I just heard this on ESPN Radio this morning. They were talking hypothetical situations, but can you imagine if this really happens?! Here's basically what they said.

Week 1 features the Vikings @ Packers in Green Bay on Monday Night Football. Green Bay plans to retire Brett Favre's #. However, what if Minnesota signs Favre, then Favre would be at Lambeau Field as a visitor! Who would the crowd root for? Would the Packers still retire his # on that day? Can you imagine the ratings ESPN/MNF would have?

He wont be playing for anyone else besides the Pack if he comes back. Why would Tompson trade him to a team within his own divison? If Favre comes back Rodgers ges traded and Brohm is now the QB of the future for the Pack.

That is what is probably gonna happen if Favre comes back. I feel sorry for Rodgers, though. He is very close to getting his first chance to lead a team, now Favre wants to come back. I wonder how he feels.

Think of the Vikings scenario that ESPN Radio mentioned as a hypothetical situation.

You dont know what he is doing. The media makes everything much worse than it is. Everyone always want to criticize him and say that he goes back and forth every season but it is the media that does that. He has never once gone back or forth. He has played and then retired. If he decides he wants to play then so be it. He wont be the first player to do that and certainly wont be the last.

No, for the past few years, Favre has kept the Packers in limbo saying that he will make his decision when he wants to, mostly right before training camp. True that this is the first time he actually retired, but if he wasn't planning on coming back, he should just come out in front of the cameras and put all of this to rest. Since he isn't, then it seems to me that he is contemplating it.

Yes, but all the last few years he never said he wasnt coming back. That means he never went back and forth, we was always playing. I never had a doubt in my mind he would be back the last few seasons and I think the Packers FO knew that too.

The media makes his decision making into much more than it should.

I am one of the biggest Favre fans there is but he needs to come out and say IM NOT COMING BACK, i will be golfing, cutting the grass whatever when football season comes around. After this hit the news a couple of days ago why hasnt he said it is flase or atleast his agent.

ROdgers seems to be busting his butt to be a leader but is being undermind by all this and it isnt fair. He waited like he should have til Favre hung them up, he did so let Rodgers take the ship and see what he can do.

Assuming Favre wants to return w/ the Packers, it puts the team in quite a predicament. On the one hand, they'd let him come back, thereby screwing the rest of the team (esp. Rodgers and the new QBs they drafted). Or they tell him to take a hike and risk pissing off their fans.
