I think his number will be retired, no question about it. I wonder if it will be during Mike McCarthy's tenure as head coach is the sticking point for me, or even the more assumed individual, Ted Thompson. If they were both out, he'd probably come to town tomorrow and retire his number.

I'd like to see the Packers reach out to Brett Favre in regards to retiring the number. Both sides screwed up, but the Packers are like the 'dad' in the relationship ... they are expected to take the higher road. I kind of wonder if fans will boo him though, actually, its a worry, not a wonder. I think booing him would be terribly unappreciative.

if he did no one would be there to boo him.

actually I doubt very many, if any, will boo during a retirement ceremony. He [aid his dues he finally retired and more importantly he did not lead the hated vikings to their own Lombardi Trophy. If he ha there would be some (many) who would never forgive him.

I don't understand that first line. When his number is retired, it will be at half time of a game and that means more than 70,000 fans will be there, to which some will wrongly boo unless its handled properly from both sides.

I think some fans are still butthurt he played for the Vikings. I think most are fine with the forcing a trade, playing with the Jets ... but the part that I feel Packers fans have stuck in their butt is playing for the Vikings. I think sweeping the Vikings in 2010 and winning the Super Bowl diluted that hate quite a bit.

Personally, I'd cheer for him at his number retirement ceremony. I think it was a douche move to go to the Vikings, but then again, how many teams were only a QB away from being legit Super Bowl contenders? One, it just happened to be the Vikings.

If he came to town TOMORROW there would not be 70000 fans there to witness the ceremony.

Oh, I see. You took my comment out of text and didn't really indicate what you were referring to and then ... wow. Look, the point I am making is that I feel Brett Favre will come to Green Bay to retire his number more quickly if Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson are not associated with the Packers. I don't understand how that was missed.

We can't retire his number yet.

My dad heard from a friend who heard from someone on the radio who heard from a pretty credible source that Favre will be on da Bears in 2012.

The Bears? Weird, I didn't hear that Brett Favre was part of a drug ring or anything of the sort that would qualify him as a Bears target.

Smokey (10h) : Fine wpr, U2 has your's and the other's permission to piss on any member at any time. woof
Zero2Cool (10h) : But we can assume if someone doesn't know, they can ask, or perform an internet search. Move on.
Smokey (11h) : Potential NFL Draftees and Players are asked to take it to score how smart they are .
Smokey (11h) : Wonderlic is a cognitive ability test, usually administered to new employees.
Smokey (11h) : It should not just be assumed that everyone knows what,"Wonderlic" is .
Zero2Cool (12h) : Most players don't care about wonderlic. Some agents prep players. Not reasonable standard.
beast (12h) : We shouldn't judge. ..
uffda udfa (13h) : He has a rep for keen football intelligence. Some guys just don't come across as bright.
uffda udfa (13h) : What thing should we judge intelligence on? Wonderlic is out to you. How he sounds is out.. what is criteria?
uffda udfa (13h) : Are you taking issue with him not being particularly bright? Based on what?
beast (13h) : It's sad your judging a person brightness on such shallow things...
shield4life (22h) : Resign Nick Perry
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Need some strong sharp passionate voices on D. Daniels gives great quotes.
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Nick Perry seems to be the team leader as he was giving pregame speeches that seemed very uninspiring.
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Morgan and his 14 wonderlic. Ever hear him talk? Man, not a bright guy at all.

Smokey (23-Jan) : DEFENSE RULES !
Zero2Cool (23-Jan) : Think you need to defensive leaders. Front Seven and Secondary. We seem to lack both. Daniels is closest.
