Default Phil Simms on Dan Patrick Show

So I was listening to Phil Simms on Dan Patrick's radio show, and Dan asked him, "If you could take Rodgers or Roethlisberger, who do you choose?" Simms choose Rodgers, which is fine, I personally think Rodgers is a great QB, but his reasoning was...

"Aaron has more talent around him on offense"

Really? Am I being a total homer here in thinking our weapons on offense are just good as the Packers, if not better?

Steelers young WRs are still a year away from being among the best in the league and IMO Rodgers has an OL

Most people love 300 yard 3 TD Qb's.

Green Bay has had the best receiving corps for some time now. They're big, physical and can get open.

Maybe yes, maybe no.....but before i even opened up this thread, i knew that either Simms dogged us, picked us to lose, or chose another player over ours. I knew it.

So Phil Simms didn't even answer the question? He said choose QBs, not teams or offenses.

Everybody has been on Rodgers' balls this season, and while i'm sick of hearing about him, he is a great player.

Simms is just a fool.

First of Phil Simms is a jackass. That being said, based on the surrounding offense there's at least a somewhat decent argument to be made. Jennings and Driver are good recievers. We have Ward which is a sure catch and great speed with Wallace, I think we are better at TE and RB though. The Packers do seem to have a better O line. So I think the offense's are close. So to me that would leave it to Rodgers v. Ben, which is a no brainer. Rodgers is good, but he's got a way to go and a few super bowls before he compares in the playoffs to Ben.

exactly! if the question is about which quarterback is better, you'd think he'd back up his answer with facts about the quarterbacks and not the talent they have around them.
