    comparing apples to apples at similar ages. I didnt think I was ever going to see a better QB than Montana than in the 85 Super Bowl vs Marino. and and the Dolphins. Took over the game. Headline: Big Sky Falls On Miami.

    Rogers is just as mobile as Montana was and has a stronger arm - by far. Extends plays, decisive, doesnt make mistakes.

    Has by far the better group of recievers than Montana had - maybe the best group that ever played. Although Jennings injury may prove to be a hinderence.

    Sort of came out of nowhere - was good but not great at Cal.

    Farves backup at GB.

    Barring injury - may go down as the best-ever.

    You obviously didn't see any of Rodger's games when he played at Cal. He had a great college career, and lit up USC when USC was a powerhouse.

    What is this orgasmic love for everything "Joe Montana" with some of you people? Montana was not anywhere near as mobile as some of you think. Maybe you're confusing Montana with Steve Young? Montana didn't have anywhere near the arm strength of Rodgers or Favre or Brady or either of the Manning brothers. Montana had the best wide receiver in NFL history to throw to, not to mention several other receiving options (running backs, tight ends, 2nd receiver, etc.).

    Brady and Rodgers are BOTH better than Montana ever was. Period.

    Get your facts straight. You're making a habit out of embarrassing yourself with "faux facts".

    Montana maybe was the closest thing to Rodgers you've seen since Young, Manning, Marino, Brady, and Rothlesburger. I mean come on.

    Montana won a NC and 2 major Bowl games at ND. Not to mention 4 Super Bowls.

    Rogers didnt do squat a t Cal.

    Lets see how he progresses.

    Of the QBs today, Tom Brady is the closest to Joe Montana. Both are overachievers not expected to do well in the NFL. Montana won four Superbowls and Brady won three and had what could have been the winning drive in the fourth. Montana was never the best QB in terms of arm strength, speed or mobility. What Montana had that other QBs lacked was coolness under pressure and a will to win. Brady has those same qualities. Both Montana and Brady have signature victories where they brought their team back in critical games

    Aaron Rogers is more like Steve Young to me. Great QBs that sat behind HOF QBs waiting for a shot. Both had their HOF QBs traded so that they could get a shot. Both led their teams to SuperBowls three years later.

    Rogers has a way to go before he is a Joe Montana. He needs to win more championships and he needs those victories for the ages that Johnny Unitas, Elway and Montana had

    Brady is better than Rodgers, at least thus far.

    Excuse me, but you are deluded. Joe Montana's best year does not hold up to Aaron Rogers year. He is on pace to break every single QB record for a season this year.

    It was a different era back then.

    QBs did not wear dresses, receivers could be chucked until the ball was released and catching a pass across the middle was risking your life

    You can't compare pass statistics from the 80s with today

    Did you miss the part where I said every single season record?
