    I don't think it's in amy way, shape, or form a fear of failure. He "failed" every year he didn't win the Super Bowl. To me, it's caring more about your team if you are honest and saying I'm tired, and might not want to do this anymore. And if I'm not 100% commited to it, then i would be letting down my team mates, the fans, the organization to just go through the motions in order to collect a big paycheck.
    Is THAT a fear of failing? Don't think so.

    I never said that Favre is a coward. Why does everyone keep bringing up Fave's father, grandmother or other family members?

    There are many, including myself, who have had just as much hardship in life as Brett Favre has had and probably more.
    I lost my father and both of my grandmothers in a 6-month span.
    My brother died with out any warning at a young age. My best friend died of AIDS at 32. My wife's mother died the same week that my daughter was born. My wife had 2 miscarriages in less than a year. On top of that she has some serious health issues and is having surgery again next Friday. Her 9th surgery since we were married.
    My daughter’s appendix ruptured when she was 10, needed emergency surgery to have her intestines removed, cleaned and placed back inside and now has a ten-inch scar to prove it. You want to talk about heartbreaking.
    We all have had to deal with life’s tragedies but we can't just decide to retire in our 30s with millions in the bank. We go back to work and try to put our lives back together. Spare me about Brett's personal troubles because I would trade places with his hard times in a heartbeat.

    That is ridiculous. Aaron Rodger better than Brian Griese? :-? Give me a break. This is Homerism at it's finest. Favre 10 years ago was better, now I don't know, he's definitely better at throwing interceptions though.

    You might want to check Griese's numbers( not too bad), but then again denial is the first sign of FEAR. :D

    would i rather have Griese over a green QB, hell yes. but lets not go crazy and call him any good...mediocre might be a better adjective for him. maybe i'm crazy, maybe Bob Griese strikes FEAR into any defense he faces!! :wink:

    He's pretty good. If you're too blind to see it just because he'll be in a Bears uniform, then so be it. Ignorance is bliss. :wink:

    c'mon Sacker. do you think i would have problems admitting you guys made a nice acquisition? i thought he stunk in Denver and Tampa...subsequently, i think he'll stink in Chicago, after grossman gets hurt of course. :wink:

    he's definitely an upgrade over Orton though, can't deny that.

    He didn't stink in Denver and he had Tampa at 5-1 before he got hurt last season which is more wins than Brett Favre had in 16 games, but hey Orton won more games than "The Selfish One" too(ouch). I said Griese is pretty good and nothing more and he is. Sure he's not Favre, Elway, Marino good/great, but how many QB's are. I can see your standards being a little high, seeing as how you've been spoiled at the QB position for 15 years, which by the way will soon come to an end. I know you are really hoping Rex goes down because he's undefeated aginst your fudgies so far. I guess we'll just have to wait and see on this one.

    cut it out buddy! i'm a football fan first so this doesn't have anything to do with who's QB'ing for the Packers. Griese has reached 3k yards once in 6 or 7 years? maybe twice, i'll double check. those aren't favorable stats by any means my man. if you want to compare him to Favre last year then be my guest...you're setting the benchmark a little low if you ask me.

    if you think he's good, fantastic. we'll see what he does for you guys if he gets on the field...if he performs above average, it wouldn't be the first time i was wrong.

    Griese gets to compete for starter with a good team. Good for him.

    The Bears have some needed insurance if Grossman gets hurt again. Good for the Bears.

    The Bears also have a developmental guy in Orton for the future. Again good for the Bears.

    The Bears are not worse in this pick up. It puts pressure on all three of their QB's. With the multi-year contract to Griese, Orton will have to earn heir apnt status again. The best outcome for the Bears is if Orton continues to improve to the point where the Bears can trade away one of the other 2 in 2007 or 2008.

    If it's how you see it why didn't you post it instead of waiting for a PACKER fan to?

    "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

    -If an American said this quote instead of Yamamoto, it would be less poignant.
