Bowl-teams-match-up.aspx?=

I think it's the efficiency. Young was an efficient passer. He'd seldom turn the ball over. He also chose when to run. That's what Rodgers does better than most so-called scramblers. He knows when to run and his awareness is off the charts. He always knows where the first down marker is and he normally gets there. Those two traits (efficiency as a passer & scrambling) are very Young like.
