When it comes to trying to fill Brett Favre's shoes, Aaron Rodgers hasn't gotten off on the right foot -- with the cheeseheads, at least.It's been assumed for three years that Rodgers would ascend to the quarterback throne when Favre retired, which Favre did during the offseason. But Rodgers did not endear himself to Packers fans recently when, in an interview with Sports Illustrated, he said, "I don't feel I need to sell myself to the fans. They need to get on board now or keep their mouths shut." Later, Rodgers made amends when addressing his remarks in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I do care deeply about the fans and I think anybody who has been to training camp and sees I'm a lot of times the last one out signing autographs sees I care about the fans, I care about their opinions," Rodgers told the Journal-Sentinel. "Everybody wants the fans to care for them and to pull for them and I am no different. "The biggest disappointment in this whole thing is if anybody is offended by the stuff I say, because I think that my track record pretty much speaks for itself in the way I feel about the fans. I don't want the wrong message to come out of this."
