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:
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

If it was EGO driven lot of the guys left over from Sherman would have been gone by now..

There is something else there that the public doesn't know..

Hate to say this but I think you are WAY off base here and you have no real proof other then mass hysteria thinking it was ego

Ok seriously&lt; I don't think anything you say can be taken seriously. Hopefully you are just trying to troll the board (which is against the rules obviously) and get a rise out of everyone. Otherwise... well lets just leave it at that lol

The thread was brought in to recognize the job Mike McCarthy has done and not so much about Ted Thompson and what he did or failed to do with Favre.

However, since we are on the subject, here you go.

I though how Mike McCarthy handled Brett Favre was very McCarthy-like.

HE was the last guy in the Packer organization to really deal with the whole Favre issue and he wanted to know ONE THING.

"Are you ready and able to let all that clutter go and come in here and play football?" He didn't want to talk to Brett about his hurt feelings or why he was mad at Ted or anything else for that matter. Had Mike McCarthy not INSISTED on Brett Favre convincing him 100% that he would let the past go Favre would still be here.

But Mike McCarthy is a FOOTBALL COACH. He doesn't give a rats ass how many TD's Brett Favre threw last year or in his career. Your either all in or your out and Mike McCarthy has never looked back on it either. I doubt he ever will.

Mike McCarthy stacks success'. After game one he's got one to build from.

and that's all he's after this week. I like that.

Um...

Could we go back to discussing Mike McCarthy and recognizing the contributions he's done to the Green Bay Packers?
