Quote:
In an interview to air Sunday on the NFL Network, New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre praised Aaron Rodgers' debut performance

"He played extremely well," Favre said about Rodgers. "He played well under a lot of pressure, but I'm not surprised by it. . . . He's got tremendous talent. He watched and learned from me, and that's good and bad."

NFL Network analyst Steve Mariucci interviewed Favre and Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Mariucci asked Tannenbaum how he pitched his organization to Favre.

"We have a lot of good people here," Tannenbaum said he told Favre. "We have a good football team . . . .You'll fit in really well and you'll be hunting in 15 minutes."

The interview is to air at 9 a.m. on the NFL Network show "NFL GameDay Morning."




I'm not sure where to post this. Packers, Brett? EEK! So, we'll post it here and see what happens.

No, he couldn't have said nothing.

Had he said "no comment" or something, the media would have jumped all over it. "Favre declines to talk about successor's success!" and whatnot. Despite what it looks like, he knows what he's doing with the media.

What Brett said was nice, I would not have expected less. What would have been really classy is if he would have called, emailed, etc. Aaron personally to congratulate him. Who knows, maybe Brett did.

Brett showed what a classy guy he is. He holds no grudges and after a few successful seasons in new York, will retire a Packer.

If someone came to Brett and asked "what did ya think of Rodgers first start" and he didn't reply or said no comment. Well, the question was a pin you in the corner. No matter what, Brett had to say something and considering his stats almost mirrored his it would have been kind of dumb to say he did 'fair' or anything lol...

But, one thing I believe about Brett is that he wouldn't sugar coat something about another player. (ie Javon Walker, Sterling Sharpe, etc)

Yes, it does amaze me that some people just can't say something good about Brett Favre.

As for me, I'm rooting for both of them to be successful. Brett Favre is my favorite player, Aaron Rodgers is the QB of my favorite team.

Dare I ask how he TAKING credit for it? He as asked his opinion, he gave it. That's not taking credit.

Feel free to dislike the guy, but don't go there man, be better than that.

To be honest, I don't know why this is such a big deal. So Brett congratulated Aaron. That's all well and good and a classy thing to do.

As far as I'm concerned, the fact that neither have talked to each other since before Brett retired speaks much more volume than any of this media-friendly QB massaging.

Let's face it. Both are professionals and both are bound to applaud the other insomuch as to maintain their professionalism and media persona. But lets not kid ourselves, they're not as great friends as we might think they are.

Engineer - I don't expect them to be.

Let's say you change jobs. You'll have 20 or 30 people that were your friends. Of those, only 2 or 3 you actually keep in touch with. That's how it is.

My guess is that Favre's in touch with Driver and maybe one or two more Packers and that's it.

The NFL is a business. The difference between our jobs and their is theirs is fun to watch, ours isn't.
