No one has the depth and firepower at the receiving positions that Green Bay has, and Mike McCarthy was running some of the NFL's best offense well before Aaron Rodgers ever came along.
So maybe in 2007 they had a better offensive line and running back?
Here is the thing. You are saying he has the depth and firepower at the receiver position so he can overcome a horrible offensive line and no running game. Yet Romo has plenty of targets to throw to, but has a bad oline and running game and fails. The biggest difference then must come down to coaching. If we had Mike Mccarthy here Romo would then be elite like Rodgers?
I can admit our coach sucks bad.. but Romo would be running for his life in Greenbay just like he does here. I have watched Romo and Rodgers extensively and there is simply no comparison. Rodgers has a rocket arm and throws a beautiful pass and usually right on the money or hits his guy in stride. He also absolutely HATES to throw an interception or fumble the ball and he does a tremendous job protecting the ball. In 2011 he had 4600 yards passing, 46 touchdowns, and ONLY 6 picks. And that is with a horrible offensive line and no running game. You can chalk that up to him having better receivers and a better coach, but I chalk it up to him being elite. He makes those receivers better, and he makes that coach look good.
