Today is the big showdown between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers as the New England Patriots play the Green Bay Packers in a Sunday afternoon showdown.  The two quarterbacks are considered two of the greatest in the league and the game is expected to be a shootout.  Patriots coach Bill Belichick was unwillingly to compare the two QB’s but he did make an a pretty interesting comparison between Rodgers and two other quarterbacks.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn’t have much to say this week when he was asked to compare Tom Brady to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

As a matter of fact, he only had five words to to say, “They both wear No. 12,” Belichick said on Wednesday.

Belichick may not have been willing to compare Rodgers with Brady, but he was willing to compare Rodgers to two other pretty decent quarterbacks. During an interview on the Patriots All-Access show on the team’s official website, Belichick said Rodgers plays like Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning combined.

“Offensively, of course, it starts with the quarterback Aaron Rodgers,” Belichick said of the Packers offense, via CSNNE.com. “He does a tremendous job of running the team. He’s very athletic. His scrambling ability and passing ability is almost like Luck and Manning combined, if you will.”
