Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I think the only place where Thompson is wrong is that he isn't working harder to convince Favre to return to the Packers as Aaron Rodgers backup.

As the no. 2 guy behind Rodgers, Favre could be an asset to the Packers, as opposed to a hinderence. If Favre isn't willing to take a backseat to the team's future (and he almost certainly isn't), then he's only hurting his own image.

But Thompson isn't cornering Brett in the same way Brett is trying to corner Ted Thompson, so these two sides will continue to get nowhere.

I just don't see Farve repeating his performace of last year in a Minn. uniform. And I don't think he'd even go to Chi. cause their offense is going to be awful.
You bring up a good point. Whether it's Minni, Chigaco, or wherever, Favre is going to have to learn a new offense. And if that's the case, everyone's already started training camp. So when will he get this new playbook.

The only and best fit for him is --- Green Bay!

We'll see how those Packers fans that want him to shut up feel if Aaron Rodgers has a horrible season (which i hope he doesn't of course) They might wish we have of let our best QB play his last year or two with a real shot at getting to the Superbowl instead of putting all their support towards a QB who's never had a start before (but still manages to get injured somehow)

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I want Farve to show up cause that will speed up the process. I think that might increase his chances of getting released.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I really feel bad for Packer fans. Always respected them and their team loyalty. This PR
fiasco in reality hurts them more than anyone.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Yeah if I was forced to root for anohter NFL team aside from my beloved Skins, it would be the Packers. This sucks for them.

Brett Favre should just report to camp and play his butt off. He'll most definitley out perform Rodgers. I think Rodgers will end up being pulled if it goes into the season as the starter. Favre just needs to sweat it out. He'll be starting by seasons end (unless Aaron Rodgers comes out and blows up).

It's like you guys said, if he goes to another team, he needs to learn a new offense. Camp is already under way. Sticky situation.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Today is the day something is supposed to happen, decision-wise about trading or keeping him.

Sure, Brett could come and outplay Rodgers for the job and could lead them to more wins this season, but like us with Jason Campbell, they had a long-term plan for the future of the team with Aaron Rodgers and it's time for him to take over so they can see if he'll work out. Favre retired and they began planning for a Rodgers-led team. If they scrap that plan, they could be in trouble for the future, especially if Rodgers decides to leave for somewhere he can play without drama or play at all.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

There's a lot of weight on Rodgers' shoulders. He has two young QB waiting to takeover and an old QB that doesn't want to leave. How many more years are left on his contract?

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Honestly I think the whole situation is just sad at this point. I do not think that Favre has ruined his legacy, but watching this play out the way it is playing out is like watching a trainwreck.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

ESPN - Favre forces Packers to make decision, files for reinstatement - NFL

Favre faxes reinstatement letter, also says Aaron rodgers will start every preseason game and will probably get more playing time during preseason games then favre did which means he'll probably get injured before the regular season. Favre might be the starter for the regular season after all...

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy heads to Mississippi to ask Favre to stay at home and not report to training camp. They don't want him playing for Green Bay or anyone else...

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

it's kind of retarded they can force him out of football like that.

i mean, they have to pay him 12mill a season to do it, but still...

That's retarded, if I'm Favre I'm definitely showing up to camp.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

The Packers are in a no win situation here. First interception Rogers throws, fans will be screaming for Favre.

Is this a fact? Or are you just assuming? I read in the article that he was heading there to try and work things out with Favre before things got any uglier.
