Isn't it funny how you adjust to that which was once unthinkable? For example, two years ago, when Brett Favre was leading the Packers to a 13-3 record, it would have been unthinkable to see Favre and Aaron Rodgers on the same Pro Bowl Roster just two years later. The notion would have been unthinkable because you couldn't consider Favre in another jersey, let alone in the Viking's purple. But there they are: Drew Brees, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. Given Favre's recent history with the Pro Bowl, and especially given Rodgers' presence on the roster, I'm guessing Favre will skip it, which will mean a bit more playing time for Rodgers, most likely.
Overall, I agree with the Green Bay Press Gazette's Pete Dougherty, all the Packers on the roster deserve to be there and the only missing Packer with any real beef is LB Clay Matthews. I disagree with Dougherty on this though; it's a bigger beef than he thinks. Matthews has been all world. The Vikings led the way with 8 players and quite frankly I think they do have more talent than the Packers. Yet, it's still possible they'll finish with the same record(though unlikely). Consider this; if the Giants do manage to beat the Vikings, the upgrade from Tarvaris Jackson to Brett Favre will have resulted in one additional regular season win, although odds are Favre will carry the Vikes deeper into the playoffs than Jackson did. If he doesn't, it'll be interesting to see what impact there is on Childress for pushing so hard to get Favre.
And one more zinger for you Favre first fans: Double digit wins, the playoffs and the pro-bowl: tell me again how keeping Favre was our best chance for "winning now?" You might want to check the calendar; it's now right now.
