JSOnline–Practice/Injury Report: Doubtful: TE Finley, C Spitz.  Questionable: LT Clifton, S Martin, DE Wynn. Probable: LB Matthews, QB Rodgers, G Sitton, OT Tauscher, CB Woodson.

AOL Fanshouse: Circle Route Brings Favre Back Home–”OK, if not anger, then certainly payback. If not all raw, then certainly personal. This is a dream game for Favre.  He found a way to get back on Lambeau Field after he was booted from it.  For Favre, that alone is victory.”

How Did We Get Here: Awesome Video. Sites are playing the video with one-line editorials playing the classy “back stabber” or “loser” suck-up-to-management cliches.  McCarthy:  ”I never expected it to come to this.”

Commentary–Fair & Balanced: In Favre-A-Palooza: Round 1 MNF Game, I stated that GM TT may privately wish the postFavre era in the Rodgers era could fade away into NFL history. Yet, the fans must decide Favre’s legacy.  You must remember these facts: (1) he is one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks to play the game (2) the Packers will retire his No. 4 and (3) he will be a NFL Hall of Famer.  Meanwhile, the press and the fans can’t wait to see the next episode in the Favre soap opera.   Maybe all good things under a golden sun in an autumn day can go on forever forever….It’s great theater & great football.
