    Yea I remember reading at PFT that the part where Brett slams TT was taken out last night. I guess this is how they're gonna air it...

    I would say that someone decided that the first two parts didnt accomplish what they were supposed to.

    Hmm..perhaps this isn't working as planned?

    Duh everytime Brett pushes the fans will slowly start pushing back. Something we appreciated about our old ahhh shucky geee qb was his quietness.

    More specifically, we always appreciated him for being a good soldier. He was the leader of the team on the field and in the locker room, but he was willing to defer to the coaches and the GM. He knew his role. Well, not anymore. And I now wonder if he was doing a lot more behind-the-scenes campaigning than we ever suspected.

    SO True Greg. I have deducted that this is all calculated. Look at the totallity of the situation. Bus Cook has been out shopping Favre for the last 4 years. Ever since Bretts father passed away Brett has been like a boat in the white water just going no where but where the water pushes him. He has no rudder. Brett may be the type of man that requires a leader in his personal life. A guidepost so to speak. He tends to surround himself with strong personalities as close friends. ie bus cook, certain sports writers. so who knows.

    Sure. He's human.

    And Brett Favre isn't entitled to have flaws? My God. The guy gave a sorry franchise 14 winning seasons and one 8-8 season.

    I will always look back at the Brett Favre years fondly. Yes, this offseason, he's done a lot of stupid things. But a lot of you are ready to throw him under the bus. It's not like he was dealing codeine or anything.

    I think you may be onto something here. Michael Jordan also became uncertain in his decision-making after his father died. (Two retirements followed by two comebacks.) It can be hard when somebody loses the person they most wanted to impress.

    i lost my dad almost 3 years ago - my life, outlook, choices, decisions, & just about everything has changed. it was like an awakening when he died. he was MY iron man & to watch him slowly die of cancer, lose all the weight, his hair, his muscles, & strength forever changed me. i felt the pressure of being the "one" to hold the family together. it's a HUGE role to attempt to step into when you're only 36 years old AND i'm a girl - even MORE difficult because i couldn't do everything my dad could do. i'm telling you - it's a life altering event for those left behind when the icon of the family dies.

    My mom died when I was in my early 20s, and it's probably no coincidence that I then spent a lot of years just
    sort of bouncing around from one thing to another. It was the right thing to do, and I don't regret it, but I bet if my mom had lived I would have settled into a career of some kind much sooner than I did. So it's easy for me to see how such things can affect athletes.

    Seriously? Don't you think Holmgren would have kicked Brett's *** by now?

    And can you imagine him trying to convince Ron Wolf about who he should keep on the roster?

    Cmon. At least try and make a good point. Now you're just bashing our coach who led us to a 13-3 season? You want Holmgren, who will probably retire after this next year. Smart. You want Wolf, who has been retired and out of the league for years. Smart.

    GET ON THE HORN TT.

    I'm not throwing Favre under the bus (you know, like Favre is the Packer organization). I LOVE the guy. But plain and simple, he did this to himself. He should stop blaming everyone else, and if he REALLY wanted his job back, come in and compete for it! What has he got to lose? If he's confident in his abilities, shouldn't he be able to zip right past Rodgers? So whats the problem here?
    Problem is: He thinks he shouldn't have to do that. He's above having to actually compete for a job he himself gave up. That just floors me.
    I love him, but disagree with him.
    I will NEVER forget how he played here. He was a blast to watch, and made it fun again to be a Packer fan. I still have several of his pictures on my walls. They will remain there.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: That was good! What I was wondering is, why doesn't he go into announcing or commentating? Then he can still be in the spotlight with Troy Aikman and Boomer.
