Michael Irvin’s thoughts on Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer and Brandon Weeden

When you have a career as incredible as Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin’s, chances are you know what it takes to be a great quarterback in the NFL.

On Mad Dog Sports Radio, Irvin broke down the performances of a number the most talked about passers in the league this year, starting with the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers.

“He’s the only person really that has reached that level that, cerebrally, he matches the Tom Brady’s and Peyton Manning’s, and then physically, he matches anybody being able to run around, move around, but still remain accurate,” said Irvin. “He is the supreme quarterback in the National Football League.”

Irvin also spoke about the “rebirth” of the 3-0 Arizona Cardinals’ Carson Palmer.

“I was lukewarm on Carson Palmer all along,” Irvin said. “This was a guy, if you remember – walked away from football. Now, when a guy walks away from football and he suffers a knee injury, usually he’s like, ‘Hey, I’m done. I’m outta here.’ But he wanted to play so bad with this group and with Bruce Arians that he worked so hard to get back, and they’re just doing some incredible things.”

Irvin then talked about Brandon Weeden and whether he thinks the Dallas Cowboys can survive in Tony Romo’s absence.

“I’m lukewarm on thinking they can survive,” he said. “I’m no longer saying, ‘Can they survive until Tony Romo and Dez Bryant get back?’ I know the the answer to that is no. Now the question has to be, ‘Can they survive until more calvary comes for that defense?'”
