  1. It’s ok E.. You still have Aaron Rodgers.. *please don’t hit me* 😉

  2. best of luck to favre… always enjoyed watching him play… whether good or bad, it was always exciting to experience (you don’t watch it) the gunslinging.

    he’s retiring at the right time after a largely unexpected highly successful year.

    i feel bad for aaron rodgers now, nobody can follow favre’s act…

  3. Agreed LD.. Rodgers has no idea what he is in store for.. The media and fans are gonna eat him alive if he doesn’t win

  4. Rodgers will get a one year audition. He is an UFA after this year, but given his brief fragile history I have a feeling Aaron Brooks will start more games as a Packer then Aaron Rodgers. The guy knows McCarthy’s system from their days in New Orleans. He may have a permanent case of “He Sucks”, but he also needs a job

  5. Ya know.. I just thought of something Sean.. With Favre retiring.. You no longer have a reason to tell him to suck it! Seeing as he will no longer make your bears his bitch! 😉

  6. Never got a chance to see him play in person. *sigh* oh well all good things must come to an end. At least he retired with a ring unlike Danny M.
