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.

GoPack1984 (13m) : Dismal season? I think that's too harsh.
uffda udfa (14m) : Packers should have never been 4-6. Dismal season.
GoPack1984 (17m) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (17m) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic
uffda udfa (23m) : •thanks Shakespeare.
The_Green_Ninja (32m) : Mike at the end of the day is with the team every day and knows what is needed and not needed. Don't be surprised if Mike helps push the cha
Nonstopdrivel (36m) : Bated*
uffda udfa (39m) : It won't change until Ted is gone. I await that day with baited breath.
uffda udfa (40m) : Nobody has ever lost a championship game by as big of a margin as us. Title Town revolt.
uffda udfa (40m) : Did I hear wrong or was that the biggest beatdown in championship game history? Nice.
Nonstopdrivel (43m) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (49m) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools
shield4life (1h) : & management
shield4life (1h) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (1h) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (1h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (1h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (1h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (1h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"
uffda udfa (1h) : MM: We ran into a buzzsaw today. LOL. U came with no tools at all.
hardrocker950 (2h) : They showed up and played, we crawled in and died...
mojaveson (2h) : Kudos to the Falcons. I hope they win the Super Bowl.
uffda udfa (2h) : All credit to ATL. Not a word about needing to get better.
Zero2Cool (2h) : Ran out of talent, something we didn't have a plethora of on defense (my opinion)
uffda udfa (2h) : MM: Ran out of gas but proud of his guys.
