In the latest episode of the 'Brett Favre is Trying to Stay Relevant' soap opera, the Hall-of-Fame signal caller is opening his mouth on a topic he should probably just stay out of.

As we await Week 1 of the 2019 NFL regular season, cheeseheads in Green Bay are waiting to see what kind of relationship Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur will develop. With some tension already arising over Rodgers' freedom in the new offense, many out there are worried. This includes Favre.

"The question is, how will they handle it with him," Favre said via NFL.com. "And obviously, that's very important. I mean, there's more to the team than Aaron, but we all have to admit that when he's playing and playing well, which generally when he's playing he is playing well, you don't want to change what's working. There's other factors that you have to work on."

Thanks for the cutting-edge analysis, Brett. While it's safe to agree no one should get in Rodgers' way when he's firing the rock like the stud he is, this isn't his team, it's LaFleur's. The pair will figure out the offense together and move forward with what's best for the team. Quite frankly, they don't need Favre trying to pick sides here or anything.

How about we let Matt LaFleur be Matt LaFleur? The man hasn't even coached a game for the Packers yet and people are already telling him how to do his job. He was hired for a reason. Let him do his thing.
