Favre Tries To Clear Up Rodgers Controversy, Fails
[intlink id=”41″ type=”category”]Brett Favre[/intlink] popped his head back into the room today to tell us he didn’t say anything wrong when discussing [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] and the Green Bay Packers earlier this week.
If you recall, Favre said he was surprised Rodgers didn’t win a Super Bowl sooner and that he fell into the situation he’s in with the Packers.
Although Favre also said Rodgers is bright and talented, pretty much everyone interpreted Favre’s other remarks as a dig at the Packers current quarterback.
Well, Favre thought he had to defend himself.
“Nothing, for the most part, surprises me anymore,” the league’s all-time leading passer said from his home in Hattiesburg, Miss. “But I have to admit (the reaction to) this one surprised me.”
“It is very (infrequent) when I do interviews,” Favre said. “I was very gracious and complimentary of the Packers and Aaron Rodgers.”
In true Favre style, you’ll notice he didn’t just do the simple thing and say, “Hey, in no way were my comments meant to be anything but complimentary to Aaron. I’m sorry if they were interpreted any other way.”
You see, Favre’s ego won’t let him do that. And so we get the aww shucks, I don’t know what all the fuss is about attitude.
