Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is playing some of the best football of his career, and one of his biggest fans is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
During a his weekly interview on WEEI, Brady said he studies Rodgers on film and is blown away by some of the throws he makes on a regular basis.
“Everything really looks effortless with him, which is the amazing part,” Brady said. “He’s definitely working hard, but he’s making hard look easy; it’s a very effortless style he plays with. The velocity of the ball, the placement of the ball, I mean, he’s just an incredible player. He works very hard at it, he’s a very talented player, and he’s just having an incredible season. I always love watching his tape, admiring the things he can do, because I can’t do many of those things. . . . Whenever he’s on, I usually stay up and watch.”
The two quarterbacks are one game away from potentially meeting in Super Bowl LI in Houston. Despite Rodgers’ consistency as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, he only has one Super Bowl appearance. A matchup between Brady and Rodgers—two of the greatest quarterbacks of all time—could make for one of the better Super Bowls in recent history.
