Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made his grand return to Twitter on Tuesday and decided to take some fan questions.
Rodgers, who refrains from using social media during the season, chose to answer some pretty odd questions. He also chose to answer one about what he thinks of the Packers playing in the Hall of Fame game, which was announced earlier on Tuesday.
Is Rodgers really stoked?
No, he isn’t.
He told everyone exactly how he felt about playing a fifth preseason game in September.
“We hope we don’t get it,” Rodgers said. “But we know it’s going to be tough because No. 4 is going to be going in.”
The reference, of course, was to Brett Favre. Favre is ultimately why the Packers will be playing in the Hall of Fame game.
The NFL chooses the participants in the game based upon the members of the Hall of Fame class. With Favre and two former Indianapolis Colts going into the Hall this year, there will be plenty of fans of both teams in Canton for the ceremony.
That made the match-up a no-brainer for the league.
Some of those fans will surely stick around until Sunday evening to watch some of their team’s third- and fourth-stringers in game action.
