I agree. I mean it's Brett Favre. After all he's done for the Pack & the league, he's one of the few guys that has earned the right to write his own ticket. I think this is comparable to Michael Jordan's return to the Bulls, and his situation was far more ludicrous. He left the 3-peat Bulls to play minor league baseball, and when he was ready to comeback, they welcomed him back with open arms. They didn't say, "Sorry, Mike. This is Scottie Pippen's team now. We've got to move on."

The Packers have a way better shot at the Super Bowl this season if Brett Favre is at the helm and not Aaron Rogers. Let him have at it again, if he wants to play.

Everything said about Favre so far has just been overblown rumor, he's done.

Possible suitors could also include the Bears and Dolphins.

See Michael Jordan-Washington Wizards
See Jerry Rice-Denver Broncos
See Emmit Smith-Arizona Cardinals

Some people just don't know when to let it go..

That's not a reputable link, that's just a rumor with no proof.

#1- Favre is under contract with the Packers.
#2- His contract would pay him over 12 mil if he played, which makes it hard for any team to pick him up unless they have a lot of cap space.
#3- He would only come back if he played for a winner (he's made this clear), and while the Panthers fit the bill, the bears and dolphins do not. The Packers had 13 wins last year, why leave that?
#4- Favre would not be a back up, that being said, the Panthers would not fit the bill. Only the bears and dolphins would, but again see #3.

So while we are all talking crazy rumors (especially since Favre himself said there is nothing to all this talk) I think Favre will come out of retirement and sign with the Skins, take over the starting job, but befriends Campbell, and we will the super bowl. Yaaaaay!

Exactly!
And I would add Joe Namath- Rams, Art Monk- Eagles and Johnny Unitas - Chargers.

That being said, Rodgers has proven to be fragile and if he goes down Favre will be on a plane to Wisconsin and starting again. Short of that, don't expect him in uniform this season.

That's just stupid. We have no need for Favre and will not let him play for us.


I'd LOVE to see him on the Bears, just for the comedy and riots. It will be a hilarious way to die.
