I have always said I would have passed on Smith and Rodgers.
But I in no way agree Rodgers would have been as bad.
I think Rodgers as of right now would be the locked in starter and probably with rated 10 more points in the career rating category. Now Alex is a 63.5 career passer and will go down as a top 3 BUST ALL-TIME.
I have watched A Rod plenty, imo, no way his performance would have been that bad in the same situation.
Don't get me wrong at 75 career rating 4 years later, I would be calling for drafting a new QB anyway...so whats the difference from that perspective.
Aaron would have fared a little better
BTW, Rodgers is a 91 rated passer. There is no way the difference between 30 points is development. You have to give players more credit than that guys
