He willed them to win.


I don't know about you, but I think that is what is missing this year with the Pack. We are in a lot of close games, but we tend to be on the losing side of it. It was Brett's will to win that often gave us W's when we deserved the L.

This is great for Brett.

I am pleased for Brett,

He may have finally understood, and is now learning and understanding, what the Packers have tried to "Teach and Preach" to him the last three years.

Brett did nothing "STUPID" tonight. He held back his idiotic tendencies and managed the game like a champion.

Brett's a hero tonight.

Randy Moss looked at him in the over-time coin toss and said.... "Throw an interception." Randy knows Brett. Brett loves Moss. What more motivation would Brett need?

What kills me is this... If Brett had the mental fortitude he had tonight, Last year. I think the Packers would have won the Super Bowl.

However, if the Packers let him come back.... He would have continued to play great but always play like an idiot when the game was on the line. The reason for thhat I feel was tht the Packer Fans, The commuity, and the Packers organization have always sucked up to Brett.

Now he is in New York.... Now that he he has actually been under "Real Criticism, and been called out for his INT's and idiotic decisions on the field
Brett has been forced, for the first time to listen to a coach. For the first time he has actually been a Team Player. For the first time, this is not about HIM..... But the team.

This is good. This is Great.

I am very happy that the "OLD DOG CAN LEARN NEW TRICKS."

Well done tonight Brett. I only wish the Brett tonight was the Brett that played in the NFC Championship game last year.



For one, Brett has always been about the team and has always been a team player. He was always about winning football games no matter where he was. Yes, the Jets told him to tone down his interceptions, but Brett will always be Brett and thats why he is loved by many. And this OLD DOG can still play.... ARF ARF!! But I for one always knew that.

You have to remember this team was put together pretty fast, and took sometime for them to get some chemistry going. They are a work in progress, hopefully in the games to follow they will only get better.

Congrats Brett and the Jets team for a game well played. :)


HPG, don't waste your time, your words are falling on blind eyes.

Let's see, from what i remember from last January

R. martin dropping a sure TD pass from the guy you(RP)say has never been a team player.

I remember the running game being non-existant, and BF bringing The Pack back twice from behind with his passing game.

I remember Al Harris struggling the whole first half, trying to cover P. Burriss, and remember how the coaching staff decided they did not need to make any major adjustments, they would just live with the results.

Those are my memories from last January. I guess i was dreaming.

Yep, shouldn't have read the thread. Just when I think there's hope for reasonable discussion about Brett, it gets shot down with more non sense.

As I said, I'm glad (from stats appearance) Brett had a good game. I want his stats padded so far out no one can reach them.

I just wish we were all mature enough to see both sides of the Favre 'saga' instead of so many extremists who feel they need to pick and choose a side.

Remember, no one has ever said you can't pull for Favre simply because he's in a different city just the same as you don't have to be a lame ass excuse maker for the guys flaws.

He's not perfect, its one of the many traits we all admire about him.

I never thought of that but that is a good point. With Brett, the team KNEW he had the proven ability to come from behind. Although they say it, I am not sure that Rodgers has gotten that faith yet. Yes, he did drive them 25 yds against the Vikings but then I wonder why McCarthy was OK with settling for position for a 52 yarder.

Nothing taken away from Rodgers. I just don't think you can even begin to quantify the untangibles that a proven HOF'er brings to a team and game situations.
