    Yeah Phil, Brett was surrounded by Pro Bowl players but some were because they played with Brett. Antonio Freeman sure went on to a long, productive career after leaving GB. Brett made average recievers look great. Corey Bradford,Bill Schroeder,Etc,etc.

    Your whole post just OOOOZZZEEEEES Jealousy.......and I love it!

    Turn that around for a moment. What has Favre done without them? Any Super Bowls? Any playoff wins at all for that matter?
    Behind a mediocre line and with so so receivers he has done nothing but go one and done in the playoffs including losses at home, guide the team to a 4-12 finish and lead the league in picks. Not to mention acting like a self centered jerk since last August.
    Favre benefited from his teammates a lot more then you, and apparently he wants to give them credit for.

    Well it's both ways. Lets not confuse Freeman, Schroder, et al. with talents of Rice, Moss, even TO. The fact is that the guys obviously had talent, but having Brett made a difference too. You can't sub a solid QB. Being a bears fan Phil, I think you'd know first hand... :p

    Pyle Said:It makes no sense. So lets throw in Rogers with a bunch of scrap heap players and then when he sucks we can cut him. Then he can go elsewhere and be surrounded by talent and not have to do everything and become a good QB."

    I DIDN'T say "scrap heap" players...........i said maybe you go with younger guys, that will develope WITH Rodgers. So they KNOW each other on the field. When Favre has WR's on the field that he KNOWS, he KNOWS what kind of move they will make if a play breaks down.
    If you get a top guy that you can sign, you sign him. I'm JUST saying the situation is different, and might sway the GM a different way.
    Now, of COURSE TT is going to say "It doesn't effect what i do" as it's the "politically correct" thing to say. Plus, there's NO way he's gonna come out and admith that a player affected what he did/does. That would just be opening the door for other players to try to hold the team hostage (i'm not saying Favre is, i mean more like Walker).
    I guess we will just have to agree to disagree on this issue. You made good points, and i believe i did too. There's nothing wrong with disagreeing........the ONLY one that knows for certain is Thompson himself.

    Good debates on both sides of this but let me end my part in this by saying I find it hard to believe that the word "selfish" is being applied to the one man who played every game ( injured or not ) for 221 straight games over 14 years.

    This is not a characteristic of a "selfish man" !!!

    I agree pyle! And it's not that i really disagree with what you say, i just see it from a different angle is all.
    No doubt, Favre is THE MAN! And i HOPE he gives it one more run!
    Hopefully they sign Arrington, and Brett SEES that GB wants to win NOW!

    You only count one? Maybe you are only counting Super Bowls. How about NFC Championships? NFC Central or North Division Championships?

    I thought we were talking Superbowls(real championships in my opinion).

    Nobody plays to win the division, they play to win the superbowl.

    My bad. I thought we were talking about real championships.
