The spring and summer of 2013 should be renamed the Seasons of Favre.
Over the past six months, the seemingly tumultuous relationship between the former quarterback and his former employer has gone from a Defcon 1 state of war to a Defcon 3. Not the huggy kissy relationship some would like the two sides to have, but progress from the declaration of war that was signed when Favre signed with the Vikings in 2009.
This thawing of the ice all began one evening this past February.
The moment Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre stepped on stage together to present an award at the NFL Honors ceremony was the moment many had been waiting for. A meeting of the past and the present, a ceremonial burying of the hatchet between the two players, and a signal that it was time to let the healing begin between Packers fans and Favre.
Rodgers reiterated this sentiment in May when he appeared on the Jim Rome Show, saying the time has come to accept the quarterback from the past back into the present:
BEST OF MAXIM
This letter is awesome, he basically walks himself through the life he has lived, by inspiring himself.
It was a two page letter according to several sites, check the full letter here, it started off in a note form wrote too Aaron.

Almost five years ago, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time was traded to the New York Jets. The divorce between Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers has been well documented. The Packers had Aaron Rodgers as the future of the franchise and were tired of Favre’s constant indecision about retirement. In 2007, Favre and the Packers had...
AND A-RODG AIN'T HAPPY
The sports world was all over the news out of Massachusetts yesterday regarding Aaron Hernandez. The Patriots TE was finally arrested early in the morning, then he was released by the team less than an hour later. Finally, in the afternoon it was revealed Hernandez would be charged with murder and not merely obstruction of justice as had been previously conjectured. NFL stars...
And I don't mean a "Killer of Vikings fans hopes and dreams" or anything like that, I mean a real life, shooty-shooty, stabby-stabby (not like THAT kind of stabbing though ... I don't think), kill kill kill, kind of murderer.
At least according to Jeremy Schaap and ESPN.
ESPN said - ON AIR - in a recent interview, that Aaron Rodgers was likely tied...
2013 Fantasy Football QB Projections Aaron Rodgers Projection: 419 points Aaron Rodgers is my clear-cut #1 Fantasy QB. He doesn’t march up and down the field and accumulate gaudy yardage numbers to the same degree that his elite QB brethren do, but his unparalleled propensity to combine tons of TDs with very few [...]
Why, I mean WHY is nobody talking about Jeremy Butler from Tennessee-Martin? People are talking about OVC wide outs Eric Lora and Walter Powell but are sleeping on this 6’3 wide out that tore up the NCAA last year. He will have Brett Favre’s nephew Dylan throwing him the ball this year, expect huge things from my UTM stud.
Qua Cox from Jackson State is something else. He is...
Live TV is harder than it looks.
It is even harder when you dealing with a serious issue like a NFL player being charged with 1st degree murder, so cut Jeremy Schapp a little slack here in this video provided by The Big Lead.
Aaron Rodgers was not amused.
Not funny ESPN

Some of the biggest news in the NFL in a long time came Wednesday that former New England tight end Aaron Hernandez was being charged with first degree murder eleven. While coving Hernandez’s arraignment, ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap, made a crucial error and confused Hernandez with current Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. “Certainly based on what we heard there is a...
Aaron Hernandez and Aaron Rodgers have very few things in common, but obviously their first name is one of them. Given the fact that Hernandez has been arrested and charged with murder, you can understand why Rodgers would not want to be associated with him an any way. Unfortunately, a slip of the tongue from [...]
Since the 2006 NFL Draft, wide receiver Greg Jennings has been a prolific part of the Green Bay Packers offense. He was one of Brett Favre’s and Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets, including catching Favre’s record breaking career touchdown pass. Now, Jennings has left the Packers for the team he caught that record touchdown against, the [...]

A second possible suspect was arrested in the Odin Lloyd murder investigation. It continues to come as a shock to Jeremy Schaap that Aaron Rodgers isn’t a person of interest.
– Now former teammates are starting to roll over on Aaron Hernandez. Matt Light told the media that he never embraced or believed in anything that Hernandez stood for, which probably has more to do with...
When this crappy blog first started, one of the awesome guys we always got to write about was Visanthe Shiancoe. There was something about his shirtless smiles that always brought us in, but also his dreamy eyes, dog barking GIFs, and so much more. We use to profile as him and do movie reviews during the off-season, because it's the off-season. Like many of our favorite former...
