Packers Could Finally Face a Favre-less Future

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- If things keep heading the way they are right now, Sunday's 31-3 dismissal of the division rival Minnesota Vikings could be a milestone for the Green Bay Packers.

It might be the last time they ever have to face former quarterback Brett Favre -- or deal with the attention those matchups bring.

When asked about the possibility of being permanently rid of Favre-related drama, a curt answer from Packers coach Mike McCarthy provided some insight into just how stale the storyline has become to the people who work at Lambeau Field.

He said: "I'm rid of it."
