In Case You Were Wondering, Brett Favre Talked About Aaron Rodgers This Week

Aaron Rodgers is having a sensational season completing 73 percent of his passes and throwing 12 touchdowns to just two interceptions. This is really an extension of what he's been doing the past three years as the Packers starting quarterback, emerging into one of the league's best quarterbacks.

A certain former Packers QB who used to be one of the league's best quarterbacks weighed in on Rodgers' Packers career and, Brett Favre, fresh off his first weekend as an announcer, had a lot of good things to say about Rodgers in an interview with 790 The Zone in Atlanta, including that he's surprised it took Rodgers this long (almost as if there was an aging quarterback in place in Green Bay for Rodgers' first three years).

"I don't think there's any pressure on him now, the talent around him is even better than when I was there. So I'm really kind of surprised it took him so long. In the early part of last year season, it hadn't quite clicked yet and I didn't know it would. I just kind of figured when they hit their stride, they're going to be hard to beat. And that's what happened."

If that's not enough Brett Favre for you, here's the ol' gunslinger reminiscing on how great his career really was.

And at the time, no one including Brett Favre would have thought my career would have ended up the way he did. As a young boy, I was no different, maybe even more dreams and aspirations than the normal Joe. My goals were pretty high. But I have to be honest, they were not as high as they ended up being. So actually, I'm one of the few people who can say that my actual career and performance were greater than my dreams had been.
