Brett Favre on reconciling with the Packers: ‘I know that day will come’

The day will soon come when Brett Favre and the Packers decide to play nice. The way their relationship ended was obviously less than ideal, but time heals all. When you consider the fact that Favre played 16 seasons with the Packers and brought Green Bay a Super Bowl, it would be crazy to think the feud will last forever.

During a recent interview with ESPN’s Mike Tirico, Favre sounded open to making the way his relationship ended with the team a thing of the past.

“I know that day (will come),” Favre said according ESPNMilwaukee.com. “How that will unfold, I have no idea when that will happen. I don’t think their side is thinking about it. They’re trying to figure out how to get back to the Super Bowl, and really I’ve got my plate full. I think that’s good for both sides, not that we don’t need to shake hands and move on. I think in some ways that has happened, but you know, I do see the day, it’s going to happen. When? I have no idea.

“You look at Lambeau Field and where that place has gone and how it’s evolved, I can’t help but feel a sense of being a part of that. And so, even though it’s a shame the way things went down between I and the Packers, as time goes by, you just kind of, it’s kind of like a grudge, you just kind of get over it.”

Back in July, Favre gave an indication that he was ready to move on when he praised Aaron Rodgers and talked about what a well-rounded player he is. Prior to that, the Packers said they would probably wait a year or two before retiring Favre’s jersey just to let some of the bitter feelings pass.

The bottom line is Favre loves attention, so he’s not going to be able to resist accepting any type of offer the Packers might make to honor him. Although he became an annoying drama queen over the past few years, Favre probably deserves recognition for his remarkable career.

H/T Game On!

    I agree.  The hatchet certainly needs to be buried.  As soon as Favre apologizes, both sides can move forward and decide when and how to retire his number and add him to the ring of honor.
