On Saturday, Brett Favre's induction into the Packers Hall of Fame went off about as well as anyone could have imagined. Then on Sunday, Favre and many of his old teammates joined a group of fellow former NFL players for their charity flag football game at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.

Meanwhile, one Packers writer is previewing the start of training camp by looking at the players who will be most critical for the team this season. Oh, and for a little unrelated fun, there's metal-on-metal combat in here as well. Enjoy!
