Senior writer jclombardi: QB Favre says Packers will win Super Bowl.
Favre predicts Packers will win Super Bowl: Legendary QB Favre insists he has “no bitterness” toward the Packers three years after leaving Green Bay on less than friendly terms. In fact, he told ESPN on Monday that he believes his former team will be the champions this year. “I think they will win it all! I hope they do, if you are wondering,” Favre said in an e-mail to ESPN reporter Ed Werder. Favre told Werder that he believes Green Bay is “by far” the best team still in the NFL 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.” Favre played 16 seasons for the Packers before retiring, then unretiring, then being traded to the New York Jets in 2008. Favre retired and unretired some more as he finished his career with the Minnesota Vikings. It was reported Monday that Favre had filed retirement papers with the NFL. “I’m happy for [the Packers] and very happy and content with my legacy,” Favre told Werder.
