Mark Murphy: We are going to retire Favres number

Quote:
Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre has been a constant topic on the sixth annual Tailgate Tour and team president Mark Murphy was asked about the eventual retirement of the No. 4.

Eventually, hell come back into the fold. We are going to retire his number, Murphy said to a round of applause. He deserves that for what he did as a Packer. There are very few players in our history that had their number retired. He deserves it though. But its a very, very meaningful honor and we want to do it at a time when its meaningful for both him and the organization.

I think its probably going to be a few years. We want to make sure that hes really retired first. We made that mistake when he first retired after the 2007 season. Ironically, we were going to retire his number and have a big ceremony at the opening game that next season against the Minnesota Vikings. Little did we know hed end up playing that season for the Jets.

Former receiver Antonio Freeman elaborated on Favre and his relationship to the organization.

This is a league and a world of second chances, Freeman said. So, I think at one point in time well have to give Brett Favre a second chance to come back home. He did have a very meaningful career here. Im personally biased because he and I shared so many magical moments. He was my quarterback for, basically, my entire career. He was a guy who threw me all of my touchdowns.

Things like this, youre torn because as a player you see the drive to want to continue to play football, so you appreciate that. But you never appreciate the fact that he puts on purple on Sundays as his second career. So, thats a problem. But in due time, hell be back.

Since the Vikings were part of the Favre discussion, Murphy asked former defensive tackle Gilbert Brown to give his thoughts on the color purple.

Ive got two things about purple, Brown said. No. 1, grown men should never wear purple. Two, they look like 11 little Barneys out there. Three, the Vikings are horrible.[/size]

Murphy then added a little jab by saying, And also their stadium has a hole in it.


Go get em Gravedigger! :thumbleft:

I figured the number would eventually be retired, and it I think it is definitely deserved.

Oh, and that Gilbert Brown quote is fantastic!

I think they should wait to retire #4 until after they have retired #12.

I don't. I think they should retire them in the SAME ceremony. :icon_smile:

Ted thompson will be long gone from Green Bay before The Packers retire Brett's Jersey.

Just too much bad blood both ways, I'm not trying to start a big debate here, it is what it is, in the end it will all get done.

I'm betting Ted will stay another 3-5 years, after he leaves, there will be plenty of time to Retire #4.

In all of the articles and interviews I've read and heard, I never got the impression Ted had anything against Brett so I'm not sure how bad blood is going both ways. Ted has a picture of Brett Favre hanging up in his office.

Agreed, the big man on campus couldn't handle being slapped down so he acted like a spoiled child. That is a one sided fued. If memory serves correctly, Terry Bradshaw went through something like this where he felt wronged by the Steelers, only to realize later in life he acted like a jackass. Terry has since patched everything up with Nole and the Steelers.

Yeah, but is he giving it a kiss before he goes home from work or is he throwing stuff at it?
