Alex Smith vs Aaron Rodgers(updated)

Who do you guys believe is a better quarterback now?  Its been some years and both have had totally different paths.  How do you think Aaron Rodgers would of been if he was drafted by the 49ers.  I believe that he would of had been in the same situation as Alex Smith.  The 49ers has had different systems and offensive coordinators every year since we picked up Alex Smith as the number one overall draft pick.  Here goes a stat by stat comparison.


                                      Alex Smith                 Aaron Rodgers

Games                                   36                                    32

Pct                                          55.7                               63.4

Yards                                   5487                               6811

TD                                            25                                  46

Int                                             37                                  19

Sacks                                      91                                  84

QB Rating                             65.7                               95.1           

Wins/Losses                      12/23                            10/15


Now stats wise it is a no brainer that Aaron Rodgers would be a better quarterback but where my concern is, is the wins and losses part.  I would say Aaron Rodgers has played on much better teams then Alex Smith has and he can only come up with 10 wins and 14 losses?  As I watch both of these players now I see many comparisons.  Alex Smith makes better reads.     Aaron Rodgers seems to hold on to the ball way to long and the packers and 49ers have both equally as bad offensive lines.  Both of these quarterbacks seem to not be able to make the play to win the game.   They play good when they play but they just dont win games for your team.  I believe with Alex Smiths experience he surpasses Aaron Rodgers as a better quarterback.  As terrible as Smith has been so far this season during the pressure points of the games, he has played fairly decent and I feel comfortable with him as our quarterback.  Ultimately, Aaron Rodgers will probably have a better career.
