Seattle Seahawks v Green Bay Packers

There has been talks for a while now of Brett Favre making a return to Lambeau Field to be honored and even get his jersey retired by the Green Bay Packers. It hasn't happened yet and there haven't been strong signs as of yet of it happening this season.

Much of the talk is that Favre is afraid of being booed by the fans. Favre played 16 seasons with the Packers, but spent the last few with the New York Jets and Green Bay arch-rival Minnesota Vikings, which hasn't gone too well with Packers fans.

Former Packers tight end Mark Chumra dropped a bombshell about Favre recently in an interview that the reason he backed out of a visit to Lambeau Field was because of the fear of being booed.

Favre responded to all of that talk on Monday.

"I've heard that was a concern of mine, and I'm here to tell you I'm not," he said. "I'm not worried about that. I'm well aware that you can't please everyone. Not everyone's going to like you regardless, and you know what, so be it. But I think the 16 years that I had in Green Bay speaks for itself.

"Yeah, you're right, I have played with other teams, but I will be remembered as a Packer. I feel that. I think the true Packer backers, which there are tons out there, feel the same way. I'm not the first player to play for other teams or rivals."

Favre wants to be remembered as a Packer when everything is said and done.

"As time goes by, that's how I will be remembered, as a Packer, and that's how I want to be remembered."

Hopefully Packers fans can forgive No. 4 at some point.
