Healing the rift between the Green Bay Packers fanbase and the franchise’s all-time leading passer Brett Favre has been slow, but the NFL legend will be back in his former home for the first Packers-related event since his retirement (and un-retirement and retirement and un-retirement again).
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Favre is heading back to Green Bay to pay tribute to another former Packers quarterback, Bart Starr, who is being honored at an event in Green Bay today. Starr is recovering from a stroke and is unable to attend the event. According to Mortensen, Favre has no plans to attend tonight’s Falcons-Packers game at Lambeau Field.
Favre is the Packers all-time leader in wins, completions, attempts, yards, TDs, INTs, 4th quarter comebacks and game-winning drives. He went to 9 Pro Bowls and was a 6-time All-Pro with the Packers. He is also the NFL’s all-time leader in completions, attempts, yards, total offense, INTs, games started and fumbles.
