Relax! Keep your voice down. Why are you freaking out? Man, I guess the name Brett Favre still conjures a few emotions despite that fact that:
A) He took a dump in New York and won’t be welcome back.
2) Rodgers played like a Pro Bowler.
Here’s the deal. Rodgers is obviously still the guy in ’09. He’s proven he’s very capable, confident and pretty darn tough too. Packer nation is lucky this guy worked out and we locked him in, otherwise we could’ve been 0-16. With Favre as the #2, he might only take a few snaps during blowout games and for those die-hard Favre fans still out there, there’d be that sliver of hope Favre would rally us to victory one more time in the event Rodgers gets hurt.
Because we all know it’s not going to be Brian Brohm. Or Matt Flynn. Or whoever the backup QB is, I can’t remember.
There’s no quarterback controversy. You have a clear-cut decision between Rodgers and Favre for the starting QB and it rhymes with Flarin’ Flodgers, not Flett Blarve.
For Favre, he can take one for the Packers in a backup, veteran role while finishing his career where it matters. It’s a chance to make amends for all the B.S. waffling he put us through. And just for good measure, it’ll be written into his contract to mentor the younger players and have them over for steak and beers or whatever social things Greybeard apparently hasn’t done since the 90s.
The players will be happy. The coaches will be happy. Favre will be happy. And perhaps most importantly, we the fans will be happy.
