Favre called Romo and suggested to him to play dispite injury...you only learn from the best! Hehe.

It was never Favre's job to help Aaron when he was in Green Bay. It was his job to start at quarterback and play well, which he did. It was up to Aaron to learn from Brett, which he did.

You are wrong. It was absolutely Brett's job to help Aaron while he was in Green Bay. Regardless of his consecutive game streak, he was still one play away from coming off of the field. Helping Aaron be ready to take over for him was more important because it helped the team. That is the main difference between athletes of today who think only about themselves (see Manny "the jerkoff" Ramirez) and athletes from the past who put the team first. Sadly, this behavior has made its way into all levels of sports.


Nowhere in Brett's contract did it say that he had to help a new quarterback if team drafted one and teach him everything. Yes, it is encouraged, and I'm sure Brett did a wonderful job at it, just ask Rodgers himself. I don't know how you can possibly say that Favre wasn't a 'team first' player, that is just ridiculous. He wouldn't be a team captain if he wasn't. He even offered to take a big pay cut so they could try and land Randy Moss last offseason. It was absolutely his job to be a quarterback...not to be a teacher. You don't have to be a teacher to help someone. If you don't think Favre helped Rodgers the past three years then you are sadly misguided.

Anyway, we are getting way off-topic. This thread was suppose to be about Tony Romo.

Favre told me to go to work this morning. He tells me that every morning...I can't get the guy to leave me alone ever since he put me in his "five".

Chris Mortensen just confirmed on Monday Night Countdown that it was Romo who called Favre, not the other way around like everyone thought.

Take that all of you who thought Favre was thinking too much of himself.

Mortenson and ESPN are players' guys...Glazer and Co. are in the organizations' corners. Putting 100% stock in either can be dangerous.
