Health is a huge factor here

Rodgers has a very bright future, and I cannot stand the cry baby Manning (though he's developed into a very good NFL QB. I will give credit where it's due). Rodgers has shown that he can be a super star QB in the first 5 weeks, but he has done nothing to prove that he can stay healthy. Sure, he's playing through pain... a separated shoulder is nothing to scoff at, but it's one thing after another with him.

Now, if Rodgers can stay healthy, then I think he's the better QB long term hands down. Eli's first 5 (starting) NFL games:

3 TDs, 7 INTs, 632 yards

I think both have a very bright future in the NFL, and if Rodgers can stay healthy he will have a better career... he's already off to a better start than Eli, but I'm VERY skeptical if he can stay healthy.

If I'm a betting man/starting my franchise, I go with Eli. He's the safer option, has already established himself (no risk of losing his job, Rodgers has one year to show he's worth a contract extension).

The better quarterback isn't always the better fantasy option. Troy Aikman in Dallas comes to mind. Pretty decent QB (IMO), but a horrible fantasy option. Right now, Rodgers would appear to be in a better fantasy situation. But if I was an NFL coach, would I chose Rodgers over E.Manning? I'm not so sure.

You really can't look at these 2 QB's based on what they've done in their first 5 games. Eli started putting in work in a rookie season. Aaron Rodgers played back for 3 years and inherited a pretty good offensive group. It's too early to figure out who'll have better success because it's still kind of early. But for now, it has to be Eli because....he's already led his team to a Super Bowl win.

I agree with most of this.Add in that the Giants seem to genuinely believe in their coaching staff and that they've already won it all. Those are two extremely significant milestones in today's NFL so, I think Eli has a leg up on Rodgers there. Maybe it shouldn't be with the coaching but...I think it is. There's something easier about the game when everyone is on the same page to that degree. Giant fans can just think back a few years to see a tremendous difference between respect for Coughlin then and now.The Pack have a talented D but not necessarily the results. Rodgers will find it hard to win big games without those results on D. Again, it's easier for Eli is he only has to lead his team to X amount of points while Rodgers has to get Y amount. Yet another reason, I just think Eli has it easier.If I were starting a franchise I wouldn't choose Eli. His reactions to things are so different so laid back and almost uninterested. It works for him and I understand he's had a life full of scrutiny and expectations so that's how it developped. Still, I can't imagine choosing that attitude. I would not have predicted it would work so well for him.
 
Better fantasy QB is Rodgers hands down then.

GB has no running game right now (so far) and their D isn't as strong as NYG. Therefore Rodgers will be throwing plenty. Add in that Rodgers has the best weapons WR1-5 than any other team in the league.
