On Brett Favre: It is time for the Packers to gracefully let him move on

I have been a Packer fan since I was a kid and my dad taught how to follow pro football (real football, not soccer) starting with the 1972 season were the Pack won the central division. It was a long drought until the fun 1989 season!

The Favre drama is distressing.

The way I see it, he had until draft day, to seriously come back as Packer.

He is the past. He is old and will not improve physically. He is no longer the stretch QB or cold weather QB he used to be.

It is time for the Packers to move on.

It is time to move on, but to not destroy the Packer-Favre relationship.

The Packers should trade for a 1st round draft pick to any other non-conference rival team that Gavre agrees to. If he is really set on going to a conference rival (aka the Vikings), we should get a 1st and two 3rds as compensation.

Favre can move on. In a few years (after he retires again after this season), the Packers canretire his jersey and induct him into the Packer hall of fame. His season as a non-packer can be forgiven and forgotten. After all, even Saint Lombardi went on to coach for the Redskins.
