Rodgers’ inclusion on this list may confuse some people but he’s been one of the biggest scapegoats we’ve seen. Many fans think that he chokes in clutch situations and blame the Packers’ playoff malaise on him. However, this overlooks that he has statistically outperformed Tom Brady in the postseason.
In the end, Brady has the rings but Rodgers has the numbers. Furthermore, Mike McCarthy’s conservative playcalling shackled Rodgers for the bulk of his career. They didn’t allow him to express himself and take the game by the horns. There were also special team collapses over the years and poor defenses (via The New York Post).
