Packers GM Thompson has "no objections" to team retiring Brett Favre's number

In an article recently published in USA Today, Packers GM Ted Thompson said that he has "no objections" to the team retiring Brett Favre's number. 

"The man played for a very long time here and he was a marvelous, marvelous football player," Thompson said. "A good person in the community, he and his wife. I think he means a lot to the Packers for Brett Favre to be remembered in a good light, and I have no objections at all. I'm thrilled."

I'm 100% with Thompson on this. Favre played for the team for 16 seasons and was easily one of the best players in the franchise's history. It's time for the fans to accept that he's still a Packer and deserves to have his iconic #4 retired.
