    Jul 31 Tom Silverstein, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre was singing a vastly different tune from the one he delivered at his charity golf tournament in Tunica, Miss., when he met with the media Monday, July 31. He stunned a room full of reporters by stating, "I really feel, as far as talent is concerned, this is the most talented team that I've been part of as a whole." Favre either could not or would not answer how his opinion of the Packers could change so dramatically in such a short period of time. Favre then went out and threw five interceptions at practice. It's the most talented, "but the most unproven, inexperienced team that I've ever played on," said Favre, who is entering his 15th year in Green Bay. "So if we can somehow put it together, there's a lot of talent out there. But when you compare, like, this year to maybe the year we won the Super Bowl, the two years previous to 1996, we weren't a very talented team. We weren't under-talented, but we were very experienced. Sometimes, guys in their first or second year, they show up and make plays and you go, `Whoa, that's why we drafted them.' We have guys who can do that, but it remains to be seen what can happen." Favre said physically he felt every bit his 36 years, but he said his arm was still strong. The worst thing ailing him is a sore left ankle that dates back to surgery he had Feb. 27, 1996.

    Brett says the same thing every year, what do you expect him to say? These guys suck, we have no chance?

    No Packnic, you can't. That is why I've deleted your posts, calling members that isn't something we do here at pf.com.

    At least Brett gives the guys a chance. He is encouraging the new kids.

    If Favre feels that way, great. If he doesn't and he's just trying to motivate the younger players, that's cool too.

    Why is it such a big deal?

    I agree with you, but don't you think it sounds stupid too. I mean come on, there is no way this team is more talented then any of the teams of 92, 93, 94, 95., 96. 97. 98, and there were a few other teams in the early 2000's that were pretty good too. Tell me you didn't wince at least a little bit when you heard his comments. I love the guy and he's more than likely trying to stroke this team and motivate them and that's a great thing. But you have to admit this isn't the most talented team he ever played on. I'm sure guys like White, LeRoy, Edgar, Jones, Chewey, and a few of those guys wold have a good laugh at this one.

    well thats exactly it. Its been 10 years since those guys, and favre is old, remembering back to guys like that. Sure Collins reminds Favre of Leroy Butler(or maybe he thinks he IS Butler, same number and all).

    Talented doesnt mean much if the coaches don't get the most out of it.

    The staff for the SB years got the most out of the talent they had.

    I think it sounds stupid if you don't hear the whole audio clip from it, but I heard the entire conference and I can see where he's coming from. I don't know if I agree this is the most talented though, but I can see where he is coming from.

    now were gettin some good posts...

    bretts been in the league for a long time, and has seen some great teams... so if he says it, i believe it. sure he might be hyping the team up for the season and gettin the confidence up...
    but i mean seriously... you cannot say its not our most talented team, because we havent seen them play yet.

    ON PAPER sure they dont look like a great team, but if they take the feild and perform way past what PAPER says, people will call them talented. i personally think people put WAY TOO much emphasis on name recognition. Just because his name aint ray lewis, doesnt mean he cant hit like him.

    and for the record, ESPN and every single radio host in the world is sayin bretts an idiot.... as soon as we get down boy they start kicking. ESPN just did NFC north little gay thingy... and had positive things to say about everysingle team.... except for us whom they think is the worst football team to lace em up. So im just sayin i hope we have a great year simply to cram it up espns tail pipe and prove em wrong.

    Brett is trying to motivate the team. Nothing more or nothing less. If he can give the young players some confidence, then maybe they'll peform.

    This team is no where near the caliber of the mid 90's team.

    Anyone suggesting that Ahman Green is NOT one of the most talented running backs to wear a Packer uniform?

    Anyone suggesting that William Henderson is not one of the best fullbacks in Packer history?

    When was the last time we had two linebackers with the pedigree of Barnett and Hawk? Or Harris and Woodson?

    This team has some talent. But talent and a quarter will get you a cup of coffee and not much else if they don't a) pull it together and b ) stay healthy.
