I'd love to tell Packers fans that I take little delight in Favre's admission on Bob Costas' HBO show that he'd consider playing in another city, but that'd be dishonest. There's nothing I love more than a good I-told-you-so.

Favre wants out of Green Bay. He wants to be in the same position as McNair, who left Tennessee and now has a chance to lead a playoff-caliber Baltimore team to the Super Bowl.

I don't blame Favre. He deserves an opportunity to go out on a high note. By dragging out his retirement decision all winter and into the spring, Favre gave the Packers a clear indication that he wanted to be traded. He just didn't want to be the bad guy and demand a trade.

I picked up on the signals. Why didn't Green Bay's front office? Because Ted Thompson, Green Bay's general manager, is a moron who is so afraid of the truth that he probably doesn't read this column. If your NFL general manager doesn't have this column bookmarked, it's a sure sign that your team is in trouble.

Favre told Costas: "If it comes to a point where they [the Packers] do start over, and I feel like I can play and they say, 'Brett, if you want to go somewhere else, go ahead, but we've got to start over, it's time for us to rebuild. It just doesn't make sense, so do what you want.' If I got the itch at some point, I can't say no."

Favre then told Wisconsin reporters: "Would I consider playing for someone else? I guess I would. Do I think that'll happen? I'm 99.9 percent sure that that won't happen. So, that's it."

Yeah, Favre is 99.9 percent sure the Packers are too stupid to let go of the Brett Favre money train and try to properly rebuild the franchise.

The Packers should trade Favre now, while his value is still relatively high. If they stick him out there for 16 games with their terrible offensive line, Favre's 2007 value will plummet. Had he been on the market this past offseason, playoff contenders such as the Dolphins, Ravens, Broncos and Redskins all would've made plays for Favre's services.

Now the Packers will have to wait for a starter to get injured before Favre has any real trade value. Right now, at this very moment, Favre only makes sense in one city: Chicago.
