Good job Green Bay

July 12, 2008 - Mike Mathison

What is wrong with how Green Bay is treating it's favorite son?


The fans want him, the brass doesn't.

The Packers have said they will not give Brett Favre his unconditional release, allowing him to go to another team.

They won't trade him.

So, is there a reason they should take him off the 'retired' list, or whatever the official name of the last is?

No, there is no reason.

Favre said a few weeks after retiring in March that he wanted to come back and Green Bay welcomed him with open arms.

Just before the press conference saying No. 4 was back behind center, Favre balked, saying he changed his mind (again) and wanted to stay retired.

Nothing else came about until Brett decided he really does want to play. Of course, this came after Green Bay used a draft pick for Aaron Rodgers' backup and began life after Favre.

The Packers needed to move on and so does Brett. It's Rodgers' team now, not Brett's.

Green Bay has said they would love for Favre to be Rodgers' backup, but that will never happen because the myopic Packer fans will begin chanting "We want Favre" as Rodgers' first incomplete pass is in midair.

The Packers' brass has given Favre something of the cold shoulder, and that has nothing to do with Wisconsin's winters.

Rodgers' has the keys now and I'm tired of hearing "Who would you want - Favre or Rodgers?"

Brett made his choice. Live with it.
