Packers address Favre at meeting
The reception could be a sign many fans are backing the way the Packers handled their indecisive ex-quarterback.
Speaking to about 7,500 shareholders of the NFL's only publicly owned franchise, Murphy praised the way the team handled Favre's unretirement drama and subsequent trade. Afterward, he reiterated a pledge to retire Favre's jersey eventually.
Murphy says the Packers are moving on, expressing optimism about this season and concerns about the economy and labor issues.
