As great as Aaron Rodgers has been during Green Bay's eight-game win streak, Matt Ryan has been even better.

But you also have to factor in the weather conditions. This was the same argument from 2011 with Brees vs Rodgers. You can't just do a straight up comparison stats vs stats against a guy playing outdoors in the North in November and December vs a guy playing in domes. The only outdoor games Ryan played in during that span were in Los Angeles and Carolina. Rodgers also faced tougher defenses during that stretch. During that stretch Rodgers played two snow games at Lambeau Field and a game in Chicago with a -15 wind chill. It was so cold players decals were falling off their helmets. Its asinine to do a straight up comparison between the two.

I wonder if Aaron Rogers family problems will be a distraction 4 him in this game. It got out in media this week. Everything points to a Falcons victory.

That's a pretty old story. That news broke during the summer. I don't think Rodgers cares very much at this point. If anything, Rodgers tends to be at his best when being trashed by the media. He's got that Tom Brady chip on his shoulder.

You remember the same argument against Vick that year we came to Lambeau and stomped Green Bay? Vick put on a show in those temperatures. Different situation but the argument has nothing to stand on other than some correlation. It's why the game is played.
