Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I think the Vikings would be a better fit then the Bears. The Vikings would be a scary team to play with Favre as there QB.

Yeah, but the Bears are their biggest rival and would bring out more anger, hatred and insanity from the GB fans. More entertaining to watch.

Yeah, but the Packers play the Vikings in their opener on Monday Night Football. Talk about drama.

If you put Farve on Det. he might throw 40 to 50 TD's.

I think Farve should take up this option. He'd be the first player to ever be paid not to play. That would be a stat I would like to have.

Who could say that they paid not to play football?

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Honestly I would love to see him play for the Vikings They could possibly have the best offense with Favre/Peterson plus it would sure as hell make the season opener on Monday night football alot more exciting.... but I'd still rather see him play for the Packers

That's the most reasonable explanation for their behavior, but it still doesn't make sense. The upside of allowing Brett to come back greatly outweighs the downside IMO.

One of our local stations is doing that 32 teams in 32 days thing and one day this week they did the bears and had one of their reporters on the show. He said that LLoyd has looked very good in camp but did ? weather it would carry over into the season.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

i don't think it's fair if the packers are allowed to give him 20 mill to NOT play,and have it NOT count on the salary cap.i don't care what kind of package they put it in,that's cheating the salary cap any angle you look at it.i can't see why more fans and players are' making this a big deal.just cause he may be the best qb ever does'nt mean the rules should be bent for him.
