So, who was the winner? Certainly not Brat Favre

GREEN BAY, WIS. – The Green Bay Packers handled a difficult situation beautifully. Brett Favre handled it like a thin-skinned child and ultimately lost because he pouted his way out of Green Bay and then couldn’t whine his way to Minnesota, the NFC North or even the NFC.

Had Favre been as clear-minded and mature as Packers General Manager Ted Thompson, he’d be on Clarke Hinkle Field today, competing with Aaron Rodgers for the Packers’ starting quarterback job, which he would have won. Instead, he’s a 38-year-old New York Jet who’s late to camp, unfamiliar with the AFC East and trying to learn a new offense for the first time in 17 years.
