    Favre changes his mind on the way to Green Bay today?

    Can you imagine the ripples through the media.. I would like to see it just for that aspect alone... nevermind the joy of Favre returning.. :D


    Maybe we all should trek off to Green Bay and chant.. one more year..

    That would be more fuel for the fire. People complain too much already that he takes his time to make up his mind. It'd become even more of a circus for the press.

    Hard to say..so many mixed reports, but gut feeling is that the moss thing had SOMETHING to do with it..

    But who really knows?

    I read that the packers did actually go after moss. Offered him more money too, as did the Eagles. Moss just preferred to return to NE.

    this was according to Moss' agent

    I do have issue with this. While TT did not bring in any big names, he did quietly assemble the best recieving corp Favre EVER had.

    I don't care about the media's opinion about Favre, I'm just tired of the hoopla every offseason. Now he's made a decision, and I hope it's final. I'm tired of hearing about it.

    Why is nobody talking about the fact that he basically said he doesn't think the Packers can win a Super Bowl, and it's not worth the effort to try. I guarantee if the Packers had landed Moss, Favre would be playing. That's such BS. Not landing Moss may not have been the main reason for him retiring, but getting Moss sure would have been enough to make him stay. I love Favre. I'm a HUGE Favre fan, but I'm sorry, that's such BS to me.

    one more year at lambeau will be heard if the packers start losing. thats my guess anyways.
    either way, i dont think the call will be answered, it will be heartfelt but not answered.

    I don't think it was Moss as much as we were a team the over-achieved this past year.. and maybe in his eyes, with the slow start to FA again... it was can we really make a run again.

    Personally I don't feel that way, but who really knows what is in Brett's heart.. my opinion is he is doubting the committment to give it is all.. que up the two bitterly cold games and watch Favre's facial expressions and emotions.. I think the cold took a part of him away in those two games.. somewhere within himself, Brett might know that as well.

    Once you start to doubt.... that will fill your mind with more doubt.. then it is time to walk another path.

    Favre doesn't want to deal with getting to the Super Bowl and losing. Anyone who has played in the NFL will tell you you can't take anything for granted. Anyone that presumes the Packers are a lock to win the Super Bowl are living in fantasy land. Favre knows that the Packers are a great team but he knows nothing is a lock and for that reason he doesn't want to deal with the mental aspect of preparing every single week and playing his butt off only to possibly lose in the Super Bowl or anywhere else.

    I think I'm just hit harder by this than I thought I'd be, hence the harsh comment I made. After the season we had, it's hard to just pass it off as a fluke, so what he said got to me a bit. He knows what he can and can't handle physically, mentally and emotionally. I think he still has what it takes, but the team may be a few years away yet.

    i think Favre would like another shot to play in a NFC championship game and a superbowl, players dont get bored of playing, they bored of everything else that goes before it.

    I wouldn't be surprised. NE still gives Moss the best chance for winning the SB.

    The thing is, the Packers with Moss would be a close second. We have a comparable D, and possibly a better STs than NE, and a very balanced O.
