I think you're due some change back.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

At least now we can firmly say that Favre is definitely not coming here. Not with our current cap situation.

No joke - JT sealed the deal on that one.

After only 20 pro starts? I think you didn't have much patience to begin with.

I might have agreed with you before the playoffs last year but nope not now.

Seriously...I don't understand some fans' aversion to letting a QB develop.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Two full seasons under the same offense, as the starter.

By the end of this season we'll have a good idea of where we stand with him.

Well, I think the things that made Favre great, you can't teach. IE: Heart, tenacity, longevity. If you actually follow Brett, you know he makes a ton of dumb mistakes...meaning I would not really want him as a QB coach. Taking chances and throwing off his back foot were all monikers of his game that I don't want JC picking up.

I don't know if you can teach recklessness.

"Hey Jason, that last one was a sack you didn't need to take. Back in my day, we would all pop 12 vicodin pills before the game, and then right before I got drilled, I'd toss the ball in the air off my back foot in the direction of the tallest guy on my team. It worked pretty well for me, I suggest you give it a try."

Access Vikings: Blog Archive Report: Packers have Favre’s phone records

Note to Brett Favre:

When you are trying to be sneaky and cut yourself a deal with the Vikings, don't call Brad Childress or Darrell Bevell on the cell phone the PACKERS give you.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Mike Ditka said today that he would take Farve in a minute. The guy will fight to win, and that's the kind of mentality the Redskins need.

OK, ok. We're not going to get him. I know a lot of you guys love Jason Campbell, but I have a concern about that calm demeanor thing when he continues to make huge mistakes without any emotion.

Where's the fire in his belly?

Calm demeanor? Wasn't it after the first Dallas game that Campbell broke down in tears because he was so emotional?

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Some of the fiercest competitors in the league (and in my experience, life in general) are "quiet types". Histrionics does not equal either leadership or competitiveness. John Unitas, aside from his skills as a QB, was widely acknowledged as the leader of his team. He wasn't demonstrative, but no one, and I mean NO ONE, had any misconceptions as to who was in charge of Johnny U's huddle.

More recent example, Joe Montana - "Hey, isn't that John Candy". Also, according Joe Gibbs, Doug Williams (remember him?) had one of the calmest demeanors of any QB he had seen and found that to be one Williams' stongest attributes.

Not saying JC is in that league yet. But he may prove to be. Who knows 20 years we maybe saying... Damn, why can't we get another QB with ice in his veins like Campbell.
