Favre Continues To Mend Fences
Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre again went on a national stage to took the blame for leaving the Packers in “limbo” during his messy 2008 departure from the team. Favre told Sirius XM NFL that he should have never told them he was going to retire right after the 2007 season. He wanted to wait until just before training camp and now he knows the Packers couldn’t wait that long. He also said that he had his best 16 years in Green Bay and he expects Aaron Rodgers to break all of his records expect the consecutive games streak.
