I did not realize that a college newspaper could be biased when it comes to sports, especially when the team is not even in the same state. It has been three seasons since Brett Favre has played with the Green Bay Packers.

Starting the article out to “The Green Bay Packers don’t need Brett Favre” shows a lack of professional journalism. After three long years, shouldn’t the days of comparing Aaron Rodgers to Favre be over? Rodgers may have gotten Superbowl MVP but we have yet to see three AP MVP awards like that of Favre. (Referring to the picture caption in the printed edition.)

To take a shot at Brett Favre in this article not only is ignorant but also degrades from the hard work that this Green Bay Packer team put into the season. We are looking at two completely different teams from 2007 to 2010, not just different quarterbacks.

Do not disregard the great feats Favre accomplished in his tenure at Green Bay, just because he has been caught up in the media. Do not forget he did win 3 MVP titles and holds practically every record in the book. Rodgers is a great quarterback and has a great future ahead of him in the league. But please keep the comparisons to Favre to when Rodgers has played for 20 years as well, and when he can also be compared to other great quarterbacks such as Marino, and Elway.

There will only be one Brett Favre. Don’t try to replace him.
