Brett Favre says it was his fault for the way things ended badly between he and the Green Bay Packers in 2007. “I was at fault. I feel that both sides had a part in it,” Favre said in a radio interview with WGR 550.  “If you could go back would I or them have done things differently? I’m sure both sides would. But you can’t.” “So I hate it, that it happened that way and I tried to go on and play my best football in spite of those things. And I had a great year my first year in Minnesota and up until my bicep was torn in New York I really felt we were having a great year. So I look back and have fond memories of all those years. “In 20 years of football, really I don’t hold any regrets. I know I gave it my all. Had 16 great, wonderful years in Green Bay. Had a lot of success, played with a lot of great teammates. I was part of some teams that had some great coaches who have all branched out, McCarthy being one of those. “Again, it happened. It’s over and done with. I think things will be fine in due time.” The relationship between Favre and the Packers turned sour when Favre came out of retirement in 2008 and was traded to the New York Jets.  Favre signed with the Packers’ NFC North rival, the Minnesota Vikings, a season later, further damaging their relationship. Last month, Aaron Rodgers said he hoped the Packers would retire Favre’s No. 4 before he’s inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “I think it’s time for our fans, this organization and Brett to heal through this and to move forward together before he gets the greatest honor of being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.” Favre said during the radio interview that he’s honored just by the thought. “I don’t know of any player who would not want that to happen,” said Favre. “I’m honored just by the thought. Obviously there was, if you want to call it, ‘bad blood’ or whatever, I just think that people started picking sides. And really I’m over that and have been over it.” “Aaron has said some very nice things. He and I have a good relationship. I had a chance to present an award with him at the Super Bowl and that was for real. It wasn’t for show. And so I think everything will be fine.” The post Brett Favre on Packers breakup: ‘I was at fault’ appeared first on Sports Glory.
