Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whose team won the Super Bowl on Sunday night, spent much of the day at Disney World before flying to New York for a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman.

Hmmm. The Super Bowl was on FOX. Disney owns ABC. Letterman is on CBS.

Maybe we can get him on NBCs PFT Live.

Letterman asked Rodgers about his predecessor, who once famously sat in Lettermans guest chair and dropped a strong hint that the First Annual Retirment may not take. Said a smiling Rodgers as to whether Brett Favres what should I do? routine became a distraction, I was the guy who took all the reps during the offseason, and Brett was the guy who took all the reps during the season.

Rodgers also explained that, after high school, he considered focusing on baseball and possibly joining the military before landing a Butte Community College. Then, while Cal coach Jeff Tedford was scouting one of Rodgers teammates, Tedford discovered Rodgers and offered him a scholarship on the drive home.

The extended segment ended with Rodgers throwing a pass to Letterman, who unlike a few of Rodgers teammates didnt drop the ball.

It was real good. Of course, David Letterman normally is. :)

LoL Rodgers did his championship belt during the parade, very modest-like too.

Letterman gave him a WWE belt hah

He was cool and friendly, and he had that little grin. He looked like the cat that swallowed the canary. And as usual, he steered clear of controversy:

Letterman: Are you expecting a call from Brett Favre?

Rodgers: No.

(Thank you Dave for then moving on to the next question. Some context: Rodgers had just mentioned that Bart Starr has become a friend and he was expecting to hear from him.)

On NBC, he can always do Saturday Night Live or Jay Leno.

Were there any parts of the interview with Aaron that were not included in the video above? I fell asleep before he came on.

I was glad ARod got the exposure but wasn't impressed with the interview. Maybe Letterman came off as being a bit of a jerk to me. I know he was trying to be clever and witty. I think he missed.

gbguy20 (3h) : doesn't the top 51 rule only count during the offseason? the way i understand it is everything counts once the season starts.
Smokey (5h) : Please start a thread in "Football Familiarity" and explain the Top 51 Rule, please.

Zero2Cool (14h) : Today's Birthdays: jdlax (115)
Zero2Cool (14h) : 1 year with Aaron Rodgers and having monster stats = GET PAID STRAIGHT CASH HOMIE
DarkaneRules (14h) : I doubt he'll take a deal like that. He wants to get paid like the other WRs have.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I would pay 2.99 million base, then incentives! INCENTIVES!!!
DarkaneRules (14h) : hah, funny how that happens in this sport. See what the market says. I wouldn't pay over 3mil.
Zero2Cool (14h) : What's the guys height Draft profile says six one, everything else says six three

packerfanoutwest (18h) : Burnett signing with the Steelers?
Zero2Cool (19-Mar) : Three years, $30 million could turn into one year, $13 million for Jimmy Graham
DarkaneRules (18-Mar) : to*
DarkaneRules (18-Mar) : Whatever happens, we've got to get Josh move near the LOS where he belongs.
TheKanataThrilla (18-Mar) : Would we consider trying Rollins a S?
gbguy20 (18-Mar) : so what's the deal then, are we to expect to see josh Jones in Morgan Burnetts spot this season? i guess I can't say I'm opposed to the idea.
Smokey (17-Mar) : BG is in no hurry to anounce a new Rodgers deal. Smart !
gbguy20 (17-Mar) : When is Rodgers signing that extension that was supposedly only awaiting Kirk? Typing on a phone makes things tough.
Nonstopdrivel (17-Mar) : That's what I was thinking: I wasn't aware that he was quitting.
Zero2Cool (17-Mar) : Hopefully not for a long time. We need him.
gbguy20 (17-Mar) : when is 12 resigning
Nonstopdrivel (17-Mar) : I have to say I like it, even if it means I have to put up with occasional ads for Maseratis. 😂
Nonstopdrivel (17-Mar) : Interestingly, since I blocked third-party cookies, ads I see tend to relate to the content of the page instead of my most recent Amazon searches.
TheKanataThrilla (17-Mar) : Mathieu to Texans? I thought he wanted to go to a play that was all about winning football games?
hardrocker950 (17-Mar) : Bears already matched
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Bears will certainly match it though. Maybe restructure after year one?
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : but bears got lots of money, didn't think anyone would make the offer
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : good question
