Favre, Rodgers, and "Toughness"

Let me preface this by saying Favre is a tough player. He has etched his place in NFL history as not only one of the toughest QBs to play the game but one of the toughest players.  But think about this:

Rodgers injured his shoulder against Tampa in week four.  He sucked it up and played through the pain.  And played well.  I don't recall him ever making his injury an excuse.

Favre has played horribly down the stretch.  All of a sudden he is blaming his poor play on some phantom shoulder injury that nobody ever knew about and that never showed up on a single injury report.

Unlike rain on your wedding day, I think this is ironic.
