Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers seem headed for a reconciliation of some sorts.  Favre is clearly retired now and headed to a first ballot Hall of Fame, so why not kiss and make up right? Favre was speaking to Joe Buscaglia of WGR-AM in Buffalo on Thursday to promote Jim Kelly’s “Hunter’s Hope” charity auction, and took the blame for how his career in Green Bay ended. “It’s over and done with. I was at fault,” Favre said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I feel that both sides had a part in it. If you could go back would I or them have done things differently? I’m sure both sides would. But you can’t.” Favre was optimistic when talk of having his number retired was brought up, and he  credited team president Mark Murphy for helping patch up the relationship. “I’m honored just by the thought,” Favre said. “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. Mark Murphy and I have talked on numerous occasions. I never expected them to do anything. I’m not one to sit here and say I think they need to do this and do that.” Favre did indicate that  he had no idea when a reunion would happen. “As time goes, it heals a lot of things,” he said. “So the things that transpired that led to us ‘breaking up’ if you will, to me, are over and done with. When will (the jersey retirement) happen? I don’t think either side is trying to push the issue. …I think both sides are genuine. I know they are. And that’s the way it has to come across because that’s the way it should be. We don’t want to go out there waving to the crowd with our backs to each other. And I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
