If there is anyone who is an expert on the subject of controversy with his continuity as quarterback of the Green Bay Packers during the offseason it is Hall of Famer Brett Favre, who justly was Aaron Rodgers‘ predecessor at the helm of the home team’s offense at Lambeau Field.
Favre believes Rodgers will play for another team
So when Favre openly shared his thoughts on “A-Rod’s” future with the Packers after a painful 13-10 Divisional Round exit at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, it’s a perspective to consider.
“Where do the Packers go from here? That’s a good question,” Favre said. “I think we may have seen the last of Aaron in Green Bay. I don’t know that for certain, it’s just a gut [feeling]. He may try his hand somewhere else.”
Rodgers replaced Favre in Green Bay
After a couple of years with threats of Favre’s retirement in Green Bay, the team finally decided to give Rodgers a chance in the 2008 season, when the #4 wanted to return, his job was taken and he had to migrate a year to the New York Jets to finish his career as a member of the Minnesota Vikings.
“It’s not uncommon for a guy to switch teams after a long productive career somewhere else,” Favre said. “My advice would be, if your gut is telling you, ‘I want to try my hand somewhere else. It’s kind of gotten stale here or stagnant or numb or whatever the feeling is, then go give it a try.'”
Will Rodgers play for the Broncos?
Rodgers said this week that he needed a little time to make a decision regarding his future and the news that the Denver Broncos signed Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as head coach could be a sign that he is right in his assessment of Favre.
We will have to wait to know the outcome of this novel.
