Packers to retire Brett's No. 4 at first game

The Packers announced today -- and not really to the surprise of many -- that the team would retire Brett Favre's #4 at the first regular season game on September 8 vs. the ViQueens. This will the nationally televised season opener for Monday Night Football, as well.

Do you think that will possibly add any pressure to the regular season debut of new QB Aaron Rodgers???

Brett's number will be the sixth retired by the Packers, joining wide receiver Don Hutson's #14, fullback Tony Canadeo's #3, quarterback Bart Starr's #15, linebacker Ray Nitschke's #66 and defensive end Reggie White's #92. That's quite an elite group. It becomes even more so with the addition of ol #4.

Whatchya think? Will that be a hot ticket?
