    Favre is like a kid trapped in an older body. Football is all he knows and now he realizes that he mad a bad choice months ago. He has to realize that once you turn your back you have to keep going that direction and act like a man, not a little girl. You cant afford to kill Rodgers' confidence by pulling the rug out from him which is why they have only strengthened it by shutting the door. As much as I like Favre, he is the one to blame here not our organization, he really needs to grow up.

    Is there an echo in here? Let's see, when did I hear these sentiments last? ..........



    Ah yes, right before we went 13-3 and were thiiiiiis close to a Super Bowl berth.... So, I guess things are looking good?

    With as little time as he'll have to prepare with a whole new team and playbook... he'll easily extend that All-time INT record by at least 10 before whoever picks him up pulls him from the starting position... which is really upsetting to me... because I love the guy and I don't wanna see him go down in flames.

    I've gotta say, also... when he retired, I was looking forward to wearing my #4 with pride on Sundays. If he comes back this season in any color other than green and gold... I don't think I'll be able to wear those jerseys anymore without feeling like an idiot for showing support for a situation that's guaranteed to be a running joke for the entire season, if not longer...

    He is acting like a fool and is making our organization a laughing stock of the NFL. We dont want him, so we should trade him and get what we can for him. I love Favre but he lost almost all respect with me because he cannot commit to one thing.

    Bertram that was a very nice quote thank you. We all know how complicated this stuff is, but that article really laid it out nicely.

    Sad sad sad day. Under Mike McCarthy, Favre learned a patience that had been lacking in his playing since Holmgren left GB. I wish that patience would've carried over to his decision-making off the field. Then this whole sad mess could've (would've) been avoided.

    I am not looking forward to having Favre play somewhere else. That won't be fun at all. But I'm a Packers fan and I'm realistic about the situation. Yes it's ok to change your mind. Yes it's ok for the Packer's org. to stay the current course. But it's ugly. It's not about who screwed up worse (TT vs. Favre), it's just sad.

    I don't think TT stabbed anyone in the back, and the only way TT could have stabbed somebody in the back is by doing a 180 right now and reneging on his promise to Rodgers. THAT would be a world-class back-stab. What a sad day.

    Is it within the realm of possibility that Favre asked to be released simply so there is no inkling of doubt that he is staying retired? I'm just sayin'...

    Yeah, I wonder who would have more interceptions next year.
    Brett or Aaron.

    I'm voting Brett.

    I wonder if Brett said, "April Fools Day!" when he backed out of the reinstatement the first time around.


    No, seriously.

    Nice post by the way on Montana.

    But again..Ted SEES something in Aaron and is going w/it as
    The 49ers did w/Steve Young. Albeit, the 49ers had more evidence for their cause w/Young starting every game and winning the MVP,
    but you have to keep in perspective that his seasonal accomplishments meant NOTHING to the 49ers fans because he didn't have a superbowl
    ring on his finger.

    To the 49ers fans there was NO difference between an season MVP QB Steve Young, and a QB who played 3 quarters like Rodgers. To them they were one in the same and didn't accomplish anything.

    TT has much less to base on for Rodgers than Young was based on in SF..
    So it's not a direct comparison (I've said this repeatedly).

    MY point(again) is that sometimes the GM puts a timetable on the player
    before the players wants it. And people can agree to disagree.
    In that sense Montana and Favre were given timetables to leave
    that they didn't like.

    According to one of the sources, Thompson has done more than he has let on in regard to giving Favre the opportunity to return. He said Thompson won't reveal those attempts publicly because he doesn't think it's necessary. He said he did not think it was his place to reveal them either.

    I wish I was a fly on the wall. That is the most interesting and soon to be talked about sentence.

    Nice post Bozz.

    I was talking abou this with someone else too. Perhaps he wanted to stop the rumor mill about "if" or "if not" and simply make sure it was "if."

    It's a sad day, in my personal twenty five year Packer history, don't have anything to equate it to as a fan. I should never have posted when I first heard the news.

    We have been spoiled the past couple of decades. Someone else was too.

    This is the news I hear when I first wake up? Really?

    Where do I begin...

    Well I'm shocked. I'm shocked Favre is doing this.

    First...why did he retire in the first place? I declared I wanted him back minutes after the Giants debacle. He had a very good year and there was no physical reason for him to retire. Also, he had to have known, that if he retired, around June\July, he was going to get the itch. Everyone knew he would. When you're doing the same thing for 20 years, and you're changing it up on the 21st, it's gonna be a little weird. Why did he retire in the first place? Ted Thompson, right? ...

    Why did Brett lie to us? One of the reasons I love the Packers and the reason I love Favre is because supposedly he's a straight shooter, an honest 'aw shucks' type of guy. He ain't gonna BS ya. Well...he did.

    He said he'd never play in another uniform. He will.
    He said he'd never play again. He will.

    Favre made a huge withdrawal from the first bank of lies.

    No matter how you look at it now, Aaron Rodgers is our quarterback. Get on board or keep your mouth shut.
