Brett Favre Wishes Packers Well
Brett Favre is talking again and he’s talking about his former team, the Green Bay Packers.
Favre told NFL Network clown Deion Sanders he doesn’t have a relationship with the Packers, but twice said he wishes the team well.
Here’s Favre wishing the Packers well the first time.
“That day will come. I haven’t lost any sleep over it, nor have they. … I wish them well.
“What I did speaks for itself. What I left behind speaks for itself.”
Here’s him wishing them well the second time.
“You know what, I don’t know what the future holds. … And people think I’m crazy, but I don’t need to have a day. I don’t need to have a retirement, retire your jersey, all that stuff to solidify my career.
“I’m not gonna sit here and say when that time should be, will be, or that I’m waiting by the phone. I wish them well.”
I don’t think anyone believes Favre doesn’t want to be honored by the Packers and most people see these salvos with NFL Network — this is Favre’s second recent go-round with the network — as his way of trying to ingratiate himself to fans and the organization.
In has last appearance, Favre complimented his successor, Aaron Rodgers, for the first time.
Will it work? In time, probably.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
