For the ultimate Favre fan

If you're one of those who covet all things Brett -- as in ol' #4, the former QB for the Packers, the guy who is still lightin' it up for the Jets -- then you'll want to get hold of this: Favre's former Green Bay home.

That's can now own the home that Brett resided in during his days in Green Bay. Actually, the home is in Ashwaubenon (pronounced ash-waw-be-non), one of the Green Bay suburbs. According to an Associated Press report, real estate agency Micoley and Company is listing the 3,000-square-foot ranch home. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and assessed -- according to Brown County property records -- at $424,900. The asking price? $475,000. C'mon, Packer fans. Surely one of you out there can ante up that kind of coin for a one-of-a-kind piece of Packer -- and Favre -- history. Then, be sure to invite all of us for a housewarming!

Rodgers will be a game-time decision
Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters today that whether or not QB Aaron Rodgers will play Sunday will be a game-time decision. He said he'd give Rodgers until 90 minutes before kickoff to make his decision as to whether he can go or not.

I think if there is any way Rodgers can even start the game, he will. But from the sound of reports coming out of Green Bay all week, it would be more likely that rookie QB Matt Flynn will play most if not all of the game...barring some miraculous, Favre-like healing on the part of Rodgers.

Hmmmm...maybe if Rodgers went and sat in Brett's house for the next few days...
