well said. as risky as this hire was, one thing i don't think we'll see is that conservative ass play calling we've seen the last 4 years.

TB won 9 games and was a playoff team last year even with Garcia missing a few starts and parts of other games. I think Favre would definitely put them on the short list of strong contenders in the NFC.

... Zorn will be using a QB ... Favre is a QB! Redskins have signed QBs in the past! The writing is on the wall...

i'm afraid a one year removal from our days of rampant free agent spending and fantasy team-style trading is not long enough escape this type of wild speculation.

having said that, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THAT IS HOLY, PLEASE LET THIS BE JUST ANOTHER BULL$#!T FABRICATION BY THE FIENDISH INTERNET RUMOUR MONGERERS!

ahem... that is all.

actually I'd say it's been 2 years, the year before we went out and got FA's like Fletcher and Smoot. Not exactly guys that broke the bank and they were guys that we knew would be good fits.

Favre played for Holmgrem-Zorn coached for Holmgren-therefore Favre must be going to the redskins.

I am completely ruling this out. There is not a qualified source of information here. Remember the night you went to sleep believing Al Gore won the election? Another case of presumptive reporting. It would not be prudent or feesible in my mind to bring him on to this team, and I don't think he would need a PLUS in the locker room.

His act is old. He throws too many interceptions, and he has not truly proven to be a leader in his behavior over the past three seasons. I wish he would shut up a go away. He has nothing else to do. Do you really think they would allow him on TV? Have you heard this guy talk. Maybe he should do a Catfish show in Mississippi. That will occupy his time.

Re: Should the Redskins take a run at Favre?

It is getting old and really it is putting a poor light on his career. Why is he bashing GB now?

Sounds like someone needs to learn to grow up and realize the NFL and GB are bigger then him.

I hope he never comes here.
