    Not sure if anyone has posted anything about this and I know there was all that talk last week about favre on every sports channel and websites, but this adds some fuel to that fire and I'm sure I will soon see something on TV about this.

    EDIT - Thanks I see now. You know it`s kinda funny how many people have misused Brett`s rambling nature against him.

    Sticking to Brett`s response to the question asked would have been the responsible route for the reporter to go, instead of adding fuel to the fire about a possible return by Brett.

    Brett Quote: "Aaron has fallen into a great situation. And if that opportunity presented itself and they did call, it would be tempting. And I very well could be enticed to do it."

    AARON HAS FALLEN? FALLEN? into a great situation?

    I have a challenge with that statement.

    Aaron has not Fallen into anything. He has Risen up to this situation and opportunity. Aaron has studied, took his snaps in practice, played the opposition Q.B in practice all week before Brett's game day.

    He has worked, studied again, and performed like a champion in his opportunity in the Dallas Game.

    He has Not Fallen into a great situation. He has risen up and earned this opportunity.

    Now... If the Packers never made him their first round pick years ago, and the packers had to sign a re-hashed free agent Q.B. like Culpepper to take over as the leader of this offence next year "I Would agree that Culpepper FELL INTO A GREAT SITUATION.

    I do not know... But words say a great deal when you look at them in a statement.

    I sure hope Brett is not bitter. Not upset. And did not feel he was pushed out in a very subtle manner like it has been reported he may have been.

    I wish Brett would have said: "Aaron has worked hard, studied well and will make the most of this opportunity. He has earned the right to run down the tunnel and take charge of tomorrow."

    I would have loved it if Brett passed the torch with a positive statement like that to the fans of Green Bay.

    I think Arron has earned it, and not fallen into anything.

    I think hes truly happy to be retired, he will always have second thoughts as to if he made the right decision. But just like he said he eventually would have had to retire, I am just thankful he could still walk off the field in pretty good health.

    I thought he earned it by working his *** off and impressing the coaches for 3 years.

    but I've been wrong before.

    Great Post. I have never thought of it that way. You make some great arguments and points.

    I appreciate being corrected, for I make a great deal of stupid statements based on my warped, self centered opinion.

    Can a "Monitor" please delete my post and all posts below it.

    I feel like a fool.

    I think being drafted in the NFL is earning something. I mean that's quite the accomplishment by itself. Rodgers has earned the right to start for the Packers through hard work his entire life.

    I don't think Favre meant that Rodgers hasn't earned the job as the starting QB as the Packers. I think he meant that Rodgers is going to be the starter on a team that has a lot of talent and just played in the NFC Title game. That is falling into a great situation. At least that's how I took it.

    On Favre coming back due to injury. If Rodgers went down in training camp and he would have to miss a significant amount of time, then I think the Pack should give Favre a call. If he says no then you tried. It's nice to see that Favre is leaving the door open for a return if Rodgers were to get hurt.

    agreed porky. the "great situation" Favre is referring to is not the starting role, but rather the supporting cast.

    i agree.

    Brett made himself very clear how he felt about Rodgers during his retirement speech. i think this is taking a poorly formed sentence and attaching a negative sentiment to it. a tad lame IMO.

    "You people? what do you mean, 'You people'?"

    Maybe Favre isn't completely out in Green Bay?

    I know I know, I don't believe he'll come back, but this entry on ESPN Hashmarks makes you wonder, maybe #4 Isn't done in Green Bay. This is apparently based on Favre's response to the Sun Herald in Biloxi: http://www.sunherald.com/brett/story/475495.html

    What do you guys think, is Favre just giving the reporters more smoke to filter through? Or is Favre merely trying to give a little respect to the Franchise that traded for him so many years ago?

    hrms.

    exactly. Brett is an honest guy. says exactly what comes into his mind at the second it appears.

    just a situation where it was poorly worded. Basically.... we need to get the microphones and video cameras off of him for awhile.... so that we can be a normal freakin franchise and move on a little bit. tell Nick Barnett to go smack some chick around at night club or something... we need some attention on the team.

    Heh, I'm not saying He needs to come back, I've been saying for a while I think he's done, but the fact that Favre said this to a news paper is very interesting nonetheless.

    just goes to show you how influenced we all are by the media. We all agree here that this report is crap, and all the other reports are doing a disservice to the team, etc. etc. etc. But here we all are, doing exactly what the media wants us to be doing; talking about it and clicking on their website.

    How many here made a choice on something and knew in YOUR heart it was the right call and would never change it...

    But weeks later you start to ask yourself, was it the right choice...

    I know I have

    Brett is retired and is staying retired

    Let's not forget he busted his *** for 4 years in college. That accounts for something in my book. It's sort of how we decided to draft him in the first round, so it should account for something.
