Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron is hoping to compared to Brett Favre.

Well, if you are wanting to be compared to anyone you might as well set your sights high.

“It always looked like he was that four-year-old kid that just won the starting job by raising his right hand and his left hand, and getting it correct and being the only one,” McCarron said this week, via ESPN.com. “That’s what I love about the game, because it’s a game. Yes, we get paid a great amount and it’s a blessing. But at the end of the day, it’s a game and you have to play it like you’re a kid in the backyard just having fun.”

McCarron has a good chance to try and draw some Favre comparisons on Sunday as the Bengals take on the 49ers who feature the NFL’s 27th ranked pass defense.
