GREEN BAY -- Arguably the two best quarterbacks in the NFL, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, are set to face each other this Sunday at Gillette Stadium, in what should be one of the best games of the season.
In an interview with ESPN, the 5-time Super Bowl winning QB Tom Brady discussed what it would have been like if Rodgers had played under Patriots coach Bill Belichick's system.
Brady said that if Rodgers had the Patriots' offensive system and exhaustive knowledge of opposing defenses, "He'd throw for 7,000 yards every year. He's so much more talented than me."

Although Tom Brady is by-far the most accomplished QB of all-time, with the most regular season wins (202) and playoff wins (27) than any quarterback in the history of the NFL, Brady still believes that Rodgers' skill level is higher than his.
"I think he's so phenomenal with how he manages himself in the pocket. His ability to throw the football is unlike anyone in probably the history of the league. It's pretty awesome to watch. He throws some of the best incompletions I've ever seen," said Brady.
When asked about who is the greatest quarterback of all-time, Rodgers said "he's got five championships...I think that ends most discussions."

Sunday will mark only the second time that Brady and Rodgers will both start the game and go head-to-head. In 2014, Rodgers defeated Brady 26-21 at Lambeau Field. The Patriots went on to win the Super Bowl that year.
