      I agree. Brett was the man there. He made them what they are today. I have to say that Rodgers is great, but he's not Brett. It's still odd for me to be a Jets fan, but I am. My son still has his Packers 4 jersey. We put it up to keep. He's wanting a Jets jersey for Christmas or an Eli Manning one. I want to add too that the pics you have of Brett are great! I love him! Hard not to. And I have to brag he's from my state!! Love that too!!! I hate the deal that happened that he's not a Packer anymore, but I will always be loyal to him. I shed more than my share of tears during the press conference he gave when he retired. I'm glad to see him out on the field again though.

      It's weird but since Brett Favre is gone we don't watch the Packers like we use to. Good hub.
