Green Bay Packers, Brett Favre are mending fences

The NFL lived through one of the ugliest divorces in its history in 2008, as Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers parted ways in a bitter feud over his return from retirement. Favre hasn’t stepped foot in Green Bay since his latest retirement following the 2010 season.

However, in an interview on SiriusXM Satellite radio on Thursday, Favre hinted that the feud may be close to coming to an end. According to Rob Demovsky of, Favre made it clear that he is working things out with the Packers front office.

As for that game to come back to, many thoughts come to mind. However, for a Packers legend to be honored, there may be no better time to execute that than against the Chicago Bears in Lambeau Field. Green Bay plays host to its bitter rivals on Sunday, November 9; and it also happens to be a Sunday Night, nationally-televised contest as well.

Not only is it about the rivalry, but the fact that Favre basically owned the Bears over his career. He compiled a 22-10 career record against Chicago. However, no indication of which game he could be honored at has been given.

Regardless of what game, it appears that the long awaited return of one of the most popular and polarizing figures in Packers history could actually happen.
