Did you all think I forgot about my NFL Week picks and posts? Nope. I had to move it a day with a game this big. What the Packers management tried to avoid has now become their biggest nightmare.
Last year, Brett Favre retired. The Packers moved on with him. Then Brett wanted to play but the Packers decided to still move on, trading the legend to the New York Jets, where the Packers were not going to play for 6 years and no chance of seeing Brett again. After a frustrating season, Favre retired again. The Jets cut Favre, leaving him free to sign with any team including the Packers division rival, the Minnesota Vikings, where he wanted to go last year.
The deal happened and this game was highlighted. It is not Favre traveling back to Green Bay. That happens in November. Tonight, however, it's Vikings versus Packers in Minnesota.
Favre said he wants to beat them for the way things ended. The Packers want to beat the shadow of Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, who had the task of replacing the legend would love to get that monkey off his back.
I am picking the Pack to take this game but for Favre and the Vikings to win the one on the road in November.
So, here it is: Who you got? Packers or Vikings?-Dr.FB
Brett Favre has told the Minnesota Vikings that he is going to remain retired and not return to the NFL He says the decision was incredibly difficult and he will most likely never play again.
"It was the hardest decision I've ever made," Favre said. "I didn't feel like physically I could play at a level that was acceptable. I would like to thank everyone, including the Packers, Jets and Vikings -- but, most importantly, the fans."
Favre leads the league in most touchdowns thrown, but also leads in interceptions. Favre has appeared in 2 super bowls and won 1.-Dr.FB
