The Green Bay Packers and their fans rolled out the red carpet for their former quarterback Brett Favre this past weekend and it couldn’t have gone much better. Except for one matter that made the Packers look small.
Ron Wolf once stated that his lone 1996 Super Bowl victory was a "fart in the wind," a one-and-done that frustrated him and the work he had put into building a team. Let's look at why Ron Wolf is now a Hall of Famer and goes far beyond Super Bowl wins.
It's been 21 years, 1 month, and 2 weeks since a Packers' backup quarterback has made a meaningful start. Ted Thompson has rolled the dice for years that that streak would continue indefinitely. Today, the Pack will start a washed-up veteran with no training camp experience and Thompson has no one to blame but himself.
