Watching Tom Brady talk about Aaron Rodgers makes me feel all sorts of ways. Sure, both QBs have a great deal of respect and admiration for one another. Rodgers has praised him up and down and - in the clearest example of "'imitation is flattery" - he's even adopted some of his TB12 ways because no one has done it as good for as long as Brady.
But the way Tom Brady talks about Aaron Rodgers... well the QB crush is on full display.
"I think everyone is pretty much always in awe of how he makes it look so easy..."
This the face you make when you're talking about someone you're falling in love with. You tell people about the cute little things they do, how adorable their mannerisms are, and you can't help but smile as you're talking about them because that's just the way they make you feel.
"You know, just the throwing motion, the velocity on the ball, the placement on the ball, how quickly the ball gets from his hand to the receiver's hands, and umm… it's just been unbelievable to watch over the years, and he's kept it going.
He's a great passer - he's very efficient. I mean like his touchdown-to-interception ratio, he basically doesn't throw interceptions and he throws a lot of touchdowns so, um… his decision making is just phenomenal."
But the more you talk about them, the more you start to miss them, and before you know it your thoughts have carried you away, leaving your cheeks flushed with complete adoration and amazement.
Suddenly you find yourself realizing just how incredible they are and you, well, you just feel lucky to be a part of their lives.
"And then, obvioulsy, to throw as many touchdowns as he has, scramble for touchdowns, and his ability as a mobile quarterback to buy more time for his receivers is pretty unbelievable, too.
There's a lot of great things to say about his game. He's one of the great quarterbacks to ever play the game."
Tom Brady is clearly in love with Aaron Rodgers because how can he not be! Great recognizes great.
And for only the third time in their careers, great will face great this Sunday.
Let's just hope we don't have any… confusions.
