Bill Belichick Compares Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers; “They Both Wear No. 12”
New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady and Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers face each other as starters for the first time in their careers this week. So when Bill Belichick was asked by reporters to comment on the similarities between the two, he shared this thought-provoking and incredibly deep comment (via NFL.com).
They both wear No. 12.

Wow, old Belichick certainly has a way with his words. A two-year old could have come up with the answer.
At least Brady had the class to really share some complimentary comments regarding his fellow quarterback and Week 13 opponent stating..
He’s phenomenal. He’s just a great player. I always love watching him play, cause he does things a lot of guys in the league can’t do — that nobody can do, really, except him. For a quarterback, I really know how hard it is to do that, especially on a consistent basis, and he’s been as consistent as anybody that’s ever played the position. I got a lot of respect for him.
I’m sure Rodgers if asked about Brady would have nothing but high regards for his elder rival also.
This should be a fantastic game to watch in Week 13 when two of the most elite quarterbacks in the NFL, who coincidentally wear the No. 12 face off in Lambeau this weekend. Both quarterbacks have awesome receiving weapons and this should be a high-scoring offensive affair as the 9-2 Patriots try to stay on their winning streak against a 8-3 Packers.
