    Wow. This is NOT what I expected from Fav-re. Way to screw the Packers Fav-re.

    One thing positive that comes out of this, the reactions I have seen show that there are lot more Packer fans than Fav-re fans.

    i wonder what everyone will say if brett wins the sb with another team, or if he is in our devision and pick our d apart at least 2 times a year.

    it not about being a packer fan or favre fan its about whats the smartest thing to do.

    its like saying you find a $5000 car for $3000 but later you find a $10000 car for $3000 but you go with the first choice because you told the guy you where going to buy his car.

    a rod stays the starting qb because he was promised, WTF?? favre is the better player so he should play. the best man should take the job and brett is the best guy.

    I would say the number is pretty even... there are a LOT of Favre fans that are fans of other teams... I have met so many people that talk to me here in FL seeing my Green Bay hat (year round) asking about Favre or whats coming up this next year and so on... even if they are fans of other teams, one major subject they always mention is they love watching him play...

    favre is going to make the packers more money.
    more people are going to watch with favre
    favre has more respect.
    favre outplays a rod.
    favre is more consistent than a rod.
    favre is a H.O.F qb!
    favre has more expirence.
    favre has a better chance of winning.
    favre knows the recivers better.
    favre knows other defences better.


    all in all favre is better than a rod in every aspect and a rod gets to start because he was promised the starting spot!! WTF??

    i dont think any job would do that, its just plain stupid.

    Sure there are a lot of Favre fans in the world but on here there are a lot more Greenbay Packer fans. Being just a Favre fan is like saying you are a Robert DeNero fan. It's the whole star thing and loving to watch him act.
    Favre is a great player and it's been fun watching him play on the team I'm devoted too but he isn't the team. He is just a part.

    Aaron will have better numbers than Bett will have next year.

    Aaron will have more T.D's, Less Int's, will rush for more yards, and have a higher QB Rating.

    The Packers will still be playing in the playoffs next year while Brett will be leaving his team hanging about whether he is returning for 2009 while he secretly hints through Bus Cook that they need to trade for Randy Moss if he will play another year.

    He will also chew up and spit out another GM before he finally is finished.

    To be honest I didn't get it either. Rodgers should keep his mouth shut till he get's injured? Shouldn't he keep his mouth shut if he get's injured?

    Here is a really sensible take from a guy on my blog named philski ...

    It’s nothing but selfishness, unfortunately, on Favres’ part. What I told a rather unrepentant Favre fan is that there is no Favre in Team. Unconditional release is not an option.

    The packers, I think, are taking the appropriate stand, as posted on their website. Should Favre petition to be re-instated, he will then regain his membership on the team, and management will do what is in the best interest of the team.

    I’d hate to play against Favre, but honestly, I don’t think I want him back as full time QB for two more years. The only way he can stay in GB is if he, TT, MM and Aaron Rogers sit down and work out an amicable succession of power from Favre to Rogers, which may involve Favre sitting some games and wrecking that consecutive game streak. But I don’t see that happening.

    I agree with Barkley, it’s sad what he’s doing to the GB franchise and fans who have supported him through thick and thin - drug dependency, family members’ deaths, wifes’ cancer, a few poor years of football - and then to retire and go back on your word, it’s just poor form to do that to your fan base. Surely there is life after football.

    Apologies for the rant. I now live in Alabama, and beyond my wife there’s no one really to talk about this with.

    I invited him to come on over...that's a good take on things.

    My opinion...

    Let Brett Favre go. Move on. If he wants to re-neg his retirement, fine. Do it somewhere else. As great as he was I don't think he has much left in him.

    Bye Brett. Good luck.

    I am in your camp CalifPacker. To be honest, I really don't care if he comes to another team and beats us with them. Like you guys I watched years of bad games with the Packers with Brett around so I can stand to have some growing pains with Rodgers. Go Pack Go!

    Im with you 100% redsox. The reaction by the people in this thread is pretty disgusting. For the most part it seems to be a bunch of long time closet favre haters and "newer posters". Whatever. My favorite team this year will be whatever team the packers are playing if TT doesnt suck the big one and get Favre back behind center. The guy just wants to play. The packers totally dissed him by not wanting him back especially after the year he just had. What else was he supposed to do? Say ok mr teddy, you dont want me so im just gonna sit on my hands and do nothing. I dont think so.

    You people who are dissing Favre. Well, you people are very transparent. Same old TT backers from day one. Kind of expected it but pretty sad to watch how low you will go. Watch and wait. This is a 6-7 win team AT BEST with A-Rod behind center the next 2 years.

    And people got mad when I used the term Favre-Firster as if this person didn't exist. Say hello.

    You sicken me.
