OK, mods....delete it now and slap my wrists if you must. I am just friggin's tired of these people who have to ram their "Brett is the only reason the Packers have succeeded" bullshit down our throats...in the face of ample evidence to the contrary....and in the body of threads that have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the aged prima donna.

As was stated earlier, Rod meister....there is a specific place for the gibberish that seeps from your mouth with little prior cranial activity. Stay there!

Yeah, right.

I guess it's because of McCarthy that Favre was good with the Jets last weekend too, eh? :lol:

You people just won't admit when the Packers are bad. Sherman ef'ed up the Packers, yet Favre was supposed to magically WIN with them anyway.

What kind of logic is that? It's a team game, except when Brett Favre is playing, right?

Some of you will think up every excuse in the book to cover up for Ted Thompson and blame Favre.

It's unbelievable.


Dude, this has nothing to do about bashing Favre.. it was about giving Mike McCarthy a pad on the back.
Mike McCarthy game planned and coached last year with a different roster and won.. and yes the QB had a hand in it. We shall see with this roster if he can coach them up to win more than they lose.

So far.. they are 1-0. This year.

But the point is he is consistent with the players, in his approach and fits the Green Bay style.. down to earth, real and humble.

Now, if you want to discuss the Favre factor, we have set a sub forum up in which you can post. If you want to continue to bait the threads that have nothing bad to say about Favre or even are related in any form, then alternative steps will need to be taken.

Why.. it derails the threads and turns them into pissing matches that most want nothing to do with.

If you want to discuss Favre, how you feel he was wronged, please contain those posts in the Favre subforum.

Thanks in advance.


Pack93,

I took umbridge with the statement that McCarthy made Favre "good again", which implies that he wasn't good prior to McCarthy getting there. I am sick and tired of people who are allowed to take pot shots at Favre unchallenged, and not based in any kind of football reality, whatsoever.

The point that some people can't understand is that the football team the GB Packers wasn't very good in '05 and '06, yet they can't seem to separate that fact, from the fact that it was not Favre's fault that the team stunk.

I only reply when people take shots at Favre in the regular forum. I will keep my replies to the Favre forum, if that's what you prefer. Or perhaps, you just don't like contrary opinions. I don't know.

&lt;Edited&gt;

By the way, ILTP39...never said Mike McCarthy was a bad coach. I'd like you to show me where I said that!

Whoa! You really read into what I said.

Brett Favre, for the record, is my favorite player ever and I took enough heat on the other board for saying Ted Thompson made a HUGE mistake letting Favre go. All the regulars remember this.

I also have been on record saying many times that Favre is the best QB EVER, and was the #2 best QB in '07, and both statements I got a lot of flack for.

However, Favre was drifting during the Sherman days. He wasn't at the level he should have been. In '05, he started getting desperate and was doing downright stupid things.
Mike McCarthy calmed him down and got him back on track, and my biggest regret is Favre isn't leading us in '08, because I think this year we could win the SB with BF . Brett just needed one more year in this system and the SB is ours.

I don't appreciate being called a Favre basher, because those who know me know what I stand for.

For the record, I don't think that Mike McCarthy is a bad coach, and I do think that Ted Thompson has assembled some talent on this GB Packer team. I just don't think that he has the talent, judgement, or ability to GM a team over the top, and neither did Seattle, by the way.

Where I do draw the line at is in getting rid of Favre (this will be my last mention of the "unmentionable one" in this area of the forum).

There was no good reason why Ted Thompson could not have welcomed BF back except that he wanted to remove the GB Packers from being Favre's Packer so that they could become TT's Packers. EGO. That is it.

Now if the Pack doesn't make it to the SB this year or next, I believe that Ted Thompson should be fired for making such an irresponsible move when the team was so close to going all the way with BF at the helm.

One thing Digs, since BF is not above the team does it also go that the GM Ted Thompson is NOT ABOVE THE FRANCHISE. Some people here seems to think that Ted Thompson and the franchise are one and the same. I have news for you, Digs, et. al. HE IS NOT.

&lt;Edited&gt;

Oh well, I'll be posting in the Favre forum from now on.

I have always liked Mike McCarthy and think his personal style of coaching will go far
in this league. He is a good leader that seems to listen to his assistants,
and take their advice before making decisions. He doesn't shoot from the hip, but builds a plan
and for the most part sticks with it, tweaking and torqing it each week in order to make it better.

Question: If someone mentions BF in a post, are we allowed to respond to it here, or do we somehow have to take it to the BF forum where it won't be read?

Maybe there should be a rule that no one can ever mention BF ever again regarding anything, unless it is the BF area.

(This is really my last post regarding BF in this area)

Just want to clarify because I doubt that it will be read in the other area, and I want to understand the rules.

Honestly, I have no problem with contrary opinions in the least, it is the lifeblood of a forum.

But the Favre issue just keeps bringing up bad blood and destroys every single thread it is introduced to. Hence the reason for a separate section in which you can discuss your opinions surrounding one of my favorite players all time. Not to mention, no matter how we got to this point, he is no longer a Packer.

Thanks in advance for taking that type of discussion there, and trust me, you will get enough debate there to hold you over even if I am the one that will have to debate it. :lol:
