Brett Favre - It's a New Day!

Thoughts by: Coach Brown

I intentionally waited to write this blog in reference to Brett Favre. I have mixed feelings, but at the end of the day, I needed to write about it and get it off of my chest.

There is no doubt that when Brett Favre does actually retire that he is going to be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer. Absolutely no doubt, that's why it's hard for me to understand why the Green Bay Packers would not welcome him back as their starting quarterback after he led them to the NFC Championship game last Season. That is one game away from the Superbowl! Amazing!

I do understand the business side of the NFL and since the Packers invested in Aaron Rodgers several years ago to take over for Brett when he was finished on the playing field. Obviously, the Packers felt like the time was now for Aaron to take over.

I believe that Brett & the Packers Organization have been going back and forth about his retirement or stepping away for the past couple of seasons and that there has been a great miscommunication between the two parties. Of course, there is a selfishness issue on both sides. Brett believes he can still play at a very high level and the Packers believe it is time to give Aaron a shot and build for the future. It would seem like they could work this out, but apparently they could not. I must give credit to the Packers for at least offering Brett 20 Million Dollars to stay retired and not play for another team. However, Brett wanted to still play and he basically forced a trade to the New York Jets.

Here's the deal from my point of view. We all have to respect the history of the game and Brett is a living/playing legend. He has earned the right to decide when he wants to retire. The Packers and Brett should have communicated better and made a solid decision. Brett should have taken the business side of the game into consideration and realized that once he retired, the Packers had no choice but to move forward and prepare Aaron to take over as quarterback. It hurts both sides when one or both of the parties are wishey-washey.

At the end of the day, Brett gets a chance to continue to play and the Packers move forward with Aaron Rodgers as their starting quarterback which is what both sides actually wanted to do. Prayfully, everything works out for both Brett and the Packers.
