The big question leading up to Sunday’s game between the Packers and Vikings at Lambeau Field was how the fans would receive Brett Favre. We got a sense before the game because Favre was booed during warmups, but the most severe reaction from the fans was reserved for the actual game. Listen to the audio and video of Brett Favre getting booed by Packers fans and see his reaction:
You could tell that Favre was hurt by the negative reaction from the fans and that it bruised his ego. He may have walked out of the game with four touchdown passes and a win on the scoreboard, but I still think he’s the loser. Whether it’s late in the regular season or not until the NFC Championship game, Favre is going to let his team and fans down eventually. And what does he get out of all of this, a little revenge in his childish game? The only winners here are the TV networks who got tremendous ratings boosts and possibly Brad Childress if he gets a contract extension because of a successful regular season. Honestly Brett, what did you really think would happen after you told the fans you wanted to come back and stick it up their bleeps? Favre is still the loser in the end, no doubt about it.
