Some Quick Notes on the Favre Fallout

The Favre retirement is of course being covered to saturation in the sports media, but here are some indirect consequences of Favre hanging it up.

-A strange development: Green Bay is entertaining the thought of signing Trent Green. Yes, that Trent Green. Not a great vote of confidence in Aaron Rodgers, who did well in the one game last season where he had extensive playing time.

-Favre's retirement increases the chances that Jason Taylor will stay in Miami, as the formerly most likely trade partner will be less willing to give up a high draft pick to put the team over the top. Of course, Parcells had shot down rumors that Taylor was on the trading block, but not everybody has bought this.
