Having grown up in Wisconsin, my family and I have always been die hard Packer fans. No matter what state we lived in, we remained "Packer Backers." When Farve took over as their Quarter-Back, we began following him as well. When he transferred to the New York Jets, we began watching Jets games as well as Packer games. But now he's a Viking! I can't help but feeling a disloyalty to the Packers if I start following the Vikings. I mean, the Vikings are to the Packers what the Joker is to Batman. What to do? I'm so conflicted.

Be grateful you don't live in Philidelphia.

No doubt. That would be like McNabb going to Dallas, GAK! I would NOT be rooting for Dallas, ever, ever.

Be thankful you're not a Bear fan.

Da Bears play without a real quarterback.

BTW a bona fide Cheesehead would know how to spell Favre.

I suggest throwing your TV in the trash thanks to the media never ever shutting up about drama queen Brett.

Just wish him well and remain a "Packer Backer"! It looks like Brett Favre may never retire, or we shouldn't believe him when he says he's doing so...

Andy, there's a position open that you may's chief of spelling police!

Yea, yeah, Maureen.

It's obvious he was already forgotten in the land of the Cheeseheads.

I've always enjoyed watching Favre. He's exciting, unpredictable and clearly loves the game. However, I don't want to see him when his performance goes downhill, mainly because I want to remember him playing at the top of his game. I can't imagine how hard it is to make the decision (the "I-really-mean-it-this-time" decision) to quit.

Even though I'm a Cowboys fan, I like watching most of the teams in the NFL and some really good position players. I don't know if this is anything like being a Packer/Favre fan, but I still liked watching Emmitt Smith when he played for the Arizona Cardinals.

I've watched a lot of NFL games over the years, and in many cases the QB was the 'hook' that drew me to a team. Exception being the Cowboys during the 70's, now those were the years -- Landry and the guys, there was a crispness, for lack of a better word, in each set-up. I still remember Bob Newhouse dragging defenders along as he ground out that extra couple of yards, "Golden" boy Richards and his flashy catches, the dreaded QB-sacking Ed "Too Tall" Jones, the powerhouse runningback Preston Pearson ... ah the memories.

When I was in the mood for a little unnecessary roughness, I'd watch a Raiders game

Pep and Colleen - you're both sooooo right about the 'Boys.

And I know this may not be the most appropriate place to put it but...

PUDGE IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a happy day in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Things just haven't felt right since he left.

Yes, Janice. PUDGE IS BACK!
(sorry to derail an NFL thread with baseball)...

Favre! Jeesh, I know that. When am I ever going to learn to stop posting on Salty until after I finish my morning coffee?

In addition to being an incredible QB, Favre is also a really nice guy. Once he was dining in a small town diner in Wisconsin. At one point during his meal his waitress approached him sheepishly. "I really hate to bother you, Mr. Favre, but some of my other tables are wondering if they could get your autograph." Favre amiably agreed that he would sign autographs for anyone who wanted one, for about $20 or so apiece, explaining that the money would go to a good cause. It didn't take long before word got around, and Favre spent the rest of his meal signing autographs for eager fans. He easily collected around $500 that night. As for the good cause? He gave all the money he collected from signing autographs that night to his waitress for her tip.
