Favre: Always a Packer

Yesterday, Milwaukee TV station TMJ4's Lance Allan caught up with Brett Favre in Miami as he played a practice round before Wednesday's Pro-Am for the PGA's Ford Championship at Doral. Favre said a number of things, including he had yet to make up his mind about retiring or returning. When asked if would consider being traded to a team that has a chance to win a championship (apparently more quickly than most seem to think the Packers will), Favre said, "I've always considered myself a Green Bay Packer and always will. I can't imagine playing anywhere else." Whether that precludes the alternative, who knows. But Favre's commitment to the Packers obviously runs deep. No surprise there. He has been and is the face of the Green Bay Packers. One would hope and believe the Pack's commitment to Favre is equally deep and they would not consider parting with the future Hall-of-Famer.
