What a change in his tune? Didnt he tell Peppers to beat the Packers to keep us out of the playoffs? Now he says we will win it all?

Then says he hold no bitterness? Again he told Peppers to beat the Packers, and no bitterness?

LOL!!

Brett Favre may have left Green Bay three years ago, but he's still got the Packers in his heart.

"I think they will win it all! -- Brett Favre on the Packers in an e-mail response to ESPN's Ed Werder

In an e-mail response to ESPN's Ed Werder, Favre said Monday that the Packers are "by far" the best team left in the NFL playoffs.

"[Packers QB] Aaron [Rodgers] is the best QB and the receiving corps is the best ever, maybe," Favre said in the e-mail. "But [defensive coordinator] Dom [Capers] and the defense gets the MVP award at this stage."

Rodgers, who's emergence made Favre expendable in Green Bay before the 2008 season, led the Packers to a dominant 48-21 win over the top-seeded Falcons on Saturday.

Favre officially filed retirement papers with the league Monday after two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and one year with the New York Jets. The 41-year old Mississippi native originally retired in 2008 after the Packers decided to go with Rodgers as their starting quarterback.

However, Favre decided he wanted to return later in the year and was eventually traded to the Jets.

But Favre insisted he holds no grudges against the organization he was with for 16 seasons. [size=18](yet wanted the Bears to beat them)[/size]

"There is no bitterness. I'm happy for them [size=18](yet wanted the Bears to beat them)[/size]and very happy and content with my legacy," Favre told Werder.

Favre again chose to retire after the 2008 season, but signed with the rival Vikings in August 2009. Favre's decision alienated many of those Packers fans who once cheered his Lambeau Field heroics.

Still, Favre thinks this is the year for Green Bay to win its first Super Bowl since Favre and the Packers beat the New England Patriots in 1998 in Super Bowl XXXI.

"I think they will win it all! I hope they do, if you are wondering," Favre said in the e-mail

He is trying to get in the good graces of Packer nation now that he is retired, and he doesn't want the fans to hate him, and is trying to heal old wounds by saying this. I don't buy it AT ALL.

See I'm through being bitter. By no means am I trying to separate myself from others -- I totally understand disliking the guy. I just mean to say, honestly, that my feelings of anger have mostly been replaced by sadness. Favre has screwed a lot of things up, in terms of his "legacy" and his good graces with legions of fans who used to worship him. It's mostly on him. I don't mean to deflect blame.

But even in lieu of the emphatic dishonesty in his personal life, I've always tended to find him sincere -- in fact, it's one of his shortcomings. Favre always tells it like he sees it, which is subject to change from day to day.

When I hear him praise Aaron and the receivers and Capers -- yeah, it could just as well be a show -- I tend to believe him. Any bitterness I continue to hold against him is necessarily offset by the fact that I became a Packer fan in large degree to #4.

P.S. Ed Werder -- it was January 31st, 1997. Learn yo shit.

How could the Packers receiving corps be the "best ever, maybe" when it doesn't even include Randy Moss?

Maybe the brief stint of being Randy Moss' team mate has lit a bulb for him?

Zero2Cool (54m) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (1h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (1h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (1h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (3h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (3h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.

Zero2Cool (4h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (4h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (5h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (5h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (5h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (5h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (6h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (6h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.

Zero2Cool (8h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (11h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (21h) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (21h) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (21h) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.

Smokey (19-Jan) : Great, can we move past that story and get back to the Atlanta game ?
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Packers exec Eliot Wolf has withdrawn his name for 49ers' GM job, as @TomPelissero reported. He didn't feel it was the right time.
TheKanataThrilla (19-Jan) : We'll just have to score TDs then.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : That's what we know.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Crosby, Mason K Illness
