Morning Buzz: Packers flying under the radar
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Brett Favre’s recent radio interview where he spoke about a recent conversation he had with Aaron Rodgers.
Favre spoke about his current relationship with Rodgers and he mentioned that the two spoke just last week.
“We talked about that,” said Favre, referencing the not-mentoring-Rodgers quote. “He said, ‘I get it now. I get what you were saying, or how you carried yourself.’”
Favre continued “There is no clause that says ‘You groom the next guy who’s going to take your job, or else.’ It doesn’t work that way.”
Another shared experience between the two? Watching your friends leave the team during a long career.
“You see a lot of guys come and go. You look around and I’m the last man standing," Favre said. "Very few guys get to experience that because of the longevity standpoint.”
Apparently, Rodgers is a tough guy to get a hold of as well.
“I told Aaron, if I do anything, I’m going to get you a phone that works," Favre said. "That guy may be the worst at returning messages.”
