Friday Cheese Curds: Brett Favre weighs in on the Aaron Rodgers/Jordan Love situation

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports The two quarterbacks now share a similar experience, and the older one spoke this week about how his former protege may be feeling in the wake of the Packers drafting a new first-round QB. It was only a matter of time. Let’s face it: Brett Favre wasn’t going to stay quiet for very long about the parallels between his experience 15 years ago and his successor, Aaron Rodgers, heading down a similar path. The Green Bay Packers’ selection of Jordan Love in the first round of last week’s 2020 NFL Draft is not the end of the book on Rodgers, but it at least...

Thursday Cheese Curds: What were the Packers thinking last weekend?

Photo by George Walker/Icon Sportswire via National writers are taking their shot at figuring out what the Packers were doing during the 2020 NFL Draft. The Green Bay Packers sent the draft world into varying degrees of shock last Thursday, drafting Jordan Love 26th overall. How could they do it? What were they thinking? What does it all mean? Things didn’t get any simpler in the next two rounds, with the Packers adding a running back and a tight end/fullback/H-back in the third. Why did they take those players then? How will they contribute? Will they ever? A week later, we don’t...

It’s funny how history repeats itself. Back in 2005, the Green Bay Packers drafted a young quarterback by the name of Aaron Rodgers with the 24th overall pick in spite of the fact that 35-year-old Brett Favre was still under center at the time.
