Go Skins!
I just read through all the posts, cheerleader tryouts are sounding very refreshing about now!

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

This was a good thread to start given the lack of skins news & the fact that there are some internet media/bloggers throwing out the idea that the danny will go after Farve. Like Matty said, R. Tandler presents a decent case in that article, but my gut tells me the Skins will leave this one alone. I certainly hope they do.

Farve, despite a great year in 07, still ended w/one of his ill advised int's. Of course JC ended a few games last year w/picks, but he's learning. Farve still plays w/the gun slinging mentality. At some point in time he will revert to his form of a few years back (not sure which years) when he was throwing picks left and right.

He surprised me, and a lot of people, w/how well he played last year, but let's not assume he's going to be able to match that again. I think Rodgers could probably beat him out in camp.

Let JC develop & be our qb of the future!

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

HELL NO! Brett Farve is like an over aged punch drunk boxer that doesn't know when to quit. He has to be totally humiliated in the ring, or on the field in Farve's case, to hang up the gloves. It's embarrassing to watch an old fighter get beat up by a younger, less talented foe. There is an age limit on professional sports and Farve has reached it for a quarterback.

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

Based on last year I don't see how Favre is over the hill. Bottom line is the guy can still play.

good analogy, only he's got his health. That's reason enough to quit at 38. One hit can change your life.

Over the hill isn't accurate, but a lot of athletes, if not most, have the opposite of the break out year when things start to diminish. He looked older a few years ago to me, and I'm amazed at his durability, but at any point he could slide quickly.

My dad always said that some qb's decline in their 30s because their eyesight changes. I think that happened to Farve in his mid 30s & his poor depth perception made a lot of throws late. He appears to have played through that & adjusted, but on any given day he's prone to thinking his arm strength can get the ball into places it can't. When we start to see more of that, A. Rodgers deserves a chance to play.

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

Let's not kid ourselves, Favre would give the Packers a shot at the Super Bowl, Rodgers probably won't give them that same shot. Just saying. I'm glad I'm not a Packers fan because I would be very torn on this issue.

Good point, guess I've been focused on what the pack needs to do for its long term future more than just this year, considering the team made it to the nfc championship last year.

Apparently though (at least for now), the Packers & T. Thompson don't agree, since they've told him he's the backup.

That's the rub. Who gives you your best chance to win now? IMO, it's Brett Favre. I don't think the Skins should pursue him, but I think that he should be the Packers starter if he decides he's going to play for them.

A Packer fan called into Sirius and made a good analogy: "If you have a winning ticket and another one that looks like a winner, which one do you play?" I think that pretty much tells the tale in the Favre vs. Rogers debate.

They can say that all they want, I think the Packers are hoping that Favre will stay retire and won't show for camp. There is NO WAY they want him showing up to camp even as the backup. Can you imagine the pressure on Rodgers with Favre looking over his shoulder, the potential divide in the locker room and amongst the fans?? If push comes to shove Favre is going to win this battle.

It's definitely a tough decision to have to make, but in the end I also feel that if they want to make a serious run at the Super Bowl, they have to start Favre. Rodgers can either deal with it and wait some more, or they have Brohm to develop if Rodgers jets next year.

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

rodgers would be an idiot if he leaves.do'nt you think so matty?he knows the offense,and unless he wants to end up a career backup like todd collins has 90%of his
career,he'll stay.he has a great future ahead of him if he is patient and man enough to wait.

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

I still can't believe people are talking about this. What team wants to deal with Farve and all his damn drama?? GB has had no trade offers. If someone wanted him that bad then there would be at least one offer. Yes he played well last year but the chances of him playing that well again after sitting on his ass all off season and not working with any NFL wr's is slim. We're not talking about Manning or Brady.

What if Favre tears it up and decides he wants to play out his contract which would be another two years beyond this year. Rodgers would be facing the possibility of not starting until his 7th year... he would be crazy to stay in GB if that was the case.
