ESPN's Ed Werder sat down for an exclusive interview with Brett Favre at the New York Jets' sparkling new headquarters in Florham Park, N.J., for the next edition of the "Sunday Conversation." The Jets will visit the San Diego Chargers on Monday night.

Many of the topics discussed have been covered by the New York media in news conference. But Favre's answers in a one-on-one setting seem to have a little more bite.

Here are a couple of samplings ...

On the Jets' decision last Sunday to run three straight times unsuccessfully on first and goal from the Patriots 3-yard-line and settling for a field goal:
[ul]We should've scored. We had chances. If you go back and break that film down and look at those three plays, it shouldn't have gotten to the third one. It was something that -- I give them credit -- we missed a block here or and angle here.[/ul]

There's no guarantees throwing. As I told Eric [Mangini] and told anyone who would listen: Had we thrown it, we would've scored. That's just the confidence I have.

On the early success of the Green Bay Packers with Aaron Rodgers:
[ul]I've had 16 pretty good years there. Two games or a season is not going to, you know ... When they have 16 good ones, they can call me.[/ul]


I think Brett is getting sick of hearing about Aaron.

I have to agree. I am almost feeling sorry for the guy. He's in a no win situation. If asked about the Packers an he declines commenting, he looks bad or will be perceived that way and if he says something positive some will say he's not focusing on his current team.

I think your suggestion is best. Just politely ask "could we field questions about my current team?"

Oh, you mean like how he always answered questions about retirement by saying that he intended to keep playing as long as he was healthy, and could we talk about the team now?

Er, wait a minute. He didn't do that, did he? No, he didn't. For SIX YEARS he entertained the press with every little stray thought that passed through his head about retirement. A lot of people interpreted this as "Just Brett being honest and telling it like it is." But that's not what it was. It was Brett getting unlimited media attention and building his myth.

So now, we get to sit back and watch the show again, except this time it's a little different. The reporters aren't asking him about retirement, they're asking him about the Packers. And Brett is going to entertain them. Let's just be thankful that this show has moved to another city, and let's hope our own players don't respond to any of it. What a jackass this guy has turned out to be.

The irony is that the story this season was supposed to be Aaron Rodgers having to deal with Brett Favre comparisons. Instead, it's Brett Favre having to deal with Aaron Rodgers comparisons. I don't feel sorry for Favre at all. This beast is entirely of his own making. You live by the sword, you die by the sword.

Very most excellent observation. Who'd a thunk two months ago that this would be the case?

I didn't. I was in Rodgers corner, cuz he's a Packer, but I didn't expect this.

I agree, and every interview I've seen since he's joined the Jets makes me think he ain't a happy camper. He just seems different.

i would have to agree..

He is still the same BF making jokes and such, but maybe he really is bitter and it comes out once and a while in interviews?

I personally think Brett is happy where he is, you can see it on the field.

I also dont mind when Favre talks about anything and everything including Aaron or the Packers.

There is no comparisons between Rodgers and Favre IMO, when Rodgers has played for 16 years and goes out on the field hurt then we will talk. Favre is the toughest and always will be. But to compare him to Rodgers is ridiculous IMO.

Rodgers is having a great year so far I commend him for that, but he has learned from the best to (Favre).

Lets compare after Rodgers has played 17 years for the league. :)
