Drawing First Blood
Favre, apparently, isn't the most decisive guy, flip-flopping all over the place following the 2007 season as he contemplated retirement.
The problem is, he wouldn't stop contemplating.
The Packers would eventually move on and trade him to the Jets, and Favre was none too pleased. Unfortunately, as the Jets didn't play the Packers that season, Favre would just have to wait to personally show the Packers he still had some fight left in him.
Then, in 2009, Favre was signed by the Vikings, and his opportunity would come.
Favre beat the Packers not once, but twice—both at home and in Lambeau.
You could argue that Favre should never have been in a position to have to get revenge, seeing as he probably would have been the Packers' starting quarterback for a couple more years if he just would have simply said, "I'm coming back."
But he didn't and would retire after finally looking his age in the 2010 season.
As for Favre's replacement, Aaron Rodgers, he would go on to beat the Vikings in both meetings the following year and win the Super Bowl.
At least Favre will always have those two games.
