When you ask an NFL fan who the best quarterback in the league today is, they usually give you one of two answers. Either Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers.

The argument for Brady is that he is unquestionably the most decorated quarterback in the history of the NFL with five Super Bowl rings, eight Super Bowl appearances, three MVP awards, and 13 Pro Bowl selections to his name.

For Rodgers, he has one Super Bowl ring, two MVP awards, and six Pro Bowl selections to his name. He also is the only quarterback to have a career passer rating of over 100.0 in the regular season.

It's tough to separate the starting quarterbacks of the Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots, but that's exactly what Greg Jennings has done.

The former NFL wide receiver stated that Rodgers is a better quarterback than Brady because of his ability to change the game outside the pocket.

He said, via For The Win: “Aaron Rodgers is the better quarterback…. This is the way I look at it – and I will say it’s not an easy decision to be made for most, because you’ve got AFC competitors, NFC competitors, you’ve got AFC coordinators, NFC coordinators, and they’re going to be split.

"But if we all look at it like this – their intangibles physically, and their intangibles in the brain, mentally. Mentally, you can slightly give the advantage to Tom Brady.

"Physically, when I put them under center, if I put Tom Brady under center, is there anything Tom Brady can do for me that Aaron Rodgers can’t? Absolutely not.

"If I put Aaron Rodgers under center, are there things, intangibles that he possesses and skillsets that he possesses that Tom Brady cannot match? Of course there are.”

Brady may be the more accomplished quarterback in terms of achievements, but there is definitely a strong case to suggest Rodgers is the better quarterback because of how dynamic he can be on the field, especially under pressure.

The debate goes on.

Who do you think is the better quarterback? Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers? Have your say and leave a comment below...
