Brett Favre weighs in on Aaron Rodgers' ongoing struggles this season

Published Nov. 15, 2016 1:56 p.m. ET

Aaron Rodgers just can’t seem to catch a break this season. The Green Bay Packers' perennial Pro Bowl quarterback has struggled to find his impeccable touch in 2016, coming into Sunday’s game against the Cowboys ranked near the bottom of the league in many passing categories.

His fortunes didn’t improve Sunday, as he finished 31 of 42 for 294 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

On top of that, Rodgers’ predecessor and Packers legend Brett Favre was on hand for the 30-16 loss. He was honored by the organization at halftime for his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.

Favre shared his thoughts regarding Rodgers’ struggles with the FOX broadcast team during the game.

“It gets to where it’s a mental struggle to just block it out and play,” Favre said. “Aaron Rodgers is a great quarterback. That’s not going to change. Do you have spurts where you don’t play as well? Sure. And then you press. And when you press usually bad things happen.”

Rodgers has now thrown 10 TD passes and four interceptions in 2016, far from the TD-to-interception ratios we’re used to seeing from him. Dating back to last season, the two-time NFL MVP and the Green Bay offense have struggled for a full calendar year. To make matters worse, the 3-2 Packers now have a short week, having to face the Bears on Thursday.
