Who is better, Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers?

Who is the better quarterback, Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers?

Itís a question that will be asked for years to come. Both will likely land in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Both won a Super Bowl. Both earned league MVP honors. Both were starters for the Packers.

Rodgers has only played five seasons as an NFL starter, while Favre put 20 years of NFL service under his belt.

It would be easy to argue that the jury is still out on this question and we should wait a decade or so to see a picture of Rodgersí full career.

But as we did last summer, we will keep you updated on how the two quarterbacks compare during a similar number of NFL seasons.

So here are the five-year stats for Favre and Rodgers:
