Mike Holmgren was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame Saturday night.
He was asked about the rift between former quarterback Brett Favre and the Packers organization according to ESPNMilwaukee. Favre told Deion Sanders on NFL Network this week that he had no relationship with the Packers.
“I don’t know for sure. The only people that can answer that question, honestly, are the principals involved,” Holmgren said Friday. “I think every organization at some point … I shouldn’t say every, but there have been a few over the years, and at some point, you have to tell your star player or make a change with a great player who has been a great player for years for you, ‘Now we’re going younger, we’re going to give this younger guy a chance,’ or whatever you say to him.
“I think time has a way of healing most things. And I think time will fix this thing up,” Holmgren said. “Brett sent me really a nice text about tomorrow night, and I appreciated that, but for him, and I kind of understand where he’s coming from a little bit … I know how everyone would like to make this a better situation than it is right now, and it will be. In time, it will be. But right now, I guess it’s a little too close to the time.”
