    I feel bad for Favre, he doesn't deserve anyone ripping him. He could have forced a trade to a contender, but chose to stay.
    I still like and respect Moss, he didn't want to leave and had a great rapport with the fans.
    Culpepper....refused to meet with his new coach, demanded a new contract, refused to do rehab up here....may every pass he throws be an interception.

    Trade him to the Saints. I'd take him in a heart beat. He hates loosing. Not sure what yall really know about Brett. He is a class act and takes EVERYTHING upon his shoulders. It shouldn't be that way. It's a TEAM....come up with 10 more just like him and you'll never loose another game.

    It's called playing out of control. Would you accept Ahman Green fumbling the ball? Would you accept Woodson not making a tackle to give up a touchdown. I have no problem with the guy trying to make plays, seriously I don't. I'm just saying, you can't play the game recklessly. Favre the gunslinger had players around him who could make those plays. He doesn't have that anymore. You will never convince me that it's ok for a QB with his intellect and talent to just throw the ball around like that.

    im sorry but i have to say this.

    you favre haters need to shut up!!!


    favre is the best qb we will have.

    when he retires you guys will know just how important he is.

    i hope he sticks with us as long as possible because i know that our next qb wont be even close to favre.


    im sorry i had to say that but enough is enough, now stop hateing on him.

    I know some of you guys are just expressing some frustration after yesterdays game...understandable.

    But remember,......you have SB victories in your history and have the pleasure of getting to see one of the best QB's in history still playing for you....in Lambeau no less.

    As a football fan, things look pretty good.

    I have as much respect and admiration for Brett Favre as the best Favre fans could have. But listen to me closely this time. It's not ok for any quarterback to be throwing the ball up for grabs with the score as it was. I know he was trying to make a play, I'm just saying, that recklessness also causes you to lose games. There is no greater warrior than Brett. I don't know if there is a tougher player that has ever played the game. But he has to play in control. He should play in control. And you know what? If you really want to be considered as one of the greatest who ever played this game, you can't play that way. He's had a great career. His accuracy was off yesterday but the guy worked his butt off to make things happen. Then the game is out of control and now the interceptions come. I only ask, Why? And don't give me this stuff about not being a Brett Favre fan. I just expect the guy who I think is the greatest to ever play the game to play like he's the greatest, not a second rate quarterback.

    the score...was...26-0. the greatest players NEVER give up & if you think him airing it out is giving up then i feel sorry for you.

    speaking of second rate QB's...
    do you remember the 4th & 26 game??
    wtf do you think HE was doing when that pass was thrown??
    he was AIRING IT OUT & hoping for a catch!!!
    not giving up, selling out, or anything BUT trying to win & i think we ALL know how THAT turned out!

    i dont know why you guys are only blameing favre.

    what all about the other players who made big mistakes on o and d.

    chad c. basiclly killed our drive with his 2 mistakes(1st and 30).

    i can point out alot of people but that dose not need to be done.

    Why do you feel sorry for me? Because my opinion is different than yours? Do you hear me criticizing you for your thoughts? I was just offering my opinion. I don't think Brett is a second rate quarterback. I will say this for the last time. I have no problem with him trying to make a play. But also at that point in the game he wasn't giving his team a chance to win. He was throwing the ball up and hoping to make a play. He didn't make the play. It's that simple.

    i said this before and im going to say it again.


    he had no choice but to throw it up. their is no way the packers would have scored 26 points in 12 munits.

    favre throwing it up was the only hope we had for winning

    Sure he had a choice. He made his choice. I just feel badly for him that he threw 3 interceptions yesterday. I thought that if he had used more control he may have taken a different option. He didn't. Game over. 26-0 loss. Three interceptions and the aruguments have started. I'm hoping by next week the offensive line will be better, the receivers will get open, Brett will throw some touchdown passes and just maybe the defense will play better. Go Packers!

    Did you even see the game. He threw 2 ints, not 3, and they both happened when the game was over. Damn, what's the difference? Did you have him on your fantasy team?

    Check that: Defense gave up 19 points, not 26. You're forgetting about the punt return. Overall, the defense bent but didn't break, keeping Chicago to mostly FG's and not TD's.

    Yeah DePak I saw the game, you're right it was two, it a mistake. Sorry I was thinking 3 because I think it was a play or two in there where he bounced two off the defenders chest. Both of which should have been caught by the defender.

    Listen, we're talking out of frustration. We're all Packer fans and we're all hurting because we got our ears pinned back and we played awful in every facet of the game. We're angry with Thompson because he hasn't done a very good job of addressing the issues on this team. He's tried, it just appears that he missed on his effort. I love Brett Favre, but I hate it when he looks bad. I get frustrated when I see our team missing assignments, playing too far of the receivers, not staying in your lanes. I'm frustrated that every fan on this board knew that Thompson and McCarthy needed to address the line issues and didn't do that. So yeah, I'll admit I'm frustrated and out of frustration comes some tough talk. The bottom line is that this team isn't very good right now, but mabye they will grow.

    Favre should be a man and congratulate Grossman and the rest of the Bears for playing such a good game. What he did was busch league, if the Packers would have won he would be out there and the Bears would be congratulating him. I'm sure his mother told him there would be days like this.

    I've seen him do this a couple times. most of the time it is after he gets his a$$ beat into the ground during the course of a game. I dont think its really the right thing to do...but if i were him i wouldnt want to get flooded by the media.
