The Green Bay Packers Want To Retire The Number Of Brett Favre; Is This A Good Move
Brett Favre is arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the NFL. He rose to fame with the Green Bay Packers before he and the team had an ugly divorce in 2008. This led to Favre bouncing around before joining the Minnesota Vikings, where he came one game away from playing in another Super Bowl. The feelings between the the two sides are slowly repairing and the Packers want to retire Favre’s number.
As a long time fan of the franchise (and part owner), I am very wary about this move happening in the next year or two. The wound is still too fresh. I, like many other fans, felt betrayed by Favre going to the Vikings. It felt like Favre was trying to get back at the team and the fans. This is what led to the widespread angry that fans felt in 2010.
I would probably be okay with this move in like five years or so. Let the wound heal a little more. We can not forget how great Brett Favre was. He basically rescued the team from obscurity, he won three MVPs, and he also won a Super Bowl. He was a great player, but his exit was not what we all had in mind.
Brett Favre will eventually get his number retired. The bond needs to be fixed and fans will eventually forgive Favre. It just will not happen in the next two years.
