Brett Favre’s Relationship With Aaron Rodgers Has Taken A Surprising Turn
Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers are reportedly now friends after years of cold relations between the two NFL stars.
It’s not a secret at all that Rodgers and Favre didn’t get along during their time together in Green Bay, and the relationship didn’t get better when the Hall of Fame quarterback left town.
Favre famously stated that getting Rodgers ready to play wasn’t part of his contract. That should tell you all you need to know about their relationship at the time. (SLIDESHOW: These Sexy Women Love Football)
Well, things seem to have turned around. CBS wrote the following on their relationship today:
Not only are Favre and Rodgers now friends, but the Ol’ Gunslinger says that Rodgers now understands why Favre acted the way he did all those years ago. During the interview, Favre then revealed that he actually had a conversation with Rodgers last week about the nature of his 2005 quote and the Packers’ current quarterback, who turns 35 in December, now gets what Favre was going through at the time.
“He said, ‘I get it now. I get what you were saying or how you carried yourself,'” Favre said. “There is no clause that says, ‘Hey, you groom the next guy who’s going to take your job or else.’ That doesn’t work that way.”
I might hate the Packers, but I’ve always had a lot of respect for Favre. I don’t know exactly why that is. Lions fans aren’t supposed to ever like any Packers.
There’s just something about Favre that makes you think he’s a good dude at the end of the day. I wouldn’t say the exact same thing about Rodgers. He always rubbed me the wrong way, and I’ve heard the same from a lot of people back in Wisconsin.
That’s why I don’t think anybody in Green Bay and my home state really criticized Favre for the way the whole falling out happened. Favre always seemed like a guy you wanted in the trenches with you. Rodgers seemed like a guy you’d move down the line if you found him standing next to you.
I’m glad, however, these two men have worked it out. Life is way too short to let beef carry out for a long time. These two men are legends in Green Bay, and should always be remembered that way among the fans.
