Aaron Rodgers Takes High Road in Response to Brett Favre
Earlier in the week, former Packers quarterback Brett Favre went on the radio for a rare interview. Favre, who now says his comments were misinterpreted, gave current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers a few backhanded compliments. Despite calling Rodgers bright and a tremendous talent, Favre said he was surprised it took Rodgers so long to win a Super Bowl.
It’s pretty childish of Favre to play like he doesn’t know why people took his comments the way they did. If Favre wanted to praise Rodgers and the Packers, he could have. Instead, his praise was more in the form of several “yeah, but …” comments. Leave it to Rodgers, ever the professional, to take the high road when asked for a response to Favre.
“You know what, I’m just, the only thing I want to say is I’m just really proud of our guys and what our team did last season. It was a great accomplishment. It took all 53 of those guys and obviously it got the attention of a lot of people and we’re proud of the fact that we achieved the ultimate goal as a team.”
Rodgers refused to engage in a public battle. Instead, he keeps quiet and chooses to let his play on the field talk for him. And when he plays at the level he does, he doesn’t need to say anything; he has people like me, who will tell you that Rodgers is better than Favre ever was with the Packers.
