Re: Brett Favre Decision

I more hate the medias handling of it and that makes it overflow to Favre. If I have to here MAdden say "He's just having fun out there, or He's like a kid in a candy store." one more time I will throw a beer through the TV. I've always hated Favre because of the media, they love him so much even a stupid play gets passed off. Namely one, where knowing he was over the line he threw a forward pass for a penalty instead of runnign and sliding for a gain. The media just laughed meanwhile Longwell went on to miss the field goal. It's been that way as long as I've watched Favre and while it's not his fault, I don't dislike him I detest the ora that is Brett Favre

Amen. He's the media's Golden Boy who can do no wrong. If any other QB made the same inept follies as Fav-rey has gotten away with over the past few years, they'd argue for criminal prosecution. But not Fav-rey. After all, he nearly got sucked into a tornado a few years ago ...

Re: Brett Favre Decision

What "crimes" has Favre gotten away with recently? I'd really love to know what he's done that's so horrible.

He's a putz.

Look Matty, I don't have any evidence to back up my gut feeling about the guy.

I just think he's a putz, that's all.

Fair enough you don't like the guy, but what about your false statements about him being responsible for the team's failures the past few years. As I pointed out last year is the only losing season the Packers have had under him. They've been a perennial playoff team for over a decade now. At least give him some respect for what he's done on the field.

He's a putz? Good argument. I think Carson Palmer is a putz. Cincy should cut him too.

But seriously, I'm not surprised at all by the bashing of Favre on this board. To me it just seems like bitterness, since Washington hasn't had a quarterback that anyone cared about his retirement since Joe Thiessman.

Re: Brett Favre Decision

How about Farve being a hypocrite?

He's called his own players out in the past for holding out. And now does the same thing 2 years in a row. I must say I'm sick of hearing about it. But I think Farve needs to take a long look in the mirror and see how He looks to the rest of us.

Fair enough Matty, as far as his whole career goes. You have to give him credit, hes been great at times, or should I say was great.
But as for the past few years, he has really played recklessly & I believe the team has been bailed out by the running game, driver & walker, and a decent defense. If he did say what are they going to do, cut me? then he does deserve some criticism. Hes the qp, not the GM & hes taking advantage of his status IMO. I dont begrudge him too much for it though, hes facing a major change in his life. But I do think its fair to say that hes not acting in the teams best interests right now & that as a player hes nowhere near his mvp years. Bottom line for Green Bay is that this team lacks a lot & Farve coming back is unlikely to get them to the playoffs no matter who they sign.

That's funny...when did Favre miss camp? When did Javon Walker miss camp, for that matter? Walker said he showed up out of respect for Brett Favre and the team. I remember hearing an interview on NFL Radio where they basically tried to bait Walker into saying that Favre should mind his own business. Walker just said that when a guy like that says he wants you in camp, you know you're an important part of the team and he hoped the organization would listen to Brett. So, basically, he got Javon into camp.

Fine, if it makes you happy, I'll retract my statement about his poor play as a factor for "the past few seasons". Yes, he's put up a hell of a lot of stats and more than likely gets into the HOF. But let's not lose ourselves in orgasmic convulsions about the notion that somehow he single-handedly carried the Packers to winning records since '93. There are other guys on those Green Bay teams who dominated the game at the time, along with a superb collection of coaches that put it all together. No, I don't take anything away from his accomplishments, but by the same token, I don't think we can dismiss his 67 interceptions over the past three seasons at some pretty inopportune times that no one seems to care about.

I won't however, allow his current demonstrations of being a whiney little bitch take away from my overall dislike for the man. Not to mention this long held love affair the media has for their Golden Boy.

Call it bitterness, call it whatever you want. I never claimed that my gut feeling about him being a putz was a "good argument". It's my gut feeling.

Deal with it, or don't. I don't care. He's a putz and I'll be glad when he's gone.

Why does everyone keep saying "past few years"? The Packers were in the playoff the season before last. He had a poor season last year, because all his weapons were injured. ALL of them, except the #2 receiver.

And the only reason they were good before was because of the running game, receivers and defense?!?! So you're basically saying they won, in spite of Favre. Please find anyone who knows anything about football, that agrees with that comment. The Packers haven't had a top tier defense in six seasons. And to claim that the offense is only good because of everyone except the quarterback(especially when the QB is Favre) is ridiculous.

Let's take a look at his actual numbers rather than just throwing around claims about him being any more reckless in the past few years vs. Favre in his early years.

Last year was the first time since 1993 that he's thrown more INTs than TDs.

For his career he's thrown 255 INTs, or an average of 17 per season. During that time he threw 396 TDs, or 26.4 per season.

So let's get real, he's never been a QB that you would call a game manager, or a guy who limits his INTs and plays conservative. He's always been an all or nothing, force throws into tight spaces, and go for broke kind of QB. An old fashioned gunslinger in the truest sense.

He's always been the kind of QB that will throw 15-20 picks per year, but you could also count on 30 or more TD throws most years.

If you take a look at his numbers from season to season, there's not a whole lot different between what he's done in the last 5 years when compared to his first 5 years as a starter, or the middle 5 years or so. He's a high risk, high payoff QB. Always has been, always will.

Prior to the disaster that was the 2005 Packers, he was coming off one of his better years in 2004 when he threw for 4088 yards, 30 TDs and 17 INTs and a 92.4 rating.

I don't think his game dropped off that much last year, but the team round him did. The injuries piled up and by the end of the year he was throwing to guys like Rod Gardner and handing off to Sam Gado for petes sake.

Seriously, try making the comment that Skins were good in spite of Mark Brunell and see how this board explodes. And we all know that Favre is a far better QB than Brunell.

Well, last year Farve wasn't better than Brunell...that's a fact!
