you are 100%correct.he'd be sol if that happens.if favre stays and rodgers leaves,seattle would be a great place to go since holmgren is gone after next year.would'nt you be surprised now if favre did'nt come back after all the fuss he's made?can you imagine the scene if the gods of football are willing,and favre signs with the vikings?on the day he is supposed to have his number retired,he's the starting qb for the MINNESOTA VIKINGS?????
why can't shit like this happen in dallas,ny,or philly?

We're not talking about Manning or Brady.
Who says he was sitting on his ass all offseason? Somehow I doubt that he didn't keep himself in good shape. A few weeks of camp and he would be ready to go.

The Packers should definitely trade Favre, they can't let him back.

I thought that at first but after I heard he decided to play again back in Feb or March (not sure of what month) then decided to stay retired again is not helping his cause. What happens if he gets into camp and then decides to retire again? With the way he has been going back and forth I think the coaches have made the right decision.

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

Yeah he's gone back and forth but I really doubt he would show up for camp and then decide to retire again.

Even if he is in shape this back and forth crap wears thin on everyone and it's worn thin on the Packers. Plus what team wants to deal with all this? NFL teams want a QB that they can depend on and you can't depend on Farve. Classic case of a guy that didn't prepare for life after football. He just doesn't know what to do with himself.

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

You can count on Favre where it counts and that's on the field. If I'm a GM with a playoff team and I need a QB, I'm looking at Favre no doubt.

I get the same impression. He'd even said in interviews this spring that he was doing nothing. He also asked mccarthy if he could be an asst. coach.

You're missing my point. What team in the NFL is going to want to do a one year or bust type of deal when they've already put all the work towards getting the current starter ready? So far no one. And that includes us. That's one of the reasons GB doesn't want him back. Rogers has been there all off season busting his ass and they think he's ready to become an NFL starter.

What playoff team would want him? TB? He's not going to push them over the top cause they're not good enough to begin with. So what other playoff team would want him?

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

All Farve would do is set us back one more year. I feel this is the year we find out if JC has what it takes to start in the NFL. If he does then we can extend his contract if not then we need to start looking for that guy. Farve is a one year deal and if JC was just picked in the draft and we needed someone to fill in for a year or two then I'd be real happy to see us go after him but its just not the case.

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

No. I like the fact that our #1 and #3 QBs are young, and Zorn will be teaching them how to play the WCO from the ground up. I can't imagine Zorn teaching Favre anything at this point.

I'm really excited about this offense after having suffered through numerous losses when we stopped trying to score with a lead in the 2nd half. If Zorn is anything, I expect him to be aggressive.

No,no....no! Anyone remember how Johnny U. or Willie Joe finished their careers?That was a sin...Brett needs to go and coach a high school team and move on with his life.
