Brett Favre says, at most, there are only 4 NFL QBs who have ever played better than Aaron Rodgers … telling TMZ Sports the Packers star is a top-5 signal-caller of all time.
The Green Bay legend made the claim just days after Rodgers tied his Packers record for most passing TDs … saying he thinks Aaron has just been that prolific in his 17-year career.
“You have to put Tom Brady and Joe Montana right at the top,” Favre says. “And I think Aaron Rodgers falls in the top five.”
Favre didn’t elaborate on who the other two quarterbacks on the list would be … but it’s obviously high praise for Rodgers nonetheless.
A top-five ranking would mean Rodgers could be considered to be better than Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Dan Marino, John Elway, Troy Aikman, and a bevy of other Hall of Famers.
“I think Aaron should be in the top five,” Favre said. “If he quit today, he’s a top five guy.”
Rodgers’ resume is certainly deserving of the honor, he has a Super Bowl ring, 3 MVP trophies and he’s been selected to 10 Pro Bowls.
As for if he can add one more MVP award to the resume this season … Favre says it’s certainly possible, though he tells us an Indianapolis Colts star could ultimately take the honor from him.
