Did the Packers sign Nall just for Favre?


Yes. Nall was not with the team last year when McCarthy and his high-octane offense arrived – so arguments that Nall already knew the system don’t really fly. Arguments that Nall knows the Green Bay culture well and cold-weather play well are decent, but not adequate. I think the only real reason Nall was brought back was because he’s a good friend of Favre’s (hunting buddy etc). Let’s face it, he’s not a steal of a pick-up for anyone (as evidenced by Nall being cut by several teams). I’m sure there were other QBs sitting out there who at the very least could have brought more potential to the table. But why do that when Rodgers should be OK to back Favre up going forward (until Rodgers gets another Paul Molitor-like injury) and Nall has a good connection with our most important player? I think this was an intentional signing just for Favre and a smart one psychologically.
