I was talking to a Green Bay Packers fan the other day and he was lamenting the success of Brett Favre in Minnesota.

It will only get worse this week as the Packers visit Favre and his new purple teammates at the Metrodome on Monday Night Football on ESPN in five days. Favre played for the Packers for 16 seasons and now he is leading their hated rival.

In my conversation with the Packers fan, we equated it to if John Elway ending up playing for the Raiders after initially retiring from the Broncos. I think that is the closest comparison we have in the AFC West to the Favre saga.

It’s a sobering thought, isn’t it, Denver fans? As we prepare for the first Favre-Packers pairing, I want to hear thoughts from Denver fans on how they’d feel if Elway ended up in Oakland. Also, If there are any other AFC West scenarios that would bother you let me know by filling the comment section.
