btw your response was pretty good when questioned about it.


VSN? lol

I said it for the record. And I stand by it. It doesn't mean that I'm dissing Favre or anything. Favre was great. But I never felt this good about Brett as I do with Aaron. The guy has serious moxy.


correct...i am The Buddha over there.

I'm as big a fan of Aaron Rodgers as anyone, but nothing he's accomplished comes remotely close to Favre's amazing run of 1995-1998. He has a long ways to go before I'll even think of saying he looks better than Favre.

Now does the Rodgers of today look better than the Favre of today? Unquestionably. But that's a different question entirely.

I think he will be close when he retires (barring injury). I think of it like comparing Joe Montana to Steve Young. Both Hall of Fame, both great.

I would say that this is just another thread started to continue the argument that should have been buried by now seeing that the 2009 season is less than 2 weeks away.

I'll give my answer just to play along.
Aaron Rodgers is looking real good, it is still pre-season, let's hope he stays as sharp as he is right now.

Saying that, lets see him do it for a whole season, then 2 , then 5, then 10, then 15.
I'm tired of reading about all the excuses for losing last year.

THIS IS A TEAM GAME, YOU WIN AS A TEAM YOU LOSE AS A TEAM!!!!

Like it or not history says as of this moment Aaron Rodgers is 6-10 in his career as the starting qb of The Packers.

Now I am hoping this is going to turn around starting this year. But I am not going to start comparing Aaron Rodgers to BF, like some of you, just because you are pissed off at Brett, because he is playing for The Viqueens.

I am not happy about that but it is what it is, and some of you have just got to get over it and move on.

I think this could be a very special year for The Pack, what's the old saying?
Enjoy the journey gentleman, if you do and you reach your destination it will have been a much sweeter ride.

EOM!!!!!
Enjoy the ride – It kicks and just keeps on kickin’.

as if favre as a viking isn't a slap in the face to all of us.

I really don't understand how that statement would be insulting favre though.

Whoever wrote Rodgers looks better than Favre ever did didn't see the game against the Raiders the night after Favre's dad died. Do you guys not remember that!?

Listen, I am as pissed about Favre as anyone. I watched him out there in a Vikings uniform tonight and my only reaction is that he looks completely stupid. That's it, he just looks stupid with those f*cking horns on his head. However we're talking about a 3 time MVP, a man who was in the running for a 4th MVP more than once in his career and a man to whom Packer fans owe a great amount of gratitude for a lot of good years after about 30 terrible ones.

Rodgers looks smoking hot. A few of the plays from the Cardinals game the other night make me giggle like a school girl I am so excited. That being said, I'm not about to label him better than Favre ever was...

Steve Young looked pretty good in San Francisco after Montana left, but Montana was still Montana. Maybe Rodgers will eclipse Favre someday, but not today, and not this year. Give it some f*cking time.

Lets pretend Aaron himself stated this.. I would say his alligator mouth is overloading his hummingbird ass.

Point is.. Aaron has a way to go to be sniffing at the prime years of Favre..

Don't mistake that for a lack of support or confidence in Rodgers.. just he is on the right road.. just not on that HOF highway yet.

Some of the throws Aaron made the other night.. they reminded me of a younger Brett.. that is props enough.

BTW to be fair.. we locked down this type of thread the other night.. so this one shall be as well. We have so many positive things to talk about.. we don't need a second coming of the Favre wars...
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.
