He's "retired", but if they call next year and need him, he's planted the seed for a comeback. I honestly think it will be hard for the Packers to move forward 100% away from Favre while Favre still lingers in the shadows.
If this was any other QB, it wouldn't be a story, but Brett Favre has been the Packers forever. I don't think there's any easy passing of the torch, especially with an icon like Favre.
Slam dunk HOF, IMO.
From the Packers end, if they tank and Rogers either is injured or they decide he isn't the future of the franchise, what would be better than having a future HOFer/fan favorite ready to come in and take the helm for the remainder of the season to keep the fans from going into a full riot? I see your point that the Packers need to get away from having him as a fall back option. That would seem to be entirely in their control though. Simple solution, don't ask him to come back. Its up to them to commit to the future without Favre and I don't think Favre will be too unhappy if they do move on. We'll see in the future. It will be rough for a couple years more than likely, but I think they will be ok. The question will be can this team find a new identity without Brett and how will they replace his leadership.
