Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers are both legendary quarterbacks for the Green Bay Packers in their own right, but Rodgers now has a leg-up on the quarterback he once replaced.

On Christmas day against the Browns, Rodgers broke Favre’s Green Bay record of 442 touchdown passes thrown. Rodgers threw number 443 late in the first quarter of the game and finished the game with 445.

He’ll undoubtedly add to that number over the rest of this season and possibly into the future, but Favre is looking for his understudy to accomplish an even bigger goal for the Packers.

It was 3rd-and-5 from the Cleveland 11. The Packers were gifted great field position thanks to a Baker Mayfield interception just a few players earlier (his first of four picks thrown) and were looking to cash in with their first score of the game.

Facing a collapsing pocket and a pretty good Cleveland pass rush, Rodgers took a three-step drop and threw a dart out to Allen Lazard in the flats. Lazard turned upfield, took a few steps, and dove for the pylon at the front corner of the endzone.

Touchdown, Packers. It was No. 443 for Rodgers.

After the initial celebration and jubilee, the Lambeau Field scoreboard lit up to show a video of Favre, who congratulated his former backup on breaking his record.

“I have one request. Go get us another Super Bowl,” Favre said as the Lambeau Field crowd roared.

Some consider it one of the great travesties in sports. Others, more critical of the organization, view it as malfeasance on the part of Green Bay’s front office.

Either way, the Packers have boasted two of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game in Favre and Rodgers. One is in the Hall of Fame, and the other will be in it once he hangs up his cleats.

It’s truly incredible when you think about it. Replacing a Hall of Fame quarterback is tough enough, but that’s precisely what the Packers were able to do by replacing No. 4 with No. 12. The fact that there was no gap between the two legendary quarterbacks makes it even more impressive. The Packers had to wait a number of years between the era of Bart Starr and Favre. Rodgers sat for three seasons behind Favre and then took over for him in season four and immediately had great success. Favre was shipped off to the New York Jets and ultimately signed with the Minnesota Vikings, but we don’t talk about that dark period of time.

Two of the greatest ever to do it, but the Packers have only hoisted the Lombardi twice between the two of them. Favre made two Super Bowls, beating the Patriots in Super Bowl 31 while losing to John Elway and the Broncos in Super Bowl 32.

For his part, Rodgers led the Packers to a win over the Steelers in Super Bowl 45, but he and the Pack haven’t been back to the big game since.

Rodgers has been to four NFC Championship games since that Super Bowl season, but he hasn’t gotten the Packers over the hump.

Can Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers make the Super Bowl this season?

The Packers should be considered the favorite to win it all as the playoffs quickly approach. After beating Cleveland, they’re 12-3 and closing in on clinching the 1st overall seed in the NFC playoffs.

Rodgers is at the peak of his powers and is in the running for a second-straight MVP award and his fourth overall. He also has elite talent around him. Davante Adams is the best wide receiver in football and the Packers have an incredible one-two punch at running back in the duo of Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon.

The Packers do have some things to button up on defense, but they’re one of the most opportunistic units in the NFL and feature play-makers like Rashan Gary, Preston Smith, Rasul Douglas, and Kenny Clark.

If the Packers can get back injured Pro Bowlers David Bakhtiari (left tackle) or Jaire Alexander (cornerback), lookout. They’ll be nearly unbeatable.

Rodgers has all the right players around him to finally win another Super Bowl, and he has one of the best young coaches in the game on his sideline in Matt LaFleur.

This is a team that plays in “Title Town, USA.” The trophy they’re fighting for is named after their legendary coach, Vince Lombardi. Individual awards and records are excellent, but they pale in comparison to what another Super Bowl win would mean for Rodgers, Green Bay, and even Favre.

Rodgers knows it. Apparently, Favre knows it.

The Packers are talking the talk as the playoffs quickly approach. Now they just need to walk the walk.

Nothing short of another Lombardi will do for Favre, Rodgers, and the Packers.

Deontay Wilder has been a professional boxer since his debut back in November 2008. He has been boxing consistently for over 15 years straight now in the pro ranks, earning more and more money as his career has progressed up to world level.

The 1985-born boxing superstar is one of the most fearsome punchers the sport of boxing has ever seen. Deontay Wilder’s boxing record consists of 43 wins – 42 of which have come via knockout. The only man to go the distance with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ was Bermane Stiverne, who Wilder then knocked out in a round in their rematch.

As of December 2023, it is reported that Deontay Wilder’s net worth is somewhere in the region of $30 million (source: Celebrity Net Worth).

Of course, given the fact the Alabama man is supremely wealthy, he likes his fair share of luxury items too. Wilder has acquired real estate, expensive jewelry, flashy cars and various other assets that have contributed to his riches.

Wilder went into the fight as the marginal favorite with the best offshore sportsbooks, given that he was still the reigning champion following his draw with Fury 14 months prior. Despite getting conclusively knocked out in Round 7 of the fight, this still remains the biggest purse of Wilder’s career to date.

Deontay Wilder has reportedly earned a total sum of around $95 million in his professional boxing career from his debut up to now. This is right up there with the likes of heavyweight rivals Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, and is more than the likes of Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis and Terence Crawford.

The 2008 Beijing Olympic Bronze Medallist has been earnings even figure purses ever since he became world heavyweight champion back in January 2015.

Deontay Wilder Endorsements & Sponsorship

Although the vast majority of Deontay Wilder’s earnings comes from prize fighting, he also earns an extremely lucrative sum of money outside of the ring. These vast endorsement deals from outside of the ring are a big player in boosting Wilder’s net worth and salary.

The 1985-born boxing phenom’s biggest endorsement deal as of today is his partnership with Everlast. Wilder has shown great loyalty to Everlast for several years during his boxing career, and still sports their boxing gear to this day. He also regularly uses Everlast boxing gloves in the ring for his world title fights, as well as during training camps.

Some of Deontay Wilder’s other endorsements include his partnerships with PureKana CBD, Raising Cane’s and IHC Crypto. There is not much else known about Wilder’s endorsements and sponsors outside of his career as a boxer.

All in all, Deontay Wilder’s various sponsorships certainly help boost his net worth. Per Forbes, he reportedly earns an estimated $500,000 per annum through endorsements. Ultimately though it is punching people in the face for a living that pays ‘The Bronze Bomber’ the most money.
