Or even better, Farve throws so well they don't even use Peterson.
It was the clearest signal yet that the Packers will deal Favre to resolve the current stalemate. Green Bay, which has committed to Aaron Rodgers as its quarterback of the future, wants to keep Favre away from its NFC North rivals -- especially the Minnesota Vikings.
There were multiple reports Wednesday night that the team had offered to pay Favre up to $20 million to stay retired.
2 Tickets to the 1st MNF game of the season - $500
Gas from Minneapolis to Green Bay - $100
#4 Purple and Gold Jersey - $125
5 Cold ones at Lambeau - $30
Getting drunk and watching Brett and AP rock Green Bay on the night the #4 jersey was suppposed to be retired - Priceless

I just threw up in my mouth a little.
In the latest chapter of the drama that is Brett Favre and his pending return from retirement, the veteran passer has told reporters that he has every desire to play for the Minnesota Vikings and is now motivated by his wish to compete against his former employer, the Green Bay Packers, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. In a text message sent to the Journal, Favre states, "My intentions have been to play, and with Green Bay. They say no, so I still want to play in this division for obvious reasons, which I made clear to management. If they won't let me play in Green Bay, let me play against you. That's where I am."
