I don't think it's as simple as you make it sound but I'm with you GB I'm sick of people bringing the thing up again, which kinda makes me wonder why you started this thread. Let's just enjoy some football cause the lousy offseason seems to come soon enough

Favre retired. That should have been the end of it- he had a great season and could have ended his career with a bang! (Not to mention some dignity.) The entire Packer nation wept and mourned over the loss of their hero- a legend. Time passed and we learned to somewhat accept it. I'm sure there are a lot of you (like me) who bought all of the SI issues and prepared to honor Favre for eternity. It was coming to a close...
And then he decides he wants to play again. Rodgers had already been promised the starting spot- he had long waited for this and it was most certainly his time...his team. Favre came back out of the blue and basically demanded his spot back, and for the next million days Packer fans were held hostage by non-stop coverage and DRAMA. He's played the "retiring game" way too many times- but this time it went too far. Not only was he an ass about getting back on the team that had moved on, but he betrayed us all by accepting a position on the NY Jets team.
Now, we all know the gritty details of the entire story so I won't go into that. What I'm saying is that Favre made a huge mistake. Had he stayed retired he would have actually kept all of his fans, and would've been known as having a great last season with a team that was always loyal to him.
The Packers are 2-1, with that one loss to a very VERY good Dallas team.
The Jets are 1-2, and now Favre is injured. Not only are Rodgers's stats better, but the Green Bay fandom has accepted him with open arms. We love the guy. I hear so many people say "Favre who?"...and he deserves it. Yes, he is a legend, but it's time to move on. A new era has begun with Aaron Rodgers, and I have a feeling he'll be around for quite a while.
The Jets can have our sloppy seconds...
I wonder what they'll do next year when Favre retires?
or doesn't...
or does?
Have fun with that mess.



First of all I am drinking because its my birthday, so excuse me usually I am a very nice person..LOL..

First off, Favre had every right to change his mind and want to play again!! Yes, he could have taken the 20 million and went home to Mississippi and sat on his bum, he chose not to because of his character and the love for the game. Favre said this could have been resolved before the media got a hold of the story. He didnt betray NO ONE, he wanted to play football, the Packers no longer wanted him so he moved on to the Jets so what. I am happy that he did at least I can still see him play football and I can enjoy at least this year or hopefully next watching him still act like a kid on the field.

Favre still has some Green Bay fans supporting him, I for one and there is probably lots more, plus all the new fans he has made in New York. And I know lots of you will not agree with me on this one, I do believe if anyone wasnt loyal here it was the Packers organization not Farve
, he wanted to come back to Green Bay, but he knew they moved on with Rodgers not saying that was a bad thing to do being they still had to watch out for their future.

I also was very angry when watching the last Packer game last weekend, I did see one sign held up saying "Favre who". Now this is total disrespect for a man that has given the Packers organization 16 years, someone that has played through injury, his fathers death, his wifes breast cancer etc...I could go on and on. I understand that Rodgers is now the QB and thats great, but lets not disrespect someone that has given his all.

As players get cut or have moved on, they end up on all different teams, doesnt mean they get sloppy Packer seconds, some of them end up doing quite well and I said some. LOL...

The Jets should be proud to have a legend playing as their QB, one that still throws the ball and can play at a high level.

On how Favre has played his whole career and for the many years he has played I think he has every right to take his time on what he wants to do. Retirement is a big deal, this means that he would never play football again, something that he loves. So I for one would be willing to give him all the time necessary to make up his mind because you know why? He is worth it. No matter what happened with the Packers, he will still be a legend and go into the Hall of Fame which he so much deserves.

I am behind Favre 100% playing for the Jets just like I was 100% behind him when he was with the Packers.

I for one can say I hope Rodgers does well this year, I will not trash anyone like you are here trashing Favre. Carry on...:)

Brett made the mistake of leaving his best years behind in Green Bay.


He didnt make a mistake, even if he looses all the upcoming games for the Jets he is still having fun playing the game I for one think that accounts for alot. If I play a game and I have fun playing the game then win or loose it doesnt matter.

I am sure Favre would love to win all the games he plays, but if he dont he still says its fun, and when you get older you realize things that are more important. When you are young you dont understand it.

So...yes I do think it was a mistake on HIS part.
It's like breaking up with someone- and then after the other person has already moved on, you say "uh, yeah, lets get back together now, even though you're with someone else."
So...I hope that somehow the Jets and Packers end up playing each other in the post-season. That would be an incredible game. Not to mention a bit odd to watch.


Again he had every right to change his mind.

She replies to those three posts, but not mine.

I'm going to flush my knee down the toilet now.

But lets face it, Brett had to work for his money, with every injury he had I am sure he will pay for those as he keeps getting older. :)

Are you serious with this? Well, atleast its in the right area this time.


Brett was playing the Cardinals, a team that I believe has given up a touchdown or two in the air lol

That's not discrediting Brett, but hasn't he had a heckuva time against Monte Kiffin's defense dating back to to the NFC Central days?

It's amazing what a QB can do when he has time in the pocket, now isn't it?
