ESPN reported that he went down there to tell him...excuse me, politely ask Favre to keep his ass at home!

Dayum!!! Brett must have really pissed these guys off with his rant!

I really don't see how it is going to get better by doing that! Brett is only going to get louder now!

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

The Packers are in panic mode right now. Their solution is to beg him to stay home?! What a joke.

I just read somewhere (one of the blogs on the Washington Post's website, I think) that this might open the door for Farve to get unconditionally released from the Packers. I think it's like what happened with McNair and the Titans.

At this point I feel like Farve should just buy and Arena League team and he can play as long as he damn well pleases.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

The Packers handled this well until they told him (supposedly) they don't want him in camp. If they let him report as 2nd string qb & didn't say anything else, they could still gracefully bench Rodgers if by the end of camp they thought Farve had earned the job back. Or they could just see how he likes being 2nd string.

IMO the latter would've been the smart thing to do, even if it puts pressure on rodgers. I keep forgetting that this team went to the nfc championship last year. You'd think they'd want their vet qb back to get them to the super bowl. This was personal from the get go, they were tired of being jerked around by Farve for 3 years, now they're returning the favor. But the way they've acted this week, they're starting to make it an even bigger problem for the team than it was at the start.

In the end, I think that's just what's going to happen. GB is going to have to release him and then face him twice a year. I just don't understand why GB has such a problem with cutting him. If they're so confident in Rogers and the rest of the team then line up and play him when he goes to Minn. What a bunch of pussies.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

If GB is really trying to prevent him from playing ANYWHERE, then yes, he should show up and make them play him, cut him or trade him to another team.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Thank God Favre has provided a story line for those sports journalists who prefer not to actually discuss football. I don't know why they don't just buy dresses and watch Days of Our Lives. It's also unfortunate that Mark Murphy has gotten draged into this. He's a smart guy, though, and perhaps he can broker some sort of solution.

Yup I see it the same way. If you're confident enough to move forward without him, but you don't want to face him, that's not exactly a ringing endorsement of Aaron Rodgers to me.

Man up and let him go and be done with it.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

All i know is Murphy is praying that Aaron Rodgers has one helluva season because if he doesnt alot of fans aren't going to be very happy knowing we could have put in a Brett Favre who can obviously still play (especially with his success last year going 13-3). I just can't wait till all this drama is over with

I agree with you that they don't want Farve but they do not want to face him twice a year. I don't think they will just release him but rather they will take something less than a 1st round draft pick. I'd like to keep this going and see him show up to camp ready to play football. It would make GB a circus and would be great to watch.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I think the Packers were jaded by Favre's near-return in March. They are concerned he'll suddenly change his mind again, and with the regular season so close it's a risk they don't want to take.

What if Favre does come back, and just totally tanks it? It's unlikely but what if he just has a Cris Dishman-like fall? Wonder what the feeling will be then?

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

It's already a circus and will continue to be so.

Reporter: Has this become a distraction for the players and Packers organization?

Rogers: Not really, I'm just taking this one day at time. As far as I'm concerned, I'm the guy until I hear otherwise.

three months later.....


Reporter: Aaron, you guys are now sitting at .500 and you've thrown more interceptions than touchdowns so far this season. How have you been able to block out the Brett Favre distraction?

Rogers: (turning to Favre) Brett, you want to answer the man?

It dont matter who the QB is if they have a bad season fans will be pissed off at the Packers for making the decision of who was picked as the starting QB. Whoever the QB will be better have a pretty damn good season...

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

i'd taken a proven commodity over an unproven one everytime.that's why i think the packers are morons if they don't let favre be the qb.rogers has had 3 good quarters,(all last year in dallas),and fre has 16 years worth.i'm scared if the packers strt favre,i'm a lot more relaxed if they start rogers.
