07:04 AM ET 06.14 | Not only has Brett Favre helped repair his relationship with the Packers, but he's also now quite comfortably lauding the work of his former backup. Thursday talking with SiriusXM NFL Radio he reiterated those comments and praised current quarterback Aaron Rodgers. "Aaron has played extremely well, probably even better than anyone anticipated, but I knew he was capable of that and that's why they drafted him," Favre said. "Barring any injury he'll shatter everything I ever did there except for maybe consecutive games. But the guy has been tremendous, great move on their part." Favre also addressed the perception that he and Rodgers didn't get along while teammates in Green Bay, saying they often watched film together and got along great.

In other words, "I need attention; therefore, I'll kiss Green Bay keister, so I can be forgiven and they'll invite me back to retire my number. Pretty please."

"...saying they often watched film together and got along great.

Oh, please, please say the film wasn't Brokeback Mountain...

Does he honestly think that Rodgers will throw more passes, for completions and yards? Probably not.
Does he think Rodgers will stay in the league as long and play in as many consecutive games? Probably not
Rodgers will throw more TD's and fewer INT's and have a better QB Rating.
Will Rodgers ever win another Super Bowl ? That's to hard to predict.

The Favre Self-Redemption Tour will be coming to a town near you this Summer!

What you see from Namath and the Jets today is what we can expect out of Favre and the Packers in the near future. Can't wait.

Sin and redemption...oldest story there is.

Except the INT record. No one's getting near that one.

I respectfully disagree with you. The Packers have never, and will never, conduct business that way. The Packers organization is very cognizant of their image and will never let the organization turn into the circus that the Jets have become.

Namath on the other hand, has become more of a punchline than a person which is sad. He was the perfect face for that franchise, and that city, back in the day. Not anymore. He's become what all ex-players should aspire to NOT becoming upon retirement.
