If you haven’t seen the hoopla surrounding Brett Favre you must be dead. I was certain that the New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons game would be the NFL tickets of the week. But I might be wrong. It seems I’ve been taken top task by some readers for not thinking that this Packers vs Vikings game would be the biggest game of the week. And they may be right.
It’s been a long time coming but Brett Favre returns to Lambeau Field this weekend to face the Green Bay Packers as the quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings. I think it would have been nice to see Favre return undefeated but the Pittsburgh Steelers denied us that. The feelings around Green Bay vary about Favre. Some fans will always love him. he did give the city a Super Bowl win. Others want to rip him limb from limb in retribution for what they see as his betrayal. Either way his reception is going to be huge. One way or another. and all Packers fans are united in wanting to send him home a loser.Eric Drouant
