    Of course he is, these QB's don't know when to quit. So the question is, does he go out a champ like Elway, on his back like Aikman and Steve Young, or with a whimper like Marino and Montana?

    I thin the Giants beat the Cowboys, The Packers beat the Giants but I am not sure this team can beat New England in the Superbowl. They are though the team that could beat them.

    So if the seson ends on Feb 3rd with a loss in the Arizona Desert I sure hope he is back next year. If the season ends with a Superbowl win I hope he is back as well.

    The 2008 tteam will be a little more mature, and off season moves will polish this team. The 2008 Packers will be a better team than this one and this one is second best in the NFL.

    I think the Packers can beat New England.

    The Ravens, Eagles, and Giants exposed some weaknesses in the Patriots.

    They won't be able to contain the YAC!

    That is a bold statement and one that I would like to see tested. If we make it to the SB, we'd have to be perfect, and lucky, to win it.

    I think we'll keep ahead of Seattle this weekend.

    Not looking ahead of Seattle, but the Patriot's defense is old and slow and can be exploited.

    That being said.....

    Go Pack....Crush the Seachickens!

    I think its awesome that he will come back next season. But here is the thing. How much longer does Rodgers want to wait. From what I have seen so far I think Rodgers is the answer so far and would hate for him to go to another team and do great. I love Favre and would take him over Rodgers but eventually I think this is going to be a problem.

    Montana didn't exactly go out with a whimper. He took a mediocre team to the Playoffs two straight years, then called it quits.

    Heh. Sometimes someone on the forum will exclaim "post of the day!"

    Well, I'll exclaim "picture of the day!"

    That's too funny.

    The thing is, if there's one team in the NFL that can beat the Pats, it's us. We're a good match. I can see their D wearing down late in the game after chasing after Donald and Gregarious and our other Big-5'ers all day long. (has image in his head of Patriot DBs throwing up in their oxygen mask).

    I think Aaron Rodgers will get tired of waiting and demand to be traded. You can't blame him. Next year will be his 5th year in the NFL. He's spent all 4 years so far holding clipboards and walking up and down the sideline. You can't really blame him. This is kind of like the Brady Quinn situation. Will Derek Anderson sign with another team, or will he stay? Will Brady Quinn be traded? I think we will trade A-rod sometime next year for and 2nd and 3rd rnd pick or something similar. After all, he does have lots of potential, and who better to learn from than #4 himself?

    I think Favre will come back to, they are on a winning streak and its been a great season for them all. The only way I think Favre will retire is if they do win the SuperBowl then he can go out like the champion he is. But I will still be rooting for him to come back..

    Brett WILL BE BACK- He tells his local newspaper in Kiln, M

    I just heard on the radio here in Sacramento that Brett told his home town local paper in Kiln Mississippi that he will be coming back for an 18th year.

    Good News.

    Figured he would. Good news considering if we won the Super bowl he would leave so his career ended on a good note...

    I'm seriously thinking the reason he thought about retirement after '05 and '06 was because he was unsure of himself. Were his skills declining? Was he an asset, or a burden on the Green Bay Packers?

    '07, Favre is an entirely different QB. MM created a system, and convinced Favre to trust him and work the system instead of trying to do it all himself. The system consists of a high completion percentage, where you use your WRs to find weaknesses in Ds and exploit them. The system relies heavily on YAC, and thus the reason TT found the perfect WRs for it (he got us Jennings, Jones, and Robinson, and if I'm not mistaken, R Martin too, right?)

    The big loser in all this is TT's very first draft pick for the Packers - Aaron Rodgers. With the system, Favre can play for another 3 or 4 years, maybe even longer. This system doesn't need a young QB. It needs someone who studies opponents and is willing to do a lot of homework. It needs someone with brains, but they absolutely have to be accurate. Favre is an accurate passer. He has always been. And he'll be for several more years at least.

    Now, just because Brett CAN play in this system for many more years doesn't mean he will. He has personal reasons to retire, reasons that you and I cannot comprehend because we're not in his shoes.

    So he'll play one more year. That didn't surprise me. How many after '08? Only Brett Favre knows.

    My belief is that is we win it all Brett retires, but if we don't he comes back.

    And.....

    I don't think it will be for just one more year.

    This is a talented "YOUNG" team and Brett will try to take it as far as he can.

    Watching Brett play I truly beleive he beleves he can play for a few more years at least.

    I would like to see what Rodgers can do in the starting role, but if Favre would like to come back I'm not complaining.
