You make some good points in regard to Rodgers, he is very special. Before this season, I thought he and Eli were pretty comparable but after seeing what he did this year, I would say that the only guys I would consider an overall better QB than him would be Tom Brady and maybe Peyton Manning, although I would take Rodgers over Peyton in the post season without thinking twice.Aaron Rodgers carried his team in to the playoffs this past season. However, some of the same reasons you respect Aaron so much is why I respect Eli. I think that our O line is abysmal. Granted, they are not as bad as Aaron's but they are pretty awful, it is impressive that Eli has never missed a start. We also have a bad running attack and I know folks get flustered about this from both sides of the debate so I will be cordial with it, our offensive scheme is not very friendly for him. He has made it work but he is in a system that is not set up for success. Aaron is sacked so much in large part because of his offensive line but Eli has a lower percentage completion because he has to throw so many passes away due to his horrible pass blocking O line. I can get your point about Green Bay's O line playing almost every game the way ours played against San Francisco but I counter, that if we are going to bring up the dropped passes in the playoff game against us by Aaron's receivers then we have to acknowledge how regularly that happens for Eli. NY Giants are regularly near the top or at the top of NFL for dropped passes by receivers.
