The Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers are in Dallas for the 2011 Super Bowl and the topic of conversation has been, for the most part, about the game. The Ben Roethlisberger redemption story isn't much of a story since he's not saying much on the topic and there aren't any other significant story lines developing.
Except Brett Favre. Of course his name has to be involved anytime a major media contingent is involved. Packers GM Ted Thompson spoke to reporters during Tuesday's Media Day and was asked about none other than Brett Favre.
"Brett is a very important part of the Packers' history and he will be embraced by the Green Bay Packers. The other part is that we've moved on from him"
"We've moved on from that a long time ago. There's a lot of difficulties you go through in this job and that was one of them."
No doubt, Favre is going to be a story line this week. He was replaced by QB Aaron Rodgers who is now leading the Packers to the Super Bowl. It's clear, though, that the Packers don't want to talk about any Favre-related topics. The company line this week: "We've moved on."
