At some point everyone will look back on Brett Favre’s career in Green Bay and be amazed at what he was able to accomplish. Some are already able to do that, but there are plenty of Packers fans out there who are still upset over the way Favre’s career in Green Bay came to a bitter end. From the moment the Packers decided Aaron Rodgers was their guy, it felt like everything Favre did was to spite his former team. That is why the team has decided to wait a while before retiring his jersey.

As Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel pointed out, Packers president Mark Murphy recently said that the team will wait a year or two before officially retiring No. 4. Considering the way some fans feel about him and the feelings Favre still has toward the organization, that’s probably best for everyone.

Fans love to be a part of feel-good moments, so whenever the Packers do decide to give Favre the honor I’m sure it will be a special day. Regardless of how it ended, Favre spent the majority of his Hall of Fame career in Green Bay and brought the Lombardi Trophy back to Lambeau. While Green Bay belongs to Rodgers now, Packers fans will look past all the retirement flip-flopping and remember the Favre that played through a number of gruesome injuries on his way to every NFL passing record.
