yes that was part of it. just like favre was forced out of greenbay but the difference is marino knew it was a bad idea to go to another team like favre did. it's best to accept when your skills have diminished but yes you're right. if he's not forced out he would've played at least another season in miami. which by the way i would've liked because i hate the way his last season ended in that playoff against the jaguars. horrible game!
I don't think that Favre was forced out as much as he forced GB's hand with his indecision. In hindsight, GB may have been right, and they will be a better team this year from Rodgers' year of experience.
