From purely a football standpoint only, which passer-receiving duo would you prefer?

We recently did a poll where we asked you who would you prefer at running back for the next two years, Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy or Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson?

Sixty three percent of you who voted said they preferred Lacy, a number sure to be higher if the voters were all Packers fans. However, we do love and welcome other teams’ fans as visitors, and it was probably they who made up the majority of the 37 percent.

So think about this, Packers Nation, hands down (more than 1,200 votes cast), prefers the rookie from Alabama over the reigning league MVP. Have we ever had a running back we could say that about?  Ahman Green, perhaps, and that’s about it.

So with that as a back drop, it got me to thinking, who would you prefer as a passing duo, Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson?  Or would you rather have Matthew Stafford and Calvin “Mega-tron” Johnson?

I posted no statistics of either duo by design, knowing full well you (the readers) know these guys inside and out already, and can decipher which pair you prefer based on having watched them all play between the lines on more than one occasion.

Let’s have fun, but vote with your football knowledge, not as homers, and see which pair score’s higher.
