AMA Question

Hey Chris, Alan here from Ireland, Love the show.

My question is Hypothetically if You Put the 2005 Aaron Rodgers in place of Tom Brady for the Patriots Selection in the 2000 Draft, How different do you think things would be today? Would the Patriots have appeared in more or less Superbowls ? And would they have a better or worse Record? Finally would Aaron Rodgers still be playing today like Tom is ?
