This is your opportunity to play GM for the Green Bay Packers.
One game, for all the marbles.
Who are you taking as your QB? Brett Favre in his prime (1995-97)? Or Aaron Rodgers, currently in his prime?
This is the question which was asked on the Miller Lite Football Show this past Sunday, and garnered some interesting responses. So we wanted to open the question up to everyone.
Let’s remind everyone of the contestants and their stats.
Brett Favre from 1995-97: 112 TDs (avg 37/yr); 42 int (avg 14/yr); 12,179 passing yards (avg 4,060/yr); passer rating of 92.6 or better each of these three seasons. Won 3 consecutive MVPs during this time. The Packers went to the NFC Championship Game in 1995, won Super Bowl XXXI in 1996, lost Super Bowl XXXII in 1997.
We will use 2010-12 as the time frame for Aaron Rodgers, as he is still in his prime, and was injured much of the 2013 season: 112 TDs (avg 37/yr); 25 int (avg 8/yr); 12,860 passing yards (avg 4,287/yr); passer rating of at least 101.2 each of these seasons, including an NFL record 122.5 in 2011. Won the MVP in 2011. Won Super Bowl XLV in 2010, lost in the Divisional Round of the playoffs in 2011, lost in the Divisional Round of the playoffs in 2012.
Impressive resumes for both. Now we want to hear from you.
Who are you taking for one game, everything on the line, to lead your team to victory?
You make the call. Please leave your comments as to why you made your selection.
