News from the NFC North including the defending champion Green Bay Packers and their rivals the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings. Up to the minute special Brett Favre retirement ceremony information.

"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
