C'mon guys. I know we're in the dog days but more Farve talk??? He's not coming back. Dan Patrick is trying to stir up some non-sense but it's just stupid. Green Bay has moved on and turned the page.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

He's done. Let him go. I've always enjoyed watching Favre play but the whole 'will he or won't he', 'is he done, really really and for true done' saga has made me sick of him. Just go away already and the media should just let it go. Isn't there anything else they can beat into the ground?

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I wouln't be to upset if he comes back and I'm one of the those who believes he could be back if Rodgers go down. I know it's unlikely and I guess it could be that I don't want to let go but still I can't wait to see how Rodgers does and to see what happens with this whole "will Favre come back" thing. I would love to see him play again but then again I wouldn't want to see him as one of those guys who stuck around a little longer then he should have...

Thanks Angry. This is the article that I posted in response to. Figured everyone read ProFootballTalk.com. Great site. Shoulda included my source for speculation. Wasn't trying to create a dumbass thread, just trying to comment on current article from a fairly reputable site.

Great and especially reputable aren't exactly adjectives many would use with PFT. Regardless, you should have been more specific with the first post. Don't just assume everyone knows what you're referring to.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Rodgers seems to be fragile.

One phone call from ANYONE on the team to Brett and he'll show up in shoulder pads.

He can't stay away, it was tough enough for him to leave. I bet he's staying in shape.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I don't doubt that Brett still wants to play, but I feel Chris Mortensen's report (which is what SS was alluding to) is more based on Favre simply thinking out loud than actually changing his position.

If Favre tells the Packers he isn't retiring after all, I think there's only one correct way for the Packers to handle it: Make him come to training camp and put him at No.2 on the preseason depth chart. This has to be Aaron Rodgers' job to lose. I think Brohm is the future there anyway, so if there is a time for Rodgers: its right now.

The other two options are: release Brett Favre, or start him from day one. If you start him, I think you have to let Rodgers go at the end of the season. If you release him and he plays elsewhere, there is going to be a mutiny in Wisconsin.

This seems like a complicated issue with a simple solution: Brett Favre should just move on.

Yeah I'm hearing on the radio that his family is pushing him to play and that he also has the "itch" to play. I hope Green Bay closes the door on him. If he wants to be the QB then isn't it a good idea to be there during all the camps and off season stuff?? Farve is a classic example of someone who doesn't know how to do anything else with his life, and hasn't planned for life after football. The GB coaches must be so sick of this crap. I know I am.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I loved Brett Favre when he played, but I really hope he just stays in retirement. And if he does come back I would hate to see GB re-sign him. They have been saying that Aaron Rogers is the man all offseason and then they are just going to turn around and re-sign Favre? Give me a break. It's time to let it go Brett.

Favre really needs to just stop talking lol. He's fucking retired and we're still hearing news about him, it's annoying already. Just make a decision and stick with that decision.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Two days ago I thought this thread was, in Schneed's parlance, f...ing retarded; now it's bordering on prescient.

I think that, well I understand Favre's itch to get back to competing, given his position and the nature of the team's transition to a new younger general the negatives of his return would be significant. Unless you are convinced you can win the Superbowl with Favre, and the Packers are good but I'm not convinced of that, he needs to stay retired for the good of the team and his successor.

I guess this thread was worth it after all.

Never say never, especially when it comes to Favre.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I think the only cure for Favre's itch is football, and it will lead him back to the football field. I don't see Favre staying retired, if he ever really was in his own mind for more than a day or two?

WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL


REPORT: FAVRE ASKED FOR RELEASE

Posted by Michael David Smith on July 2, 2008, 7:57 p.m.
This whole Brett Favre comeback story keeps getting more interesting.
Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal is reporting that Favre (possibly with his agent, Bus Cook, acting as an intermediary) contacted the Packers within the past few weeks about returning, and that the conversation ended in Favre asking the club for his release. The Packers refused.
As we’ve previously noted, if Favre does decide he wants to play again, his options are to play for the Packers, or not to play at all — unless he can convince the team to trade or release him.
If the State Journal’s report that Favre contacted the team about returning is correct, the Packers may have told Favre that they’re ready to move on, begin the Aaron Rodgers era, and save the $10 million-plus Favre is owed this year on his current contract. That’s where a request from Favre that the team release him would come from.
The Packers placed Favre on the reserve/retired list on April 25, but Favre can request that the team activate him from the list, in which case the team would either need to put him on the active roster, trade him or cut him.
