Rodgers shrugs off Favre comments, emphasizes team
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers is shrugging off Brett Favre's recent comments. Rodgers would rather talk about the accomplishments of his Packer teammates than dwell on what his predecessor thinks.
In a radio interview with Atlanta's 790 The Zone, Favre made remarks that could be interpreted as a subtle attempt to downplay Rodgers' achievements.
Favre said he wasn't surprised Rodgers won a Super Bowl, saying "the biggest surprise to me would be that he didn't do it sooner." Favre acknowledged Rodgers is "very good," but said he "just kind of fell into a good situation" with a talented team around him.
Asked about Favre's comments Wednesday, Rodgers deflected focus to his teammates, saying, "I'm just going to say I was really proud of our team. It takes 53 guys to win a championship."
