I often hear people comparing the two QBs as being similar. But I do believe Brady's legacy is on another tier than AR's. Rodgers may be the better of the two in skills. And no question Brady has benefited by playing for Belichick. But Brady is on the highest tier legacy-wise. Brady says he's going to be back this coming season (he'll be 42 years old to begin the season). His physical skills have declined a bit, but he's still a good QB.
I read something this past week somewhere saying Tom Brady actually was a "game manager" QB in his early years with the Patriots. I figure he's probably back to that level now (he had a passer rating of 97 this season, and was ranked 7th in passing yards). But he's still one heck of a game manager to have leading a team.
Aaron Rodgers just seems like a moody self-centered guy, but with great skills, still.

In competitive sports I think the final measuring stick is wins and losses and then finally championships.
By those standards, Brady (as well as several other QBs) are well ahead of Rogers. You can always discuss one player does something quite specific better than another player. But eventually your performance has to end up helping your team win games.
You can argue there are great players who ended up playing on inferior teams and that is true, like Kelly playing for the Buffalo Bills. But the purpose of playing the game is to win and to not be fair to all the players.
