At 42, Tom Brady continues to do the impossible day by day as he enduringly fills in as a starting quarterback in the NFL. The California-born athlete ended his 20-year-long association with the New England Patriots in search of a fresh challenge.

The six-time Super Bowl winner joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a bumper contract that’s unheard of from a player of his age.

On the other hand, we have a one-team man, Aaron Rodgers. For Packers fans, the now 36-year-old is six years younger than Brady but still holds legend status.

Rodgers is touted as the most-skilled quarterback the league has ever seen by a number of NFL experts. However, a huge faction claims that he’s overrated.

Here’s what well-known sports analyst, Stephen A. Smith, had to say on the Tom Brady vs Aaron Rodgers debate.

Stephen A. Smith rates Tom Brady above Aaron Rodgers in a recent interview

The outspoken Smith appeared on ESPN First Take on Saturday where he was asked to assess the differences between the two legendary NFL quarterbacks, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.

“You know how I feel, Aaron Rodgers is a bad man. You know where I stand on that. In this particular instance, I’m going to disagree with you. I’m not looking at it in the same way.

“When the question was asked, I didn’t take it as ‘Who’s the more talented QB?’ I’m looking at this upcoming season and saying who do I think will look better.

“You know what I’m paying attention to, not just that he (Tom Brady) has Gronkowski. But he has Gronkowski with OJ Howard and with Cameron Brate.

“Tom Brady’s best years is when he’s had both – a slot caliber receiver like Julian Edelman or when he had the two tight ends. Whether it would be Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski,” Smith said on the show.

Aaron Rodgers greatest talent before Patrick Mahomes’ emergence, says Smith

Smith also addressed Tom Brady’s rating as the fifth-best quarterback in the league heading into the 2020 season.

“Of course I’m going to tell you that Aaron Rodgers, as a talent, is the greatest ever since before we saw Patrick Mahomes. I’m talking about from a talent perspective. I totally believe in Aaron Rodgers.

“But I do believe that Tom Brady can have a better season than Rodgers because of the situation he finds himself in (at Tampa Bay Buccaneers),” Smith concluded.
