Brett Favre’s days with the Packers are long gone and it appeared on Monday that the days of mutual respect and post-game marshmallow roasts between the Vikings and Packers may be coming to an end as well.

After spending 16 years of his career in Green Bay, Favre was traded to the Jets prior to the 2008 season and signed with the Vikings this past offseason with the intention of sticking it to the Packers, though he had no intention of starting a natural rivalry between the two Midwest teams.

“Even when I was with Green Bay, I used to love coming [to Minnesota],” Favre said after Monday’s game. “The fans made us feel right at home and no one even cared about the final score, just that the beer was cold and the players were happy. I guess I messed all that up by holding a grudge.”

Favre sunk his old team by throwing for 271 yards and three touchdowns against the Packers, who will look to return the favor when the Vikings visit Green Bay on November 1.
