Brett Favre, who has just retired from the NFL after twenty seasons, believes his original club, the Green Bay Packers will win the Super Bowl this year.
Favre told ESPN that the Packers are by far the best team remaining in the NFL playoffs and that quarterback Aaron Rodgers (who once replaced Favre) “is the best QB and the receiving corps is the best ever, maybe.
Favre added that Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers and the defense “gets the MVP award at this stage.
The Packers face the Chicago Bears next weekend to determine the NFC championship, after having soundly defeated the Atlanta Falcons last week.
The last time the packers won a Super Bowl, in 1997 over the New England Patriots, Favre was their quarterback.
Favre left Green Back with much acrimony three years ago, and his recent unhappy excursions as a New York Jet and Minnesota Viking did much to tarnish what was otherwise a stellar Hall of Fame career.
He insists now that he carries no lingering bitterness over his departure from Green Bay in 2008.
I'm happy for them and very happy and content with my legacy, Favre told ESPN.
