Overview sectionEdit

Jerry Stockton and Sabbatino, before we all get into an edit war over these changes, let's discuss this. Jerry Stockton, "Overview" sections aren't used in Wikipedia articles. General overview information should be added to the lead of the article, not in a separate summary section in the body of the article. Regarding your content additions, I don't think anybody disagrees that Rodgers has been listed as one of, if not the greatest, quarterback to play football. However, this a a controversial statement that is not a universal fact, so it needs to be backed up by reliable sources and inline citations. It also needs to be written in a neutral point of view. Instead of "Aaron Rodgers is the greatest quarterback ever", a more neutral POV would be "Due to his high level of play over an extended period of time, many football analysts have ranked Aaron Rodger as one of the best, if not the greatest, quarterback to play in the NFL" with multiple inline citations after the statement backing it up. I can't speak for Sabbatino, but these are the concerns I have with your recent additions. Cheers, « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 15:22, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

@Gonzo fan2007: Well, I removed the "Overview" section, because that is as trivial as "Trivia" section would be. Moreover, all the records held by Rodgers are already listed in the "Awards and achievements" section. As for the statement about him being "considered by some to be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time", I moved that to lede, because there is no better place for such statements, and Jordy Nelson, Johnny Unitas or Tom Brady pages are the best examples that such statements should be included in the lede. However, I do agree that this particular statement should be altered to a more neutral POV formation. – Sabbatino (talk) 16:18, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Sabbatino, just to clarify, I agree with the removal of the "Overview" section and the edits you made. Cheers, « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 16:41, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
