The Simms No. 1 quarterback: Aaron Rodgers

Getty Images

The journey from No. 40 to No. 1 has ended, and the guy sitting at the top of the Chris Simms quarterback countdown is the guy who has been in that spot, from Simms’ perspective, for a long time.

It’s Aaron Rodgers.

That’s higher than I’d put him, but it ain’t my list. It could be higher than you’d put him, but it ain’t your list, either. It’s Simms’ list, and that’s where he has Rodgers.

We debated and discussed the decision, and you can witness the debate and discussion, and you can join in the debate and discussion below.

87 responses to “The Simms No. 1 quarterback: Aaron Rodgers

  1. Aaron Rodgers may be the most overvalued, over-hyped QB that I can ever remember. He is very talented and has a very strong arm but there is much much more to what makes a QB the best of the best.

  2. It’s amazing on how good he’s been for so long that the Pack have only one 1 Super Bowl victory. Actually, they have been floundering for years now. I don’t see that changing any time soon.

  3. He’s wrong. Like I’ve said before, I’d be the first to agree he throws a better deep ball than Brady, and throws better on the run too, but there’s more to being a great QB, like reading the D, leadership, and getting done under pressure, and no one does that better than Brady.

    And in years when Brady had few weapons or a non-existent defense or badly banged up team he was still carrying them not just to the Div title but often the CG. In years when Aaron’s had that he’s not been able to get above 500. Then there’s Q4 comebacks – Brady’s had 35, but Aaron’s only had 14 and ZERO versus teams who were above 500 going into that game.

  4. This is no secret in Green Bay. Too bad Aaron is on the decline. And the team around him hasn’t matched his abilities.

    It’s also no secret that we’ve wasted great QBs in Green Bay.

  5. How many SBs would Brady have won at Green Bay? Probably about the same as Rodgers. One must separate QB talent and SB wins. The latter is a team accomplishment.

  6. Jan 15, 2012. Divisional Playoffs. 10-7 Giants @ 15-1 Packers. Rodgers 78.5 rating. Out of playoffs.
    Dec 14, 2014. 10-3 Packers @ 7-6 Bills. Rodgers 34.3 rating. Missed out on homefield.
    Jan 16, 2016. Divisional Playoffs. 11-6 Packers @ 13-3 Cardinals. Rodgers 77.9 rating. Out of playoffs.

    Rodgers has come up small in some big moments over the years. He’s also missed the playoffs for the last two years, which definitely is injury related, but availability is part of being great.

    At his best he is very fun to watch, but he’s not the best QB in the league at winning games, which is the point of the sport.

    I believe Andrew Luck should be #1.

    ————-

    Andrew Luck’s performance @ KC in the playoffs should preclude him from even being top 10. That was horrible.

  8. Hes top 2. But yet he should not be able to call audibles….making those PFT peanut gallery or echo chamber quite impotent.

  9. Nothing is more hilarious than people getting bent out of shape over somebody’s subjective opinion.
    Lists are the best.
    Can’t wait until PFT Power Ranking season.

  10. How many SBs would Brady have won at Green Bay? Probably about the same as Rodgers. One must separate QB talent and SB wins. The latter is a team accomplishment.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________

    2017 NFCC game – Packers down 37-15 heading into the 4th quarter. Rodgers get’s benched and they lose 44-21

    Two weeks later – Pats down 28-9 heading into 4th quarter. Brady lead’s epic comeback and Pats win the SB against same team.

    Safe to say Brady would have had more success in GB.

  11. Joe Namath said the best QB is one who rises to the challenge and makes others around him better. I agree. I have not seen that out of Aaron. He’s great, no question, and in the top 5 for sure, but not #1.

  12. Thank god Vegas gave Aaron Rodgers only the 2nd best odds to win the MVP award this season. Top odds given to Aaron for MVP this season could have caused some here to have a nervous breakdown. Mahomes has the best odds followed by Aaron and Luck.

    Brady has the 6th best odds to win MVP. Pats fans just got triggered.😏

  13. Of course Rodgers is number one. He treats all of his receivers and coaches with respect. He runs the plays as called, and never takes extra hits because checkdowns are unsexy. Really the debate should be why anyone else even made the top ten. My top ten is all Rodgers.

  14. Can we stop kneeling to Aaron Rodger??? I’ve never seen a more overrated player in my life. Whoa, he can run around and make throws from broken down plays!!! 90% of the time he’s the reason the play has broken down!

    “Simms has had an axe to grind with Brady (and apparently Brees) for years.”

    =============

    I believe it. In his days at Bleacher Report with his video/podcasts in a looser format that allows profanity, you could tell in his tone he simply didn’t like Brady. In a more professional setting at NBC, he backpedals a lot just to give the illusion that he’s objective. His QB evaluation is flawed, not just towards Brady.

  16. Wisconsin’s Favorite Son Jeffrey Be Dahmed says:

    What I don’t understand is why you hide that you are from Minnesota and a Vikings fan? You may play football indoors, which is ridiculous, but you should still pull for your team – through the thick and thin.

  17. You would think a man who gets paid to make these silly rankings would at least put in an effort to watch current players and not be like the typical Packer fan, who oogle Rodgers like a teen idol, basing an evaluation solely off his reputation of years past. Has he seen Rodgers play at are since he broke his collar bone?

  18. Does that rating take into account Rodgers’ sideline tantrums and his “I do what I want” locker room attitude?
    Leadership obviously has no place in Simms’ rankings.

    Opinions are ALWAYS subjective, even if you have an axe to grind that influences them.
    And the fact that you’re whining about Simms’ opinion, with your real or imagined slights, is exactly why I was laughing in my original post.

    —–
    A Viking fan talking about sideline tantrums. Excellent awareness buddy, considering the only tantrum I saw last year was your QB and your wr fighting on the sidelines. Never saw AR doing that. Talk about throwing stones from a glass house.

  22. There are a lot of undeserved criticisms of Rodgers here. I think people have forgotten how great he was during his peak from 2009-2014. He backpacked that team to winning seasons when they really didn’t have much else. I would definitely rank him #1 if it were 2014.

    Since then, there’s no denying that he hasn’t been as good as the standard he had set. He was a 6-9-1 quarterback last year, proving that he can’t carry a bad team anymore. He’s still very good and is definitely top 10, but I wouldn’t put him in the top 5 anymore.

    Huh, the only sideline tantrum I can recall from last season was that embarrassing meltdown between Cousins and Thielen during their biggest game of the year.

  24. Has he seen Rodgers play at are since he broke his collar bone?
    —–
    I’m sure he saw last year and realized that even though the offense was as stale and unimaginative as three week old bread, Rodgers still threw for 4500 yards and had 25 td vs 2 int’s, while missing a game due to concussion and playing the first quarter or more of the season with a broken leg. It’s hilarious to see a fan of a team who hasn’t had a QB post numbers that good since Favre talking about how bad AR is.

  25. After the last 2 season Aaron Rodgers’s play doesn’t put him in the top 5. And I am not even going to factor in freezing out WR’s, getting his head coach fired last year. To put him ahead of Tom Brady is absurd.

  26. Rogers would have had more success playing somewhere else. With that said… There is no way he is the best quarterback on any list.

  27. Obviously simms hasn’t watched a packer game the past 5 seasons!

    2014 nfccg

    2017 Rodgers hurt
    2018 wtf season

    Rodgers has more playoff wins in the last five seasons than your team has since Culpeper left. Yet you’re still talking trash. What is it with you purples? No awareness at all.

  28. Let’s face it. Aaron Rodgers is not the same since that loss to the Seahawks in the 2014 season NFC championship game. That was perhaps his best chance of winning another Super Bowl. I think he still hasn’t gotten over that loss and resented Mike McCarthy ever since. It has impacted his style and play. He used to be more structured and relied less on his improvisational skill. In the last four years, he has become more and more like Brett Favre, minus the interceptions. And that’s not exactly a better development in his game. Time will tell if the new coach will make him regain his MVP form in 2011.

    Simms ranking of Rodgers at the top makes no sense when he just had a non-playoff season in 2018 and when Patrick Mahomes was lighting up the league plus few other notable players who played at a higher level. Simms is ranking QBs based on his fandom!

  29. I am always appreciative of the opinions of professionals that work closely in the industry. It confirms the opinions of haters and trolls as ultimately worthless.

  30. I’m a Packers’ fan and an unabashed fan of Rodgers’ thinking man’s style of play, and the fake Packers’/Viking trolls comments are …like … mindless, but, I have to agree w/ Florio in context … Aaron has to prove his supremacy all over again. He can’t do it alone to be sure, but, until he starts chalking up W’s again in the ultimate team sport, that title has go elsewhere…if subjective titles are your thing.

  31. His prime was 2010-2014 when healthy. Can we finally admit that was a long time ago in NFL years?.

  32. It never ceases to amaze me how we can accept and acknowledge how Rodgers calls audibles out of running plays which clearly pad his stats, and acknowledge how his performance has plummeted since losing top receivers, and then still consider him to be the best QB. We’ve already made the case for why and how Rodgers is not as good as the hype is, yet some people are still in denial.

  33. I personally think rankings/power rankings are the most ridiculous thing to argue about but I will play along.

    As a Packers fan I do not think Aaron isn’t the #1 QB I would give that ranking to Brady. I would put him solidly in the top 5 though. I will say this though about Aaron if the guy had better defenses to back him up (especially the last 5-6 years) things would have been better for him.

    —————–

    The better a defense the more possessions a QB gets and therefore can have better game stats.
    The better an offensive line is the better they protect the QB and the better the QBs stats.
    The better the WRs on a team, the more completions the QB gets and fewer ints of tips and miscommunications so the QB stats are better.
    The better the running game is, the less the safeties can drop into coverage and the better play action fakes work which means QB stats are better.

    ————–

    All QB stats are also team stats. They handle the ball the most so they get the credit for their stats and they get most of the credit for wins too.

  35. To many ppl bring up tom brady, no brady is not the best, not even close!!! Brady is the product of a system, just look at the QB’s that replaced him when he was injured or suspended, ie Matt Cassel!!!!! And then lets look at brady’s passing, hmmmm over 50% of his are to RB’s or TE’s 10 or less yds out.Brady os a good QB, but nowhere near great.

  36. Last year when the Pats beat Green Bay, Rodgers didn’t play well, and Brady did, and typically with Tom/Pats the game was firmly in hand 4th quarter. The VERY next day Simms was saying how Rodgers outplayed Brady in that game. I know he’s going for click bait, but he has zero reputation at this point.

    Putting guys like Luck, Deshaun Watson, and Cam Newton is just plain silly- Brady has won like 80 games the last 5 years for crying out loud. I guess wins and availability- as in not getting hurt doesn’t matter!

    Nothing against Rodgers, I love watching him play, but he’s no Brady.

  37. Pro Football Focus:
    2018 #1 NFL QB
    Drew Brees

    Football Outsiders:
    2018 NFL Passing plus and minus
    #1 Drew Brees

    Who knows more about it?

    “No one else can make the throws Aaron Rodgers makes. Even Brady says it. Until that’s not the case, he’s number 1.”

    ===============

    So you are just like Simms who based his rankings on making difficult throws. That’s a flawed way of evaluating the QB position. It’s like playing in the Pro Bowl skills challenge that has nothing to do with the game of football. Do those throws lead to wins? Are they necessary? Are they efficient? If you’re in search of highlight reels, there’s always YouTube for you.

    ——————

    Well we can judge it partially based on how they did statistically against the same competition. They happened to have played against the same team in the playoffs 3 times.

    2011 both beat by the Giants in the playoffs.
    L – Brady 27/41 276 yards 2 TD 1 INT 91.1 rating
    L – Rodgers 26/46 264 yards 2 TD 1 INT 78.5 rating

    2014 both played Seattle in the playoffs
    W – Brady 37/50 328 yards 4 TD 2 INT 101.1 rating
    L – Rodgers 19/34 178 yards 1 TD 2 INT 55.8 rating

    2016 both played Atlanta in the playoffs
    W – Brady 43/62 466 yards 2 TD 1 INT 95.2 rating
    L – Rodgers 27/45 284 yards 3 TD 1 INT 91.6 rating

    Brady was better than Rodgers against all 3 teams and went 2-1 vs 0-3 for Rodgers.

    Brady also had a legit chance to beat the Giants in 2011 but Rodgers 15-1 team that was better than the Patriots overall got pretty much blown out.

    It’s obviously impossible to say how Brady would have done in Green Bay, but the evidence says that Brady has played better than Rodgers in comparable situations.

    _________

    Packer fans love to say Viking fans lack awareness, but here’s a guy saying Rodgers’ numbers last year were better than any quarterback in the last decade. The much-maligned Kirk Cousins had better numbers than Rodgers last year. Much higher completion percentage, more TDs, higher passer rating, and more wins.

    ————————
    And Patrick Mahomes makes throws that Rodgers can only DREAM about, yet Brady is still the #1 overall QB, and Mahomes is the #1 thrower. So all Rodgers is #1 at is whining about his coaches…

  42. When healthy he is but that hasn’t happened for two years. I am a Packer fan but you can’t just say he is cause that is what you think. He has to show it on the field.

  43. You all can try to knock Chris Simms all you want. He played in the NFL. I don’t care if you say he sucked. He got there and thus he has SO MUCH MORE credibility than any of you or Florio when it comes to talking about NFL QB’s.

    Just sit down already. You lost at life.

  44. Of course Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in Pro Football – he has been since 2011, when Peyton Manning’s neck got the better of him. He is among the most physically gifted quarterbacks ever – a real short list that includes John Elway and Michael Vick. He is highly creative, very intelligent, ridiculously resourceful and very tough. THE pick, Chris Simms!

    Footnote: The New England Patriots have won more games than the Green Bay Packers since Rodgers became the starter in 2008. Other teams have also. Football is the ultimate TEAM sport – Simms was ranking only quarterbacks.

    Steve Young won a Super Bowl after Joe Montana and Bill Walsh left so should we discredit Montana and Walsh too?

  47. It’s ok. Every team but New England and KC would rather be starting Rodgers right now.

    New England because of legacy and KC because of youth and not much drop off from Rodgers talent.

    That’s it.

    _______________________________________________________________________________________________

    This again? Since drafting Brady, the Pats have a 19-19 record in games without him. People always point to the Matt Cassel year as some evidence to support Brady as a system QB (whatever that means) without telling the entire story. Although Matt Cassel fizzled out, the year after the Pats he went on to have a pro bowl season with KC. Plus, that Pats team lost 5 more games then the same team did with Brady the year before. Let’s try being somewhat objective here. Taking a 16 game sample size and ignoring 270 games is ludicrous.

    What did Cassel win? They played the easiest schedule and didn’t make the playoffs. BB record without Brady is abysmal. He was about to get fired if Bledsoe didn’t go down and Brady took over.

    Please don’t insult us by pretending that you respect Simms because of his NFL career. If he ranked your favorite player lower than you thought he should, you would be shouting from the rooftops that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

    And I disagree that people who don’t see Rodgers as the #1 quarterback have “lost at life.” I think Florio and many of the rest of us are doing just fine.

  52. It wasn’t too long ago that Rodgers attempted a TD pass to a receiver being covered by Richard Sherman during the NFCC game, exactly 12 months after Kaepernick made that same boneheaded decision. He finished that game with a passer rating below 56. Seems to be coming up short in the big games ever since.

  53. I just realized Chris Simms way of evaluating the quarterback position is based on physical difficulty in throwing the football, not about reading defense, orchestrating at the line of scrimmage, audibling, leading teammates, etc… But does Simms ever think about perhaps a QB like Aaron Rodgers doesn’t always have to make those circus throws when not needed if he can just be efficient and move the chain? Football can be a chaotic game and the leader of the team, likely the QB, understandably needs a mixture of orchestration and improvisation. Off schedule throws are exciting and exhilarating for highlight reels but only needed after the on schedule options are exhausted or broken down. Orchestrating the game can be illustrated in the plays of masters like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, et al. Aaron Rodgers is not there yet. As a football fan, I would like to see that one day when he can fuse the two qualities together to get the desired result. No matter how much we want to analyze the styles of the quarterback position, at the end of the day, football is a game that keeps score to decide a winner. He needs to win more.

  54. Rodgers is finally healthy after being on the wrong end of a broken collar bone, a broken leg, a knee brace, a hamstring pull, and a concussion. Get a grip, haters. Rodgers is going to be fine and will do well.

  55. I realize someone is obsessed with me and tries to put words in my mouth, but failed miserably as usual.

    I never said anything about respecting Simms or not respecting him. I said he has SO MUCH MORE credibility than anyone here when it comes to evaluating NFL QB’s because he played the position in the league.

    I know someone thinks they know how I feel about things, which is part of the creepy obsession they have with me, but they know absolutely ZERO about me and NEVER will.

    I have great respect for Aaron Rodgers, but I have never chosen one single player in the NFL and label them my “favorite player.” I am not a fanboy like someone else obviously is.

    I also never said people who don’t see Aaron Rodgers as the #1 QB in the NFL have lost at life. I directed that at the singular troll who uses 500+ SN’s on website to harrass and stalk Packers fans. Yes, indeed they have lost at life.

  56. Disagree with the list but the man has a right to his opinion. It’s subjective and open to debate as you can see from the comments here.

    Sure, anything is possible. But my opinion is shared with that of an ex-quarterback that currently makes his living working in the sports reporting industry. He and I agree with each other. Maybe you should re-read the title of this piece. Maybe you missed it. I’ll take his opinion over yours. Any day.

  60. Well deserved ranking. Thank you Chris Simms for settling this debate once and for all.

    It truly is humbling to have the privilege of being a Packer fan, and witness the first ballot HoF level of QB play year after year.WI is truly blessed,

    ==================

    Cassel had his best season AFTER leaving the Pats.

  62. These debates always get me because they are rarely objective. I was raised a Packer, but my grandmother taught me to be a football fan first. If a QB was perfect, the standards would be higher than they are now…let’s look at facts, if you want to look at accolades like championships thats a team thing…period. Brady is a good QB in a well placed system that has been seeing playoffs for nearly 3 decades. Did anyone forget Bledsoe? Brady was just a little more talented. How many championships would the Patriots have actually had if there was a Rodgers, Brees, Luck, Wilson,etc. instead of Brady. Heck, let’s be real before a few years ago, there was only a few teams in the AFC that were even worth mentioning. NFC is flooded with competition.Or did no one see the only reason the Patriots made it the year before Deshawn Watson came was because the Texans didn’t have a QB worth his salt. Or why the Giants of all teams seem to have a jump on the Patriots despite their ranking. This is a about best QB. People say that Aaron is the reason that plays fail, but if he had went with said plays and not extended them freestyle 75% of them would have went dead. This season will show us more I am sure, but I meticulously break down football teams in general when I watch. Many of our issues over this decade was our defense. Simple. If it were an Aaron Rodgers problem he wouldn’t be MVP talk every season he’s healthy. As an individual he’s amazing as a team, needed improvement. Give me a % of the time a pass fell through because he was inaccurate vs. if there was a misread, drop, or butterfingers. His overall QBR rating is better than any quarterback in history, let alone this generation. Last season his only 2 interceptions were off 1 player where it was bounced off his hands, BOUNCED! Which means Graham has to make some adjustments. If that were Adams, Cobb, Jordy, Janis, etc. It would have been caught. Oh, I guess we shouldn’t mention the rookies who were probably too star struck or nervous to perform like they do in practice. I love putting facts above hate. Yes, I agree my QB doesn’t have the leadership hoorah that Brady has, he’s arrogant and doesn’t apologize for it. Yet, every QB is not built that way. My grandmother told me that Terry Bradshaw was just as bad…I am not saying he’s flawless he’s just going through the motions that every future Hall of Famer goes through, or do we not forget improvisation of our previous QB?🤔 What we don’t want to examine are the factors out of our control such as players like Drew Brees, another QB I respect, who puts up the numbers every year, yet was robbed this past year and only has 1 SB. There are other accurate QB I repect like Luck and Mahomes, but situations like defenses not capitalizing. Or Montgomery running instead of kneeling…😂….I can be here all day speaking football, but like they say it’s just ny opinion.

  63. No matter how we rank Aaron Rodgers, this season will show us what kind of quarterback he is. If he can go back to 2011 MVP form, he more than likely will go back to the big game. If he stays in the post 2014 rut, he will get his coach fired. Time will tell.

    It seems personally and professionally his life has been a wreck since his buddy Kevin left. Maybe they need to reunite?

  65. To many ppl bring up tom brady, no brady is not the best, not even close!!! Brady is the product of a system
    ____________

    This foolish, old, tired argument has been debunked so many times it should be embarrassing to you that you post it. Brady is the GOAT. So says his peers — both retired and active.

  66. Well deserved ranking. Thank you Chris Simms for settling this debate once and for all.

    So you think Chris Simmms is the last, definitive word on the subject? LOL. You are more delusional than we thought.

    To many ppl bring up tom brady, no brady is not the best, not even close!!! Brady is the product of a system, just look at the QB’s that replaced him when he was injured or suspended, ie Matt Cassel!!!!! And then lets look at brady’s passing, hmmmm over 50% of his are to RB’s or TE’s 10 or less yds out.Brady os a good QB, but nowhere near great.

    Yup and maybe if more QB’s took what defenses gave them they too might be the all time leader in wins. Look, long balls are exciting, I get it. But you want to know what’s more exciting? 6 Super Bowl wins, a freakish streak of division championships and appearances in conference championship games and as mentioned before the most wins in the last 20 years. So you can have Mr. Runaround and chuck it up while I’ll take the cool, calm, intelligent LEADER who is unquestionably the greatest winning QB of all time and as Herm clearly pointed out, “You Play To Win The Game!” Oh, and tell me a QB who isn’t a system QB? Oh, and Matt Cassel is still in the league, 11 years later. Just sayin.
