Its not If Favre deserves to have Packers retire his number ( because he does!) Its does the the Packers deserve to have him there after the way their fans treated him. I seen how Favre said he was to blame as much as the Packers management & that's true but that doesn't change the treatment the Packers fans gave him. The man won a super bowl & many championships how can the writer ask if Favre deserves to have the Packers retire his number? Wow.

Because Favre was the most selfish star in football history. He made everything about him. Held 3 teams hostage. The good thing is he will always be the 2nd best QB in packers history.

Rodgers career isn't over & he don't have near the championships & Rodgers failure to win in big games I would say it can't be Aaron that's first:)

Aaron Rodgers is the best QB I have ever seen. Way better than Brady and Peyton Manning is the all time choker.

Give Rodgers a running game he could be unstoppable the way Ponder SHOULD be with the best back of all time.

I dunno. The fanbase (like any group of people) is judged as a whole, unfairly, by the acts of a few. The way I see it, there are 3 groups of fans:

1. The group that thinks that Favre is a traitor and the second coming of Satan.

2. The group that thinks Favre walked on water and could do no wrong.

Those two groups, admittedly the most vocal, together constitute about 10% of the Packer fan base.

and then...

3. The other 90%, who think that Favre was a great quarterback, appreciated all that he did while a member of the Packers, and feel that he needed to do whatever he felt was best for him when the Packers decided to go with Rodgers. At the same time, those fans understand that the Packers were going to move on, were ready to commit to Rodgers, and don't see much wrong with how either Favre or the Packers went about their business. No harm, no foul. It was just business. It happens. People move on.

Count me in the 90% of fans in group 3.

Even as a Packer fan I can't put Favre, Starr, or Rodgers on the top of my alltime list. However, Rodgers career is not over! Despite what certain POS valor stealing a-holes say, many of us true Packer fans ALWAYS have honored all of our great players. Favre will understandably be honored to have his number retired by the most storied and successful franchise in NFL history.

Bishop is still a Packer as of now for what its worth good or bad..
Its obvious the LB corp needs to get a kick in the ass and get tougher and how does cutting your toughest LB ( or trading him away) make sense,unless either A...TT thinks someone like Terrell Manning ( out last year with Colitis) will be that Tough guy and ready to go. OR B....they are still afraid of that hammy..I cant see they are afraid of his cap number as its 3-4M but and with a few FA next year who wont be back,there still should be a decent amount of money under the cap

What about the stadium full of fans that was booing Favre when he played in green bay as the Vikings QB, It had to be 85% of the stadium booing him & the calling of vile names one of the reason Favre doesn't want to go back to green bay to let the Packers retire his number. That fan treatment by a stadium full of people was uncalled for & showed no class at all.

The Packers got Aaron two backs in this draft. The one they had Green he was a good back, the thing is the Packers front line is a pass blocking first & the run blocking is a after thought. The Packers didn't do anything to help there front line & hasn't for a few years & its a reason that Arron is on his butt 51 times a season. Look at Mannings MVPs Manning will go down as one of the greats of all time & Rodgers if he last being sacked like he does will go down as very good. Brees isover him as one of the top yards passing QBs so that record is also gone.

Rodgers is a all time great. Let me ask you a question. You would regrettably take Ponder over Newton. Who would you take Ponder or Rodgers.

One fact is forgotten in this discussion, if the Packers didn't serve beer at the games the 90% would never show up.

Rightnow I would be nuts not to take Aaron, like I said Aaron is very good but Brees is better/ if you want to look at over all years passing Brees wins hands down. I think no way is Aaron in the class of Peyton Manning because of Peyton's over all proformance for 18 years 4 MVPs countless championships. Aaron has had a Championship team from day one on the field. Favre left him with 13-3 team & aaron took over & the team went 6-10 But they was still that same championship team & that is why Aaron went on to win the super bowl his second year He had a championship team to start with & the some of the best receivers in the NFL.
