Comparisons of 07 Brady and 11 Rodgers

These two, for obvious reasons, especially if the Packers are able to get through this difficult second half undefeated, are going to be compared for all histroy. Who was better, who did this, who did that...ect.

.

In this post, I'm looking at my version of a total quarterback rating. A QB could have a perfect rating, and fumble the ball 6 times. So that's the first thing I'm changing. In my comparison, I'm considering fumbles as interceptions under this rating. Also, we are trying to compare different styles of QB play and different teams overall. Eventhough I love my Packers, one thing that stuck with me while watching Brady in 07 was the fact that he had about 6 to 10 seconds to pick and choose which reciever her wanted to throw the ball to. In comparison, Rodgers is facing a lot more pressure than Brady. Brady also ran the ball a total of 37 times in 07, something that Rodgers has already surpassed. In my opinion, these two factors should be considered as well. So I decided to take the rushes, and treat them as completed passes, and add the rushing yards, while subtracting the negative sack yardage.

This is the result that I got. This is through 9 games.

What does this tell us? Well through 9 games, Rodgers is running the ball more than he is getting sacked, where as the upright Brady was in negative yards for his run/sack total. Also, despite getting hit sacked half as much as Rodgers, he's fumbled the ball more times and turned the ball over much more. Brady still has +28Td's, compared to Rodgers +27. Brady's 4 worst games of the year, however, was yet to come. Weeks 11, 12, 14, and 15 saw Brady's rating barely reach 90 with a low of 52. We can only hope Rodgers's 4 worst games are behind him this year.

.

If Rodgers is able to keep this pace up, he will have 350-500 more total yards than Brady, and eventhough Rodgers may not reach Brady's TD totals, he'll have him beat in turnovers.
