    Seems like he has the right attitude, dont worry about it's Bretts decision and if he does become a Viking he's the enemy.

    Barnett said the same thing about him wearing purple and becoming the enemy... Maybe it's a rehearsed thing? Maybe after separate showers and diva actions and last year's fiasco they're sick of him?

    I beleive Greg might not care but I think Barnett would make it a priority to land some big hits on Brett

    As long as Favre is around people will want to know what both Packer players and fans think about what he's up to.Here in Ohio where there aren't a tone of GB fans I'm constantly asked what I think about Brett doing this and Brett saying that by friends that know I'm a GB fan.It gets a little old but I usually just tell them the same thing Jennings said along with reminding them that Brett doesn't play for the Packers anymore.

    The approach makes sense. Favre no longer considers himself a Packer so why should we consider him any longer as "ours."
    But it does disgust me to think that for just one season Minnesota will be able to horn in on Favre's Hall of Fame resume.

    "Favre no longer considers himself a Packer"...???

    Neither did Thom P. Tedson....

    Why don't you get on HIS *** for trading him away.

    Jeesh...you people act like you OWN the guy for life, or something....

    Love me some Greg Jennings...I will always love Brett for the joy he has provided while watching the greatest sporting franchise in all of the world. However, I used to be really pissed about it, now I don't care if he wants to still play, go for it Brett. We'll (Packer nation that is) all get the last laugh...First Post! FTW

    Levity Dorsen.....I hate to confuse people with facts. Really I do. Especially when they're happy with their delusions.

    But I have to remind you that FAVRE REQUESTED A TRADE rather than be the backup to Rodgers.

    FIRST he retired, then he wanted his release, then he accepted a trade. The Packers made it clear that he could come back in some other capacity than that of starting QB.

    Favre left the Packers. Period. He wasn't pushed out the door, or traded away, or unceremoniously dumped. The organization made a decision that they were better off with Rodgers than they would be with a Favre who had missed all of the OTAs and minicamps.

    The offered him $25 million to remain retired and associated with the Packers. Favre turned them down out of a blind spitefulness and desire to "get back at" the Packers for moving on before he was ready.

    Those are the facts. Deal.

    Jennings is lucky he had another good QB in the waiting. Looking forward to Jennings having a great year this year.
