Madison, Wis. (WXOW) Aaron Rodgers is going through his first coaching change as a starting quarterback.
It’s something Brett Favre went through three times during his career with the Packers.
At 35 years old, Rodgers is of similar age to Favre when Mike McCarthy was hired to replace Mike Sherman.
Rodgers is also learning a new offense as well.
He had a lot of freedom at the line of scrimmage under McCarthy, which might not be the case under new head coach Matt LaFleur.
Favre acknowledges, it will be a balancing act. “Aaron will be fine. I think that’s the thing. I don’t need to give him any advice. He’ll handle it well. The question is how will they handle it with him? Obviously, that’s very important. There’s more to the team than Aaron. We all have to admit 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,” Favre said.
