That was pretty cool, he seems to have alot of respect for him, I thought it was funny that he said that Rodgers is smarter then he is.

Rodgers is smarter than a lot of people. I wouldn't be surprised if his IQ qualifies him for Mensa. That's always been one of his strengths.

If Brett is going to say: "Hes is smarter than me." Brett should have also said: "He is better than me right now."

I mean as long as you are being honest, why not go all the way with it?

Note the words "RIGHT NOW."

As in, "He's better than me RIGHT NOW."

He is better than Brett right now. Look at the stats. No where in my post is any mention of the H.O.F.

No, he's not better than Favre, RIGHT NOW.

I'd like to see A-Rod on the Jets. Now that would be funny.

Favre on the Packers, on the other hand, would have similar numbers or better.

A-Rod is not better than Favre, nor will he EVER BE.

Is A-Rod going to break every NFL passing record that matters in the book?

I highly doubt it.

I never wrote that he would. Brett is special.

Of course there are records Chico will never break. I do not think Chico has a chance of ending up with the NFL record for most career Interceptions . It is also probable he will not break the record for most completions or T.D.'s

More Superbowl Rings then Brett? I would say yes he will accomplish that, and when it is all done and over with, that is all that really matters to most players that ever played the game.

I agree RP.
But just saying Rodgers will be good is "attacking" favre to some. They think that NO ONE will EVER be good here. ONLY Favre matters to them.
It's really sad, cause reality says either way that Favre would have been gone one way or another within the next one to two seasons. These people have not prepared themselves for the inevitable. They think there just CAN'T be Packer football after Favre. They forget that there WAS Packer football before him, and there will be after him.
I think they would be much more satisfied if they left here and went to a Jets forum, until Favre retires permanently. Here all they will do is complain how Rodgers will never amount to anything.....he just CAN'T!
I REALLY feel sorry for them, as they are missing out on a beautiful start to this season, and to our new QB's career.
They are so busy looking down at their shoes that they are missing the fireworks!

The subject was Brett being classy toward Rodgers.. but again it ended right where every thread with Favre does.. in a winding debate that turns into a speculative argument.

Brett has a body of work that few if anyone has challenged, Rico has 2 very specular starts, and projects well going forward.

Then people wonder why some kindly ask that those debates be held in his very own forum.. something that no other player has. That there is respect.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Sorry Pack93z.....i keep allowing myself to get dragged into it.

Anyone that brings up BF outside of that area you mentioned is just asking for trouble. I love the guy.........but he's NOT here anymore. Aaron Rodgers is "my" guy now.

Nothing to be sorry about.. but it happens every time he is mentioned, no matter the context. Even in a classy move it quickly degrades into the course..

Brett Vs Aaron Vs Mike Vs Ted.. no matter the record or performance.. we as Packer boards can't seem to be content that we are performing well, not perfect, but we are playing winning ball.

It is just that we can't seem to have a conversation even broaching Favre without both the shots or praising taking hold of the thread..

Well after reading alot of posts, alot of people are making Rodgers the MVP of the league already and the SuperBowl MVP. C'mon guys gimmie a break he played 2 games againt 2 very very weak pass defenses. I for one can't stand Rodgers but will admit he has played well, but wait before you crown him as god please. I will say this; in chat during the Lions game i was chuckling because when Rodgers was struggling for that quarter or so alot of people sure turned on him fast, is this what we get to put up with all year? But getting back to the reason of the thread i will say that it was Brett being Brett and saying what he thinks and not whats politically correct like Rodgers does(but then again Brett don't have ARI).

I just want the Packers to win we are 1/2 way to my total win predictions for the year so go Pack

and what is funny about that?

Majority of fans said he sucks, wont last 1st game, will be bad for a while etc...etc...


So why was it okay for them to bash him with even SEEING him play but yet its not okay to have HIGH hopes for him now?

Thats what i was talking about sure seems like people can't keep to the thread was what my post was about. As far as longtime i see you like to just argue with me but oh well. The reason i was laughing was because all the people complaining about him in chat were also the ones saying before that, that he was the next best thing since sliced bread.

Lets just get back to Brett giving his opinion.

Okay we argue cuz we disagree...

What a shocker eh?

Now, to back up your claim..

Show me these people that say
Quote:
Rodgers the MVP of the league already and the Super Bowl MVP.


I will be here waiting..


Also


Could it be those people that are EXCITED he is doing well is because it is shutting up those who disrespected him before he even had a chance to prove himself?

Furthermore..

You know FULL well if one of those 2 past games was just horrible for him, you and all your buddies would be spouting off how he sucks..

But yeah its only one game ya know

They had an interview with Favre on SportsCenter just before, and they asked what he thought about the Packers playing so well without him, and he replied with something to the effect of, "it's only been 2 games, after they've played 16 games you can talk to me." that was the last question of the interview and that was the only one I saw, but just wondering if anyone else saw this.

From the tone of his voice he still seemed kind of bitter, maybe I'm reading too much into it.

I wish Ted Thompson would have traded that 4th rd choice for Moss, I believe it cost us the SB. I wish Ted Thompson would have traded our #1 choice for Clevland's number 2 last year and 1 this year, and I'm surprised he didn't since he values draft choices so much. I wish Brett was still here.

He didn't, he didn't and he's not. It's over. Life goes on.

Hopefully A-Rod becomes a great QB and we win some more Super Bowls.
