That's what the ushering out of Favre was, according to Bob McGinn. (sub required)
From a purely football perspective, the organizational shift against Favre began that November night in Dallas, gained steam in the arctic cold of Soldier Field and became a blaze during Favre's pathetic second-half showing against the New York Giants with a Super Bowl there for the taking.
Just about everyone who counted in the football department reached the conclusion that Favre could never win another championship. His dismal playoff record in the past decade couldn't be overlooked. And the Packers concluded that it would be the mother of all mistakes if Aaron Rodgers got away without being properly evaluated as a starter.
This is as I suspected. It's hard as fans to divorce emotion from the equation. But as I've stated time and time again, it's better for the Packers to get out of their relationship with Favre one year early rather than one year too late. It would seem the men charged with making football related decisons for the Green Bay Packers agree.
