Packers or Favre: Who makes call?
What's clear is that the Packers' 4-12 season took more of an emotional toll on Favre than a physical one. His mention of wondering if he'd want the ball on a two-minute drive was very defining. He's lost confidence, and he's lost confidence in his team being able to win.
That doubly damaging feeling didn't change during a late-week meeting with Thompson and McCarthy in Favre's native Mississippi. The Packers need their quarterback. If a healthy Favre couldn't do better than a four-win season for Green Bay, how much better could an inexperienced Aaron Rodgers do?
