Maybe DeflateGate was all part of Goodel's master plan to unleash Angry Tom Brady on the world to set up a Super Bowl showdown for the ages against "America's team"?

Lmao. Brady is my favorite NFL player. I was just pointing out how efficient Rodgers has been over his career. I read a stat the other day that said Rodgers could throw something like 70 straight INTs and still have a better TD/INT ratio than Brady. Brady is still the GOAT but that doesn't mean he's the best at every thing.

Let' not act like Chicago, Minnesota or Detroit have been all that good during Rodgers career either.  Divisional games are just half the 16 game schedule my man.  The Pats have played tougher schedules due to their success during Bradys reign.  Rodgers has also had a fleet of elite receivers compared to Brady's ever changing patchwork of receivers.  Rodger is great and probably a Hall of Famer but he's not Brady not matter what facts you cherry pick.

I.....I didnt? Also divisional games are not half of the season. 2+2+2=6. 6/16 =/= 1/2. Also read what I said about Brady my man. I never claimed that Rodgers is Brady or is a better QB.

Also, what fleet of elite receivers has Rodgers had in his career? The best he's had in his career are Driver, Jennings, and Nelson. Surely those are comparable to Brady's Moss, Welker, Edelman, and Gronkowski.

...is that the NFL has been subtly tweaking the rules for over two decades in favor of the passing game.  In theory, passing becomes "easier" each year.  Brady played seven full seasons before Rodgers became a starter.

So while they're kinda contemporaries, they also kinda aren't.

AR: 4580 career attempts; 381 att/yr; 572 max attempts in a yr; 289/72 TD/INT=4.0

TB: 8164 career attempts; 480 att/yr; 637 max attempts in a yr; 450/152 TD/INT=2.9

Rogers's advantage in TD/INT ratio is clear, although Brady has been much more efficient in his last ten years than his first seven years.

The maximum number of attempts in any given year for Rogers is 572, a number that Brady has exceeded seven times. Will Rogers's ratio be the same as today's after he throws 3500 more passes?

Regardless, Rogers has been without equal in NFL history in TD/INT ratio; I've looked up the most notable QBs dating back to the '50s—Bobby Layne, Otto Graham, Y.A. Tittle, Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana—and none of them even approach Brady, let alone Rogers.

Historically I'd say it's hard to compare QB's of the last 10-15 years to QB's that played before then.  The rules on defensive pass intereference are so tilted to favor the offense now it's not even funny.  Back when Layne, Graham, Title, Starr, Unitas (and to some extent Montana) were playing the pass intereference rules were completely different.  Before 1978 there was almost no such thing as pass interference.

Just finished reading "Belicheck and Brady". It is a good read and has alot of good Michigan tidbits. Though its focus is the Patriots there is stories about Ty Law, Brady, Bo, and mentions of other great wolverines. But the most interesting part is the in depth breakdown of deflate-gate and how badly it was bungled by the NFL and the courts. There is even a great story about Brady's dad calling into a radio station and destroying the host with facts and calling out inaccuracies said over the airwaves. It is astonishing how little most people knew about deflate-gate that were publicly commenting on it and about Brady.

The "deflategate" fiasco will end up adding 2 seasons to Tom Brady's career.  The 4 game break allowed him to recharge a bit, play with his kids... work out on his own terms and get focused.  Shit like Roger Goodell are what Tom thrives on.  He will play until he is 43 or 44 and shatter every NFL record by the time that he is done, yards, TD passes, rating, SB rings etc.
