This is one of my fantasy baseball teams that I have this season. Some of these players I drafted, but I acquired a bunch of the players via free agency. My record is 14-4.
Is this team unfair.

I think they could go undefeated. If they lose to anyone it will be one of 3 teams. Seattle, Arizona, or Detroit after the Thanks giving game. The Packers play another thursday night game the week after the Thanksgiving game.
With the Calvin Johnson rule, that was not a catch. Plus there was a fair amount of time for Rodgers to mount a comeback drive if the Cowboys had scored. Dallas shouldn't have even been playing Green Bay. In the Dallas vs Detroit game, There was clear pass interference, And they picked up the flag after the fact. SMH. Detroit got screwed.
Brady is a cheater and a benefiter of the NFL's hatred towards Al Davis(The Most Suspected Reason They Reversed The Call To An Incomplete Pass). He didn't deflate the balls but the fact that he knew and destroyed his own phone means that he was okay with continuing to cheat.
I would understand your criteria for Rodgers if the Packers won the Super Bowl and didn't go undefeated, BUT, If they do go undefeated, he deserves serious consideration. He plays the QB position better than anyone has ever played the position, Including Johnny Unitas.
Rivers will have a better year than romo next year. The cowboys have a pretty chokable schedule.
My Criteria for All Time Greatness is stats, a super bowl win, and skill at the position. When All is said and done, I believe that Aaron Rodgers will go down as the Greatest. I placed a bet on 4 teams to make it to the Super Bowl. I believe I will win those bets. On Mike and Mike in the morning, one of the Mikes had the exact 4 teams I predicted to be in championship games, Packers, Seahawks, Ravens, Steelers.
My Gut is saying Packers vs Ravens.
I believe Rodgers gets ring number 2 this year, and I also think that it is possible that Rodgers goes 19-0 this year because of how easy their schedule is. Apparently Ty Montgomery the guy they drafted out of Stanford is their newest secret weapon. He is just like Randall Cobb.
And if Rodgers does indeed take his packers to a 19-0 record this year, you have to put him in the top 2 all time.
Overall at playing the position, Rivers is better than both. But when it comes to playing the position, and including accomplishment, plus Ben is hard to bring down, You have to give the Edge to Roethlisberger.
There are things that Rivers does at the QB Position that are better Than how Roethlisberger does, and there are things at the QB position that Roethlisberger does that are better than what rivers does.
Roethlisberger and Rivers do everything better at the QB position than Romo. Except turn the ball over, Romo is tops at turning the ball over.
