    That would have been 6 INTs instead of TDs had it been BrINT playing against Da Bears instead! :D

    Favre averaged 1.5 turnovers per game (interceptions + fumbles lost)

    HIS ENTIRE CAREER. That's why his brand of football isn't seen anymore.

    Yep...said it a million times. When a guy takes as many chances as he did you're going to, by definition, make some plays that look amazing, but also make just as many that kill you.

    Rodgers first toss at home against the Vikes... he throws over Jordy's head because a safety was creeping over.. only Jordy was getting it or it was going out of bounds. No chances.... brent trys to make that throw and it gets returned for a pick 6 and that entire game is 100% different with him at the helm.

    Curious that he didn't mind getting booed when he was a Viking, or so he says, and considered it an honor but now he is doing what he can to keep from getting booed by reaching out to the fans.
    Figures that he would change his attitude about that when he changed his mind about retiring.
    Yeah, same old BrINT.

    Favre really did turn the ball over a lot, particularly given that his yards-per-attempt is rather short, especially when the Packers' receivers had a ton of yards-after-catch. In short, Holmgren couldn't trust Favre to throw the ball more than 10 yards downfield, so there was a TON of dink and dunk built into the Packers' offense. And Favre was still below average in INT's against his peers.

    But Favre did do a lot of great things as well. It just rubs me the wrong way that Favre absorbed nearly ALL the credit for the Packers' success for a decade and a half. All the John Madden man-crush "only Brett Favre can ........" conditioning people to believe that it was ALL Favre. There's no doubt Favre is a HOF QB, but rates with the Dan Fouts' and Jim Kelly's versus the Montana's and Brady's and Graham's of the HOF QB pool. Favre was over-hyped from that tier into being Montana wrapped in Brady wrapped in Graham wrapped in Jesus. It went to his head and it led to a bevy if ill thought out decisions. For me, Favre eroded away his goodwill even before he went to the Vikings. And he's not done a whole lot to rebuild any goodwill with me.

    Favre has said that it is/was HIS legacy to do with as he wished. As far as I am concerned, his behavior the three years PRIOR to retiring, and the three years after, burned bridges. I understand that certain ceremonies and gestures are required (number retirement, ring of honor), I just wish they'd get on with it and let everything slide into the past.

    I have great memories of the Packers, but I can honor that time period while not dropping to my knees over Favre. Just get all this over with.

    Bart Starr to the right of him, Aaron Rodgers to the left of him, Benedict Arnold in front of him, Judas Iscariot to the rear of him. Brett Favre's retinue escorts him to midfield for his number retirement and Packers' hall of fame induction...

    I think they should have a separate ceremony for him that doesn't take place during a game.
    That way all the Fail lovers will be there. He won't get booed. Packers could make a few extra bucks by charging like $20-25 per head. And those real, true Packers only fans who have season tickets yet who hate him won't feel shafted being at that game and for those of us watching at home we won't have to put up with that crap though I just might leave the room after seeing if he gets booed or not. (Or else I'll just FF the DVR during that part. My girlfriend though still likes him and we might have to fight or compromise somehow.)
    That way everyone would be satisfied and that's how it should be for those who support the Pack.
    I know that some of you have a piece of paper which claims you as an owner but it seems to me that the Packers don't really recognize that and it's time they did in some ways or at least show that they really do care and listen to the fans that own the team.
    It seems to me that they could give you owners some power in decision making that doesn't have to do with really effecting the team itself.
    For instance, what to do with BrINT Fart and how to handle that situation.
    All it could be is just a survey to get input.

    I saw Mr. Favre on one of the Football shows the day Peyton Manning was set to beat his record for touchdown throws.

    Manning did it.

    It was Manning's day and Favre could not keep himself out of the conversation.

    "Well, you know, I had a pretty good run myself."

    The man is an insecure little narcissist (off the field).

    Having said that, it can't be denied that he, Reggie White and Ron Wolff brought the Lombardi Trophy back home.

    So let's retire his number and be done with it and him.

    This is the first and last comment I'll make about number 4 on the forum.
