Point of no Return?

The bond between Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers appears to be broken beyond repair.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday evening that after approximately six hours of what he called ``brutally honest'' conversations with Favre over the past two days, the three-time MVP just isn't in the right mind-set to be part of the team.

Even with the chance to win his starting job back potentially on the table, McCarthy said Favre couldn't seem to get past emotional wounds that were opened as tensions mounted in recent weeks.

Oddsmakers seem to be in a flux about the Packers’ chances this season with Aaron Rodgers as the starting quarterback. Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have established the Packers’ chances of winning the 2009 Super Bowl at 25/1.

The question appears to be whether or not Green Bay’s odds will change if Favre returns under center for the Pack in 2008. As of right now, Rodgers is the starter and the Packers remain long shots. But if Favre returns, their odds could rise.

A return to Green Bay doesn’t seem likely, however.

``The football team's moving forward,'' McCarthy said. ``The train has left the station, whatever analogy you want. He needs to jump on the train and let's go. Or, if we can't get past things that have happened, I have to keep the train moving.''
