Truck Watch 2007

Normally, Packer fans, we're talking about "Tractor Watch," as in keeping an eye on Brett Favre's offseason activities to try to get some indication of his potential return...or retirement. But today, we've retitled this effort to Truck Watch. What's up with that?

Well, it's like this. Seems as if Brett drives a Ford truck when in and around Green Bay. Thus, the "truck watch." That's because 620WTMJ radio in Milwaukee was reporting this afternoon that apparently Brett has renewed his endorsement agreement with Bergstrom Auto, Wisconsin's largest auto dealer. Brett apparently told the folks at Bergstrom -- according to the report on the radio segment -- that "he'd be there."

So, if this report is accurate, and Brett is renewing his endorsement deal with a Wisconsin auto dealer -- although players do deals such as these in retirement, too -- it just might be a sign that, in fact, Brett might "be there" in returning to play.
