Looks like Aaron Rodgers will be out multiple weeks. Do you think the Packers should call Brett Favre?

IF Rodgers is out for a significant amount of time, he or Flynn IMO are the best options. Both have lots of exp in the system already.

Outside of them, Coleman, VY, may also be able to pick up and not be totally green.

The rest is a total crap-shoot as far as I know.

Elbow injury, doesn't have an arm anymore.

Would you really want Favre to return only to throw an INT at a critical moment?

I suppose his return would help mend fences quickly if he didn't play like crap.

Can they trust Favre to not purposely implode this team out of spite?

Otherwise, work out Flynn. Flynn would have to pass through waivers. You KNOW the Queens or Bares would put in claims just to prevent us getting him.

Matt Flynn cut by a team that has started 2 undrafted QBs (one a rookie) this year and has 2 QBs injured. Also cut by the Raiders in favor of another undrafted rookie. Flynn is shot and the Packers aren't going to and shouldn't sign him. Anybody who considers Favre and isn't joking, seriously just go away.

Flynn is interesting. We saw what he did when he played in GB. So much of a QB being success is being on the same page with the offense and coach. Not all QBs can be a success in all offenses. But some can be successful in specific offenses.

If you haven't watched any of Flynns snaps this year it's not the same guy as when he played in GB. He cannot throw the ball. I don't see any way the GB coaches could watch him play and want to sign him.

I hope Rodgers doesn't miss a game, but seeing Brett Favre take the keys for a month and hand it back to a healthy Rodgers would be a storybook ending. He can end his career on Thanksgiving Day against Detroit and stick around as the backup, as the team makes one more push for a Super Bowl that wouldn't of been possible without him. This is a Hollywood movie in the makings. Jake Gyllenhall stars as Aaron Rodgers. I'm not sure who'd they cast as Brett Favre, though. Ted Thompson's also vital to the story. Think

He never had a very good arm while in GB either. But knowing the offense is the most important thing IMO.
