Manziel and Rodgers have the exact same competition percentage, Rodgers has a lower yards per attempt average and a barely higher QBR.
The Packers are still sending paychecks to Rodgers while Manziel is currently out of the league, but the Packers have been far from impressive to through five games. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate The NFL Season With The Hottest Cheerleaders In The Game)
On Sunday they were defeated by a Dallas Cowboys team being led by rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and are currently 3-2. An NFC North title seems to be more unlikely with every day that goes by thanks to the hot start of the undefeated Minnesota Vikings.
Rodgers has 10 touchdowns on the season and seven turnovers through the first five games. Not a good stat line by any measure.
