Aaron Rodgers, Not Tom Brady, Selected As Better Quarterback In Poll

by NESN Staff

There’s no question that Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. But who is better?

Well, a recent poll by Public Policy Polling asked 1,138 Americans that very question, and New England Patriots fans probably won’t like the results.

A slim majority of respondents (34 percent) said Rodgers was the better quarterback, while 32 percent picked Brady and 34 percent were not sure. The poll was conducted from Oct 1 to Oct. 4.

The reality is you can’t go wrong with either quarterback. Rodgers has completed 72.4 percent of his passes and has a passer rating of 125.9 through four games for the Green Bay Packers this season. Meanwhile, Brady isn’t too far behind with a 72.2 completion percentage and a 119.6 passer rating in three contests. Neither quarterback has thrown an interception and both are undefeated through Week 4.

But debates are fun. And this remains a close one.
