Dilfer is of the opinion that the modern game of football is easy for quarterbacks. The former Baltimore Ravens QB said that he doesn’t like the modern game of football. Here is what he said.

“Modern day game does not impress me. It’s super easy when you don’t get hit as a quarterback and when you can reroute receivers and when you can hit the guys across the middle. I love Tom Brady, I love Aaron Rodgers, I love these guys. It’s not impressive,” Dilfer said.

Dilfer won the Super Bowl with the Ravens in the 2000 season. And it was the same season when the NFL got its GOAT Tom Brady. When Dilfer retired after the 2007 NFL season, Brady had already established himself as one of the best QBs in the league.

And the NFL world also saw the rise of another big name around then, Aaron Rodgers. Many QBs came and went. These two ruled the league for a long time.

Different eras, different perceptions 

Change is the only constant in any walk of life. And it holds true even in the world of sports. The NFL was once a run-heavy league when the running backs ran the show. But it then shifted to a more pass-heavy game as time went by. So, the quarterback became the most important position on the team.

Time doesn’t stop for anyone. It is changing again and now is the time for a dual-threat QB. A dual-threat QB is one who can both pass and run the ball. And this development has rendered even Tom Brady obsolete. But nobody can deny that Brady had the most successful career in the NFL, winning seven Super Bowl rings. The legendary QB announced his retirement last week. And he bows out as the face of not only the teams he played for but football in general.
