re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Good point on the cap space. I'm sure our cap-masters could find a way, though.

Yeah, we do seem to be a lightening rod for controversial player moves. Hopefully a few years of stability will calm that down.

haha, i don't know how smart zorn is yet but its hard to put it past snyder/cerrato. Just think about the jersey sales!!!

But yea this is not happening. No way. Everyone likes to throw our name into the discussion. Every disgruntled player seems to be going to washington all the time. Its not going to happen.

I don't want favre but just think about how cool it would be to see him at training camp. Definitely my favorite non redskin of all time. BUt i hope he stays my favorite NON-redskin of all time.

I don’t care if you agree with me – we’re still going to fight this out! Zorn is a quarterback's coach. The last thing he wants coming into a new team is a HOF veteran who is going to tell him to get bent anytime Zorn tries to give him advice. I think Zorn knows better than to lobby for Favre.

FOX Sports on MSN - NFL - Sources: Packers won't release Favre

In late March during the NFL Owners Meeting, Favre informed the team he wanted to play again, multiple sources have told FOXSports.com. Not only did he insist he was returning, both head coach Mike McCarthy and GM Ted Thompson agreed that he still had something left and they would welcome him back. Despite the fact that those close to Favre have stated Thompson did not want Favre back, Thompson was the deciding factor in agreeing it was not too late to have him un-retire at that time and start for the Packers in 2008.

In fact, team brass went as far as chartering a jet to fly to Mississippi to make it official later that week. The agreement was that the NFL's all-time leading passer would return for the year but help make it easier and palatable for Rodgers, who would have to wait another season to take the helm.

If he could some how get released and go to the Vikings it might end alright for Favre but not the Packers. But I don't see G.B ever letting that happen.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Wouldnt it be kinda funny if he got traded to Alanta?

He could end his career where it all started.

I think that would be the most likely scenario, but would Favre want to play for a rebuilding team? I think he's trying to come back another year to win a Super Bowl, and I don't think that there is current team that is in Super Bowl contention that would need a QB

Except for the Packers......How can he do this to Green Bay? Favre should hang up is cleets or sign with the Montreal Alouettes or the Edmonton Eskimos and get himself a Grey Cup.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Yeah I dont buy that he would come back to play for a rebuilding team either. I think the only team thats needs a QB and could possibly make it to the Superbowl next year is Minn., well maybe also NYG or Dal. And no way they release him to take that chance.

I got to wonder if he wants to come back for a couple seasons.

re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

If Vince Lombardi can come to the Redskins from the Packers, so can Farve. I know the Redskins season ticket holders, including myself, would love to see it. They would surely sell more beer at the games, too. Hey, we did average 20.9 points a game last year. That is not enough.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

i'm not sure an established team would really be eager to pull their current starter for him for 1 year... i mean, he'd help the redskins for 1 season, but with a new coach and campbell healthy, i don't think it's in our long term interests to do that.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

It should be interesting to see how this plays out. I have to admit I almost wish we were in the market for a QB. He's undoubtedly going to go to a contender, he could really tip the balance of wherever he goes. Tampa and Carolina seem like a couple of logical destinations.

ESPN - Now that Favre has requested freedom, consider his 32 options - NFL

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

If I'm another team, such as Carolina perhaps, I might be tempted to call the Packers up and say "what do you want for Aaron Rodgers?" Then the Packers save themselves from any PR mess by not having to trade away Favre and they can just develop Brohm for 2009 or whenever.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

I have a feeling this is going to get ugly for the Packers organization......

Let it get out that the organization forced him to retire. or...
The organization does not want him back. or....
They only want him to be second fiddle...

I have to belive fans will be upset. Thay may lose alot of money. The problem is the organization pushed Bret to the forefront as the face of the team and kept him there through thick and thin. Now the organization wants to wrestle the organization back from Bret. not good.

Possible locations for him (so I thought)
Atlanta (first came to mind, they need a QB and he started there)
Miami (they need a QB bad)
Carolina (didn't come to mind but possibility)
New Orleans
Denver
Jags (?)
Tampa (but only because they are trying to corner the market on QB's)
Cheifs
Jets
