Martellus Bennett, the tight end who retired from the NFL this year after playing for both the Patriots and the Packers last year, had an interesting comparison of the two teams quarterbacks.
Bennett told Doug Gotlieb that Rodgers throws the ball better than anyone, but Brady is the better quarterback.
Bennett said Brady has the leadership you want in a quarterback and that makes the difference.
“He makes the game easy, what he expects, where he wants you to be, where he’s putting the ball, he does so many repetitions with you, mental reps, physical reps, walk-through, he’s always letting you know,” Bennett said of Brady. “He communicates the best of what he expects. The communication between him and the receiver is on the highest level: What you like to do, what he likes to throw, if you ask him to do something he’ll try it.”
Aaron’s mobility can definitely make it a little more difficult if you’re a tight end or receiver, you have to be prepared to keep plays alive. Tom’s immobility on the other hand allows players to know what to expect on each and every play.
