Oh Brett Favre. It was so good not having to hear about you all over ESPN. Packers fans have moved on from the end of your career and are now immersed in the Aaron Rodgers era. Favre had a radio interview in Atlanta and had some interesting things to say.
“He just kind of fell into a good situation.” ”The talent around him is even better than when I was there.” ”So I’m really kind of surprised it took him so long.”
Thanks to NBC Sports for the story on this. Those are the main quotes from his interview that bother me. Favre may have not been trying to come off as bitter, but he certainly sounds like it. It may be my dislike for the man, but the way he comes off in this interview makes him sound jealous. Rodgers did fall into a great situation, but he had to work at it. He doesn’t make the game killing mistakes that Favre was known for. Rodgers has only been a starter for 3 years. How long did Favre think it would take him to win one?
Maybe I’m overreacting, but it sounds like someone is a bit jealous that their successor already has as many Super Bowl wins as he does.
