Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre presented an award together at the “NFL Honors” show Super Bowl weekend, and the current Packers quarterback says the event was a big step in the healing process between Favre and Green Bay. During his radio show on Tuesday, Rodgers said he hopes Packers fans and the organization are ready to reconcile with their former quarterback. “As the face of the franchise now, (it’s) a role that I take very seriously. I have the responsibility and enjoy having the opportunity to represent my team,” Rodgers said on his weekly radio show on 540 ESPN. “I think it’s important to realize that it is time to probably time to move forward.” Rodgers says the producer of the show, with whom he is friends, asked him a week in advance if he would be interested in presenting an award with Favre. He thought about it and decided it would be a good thing to do. “They pitched to me this idea of presenting with Brett, just to see how I would feel about it. And I thought about it for a little bit, but I really felt strongly that it was going to be a good thing for both of us and for Packer Nation,” Rodgers said, via ESPN Milwaukee. Rodgers also confirmed that the “awkward” moment between him and Favre on stage was intentional, and that parts were scripted and others ad-libbed. He and Favre talked over the phone before presenting the award together and seemed to hash things out. “Brett is two years removed from the game. He’ll be in the Packer Hall of Fame. He’ll have his number retired. He will be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the next few years. . . . I thought it was good timing to just let the fans know, let Brett know, let’s move forward. Let’s heal things up and let’s move forward. “I think this was a good thing for our team, good thing for our organization and hopefully Packer fans feel the same way. Things happen and I think it is important to move forward and for the healing process to begin,” said Rodgers. It will be interesting to see if the team and fans follow Rodgers’ lead in welcoming back Favre. Like Rodgers says, it’s probably time to move forward.
