WARDROBE MALFUNCTION? Meanwhile, Brett Favre's Friday request to the Packers to grant him an unconditional release places EA with the possibility of an unprecedented occurrence in which the current "Madden" cover athlete is wearing a different uniform than the one on the game. Packers GM Ted Thompson said Saturday he would not release Favre or allow him to return as a starter, and numerous published reports over the weekend speculated on potential trades. "We're still assessing what all this means for us. But Brett Favre is still an icon, and we'd love to see him play this season," said EA Sports spokesman David Tinson.
