Greetings from Titletown: Favre/Rodgers debate is over

Using my QB Efficiency Rating, Aaron Rodgers scored a 52.12 in tonight’s immaculate beatdown of the Atlanta Falcons by the Green Bay Packers.   The NFL average is  11.44.  Favre never once came close to posting such a number in any postseason contest.  I’m willing to bet he never did it in the regular season, either.  The Favre/Rodgers  debate is over my friends, if it wasn’t over a long time ago.

Favre was nothing more than a latter day Bobby Layne.  Reckless and charismatic.  Aaron Rodgers is Roger Staubach redux.  Pinpoint passing, great decision making, and elusive in the pocket. Aaron Rodgers is a far superior quarterback to Favre.

What a win.  To quote the immortal final words of Robert F Kennedy… “Now its on to Chicago (probably), and lets win there“.

NFC Championship Game, baby!!!

    I love Aaron Rodgers. It’s too bad the Niners didn’t see how good he was.

    Rodgers is one of my favorites. Should there be an injury rate measure included in the QB rating though? I would assume that the more a QB runs the more likely he is to be injured. Is this true in reality though? Green Bay almost missed the playoffs entirely due to Rodgers being injured.

    On a side note, I also perceive a tendency (among the talking heads at least) to assume that the better a QB is at running the less important the offensive line, but if running QB’s are getting injured at a greater rate then in fact the opposite may be true.

    Same thing for Vick. His injuries probably cost the Eagles a first round bye.
