Favre throws kind words at Packers successor, Rodgers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - -

Brett Favre says he was never as good as the man who replaced him at quarterback for the Green Bay Packers.

Favre says that Aaron Rodgers will break all of his good records, but that he'll hang on to his bad ones.

Favre lauded Rodgers while speaking at a charity event Thursday. He was scheduled to have his name and retired No. 4 unveiled on the facade at Lambeau Stadium at halftime of the Bears-Packers game Thursday night.

Another former Packers quarterback, Bart Starr, also was scheduled to attend the game.

The ceremony is the culmination of a season-long reconciliation between Favre and the organization following a messy split.

Rodgers replaced Favre as the starter in 2008.
