Letters To Majik


Hey Don, I was just wondering if the Packers did acquire Terrell Owens do you think that Brett Favre could handle him? - Bill, Naperville, Ill.

Bill, there's no question that Brett Favre could handle him. The question is does any team want a self-centered player like T.O. on their team. As good as he is, there is no reason to think that he will ever change his attitude toward the game and his teammates. Thanks but no thanks!

Do you think Samkon Gado is for real? I love his speed and age to go along with his power. Thanks. - Jeff, Kansas City

Jeff, Samkon has had two fine games thus far. It looks like this kid might have the tools to be on the team long term.

The Packers are currently four games behind the division-leading Chicago Bears. With four divisional games left and two of them being against the Bears (who have a tough schedule ahead of them), what do you think the Packers' chances are of pulling off another NFC North championship? -Billy, Hutchinson, Kan.

Billy, if the Packers continue to play the way they did against the Falcons, they have a real shot at catching the Bears. It will be a very difficult task, but anything can happen.

Don, who besides Sterling Sharpe was the best receiver you played with? I have a soft spot for Jeff Query? - Pete, Milwaukee, Wis.

Pete, Query was a solid player and a great teammate, but Perry Kemp probably was probably a more experienced receiver who I threw to more.

Don, everyone knows that you wore No. 7, and all the pictures depict that. I happen to have a couple of pictures of you that were actually part of a series of Packers trading cards provided in loaves of Gardner's bread, and it shows you in the No. 5 jersey. I realize they made you change because it was Paul Hornung's jersey. But can you elaborate on that? I'm not sure anyone remembers you wore No. 5 at all. Thanks. - Dale, Beaver Dam, Wis.

Dale, I actually wore No. 5 my entire rookie season in 1987. It wasn't by choice; the Packers just issued it to me when I first came to the team. After I became the established starter in 1988, I requested to change to No. 7. I wanted my own identity and to pay to respect to Paul Hornung and the number he made famous.
