Default Favre's possible return

As reported by ESPN, Brett Favre has communicated with Packers' head coach Mike McCarthy about his possible return from "retirement".

I think the Packers need to take a stand and tell Favre that he either retires and stays retired, or he comes back and gets released from the team. It's not fair to the team, the GM, Mike McCarthy, Aaron Rodgers, and Brian Brohm that Favre comes back to be the QB for the Packers.

They have begun to move on from the Favre era. The team is rallying around Aaron Rodgers. They have been through all of their offseason workouts and are now only a few short weeks away from training camp.

For goodness sake, they have already announced that at halftime of the home opener they were retiring his jersey number.

Favre, I love ya like no other player, but it's time to move on. I'd love to see him play forever, but he can't be doing this to his fans, especially packers fans

Sheesh, Aaron Rodgers has to be the most insecure player in the NFL because of Favre. It's not enough that he has to live up to his legend, but he also has to worry about the possibility of him coming out of retirement?

I hope McCarthy and the Packers finally put the team before Favre this time.

Guys this is the NFL, do we really know who started the rumors. Heck for all we know Favre could have been out to dinner and joking with someone and then it leaks. Or maybe the "person" from the packers office just wanted to put the packers back in the media spotlight or perhaps light a fire under Rodgers' butt!

Or heck maybe Favre's wife and kids are so annoyed with him by now they want him to play until he croaks on the sidelines....who really knows.

Actuallt there was an interview on NFL network Total Access Favre with Steve Mariuci (sp?) and Favre pretty much said he has regretted the retirement decision ever since making it . He said something like "the pack" was a strong team possed to contend and that he would'nt rule out a comeback....... stay tuned

Not sure exactly when the interview was done but he definatly wasn't rulling out a comeback.
