    Because Favre is your field general and your HOF QB...and he is "THE GUY" who can take this team to the playoffs and beyond if the pieces are in the right place....

    It's not like he's just some other scrub like Kitna or a position player who depends upon the QB to make him have a good year....He is the man in GB..and has been for alot of years...

    TT..and some of you guys here should understand and respect that....he's earned it for ***** sakes...

    Hey DePack, Arrow, Trom, etc....

    I moved out to VA from WI recently, and have been very busy since January...just now finding time to catch up on the board, and packer news, which I'm sad to say, I'm WAY behind on.

    Anyway back on topic...as DePack and others mentioned, I'm not anti Favre, I just think the needs of the team need to come first, and I feel that continually giving Brett all the time in the world, tends to focus on the needs of one player rather than the team.

    The idea is to "win" Musscy....

    Not to just be a "mediocre" team that has team unity....

    Again..if that "one player" was just some mid-level scrub like Kitna...I would agree with you....but you don't treat your future HOF QB like a mid-level scrub...

    You build a team around him.....!

    the winning is my point D.Levens...

    I don't think Favre's indecision for the past 5 offseasons is helping the Packers. Favre used to be able to draw in free agents just because he was on the roster (Reggie White)...his indecision the past 5 offseasons has to have negatively impacted at least some free agents and their perception of GB?

    I have little doubt that the direction of the Packers and offseason moves would be dramatically different based upon whether Brett were here or not in 2,3, or 4 years. That's why I'm saying you can't coddle him and keep saying it's OK to take all the time in the world to decide. If Brett wants them to build around him, he needs to give the Packers some sort of commitment too.

    Conspiracy theory #6: The Organization knows Favre is coming back. They won't announce until after the draft. Teams needing a QB below the number 5 pick trade Picks for GB's. We get 2 extra quality picks for keeping hush-hush on Favres retirement. It's poker night for T.T.

    I'd believe the conspiracy theory were it not for this being the 4th or 5th season that Brett has seriously questioned his retirement

    We've been through this WAAAAY too many times, but would you really want Brett to commit, if he really doesn't know?

    That's the thing here. People that are huge Favre fans that say he should commit one way or another must not really believe he is undecided. If I thought Brett was just playing a game with the Packers, I'd be right behind you, but I believe the guy really doesn't know yet. The bottomline is he shouldn't commit until he is sure. If that is too late for the Packers then they should do what they feel is best for the team, even if it includes cutting him. That is where the rubber really meets the road. TT and company need to look after the Packers first and Favre needs to look after his family first.

    I don't really blame Brett for being so indecisive, like you said, I don't think he's doing this for his enjoyment.

    My only other comment (not directed towards anyone in particular) is that I don't think we need to assume it's doomsday once Brett is done. He has been, is, and still can be a phenomenal leader, player, etc, but...

    Hasselbeck and Rothelisberger aren't as good as brett was, or debatably still is, but they made it to the SB...again, I want him around, he's fun to watch, a great player... but I think some ppl are panicking and thinking he's the last shot the Pack will ever have at getting back to the SB

    Musscy...

    and just when was the Packer's last trip to the SB before Brett Favre came along....?

    just wondering..

    (The Point is that Favre is the Packer's best chance to get to the SB right NOW!! Otherwise..it's all in the hands of our fearless leader...TT..)

    That thought doesn't give me a warm fuzzy when I go to bed at night....

    Dorsey...there have been about 80 teams that went to the superbowl that weren't led by Brett Favre...it can be done.

    Brett could be the Packer's best bet, but he needs to commit...it's very hard to build a winner in one year.

    I guess my point is Musscy...is that Favre is a "PROVEN" commodity....

    and TT is "NOT"...

    I agree with that, but I don't see how the TT v. Favre angle comes into play on this topic. It's not like a one or the other thing...I'm just saying TT should be allowed, if not expected, to put some heat on Brett to come up with a decision (in whichever direction)

    If Brett is deciding on TT\MMs decisions, why doesnt Favre come back, and go to some meetings with them, tell them what he would like to see.

    Brett is a player, not a general manager.

    he doesn't know yet. and he won't be going to any meetings to tell thompson what he wants. that's kind of ridiculous.
