He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Aaron Rodgers creating the illusion of height?

We take a break from the Packers' Increasingly Lost Offseason to bring you Aaron Rodgers' thoughts on a few subjects of local interest, as told to SI.com's Peter King.

 

First, he addressed Brett Favre, whom he replaced in Green Bay, then played against, then mended fences with an an NFL awards show: "I definitely had trepidation going in. I just didn’t know how he was going to be. But we talked on the phone the night before, and it was good to talk to him. I knew the second we hung up that it was going to be a good thing. He was joking around, I was joking around. We were remembering some funny old stories, and I just knew that we were both in the right spot mentally. I was backstage with him, Joe Montana and the Mannings—Peyton, Eli and Archie. And a bunch of other people walked in and out, but I got a really sweet pic from that night with Peyton, me and Brett. We’ve talked a few times since, and texted. We’re good. I’m very happy about it."

Next, on the loquacious new Viking, Greg Jennings, who has taken some shots at his former teammate: “People taking shots at me who aren’t relevant to this team and to this locker room doesn’t mean a whole lot to me. Those comments do wash over with me without a reaction, because they don’t matter.”

And finally, on tough individual opponents: “Jared Allen is probably the best pass rusher I face, but the two guys starting to give us real issues are Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. Really good players. Bright futures.”

You can read it all right here -- most of it good stuff that reminds us we can never really hate Rodgers.
