There was only one year out of the last four that Brees outscored Rodgers, and he had to break the all-time single-season yardage marker to do it, and he STILL only beat him by less than two points. Five years ago Brees also came in #1 with Rodgers in #2, but that was in Rodgers' first year as a starting QB.
Rodgers' dual threat capabilities are what should make everyone select him above Brees again this year (but not first in QB's, imho).
That all depends on your scoring system. In 2 of the 3 leagues I play in locally, the scoring comparison goes like this:
Which leads to one year for Rodgers and one year that is essentially a wash.
Edit - So, I'd go with Brees myself. But, I'd be entirely happy to have Rodgers...
