Coach Lombardi coached the Green Bay Packers from 1959-1967. He CHOSE to retire, but a year later, he CHOSE to coach the Washington Redskins.
Result? The Super Bowl trophy is named after Coach Lombardi.
Coach Holmgren coached the Green Bay Packers from 1992 to 1998. He CHOSE to leave the Packers and he CHOSE to coach the Seahawks.
Result? A Green Bay street is named after Coach Holmgren.
Quarterback Bret Favre played for the Packers from 1992 to 2007…bringing them many victories and even a Super Bowl title. He WANTED to play for the Packers forever, but THEY REFUSED TO LET HIM. So, in order to play football, he had to go to another team. This time, the Minnesota Vikings CHOSE Favre!
Result? Favre is villified by some Green Bay fans and media.
Can anyone see the hypocrisy of criticizing a man who just wants to play football? I can. I say, “Good luck , Favre!”
And, I raise my glass to you in a toast….Skoal!!!
