Troy Aikman owns a lifetime record of 9-1 against the Packers, but apparently he hasn't hammered Brett Favre over his career. The ex-QB and FOX analyst was on the 2 Live Stews radio show today to talk all things NFL, but he had some interesting things to say about Aaron Rodgers and the flip-flopping Brett Favre....
"This has been going on for over a decade. Going into '96, the Super Bowl that he won. He talked about it prior to that game that if he won that Super Bowl he may in fact retire. And since that time it's been twelve years now that we've talking about whether or not Brett's going to retire.Interesting take and pretty spot on. I definitely don't agree with the notion that Aaron Rodgers should be the starter, but I can't believe I forgot how long Favre has been contemplating leaving the game. I was in Highschool in 1996?! Good lord. Someone seriously needs to Nancy Kerrigan this guy so we can all move on....including him.
He [Aaron Rodgers] has been there all of season, they drafted him in the first round, they told him that he was going to be a starter this year. And I think you risk losing him for the rest of his career, however short that maybe with Packers, to get one more season out of Brett Favre. Do you go on to win the Super Bowl? Well maybe you do, but they could very easily go 4 and 12 as well."
