    Why would TT not like Brett?

    I see why Brett Doesn't like TT, but I don't see why TT doesn't get the players needed to get the Packers back in the playoffs.

    I don't understand what Ted would have against Brett either. Maybe Ted is jealous that Brett is okay talking in front of people and Ted pisses his pants when he realizes he has to make an announcement? :shrug:

    No, I think it's because Brett thinks he should build a team around him, while TT wants to do it his own way.

    IMO.

    That is a good point. Like you said, maybe Brett thinks "hey i only have a few years, crack the bank some and get some talent so we can win now and i can go out on top like Elway" where as again like you said Ted's philosophy is to build through the draft and take forty years by which time Favre will have been retired for a year.

    A logical thought is that players shouldn't have a say in such decisions in the first place. That is TT's job along with his staff, not the job of the QB.

    Agreed in principle, however I think back to the days of Reggie and some of the additions he helped bring to this team.. which were vital to the success and Super Bowl championship.

    Sean Jones and Keith Jackson were courted by Reggie if memory serves correct.

    Not arguing that the players run the team, but sometimes I think an assist might help.

    Teams are always trying to upgrade their talent. What bullshit. Just trying to stir the pot some more

    Correct...at the right time. We had a solid core of players at that time and additions were necessary to put us over the top. Right now, additions of FA would not put us over the top.

    So DavidPHX is Brett's pilot and he posts critical opinions from Brett on the internet? What the hell kind of a friend is that???

    I like the way PFT makes it clear that the Packer organization messed up the Moss deal. Like it was all in our hands. Every deal done can fall through for many reasons. This one did. Furthermore, Moss is not a Packer so it doesn't matter.

    As for players helping to pursue other players. Yes it happened all the time. Reggie called Deion too, but that never worked out.

    Keyshawn is not the answer and for the Packer fans who are afraid of Aaron Rodgers, so one is going to have to replace Favre sometime. So whether that's popular or not, that occurance is getting closer every year.

    I do not think Brett should have gotten involved in this or at least not in the way he got involved.

    He has Ted's number. He should have picked up the phone and called him direct. I think he is being reminded at this point that there is two sides to every story and maybe he didn't have the whole story like he thought he did when he spoke out.

    In following the thread I believe that this shows only that Brett did not like how Ted handled this deal based on what he knew and believed at the time. He has basically backed Ted in other cases when describing the team and the talent.

    Wasn't Ted the first one Brett called to tell he was coming back?

    First one as in he called Ted before McCarthy and Mooch.

    I'm not sure why he'd be talking with someone he hates. IF you hate someone, you generally try to stay away from them and not call them...

    And wasn't PFT reporting JUST YESTERDAY that Moss not going to the Packers WASN'T Ted's fault?

    They should pick a point of view... and stick to it.

    Florio is a Vikings fan over at PFT. It doesn't matter if he's consistent, as long as he stirs up as much crap as possible for the Packers. He'll deny he's being biased, but it's pretty obvious, subconscious or not. I've gotten into it over email with him after he wrongly stated Favre was definitely retiring last year.

    Oh, and Timmons, nice post.

    PFT gets feed via the agents... Florio is a West Virginia based lawyer... so he gets the rumblings of a story via agents and guesses on the outcomes... if you read the general theme, they are generally correct about the nature of the story but wiff on the details or content of it. IMO the agents feed him if you read the storylines.

    For what ever reason... Favre and recently Vick have been longstanding targets. Someplace in college they probably kicked WV *** at something and he still holds the grudge.

    Plus anyone in the mainstream media gets blasted for the most part... unless they are putting him on their programs :)

    Storys like this make me laugh. What worker hasn't been ticked off by their boss at some time or another? Thats "news?"
    And being as Favre is a future HOF'er, he's a target. They don't attack so-so players, as no one cares what happens to them. So they take what Brett says, and make up the rest to fill a page.
    Favre gets frustrated about the Moss deal going bad, spouts off. So now he HATES TT, and TT HATES him.
    They take it to the extreme to make a good story.

    Im sure many of you guys have attended Training Camp Practices but I have attended many in the past couple years, and who have i personally witnessed favre standing next to, laughing with, talking to? none other than our GM ted thompson. I think if they didnt like eachother they would not sit on the practice field while favres not taking reps and talk with just eachother.

    The thing is that TT wants his QB to be the guy to lead the Pack to a SB. TT can't get out of WOLFS shadow until ALL of Rons players are gone. I think it's that SIMPLE

    Yeah, because the goals of a GM are far more complicated than making moves to field a winning team. Thompson's gigantic ego gets in the way of appreciating the HOF quarterback that he has on his team. In his mind everybody is laughing at him because he's borrowing Wolf's QB.

    Where does this **** come from? Vikings fans, I swear to God.

    You have to be careful when stating your opinions around here if they can in any way be construed as being negative to Ted Thompson. His fan club tends to gang up and lash out. Just to be on the safe side, you may want to check the streets for people with white hair before you leave the house in the next few days. :wink:
