    I agree that dwelling on Favre needs to end. I did not try to bring up any bad blood. I just thought it would be an interesting topic. Hope I did not offend anyone.

    Favre kept playing until he was physically done, so I don't think he would've retired after 2007 with a Super Bowl victory. And perhaps, as a result, Rodgers would still be on the bench now or on another team.

    If Favre did retire and stayed in good graces with the team, he may have stuck around Green Bay -- not all the time, but enough to cast a shadow over Rodgers. Did Rodgers benefit from having a 100% Favre-less team?

    In playing this game, I was gonna take the 07 win but then I saw your post Murgen and that makes more sense to me.
    So I agree except for one thing.
    I don't think Favre would have quit if they would have won the SB.
    I think he would have stayed.
    His ego wasn't ready to leave the car and let someone else do the driving.
    Didn't he feel forced or pressured to leave GB?

    Anywhoosie, I'm glad things turned out the way they did. Now we have another top caliber QB. Only this one does intense preparation and is careful with each and every throw.
    We don't have a prima donna who thinks he's good enough to miss training camp and who shows up like with 5 seconds to spare at Lambeau on game day.
