Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

mahalo to both of you. I love the Skins...been a fan for most of my life. I want to win. I'll be thrilled if JC takes a step up. I've been a little discouraged with his progress. Re, this thread, I've decided that Farve is not the right guy for this team. Aloha.

I have a lot of friends who are Packers fans and most of them are Packers fans because of Favre. He's been the starter since 1992 since before i even knew what football was, so imo i think most of the ppl who became Packers fans within the last 17 years is probably because of him, so I can see why a lot of fans are siding with Favre because he is what made alot of them Packers fans and they just don't want to let go.

I really don't think you'll find many people that will disagree with you here. I think we all know Favre will be a mistake. I believe it was schneed that pointed out that when Favre switches offensive schemes, he is not very good.
In regards to Campbell, on many games a lot of us were just waiting for him to take over a game, he was so close to it, so the glimpses he gave us are enough for me to be very optimistic about our chances this year, especially considering our new coach was a very good qb coach.

I am still curious as to how you can have season tickets to BOTH the SKins and University of Hawaii when Hawaii plays on saturdays, and the SKins play on Sundays. That's a difference of about 4500 miles.

To be fair I think we need to give JC until the end of this season before we can properly judge his progress. He's now got 19 starts under his belt, experts will typically say you need to give a QB about 30 starts before you know what you've got. By season's end I think we'll know if JC has what it takes to be a franchise QB or not.

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Next year the "experts" are going to say it takes 40-45 starts. JK

I agree. He may not even be markedly improved over last year, but if he plays a full season, we should see some noticeable improvement.

What makes you think he can improve. This is his first year in a new offense. We need to win now and Farve helps that plus he knows the west coast.

Why do we need to win now?

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Favre in DC would be a mistake. However it would give us the best chance to win right now. JC hasn't proven anything and Favre is still a very capable first ballot HOF.

I hate Marty for benching #28. BS...

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

If JC can't win this year he should be bagged and tossed in the river.

How,I mean he couldn't lead the team he's been on and with coachs he knows for years to the(back to) super bowl what makes you think he can do it with an O and terminology and personel he isn't use to?

Re: Favre seeks release from Packers (updated)

Just finished watching Giants at Packers NFC Championship game. Favre looked pretty darn good (and lucky) most of the game. I think the Packers are fools to not take him back. I'd take him over Eli or Aaron Rodgers any day of the friggin week!
