For many years, fans and pundits alike have argued time and time again about who is the best quarterback of all time in the NFL.

Some say you have to measure it by Super Bowls won. Others say you can only come to a conclusion by how many records that quarterback broke, or came close to breaking, during his playing career.

Well, NFL.com's Bucky Brooks has revealed it is not Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Brett Favre, or even Steve Young, but in fact, it's Aaron Rodgers who is the best quarterback in NFL history. At least by the numbers that are shown. To be in the running, you have to have at least 1,500 attempts.

According to the statistics report he released on his Twitter, the Green Bay Packers quarterback has the highest career passing rating in NFL history with 106.4. His closest competitor to this is Romo, who has a career passing rating of 97.6.

Rodgers is also the only quarterback in the league annals to have more than four times as many touchdowns as interceptions (231/57). The next competitor on that list is Brady, who has a touchdown/interception ratio of 2.79.

While it isn't entirely set in stone that Rodgers is the best quarterback in NFL history, as everyone will have a different opinion and possible favorite, it does shed some light on what kind of career the Packers quarterback has had in the league so far.

He still has a long way to go before he even considers hanging up the cleats as he is only 31-years-old. He still has at least another seven or eight years left in the league, so he could properly solidify himself as the best quarterback ever, or go the opposite way completely.

Either way, no Packers fan would have expected to receive one of the best quarterbacks ever after the loss of Brett Favre from the team back in 2008.
