That's what changed the football fortunes of this franchise.
Those men established and raised this franchise to new heights.
A lot of it is strictly media speculation. There are all kinds of names thrown out there. Ted (Thompson, Packers' general manager) has not given away any names whatsoever. He's just started the search. It's got a long way to go.
I think it sent a huge message to every free agent and particularly the African-Americans. I think it opened a lot of doors for us.
(Favre) hasn't told me personally, and I had lunch with Mike and Ted earlier (Friday), and he hadn't told them anything, either, as of noon, anyway.
I always said the calendar was working in our favor. If he was going to (retire), he would have told us in January.
