Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre told SirirusXM NFL Radio that he believes Aaron Rodgers will shatter his records. “Aaron has played extremely well, probably even better than anyone anticipated, but I knew he was capable of that and that’s why they drafted him,” Favre said, via NFL.com. “Barring any injury he’ll shatter everything I ever did there except for maybe consecutive games. But the guy has been tremendous, great move on their part.” Favre says he got along just fine with Rodgers in Green Bay. “There were no problems between Aaron and I,” Favre said. “I had no problem with him becoming the next quarterback for the Packers. It was bound to happen at some point. I have no problems with the success that he’s had. In fact, I’m proud of him.” We obviously don’t know how longer Rodgers’ career will last, but he does have a chance at overtaking Favre’s records. Need NFL Tickets?
