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.''
