Amid all the talk about how much freedom Aaron Rodgers will have to call audibles with new head coach Matt LaFleur, Green Bay Packers legend decided to weigh in this weekend according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.com.
As might be expected from another free-wheeling quarterback, former Packers QB Brett Favre clearly sides with Rodgers in the matter.
“Aaron will be fine,” Favre said. “I think that the thing is he needs to remain the same. And I don’t have to give him any advice. You know, he’ll handle it well. The question is, how will they handle it with him. And obviously, that’s very important.
“I mean, there’s more to the team than Aaron but we all have to admit that when he’s playing and playing well, which generally when he’s playing he is playing well, you don’t want to change what’s working. There’s other factors that you have to work on. So I think you let him play his game and not disturb that very much. And it’s going to be interesting to see if that happens.”
Favre won’t be the only one interested to see how it all plays out for Rodgers, LaFleur and the Packers this season.
