Brett Favre is apparently an agent of chaos. When he watches the Dark Knight, he probably roots for Heath Ledger.
How do we know this? Because during an appearance on Complex’s Load Management podcast, Favre suggested he’d love to see Aaron Rodgers play for the Bears.
One of the podcast’s hosts, “Chopz” suggests the sickening scenario to Favre who laughed at the thought.
“I would love to love to see that,” Favre said. “Just from the standpoint of, we (Rodgers and Favre) have killed the Bears collectively. I mean, Bear fans would probably be like, ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I am so glad Aaron Rodgers is on my team.
“He instantly makes you a contender.”
Talk about an existential crisis for Bears fans. Flipping a switch and rooting for a guy that has caused so much misery in Chicago.
But it’s not outside the realm of reason as Rodgers has already hinted he believes his Packers career is coming to a close, and the Bears are in the midst of a quarterback competition.
Rodgers is 18-5 against the Bears, with 5,562 passing yards, 47 passing touchdowns and only 10 interceptions. He has more passing yards and touchdowns against the Bears than any other team in the league.
Rodgers has also mounted several crushing comebacks against the Bears. He returned from injury to erase a 17-0 halftime deficit to win 24-23 in Week 1 of the Bears’ centennial season. He ripped away an NFC North title-- and a playoff spot-- in 2013 with less than a minute left on the clock. And of course, he beat the Bears in Week 17 of the 2010-11 season to lock up the final playoff spot for the Packers, and then beat the Bears again in the NFC Championship game.
In all, Rodgers has led six 4th-quarter drives to beat the Bears. Would Chicagoans be able to forgive and forget all that if he ever switched the “G” on his helmet to a “C?”
