What I find funny about Brett Favre's legacy with the Packers is that the only thing that can save it now is losing.
One could call it mildly amusing that if Brent Favre wants to see his number plastered for all eternity on Lambeau Field anytime in the next decade, it will boil down to two games. Two games he must lose.
There is no need to re-hash the story, highlight some timeline, or talk about the latest developments. Not on this blog anyway. We all know it's going to happen. The only question left for Packer fans to ask themselves is, "How long do you make Bert wait to have his jersey hung?" I think it's a pretty valid question, and I also believe that "the Favre" will need to lose both games against the Packers for anyone to even consider it for at least the next ten years.
You might be bitter, angry, and upset, but I don't care who you are, you can't pass the time fast enough. No self respecting football fan can deny that. I dare to say these may be the two biggest football games ever. Anyone who says they don't want to see the Pack square off against the Favre led Vikings is lying... and insane. If you aren't excited to wear your heart and soul on your shoulder for Monday night in the Metrodome, then you aren't a sports fan.
I am fine with Blaine playing for the Vikings. I am even fine with Brennan doing well with the team. I imagine that most fans will still welcome the jersey in the hallowed halls of Lambeau even with a Super Bowl ring bathed in purple.
As long as the Packers win.
It all comes down to those two games. If the Packers take both, and let's hope they do, I say point taken and denied. Hang up the jersey, tell Bryce to pick up any self respect that he has left, and whitewash the number on the big green fence.
If the Packers lose, even one of these bound to be epic matchups; it's going to be a long... long wait for Blake.
I wish the game was tomorrow.
