C.J. Stroud’s Choice: Eli Manning or Aaron Rodgers?

When asked if he would rather have Eli Manning’s or Aaron Rodgers‘ career, the Texans’ star quarterback chose Manning. Stroud’s reasoning was straightforward: Manning has two Super Bowl rings, while Rodgers has just one. This preference underscores Stroud’s belief in the ultimate measure of a quarterback’s success—championships.

The Brady Factor

Stroud didn’t stop at comparing Manning and Rodgers. He shared insights from his mentor, Tom Brady, emphasizing the importance of how a quarterback treats his teammates.

“You know what I think it is?” Stroud said. “I’ve talked to Tom Brady about this because he’s a good mentor to me. What he told me is his teammates, and how he treats his teammates. And that’s where I think it falls off. We don’t know how Aaron Rodgers treats his teammates, but you can guarantee that Tom Brady treats his teammates right because of how he got those rings.”
