Brett Favre thinks Green Bay Packers are going to win Super Bowl XLV
Even though Brett Favre has been out of Green Bay since 2008, he is still a Green Bay Packer at heart.
Favre said on Monday that the Packers are “by far” the greatest team in the playoffs.
"[Packers quarterback] Aaron [Rodgers] is the best QB and the receiving corps is the best ever, maybe," Favre said in the e-mail. "But [defensive coordinator] Dom [Capers] and the defense gets the MVP award at this stage."
With Rodger coming out as a good starting quarterback, Favre was deemed expendable in Green Bay. On Saturday, the Packers quarterback took the team to a win over the Atlanta Falcons, 48-21. Even better is that the Packers were the underdogs in the game and
more than outscored the number one NFC seeded Falcons.
Favre officially filed for his retirement with the NFL on Monday after spending two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and one with the New York Jets. The 20 year veteran quarterback had originally retired after Rodgers was made the starting quarterback,
but came back to play again.
When he came back later in the same year, he was traded to the Jets. But Favre says that he has no grudges against the Packers, with whom he played as quarterback for 16 seasons.
"There is no bitterness. I'm happy for them and very happy and content with my legacy," said Favre.
Favre retired again in 2009 but then came back to play for the Packers’ rivals, the Vikings. His decision to go play for Minnesota alienated him from the fans who cheered him on at Lambeau Field.
Even so, the 41 year old quarterback believes that this is Green Bay’s year for the Super Bowl ring. If they do win, it will be their first since Favre and the Packers defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI way back in 1997.
"I think they will win it all! I hope they do, if you are wondering," Favre said in the e-mail.
