Packers Hall of Fame making announcement about Brett Favre on Monday

Packers fans are reportedly starting to book hotel rooms for 2016 in Canton, Ohio so that they can see former Packers quarterback Brett Favre enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but it looks like they may have another ceremony closer to home in 2015 to help them bide their time.

The Packers and the Packers Hall of Fame are making a joint announcement regarding Favre on Monday afternoon. Packers CEO Mark Murphy and Packers chairman emeritus Bob Harlan are expected to speak with Favre joining by phone.

While they didn’t tip their cap to the nature of the announcement, we’d expect it involves Favre joining the other Packer greats already enshrined in the institution. Favre’s entry would make for a splashy way to reopen the Packers Hall, which is currently being renovated with a planned reopening in 2015.

There could also be an announcement about retiring Favre’s No. 4. Murphy said earlier this year that such a ceremony would not happen this year and added that Favre “wouldn’t want to come back to get booed.” Favre responded by saying that he isn’t worried about that because he’s “well aware” that you can’t please everyone all of the time and perhaps that bumped the timeline up for his return to the Packers fold.

    Packers Hall of Fame in 2015 – I still think the number retirement won’t be until next season. But if it is this year, it will be the November Bears night game which is a Green Bay season ticket holder game. Not the Vikings Thursday night game which is a Milwaukee season ticket holder game.

    Brett Favre should retire with the more historic NFL team.

    Which is the Minnesota Vikings.

    18 NFC North Titles > 11

    We created the game, as you know it.

    They will put up the pic he sent jen. The ensuing laughter will ease the booing.

  9. poorcalvinisstuckonthecrappylions says: Aug 3, 2014 9:01 PM

    pftpoet, everytime you won those 18 NFC North titles your team choked and couldn’t advance. That’s worse that not going to the playoffs in my book.

    Why the Viking’s fans feel it necessary to talk trash about the Packers and the Bears on a consistent basis I don’t understand, but you guys love to make your fan base look ridiculous.

    You’re team is the embarrassment of the NFC North since you came into the league. Win something or at least finish ahead of the Bears/Packers/Lions and then talk….

    When Bert made Paul Allen shriek “This is not Detroit, man, this is the Superbowl!!!!!”, that’s when you knew he was still on the Packer payroll.

    Thanks Bert!

    I really thought he was playing for the Vikings until he threw that pick to Tracy Porter. That’s when I knew his true loyalty was in Green Bay. He played there so that we could watch degenerate Vikings fans suffer another indignity.

  15. unbridledsexy says: Aug 3, 2014 9:06 PM

    It’s time. Favre brought that team back into relivance. I understand being upset about him going to the Vikes, (he brought that team back to relivance as well), but the man deserves a warm welcome for not only the Super Bowl win, but for bringing some of the greatest moments in football to Greenbay. He’s the reason I fell in love with the game, and I’m not even a Packers fan. Induct him and cheer him all the way.

    Good God can you just put away the Vikings & Packers contempt for one thread?

    I’m a Vikings fan, living in the state of MN and know how heated it gets, but you have to respect the man for what he did on the field in Green Bay and his first season in MN.

    Yeah, he went to the enemy for two seasons, get over it already and celebrate what the man did for Green Bay during his career. He is a HOF quarterback, there is no disputing that.

    No matter how much hate there is between team fans, let the guy have his moment.

  24. filthymcnastyi says: Aug 3, 2014 9:21 PM

    Packer rubes are the only ones in the entire league who bring up the irrelevant pre-merger “championships.”

    They need to retire his number in the game vs the Vikings on October 2nd. Makes too much sense not for that to happen. Of course, they could wait until November.

  28. gbfanforever says: Aug 3, 2014 9:25 PM

    Who are the clowns that still don’t understand that when a player goes into the HOF, their bust does not signify a team. You don’t go into the hall as a member of any team.

    Favre will give the longest retirement speech in HOF history-to once again steal the spotlight from his fellow enshrinees.He should have Tebow introduce him-a fellow media hog.

  33. whatjusthapped says: Aug 3, 2014 9:35 PM

    I love the fact that the last time he held a football in a NFC Championship game, he threw an INT and with it, the entire hopes of the Viking faithful that they would ever get to another Superbowl.

    It was a devastating INT because the Viking’s never fully recovered from it, to this day, they are still looking for a Qb and by the looks of it, that search will continue for many years to come.

    Because this graphic addresses NFL championships I have to state it is incorrect.The Vikings in 1969 actually won the last NFL championship prior to the AFL-NFL merger in 1970.As for world championships yes we have yet to win one.just a point of clarification

  38. packerlex says: Aug 3, 2014 10:17 PM

    Tomtomdotcomison,
    The NFL does not recognize, in its record book, the Vikings’ 1969 league championship as an NFL title since it lost the super bowl to the Chiefs. Same thing with the Colts’ one of 1968. It also does not recognize the Chiefs’ 1966 and Raiders 1967 AFL championships as “league” championships either.

    The larger point here is that 13 times the Packers went as far as a team can go. The Vikings have never done that.

  39. wafflestomp says: Aug 3, 2014 10:19 PM

    Only a Viking fan would try and make their Super Bowl loss into some kind of Championship victory. SMH

  41. bridgeh2o says: Aug 3, 2014 10:29 PM

    Our little brother, the packers, need to look at us for class.

    It is unforgivable that arguably the 2 largest figures in packer history-Lombardi and Favre, were uncermoniously “fired”…….err, shown the door out of gbay.

    Lombardi left gbay in dispute as well as Favre.

    The 2 legends treated like dirt.

    Stay classy gbay!!!!!!

  42. bridgeh2o says: Aug 3, 2014 10:31 PM

    That will be weird for Favre to be enshrined in gbay WITH A VIKING JERSEY ON!!!!!!!

  43. csbanter says: Aug 3, 2014 10:31 PM

    The ride that Packers fans had with Favre is unforgettable. Aaron Rodgers may lead this team to another SB ,for me Favre will always be top dog Packers QB. He accomplished so much its not even debatable.

  44. codythao35 says: Aug 3, 2014 10:33 PM

    Favre just realizes Packer is the most pathetic franchise in NFL history and didn’t want to be inducted as a cheese head. Losers in WI didn’t want to acknowledge it. Sharper is a good role model to lead them losers. Loving it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have Driver and Favre retire their numbers together, that’d quiet any boo birds in the audience.

    When will PFT step up and get rid of the trolls on all their articles? There’s no reason for MN trolls to post on GB article, or vice versa.

    Florio, Alpner, Wilkening, and everyone else responsible for this blog should be ashamed of themselves for letting this childish behavior to perpetuate for as long as it has. Enough is enough.

    I don’t think so. “As time goes by, that’s how I will be remembered — as a Packer — and that’s how I want to be remembered,” Favre said in ESPN 1000 interview.

  54. banky74 says: Aug 3, 2014 10:59 PM

    Wow.. An article about Favre and 2/3 of the posts are about Packer fans slinging mud at Minnesota fans.

    I realize the Packer fans have absolutely nothing going on in that cultureless black hole known as Green Bay, but I would think you’d want to talk about Favre, not your neighbors to the west that provide all the good jobs.

    As an aside, Green Bay news stations are saying that the Monday announcement is going to be that Favre wants to enter the hall of fame as a Viking.

    Ummm, no, Lombardi was not shown the door. He was given an ownership interest in Washington, and he wanted to get back into coaching. He left on his own.

  56. vikingcheesegrater says: Aug 3, 2014 11:34 PM

    It’s pathetic that a guy who did what Favre did for the Packers should have to put up with all this game playing. Favre is the greatest Packer of all time. He’s going into the NFL Hall of Fame no matter what the Packers organization or their disloyal fans think about it. The Packer hall of fame is a minor issue for someone of Favre’s accomplishments.

  57. johnwirth says: Aug 3, 2014 11:37 PM

    My mistake – since Favre became the starter, the record has been 25-20-1 Packers. Still a Packers win.

  58. skunkgoosefly says: Aug 4, 2014 12:21 AM

    I think the Packers had to remodel their hall fame because of the Fave shrine they were building in there. Does anyone else recall that display they had going up a while ago? I could be wrong. Is it in there, or did they change their mind about it?

  59. pongonfl says: Aug 4, 2014 1:53 AM

    Sigh,
    its easy, the Packers knew they could not let Rodgers go and they would have had to let him go if Farve played the rest of his career at Green Bay.

    Hasn’t the out come validated both parties position and what a strange situation they were in?

    He was way to good to fire, way to good to retire and way to important to trade. But they had to make a spot for Rodgers to play or lose him.
    By leaving, Brett took one for that team.

    Thank you Brett for the SB pass to Bad Moon Rison. Thanks for your contagious joy for the game. Thank you for bringing so much fun and pride back to title town. None of us are perfect, all of us need forgiveness. Welcome back to the Packer family were you belong.
