There is a price to pay for being considered the GOAT of the NFL with seven Super Bowl rings on his fingers.

Rodgers has proved that he is a brilliant passer from time and time again and that he can thrive in a team that lacks in many aspects. And that is something that makes him more special. Many might argue that if Aaron Rodgers could ever play with a team complete by all means, he may just shower Super Bowl titles on that franchise.

On the other hand, Tom Brady’s achievements can not be overlooked at all costs. Winning is a habit, and Tom Brady has mastered it over the years with or without Belichick. Furthermore, the Brady effect is so drastic that it is so easily noticeable.
