Down the road? That's a pretty short road. More like a driveway.

Yes it is.

You would think I think this Brett Favre-to-Minnesota story is great, but I don't. I think it's wrong. I think it's a circus. And I think Minnesota coach Brad Childress is making a mistake.

If I were Childress, I'd have waited until Sage Rosenfels struggled -- if he struggled -- and then made the call to Favre. By doing it now, Childress loses Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson; how can they ever trust anything he says now? I'm sure both are furious, and Rosenfels, particularly, is crushed. And the way Favre talked to me three weeks ago, there's a chance he won't last the season and Childress will have to turn to one of his angry quarterbacks.

What Favre told me late last month he wasn't coming back because he felt totally beat after some hard summer workouts, how could he think he'd have enough stamina to make it through a season? He simply didn't think he'd be able to handle the physical rigors of the season. "I just didn't think my body would hold up the way it had in the past,'' he said.

The perfect scenario would have been for the Vikings to see if Rosenfels or Jackson played well enough through a piece-of-cake early schedule (at Cleveland, at Detroit, San Francisco), and if the position was an Achilles heel, then reach out to Favre to see if he was interested. By doing it now, Childress tells his team he doesn't trust Rosenfels or Jackson. That could come back to haunt him if Favre's body breaks down.

Childress has looked like a desperate man throughout this melodrama. He made it known internally that Favre had to do at least some work in the offseason program or the veteran mini-camp to be considered. Favre never showed. Then he had to come by the start of camp. Favre didn't come, opting for his third false retirement in 17 months. Now the Vikings let him come back after the team has gone through training camp. Favre's the wishy-washiest player in memory -- and the Vikings are his enablers. It's ridiculous.

It makes me laugh.
Didn't "Chilly" say just a short time ago that he wouldn't take Favre now?
Yet what does he do?
His team HAS to just LOVE this. (sarcasm)

Interesting.

But, then again.. Peter's probably just mad that he didn't see this coming (read: Favre or Chilly didn't run it by King first).

Zero2Cool (3h) : Maybe this little shout has no value if people gonna use it instead of the forum.
Zero2Cool (3h) : He's not writing. He's shouting, and its making the shout kind of without point with the clutter.
buckeyepackfan (7h) : Just like last year at 4-6. The guy is just too funny!
buckeyepackfan (7h) : GOOD news Uffda is already all but writing The Packers off for 2017!
uffda udfa (12h) : Masturbation talk from Barfan? Nothing could make me COME back, quicker.
wpr (13h) : Maybe the shout box needs to take a timeout. People keep using it. ;)
Zero2Cool (13h) : Why do this is in shout? So frustrating. Post in forums. Thanks
Barfarn (14h) : Masterbation will relieve some of that nervous tension!
uffda udfa (15h) : Now, a guy they really liked and have groomed for 3 years is the guy. Tons of toys on O. Let's see how it runs with a great coach, now.
uffda udfa (15h) : The Flynn Patriots game has been used to say that he is. Seneca and Scott showed otherwise.
uffda udfa (15h) : Hundley is going to settle the debate once and for all in whether Mike McCarthy is a great coach, or not.
uffda udfa (15h) : Doesn't speak well to the talent acquired by the org, does it? Easy to say talent is great until Rodgers is gone and you have to see it wit
Porforis (16h) : Could Sam Bradford come into the Packers and post a winning record from here on out? Are there any non-starters in the NFL that could?
Zero2Cool (16h) : Teddy is replaceable. Aaron is not. Vikings have a really good defense. We do not. Understand??
Zero2Cool (16h) : You are wise enough to know the difference. Right?
uffda udfa (17h) : Here's one for you, Z. Vikes lose Teddy B. and go out and aggressively get Bradford. Packers lose 12 and go out and get a UDFA.
uffda udfa (17h) : :) Evans had a pre-draft visit with Packers.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Put it in a topic. My lord why so difficult lol

uffda udfa (18h) : Oh, Jerod Evans formerly of Va Tech is our Hokie QB plan
uffda udfa (18h) : Was previously on Eagles PS
uffda udfa (18h) : Tweeted the below due to huge chip on his shoulder for going undrafted after leaving early.
uffda udfa (18h) : Packers add Jerod Evans to PS. He went undrafted: https://twitter.com/rodfor6_/status/858382534274682884
Smokey (18h) : NO a 6 point favorite to beat the Packers in GB .
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : Yes!!!!!
Porforis (17-Oct) : "I said that too. Why don't you quote me?? I'm famous!" - Zero2Cool
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : I said that too. Why don't you quote me?? I'm famous!
uffda udfa (16-Oct) : @ProFootballDoc says Rodgers could return Week 14 at earliest, and surgery speeds up return timeline.
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : McCarthy dropped a "bullshit" on packers.com stream. No delay apparently lol
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : @AaronNagler One thing is crystal clear: McCarthy is pissed at the way his team played yesterday.
Smokey (16-Oct) : 2017 Packers are done , time to focus on the 2018 NFL Draft .
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : Mike McCarthy says Aaron Rodgers "suffered a significant injury". Will require surgery. Potentially season could be over.
