Alright, I'm sure this was mentioned during all the brew-ha-ha when it happened 1-2 years ago but I found this post in a forum that interesting:
Quote:
Just think if we had stuck with Favre in 2008, had a mediocre season, and went into 2009, maybe without Favre, probably without Rodgers, and Flynn as the probable starter unless they got a veteran QB to man the team for a year or two until Flynn was (hopefully) up to speed. For the longevity of the team, it made sense for Favre to leave.


Rodgers signed a 5-year contract in 2005 when he was drafted. If we had kept with Favre for 1-2 more years, Rodgers' contract would have ended and he probably wouldn't have signed with us. Now, the poster is even more wrong about having Flynn start because we wouldn't have drafted Flynn with Brohm already picked. All I'm saying is we moved on at a good time. If Favre ended his career after this year, Rodgers wouldn't be our QB and we'd be in a much shittier situation than we were when we got rid of Favre.

I'm not trying to bring up the whole Favre situation again (even though I am) but if you are truly thinking about the future of the team I'm glad we got Rodgers in when we did.

Favre might -- might -- have been able to buffer this team from some of the worst excesses of the past few years (though 4-12 indicates otherwise), but he wouldn't have been the difference between a losing season and a deep playoff run; that's for sure. Teams go through cycles, and this team has been in gradual but inexorable decline for several years. We can only hope that we are or have passed through in the nadir of the cycle and that things will begin to look up soon.

musccy (1h) : Sorry, but no to shields. 9 mil better spent elsewhere.
uffda udfa (1h) : Sam Shields still having headaches but wants to continue playing.
uffda udfa (2h) : Not harsh. Another failure and playoff embarrassment.
uffda udfa (2h) : Aaron cried a little when asked about Jordy playing today.
GoPack1984 (2h) : Dismal season? I think that's too harsh.
uffda udfa (2h) : Packers should have never been 4-6. Dismal season.
GoPack1984 (2h) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (2h) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic
uffda udfa (2h) : •thanks Shakespeare.
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : Mike at the end of the day is with the team every day and knows what is needed and not needed. Don't be surprised if Mike helps push the cha
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : Bated*
uffda udfa (2h) : It won't change until Ted is gone. I await that day with baited breath.
uffda udfa (2h) : Nobody has ever lost a championship game by as big of a margin as us. Title Town revolt.
uffda udfa (2h) : Did I hear wrong or was that the biggest beatdown in championship game history? Nice.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (3h) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (3h) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools
shield4life (3h) : & management
shield4life (3h) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (3h) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (3h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (3h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (3h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (3h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"
uffda udfa (3h) : MM: We ran into a buzzsaw today. LOL. U came with no tools at all.
hardrocker950 (4h) : They showed up and played, we crawled in and died...
mojaveson (4h) : Kudos to the Falcons. I hope they win the Super Bowl.
uffda udfa (4h) : All credit to ATL. Not a word about needing to get better.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Ran out of talent, something we didn't have a plethora of on defense (my opinion)
uffda udfa (4h) : MM: Ran out of gas but proud of his guys.
