My team double crossed me. Sure Favre was a waffling back and forth too old, but not too old player who can probably play for another 100 years, but his mind keeps getting in the way. Favre waffles more than a those seen in a pancake house. The team moved on, but Brett didn't. The bottom line is that Brett allows them the chance to have that super bowl run now. That's just a fact.
But Brett made his dug his grave and the Pack sent him to the cemetary where the Jets own the plots.
An interesting thing happened. Brett performed exceedingly well in his game with the Jets. In his limited time he was 5 of 6 with a touchdown and no interceptions. Aaron Rodgers, on the other hand, remains the consummate professional moving forward with exceptional potential as GB's front man. His pre-season looks solid so far.
Ted Thompson and Mark Murphy admit that they screwed the pooch with the way they handled the whole FAVRE debacle. Needless to say, I am starting to believe that things are working out for both parties. The Rodger's questions are apparent, but clear.
1) Can he take them all the way to the Super Bowl this year? I doubt it, but that's what Brett could have done so the comparisons, fair or not, we be against that.
2) Can he stay healthy? He's been a poor specimen of health since he's been there. I hope that he can stay durable, but especially this year while his backups learn our system. Manning and Brady are already proving that they don't have the same durability of old number $.
My hope is that Rodgers can ride the horse into the playoffs and make a little noise. I'd love for him to deep in the playoffs and not be rattled. There is something to be said for riding the bench for the first 3 years. We'll see Packer fans...we'll see.
