Rodgers is a serious talent
so is Brady
so is Manning
with that being said
I would choose Ben as a my QB in a must win Game over all of those guys

Good move Ben just plays this media game under the radar deal
he has always been good about that
Let the media talk Rodgers and the Pack up

We just need #7 to get us #7

They talked about us the same way. No matter what Brees did in his career it was never good enough to be better than Manning, no one was could beat Manning. With that I will leave you with a video done by on of our fans, and say "just because there the strong dosnt mean they can't get there @sses kicked", and no we dont think they are the better team. Best of luck to you and yours.

IMHO, Ben and Rodgers play so much alike. They both have similiar adversity to put up with very, very mediocre offensive lines and stand under an enormous amounts of pressure from the defense to step up and perform knowing you're going to get banged around.

With that said, I like our chances when it comes to who will perform better under duress. Rodgers is more athletic than Ben and weighs 25 pounds lighter, but Ben has nifty footwork as well and we've all seen him stiff arm defensive ends to the ground, stick with it and deliver downfield.

I just think Rodgers will go down easier than Ben & and I like that overall feeling of Ben versus their 3-4 over Rodgers facing ours.

That's the most intelligent post I've seen on this forum so far.

Our QBs are a lot a like. Both can scramble well. Both have strong arms and are accurate. Both play behind O Lines that need improvement.

But Ben is stronger and has a bigger body. He's harder to tackle.

Rodgers is surgical in his accuracy. With out a running game we've come to depend on his arm. Add some running to our game and Rodgers is unstoppable.

Agreed 100%. I love A.R. I think he's a major stud with untouchable potential and WILL be in more Super Bowls than this one.

Rodgers and Ben play a very similiar style but Green Bay's offense simply is more pass-heavy with 0 running game (unfortunately for Rodgers.) Ben got a balanced attack, one that can give G.B fits if they can move the chains and sustain drives. I still think GB should pound the rock on occasion or else James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley will sharpen their hooves on a fast track.

Pittsburgh has turned into a pass first, run second team. Ben certainly is tougher in build while Rodgers can get out of the pocket much more quicker and faster but will fall to the ground easier if he gets knocked around early and often. IMHO, this is the perfect matchup to break down, top to bottom. I seriously can't put a finger on who has the edge. Right now it has to be Pitt for the lone fact that most of these players been here before, while more than 90% of G.B's roster has not.
