Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers at the NFL Honors

So, Aaron Rodgers was back to his usual self on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, throwing for 260 yards, three touchdowns and no picks. That’s good news for Brett Favre.

The former Green Bay Packers gunslinger and Minnesota Vikings all-time greatest player was on NFL Network on Sunday morning because, hey, what does it feel like to go back and play your old team? Some guy named Peyton Manning did that on Sunday night.

Favre was talking about that, but he was also heaping praise on Aaron Rodgers. And it turns out, Favre has Rodgers in his fantasy league.

“It is true. And I have 27 minutes left to set my team,” Favre said just after 12:30 p.m. ET. “Aaron is my quarterback. And he’s usually guaranteed to get me about 30 points. First week I think he got me about 45. … He’s been good.”

While those point estimates might be a little off, Favre is obviously trying to continue to endear himself to Green Bay Packers fans. And honestly, he’s doing a fine job of it.

Do we love Favre again? Not really.

Minnesota Vikings.

But hey, keep at it.

Favre also talked about coming back to Lambeau Field while he was with those shitbags.

“After all the years I played football, and had been fortunate enough to play in two Super Bowls, you’d think I wouldn’t be as nervous,” Favre told NFL Network. “That game by far was the most nervous I’d been in my career.”

And of course he went out and tore it up.

If we’re going to remember a Favre game where he tore it up after facing adversity, let’s remember that Raiders game after his old man died. Am I right?

Slingin’ guns. The gunslinger. That motherfucker.

    So this magically removes everything this person did against the Packers and for the Viqueens?

    I do not think so.

    Let’s talk about something important…

    Will the Giants game be “flexed” to a early or late afternoon start?

    It’ll be the first week of flex scheduling and I doubt the NFL will want the Giants on in primetime.

    Great video.

    Funny because I just saw that clip on the NFL Network. Brett looked OLD.

    Good point, slacker, the game should be flexed. However, it is the NY market and the Packers; so that might change their mind.

    pretty nice reception for Peyton Manning in Indy last night. those folks still love them some Peyton. However, I remember some old gunslinger getting his assed booed out of Lambeau Field the last time he showed up in white and purple. not quite the same, huh?

    He’s a legend and you all, including me, are irrelevant fans in the eyes of pro athletes, owners everywhere. Ask yourself honestly, do athletes care about fans or is it just for show? Same for owners who would sell or move your team for their own selfish, personal gains.

      Guess what, pup? Ryan Longwell was booed last week–rightfully so. It is pretty clear that Berty will get booed as well during any proposed homecoming.
      We do matter, particularly in numbers. He made his bed and he can lie in it.
      A Legend? He’s a fucking TRAITOR who did everything in his power to derail the Rodgers and McCarthy era and to give the Vikings their first Lombardi Trophy.
