Green Bay Packers fans have been spoiled with Hall of Fame quarterback play for the past three decades. Of course, front office issues have led to just two Lombardi Trophies during this time, but strong quarterback play nearly always leads to wins.

It has been incredible to watch both Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers put their dominance on display in the NFC North over the years and, of course, the two will always been linked and compared. While they play very different styles of quarterback, there is one shocking parallel between the two.

Following each quarterback's first 182 starts, both have secured 119 wins.

While it's nearly impossible to truly compare the other stats from each quarterback up against one another, due to the style of play and league around them evolving, it's interesting to see both players end up with the same amount of wins, at this point. It shows how consistent the Packers have been over the years, despite the tough divisional competition.

This goes to show that consistent, strong quarterback play is important. The Packers just hope Jordan Love will develop into the next franchise quarterback, creating another smooth transition.
