Put Packers great Paul Hornung on the list of non-Brett Favre fans these days. The 73-year-old Hornung spoke recently at the Marshview Conservation Club’s 10th annual sports banquet, and said that he thinks the next Brett Favre sideshow in Minnesota is going to turn out bad, and he’s even willing to bet on it.
“(Favre) ain’t going to win in Minnesota,” Hornung told the crowd on Tuesday night. “I’ll bet on it.”
Hornung is a friend of Favre, but seems to hold the belief that the veteran QB is not going to be the gunslinger that Packer fans had come to know and love over the years when he puts on the purple of the Vikings. Seems that everyone wants to weigh in on Favre, those that bleed Packer green, and those that don’t.
We shall see soon enough is Hornung is right with his prediction.
