Favre just doesn't get it:

"I think it will take three to five years for this relationship to be repaired," Mortensen told ESPNews.

In the telephone press conference held late Wednesday afternoon, Favre said he had not given thought to when he will feel good enough about his relationship with the Packers' front office to participate in a jersey retirement ceremony.

"I don't have an answer for that," Favre said. "It may be five years. It may be, you know, the first game (of 2009). I don't know."

Favre was asked if his retirement ceremony would have to wait until after Thompson left the organization."I don't know," Favre said

The Packers don't retire numbers very often. Hardly ever. There are 26 former Packers in the pro football hall of fame. The Packers have retired only five of those players' numbers. It is a much more elite honor than being selected to the hall of fame. Jim Taylor does not have his number retired.

If the Packers offer you the chance to have your number retired you set aside your Molly-Ringwald-Sixteen-Candles pouting and accept! Favre behaves like he would be doing the Packers some great favor by showing up to have his number retired.

Yesterday, the Packers re-affirmed that the team intends to retire Favre's number. For the record, I think the Packers should wait a while to retire Favre number (if at all). At least five years. What is the rush?


  1. I love how our mediocre minds think alike.

    I agree wholeheartedly, although the fact that we chose to post on the same type of subject at almost identical times is kind of creepy.

  2. Agreed 100%...I was never a huge fan of people with egos...Favre is more popular in Green Bay the TT...but Favre made his point when he cried and got sent out of GB...we know you don't like TT...Wisconsin and the Nation know you don't like TT...don't ruin your reputation because you are trying to make a point that you made last year...
