Watching the situation in Green Bay unfold, I realize the Green Bay Packers have their own version of the Kobayashi Maru unfolding. It's a no-win situation all around and for everyone involved.
Should Favre come back to the Packers and have a year like the two before last year's career year, it will tarnish his legacy.
Favre's return could divide not only the fans but the team as a whole. You've got a new offense being put in around new QB Aaron Rodgers and his strengths and abilities.
Do you really think Brett Favre will be a back-up? And if he is, how many snaps into the pre-sesaon before Packer fans are demanding Favre be put into the game?
If you trade Favre, you run the risk of him beating you in the regular season or playoffs.
There is really no good comprimise to this situation. I'm not a big Packer fan, but I do like the team and what Brett Favre brought to the team and the league. It's a shame to see him putting that good will and his potential legacy on the line with this. I wonder which side will blink first in this game of chicken...
