Am I the only one who thinks Favre is an attention whore? I'm sick of hearing he's a true warrior because he always wants to unretire and play again. To me, he sounds like a 14 year old teenage girl who can't make up her mind as to which shirt she wants to buy. Make a fucking decision and stick to it. I'm excited the NFL just started their summer camps but the only thing I'm hearing about is if Favre is coming back. It not all about you Brett.....MAKE UP YOUR FUCKING MIND.

The guy retired early and made a mistake and instead of bitching about it he should just take his lashes. I mean did he really expect to just walk right back into the starting job in GB? Hey Favre you stupid fuck you made a mistake and now it's time for you to pay. Sit on the sidelines and hold the clip board you stupid red neck. Who knows maybe if Rodgers stinks up the place you can step in, but until then just shut up and take your punishment.

Why?

 

 

 

 

 

Thing is, Green Bay doesn't want him because the backlash in Green Bay of Favre sitting on the bench and Rogers starting would be huge. It would be a huge circus and Green Bay is trying to move on. I agree with them that they need to cut ties with him and I understand not wanting to release him so he can sign with Minny, but they should have been working on a trade for a while instead of playing games. Both parties have been acting like children and it needs to get resolved. Favre has the right to come back, and the Pack have the right to force him to honor his contract. favre needs to respect where the Packers are coming from and the Packers need to get a deal done for him. Trade him to the Bucs or Jets or whoever already.

In a competitive NFC east where getting to the playoffs will be the most difficult task in the NFC and of course our team resides, I am all for a good team starting a young QB for the first time. This can only help us because there is no way that teams wins 13 games again with a first year starting QB. I am glad the Packers are making this decision. Favre at 38 for 2009 is still better for that team than any QB not named Manning or Brady.

 

I think its great, the Packers do not want to bring him back because they know that he would beat Rogers out.

 

Pack wins 9 games tops with Rogers at the helm.

Favre has and obligation in my opinion to be straight

with the Packers. He has put them in a very difficult

position. There was no reason for this to happen yet

it did because this man cant make his mind up and

is holding this team hostage.

 

The packers need to move foward and Farve in essence

wont let them. The packers did not create this mess but

Favre did. So what brett really wants is to play for greenbay

which keeps the team from moving foward or he wants a big pay day

from a team that can compete for a title.

 

I will say this much Skip Bayless on ESPN 1st and 10 called this.

He said Brett would be back and sure enough its happening.

 

If I were the Packers I would trade him just to let the fans

know the Packers as and organziation are bigger than

Brett Favre the attention whore. I agree he is milking this now!

 

Go out with some class for gods sake and do more jeans commericals!!!

It's not a question of the Packers not bringing him back. For 3 years he has hinted at retirement. When he "retired" this time, they made a commitment to Rodgers for which they are absolutely right to do. If he hadn't committed to retirement, then I'm sure the Packers wouldn't have decided to go with Rodgers, Favre would have been allowed to come to training camp as the starter and everything would have been hunky dory right now. And didn't Brady win close to 13 games in his first year as a starter.

 

The media and Favre are making the packers look like the bad guys here, but Thompson has the responsibility to protect the club and he's right IMO. Favre to me is behaving like a jackass. He put them in a terrible position. I hope he goes to the fucking Jets, see if he gets close to 9 games with that lot.

A couple of weeks ago, the Packer actually released that they did, in fact, give Favre a chance to change his mind before the draft. Went so far as to go down to MS to talk with him. He decided to stay retired, and the Packers drafted accordingly.

 

This is all on Favre.

The league also has something at stake here, players faking retirement to change teams. Why would players not "retire" with a year left on their contract and the expectation of being released, effectivly creating a end of career free-agent market.

 

I think Green Bay should bite the bullet and eat his salary for the season, maybe come the trade deadline some team facing an injured QB will be desperate enough to make a large investment (1st round pick...) to get Favre for a 1 year hitch.

 

At very least they will hold on to him until week 1, he costs then nothing until then.

Really good point--this is the same crap Junior Seau pulled a couple of years ago.

Correct, The packers returned from the visit under the impression that Favre was coming back and he called a few days later and said he changed his mind.

yes.. brett.. make up your mind... go to the JETS or over to AZ... beat Warner to the job. or head over to SF.. dammit BRETT.. i used to think you're cool.. how you won ONE superbowl and went back for another.. come on man....

 

It aint gonna be AZ. I live here and I can tell you they have a 24-7 suction hold on Matt Leinarts cock. They think they are USC and the rest of the league is the PAC-10, stupid schmucks.

I don't think he's trying to be an attention whore, he's just trying to change his mind about retirement. I'd be surprised if he actually did come back because I think he only planned on coming back as a Packer. Now that he's realized he would not be welcomed back as a Packer and will not be allowed to be a free agent to choose his new home he will probably just stay home.

 

I think its a sad chapter to his career and should have never brought it up to begin with since he made his decision to retire. This will taint his legacy but will not stop his ascension to the football hall of fame.

he's a phony--always has been. poor aaron rodgers, he's gotta be perfect whether favre's the backup, retired, or on another team or the fans will turn on him.

 

anyway, the pack played over their heads last year and will come back down to earth this season--with or without favre

Not only that, but the Vikings are a lot better this year and I think they'll jump over the Packers for the division, with or without Favre.

Dude, look at their running back and they picked up Jared Allen in the offseason, this is a good team. And Tavaris Jackson hasn't been too bad.

I read an interesting article the other day. The Pack doesn't want Brett back, but they don't want to trade him to a division rival either... so he's not good enough to start, but he's too good to play against. :huh:

 

But anyways, the guy said... why not TRADE him to the Vikes? They'd get the Vikes first rounder (and possibly more), and if they really think Favre isn't better than Rodgers, then they get a chance to prove it twice a year. Plus, generally speaking, the Vikes are an older team... with no first rounder (and possibly another pick), a young team like G.B. is poised to own the division for a while as the Vikes get old overnight.

 

Food for thought.

I know its possible, just look at Baltimore in 2000(WHAT?? That never happened! IT NEVER DID!!! :P ). I guess they were built the same way, a real good D, a stud RB and a bad QB. Its just that, even though he and the Vikes torched us last yr, he seems to be a weak armed QB that can only run decently.

Packers are the youngest team in the NFL coming off a 13 win season where all these young guys got the experience needed to take the next step. Now they are going to put a QB in there whom IMO is not very good(why he slid on draft day in 05) and have him take his growing pains.

 

Anyone remember the 1994 Giants? COming off an 11-5 year, cut Simms, put that waste of space Brown in there and before you know it they are 3-7 and done. If I am a fan of the Pack the thought of that makes me want to put off the Roger era as long as possible. Now I know the Giants won 6 straight to end the 94 season, but the season was shot to let this first year starter grow(which he never did anyway but thats a different story).

 

Like I said, as a Giant fan I am happy as hell. Yes there is no way to tell in the NFL what a good team like the Pack in 07 will be in 08, but I feel a hell of a lot better with them having a first year starter at QB to be mediocre then Brett Favre.

 

If the Pack are so sold on this thought, release him and let him go to the Vikings and see what happens. If they had any balls thats what they would do.

 

As for Favre he is being a baby, but the guy wants to play and for what he has done to basically put GB back on the football map after 20 years of oblivion at the very least give him what he wants.

Giving him to the Vikings would be a flat out stupid move on the Packers part.

 

They've won one superbowl with Favre,one. And that one has a lot to do with Reggie White.

If I were a GB fan I'd be scared that Rodgers won't make week 5. He seems to be very fragile and Favre should show up to camp compete and even if Rodgers starts he'll be in there soon enough either way. Favre will save face by just complying with GB and get to play anyway. This isn't a Manning he will be backing up.
