Favre met with boos in return to Lambeau Field

GREEN BAY — Vikings quarterback Brett Favre ran into a half-full Lambeau Field at 2:37 local time for warmups and was met predominantly with boos by the Packers faithful, who once cheered him for the better part of his 16 seasons here.

There were a smattering of cheers, but he was hit mainly with a negative vibe right out of the tunnel. The chiding didn’t last for long, though. Once he settled in around the 35-yard line near the Vikings’ sideline and began throwing passes with Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson, most of the reaction turned toward the home team.

That reaction was far more favorable.
