John Crist: Our long national nightmare is over. Brett Favre is no longer a Green Bay Packer. Your first career interception came against Favre at Lambeau Field, if I remember correctly. What's it going to be like playing the Packers and all of a sudden No. 4 isn't back there?
Danieal Manning: It don't matter who else they have back there. I'm just looking forward to playing the Packers and whooping up on them again. I don't care who lines up at quarterback. And, honestly, I'm glad that it's finally over. I think it was a good deal for both Brett and the Packers. I guess they found out what they wanted, and they went their separate ways.
