Thanksgiving is always a special day around the USA, and football fans have much to look forward to this year. That is even more true for Green Bay Packers fans, who will get to experience something extra-special on Thursday evening.

Brett Favre's return to Lambeau is the big storyline, but this will be the first (and possibly the only) opportunity for all three of the Packers' great signal-callers to meet at the same place at the same time.
