    and TT says about Brett, "He's good, man" as in, hes cool. So i think Favre might really come back now. I was on the "Favre is gonna retire" side of the fence, but now I am changing sides. I think #4 is back.

    That's what I was hoping to hear from TT. Great news. Watching the press conference, I got the feeling that TT knows Brett is returning, or at least that there is a great chance of it.

    I thought I heard TED say he had ATTEMPTED to call Brett and Brett had attempted to call back but that they had not actually spoken.

    No that was McCarthy. TT has spoken to Brett a couple of times.

    I wonder if he told him about the MM hiring or was checking to see if he has decided yet?

    This doesn't make sense. Why would TT contact Brett about the coach when TT has said numerous times the players don't dictate who the coach will be bah

    trom this is the second post of yours that i question the source and information ... are you doing drugs an not sharing with me!! :p

    I picked up this topic piece on another forum and found it relavent to this discussion because this is what top leaders do with talent when they have it. "They involve them in decisions for the benefit of thr organization".

    All organizations have top performers, specialists, geniuses - call them what you want. One thing is common: they are integral to their organization's success. Top managers learn how to surround those people with what they need and want to succeed, while making sure the rest of the organization hums along smoothly.

    TT has made his choice at coach without consulting Favre - or the rest of us. I don't think anyone is arguing that he should have. But Favre has been a top-level qb, a top performer, for Green Bay - and still has a few more years, by all accounts. He still qualifies as a "top performer" who has earned the right to have his needs addressed. Not necessarily catered to, but at least considered. I see nothing wrong with TT and his new coach having a heart-to-heart sit down with Favre about where the team is going; what concessions can and will have to be made to get in some better talent; and whether it is even realisitc to believe those moves can get the dysfunctional product we saw on the field back on track within Favre's window of a couple of years.

    Favre has set his conditions for returning: that he play for a team that intends to contend for championships. If TT can't convince Favre to return, then TT better be able to tell the rest of Packer Nation what we can expect from his leadership in return for letting Favre walk away.
