Which only goes to once again show that TT hasn't been the drafting guru packer fans claim he is. If it weren't for Aaron, he'd be flogged in public.
Minnesota has a more talented team, just not at the most important position. Which of course comes down to if Ponder can step up and compliment the team he has behind him.

We are Viking fans and we have to be truthful. Aaron Rodgers is the best QB I probably ever, at age 29 we can't WISH he takes a step back OUR franchise QB has to step up.

Any Vikings fan HOPING WISHING for a down year from Rodgers tell me one thing. He has no confidence in Ponder stepping up.

Christian Ponder needs to pull his own weight and not wait for Peterson to carry the vikings like 2012.

NFL.com 's Dave Dameshek took this question head-on and gave his full breakdown of each division's team and also ranked the divisions 1-8. You can view his full division-by-division breakdown here, but on vikings.com , we are of course focused on the NFC North.

Dameshek ranked the NFC North second to only the loaded NFC West, who - according to Dameshek - got the edge due to "a shutdown defense and a rugged offensive line." When it comes to the NFC North's high ranking, Dameshek credits the division having the best QB, RB, and WR in the NFL, along with an all-world pass rush. Here's is his All-NFC North team:

OFFENSE

Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers
Running back: Adrian Peterson
Wide receivers: Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Greg Jennings
Tight end: Kyle Rudolph
Offensive tackles: Jermon Bushrod, Matt Kalil
Guards: Brandon Fusco, T.J. Lang
Center: John Sullivan

DEFENSE (4-3)

Defensive ends: Jared Allen, Julius Peppers
Defensive tackles: Ndamukong Suh, Henry Melton
Outside linebackers: Clay Matthews, Chad Greenway
Inside linebacker: Stephen Tulloch
Cornerback: "Peanut" Tillman, Sam Shields
Safeties: Harrison Smith, Glover Quin

And the breakdown by team:
Bears: 5
Lions: 4
Packers: 4
Vikings: 9

As you can see, the Vikings are the runaway winners for most players on the team within the NFC North. For all the divisions, only three teams (Texans, Chiefs and 49ers) had more than nine players on any given All-Division team.

The Packers was one game better then the Vikes, Im not denying that Aaron is a good QB But I am saying if Aaron was the best ever as you put it He wouldn't be taking near the sack he takes & many of them is of his own doing by holding onto the ball to long. We all agree the Packers have some very good receiver right? so why does Aaron need the time he takes to find them? The best QB ever wouldn't need that extra time now would he? He isn't the best ever & thats just one reason why he isn't.
