The Green Bay Packers expect to retire former quarterback Brett Favre's number before 2016, when Favre will be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Answering a fan's question on the Packers' website, Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy said he thinks the time is coming for Favre to be honored by the team....<img alt="" border="0" src="http://stats.wordpress.com/b.gif?host=profootballtalk.nbcsports.com&#038;blog=15932921&#038;post=2195116&#038;subd=nbcprofootballtalk&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

Well Played OlHoss. Many people have said similar things but I think you said it best.

to be honest I was very much in the anti-Favre camp during his embarrassing exit. However, I also appreciate how much he meant to the team during his tenure and while I am not a big fan of retiring numbers (Reggie White, long-time Eagle is retired?) I think it's the right move. Canadeao, Hutson, Starr, Nitschke and now Favre? Sounds about right.

Not to derail this topic, but I think Reggie White's number was retired more so because of his sudden passing which was I think five or six years after he last played for the Packers.
