That’s right. It’s [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink] week, and with that comes the obligatory questions for Green Bay Packers quarterback [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] about Minnesota Vikings quarterback [intlink id=”41″ type=”category”]Brett Favre[/intlink] and their time together in Green Bay.
As has been the case with all of the questions up to this point, Rodgers handles them with class, but really doesn’t have much to say. Last week, Yahoo! Sports Graham Bensinger interviewed Rodgers and asked him about his time with Favre.
The video is online, but unfortunately, they won’t let me embed it, so here’s the summary.
Bensinger asks Rodgers if it was hard for Favre to get close to him since he was brought in to take Favre’s job.
“I’m sure that made for an interesting dynamic, I know in his mind, being a veteran, having played multiple seasons, being the guy for multiple seasons and then having the team draft a guy to eventually take your place. But I can tell you on my side, there was nothing but cheerleading and hard work and I kept my mouth shut, but if there are any other feelings, I think you’d probably have to ask him,” Rodgers said.
Rodgers goes on to say he hasn’t had much contact with Favre since he left the Packers, before Bensinger asks him how surprised he was Favre didn’t return his phone call during the first unretirement saga.
“Not overly surprised,” Rodgers said.
“Once we got into March and the situation that followed, it really was not surprising.”
So there you have it. Aaron Rodgers is not surprised Brett Favre is a dick.
