The quarterback or the receiver, who has more to lose after this separation?
One of the most prolific duos in the NFL broke up this year. With the Packers, Davante Adams (WR, Raiders) has racked up 2,927 yards and 29 touchdowns over the past two seasons, performances which earned him two consecutive All-Pro selections while Aaron Rodgers (QB, Packers) took control twice on the title of MVP. Legend of the CheeseHeads, Brett Favre (ex-QB) thinks the separation of the two stars will have consequences. Although their individual talent should keep them at the top of the league, Favre believes Adams will miss his favorite Wisconsin quarterback.
“No disrespect for Davante. I think Davante will help Derek Carr improve, and over time they will be a dynamic duo. Afterwards, will it be at the level of the duo between Aaron and Davante?,” Favre told TMZ Sports. “I think Derek Carr is a really good quarterback, but he’s still not comparable to Aaron. He may never be, always without wanting to offend her. But I think Davante owes a lot of gratitude to Aaron, and being drafted by the Packers. »
“That’s not to say he’s not a great player. He’s an amazing player, and we’ll see that with Las Vegas. But it’s hard to change, especially after such a prolific pitcher in Aaron Rodgers. I will be amazed if he finds the same results this year. That’s not to say he can’t, but I’d be surprised. »
As for Rodgers in Green Bay, the former skirmisher wants to be more optimistic.
” It will be alright. It’s hard to replace a great player like Davante Adams. It’s hard to replace Aaron Rodgers. We are not replacing these players. You put someone on, and you hope the others pull the load while you wait for that person to find their own way. Aaron is too good. Like Tom Brady who has succeeded each season in systematically tearing his opponents apart with what he had. It didn’t matter. And so will Aaron. »
