    Wow.

    If this is true, this is a dark day in Green Bay Packer history.

    Brett didn't deserve this.

    If this is true, Teddy will be run out of town.

    Re: Favre asked to be traded

    :twocents: Guess Brett has to have a say on team management and certainly has a right to spout off but, Brett is well payed to play the game not to manage the organization. Apparently even Brett feels the players now have the right to direct team management. I'm disappointed in his outburst. Either way; the handwriting is now on the wall and have to believe Favre will not be a Packer beyond this year. Wonder who the new wunderkind at QB will be?

    It's not about Brett directing team management...

    He offered to reduce his own salary so Moss could get a signing bonus. He tried to make himself flexible, and he had heard reports that Moss was headed to GB.

    I have yet to hear Brett went to Ted and told him to get Moss. He talked to Driver about it, about how good it would be to land Moss. That is hardly considered directing team management.

    Not even close Bertram.

    Brett has been a model citizen. All this is coming out NOW, a couple of weeks after the draft. Brett never once went public with his desire to be traded.

    Maybe Brett should be coach and GM.

    This hurts and we should all feel Brett's pain.

    Wow I never thought I'd see the day but I have now lost alot of respect for Favre. He is acting like he is above the team and that it is all about him. I'm so disapointed right now. :(

    I agree Cuban, this is what guys like Terrell Owens do, and now lately Brett Favre. He's destroying his reputation.

    I don't blame Favre though, he deserves better than this.

    He should at least feel like the team wants him around, and he isn't feeling that. That is where I have a problem.

    He even went about asking for a trade (rumoured still) THROUGH HIS AGENT, IN PRIVATE. He is class, but even he should only have to handle so much.

    Yes I can agree that Brett Favre is getting very demanding. Just like owens. I dont know about him anymore.

    Ted Thompson is undoubtedly pounding this team into the ground.

    TO went public with his trade demands.

    Brett went about it the right way, told his agent and then the agent discussed it with Ted.

    Brett wants out, but is still being a professional, he has yet to sound off on anything other than TT's inability to land Moss because of guaranteed money (that Brett offered to have taken from his salary).

    TO noise also started like this, and the interview with him shouldn't have happened, he should never go public with that kind of issues.

    If Brett is displeased, he should speak.

    He is still our franchise player. You can't go about making your franchise player feel unwanted.

    If Moss fell off Ted's radar, he should have told Brett. Talk to Brett, try to show him your side of things, that you may not have gotten Moss but people like James Jones will make this team better.

    Yet it was McCarthy trying to contact Brett.... interesting.

    TT should take some major heat for this - especially if the Moss stuff is true.

    All that said, Brett has been holding this organization hostage for 3 straight offseasons and this is somewhat hypocritical to now get after the team for not moving quicker on an available player. In the past three offseasons, the Packers have had to enter to the offseason with "uncertainty" at QB because Favre wouldn't commit. This makes it very difficult for GB to go out and get impact offensive players unless they seriously overpay.

    At this point, would the Packers have been much worse off making a change at QB going into 2005 when all this uncertainty started? Would a young QB have done much worse than a 38-47 TD-INT ratio and a record of 4-12, 8-8 - with all this added uncertainty for 07?

    I have been a big Favre backer all his career but the reality is that guy is no better than a 71-rated QB at this stage in his career. That's somewhere between Charlie Frye and Jon Kitna. Is all this drama worth it for a 38-year old version of JP Losman?

    I think it's time we let Favre go and start the next chapter of Packer football. If we don't, I fear we will be in the same "outside looking in" position with no future at QB two years from now as Favre chases records with his 71 rated performance.

    What makes you think Thompson didn't speak to Brett?

    wow. brett has gotten too big for his britches. dude thinks it's all about him. he should have retired last year before he made an *** of himself. Players that want out lose the confidence of their teammates. That's why guys like Harrington (thank god), Bly, mike williams, and Josh McCown are no longer lions. they didn't want to be . So don't let the door hit you on the *** on the way out.

    I totally agree,

    I also love Favre for being the player he has been for the Packers,

    however the team is more important than Favre.

    He should be benched or traded for most value after this.
