It's really a shame the Packers and the Saints didn't end up getting a rematch in the playoffs, because otherwise we would have had the privilege to see the top two quarterbacks on this list battle for an NFC Championship or Super Bowl berth.
Rodgers had an unprecedented season as well, throwing for 4,643 yards, 45 touchdowns and just six interceptions on a 68.3 percent completion rate. Even more impressive, however, were his 9.25 yards per attempt and his 122.5 quarterback rating, the highest season average in NFL history.
What Rodgers brings to the table that Brees doesn't is running ability, adding 257 yards rushing and three touchdowns on a 4.3 yard average.
Rodgers, like Brees, benefits from a dominant list of receiving options, but he doesn't have the running game that Brees had, so it was even more impressive that he could have put up such efficient numbers. He also finished the season with a disappointing loss, but his regular season speaks for itself.
It's pretty hard to go wrong with Brees or Rodgers, but if you told me to pick one, I'd have to go with Rodgers.
