I also believe that great players make for bad coaches (Dikta being the possible exception).
Seemed like Aron was ready to play when it was his turn and I'm sure Brett has helped him over the years.

Rodgers being ready to play had a whole lot more to do with Mike McCarthy than Favre. I don't think Favre was interested in anyone but himself:

Rodgers says he's ready to lead Packers - NFL - ESPN
From this link it looks like it was more of Rodgers helping Favre than the other way around.


This isn't related to your post but just thought I'd throw it out there. Here's a quote from Fran Tarkenton about Favre: Tarkenton added that I think he has been a great flamboyant quarterback, but he has made more stupid plays than any great quarterback that Ive ever seen."

TJ would have gotten his ass handed to him this year given the drop off of their O-line and run game.

If you think TJ could have held a candle to the numbers Favre put up this year, you were watching a different QB than I was last year. If folks want to dog on Favre for his arrogance/selfishness/dumb ints, that fine, but I give props when a guy plays lights out, and that is what Favre did this year. +24 TD ratio, 107 rating...I mean c'mon, dude was a gamer this year.

Gus Frerotte looked like an all pro compared to Tarvis.

Re: brett favre

imo favre helped rodgers be the player he is. you follow someone like favre you gotta pick up on his leadership and how he carries himself. no one here really knows what went on and i think rodgers just doesn't appreciate what he learned behind a legend..

What makes you think Rodgers doesn't appreciate the help?

The NFL and the Vikes got all the mileage out of this thing they could muster...lets face it without some hack appeals judge making an obstructionist decision about the Williams... Favre never comes back...

Didn't the great one say it was not his job to teach Rodgers when the Pack drafted Rodgers? What was better than the Vikes getting beat was it was Bretts bad throw.

Re: brett favre

I was on a work trip the week before the game and there were a couple of Favre acolytes there (one claimed to be a Bears fan?). I told them that he was way to careless with the ball in big games and that he'd throw a pick and cost them the game as usual. Just shows how much the media rides his jock that they all thought I was crazy.

I didn't need a crystal ball... Brett's 2 pick game was about par for the course.

Fun facts:

If you count only QBs with 10 or more playoff games, Brett is 17th in winning percentage (he's barely above .500). Lower your games played threshold for inclusion and he drops lower.

Brett holds both the career playoff and regular season INT records.

Brett averages over 2 INTs/game in the playoffs. This has been slightly more pronounced since the two Super Bowl appearances.

Summary:

If you want to pick a guy to win a playoff game, he should not be mentioned in the same breath as Brady, Bradshaw, Aikman, Montana, Warner, Elway, Staubach.

If you want to have a guy that will always be around, always start, always be exciting, and almost always get you to the playoffs he's your guy.

Great QB, great fun to watch, definitely an iron man, but not anywhere near top 5 all time.
