One of the words that you hear coming out of Aaron Rodgers’ mouth recently is the word "legacy," especially in connection to his role as the face of the franchise for the Packers. This past postseason Rodgers mentioned that it was the playoffs that defined a player, and especially a quarterback’s, legacy. On Tuesday in the season finale of his radio broadcast Rodgers’ again talked about his thoughts straying to his legacy as he becomes the longest tenured player on the Packers. This past weekend something happened that may continue to cement his legacy with the Packers and it has nothing to do with the players on the field. As you have probably heard by now, Rodgers and Brett Favre appeared together to present this year’s Comeback Player of the Year award. The two were about as funny as you can be on an awards show if your name isn't Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, or John Stewart. Naturally, this event also triggered one of the longest running debates in Packer history, namely, when should Favre be brought back into the fold? In Tuesday’s Cheese Curds, Kevin highlighted a great article from CheeseheadTV breaking this down once again in light of the awards ceremony. As it turns out the event may be just another example of how much power Aaron Rodgers plays in the Packers’ organization.
