Aaron Rodgers is a Super Bowl MVP.But his former mentor was surprised it took Rodgers so long.
Brett Favre joined an Atlanta radio station and discussed the Packers Super Bowl season.
While calling Rodgers a “tremendous talent” and “bright,” he also said his replacement “fell into a good situation.”
Favre’s calculated feelings didn’t stop there:
“I don’t think there’s any pressure on him now, that talent around him is even better than when I was there. So I’m really kind of surprised it took him so long.”
Rodgers will most likely brush these comments aside with the same California cool he has his entire post-Favre career.
Green Bay’s current quarterback is at ease with his current state of affairs. It’s clear the Packers’ former quarterback isn’t.
