    Packers | Team asking for decision from Favre by Saturday
    Tue, 28 Mar 2006 10:03:53 -0800

    ESPNews reports Green Bay Packers officials have asked QB Brett Favre to make a decision on retirement by Saturday, April 1.

    Now we are pushing Brett, this may backfire on TT´s face....

    Sorry I dont have access to the insider area of ESPN to post the whole thing

    I wonder if this might just be a bargaining ploy on TT's part. If team's know you are anxious or willing to trade a player, they won't give up much in return.

    I'm glad Farve finally has to make a decision. Otherwise he would have waited until the day before the season starts to say "I'm getting a little closer to making my decision." He's extremely selfish for making the team wait so long. It's been over 2 months for goodness sake. Make up your mind already.

    From what I've read, Favre doesn't have to make a decision. It is a nonbinding deadline so if he says he hasn't decided yet, then we will continue to wait.

    I can see the Packers wanting to know before the draft. I HOPE we know by April 1st. I really think he has to know by now...........mini camp isn't that far away now. Maybe it all has been done already, and just not announced.

    TT is starting to look like a punk. He has his QB stringing him along on his possible return, and he has malcontent WR threatening to retire if he has to.

    He has to take a stand sometime...otherwise hes gonna be a pusharound lil nancy boy.

    So...hopefully it works out.

    TT and MM tried to be nice saying "it would be nice to have an answer soon.." HINT HINT! But now they need to know.

    they have money to spend, and good draft position. they need to know from brett, and thats the bottom line.

    As for javon....good...torture him...send the message you cant go to GB and coast, and if you dont like it, you can pull this ****. good work on both fronts, I think.

    it is definitely getting a little frustrating waiting for brett to decide, but he's not doing anything that the front office forbid him to do. at the end of last season, they didn't say, "tell us your decision by April 1st". they said, "take all the time you need", so while my panties are certainly in a bunch, waiting for his announcement, he's certainly not doing anything wrong.

    Walker does not get paid if he sits out. Once the regular season starts, he loses 1/17th of his salary every week he sits out. If he sits out the entire year, he will still have 1 year left on his contract.

    What were they supposed to do, be ***** from the get-go and give him a deadline right off the bat? Or be nice, and cool, and show brett the love and respect he deserves? Considering last time he made his decision before fanfest, they probably assumed it would be around the same time...well..it wasnt. Free agency continues, and the draft approaches. Decision time is needed, so theyre giving a deadline.

    The Packers' comment about Walker means nothing. For one thing, we don't even know who said it. And for another, if management is thinking of trading him, they would be better off denying that they want to do so until a deal is actually done. If they say they might trade him, then the deal falls through, they will lose some bargaining power.

    In an abrupt departure from previous statements, Green Bay Packer General Manager Ted Thompson commented on Monday that Brett Favre’s hesitation to make a decision between retirement and coming back is impacting his ability to attract free agents to Green Bay.

    Thompson, who said he last spoke to Favre "a couple days ago," said he thought Favre's return would have been a selling point to free-agent visitors.

    "I think it's possible that there are players that might consider the Packers more attractive if Brett was our quarterback today," Thompson said

    Asked if Favre's indecision has hamstrung the team during the offseason, Thompson replied, "I wouldn't want to get into that. But it makes certain things a little difficult."

    Does anybody disagree with that? its pretty hard to.

    Would you rather play for a team where the QB is Favre or Joey Harrington?

    How about Favre or McCown?

    How about Favre or A-Rod?

    Cuz thats what the situation is now. I know I(personally) would be more eager to play on a team with a HoF QB who can win you games you might think are out of reach, than a team where the QB hasnt even played one full season...

    but thats me...and free agents as well...

    Good post Trom. I agree torture walker. It seems like his step Dad is talking for him and moving him. You'd think he could at least show up and help?

    Yet McCarthy has stated that Favre's decision or lack thereof has made no difference in the teams approach. They need to quit sending mixed messages. If they really must know....give him a deadline. Don't one day say that it is hampering the team not to know, and then the next day say he can take as long as he and his family needs.

    IF this is happening(and I'm not saying it is) this is extremely weak management.
