A portion of an interview ESPN’s Jon Gruden did with Vikings quarterback Brett Favre aired this morning on “Sunday NFL Countdown,” the network’s pre-game show.

Gruden: “What do you say to all the Packers fans? They’ve got to be confused.”

Favre: “It was 16 great years. I hope they enjoyed it, they appreciated that run as much as I did. You can’t take that away. You just have to let it go and just move on.”
