Favre Admits Role in Split with Packers

Write this date down, because it is the day that Brett Favre finally admits he was mostly at fault for the split between him and the Green Bay Packers.

As we reported two weeks ago, current Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wants the organization to kiss and make up with Favre so they can retire his number. Well, apparently that has softened Favre's stance toward the Packers.

In an interview with a Green Bay radio station this week, Favre mostly blames himself for the split.

”I feel that both sides had a part in it" said Favre."If you could go back, would I or them have done things differently? I’m sure both sides would. But you can’t."

“Aaron has said some very nice things. He and I have a good relationship” Favre continued. “I had a chance to present an award with him at the Super Bowl and that was for real. It wasn’t for show. And so I think everything will be fine.

“I don’t know of any player who would not want that to happen (about having his number retired). I’m honored just by the thought. Obviously there was, if you want to call it, ‘bad blood’ or whatever, I just think that people started picking sides. And really I’m over that and have been over it.”

Well, at least Favre knows how to kiss a little ass after the fact, knowing he owes Aaron Rodgers a great deal of thanks for saving his image in Green Bay, because it didn't seem like the Packers were even close to retiring his number.

But at least now, Favre can do what he should have done years ago ... and that's pass the torch onto Rodgers.
