    For as many times over the years Brett Farve has helped Green Bay return to and maintain national recognition and domination. Well my good friends he has done it again in a way you might not even know.

    Two years ago heading into his last off-season Brett Farve still didn't know if he would be returning to the team or retire. Of course Green Bay knew what they had in Aaron Rodgers because they saw him everyday in practice. The Packers moved on forcing Farve to make a decision too retire, subsequently Green Bay used their 2nd round pick that year on Brian Brohm and a 5th Rounder on Matt Flynn. Once the Summer rolled around Frave decide he wanted to return to the game and we all know what has happened since then.

    Well you ask how did Farve help Green Bay. Here it is - approaching the NFL Draft one of Green Bay's primary needs was at TE and I remember reading an article in the Press-Gazette on how if Brett would have told them sooner that he was coming back then they would have used that 2nd round pick on a TE instead of Brohm. The TE they were looking at was Martellas Bennett who was drafted by the Cowboys leaving Green Bay with having to draft Jermichael Finley on the 3rd Round.

    Now I know the draft isn't a complete science and you have to have some luck, but the addition of Finley in Green Bay's offense is like the addition of Mathews on Green Bay's Defense. I don't know a Packer Fan out here that wouldn't have traded that 2nd Round Pick along with the 3rd Round Pick for Finley.

    He is head and heals better then Bennett and I would go as far to say that he could be the top TE in the NFL being in Green Bay's system very soon.

    As I began this thread with the indecision of Brett Farve and Green Bay's decision to move on let Finley fall to Green Bay. Ladies and Gentlemen he has Antonio Gates written all over him because he has the downfield speed and size to create uncover-able match-ups.

    Enjoy Packer Fans for years to come
