Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have been making headlines for the last couple months, since the firing of HC Mike McCarthy and drama surrounding Rodgers. Well, Packers legend Brett Farve isn’t so surprised that McCarthy got canned. Winning one Super Bowl isn’t enough when you have “the best player in the game. I just feel they should have won more,” Favre told TMZ … “They were that good.”
The two quarterback’s weren’t always this in support of each other when they were playing together back in 2005. According to a Bleacher Report article, Farve was critical of Rodger’s leadership as a QB. Farve has since back tracked, claiming he now understands why Rodgers was ‘guarded,’ the way he was.
“He’s really at the stage now where I was when he came into Green Bay … and now he sorta sees why I did the things that I did and was more reclusive than younger players.”
Favre says when he left Green Bay back in 2007, “there was a lot of daggers being thrown both ways” — but now that he’s had time to reflect, he knows dagger-throwing isn’t the best way to handle tough situations.
“Any coach that will attempt to coach him has to tread lightly because you don’t want to take away what he does so well — which is a lot of good things — and handcuff him.”
Good luck to new coach Matt LaFleur and the Green Bay Packers.
