My Thoughts on Brett's Retirement
One thing I feel for certain. Coach McCarthy & GM Thompson may not have been pushing Brett out the door, but from day one you could tell they were not going to bend over backwards to keep him around. I can understand this, after all they knew Brett was at the end of his QB career and to tie the future of the Packers to Brett would not be a good idea.
I do believe the talk about Moss. In hindsight I wish Randy would have come to town I believe Vince's legacy would have returned to Green Bay had the Packers had Randy Moss. No one believed Andre Rison was a model citizen or was going to be a Packer for more than one season, but his coming to Green Bay was critical to the Packer's getting to and winning Super Bowl XXXI. It would have been a lot better way to leave with Brett hoisting the Vince Lombardi trophy than the way it ended.
