GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – On the list of Aaron Rodgers’
accomplishments in three seasons as the Green Bay Packers’ starting
quarterback, one stands out: He made Brett Favre an afterthought in
Green Bay.
     Going into Sunday’s NFC championship game against the rival
Bears in Chicago, Rodgers is the undisputed new face of the

e-mail to ESPN, but Rodgers isn’t particularly interested in
talking about his predecessor. Rodgers’ response to Favre’s
comments was positive but brief, saying it’s “quite an honor.”
