Team president Mark Murphy has said numerous times that the Packers intend to retire Favre’s No. 4 jersey before his likely Pro Football Hall of Fame induction in 2016, but the team continues to drag their feet. Well today Favre talked to the USA Today and hopes to be back in Green Bay soon.
“Things are much better,” Favre said Thursday. “I haven’t been back in Green Bay since we actually played there, but in my opinion things are much better. Time heals a lot of things, and I think in this case, you’re playing for the rival team, things are going to change. There’s no better history than there is in Green Bay, the tradition, and people love their team there, and they usually hate the other team. So when you join their opponent, that’s going to happen. Again, time heals a lot of things.
“It’s going to happen, I’ll be back up there. Again, my career in Green Bay, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It was awesome. The people were awesome, and I just think everything’s going to be fine and, in my opinion, it is now. It’s just a matter of getting back up there.”
I don’t know about you, but Brett Favre symbolizes Green Bay. A hard working person who is willing to fight through anything to win. Get it done Green Bay.
