Rodgers won't get the yards passing record and probably the TD passing record this year. While Tom Brady was throwing numerous garbage TDs in 2007 while running up scores, Rodgers was removed from the Minnesota game with 11:00 remaining in the game. He's not interested in records (other than the winning games records).
The insane thing is if you count his rushing TDs, he probably gets the TD record all while not playing entire games.
@Kaba...how were the 2007 Patriots better? The 2011 Packers are holding the Championship Belt. The 2011 Packers are gunning for an undefeated record. The Packers have won 18 in a row, and with a win this Sunday against the Raiders they will have eclipsed the 2007 Patriots 18 game win streak.
When they go undefeated, they will be the best team of All-Time.

@Ripperlicious: The Pats' defense was better than the Packers' is now. Both offenses are comparable. Also please, stop being so aggressive whenever someone says something slightly critical of the Packers. It doesn't help.

Secondly, the 2007 Patriots were a better team because not only did they pass the ball better than anybody else (and I would also say better than the 2011 Packers can), but they were also extremely efficient at running the ball as well, and they also had a better defense than these Packers do. You have to identify the differences between great teams and dominant teams; the 2011 Packers are great, but the 2007 Patriots dominated not just opponents but the entire league. The Packers are largely a one-dimensional team, their saving grace is that that one dimension happens to be performed so well.
To be honest, I'm not sure there's that much at all differentiating the Packers from the Saints or Patriots this year except that they have a slightly better offense and a slightly better defense. But this isn't a dominant team, and to see them be undefeated at this point in the season and likely remaining that way throughout the rest of the regular season is strange to me. I'll take the 2007 Patriots over the 2011 Packers every day and twice on Sunday. How can this team be the best team in history when they can't even lead the league in DVOA? Come on man, you're kidding yourself.

One question though: Did DVOA help the 07 Pats beat the 07 Giants? You can take your "measurements" all you want and stick them in the toilet because it's all about the W's. I will promise I won't say "I told you so" until after the Super Bowl.

Seriously, DVOA? I tend to not be quite as adamant as Ripper, but DVOA? Unless the top teams every have the highest DVOA ever, what's your point?
