Thirty Sundays to NFL football: 30 reasons why we love the Green Bay Packers
Three-time MVP, all-time leader in consecutive starts in the NFL, winner of a Super Bowl and the savior of a franchise are all attributes by which we will remember Brett Favre.
Add to those accomplishments (among many, many others), the Green Bay Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame and that pretty much sums it up.
Yes, there are those who still have qualms about Favre – about the fact that he retired, unretired, retired and then ended his career as a thorn in the side of his former team.
For years, Packers fans were divided between those who still loved Favre for what he did for the franchise and the Favre haters who couldn’t forgive him for what he did to his former team.
Even the team brass – most notably Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy – were not pleased with Favre.
However, when team president Mark Murphy reached out to Favre to normalize relations last year and it was announced that the team was going to induct him into the franchise’s hall of fame, it seemed all was well. When Favre was greeted by an enthusiastic and loving crowd at his induction last summer, it was all well.
Favre is a hero for all time and a legend whose time as a Packer will never be forgotten.
