Packers legend Brett Favre drops truth on Aaron Rodgers’ elite play in Year 17
Despite all the questions and criticisms he faced in Week 1, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers proved he’s still one of the elites in Week 2 with a sensational performance against the Detroit Lions.
Now, ahead of Green Bay’s Week 3 showdown with the San Francisco 49ers, Packers legend legend Brett Favre broke down Rodgers’ game and explained what makes him elite even at 37 years old and entering Year 17 of his career.
As Favre noted, it all boils down to two things for Rodgers: playmaking and IQ. The reigning NFL MVP can basically throw from any position–making any play possible–while his football IG puts him ahead of his opponents in any situation. According to Favre, it’s just nearly impossible to outsmart him.

Last Monday against the Lions, Aaron Rodgers completed 22 of his 27 passes for 255 yards and four touchdowns–all while avoiding any interception. It was a strong response from the star QB after his horrible game in the opener where he had two interceptions and failed to score a touchdown in the 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Like what Brett Favre said, Rodgers’ ability to throw the ball in any position and make plays remains at an elite level. While some have questioned his desire to continue playing, he more than proved that he can still win at a high level.
Sure enough, Packers fans will be hoping to see the Week 2 version of Rodgers when they play the 49ers on the road. But as Favre said it, Rodgers is smart to know what he needs to do to deliver the W for the Cheeseheads.
