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.)

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.

GoPack1984 (15m) : Dismal season? I think that's too harsh.
uffda udfa (16m) : Packers should have never been 4-6. Dismal season.
GoPack1984 (19m) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (19m) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic
uffda udfa (25m) : •thanks Shakespeare.
The_Green_Ninja (34m) : Mike at the end of the day is with the team every day and knows what is needed and not needed. Don't be surprised if Mike helps push the cha

uffda udfa (41m) : It won't change until Ted is gone. I await that day with baited breath.
uffda udfa (42m) : Nobody has ever lost a championship game by as big of a margin as us. Title Town revolt.
uffda udfa (42m) : Did I hear wrong or was that the biggest beatdown in championship game history? Nice.
Nonstopdrivel (45m) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (52m) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools
shield4life (1h) : & management
shield4life (1h) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (1h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (1h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (1h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (1h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"

hardrocker950 (2h) : They showed up and played, we crawled in and died...
mojaveson (2h) : Kudos to the Falcons. I hope they win the Super Bowl.
uffda udfa (2h) : All credit to ATL. Not a word about needing to get better.
Zero2Cool (2h) : Ran out of talent, something we didn't have a plethora of on defense (my opinion)
uffda udfa (2h) : MM: Ran out of gas but proud of his guys.
