Which Quarterback Is Doing Better This Season?
Living in Illinois by the Wisconsin boarder has been energizing as a Chicago Bears fan. The rivalry between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears is the best in the National Football League. When it comes to quarterbacks, most fans would agree Aaron Rodgers is the better player. The numbers this season prove something different.
OK Bear fans, brace yourself. Remember, numbers don't lie. At this point of the season, Jay Cutler of the Chicago Bears has out played Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. All I hear in my head are Packer fans everywhere saying "really?".
While the Packers have lost three straight games, the Bears have won their last two games, and a big reason for that is the quarterback play. In fact, in the last six weeks Cutler has a higher passer rating than Rodgers which has never happened before.
According to 24/7 Sports with CBSSports.com, "Cutler has been on a roll since returning from a hamstring injury in Week 4. He has thrown for 1,700 yards, 11 touchdowns and three interceptions with a completion percentage of 66. Rodgers, the current NFL MVP, has 1,499 yards, 11 touchdowns, three interceptions and completion percentage of 60".
Still not convinced? So far this season, Jay Cutler has three fourth-quarter comebacks while Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have one.
Looks like your Thanksgiving Day game between the Green Bay Packers and The Chicago Bears just got a little bit bigger on the schedule.
