GREEN BAY, WIS. -- Former Packers defensive lineman Gilbert Brown just met with the media assembled here at Lambeau Field for the Packers Hall of Fame induction.

As Brown reminded reporters, he is a man of few words. So his reaction to the standoff between the Packers and Brett Favre was pretty predictable.

"All I know is tonight is Gilbert Brown, Frank Winters, Al Treml," Brown said, referring to tonight's trio of inductees. "That's all I care about. The three guys going in."

Pressed on the issue, Brown said he hasn't had time to think about Favre's situation.

"All I've had time to think about is what I'm doing," Brown said. "Everyone can't sit around thinking about everyone else. I'm a grown man, too. He put his pads on just like me. I ain't got time to worry about him."
