Brett Favre on Aaron Rodgers: He Will Shatter Everything I Did


Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre’s time with the Packers didn’t exactly end how he had imagined, but the future Hall of Famer is finally coming around and acknowledging that, despite it not making sense to him at the time, the Packers choosing to go with Aaron Rodgers was a move that had to be made.

Favre is completely over the way that his time ended in Green Bay and he stated that he understood it was time for the team to move in a younger direction.

“I understood that they had a young quarterback who had tremendous potential, that they had to find out what he could do,” Favre said, during an interview with Sirius XM. “And, quite frankly, I had probably my best year in 16 years that past season and there’s two ways to look at that.

“If you’re in the organization and you’re making decisions you got to feel like, ‘OK, he had a great year but he’s probably maxed out.’ That’s kind of what I would have been thinking. Now, obviously my side of it is, ‘I think I still can play.’ The way it went down was not the best of ways and I think people have learned from it and, again, I’m over it.”

It didn’t stop there, Favre went on to compliment Rodgers for all that he has accomplished since taking over as the team’s starting quarterback and he went on to say that he believes Rodgers will end up breaking nearly all of the records that he set during his time with the team.

“Aaron has played extremely well, probably even better than anyone anticipated, but I knew he was capable of that and that’s why they drafted him,” Favre said. “Barring any injury he’ll shatter everything I ever did there except for maybe consecutive games.”

Everyone involved in the organization has to be thrilled to see Favre coming around. Hopefully one day Favre will be able to return to Lambeau Field and have an afternoon set to honor him and all of the accomplishments that he was able to achieve during his time with Green Bay.

He deserves it.

    I feel the same way,Sonny. He was part of the reason the Packers have been so good for so long.

    Heads Up Big Ace Stud & Mothafutha; You Gotta Have Soul Bro’ So,ooooo Aa asin “A” -ace and “a” again. yo’ so fugn cool, yo’ got two ” a’s” in Aaron, payn’ the cost to be the boss, so yo’ B mufu da’ BOSS. Put that trash-talk away my friend. White talk is boss in America, so we must talk properly, except AaaRon Rodgers, he can talk any way he wana’ b, cuz he’z da’ real boss of da’ bossiz, an’ da’ bossizboss, man o’ man, yo’ fo-git an’ eye pud’ a ho’ L in yo’ head. man. Now, See ree usz’ Lee, yo’ dis’ b’ da’ game:

    Nobody ever thought Capn’ Rodgers could hold-up, and be that sackless. I think Brett was foolin’ round with the reporter. Did Favre say anything about getting sacked 55 kabillion times last year? Probably not. Did they say anything about, well, the running backs cannot make it more than 2 yards past the scrimmage line, so I’ll do it myself (get inside ARodg’s head) We won’t have to worry about not having enough talented running backs who will knock you on your can and run like hell after dat chit man. O’L Teddy T brought in a contingency of backs ( which were supposed to be SHARED by the NFL) of the top rated runners coming out of only big name stars, who played on 80K stadiums all year, just like the NFL they can get so quiet you hear a button pop, or so damn loud your head could pop. Juss’ like NFL. I think ol”Teddy Shchpagetty[WE LOVE HIM DEARLY]‘ will hold out on selling any of the 32 running backs he picked up until after the opener, then sell at inflated prices (MY TIP OF THE DAY). Will someone call the messenger to take a copy to TT, please?

    Back to our Saintly quarterbacks who together will run the helms of the offense for over a century by the time Rodgers shatters Favres records. Come on Brett, he’d have to play until 62 to do that. Don’t be toying with the Packers, so they feel bad about making the NFL a K5 through HS+1 or K3-5 1-8 and Freshman through Senior{that’s K1 through K9-K12 [plus (+)1] =[ k -13]} *Note: *13 is freshman year of college.

    One more thing, for Brett, (not really, it’s for the line of scrimmage-D)

    Have you ever seen AaRodg after a game against a good defensive line? If he got any more bruises on himself, he’d have to be declared another darker color, not white. Can you imagine the beating the state (WI) cops would give him if they ask him all his major stats, and he declared white but he really was brown/black/purple from the sax all day long? I really pray to God for him, not to get hurt just like I did for Brett during his hey-day(szzzzzz z z z z z). goood night guyzz z z How long would Favre have lasted under the pressures Aarod had last year. He did go out there hurting pretty bad a few times… let’s just hope the luck of the Lepricon goes his way, like it did for BF all those glorious years. We still Love ya, Brett, and m glad yo’ b cool an’ fo’ reel. Yo’ Brett, get a job man. Ya, yo’ #1BigStudYetStill2day2yet Come back and talk real cool. Maybe shed a few tears and pound on the desk or wall or something, cuz’ yo; cryin’ mad, like I wuz’ hearin’ yo’ yu gone? back then.
